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.

Five stars all the way, the story was awesome. The narrator's are a great combination. Loved everything about this story, the beginning, the middle, the end and then the epilogue. One click.
"He is the king!"
Max King is a hot, single dad. Harper Jayne is an independent woman determined to make it without daddy's money. In college, she had her sight on working for Max King, and succeeded. They have a hate-hate relationship until there was a "Vegas" moment. There wasn't too much drama more like Harper felt like a victim due to family background. I did enjoy the humor and relationship with Max, his daughter (Amanda), and his sisters Scarlet and Violet. The sex scenes were hot especially with S York narrating. Both, SY and AA are great narrators. This is a standalone. Yes, worth the credit.
The narration was amazing. Two of my very favorites. The story is hilarious from start to finish. Highly recommend this book
"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.
"LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THIS BOOK!"
This book was the perfect mix of off the charts sexiness, humor, and romance that makes you literally say 'awwwww'. Max was my favorite hands down; his relationship with his sisters and daughter was hilarious and heart melting all at once. The dynamic between him and Harper was not your typical one, and it was a joy to see how things unfolded for them. Well written, strong characters---bravo Louise Bay!---i will be a repeat offender with any book by Louise Bay from here on out. Highly recommended!
Hot Forbidden Romance
I couldn't stop listening to this book!! I loved the story line and how there are seemingly 3 sides to a story- theirs yours and the truth
I just love these narrators. Made it ok to listen to the entire book. But just sort of average story. A 3.5 would have been a more appropriate rating.
"This is where Fun comes to Die."
The way Max is a totally different person away from the office.
The way they make you feel like you are right there living the story with the,.
It's Great to be King!
It's Sebastian York! Need I say more? This man could record my Dust Buster instruction manual and I'd buy it. He has the perfect voice for a bad boy, I don't give a crap, alpha male. Just to clarify, my Headline is a line spoken early in the book by Harper to describe Max's sterile, all business, office. When I heard that line I KNEW I was going to love this book. Fun book. Highly recommended!
"Another knockout by LB"
This was an intense listen by Louise Bay. Who doesn't love an office romance. This was a great listen, that was well worth the credit. A good storyline with your happy ending.
"Human relations in its purest form !!"
The personalities of Max and Harper are so real that I found myself thinking how much I would behave the same way as Harper and Max, at times, as well! I really enjoyed this story! It was raw, pure, touching, maddening and sexy as hell! It'll give it a second and third listen! Andi and Sebastian are great story tellers! I thoroughly enjoy their dynamics!
"Great read, or listen!!!"
The narrators made this book come to life. It drew me in from the very start! Great plot but I wish there was a sequel!!!
"lovely story, would listen again"
Very nicely balanced story with a little drama and enough hot stuff to keep it interesting but not so much that it becomes dull, well balanced so many books of this genre aren't hence 5 ☆
Harper is a great lead lady and it's nice that King was just a steady guy with a teenage daughter, I loved the interplay between dad and daughter.
"A true sexy office romance to get lost in."
I just loved this standalone so much. The story is beautifully written in dual POV. You know the story, two people not in the market for love, fighting the pull that they feel every time they see each other. Harper is hard headed, strong, independent and beautiful. Max is, well, what is Max? He's strong, sexy, successfully, charismatic, a fantastic father, a true family man, loyal, did I say sexy, handsome and a complete and utter God? Oh and did I say sexy as hell? I was hooked from the get-go. Light, easy, fun and flirty. A true sexy office romance to get lost in. The narrator's are perfect, got the characters nailed. Got to say, can't go wrong with Sebastian York, ever! Thank you Ms Bay.
