Title: King of Wall Street
Author: Louise Bay
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 22 August 2016
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.

One of my new favourite authors, Louise Bay knows how to
write a sexy alpha and Max King definitely is one.
Harper Jayne has always held a dream to work for Max King
and she has finally achieved that working as a junior researcher. She is out to
prove she can achieve the career she has always wanted and especially without
her absent father’s help. Yes Harper has issues with her father, a man who was
never there for her growing up so why does she need to know him now?
Max King is an enigma, on the outside he is the king of cool
and his standoffish demeanour hides the proud and lovable father he is in his
private life. After an accidental pregnancy with his best friend at college, he
is now the proud father of Amanda. Now he is looking after his teenager Amanda
who lives with him, after her Mother has temporarily moved abroad with her new
husband. As amicable as Max is with Amanda’s mother, he has shied away from any
relationship since, he keeps his hook ups far away from his business life and
especially his private life with his daughter. But then along comes Harper, the
new girl in his office who he cannot stop thinking about. To detract from his
attraction to her, he ignores her.
Harper finds it hard to do anything to get praise from Max
but then when they start working closer together this attraction cannot be
denied, even more so when Harper finds out he stays in a condo in her block
through the working week. Trying to keep a distance proves to be the pinnacle
that brings these two together, initially as a one off hell of a hot night
together. But then things get a little more intense.
This was one hot erotic read as I have come to expect from
Louise Bay. Max King was absolutely stunning and a joy to read and devour.
Harper was also immensely likeable and I was on her side from the start. It was
great to get to dig deep into each character and find out their insecurities
and what makes them tick (mostly each other!) The way that Max struggles when
his two worlds of business and personal collide was absorbing to see unfurl and
how he brought them both together. I also loved his support of Harper and her
struggles with her father, who also happens to be Max’s hero in the business
This was a well-constructed, fast paced storyline full of
passion, deep attraction and chemistry. One definitely not to be missed. Fall
in love with the King. You will not be disappointed! 4.5 stars.
