Hot Asset 
21 Wall Street 
By: Lauren Layne 

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.

And again, Lauren Layne delivers a book that will make you laugh, swoon, and fall in love with its characters!
What did I love about this story? Well:
- Lara was simply great. She knows what she wants, she stands for herself, and is simply a badass when needed. I admired her especially because her job is for sure not easy for a woman, but her personality and worth made people respect her. I loved also her personality, and especially her strong sense of right, especially when put in a tough spot, having to choose between her dream job and what it's right.
- First of all, I was attracted by the storyline... A book where the heroine has the upper hand? Sign me up!
- Ian was just wow, my ideal of a Wall Street businessman. A little cocky, a little a womaniser, but just swoon worthy when he finds the right woman for him. Being put in a situation like the one he found himself in mustn't have been easy, but he fought for his innocence, and his efforts luckily paid off.
- the fireworks between Lara and Ian were just wow, and the dialogues kept me on my toes for the entire length of the book! - I really liked the suspence element in the story, and I loved the final scene when they framed the real guilty guy... You go Lara! - as always, Lauren Layne portrayed also some amazing secondary characters, and I can't wait to read their story!
So yeah, I might be addicted to Lauren's stories, but I definitely recommend this one too <3
