Working It by Kendall Ryan | Book Review

Boob Blurb:
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.

Book Review:
Reading inside information into a male model's thoughts and life? Yes please. I was ready, willing and able to read Working It. 
Kendall promises steamy sex and hints that there may be sex toys involved. Interested yet?
While Emmy's brain always tells her NO! when it comes to Ben, she can't turn him down, ever. Emmy's character reminded me of an Anastasia Steele personality, but add a bit of country into it and some sexual experience. 
Emmy had to deal with Fiona, a real bitch of a boss reminiscent of Devil Wears Prada, or Ana Wintor, but younger. She was always criticizing and dismissive of Emmy. It seemed like one minute Emmy didn't care about the shaming, but in another scene she would be totally demure. 
Ben has a complicated relationship with Fiona. I get him and I agree with Emmy's later confession that maybe she was a bit too hard on Ben. However, if I was Emmy, I would totally (and do) have the same insecurities that she has/had. 
Overall, 3.5 stars for Working It because I like the originality of the scene. Who doesn't want to know more about the modeling scene and read explicit sex scenes with a well hung man.....or two?
