WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT
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.
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.
WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK
I did not like the King of Wall Street by Louise Bay as much as I wanted to.
The reason is I didn’t like the first half. Even in a sexy romance novel, I don’t like my protagonists to belt out some serious action under the sheets just a few pages into the novel.
Harper considers herself to be an independent woman. Plus, she considers all boys to be douchebags. So, I couldn’t digest the fact that, in the first few pages, Harper spends a night with Max only because both found each other attractive.
On the other hand, the second half is more fleshed out and gives ample space for the romance to blossom. I liked how Max kept thinking about Harper all the time. He admired her tenacity and smartness and wanted her to be a part of his family.
I also liked how both were honest with each other even at the initial stages of their relationship. Bit by bit, Harper saw the caring attitude of her otherwise arrogant boss and slowly fell in love with him.
Overall, it was a good read.
