Release Blitz & Blog Tour! King of Wall Street by Louise Bay


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.

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 thnknn 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.
