THE PRINCE OF PARK AVENUE FINALLY MEETS HIS MATCH IN A FEISTY MANHATTAN PRINCESS.
I’ve made every one of my billions of dollars myself—I’m calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It takes drive and dedication to build what I have. And it leaves no time for love or girlfriends or relationships.
But don’t get me wrong, I’m not a monk.
I understand the attention and focus it takes to seduce a beautiful woman. They’re the same skills I use to close business deals. But one night is where it begins and ends. I’m not the guy who sends flowers. I’m not the guy who calls the next day.
Or so I thought before an impatient, smart-talking, beyond beautiful heiress bursts into my world.
When Grace Astor rolls her eyes at me—I want to hold her against me and show her what she’s been missing.
When she makes a joke at my expense—I want to silence her sassy mouth with my tongue.
And when she leaves straight after we f*ck with barely a goodbye—it makes me want to pin her down and remind her of the three orgasms she just had.
She might be a princess but I’m going to show her who rules in this Park Avenue bedroom.
A sexy, standalone, contemporary romance.
Park Avenue Prince is a standalone romance, however anyone who has read King of Wall Street will already know our heroine Grace. You do not need to have read the latter to enjoy this book, however please do as it really is a great book and introduces you to the characters that pop up throughout this one.
Grace Astor has lived a privilege life. Brought up on the Upper East Side and living in one of the most exclusive apartment blocks on Park Avenue, you would expect a Princess. But one thing Grace wants more than anything is to find her own way in life, not relying on her family money to get what she wants. So she has never dated anyone deemed of her social standing, refuses to live in Manhattan and has financed the opening of her new gallery by herself. Her opening exhibition is as exciting as it is frustrating. Having to promote her cheating ex isn’t ideal, but she is determined to make it a success. When a certain patron catches her eye, she immediately puts him in the, so not my type category. Billionaire types are everything she is trying to escape, but little does she know that Sam Shaw is doing some escaping himself.
Sam Shaw has come from nowhere to be a mega successful property magnet. He is all about investment and what will keep its value. He forms no attachments with people, personal effects or property. He knows what it is like to lose everything and he is determined to never feel that pain again. Until one day, whilst looking for art to invest his wealth in he meets Grace. He knows he has to have her, even if it is just sex. But as much as he wants to invest his money wisely, maybe Grace might become his best investment of all.
I really love this author’s work. It all started with King of Wall Street for me, and I have very quickly made my way through her entire back catalogue. When I realised that she was going to release another book connected to KOWS, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.
This book certainly has a different pace to its predecessor; it felt more elegant given their surroundings and Grace’s love of fine art. Both characters come with their own issues that slow the onset of romance somewhat. That’s not a bad thing, I would hate reading the same book repackaged with different characters. But for me it meant that I didn’t warm quite as quickly to Sam, but man by half way I was swooning. He is a complicated man, a man I eventually felt sympathy towards big time. But he makes some dick moves and Louise Bay certainly keeps you guessing with him longer than other male characters she has developed. As for Grace, well I already loved this girl. She should be a Paris Hilton type, but she is as far from that as could be. Is she a little self-destructive in her choice of men… abso-bloody-lutly, but this girl is a rebel with a massive heart; I adored her.
So for fans of Louise Bay, this is an absolute MUST. Would I recommend it for newbies? Well I would definitely start with King of Wall Street first. This is a much more of a slow burn romance, which although shows off how Louise can be diverse in her writing, I think it would be much better read after be introduced via Max King.
Another enjoyable read and I look forward to what comes next. This author puts out great romance books and I hope this isn’t the last we have seen of the New York crew. Scarlett and Violet definitely need to find their men.
