Press & Praise

Hard Sell could easily have been read in one sitting. Everything about it works: the pacing, the characters, the dog (!), and the story (and others elements as well). Layne seemingly effortlessly takes the reader on a roller coaster of smiles and tears, all within a low-on-angst page-turning story proving that once again she is a must-read romance writer.” —Sascha Darlington’s Microcosm Explored

“My favorite in the series thus far, Hard Sell was a fast-paced ball of longing. The characters were so well-suited for one another and created a wonderful story that sucked me right in from the first page. I cannot wait for the long-awaited third couple to do the very same.” —Book Reader Chronicles

“The chemistry in this book was absolutely intense! It’s been a bit since I’ve read anything Lauren Layne and I have to say I finished Hard Sell in about a 12-hour time frame. It was a book that I didn’t want to put down!” —*Cali Book Reviews

“The chemistry between Sabrina and Matt was HOT!” —*Debbie’s World of Books

“When I read, my fiancé can always tell when I am truly into something, or if I am just reading to pass the time. I find myself missing entire conversations, and find myself asking him questions to gauge his reactions. I’ll ask him what he would do faced with a particular scenario, and see if his reactions match the characters in the books. While reading Hard Sell, I found myself engaging him in the story lines, and asking him how he would react to such scenarios if it were me and him in real life. I also found him asking me how the story was coming, so even though he wasn’t reading the book, I already had him invested in the story!” —Garden of Reading

“The romance was on point. This was a steamy book and the chemistry between Sabrina and Matt was perfect!” —What to Read Next

“Two adversaries who have a friendship based on snark lose their walls and find a new definition of love and happy ever after for themselves, even if they never thought it possible. Another wonderful installment and my favorite of the series so far!” —I Am, Indeed

“It’s perfectly built up, filled with sassy, funny dialogue and chemistry that will burn your kindle up." —Schmexy Books

“Ms. Layne gives me all the trope-y goodness I want with all the warm and fun characters I expect. Bonus points: her playboys don’t make me want to punch them in their face with their arrogance.” —Romance Reader

“I really enjoyed Hard Sell. Layne is easily one of my favorite Romance authors and I just love her more with each book I read. I definitely recommend this to Romance fans.” —Stephanie’s Book Reports

Description

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.

Excerpt

Simply and reluctantly put, men don’t come better-looking than Matt Cannon. He’s the epitome of a golden boy. Perfectly styled blond hair? Check. Mischievous blue eyes? Yup. Chiseled jaw? Uh-huh. Perfect body. . .

Yeah, you get the idea.

Also, I hate him.
