Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the
"Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in
love with. It's our great pleasure to present Lauren Layne.
I write contemporary romance, and I generally classify them as romantic comedies
as they’re pretty heavy on the banter, and light on the angst, though I do love
ripping your heart out along the way, before putting it back together with a
My most recent endeavor is HOT ASSET (May 22nd), a
Wall Street romance about a playboy in a suit who likes to bend the rules, and
the by-the-book SEC investigator out to take him down ...
Thirty-something city girl seeks fans of rom-coms who appreciates smart
heroines, and confident heroes who are both gentlemen and alpha. Author feels
qualified to write such stories, as she lives in Manhattan with her husband of
11 years, who she met in … high school.
What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:
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.
