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....

    3.5 Stars!!Having never read a Louise Bay book before, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this, but after reading the blurb I was pretty excited to read “King” and Harper’s story…mainly because I love a good office romance. Fun and sexy, fast paced and with an interesting plot, 'King of Wall Street' was a pretty engaging read."She was like a drug. Every hit I took of her made me want more".Harper had been desperate to work for Max King ‘The King of Wall Street’ since before she enrolled at business school. She had moved to New York only with the thought to work for the enigmatic King. She now works as a junior researcher for her idol, but surprisingly her job is nothing like she dreamed. Her boss is smart and driven, but unfortunately he’s a big a$$hole. “I pitied any girl dumb enough to fuck Max King. Which, apparently, included me."Max King is known to be ruthless when it comes to his business. He is challenging and demanding and the best in his line of work. At home he’s a single dad who’s trying to keep his fourteen years old daughter a kid for as long as possible. He also tries to keep his business separate from his private life, not looking for a long term relationship. Max had been irritated by Harper’s presence from the moment he met her. As much as sometimes she pisses him off, he can’t deny the fact that she’s a smart, beautiful woman or that he’s more attracted with her than he wants to be. "This girl could end me. I'd suspected it the moment I saw her. Known it the moment I'd seen her work. Talented. Beautiful. Sharp. Sexy. I wanted it all."The dynamic between Max and Harper changes when they find out they are neighbors. Soon Harper realized that Max is a king not only in the boardroom, but also in the bedroom. I enjoyed this one! The storytelling was pretty great, so even if I didn’t totally love this one, I’m looking forward to read more books by this author. Like I mentioned earlier, the plot was quite interesting. Both main characters were engaging and well portrayed and I have to say I was rooted for them from the very beginning. Max was a great hero! He was enigmatic and commanding and yes, like I previously mentioned a little a$$hole in the beginning, but he never was mean or arrogant which I loved. He totally won me over as the story unfolded not only because he was sweet and caring with our heroine, but also because he has such a great, heartwarming relationship with his daughter. I loved their relationship. He was a great, sweet and loving father and his daughter was pretty awesome for a thirteen years old kid. I also liked Harper. She was smart and really great, both with Max and his daughter. The story was pretty steamy which I loved and all the sexy scenes were hot as hell. I loved the two between the sheets and of course all the fantastic sexual tension as the story unfolded. “You’re beautiful. And sexy and—” I paused a second. I had to be careful I didn’t come first. “And you drive me crazy at work.” I thrust again. “Because I want to bend you over my desk and drive my cock into you. Just. Like. That.”Overall, this was a great read! If you are looking for a sexy office romance, told in dual POV and low in angst and drama, then this is the perfect read for you!

    'King of Wall Street' was just the type of sweet, straightforward love story that I was craving. I listened to the Audible version during my daily commute and it was a great way to pass the time. It had humor and plenty of heat. Even without big twists and surprises, this story held my attention.Harper Jayne has idolized Max King for years. She's landed an entry-level research position working under the Wall Street business mogul, right out of grad school. She is determined to prove herself and stand on her own two feet, refusing the assistance of her wealthy father.However, Max King is determined to prove something himself. He's dead set on proving to himself that he can avoid his attraction to the sexy new junior employee. He's never mixed business and pleasure before. He plans to stay far away from the likes of Ms. Harvey Jayne, lest he lose all control. Max King is not a man that ever loses control.As Max tries to push Harper away, she manages to creep into his life. For her part, Harper cannot understand why Max is so nasty to her. She figures it is just her luck to end up having him infiltrate her life outside of work as well.After a few chance encounters outside of the office, these two are going at it like bunnies. They try to keep work and private activities separate, but that can only last for so long. Despite their attempts to keep their outside relationship strictly sexual, their feelings only grow stronger. I'm sure you can imagine how things play out, there's no big surprises here. However, I really enjoyed this predictable office romance. The characters were easy to relate to and I loved the fact that Max had a teenage daughter, Amanda. Her character gave a little different spin to the billionaire meets intern storyline. Overall it was a highly enjoyable, straightforward and fun read. It was a nice way to pass the time. I listened to the Audible version and the narration was well done also.

