Adrianna Kline has everything she’s ever wanted. As the founder and CEO of Adrianna, Inc., Adrianna gets to spend her days developing a product, upscale lingerie, which combines her two favorite things – her company and sex. But Adrianna’s world comes crashing to a halt when Tristan Locke, her first lover and the only man she’s ever loved, shows up in her office. Tristan now specializes in corporate takeovers and he’s set his sights on Adrianna, Inc. In order to save her company, Adrianna has to sexually submit to Tristan for one night.
It’s been fifteen years since she refused to move to Los Angeles with him, but Tristan has never gotten Adrianna out of his mind, or his heart. He knows the last thing the fiercely independent Adrianna would ever want to do is to be sexually subservient. He also knows if he ever wants to have a relationship with her, he must prove he’s strong enough to bend her to his will. But will Tristan be able to keep the upper hand in the face of rekindled desire, or will his bargain with Adrianna turn into another power struggle?
There’s nothing more fun than watching an evenly-matched battle of wills. Adrianna’s Undies features two stubborn protagonists, each bent on having their way. Having watched her mother’s constant, unsuccessful search for love, it’s understandable why Adrianna would be so dead set against letting anyone have power over her, though she’s taken her need for control to a bit of an extreme level. Tristan, the more flexible of the pair, is a perfect match for Adrianna because he knows her so well and is himself stubborn enough to prove to her that, when you love someone, you don’t always have to be fully in control. I delighted in watching Adrianna and Tristan find balance in their relationship and it was a joy to watch them learn to trust one another with their hearts.
It would be a crime to write about Adrianna’s Undies and not mention the sex scenes. Lacey Alexander writes scenes so hot it’s necessary to check your surrounding reading area for scorch marks. Tristan and Adrianna truly compliment one another in every aspect of their relationship, be it boardroom or bedroom. A wickedly erotic tale from beginning to end, Adrianna’s Undies is not to be missed!
