Social Butterfly PR is proud 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.
Harper is a smart and driven woman. One thing I like about her is that she never bites her tongue, and she also has a witty sense of humour. On the other hand, Max King, her a**hole boss, is a hard businessman but also very reserved, he has an iron fist around his privacy. Reasons enough to prompt lots of misunderstandings between them that keep this at odds-relationship on its toes. They fight it, they deny it, they try to put closeness on hold, but it creeps up on them through the very appetizing enticement of hot desire.
I had fun with this kind of dynamics. It was also enhanced by two elements that added layers to the story. For instance, Amanda, the boss's daughter, who truly shows off the best part of this man's personality. Whereas Harper has this family issue with her father that connects really well with everything related to her admired and later on hated boss.
The narrative is good, well paced, with fun dialogues, plenty of heated encounters with both characters challenging each other, and I had the impression that they really got to know each other and fall in love.
The way that business and personal life mingle to create emotional turmoil worked really well for me. Both characters evolve through the contact with each other. The dialogues are fun and help the scenes to create a unique feeling of a relationship being built. Max's family, especially his daughter Amanda, blended seamlessly in the couple's dynamics.
I really liked Max and Harper, their strong points and their doubts. They were real and appealing to me. Also, the beautifully passionate encounters didn't hurt at all :-D The epilogue was a fun surprise too. Wonderful romance! I never tire of this author's smart and fun stories.