    3.5 STARSThis is my first story read by this author and I was pleasantly pleased with the ease of the writing. I found the storytelling easy and light and the Harper Jayne’s fall for the King of Wall Street enjoyable. Harper Jayne has a TON of daddy issues and these walls, insecurities and generalizations have her skeptical about her blossoming relationship with her boss, Max King. Thank goodness for her best friend Grace who constantly helps her see things for how they truly are without being jaded by how her financial mogul father treated her and her mother. ”He’s not my father.” But had I expected him to fail? Even looked for it?”The story is told in dual povs of both characters as they give into their attraction to one another. “Once is never enough with you. I need you all the time, forever.”There’s a bit of drama as Harper’s father’s company may be King’s new client and then there’s the sweetheart of the story Max’s daughter, Amanda. Overall, this was an easy, enjoyable, read that is currently available on Kindle Unlimited.

    5 'THE King' Stars!This gif basically describes Max King, ladies. Max, Max, Max.. you are a dirty sexy asshole! I been dying to read this book since I read the blurb and the good reviews about it. This is my first Louise Bay novel but now I can definitely assure you that it will not be the last!King of Wall Street is a stand-alone work that tells the story of Max King (a really appropriate name for the hero of this book since he is the king of the boardroom, a man dedicated to his daughter and who is not ready to accept and act on his feelings towards the heroine) and Harper Jayne (a recently graduated woman who works for Max's business, who has worked very hard to be where she is and has the power to bring the the King to his knees). I wanted to be successful but still a decent human being. Was I naïve to think that was possible on Wall Street?I prided myself on being unemotional at work. I’d always been able to separate the different areas of my life, to shut one world down while I was in another. Harper blurred the lines.I loved this book so much! Louse has created a story with a fantastic easy-to-follow plot, profound and very heartfelt characters and a couple who has magnificent chemistry in the workplace and especially in the bedroom! Holy hell, Max King is SO HOT!I wanted to go farther, deeper, faster. I needed to mark her, own her, climb inside her. It was as if every inappropriate image I’d buried deep in my brain had escaped and come to life.“See what a single touch does to you? See the power I have over your body?” He removed his fingers and disappointment caught my breath. I didn’t have to answer. “You came here to get fucked, and I’m not going to disappoint you.”See what I mean? Fantastically written sex scenes and a dirty talking hero? Check, check, check! And I really love how an author is able to keep this chemistry and evolve that to an emotional relationship. I loved Max and Harper together, how they finally get to their HEA and I adored the relationship between him and his daughter Amanda, so freaking sweet it made my heart melt!“You’re growing up so fast; you have to forgive me for wanting to keep you mine for longer than I should.” Tears welled in my eyes. He sounded so genuine. So completely besotted with his daughter. “Once is never enough with you. I need you all the time, forever.”Therefore, my rating for King of Wall Street is 5 STARS because this story fulfilled everything that I need to love a good love story: great plot, deep and lovable characters and a couple who has off-the-charts chemistry! I cannot wait to read more of Louise's works because this made me fall in love with her writing so I highly recommend you check this one out!CHECK OUT MY BLOG HERE:

    Max King is ruthless when it comes to his business, and is known to be a tough man to work for. At home he's completely different, a single dad trying to give his teenage daughter a happy life. He doesn't want his two worlds to ever cross paths, but then Harper Jayne enters his life she starts to take over his thoughts both in work and at home. And when she moves in to his apartment building he loses his ability to stay away.After reading this book I made a plan to move to New York, find a boss like Max King, and let him has his wicked way with me. I mean, if a man like Max King exists in this fictional world there has to at least be one of them out in real life, right? Just agree with my delusions.Anyway, I really liked this story and the characters, especially Max if you couldn't already tell that. It wasn't boring at any time, and there was always something happening more than just attraction and sex. I liked how it threw a lot of story in the book and didn't just keep it a sexy book with no interesting parts. Bottom line, read this book and you will love Max just as much as I do!

