Book Review - Hot Asset by Lauren Layne

ABOUT THE BOOK


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.

REVIEW

This is exactly the kind of book I've come to love and expect from Lauren Layne.  Witty and strong female lead and a sexy cocky hero.  This is a story of opposites attract.  The smolder is instant as you get to know the characters and get drawn into their individual stories the fire only gets hotter between these two.  I enjoyed every second of this read and would recommend to anyone looking to read a smart and sexy romance.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
