A story of heart-stopping, toe-curling passion by the New York Times bestselling author of Hard to Love, Resisting Her, and The Impact of You.

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.

This book was very enticing. Emmy has her dream job but the worst boss. But however bad her boss is, her job had its perks. She gets to ogle at sexy, hot male models. That's a job I would love to have myself. Now they're all fun to look at but when one actually showed some interest in her, she wasn't sure what to do. Should she walk or rather run the other way or have some fun and go along with the flirts? Well what kind of book do you think this would be if she turn the other way? Emmy threw caution to the wind and took her chances.

Ben started flirting with Emmy via email and text, at first Emmy was hesitant. But when a famous and gorgeous model like Ben comes knocking on your door, you slam that door wide open! And that's what Emmy did.  But it was time to have some fun and that she did. I really enjoyed reading their messages back and forth. I don't know what it is about authors who write text messages or emails in their books, but I really like it. I like books that have emails or text messages between the characters. I think it's cute. Their flirtationship was fun to read because had good chemistry together.

A lot happens through out the course of their relationship that makes me this book steamy. Their intimate scenes was smoking hot. There's even a scene involving a cock ring. Yeah, exactly. It's super steamy. However, there was a part of this book which involved two characters and their dilemma was completely unbelievable.  It's no way imaginable that, that could possibly happen. I wish I could get deeper into it but that part has a big "Oh sh*t" factor. Other than that, I liked the relationship between Ben and Emmy. She may need to get a bit more head strong because she completely melts when it comes to Ben. 

If you're looking for a steamy book with lots of steamy sex, pick up Working It. You will not regret it. I give Working It 4 stars and a definite Good Choice for Reading!!