    4 Seeing What's In Front Of You Stars* * * *Spoiler FreeSometimes we can have a preconceived notion of how things should be in our lives...We think if we touch all the bases and do all of the tests... then the outcomes should happen just the way we imagined it. Well, as we mature and experience life...we learn that isn't always the case. More often then not, the fantasy job, relationship or goal does not match up with all the ideas we had...and this, I think, is the undercurrent of King on Wall Street by Louise Bay.This book has every element to give the reader the fun, sexy ride it promises. It has the forbidden of a workplace romance...It has the "hate" passion to drive these two characters to outstanding encounters. It has the added benefit of a young teenage daughter and loving relationship with her dad, so all of these parts factor perfectly to enjoy everything, no worries. And I did...Max King was everything a King of Wall Street should be...but actually better. He had times when he was just as confused as a regular guy when it came to his love interest. She threw him for a loop. He had no history of a man/woman relationship that worked outside of the one with his Daughter's Mom. That was a strong one and had been based in friendship from the start. It was their friendship and a goodbye night together that brought them their wonderful daughter. Instead of rushing to marry, when it never would have been smart, they stepped back and focused on just being the best parents for their child to come. Max remained part of his daughter's life from her first breath and now that the mom and her husband have a career opportunity in Switzerland, his daughter is now going to be staying with him full time. He does have his sisters, grandparents and others to assist... but he has arranged his life from the start to be the best dad he could. He keeps work, work...and personal far away from work. It was a system which worked brilliantly...until She arrived. She, the Junior Researcher... the one which draws his eyes and mind anytime she is in the vicinity. He has Thoughts...Naughty, Dirty Thoughts and that will not do. She is Harper Jayne; her family life was nothing like Max's daughter's. She was a product of love from her mother... but the father never fully made the commitment to her mother or her. He would sometimes come by but more than likely, Harper was told he couldn't make it for plays, recitals or graduations...or birthdays... Oh, he would send presents, pay for college and set up a trust fund...but he was mostly absent in Harper's physical life. But in Harper's mind...the actions of her father colored everything. She went to business school, got her masters and purposely focused on working for Max King and Associates. By becoming the Junior Researcher she was on her way to be a force to be reckoned with...She had it all figured at King's, become a full researcher and throw it in her dad's face. For her father was the major player in the world she worked and after graduation, never receiving an offer for a position in his company, it left another bitter taste in her mouth. So here we have Harper working for the company and Mentor of her dreams... should be fantastic, right....Not so much... seems Max King is an [email protected], through and through...Harper works on a project, proud as punch that she did everything she could for it to be perfect...Sits and watches Max go over it with a red pen and ask questions she can't answer quickly. He points out this is not the type of work he expects...Harper is pissed and laments her experience to her best friend...Turns out she did have a typo and she could have done more research, so her friend points her to the correct conclusion...did she learn something ...begrudgingly, yes...point made.Harper is still angry... and feels like Max should have been kinder in his corrections... but steels herself to do better. She is in her NYC studio which is too expensive to have such paper thin walls and ceilings. She is trying to sleep and all she can hear is the stomping from above and the Bach playing at full blast at 11 PM. She checks her lease and knows they are not allowed to disturb any tenant after 10PM.Marching up to the floor above with lease in hand, clad in a silk robe from her bath...Harper bangs on the door....It takes a few bangs but finally it swings open, revealing Max in only pajama bottoms.This plays out as if we are in both of their heads... he is dying because he cannot get her out of his head, wanting to constantly have her in compromising positions involving desks, walls and conference rooms...but knowing he is her boss...Harper is confused and furious...first for the noise and then because her friggin boss lives in her building and she hates him... Because he is an [email protected] But as much as that is the case...She cannot keep her hands off of him...This is going to be a problem...This story had many layers. It had steaming hot sex. It had a man who was all a woman could want but with some commitment issues due to the priority of his daughter. He felt he wouldn't be able to give his daughter everything she would need if he started to have a personal life. His business took up so much time and was too important. Max makes huge strides in this because his interest in Harper is like nothing he's experienced before. He fumbles constantly in how to talk to her and what to say. He tries to do the right things but keeps messing up.Harper was much more complicated. Because of her history with her father, she judges all men and finds them wanting. She assumes many things about Max instead of asking him out right. She projects her relationship with her dad unto Max when she finds out he never married the mother of his daughter. Her reactions are understandable to a degree but I would have liked her to have had not so many assumptions.Overall, it worked and was full of moments to enjoy.Louis Bay takes these two successful people and shows how education, success and wealth does not mean they will be able to do relationships perfectly... in other words... they are just like anyone else. Look for more smart, entertaining couples to come... A Prince and Princess of New York City should be coming soon...King of Wall Street Duke of Manhattan Park Avenue Prince The British Knight gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.For more Reviews, Free E-books and Giveaways

