Hard Sell (21 Wall Street #2) by Lauren Layne

4.5 Stars

Matt Cannon has an image problem, and his future at Wolfe Investments hinges on him cleaning it up… quickly. With the genius idea of a temporary girlfriend, he only needs to find the right woman for the job… 

Sabrina Cross is a fixer. Building her life and reputation in NYC all on her own, she does what it takes to get the job done. But, when he nemesis asks for her help in what should be a simple fake relationship job, she finds herself looking for any other option than taking the job on herself.

Bickering with each other is practically a full time job, but Matt and Sabrina have a history of hooking up that never fails to start them right back at square one… hating each other.


I loved this book!! Matt and Sabrina have their own brand of dislike that ultimately  keeps them avoiding whatever real feelings they have for each other. But, with their off the charts sexual tension, it is only a matter of time before one of them gives in…

Sabrina is a self-made woman who overcame an awful childhood. When Matt asks for her help, she hesitates, because he is the only man who has ever made her feel like there could be a true fairytale-type of love out there, and then he turned around and crushed her ideals right after.

Matt has a particularly jaded view of relationships due to his parents pathetic excuse for a marriage. Knowing the possibility of Sabrina ever developing feelings for him, he figures she would be the perfect person to have a fake relationship with, that won’t turn into either of them expecting more in the end.

With a history of hooking up and lukewarm friendship already between them, Matt and Sabrina’s fake relationship quickly turns into more than they signed up for…

I had such a great time reading this fast paced and enjoyable story! Matt and Sabrina’s relationship was funny and cute, and loaded with the best kind of banter and sexual tension. Matt and Sabrina were incredibly well written, complex and completely lovable as the main characters. Actually, I adored all of the characters in this book and in the 21 Wall Street series (and there was a super fun cameo, too!!)

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