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.
The King of Wall Street is a sexy, stand alone, contemporary romance.

King of Wall Street is a standalone romance that is unrelated to any other books by Louise Bay.

Harper Jayne had one dream after graduation; to work for the King of Wall Street. Having achieved it, she is now working as a junior researcher at King and Associates; she should be living the dream, shouldn’t she? Alas, it has been a huge disappointment and for one reason in particular. Max King is an arrogant, rude arsehole. Even if he is the hottest guy she has ever laid eyes on.

Max King. Successful business man and loving single father. He has it all, or does he? He prides himself on being able to maintain the perfect separation between his professional and private persona’s and for one very good reason; his 14 year old daughter Amanda. That is until a certain junior researcher comes to work for him. She is a complete distraction and as irritating as a bad skin reaction. But she could also be Max’s game changer.

Max King is mine… just saying!!

I have to say, I rarely read this genre of books anymore, the typical business man meets lowly employee. Not because I don’t like them, more a case of having overdosed on them post Christian and Gideon. But very occasionally a book will catch my eye. This book had every element that draws me in. The title, cover and synopsis were punchy and I had to give it a go. The author was new to me, but I will willing to dip my toe, and let me tell you I am seriously glad I did.

The story line flows and is sexy and humorous. But it also builds into a real romance that has you hoping these 2 stubborn characters can step out of their normal MO’s to see how perfect they can be for each other.

Harper is one seriously feisty chick. She doesn’t take any shit and makes Max work. But she also has a real sensitive side due to real daddy issues. You then have Max who I just fell in love with. The perfect father, he has sacrificed his own love life so that his daughter can have his undivided attention when he isn’t being the King of Wall Street. Neither has much experience in relationships and lots of mistakes will be made, but along with the secondary characters, who really added to the storyline, it makes for a bloody great read.


If you used to be a lover of this genre, but like me fell out of love with it, I urge you to read this book. The writing is brilliant and the storyline and characters engaging. There is a genuine reason this book has over 40 5 star reviews on Amazon UK alone. I will certainly be reading more of Louise Bay’s titles in the future that’s for sure.