    I'm more in love with my own state of New York thanks to this book and Louise Bay... **sighs**Honestly, my heart took every single word out of this book and shoved inside, deeply so I don't forget it. Max and Harper in King of Wall Street are ultimately my favorite fictional couple located in New York. Louise Bay has just simply done it again!! Well, well...This book... Wooah! Max King is the definition of pure, New Yorker hotness and romantic. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! As a true New Yorker, I love this book way too much. He is a business man, she (Harper) is a junior business woman trying to make her way to the top. He is a single father of a fourteen year old, and he cannot stop fantasizing about his intern, Harper. Honestly, the combination of all these mentioned factors cannot get better. I have always loved Louise Bay's books, but this book has reached the limit of perfection in my dictionary.The basic story starts with the whole, love-hate relationship. Harper hates Max for the lack of attention and kindness he implies to her at work. Respecting Max's decision of his actions, I agree why he would act towards those actions. The man is hooked! He can't stop thinking about Harper and how amazing, witty, absolutely beautiful, but most of all, how outstandingly brilliant she is. All those characteristics combined have the man hard all the time. I don't blame him... The way Louise Bay describes Harper, as a woman with a stunning bodice and a mindset full of independence and stubbornness, I would go gay for this business woman! Their chemistry... Dear lord... I had to hold on to the edge of my desk top from my work office when I was reading this. SEX with Max and Harper is dangerous for me. I almost knocked down my cup of vanilla mocha coffee on top of my lap from the amount of excitement my body radiated with the amount of loving and LUSTFULL chemistry these two have!Max as a father is the most cutest and adorable thing I have read in a while. Even the Score and Fearless In Love are different to Max's scenario because Amanda (his daughter) is older than what the scenario of a child in a different story would be. Amanda is a growing teenager, wanting to do teenage things here and there, but Max is a father that does not want his daughter to keep growing up because she is slowly becoming a stubborn person just like him (in a good way) and he wants to get a hold of his baby for a while... Typical father figure hahaha!One thing that did catch my attention, profusely was the mental comment Harper made after the intimidating elevator ride with the gorgeous blonde, about how when she (Harper) read about Max on the tabloids, she never read anything about a special someone in his life, which made her to think he was gay....**cough cough** CHRISTIAN GREY! HAHAHAHA! (Sorry just had to point it out there...)Max and Harper on the other hand of business, they try to recoup the JD Stanley Bank company in which the owner/ CEO is Harper's father who did not have anything to do with her life which is also something she resents... Max tries to help her, not only with the proposal of having JD as part of his business, but also help Harper with her emotional problems. They both conquer their emotional problems and love one another deeply and purely.Louise Bay has made it to my favorites list once again, and I can't wait to read more of her books because my mind and my heart enjoy them more than expected! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!Goodreads Rating: FIVE VEGAS AND SERENDIPITY RESTAURANT STARS

    He is Dad first, King second...I really liked King of Wall Street. I found myself sucked into the storyline from the first pages and the more I got to know Max, the more I liked him. First of all, he puts his daughter above everything. That's kind of refreshing as most books I read "say" that the hero or heroine put their children first, but Max "shows" that he does. He knows what's going on in Amanda's life and plays an active role in bringing her up. He has a good relationship with Amanda's mother, Pandora and Pandora's husband, Jason, as well. Like I said, refreshingly different. Max's work is a priority but only to support Amanda to the best of his ability.Now, Max, he's no monk but he doesn't allow himself to have relationships because his life is full enough as it is. When Pandora and Jason head overseas for work, it's time for Max to become a full-time parent. This will definitely curtail his "play-time" and he has a wee bit of frustration that he needs to work out. See, there's this new woman in his office and he can't stop thinking about bending her over his desk.Harper, hate to say it, but she's got some issues and those issues started at the hands of her neglectful dad. Any relationship she starts is guaranteed to be an uphill battle. So, with her "issues" added to the fact that she has the HOTS for her boss, I'm going to need a lot of convincing that this is a good idea.I enjoyed King of Wall Street and finished with a big smile on my face. This was my first read by Louise Bay and will definitely not be my last. Her writing has a touch of humour, a touch of sweetness, mixed with a whole lot of spice. The characters were interesting, the storyline kept my attention and the connection between the couple was very easy to see.If you're looking for a HOT and STEAMY office romance with a single father devoted to his family, then I definitely recommend King of Wall Street.

    The King of Wall St. Max King has a problem, he is lusting after one of his employee's the beautiful Harper Jayne the only thing is by trying to keep his distance from her it's only making his body temperature hotter and now he finds out that they live in the same building and she has struck up a friendship with his 14 year old daughter, now there is no escape from their mutual obvious attraction to each other. I really liked this book, the story line was engrossing, the sex was hot, the characters lovable and the family dynamics between Max, his daughter and his sisters was lovely. Narrated by Andi Arndt who has the most sexiest male voice and the sexy as sin voice of Sebastian York how can you ever go wrong with two of the best narrators on the planet Oh! My!.

