THE KING OF WALL STREET IS BROUGHT TO HIS KNEES BY AN AMBITIOUS BOMBSHELL.
I keep my two worlds separate.
At work, I’m King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I’m always right. I’m shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless.
At home, I’m a single dad trying to keep his fourteen year old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there’s a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.
When Harper Jayne starts as a junior researcher at my firm, the barriers between my worlds begin to dissolve. She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever worked with.
I don’t like the way she bends over the photocopier—it makes my mouth water.
I hate the way she’s so eager to do a good job.
And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck.
If my two worlds are going to collide, Harper Jayne will have to learn that I don't just rule the boardroom. I’m in charge of the bedroom, too.
The King of Wall Street is a sexy, stand alone, contemporary romance.
King of Wall Street is a sexy, standalone, contemporary romance by Louise Bay. Louise Bay is a go to favorite of mine for sexy romances. I have seriously loved all of her books. I don’t think she has ever gotten lower than 4.5 stars from me. (you can see my reviews of her books HERE) King of Wall Street might be my favorite book of her yet! I loved, loved loved that it is a standalone romance. Harper and Max are fantastic together and i am super excited that I didn’t have to wait for multiple installments to continue with their story.
King of Wall Street is told in dual narrative between Max King and Harper Jayne. Harper is Max’s newest employee, and she also lives in his building so their paths just keep crossing. Which is bad news for both of them because Max can’t stop thinking about her, and the only way he knows how to deal with that is to be a grade A jerk to her. And Harper just thinks he is an ass. Which as I am sure you can tell, leads to something pretty explosive between them. But King of Wall Street is more than just a great romance. It is also a really sweet story. I loved the back story with Max and his daughter. I liked that she was already a teenager, and I loved that it was her that was doing most of the encouragement for Max getting a girl friend. It was very mature of her. In fact, all of King of Wall Street was refreshingly drama free. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved that.
Louise Bay always impresses me with her stories. I know they will be very well written, very well thought out, and have amazing characters with even more amazing chemistry. If you have not yet read a Louise Bay romance, I think King of Wall Street is the one you need to start with. And you need to read it ASAP. It is my favorite book of hers yet! I want more Max and Harper. Maybe we can write Max’s sister’s story and we can see them again? HinthintwinkwinkLousie. 🙂
Bottom line: This is a fantastic romance. One of my favorite reads of 2016, hands down. Read it now.. @LouisesBay has done it again! King of Wall Street is a @BookBriefs #Romance #TopPick of 2016. See why Click To Tweet
