Review: Lingerie Wars (Invertary #1) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Englishman Lake Benson loaned his life savings to his dippy sister so that she could buy a shop. It was a big mistake. His sister has been steadily flushing his money down the drain – and now he wants it back. Years in the special forces taught Lake that if you want a job done, do it yourself. So he steps in to make the shop profitable, sell it and get his money back. The only problem is, the business is an underwear shop. And all Lake knows about underwear can be summed up in how fast he can unsnap a bra. To make matters worse, the tiny highland town already has a lingerie shop. A successful one, run by an ex-lingerie model. A very gorgeous ex-lingerie model, who’s distracting him from his mission more than he’d like to admit. If Lake wants to get his savings back, and get out of Scotland, he only has one option – wipe out the competition.

Kirsty Campbell has spent years rebuilding her life after she woke up in hospital in Spain to find her body scarred, and her ex-fiance had run off with all her money. The last thing she needs is a cocky, English soldier-boy trying to ruin all she has left. Her home town is only too happy to help her fight the latest English invasion, although Lake is beginning to sway them with his sex appeal and cut price knickers. With the help of her mother, and the retired ladies of Knit or Die, Kirsty sets about making sure that her shop is the last one standing in Invertary.

It’s Scotland versus England as you’ve never seen it before. It’s lingerie war.
It all started when Lake, in a moment of insanity, loaned his life saving to his sister so she could open up a lingerie shop. It would have been a good investment if his sister knew anything about running a shop. Deciding it is time to save some of his money and his sister, he moves to Invertary, Scotland.

He very soon realises what the problem is. It is a pretty small town and right across from his lingerie shop is another lingerie shop. This is owned by ex-model Kristy and she won't let him steal her clients without a battle. It is war!

Though I've never seen a war that made me laugh so hard. The originality of some of these things Luke and Kristy are willing to go through to come out as the winner is hilarious. Not the mention the sparks between these two. All is fair in love and war I guess.

Lingerie Wars was so funny and romantic. All the characters, even the secondary, were very well thought out and developed. The hot scenes were rather romantic than vulgar, which I also liked as it doesn't draw away the focus from the story. It was a very enjoyable read and it made me laugh, a lot, which is always a good thing.