    King of Wall StreetLouise Bay⭐️⭐️⭐️I was intrigued what was the fuss between Harper and Max when I read Sam and Grace's story first. I kinda mixed the volumes up, so I read their story. A guy's typical reaction when they see a woman they like, you know they turn cranky when they don't even notice them. Max cannot control himself around Harper, and Harper has her eyes on the price, to work for Max King. The problem is they want each other so bad they cannot stand each other. You get me? A very typical story run down, maybe what I liked about the story is it didn't have too many complications on it. Unlike Sam's and Grace story which is far more complicated given Sam's history. What I'm really getting at is if you wanted to read a walk-in-the-park read, no hard heartbreak, no cheating whatsoever you should read this. Max is downright sweet, plus he is a DILF. You cannot ask for more. LOLCatch Louise Bay updates on her website Click Here to go to her websiteTwitterInstagram

    **3.5 Stars ** Max King is the King of Wall Street. In Manhattan he's a force to be reckoned with. He's stable, no nonsense, go-getter that works hard for his company and to be the best. But in Connecticut he's a single dad trying to navigate life with his 14 year old daughter, Amanda.Max lives two worlds, one as a top notch professional who gets the job done and the other as a patient loving father. I am a sucker for single dad love stories! And what I loved most about Max was I saw the tough side and the loving, sappy side of him.Harper Jayne has always wanted to make it to the top and working at King and Associates has been her dream for a long time, but what she was not expecting was for her boss to be such an asshole. Max and Harper are drawn together regardless of their less than cordial feelings toward each other. This was my first Louise Bay book and it was a refreshing, light and easy read. That perfect in between read for when you need something fun and not a lot of angst.

    4* banging the king STARS!We’d first touched, kissed, fucked when I’d only known him as a career driven, ruthless, arrogant egomaniac. And somehow, his life outside work made him all the more attractive. And I knew I had to fight it.My first read and I only have minor issues. This book was really hype in my facebook because ughh, that cover! Just love at the sexiness. I could say this all about power and money. I didn't read the blurb so surprised to know that the hero in this book is a father. I mean, he has a daughter and I rarely enjoyed single parent character but this one kinda blew me away. In good way.Hard-ass boss? Yeah, that's who Harper Jayne working for. Working with Max King was one of her dreams but in reality it was sucks. Max isn't an easy boss to pleased. Basically, he's an ass. Max really proud of his job and achievement. Harper is one hell of distraction of temptation for him. He did everything he could to avoid Harper in any condition even when he founds out that her junior researcher is in the same building. As uncomfortable it seems, they really HOT for each other.Office romance isn't a new thing for me. But this one includes as neighbor. Harper is a determined and hard-working woman. Yeah, I liked this girl. But she has bad judgement and kinda annoyed me. She did amazing job but horrible at relationship. Same applied with Max. Both of them has a lot DESPERATE sex almost everyday. I think it's hard to keep it as casual sex especially Harper banging her boss-slash-neighbor.“You’re beautiful. And sexy and—” I paused a second. I had to be careful I didn’t come first. “And you drive me crazy at work.” I thrust again. “Because I want to bend you over my desk and drive my cock into you. Just. Like. That.”Max has separate lives between work and family. Family is his escape. Max did good job raising his daughter, Amanda. I enjoyed their times together. As a children, Amanda really independent and adorable. But, Max sometimes made me roll eyes. He's unprofessional towards Harper because he's boning around her since the first time. That's why he harsh with her but after he 'released' all his frustration, he became another person. Softer and patient. Honesty is the best quality and Max did everything he could to balance some problems with Harper.Overall, I really enjoyed the story. Well-written and predictable plot. Nothing surprised me because that was obvious. They're in lust with each other and comfort turns into love. As the sex, no complaints. It has right amount of sexiness. I'm overly thinking about their age (Yeah, some reviewer managed to mention this) because it was confusing. (view spoiler)[When I did the math, Max is in mid-30s because he has a 14 y.o. daughter and based on his story fooling around when in college. Harper... Err I'm not sure. I don't have experience in her job. So probably late 20s? (hide spoiler)]Towards the end, kinda disappointed to see how Harper and Max turns into cliche couple. Overly sentimental with everything. Also the daddy issue with Harper and her father. Based on her story, I don't like him. (view spoiler)[It appears true when her father told the truth. He fooled around a lot of woman and bore illegitimate child? (hide spoiler)]. This was an easy and enjoyable read. There is chemistry from the start and HEA in the end. Liked it but not enough to loved it.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    ARC kindly provided by Social Butterfly PR for my honest reviewAll hail the king! I have a spot for single parents, in this case single dad, so I have to say that just that fact was a huge plus from me!This is not my first book by Louise Bay, and I can easily say that she is an auto buy. One of the authors that never ever disappoints. I loved the plot, the characters and her writing technique, which is flawless. I finished it in a few hours. If you like books with a decent amount of sexiness and a lot of romance, this one is for you! I highly recommend it!

