He’s a Wall Street wolf. She’s been hired to tame him. From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne comes a wildly sexy novel of business and pleasure.

Twenty-eight and filthy rich, Matt Cannon is the youngest broker on Wall Street. He may be a “boy wonder,” but he’s every inch a man. Ask any woman—any night. But when Matt’s latest fling makes scandalous headlines, his clients get anxious, and his bosses at Wolfe Investments level an ultimatum: keep his assets zipped, get a “real” girlfriend, and clean up his act. Only one woman can help Matt with something this hard.

For PR genius Sabrina Cross, the best fixer in Manhattan, playing Matt’s steady is going to be a challenge, even if it’s just for show. They already have an explosive history, she can’t stand the cocky party boy, and worse—she can’t stop thinking about him. So who’ll dare to break her “no touching” rule first? Because when that happens, Matt and Sabrina’s game of let’s pretend will get so hot it could set both their reputations on fire.

Hard Sell is the second book in the 21 Wall Street series by Lauren Layne, and let me just warn you now! You will become addicted to it! So sit down, buckle up and let the Wolves of Wall Street take you on a journey of a lifetime.

Now I will be completely honest with you, I did not read the Hot Asset (the first book in the series) until AFTER I read Hard Sell the first time! But it didn't matter! It just made me rush out and buy Hot Asset just so I could love all over Hard Sell Again.

And speaking of Hard Sell, let's get into shall we! This book has set a whole new sub-genre all to itself! It's literally the only mortal enemy/bootie call relationship I have ever read about! But it's truly even more than that! It's about Matt and Sabrina, two people who have seen what "love" can do to each other, and decided it wasn't for them! And even though Matt and Sabrina's relationship could have been far different, if Matt hadn't ballsed it up beyond belief, in the beginning, I don't think either of them were mentally prepared to be in a relationship.

I have to say, the author really knocked it out of the park with this series, I'm totally in love, and though I recommend that you read Hot Asset first, Hard Sell can totally be read as a stand-alone, and then you can do what I did! Read this book, go back and get book one, and read it all over again!

I give Hard Sell 5 well-deserved stars!
