Publisher's Summary

A sexy agent hounds Wall Street's hottest new wolf in an exhilarating novel from New York Times best-selling 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, and 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.

This one gets an auto 5 stars because of Zachary W

The narration was so good. I have a crush on Zachary Webber's voice. I listen to everything he does. Lauren Layne is new to me along with Samantha Coook but I wasn't disappointed. Can't wait for Book 2. Oh did I forget to mention I loved the story too!! Excellent....
A story within the romance was told and there were some great characters. Zachary is better with the other characters but Ms. Cook did ok too. Thanks for a good listen.

Wolf of Wall Street

Sexy Wall Street suit, Ian and the SEC investigator, Lara. Sparks fly as Lara tries to prove that Ian is guilty of insider trading. Ian's friends rally around him and help him try to prove his innocence. This is the first of the 21 Wall Street series. I can't wait for the next book! I love how Lauren Layne writes the witty banter between all the characters. The narration from Zachary Webber and Samantha Cook is wonderful!! This is well worth the credit.

Zachary Webber ❤️

I did not like the performance of Samantha’s Cook. The book was good and of course Zachary delivers every time, he can narrate the phone book and I would listen.

Unfortunately it's very dry and boring

There's no exciting parts, there's no action. I expected some kind of action as much as a contemporary can have action. Some kind of tension but really the hero and herione avoid each other constantly and we're often hearing them complain. Narrators were amazing. Story wasn't my tea, I'm sorry I was so bored even when I heard 90% of it. if you love Wall Street stuff and a pending very long investigation then this is for you. I thought I'd really like it, but I'm just so bored.

Great book!

I really liked this story, and the narrators were good as well. It’s not super steamy, but I liked to characters and storyline enough that it was still a good romance book.

Flirty Wall Street romance

Good solid story with interesting characters. The author was a bit lax though at painting a picture of life as successful 29 somethings in New York City other than the briefest sketches of club life, the office, and Ian’s apartment. The story centers around an ambitious rags to riches young broker/player and an equally ambitious, dedicated SEC investigator. The book is the first of a trilogy about 3 friends that work for the same firm so there is plenty of interaction between the characters as their personalities are laid out. Ian’s childhood/teen years are barely discussed and even less so in terms of best friend Sabrina. The foster dad is mildly entertaining but his main purpose is to provide a key line/wake up call by way of analogy to Ian’s puzzle of how to move his relationship with Lara along. The mystery part is very predictable as is the romance and the story. The sex scenes are good but brief. Zachary Webber did a great job with narration was good but not a frequent as Samantha Cooke’s and hers was at times monotone and bored when in female character; her male voices were flat and indistinguishable. This is a stand-alone but the other 2 friends have their own stories. I hope the series ends up on the Romance Package or sale because this was not really worth a credit.

new 2 Samantha, Zachary what a voice!

I have read several of Lauren's books … love this book. love her writing style. I am new 2 Samantha Cook's voice. Love Zachary's voice. Am I the only one who looks 2 see what these narrators read and then make a pick on which book to listen too? I thought well I love Z and Lauren is a great writer … so I was so happy. Must read and I will check out if the next book is on Audible … I really think that some books are just so awesome to listen too … this was one that should be included there. ( ;

Good idea for a story

Orphan makes good and gets the girl, classic. The only thing is I found the male reader somewhat irritating. He sounded as if he would rather be anywhere else but where he was doing anything else. He really sounded bored.

Very Enjoyable Read

Entertaining story. Laura is a strong female lead and Ian is the usual gorgeous, rich manslut but is still a good guy who gives up his playboy ways after meeting Laura. It's not a unique romance story no standout moments but entertaining and no annoying whining and no annoyingly long inner monologues filled with angst or gushing over a man's gorgeousness. Laura comes across like a real woman. Great narration. Zachary Webber is one of my favorites and Samantha Cook was also good. I recommend this book.

I wasnt sure, but im glad i invested

I wasn't totally sure about this book, as i felt the blurb of the book gave it all away, but i was mistaken.
There was a turn that i didnt see coming and it kept me hooked.
It wasnt a busy book, but there was always something going on to keep you invested in this book.
If you read Laurelin Paige books - this one will be right up your alley.

Caution R rating but totally loved it

Funny and totally enjoyable read. Great performance too except it is always not so easy for a woman doing a male part but great performance by Zachary. Loved the voice and character well played.
