Publisher's Summary

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 14-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.
King of Wall Street is a sexy, standalone romance.

I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS LISTEN

Are you ready for Max King? because Harper certainly wasn't.. oh she'd researched and followed his Company with the sole purpose of landing her dream job. But the reality was that he was a jerk.. a charismatic, handsome and drool-worthy jerk who deliberately ignored her and frustratingly went out of his way to avoid her - which was infuriating because she was meant to be working for him. However, it was Max that was secretly getting hot under his collar every time he saw his new and beautiful employee because she was a distraction and constantly on his mind.. and it wasn't at all work related!

Harper was independent but had some serious Daddy issues.. in that he was a rich business tycoon who'd got her Mother pregnant, threw money at the situation rather than any of his time.. and then went on to rinse and repeat. Harper had a Trust Fund he'd set up but she never touched it - deciding that she was going to cut him from her life. But when Max King appointed her to work on a presentation to win her Father's account Harper decided to show her Father what he'd tossed away. But getting closer to Max King was going to be the best and worst thing she'd ever done because Harper learnt that he was nothing like the villain she'd pictured him to be... and everything she didn't know she wanted.

I consumed this story like a tub of Ben & Jerry's... and then savoured in the afterglow. The characters were great - especially Max who was devoted to his 14 yr old daughter, then his Sisters, the Company and nothing much else.. until Harper. Once Max and Harper had 'broken the ice' between them (in a most fevered way) - there was no stopping the sexcapades.. but underneath the sex were two lovers who didn't know what they'd found. Because rather than move forward Harper was still that wounded little girl looking to impress her long absent Father and yet deep down she felt resentment and anger - and Max was a Business Mogul who'd never stopped long enough to let love in.

Worth a credit? The dual POV storyline had heat, heart, angst, drama and heartbreak - the main and secondary characters were loveable and nice - the Hero was everything you'd want from one and the expert narration by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt hit it out of the park. So creditworthy... oh YEAH - even if this 'sex to angst to love' listen was totally implausible in the real world - I didn't care as I love to get lost in romantic fiction.

Checkmate! A Win-Win Story and Narration!

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.

Some spoilers;
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.
