Publisher's Summary

In this sexy debut novel, a high-stakes deal pitches the power of Wall Street against the savvy of Silicon Valley - until a young woman's death threatens to topple it all.
The Social Network meets The Wolf of Wall Street in The Underwriting, as it takes you behind closed doors into a postrecession world of sex scandals, power plays, and underhanded dealings.
Todd Kent is young, hot, and on his way to the top of Wall Street when the eccentric founder of Hook, the popular new dating app, handpicks him to lead its IPO. Given just two months to pull it off, Todd and his investment banking team - brainy Neha, party-boy Beau, and old college flame Tara Taylor - race to close the $14 billion deal of the decade. It's the chance of a lifetime for Tara, too, who sees her opportunity to break through the glass ceiling and justify six years of sacrifices for her career. But nothing is what it seems in Silicon Valley, and when tragedy strikes Stanford University's campus, there's no telling where the sparks will fly.
Read by MacLeod Andrews, Cassandra Campbell, Mark Deakins, Lincoln Hoppe, Jorjeana Marie, Ozzie Rodriguez, and Tara Sands.

Kept me "Hooked"

I was engaged from the very beginning, the story flows as we tag along on a journey to take the popular app Hook public. The characters are fleshed out and quite despicable, and there's a few twists I won't reveal. My only issue with the Audible version is it actually had a moment of censorship, there were beeps during a particularly racy scene and any mention of the correct version of the female anatomy. Seriously??? While this didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book, I was a bit perturbed by the juvenile beeps and non-disclosure from Audible, although they may have rectified it by now. Still, by this book! It's just fun!
