Summary –

Emmy Clarke is out of her depth in New York City’s fashion world, but when she lands a job as an assistant at a modeling agency it seems like the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Working under the notorious Fiona Stone is a nightmare, but there’s one distinct perk: ogling the ridiculously hot male models who parade through the office—particularly rising star Ben Shaw.

Ben is everything Emmy’s not: exquisitely gorgeous, highly paid, and well-traveled. He’s also got more issues than Vogue. Emmy looks after Ben on photo shoots, but she refuses to become another one of his lusting groupies. Ben finds Emmy’s refreshingly real attitude to be surprisingly attractive.

Against a backdrop of the most fashionable cities in the world, casual flirting turns into an illicit affair, but when Ben’s twisted past is revealed, and the bitter Fiona catches wind of their relationship, their careers and hearts are threatened.

Note: This book is intended for mature audiences. It contains sexual encounters and graphic language, including a m/f/m encounter. (Thanks to for the summary)

My Thoughts –

Where does the story take place?
Is the title a good/bad choice for the story? 
Good – IT was definitely worked, if you know what I mean…
List the top 4 characters and 1 word to describe them each. 
Emmy – fresh, Ben – Whoa, Braydon – great, Fiona - B
Did you cry, laugh, sigh, cringe, fume or feel nothing? 
All of those and more!

Holy hell was this book smokin’ hot!!  I read it in one sitting and am sure my cheeks were flushed when I got done with it.  I think Ben and Emmy are a great pair and their chemistry was off the charts.

Emmy is your typical small town girl.  She falls for Ben, and falls for him hard.  She’s kind of oblivious to bigger things going on around her.  Ben is like whoa.  Seriously.  He’s the SHIT at the agency and he knows it.  He’s kind of arrogant but makes up for it during smexy time.  Braydon is a hoot – I can’t wait to read more about him.  Fiona is like the biggest B in the world. 

I think Working It is a great story.  Well-written, fast paced and easy to read.  I love the cover, it sure is hot – just like the story.  Great job to the author – I WANT MORE!!