    Louise Bay is an author who I've been meaning to read for a while, and I have to say my first experience with her was a pretty good one. I do love it when first impressions aren't all they seem and that is very much the case with Max King. Yes, he has that strong presence about him that goes hand-in-hand with being a wealthy, successful businessman, but he also has softer side, one where his family takes priority and he's just a dad wrangling life raising a teenage daughter which added a lovely angle to the overall story. "Don’t get me wrong, I love my dad. He’s just not good with women."Harper complimented him perfectly: she may be a little quick to judge and put her brain in gear after she speaks, but she's headstrong, determined and very independent. But when it comes to each other, she and Max are fighting a losing battle, there's only one place this boss/employee relationship is heading and it's in a very steamy direction. "Forbes was right when they said you were talented."It didn't hold any huge surprises to the storyline and I do think there was room for a little more development in certain areas, but that didn't detract from an easygoing, sexy, enjoyable read with fabulous characters and I'll certainly be reading more from Louise in the future.

    ***ARC Provided by the Author and Social Butterfly PR***This is my 2nd book by this author, I read and LOVED Indigo Nights, so I was excited to delve into the world of Max King and see where I ended up.Well, now I know. Max King is a lot of fun. He is a compelling man, authoritative in the boardroom, and in the bedroom, but with a heart of gold and misty eyes when it comes to his teenage daughter.Harper is a fun heroine, a little naïve at first and hurt by Max’s initial treatment of her, as she had fantasies about entering the work world, being at her dream job, and starting off on a high note, wowing her boss, and being the best junior researcher in the history of ever. The kind of fantasies that all of us have, the ones that rarely work out that way.I loved everything about this book. Especially the cover. Have you seen it? Did you pause and then go back for a second look? I know I did. I am not sure what it is about that cover, but oh my I loved it.The pacing is perfect. The book flows well and there are no places where it drags or seems to jump too quickly. I was fully engaged throughout the entire book, which is a requirement if I am going to give a book 5 stars.The characters were wonderful. Nuanced, compelling, and true to themselves in ways that I both expected and in ways that impressed me, as there were some areas where the author could have used the plot that was already there to create tension, and instead she stayed true to the characters and away from some of the more obvious clichés that can appear in books.The plot, as I have said, I believed it. I could follow along, and I thought that it was possible real people, in real life, could live the events that unfolded in the story.The angst was missing in this, for the most part. Yes, there was some, but it didn’t come from the obvious places. I appreciated that, as it showed that Max was the stand up guy you think he is, that he treats the people in his life with respect, and that he gets it in return. When I started the book, I was a little worried that the characters who were so different in their public and private lives wouldn’t mesh, well, I had nothing to worry about there. Max is a full, nuanced person. With more than one side, more than one aspect to his life…just like all of us.I highly recommend this book.My grabby hands are out for the next thing Louise Bay writes, as you can guarantee I will be reading it.***This and other reviews featured on our blog “Booked All Night” and here:***

Which is making he be harder and harsher towards her. Harper has issue of her own...yes she does find Max attractive too...but she has Daddy issue.

    The first book that I read fromLouise Bay wasDuke of Manhattan and now I'm catching up with other characters. I've enjoyed reading this book. It was funny and romantic. Sometimes you just need a sweet, easy read- and this delivered exactly what I was looking for and I loved it.

    I have a thing for Louise Bay. I have posted reviews of several of her books and have enjoyed every one of them. This one looked extremely promising and I was not disappointed.This is definitely one that goes under the category of one you can't put down and I found myself reading into the wee hours of the night. Super hot and very sexy, I really enjoyed the beautiful character of Max. I love that he was not arrogant or mean and nasty but tender and sweet, supportive and caring.In typical Louise Bay fashion this book is loaded with plenty of hot steamy situations that tie you up and keep those pages turning. Not a lot of angst, which is a blessing, but just an all-around Hot story with solid characters showcased in real life situations that you can really connect with.Yummy!!! I Love MAX!

