Hot Asset (21 Wall Street #1) by Lauren Layne


4 Stars

Lara McKenzie takes her job as an Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigator very seriously. Her latest case is for a typical slimy, Wall Street hotshot accused of insider trading. With a first impression cementing her assessment of his character, she has no doubt that Ian is too slick for his own good…

Ian Bradley has worked hard to get where he is. When he is accused of cheating by way of insider trading, he is determined to prove his innocence. It doesn’t help that he is infatuated with the SEC investigator working his case. Sure, she’s looking to pin some hefty charges on him, but Ian is used to getting what he wants, and the no nonsense Lara is something he can’t seem to stop himself from wanting…


I really enjoyed this book! Lara and Ian’s combative relationship made for a sexy and fun break to the weighty investigation that could end up costing Ian everything…

Lara’s job at the SEC is a stepping stone to her dream of working for the FBI. Being a part of a high profile case like Ian’s would solidify her chances of being noticed by the agency she longs to work for. With so much on the line, being attracted to the one man who she needs to keep a professional relationship with is a serious problem.

Ian prides himself on being an honest and giving man. Being investigated for insider trading is bad enough, but having his character tarnished in the process is especially hard to deal with. And even though he doesn’t take his situation lightly, his desire for Lara is something that could quickly getting out of hand.

With Lara and Ian in an impossible situation, when things start to get heated between them, what will happen if the truth of their relationship is exposed…

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
