Hale Wilder, aka the Anaconda of Wall Street, spent his childhood fighting to be the best to win his father’s love. He was the best student and the best athlete, who grew into a successful businessman and took the finance world by storm. Want to retire before you’re forty-five? He’s got you. Need your millions to be billions? He’s your man.
Young, rich, and powerful, Hale was unstoppable, until a company scandal destroys his reputation and threatens to bring down everything he’s bled for.
Becca Shields is the kickass public relations goddess spinning scandals to gold and launching has-beens into superstardom. She never expected to see Hale again—not following the humiliating night when her family caught them on the beach, barely clothed.
When Becca discovers Hale is in trouble, she can’t turn her back on the boy who was once her world and the man she never forgot.
Hale never thought he’d have another shot at greatness or with Becca. Now that he has both, he won’t let either go without a fight.
|I found this to be a very entertaining story. It begins as two young people who have grown up together and after many years of being together they are hoping to take it to the next step. This does happen because Becca’s cousins find them and proceed to bet up the guy she is with Hale Wilder. After some of Hale’s friends show up it becomes a matter of words and her father then arrives and she tells Hale to leave. Her father treats her beyond words and she eventually leaves as well. The story then takes you to ten years later. Both are successful in their fields he is a Wall Street broker, she is a PR person for a pro football. Their two lives come back together when he is accused, arrested, of insider trading. Wanting to help and not believing the charges against him she along with some other friends bring him back to his hometown to sort out the charges, and more importantly their past. It is then when they go back to that night and what happened after he left that they slowly begin to heal. It is only when he reveals his secret from his family after his father died that they truly start to become a couple, but there is still work to be done. A very good story with many good characters and even the ones you don’t like help make the story. Overall a very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
