King of Wall Street by Louise Bay

This book was super hilarious, I honestly couldn’t stop laughing.



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.

In the beginning Harper and Max clearly have their issues with one another. But they also seem to be very attracted to one another, that much is clear. So who calls them out on their denial, well her hilarious best friend, Grace, and his secretary, Donna. He was kind of an a**hole to her when he is first introduced. But because the P.o.V bounces from Harper to Max, we get to see a different side of him.

“Oh my gosh, who is Amanda,” is the question that went through my mind every time she was mentioned for the first few chapters. But the more I read about her in this book, the funnier she became, and she’s only fourteen! Well at least her parents are civil, unlike some people I know. I’m pretty sure her dad and mine agree on their daughters being their world.

Harper and Max’s reactions to one another are absolutely hilarious because, as much as they insist they don’t like one another, their chemistry is very, very obvious and off the charts. And Harper becomes even wittier than normal when she’s dealing with Max’s BS. It’s hilarious.

My gosh, now I’m starting to wonder if I sounded like Amanda when I was fourteen. Amanda just had me cracking up the entire time.

Well I’m glad that, even though he was an a**hole around Harper, he also defends her. OMG, I guess that old saying is true, that the line between love and hate is very thin.

So yeah, Harper has some serious daddy-issues. Unfortunately, that also clouds her judgement when it comes to Max and an account she’s been working on. Sure both Harper and Max make excellent points, but they’re both also wrong. At least in this matter. My question is, what’s the time span of this book??? I honestly don’t know, there’s mention of a few weeks as well as three months, so I honestly don’t really know.

Thank goodness for Grace, we all need someone, particularly a best friend, to tell us what we don’t want to hear but need to hear nonetheless. And someone starts to deal with her issues. Thank god for that.

Overall, I thought it was a hilarious story. The characters are very witty and a lot hilarious. I honestly wanted more, even after that epilogue.
