Hot Asset (21 Wall Street #1)

HOT ASSET                                                      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.


A new series from Lauren Layne and for the first book you are introduced to bad boy finical wiz Ian Bradley. Grew up in Philly in different foster homes and never had a family. Worked from nothing and now feels he is at the top of his game. He also is a manwhore, asshole, dickhead and a finical director who is sexy as hell and women tell him that all the time. Do believe he does take advantage of that. He also says all of those things about himself. His day becomes changed for many reasons when he comes in for what he thinks is for a meeting only to find out that the person who he has been trying to flirt with at the coffee station in the break room is really an inspector from the SEC. Those letters cause many of brokers to have breakdowns, but not Ian for he knows he has done nothing wrong. Laura McKenzie is the investigator and is also the daughter of two FBI agents, and that is where she would like to work one day but on her own record not with her parents help. This case will make one fine feather for her and should help her to be on her way. Her first problem is getting past Ian and his looks and though he is good looking she knows he will not be attracted to her. Her second problem is finding evidence leaking him to a crime. The more you get into the story you start to see that he is being set up and when you find out that there is an attraction between them she waits until after her report is turned in before acting on that. Really this is when the story takes off and you get a look at all of the characters in the book and you begin to wonder if there is any chance for the two of them? Read this good story with many good characters to find out. I received this book from I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at
