Hot Asset by Lauren Layne

This is my first novel from Lauren Layne and I am hooked. Her writing and words leave me with an addictive feeling and I can't wait to see what comes next.

I was absolutely hooked with this read. HOOKED! From the minute I met Ian and Lara I was absolutely in LOVE with them. Let the fun begin. This is one of those books that pits the characters against each other and gives you enough angst and steam that by the time someone acts, it is combustable. This was totally a 5 star read for me. I adore banter. Banter between characters is addictive. Banter between these two, was fantastic, and throw in undeniably chemistry and half the time you are laughing and the rest of the time you are on the tip of your seat hoping that they just give into it and GO FOR IT.



A sexy agent hounds Wall Street’s hottest new wolf in an exhilarating novel from New York Times bestselling 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.
