About the Book

An alpha among the wolves of Wall Street, Kennedy Dawson rose to the top of the pack by striking the right contracts at the right times. But there’s one deal that’s been giving him a run for his money—a pact to never again let his assistant, Kate, get under his skin. She may be smart, gorgeous, and sharp as a whip, but she’s definitely off-limits.

Kate Henley isn’t a banker, but she knows a thing or two about risk management—specifically, about managing her attraction to her smolderingly sexy boss. She already fell once, and Kennedy showed no sign of paying a return on her investment. So when Kennedy’s brother starts pursuing her, Kate figures she has the best of both worlds. Jack is charming, rich, very attentive, and the spitting image of his older brother.

It’s also making Kennedy think twice. But to win Kate’s heart, he’ll have to broker the deal of a lifetime…and prove he’s worth the risk.

My Thoughts

This is another winner of a series from Lauren Layne. I’ve enjoyed every single book and I was dying to read Kennedy’s story. I love Kennedy and watching Kate throughout the previous two books had me on pins and needles to see how she and Kennedy would finally come together. I honestly would love to be Kate. She’s cute, uber-competent but relatable in that she can be slightly socially awkward at times plus she gets the super sweet, sexy guy. There wasn’t quite the same amount of external drama going on as in the first two books. The story focuses mainly on watching Kennedy slowly become aware of Kate as more than just his capable assistant and wondering if he missed his chance with her. It was lovely watching the two of them dance around each other and finally come together. I am hoping we get to see Kennedy’s brother, Jack, get his HEA as well. He was one of my favorite supporting characters.