    **** 4.5 "WANTED" Stars **** Max is a single father of a 14 year old girl and the KING of Wall Street. His business is a success and the leading firm. Max's success comes from hard work and dedication that Max has poured his heart into. His work life and personal life are two separate worlds and he likes, he needs it this way. His no non sense business side does not reflect on his loving, father side. Until Harper enter's his work world and infiltrates her life into his personal life as well."A single touch from her and all my worst fears were confirmed - I wanted this woman."Harper has nothing but work on her brain and becoming successful. All through college she has learned everything she could about King and his business. Working for him is all she ever wanted and she made sure to surround herself with anything that had to do with King. She became obsessed with him and his company. Working for him is a dream come true and getting to see his drop dead gorgeous face everyday is icing on the top. That is until they come face to face and he makes sure to portray that he wants nothing to do with her. Making her dislike him will help Max get over the fact that he wants this woman deeply. He has never been effected in such a way. After a confrontation to chew out her neighbor's rudeness, Harper learns Max is her neighbor and their relationship explodes. "I wanted to go farther, deeper, faster. I needed to mark her, own her, climb inside her."Harper and Max's relationship can't help but sizzle when you have work place flirting and outside sexiness until her father she has nothing to do with becomes the brick wall that stands between them and loving each other.I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVED Max! He started off as a big asshole but totally redeemed himself rather quick and showed how amazing he really was. Now Harper, she is another story, I really actually disliked her for a majority of the book. She was a bitch, plain and simple and quite honestly never deserved Max......only because Max should be mine!!!

    I love me a good office romance and I am a sucker for single dads, and this story blended the two together perfectly!“She was like a drug. Every hit I took of her made me want more. I was chasing the high—her high.”Max King, the King of Wall Street, has it all—a million dollar company, an amazing daughter, loving sisters. And it isn’t until Harper Jayne enters his life that he realizes that something was missing…Harper has made it her mission in life to work at King & Associates. And now that she is finally there, she can’t believe that her boss is such an asshole. Or is he? Years of resenting her own father makes it hard for Harper to trust any man.“Her presence, like some kind of fog, clouded my brain and judgement.”The chemistry between these two was electric! You could feel it coming through the pages. I was ready to visit ‘Vegas’ every time!“I needed to mark her, own her, climb inside her.”But this story had so much more than just heat. It was full of heart; love and laughter, family and friendship. I adored Amanda and her relationship with Max. I even loved how close Max was to Pandora and Jason. Grace was a fabulous best friend and always had the best advice. I can’t wait for her story to come next! Louise Bay has definitely hit it out of the park with this one! ~ Tiffany, 4.5 stars

    4 StarsAs I'm sure you're aware by now, I can't resist a hot a$$hole. But I really can't resist a hot corporatea$$hole. Something about a powerful man with a great dominant personality that I can't pass up. And Max King is no exception. When I started this book I immediately knew two things. I loved the writing and I was in for a good time. Ladies, prepare yourselves for hotness overload. Without further ado, I give you the King of Wall Street...of Orgasms...of Wet Panties...of Dirty Talk...of My Fantasies. Mr. Max King.Max is the CEO of King & Associates. His firm provides investment banks with the critical research they need to help them make wise and lucrative investment decisions. And he is the best at what he does. Which is why he's dubbed the King of Wall Street. But he's not only king in the finance world. He's king of the bedroom. His top priority is his 14 year old daughter and his job is a very close second, leaving no room for a third. He's not looking for commitment. But a mind blowing night of passionate sex is always welcomed. Of course not with an employee. That would be inappropriate. And he definitely can't have that, right? Harper Jayne is the new junior researcher at King and Associates. Max is her career idol. She's worked her butt off to get the chance to work with the best in the business. But once she gets to know him, the fantasy doesn't match the reality. She soon discovers her idol is a real piece of work. "The fact was, despite being crazy smart, respected by everyone on Wall Street, and looking as if he should have been on a poster on teenage me’s bedroom wall, he was . . . Cold. Blunt. Uncompromising. A total asshole."Despite his cold treatment Harper can't deny he's hot as hell. And Max is suppressing some dick twitches of his own. Before long these two are wound so tight that something's gotta give. And give it does. With one crazy encounter, the dam breaks and the flood gates are open wide. Harper still thinks he's a total a$$hole but she still can't seem to stop letting him in her pants. At first it's just hot sex amongst two consenting adults with no desire for commitment. But what is supposed to be casual sex turns into something neither party anticipated, nor can they seem to control. Throw in a hilarious best friend, a meddling kid, two meddling sisters, a splash of work drama and you've got yourself a smutastic, laugh out loud, and sometimes emotional and endearing read.The h/h were so good together. Off the charts chemistry. And there were so many laughable moments, which I didn't expect but enjoyed nonetheless. The supporting cast was great. It was too cute watching Max interact with his daughter and sisters. And Harper's bestie is to die for. Why not five stars?Well there was one thing that I had to deduct for. Harper had a knack for jumping to conclusions. Which I hate. It drives me bats#!t There were a couple instants where Harper did that. Thank heavens her best friend was very level headed and talked some sense into her and helped her remove her foot from her mouth. Other than that, I had an awesome good time.

