By a Thread by Lucy Score

Release Date: 04.23.2020


I got her fired. Okay, so I’d had a bad day and took it out on a bystander in a pizza shop. But there’s nothing innocent about Ally Morales. She proves that her first day of her new job… in my office… after being hired by my mother.

So maybe her colorful, annoying, inexplicably alluring personality brightens up the magazine’s offices that have felt like a prison for the past year. Maybe I like that she argues with me in front of the editorial staff. And maybe my after-hours fantasies are haunted by those brown eyes and that sharp tongue.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m going to be the next Russo man to take advantage of his position. I might be a second-generation asshole, but I am not my father.

She’s working herself to death at half a dozen dead-end jobs for some secret reason she doesn’t feel like sharing with me. And I’m going to fix it all. Don’t accuse me of caring. She’s nothing more than a puzzle to be solved. If I can get her to quit, I can finally peel away all those layers. Then I can go back to salvaging the family name and forget all about the dancing, beer-slinging brunette.

Ha. Hold my beer, Grumpy Grump Face.


By a Thread is a truly delightful read with an important message of consent and trust.
I loved this book from beginning to the end but I almost didn't survive the slow burn between our two main characters.

Dominic, a director of a fashion paper, and Ally’s, a waitress, journey is not too easy.
They definitely started off on the wrong foot having an argument on a pizza topping but even at that time the chemistry and the physical attraction between them was untenable and they soon discover that the bantering counts as foreplay.

I liked how Ally stands up to Dominic, and how she doesn’t allow herself to be intimidated and overpowered by Dominic’s grumpy, domineering and icy personality. I think they were a great match for each other and they helped each other to grow and overcome their troubles.

This was the first book I've read written by Lucy Score and it won’t be the last.
