What it’s about:
I’ve worked a decade for this. I’ve sold my soul and my reputation. I’ve lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this inheritance.
And then … she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my—
It doesn’t matter. I’ve played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind. I can keep my secret until the ink dries and everything is mine.
Alessandra Torre’s latest contemporary romance, Hidden Seams, is set in the fashion industry. The author has again shown her readers the strength of her storytelling talents. While Hidden Seams doesn’t have any major twists, it does have plenty of minor twists and a very satisfying storyline
Hidden Seams is told in dual narration by the main characters Marco Lent and Avery McKenna. The leisurely start to the novel allows for thorough character development. The gorgeous Marco Lent caught the eye of fashion mogul, Vince Horace. The two struck a mutually beneficial agreement that ultimately resulted in a long, loving relationship. Strikingly beautiful and street smart, Avery is financially successful but alone. Her rough beginning makes it a bit difficult to believe how smoothly she blends into Marco Lent’s multi-million dollar lifestyle.
Marco and Avery have vastly different backgrounds. They meet under the most unlikely circumstances, and yet, their chemistry is undeniable. At times, Marco behaves like the biggest jerk to Avery, however, his animosity is primarily about denial and self-preservation. In fact, both characters are highly motivated by self-preservation, and their surface animosity just barely masks their overwhelming appreciation for one another’s fine, fine looks.
I loved how this story evolved and the characters blossomed. This romantic, engaging story is humorous and sexy, and the conclusion is nothing short of perfection.
