"The King of New York" takes a cab...hmmm! No! "The King of New York" lives in a building; penthouse or not, that has studio apartments...that's another, NO! Custom Italian handmade suits that only cost $3k. Another NO! "The King of New York's" daughter is in the basement of said building doing laundry. No! WTF. And is living in the same building as one of his entry level employee's. hahahaha NOT!
If you are in the mood for INSTA love. This is the book for you! If you don't care about the character fitting the mold the author sets up for you; then again this is for you. This just was a no go for me. I listen to most of my book at 1.5. To get this over with I listened at 2.5 while doing a million other things.
Harper's relationship with her father and the fact she had a best friend that actually gave great advice was the most interesting part of the story to me.
Narrator's were great! 4 STARS!

This is the first story I've listened to by Louise Bay and it ticked off everything I love in a steamy romance. A captivating plot, well developed characters, realistic dialogue, chemistry and some very steamy sex scenes. King of Wall Street was a heart warming plot who's H/h had a funny and rocky start, but things quickly heat up as the sexual tension between them ignite. Bay did an outstanding job developing the chemistry and romance between these characters.
Harper has inspired to work for Max King. She's followed his career and while going to college she has groomed herself to be a perfect fit for his firm. When she lands her dream job at this firm as a junior assistant, her "new career bliss" is shattered. She quickly learns King is infuriating, demanding, and critical of her work, even if he gets her heart racing.
Max King knows he's hard on Harper. He doesn't intentionally try to be harder, but he's been attracted to her from the beginning and is trying to keep their working relation professional and distance between them. Up till now, he's done a good job keeping his personal life separate from his business life. When he learns she lives in the same apartment as him, he disregards all his rules when she some comes knocking on his door to confront him about the loud noise he is making in nothing but a silk robe. Their heated kisses turn into amazing sex. They find themselves trying to balance work and their "extracurricular" activates, but things get a little complicated when his daughter starts looking towards Harper for assistance with her upcoming prom and King lands an opportunity with a client who happens to also be Harper's father.
I'll be honest, Sebastian York and Andi Arndt are one of the main reason's I took a chance on this story. These veteran narrators know how to deliver an awesome performance.
Fans of Lauren Blackely, Winter Renshaw and Meghan March would enjoy this story. It was steamy, sweet, heart-warming, and well worth a credit. I enjoyed it from start to finish and will definitely be looking for more audios by Bay.

Very nicely balanced story with a little drama and enough hot stuff to keep it interesting but not so much that it becomes dull, well balanced so many books of this genre aren't hence 5 ☆
Harper is a great lead lady and it's nice that King was just a steady guy with a teenage daughter, I loved the interplay between dad and daughter.

I just loved this standalone so much. The story is beautifully written in dual POV. You know the story, two people not in the market for love, fighting the pull that they feel every time they see each other. Harper is hard headed, strong, independent and beautiful. Max is, well, what is Max? He's strong, sexy, successfully, charismatic, a fantastic father, a true family man, loyal, did I say sexy, handsome and a complete and utter God? Oh and did I say sexy as hell? I was hooked from the get-go. Light, easy, fun and flirty. A true sexy office romance to get lost in. The narrator's are perfect, got the characters nailed. Got to say, can't go wrong with Sebastian York, ever! Thank you Ms Bay.

This was the first book by Louise Bay that I've read and I absolutely loved it!
I absolutely loved the hero in this book, Max King. He's hard as nails when he's at work but when he's at home he's a devoted and loving father.
Harper, has just gotten her dream job working for King and Associates as a researcher and she cannot stand her boss! She thinks he's a jerk (to put it politely) and just wants someone to acknowledge the hard work that she has been putting in. When Harper moves in to her new apartment in Manhattan, her upstairs neighbour puts on a show for her and her best friend Grace.
What she doesn't expect to find when she goes to knock on his door the following night is that her upstairs neighbour is her boss!
The relationship that develops between the two of them is gorgeous! I loved how Max's attitude towards Harper slowly softens throughout the book. The plot line was fantastic with a couple twists in there that keep you intrigued all the way through.
I can't wait to dive into the next book!
I know we could all listen to SebYo reading a phone book and swoon, but honestly when he's paired with Arni Arndt you just know a good book will be turned into a brilliant audiobook! And this audiobook definitely deserves all the accolades its received.
The characters are 3-dimensional, butting heads because of blurred perspective and stubbornness, while the realisation that there's something more than physical attraction brewing between them only comes through their interactions with others. And those others are great characters in their own right, woven into the story with purpose but also given enough depth to be truly memorable. The dialogue is witty and natural, translating perfectly into audio, and the story itself is really terrific. This audiobook left me feeling happy - without my teeth hurting from too much of the sugary stuff! When written this well, there's just something surprisingly feel-good about a devoted (& super sexy, high-achieving, successful businessman) single dad having his teenage daughter trying to hook him up so she can get a baby sister! Such an easy 5-star rating!!
