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—it makes my dick twitch.
And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck. It makes me want to strip her naked, bend her over my desk and trail my tongue all over her body.
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
By Louise Bay
He is Dad first, King second…
I really liked King of Wall Street. I found myself sucked into the storyline from the first pages and the more I got to know Max, the more I liked him. First of all, he puts his daughter above everything. That’s kind of refreshing as most books I read “say” that the hero or heroine put their children first, but Max “shows” that he does. He knows what’s going on in Amanda’s life and plays an active role in bringing her up. He has a good relationship with Amanda’s mother, Pandora and Pandora’s husband, Jason, as well. Like I said, refreshingly different. Max’s work is a priority but only to support Amanda to the best of his ability.
Now, Max, he’s no monk but he doesn’t allow himself to have relationships because his life is full enough as it is. When Pandora and Jason head overseas for work, it’s time for Max to become a full-time parent. This will definitely curtail his “play-time” and he has a wee bit of frustration that he needs to work out. See, there’s this new woman in his office and he can’t stop thinking about bending her over his desk.
Harper, hate to say it, but she’s got some issues and those issues started at the hands of her neglectful dad. Any relationship she starts is guaranteed to be an uphill battle. So, with her “issues” added to the fact that she has the HOTS for her boss, I’m going to need a lot of convincing that this is a good idea.
I enjoyed King of Wall Street and finished with a big smile on my face. This was my first read by Louise Bay and will definitely not be my last. Her writing has a touch of humour, a touch of sweetness, mixed with a whole lot of spice. The characters were interesting, the storyline kept my attention and the connection between the couple was very easy to see.
If you’re looking for a HOT and STEAMY office romance with a single father devoted to his family, then I definitely recommend King of Wall Street.
