Blog Tour 4 Star Review - Working It by Kendall Ryan

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

Straight-laced and well-mannered southerner 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 notoriously tyrannical 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.

Kendall Ryan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the contemporary romance novels HARD TO LOVE, UNRAVEL ME, MAKE ME YOURS, RESISTING HER and THE IMPACT OF YOU.  She's a sassy, yet polite Midwestern gal with a deep love of books, and a slight addiction to lipgloss.

I received a complementary copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Down home country girl - Emmy Clarke
Raging bitch boss - Fiona Stone
Gorgeous lickable fashion male model -  Ben Shaw 

I wasn't to sure if I was going to like the backdrop to this story.  I have never been into the fashion world and on occasion have a very strong desire to want to slap those skinny people.  However, after the first  few chapters and one very hunky Ben Shaw I was lost to the fashion and model word.  Ben a male fashion model is completely and total controlled by his agent Fiona which is also Emmy's boss.  Ben has become so consumed with his work and listening to Fiona that he has forgotten some very simple pleasures in life which Emmy is all to willing to help him explore. Really this poor man just needed real food and Emmy being a good ole country girl was happy to help.  There is just nothing like a good beer and blueberry muffin.

Ben and Emmy start up a secret relationship that is full of doubt.  Neither wants a commented relationship with the other, but both want the other in their bed.  The sexual pull between these two is explosive!!!  I must say that author Kendall Ryan has always been exceptional good with those steamy, hot, makes your toes curl love scenes.  *FANNING SELF*

Ben and Emmy will  melt your kindle with the passion they have for each other and leave you wanting to strangle them for their poor life decisions.  Lets also not forget the bitch from hell, boss Fiona.  Oh, now that is a woman I want to slap.  I started to feel a little bad for her until she started her poor me speech.  (fuck me Ben, Emmy will never know) let the hair ripping begin.  That woman didn't just cause problems for Ben and Emmy's relationship she destroyed any amount of trust and hope Emmy had of having a real relationship with Ben .  

Kendall I absolutely love where this sweet, sexy story is going and can't wait for the continuation of Ben's an Emmy's story.  
If you love a hot read with a great secret mixed into the story line.  Working It is a must read especially if you want all the dirty details.
