Publisher's Summary

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 is 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.

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

    Story
    "Wish I would have skipped"

    This book was a complete miss for me. I was looking for a story that took me on a journey and characters that I could love or connect with. Emmy's character was lacking in personal boundaries and it really bothered me. If you don't like how Ben is a sex magnet then why would you have a threesome with him? If you don't like how he gets drunk and hangs out with people doing drugs why would you ignore the behavior? Emmy finally stiffens her spine when she finds out about Ben's past relationship and that provokes a reaction?? I don't buy into her at all.
    And Ben, if you cherish your lady and want her for only yourself don't bring a buddy into your bed. You don't get trashed when you are expecting Emmy to meet you somewhere. You don't lie to Emmy. I won't even start on the situation with Fiona because it was very implausible to me.

    On a positive note I did like the dual narrators and they did well.

    Story
    "Stupid: Don't belive the hype"

    Where do I start, this book was poorly written. The characters were not developed properly. Emmy for 60 % of the book is shown as a sweet girl in the mix of sharks. Then out of the blue she does something that's out of character and did not fit in the story. Ben was not that troubled. I've heard worse stories. I read a book where the main characters family was murdered. I understood why he was crazy acting. I hated most of these characters. I hated the love story. It made no sense why these two people would want to be together. Why because Ben was sooooo good looking and Emmy was an innocent (if you read this book,you will find out that's a lie.) girl. They both were stupid and dummies. I knew I did not want to read anymore of Ben and Emmy's story. I made the mistake (I think) and got book 3. However, book 1 ruined it for me with Brayton. Ellie seems like a angry B***ch.

    "Disappointing"

    I could barely finish this story. The main character, Emmy, was so needy and wanted too much from Ben just after a couple of weeks. I felt she acted more like a teenager. I just couldn't get into it. I did enjoy the dual narration.

    "stupid storyline, weak minded female"

    Emmy is so insecure and has no back bone. Her relationship starts off being superficial and other than Ben sad childhood, he is not much of a man. He doesn't stand up to Fiona nor does he address any of the real concerns.

    Story
    "Working It "

    I feel like I'm listening to some fsog gone real bad. Every time they get to a disagreement all he has to do is feel her up and she's good. And that last problem with Fiona being pregnant, she was so angry and left him then she comes back and he tells her come to my place and she okays it. Then she forgave him and jumps into bed ready to give it to him again. All together I'm surprised I finished this (granted, I had to fast forward it alot). At least the narrator was good.

    Story
    "Book One of Two"

    "Working It" is about your typical small-town-gal , Emmerson (Emmy) trying to make it in the biggest metropolis in the world: New York City. She is from Tennessee in the South and is feeling completely out of her element. After all, this is THE city to work in when it comes to the fashion world, and although Emmy admits that she is struggling in terms of getting along with her boss, Fiona, she is determined to succeed.

    Needless to say, it is hardly boosting one's self-esteem working with models, and Emmy is constantly feeling self-conscious about herself: she is not 6 feet tall, she is short, with curves in all the right places. She is struggling, always doubting herself, especially when she is in the presence of the ever-perfect male model, Benjamin Shaw: he really is perfection when it comes to his physical traits:

    "Seeing his photos on the computer was one thing. Seeing this delicious piece of man meat in person was quite another. My damn mouth was watering. He was tall and poised, with dark hair, broad shoulders, an angular jaw, and a pouty mouth built for kissing."

    The main part of the book is set in Paris, the city of love. For some reason Emmy cannot fathom, Ben singles her out, strikes up conversations with her and, to be honest, rather quickly tries to get into her pants. They very quickly start with sexting (*smirk*) and soon after that they embark on a passionate affair that, eventually, turns to love from both sides. Emmy falls so much sooner for the charismatic Ben, but even though he will not admit it at first, he falls just as hard for her.

    Now, it is completely on purpose that I am being so vague here - this is, after all, to be a review, not just another summary of the book.

    I very much like Emmy: she is a sweet, Southern girl, has had a very healthy upbringing and although very insecure in the beginning, she finds her strength as the story unfolds. Not being a size 2 myself, I completely understand her self-esteem issues, though they became a bit too much at times even to my liking. I liked how she battles with herself when it concerns giving in to Ben's seductive ways - it seems natural to me.

    "Asking me not to fall in love with Ben was like asking a meth dealer not to let you get addicted. Not possible."

    Ben...oh, Ben....swoon! Well, like I stated above, he is the epitome of male perfection. But underneath all his physical attributes he hides himself from the world, not letting anyone see the real person. He makes no excuses for wanting Emmy, but he is, in fact, rather reluctant to seduce her when they first meet:

    "If she knew the depravity lurking inside me, she'd flee for Tennessee without a backwards glance. I'd devour a girl like her. Own her. The thought was intoxicating."

    I find Ben to be a very complex person - which is, I believe, Miss Ryan's intent. As a reader, it was not difficult to fall for this damaged hero, especially when reading about his VERY unconventional upbringing. Like Emmy, I loved how he could be so sweet and caring, but at the same time much the dirty talker in bed. Phew! Ben is the dark to Emmy's light and even though they, theoretically, should be all wrong for each other, this fact is actually what makes them perfect together. That is my opinion, anyway.

    I like how the whole fashion scene seems to be well researched and how the author shares all the "secrets" about how the industry really works. There was no point in the story I did not find it to be believable, and that is very important to me when reading a book.

    All in all, I loved getting to know Emmy and Ben, and I am so glad that Miss Ryan gave us Ben's POV throughout the book. I really enjoyed reading how Ben slowly falls in love with Emmy and especially when he realizes this has happened. It put a HUGE smile on my face!

    "I'd never wanted a relationship before, but this hit me like a smack to the head. I wanted all that and more with Emmy. My sweet Southern Belle. The idea of calling myself her boyfriend put a stupid little grin on my face."

    Like Kendall Ryan's previous books, there is plenty of sexy moments - and yes, extremely STEAMY scenes, ladies - lots of drama and angst in "Working It", and I truly believe you will not be disappointed if you are a fan of her other books.

    The narrators were great!
    I got really fed up with Ben being so stupid about fiona. Elli was a bit forgiving, more than I think reasonable but someone had to be an adult. Lots gping on, fast paced. Enjoy

    "Hott!"

    This book gives us an interesting insight behind the scenes in the world of modeling. I instantly felt for the down-to-earth, somewhat-out-of-place heroine, Emerson, or Emmy. The chemistry between her and hott male model Ben is intense. I felt her insecurities, but then also how much Ben wanted her, and then how much he owned her body. It's fun to watch a man who doesn't do romance fall into the romantic. A very sexy read.

    The narrators did a great job at voicing the characters.

    "Models Drama"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Working It to be better than the print version?

    It was a good companionship for the book, it made it hotter


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the sex! it was hot!


    What does Shayna Thibodeaux and Jason Carpenter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the sex scenes were hotter. Sadly, Ben's chapters were so short, I couldnt experience the magnificence of Jason, but Shayna did great.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Drama in Prada


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book. It was interesting and despite I was annoyed at the beginning of it, I kept listening to it and ended up loving Ben.
