I am proud to work with Social Butterfly PR to present the release of King of Wall Street by Louise Bay!
AN AMBITIOUS BOMBSHELL IS ABOUT TO BRING THE KING OF WALL STREET TO HIS KNEES.
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.
‘King of Wall Street’ is my first book to read by Louise Bay, and I must say that it will not be my last! I was quite pleasantly surprised at the depth of this well written story, its’ true to life, endearing, and genuine characters, and the perfect balance of steamy and romantic moments!
Max, well I just loved his character! Bless his heart, behind all of his success in his career was such an inexperienced man in relationships. What impressed me the most was that he was not afraid to put himself out there and try anyway- perhaps it was because of the confidence he had gained from all of his professional success. He was a very loving father to Amanda, and his patience and understanding in dealing with both her and Harper (particularly Harper…) was very admirable and sweet. Although he certainly did have his challenges in expressing himself and was admittedly not perfect, he was a very honest and genuine person and quite charming!
Boy, Harper was such a hot head, and she had tendencies to be a little over the top with her temper and feistiness throughout the story. She was so strong willed and determined which are certainly great qualities, but at times it was almost to her detriment and a little over-dramatic. However, I did understand her reactions and fear of failure, and I liked that both Max and her friend Grace were able to bring her back down to Earth and diffuse some of these moments. I actually think that what made this this story work so well was the perfect complement of the characters within.
Bay’s character descriptions were very thorough and believable and drew me right in from the beginning. The dual points of view really helped to evoke even more understanding and compassion for both Max and Harper by giving even more insight into their reactions in certain situations and their personal and professional challenges. I also liked the underlying elements included in the story, like the importance of family and addressing fear in failure as a part of overall success. I actually read the snippet regarding Michael Jordan to my family- it was very motivational!
Combined with the perfect touch of romance and passion, this was such a well written and sweet romance and needless to say a very refreshing read!
