He’s a Wall Street wolf. She’s been hired to tame him. From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne comes a wildly sexy novel of business and pleasure.

Twenty-eight and filthy rich, Matt Cannon is the youngest broker on Wall Street. He may be a “boy wonder,” but he’s every inch a man. Ask any woman—any night. But when Matt’s latest fling makes scandalous headlines, his clients get anxious, and his bosses at Wolfe Investments level an ultimatum: keep his assets zipped, get a “real” girlfriend, and clean up his act. Only one woman can help Matt with something this hard.

For PR genius Sabrina Cross, the best fixer in Manhattan, playing Matt’s steady is going to be a challenge, even if it’s just for show. They already have an explosive history, she can’t stand the cocky party boy, and worse—she can’t stop thinking about him. So who’ll dare to break her “no touching” rule first? Because when that happens, Matt and Sabrina’s game of let’s pretend will get so hot it could set both their reputations on fire.

Jenny’s Review

I keep falling more and more in love with this author’s writing. This book is fun, sweet, and leaves you hoping and begging for a happy ending. We met both Matt & Sabrina in book one of this series, however if you haven’t read book 1, it isn’t necessary but I am sure you’ll love it, this is a stand-alone read 🙃

Getting this story on Matt & Sabrina, I was quite excited. Matt is partners in the Wall Street Firm, Wolfe Investments, with Ian (book 1). Ian is lifelong best friends with Sabrina. Matt & Sabrina hook up (friends with benefits) throughout the 4 years they’ve known each other. Both, Matt & Sabrina don’t believe in love, they don’t believe in romance nor neither want a happily ever after. So what happens when Matt needs Sabrina’s help to make it look like he’s in a committed relationship. Can they both pretend and not get emotionally involved, keep love out of the their relationship? Is it possible when they both want each other yet they hide feelings for each other, oh and neither want any commitment?

“I want you because you’re my mortal enemy, Sabrina.”
“Why”
His eyes lock on mine. “Because of all the women in my life, you’re the one I can count on to never fall in love with me.”

To call this a friends to lovers novel wouldn’t be right, It’s kinda of like a enemies to lovers book, okay not that either. It is more like a Frenemies to lovers book — Yes! One you don’t want to miss. It’s full of sexiness, lots of sass, and a heck of undeniable love.

Definitely a charming, unique, and layered book. Pick it up upon release day❤