    Louise definitely has the Midas touch because she totally SLAYED this contemporary romance story! Not only has she SLAYED this story for contemporary romance lovers, it's a five star read for me. Extremely unorthodox because I am NOT a fan of contemporary romance at all. Very few authors in this genre can sway me, a fan of all things dark, dysfunctional, and depraved, but dang if Louise didn't knock me on my hind parts for the second time!So what made me want to read KOWS? Why the cover of course! Oh my goodness, the cover is magnificent! It screamed"read me or else"! Another incentive is Max. A wildly successful, gorgeous, multimillionaire who happens to be a single dad. Oh my gosh! How sexy is that scenario? I'm with his daughter and two sisters, let's find Max a girlfriend! Enters Harper. A 25- year old bombshell who infuriate, confuse, and makes Max act like a horny teen all in the span of ten seconds! There's drama, drama, and more drama! These two can't get it together for all the tea in China! Their escapades are hilarious!I recommend this book 100%! It's very well written, the characters are well developed, the scenes and character emotions flow very well! The sex scenes are very hot and the drama-meter goes from 0 to 100 in .3 seconds throughout the story! As a reader, you will not be disappointed. A definite must read! Five stars!

    I was actually on a roll with reading semi-decent books. But for every high, there must be a low right?Context: typical asshole boss who treats the h like sh*t because he's attracted to her. Type of book: Dad romance. Not my preference. 14 year old daughter. Got his pre-college "friend" pregnant by accident. No drama there.Age demographic: H around the 32-33 mark. The h 25-26? Not specified. Worst scene: The h hears some hot sex in the penthouse above her apartment: headboard rattling, loud cries, noises and slurs. I squeezed my thighs together just as the man yelled out to God and she gave a final, sharp scream that echoed through my box-filled apartment.”Jhee. Who this could be? Oh, just Max. Her boss. Because she just had to hear that. I found it a new level of cringe. Why couldn't she have an amazing sex life, and he hear her?Best part of the book: It made me feel better that she wasn't all goo-goo eyes over him, called him an asshole and he was a little stumped by her. He fell faster than she did. His daughter likes her. They jump through some hoops. Get the HEA with some more kids. Wasn't feeling this book.

    From the moment King of Wall Street was posted on the blog, I knew I had to read it! I fell in love with the blurb and had never read a book by Louise Bay before. I love finding new to me authors, so I dove in.Max rules Wall Street like it's his kingdom. He is smart, sexy, and a loving father. Can we all say SWOON?!!! He had me wanting to abandon my career and go work on Wall Street!!But then there is Harper. God I loved this chick. She is funny, smart, gorgeous, and works as a junior associated at King's firm. The connection between Max and Harper was intense!! They couldn't, shouldn't, wouldn't be together, but every time they were within a few feet of each other, BAM!!! Fireworks exploded. They were drawn together.There were hot parts, angsty parts, emotional parts and so many laugh-out-loud moments! What a truly great read. I will absolutely be reading more of Louise's books.

    DNFFirst heroine overhears hero having sex with other woman, she didn't know it was him unaware they were neighbors at this point. I could get past that, but then she sleeps with him, he ignores her for days all the while she's screaming A-hole, she thinks she hears him with another woman and still sleeps with him again. At that point she had plans to go on date with another man, I'm so annoyed with heroine I'm not reading far enough to see if she goes. The daughter of hero wants him to go on a date and he will probably go. Not for me I guess.
