21 Wall Street
By: Lauren Layne
Releasing May 22nd, 2018
A sexy agent hounds Wall Street’s hottest new wolf in an exhilarating novel from New York Timesbestselling author Lauren Layne.
Ian Bradley is the definition of a Wall Street hotshot: seven-figure salary, designer suits, and a corner office. His drive off the floor is just as potent. Every woman who knows him has felt the rush. But now he’s met his match in Lara McKenzie—a woman with the power to bring Ian to his knees.
An ambitious, whip-smart daughter of FBI agents, Lara is a rising star in fighting white-collar crime. Her latest case—the investigation of Ian Bradley for insider trading—could make her career. She knows a scoundrel when she sees one. Ian fits the bill: a cocky, ridiculously handsome bad boy with a slick swagger.
She’ll do anything to prove he’s guilty. He’ll do anything to prove he’s not. But it’s only a matter of time before their fierce battle of wits gets oh so hot and personal. Now, taking down Ian has become more than business for Lara. It’s become a pleasure—and there’s more at risk than she ever dreamed.

Ian is so a guy you would normally hate; cocky, gorgeous, rich, suave but the good thing is that he knows he’s all those things. And he tries to be not your typical, rich, douchebag playboy. And that’s what makes him palatable. He might have all these strikes against him but he’s a pretty awesome human being. Especially with his down to earth friends!
I love Lauren Layne’s writing because you know you’re going to love the characters. You might not be a fan in the beginning, but she will not lead you astray and that you will end up loving the character by the end.
This book had also unexpected turns which made it even better. A little suspense, intrigue with my romance please!
