Publisher's Summary

Even for a top-gun banker, temptation this hot is quite a gamble in a sexy Wall Street romp from New York Times best-selling author Lauren Layne.

An alpha among the wolves of Wall Street, Kennedy Dawson rose to the top of the pack by striking the right contracts at the right times. But there's one deal that's been giving him a run for his money - a pact to never again let his assistant, Kate, get under his skin. She may be smart, gorgeous, and sharp as a whip, but she's definitely off-limits.

Kate Henley isn't a banker, but she knows a thing or two about risk management - specifically, about managing her attraction to her smolderingly sexy boss. She already fell once, and Kennedy showed no sign of paying a return on her investment. So when Kennedy's brother starts pursuing her, Kate figures she has the best of both worlds. Jack is charming, rich, very attentive, and the spitting image of his older brother.

It's also making Kennedy think twice. But to win Kate's heart, he'll have to broker the deal of a lifetime...and prove he's worth the risk.

Awesome book, why in 3rd person thought?!

I've been stalking this series for the final book for months, waiting to hear Kennedy and kate's story. The only disappointment was it being in 3rd person. Why do authors still do this ? lol. Only reason why I kept the book is because of the awesome performance Zachary Webber gives and I actually liked the story.

Huge Deal

I was waiting for Kennedy and Kate’s story. Sadly, I didn’t care for it. I’m not sure why the author decided that this book should be in 3rd person. I couldn’t get into it at all.
Samantha Cook and Zachary Webber are amazing but not even their beautiful voices could help the fact that this hook was in 3rd person.

Third Person Narration

After the first two books in the series were written in first person, the third one was written in third person which I did not appreciate. Besides that, the story was very sweet and I liked it.

Annoying Couple

Not as good as the other two. Female(Kate) is immature ... Wasn’t as believable and female went from love struck to b$&@“.

Good Start. Terrible finish.

Ok. Was this written by two different people? Because I got whiplash from part 1 to part 2. Part 2 was terrible. The way Kate turned out was not great. I’m also not a fan of super strong whiny angst in romance. Also the end was just anticlimactic. Sigh.

Disappointed DNF

First off, I knew going in that this book, for some inexplicable reason, was in third person unlike the first two. Not my favorite thing but I really wanted Kennedy and Kate’s story. Things were going pretty well in the beginning. I liked getting more of Kennedy and Kate’s dynamic one on one. The friend group’s banter was as good as ever. Part two is where the train ran off the track. Kate got irrationally immature and a bit on the shrill b**** side. I know something heartbreaking happened but her reaction to it was over the top childish. I had to take a break with a little over an hour left because oh my god this character is like nails on a chalkboard towards the end. Hoping for a good redemption for her.

Loved this book

This was a very sweet story. It had just the right amount of romance and great sex. I could listen to it again and I never do that.

could have been so much better

I was excited for this sorry and felt so disappointed. Part 1 was great but Part 2 ruined the story for me. Kate became such a bitch, so immature and irrational. I had to force myself to finish this story and wish I hadn't because it was such a let down.

Love at first sight, slow burn, millionaire

Kate is so cute and organised and Kennedy is very endearing and a very broody kind of way. It was interesting to follow the way they finally got together. And for those of us who love geeks this couple is golden. There is some steam around the end too but their love story is the main event.
Zachary and Samantha's performances were, as always, outstanding.

The best of the series!

This is #3 of the series and I liked it the best, except that its written in the third person. Not quite sure why she changed her style from the others.

It is standalone but i would recommend starting at the beginning as it's about three friends and you see the development of their lives throughout.

This was fun because it was about Kate who is very orderly who falls in love with one of her bosses, unbeknown to him until his brother catches her attention and then all hell breaks loose. Kennedy is a lovely character, Mr Grumpy, but so misunderstood and actually at heart one of the best of the bunch.

It is an easy read without much angst and just two people finding their way to true love.

Warning! Cant put down!

I hardly got any sleep the last two nights I just could not stop listening. I loved all three books. LOL moments, misty eye moments, happy ending, good plots. I was sucked in like I was part of the friends group. What more can a girl want? MORE of these please!

Good

Enjoyed the story Kennedy and Kate were well suited, he was a bit slow off the mark typical man, but he got there in the end. Love the voice of Zachary Webber definitely picked the right narrators for both Kennedy and Kate. Enjoyed the whole series of these books.

Horrible narration!

The story is typical chick-lit, nothing exceptional, just an easy listen for the end of a hard week. But both narrators ar jus horrible, such wooden, monotonic voices! Alexa would read it with more emotion!

Good but my least favourite of the series

I've loved this series. This is my last favourite of the 3 books but I'm so glad I listened to it. I enjoy the writing and narration a lot - but didn't love the storyline very much. I like how the group of characters are mentioned in each book, and how in this last book the listeners know them all pretty well.

I guess I found this book a little boring. But I still got through it and am happy I did.

I wish there was more in this series!

My favourite so far in the series

I loved this story. The whole series is great but this one I found just to be my favourite. I think this book is for anyone who loves the intricacies of having more than one interesting character in a story. Also the characters are well flawed and connected to regular life in some ways even when some of them are ridiculously rich. Great twists. I initially did not expect to like this book but ended up listening to the whole series. The narrators made a few little mistakes but otherwise awesome. Great voices and great pace.

Kennedy and Kate

These two play hard-to-get, for years.
There is attraction, but Kennedy has made a pact, with his co-workers, that Kate is off limits.
She is their MVP in the office.
Both Kennedy’s co-workers have found love and Kennedy is the last.
He hasn’t even got a regular girlfriend!
This book is how the two of them find each other.
