Book Review: Working It (Love by Design #1) by Kendall Ryan

Emmy is a sweet southern girl trying to not be overwhelmed by New York City and all the beautiful people she is surrounded by at the modeling agency where she works. Supermodel Ben Stone is the most beautiful of them all and she can't help but be a little smitten with him. Ben doesn't do dating or relationships but once he sets his sights on Emmy, he is determined to have her. He tries to convince them both that a 3 month Paris fling would be perfect, but neither can deny the feeling that start to develop the more time they spend together.

I have read a few of Kendall Ryan's books before and this is definitely my favorite so far. You've got a sweet and naive heroine, a devastatingly handsome and sexy hero and of course a crazy ex who also happens to be Emmy's bitch of a boss. All of this makes for a hot and angsty read. Some of the plot was a little predictable, especially in relation to bitch boss Fiona, but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book. And Ben's dirty mouth was probably what I enjoyed the most.

I had not realized this was the first in a trilogy so I was a little bummed that their story didn't wrap up at the end. While there are plenty of questions waiting to be answered in book two, there wasn't any super major cliffhanger. So at least that makes waiting a little more tolerable. I will absolutely be checking out Craving Him to see what happens next for Emmy and Ben.

"Tell me what you want." His lips rubbed against mine as he spoke, our forheads resting tgether.
Was he serious? I could feel his erection nudging me. "Please."
"Beg for it, baby."
"Bennn...I need you...deep inside me..."
His guttural moan sent a new wave of wetness rushing against his hardened flesh. He was teasing me, running his slickened manhood along me, making me whimper.
"You want me to fuck that beautiful pussy, baby?" Ben pressed his hard tip against me without entering.
"Yes please. Ben, fuck me."


I took her hand and pulled her behind the partition that separated of a small area for changing. There was a dude behind there buttoning up a shirt. I tossed him a look that he accurately read as Get the fuck out. He made a hasty retreat. Smart guy. because I was three seconds away from having Emmy's panties around her ankles, and no one was going to see her bare little pussy but me. I wanted to smell her, taste her, devour her. Never had a girl gotten under my skin so completely. I had to have her.

Title: Working It
Author: Kendall Ryan
Series: Love by Design
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
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.
