Genre: Contemporary Romance
Park Avenue Prince, an all-new sexy contemporary romance standalone by Louise Bay is now LIVE!!!
THE PRINCE OF PARK AVENUE FINALLY MEETS HIS MATCH IN A FEISTY MANHATTAN PRINCESS.
I’ve made every one of my billions of dollars myself—I’m calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It takes drive and dedication to build what I have. And it leaves no time for love or girlfriends or relationships.
But don’t get me wrong, I’m not a monk.
I understand the attention and focus it takes to seduce a beautiful woman. They’re the same skills I use to close business deals. But one night is where it begins and ends. I’m not the guy who sends flowers. I’m not the guy who calls the next day.
Or so I thought before an impatient, smart-talking, beyond beautiful heiress bursts into my world.
When Grace Astor rolls her eyes at me—I want to hold her against me and show her what she’s been missing.
When she makes a joke at my expense—I want to silence her sassy mouth with my tongue.
And when she leaves straight after we f*ck with barely a goodbye—it makes me want to pin her down and remind her of the three orgasms she just had.
She might be a princess but I’m going to show her who rules in this Park Avenue bedroom.

Bay has done it again by producing another great story with intriguing characters. I have to say this one’s not the same as previous books and very commendable to try something a little different. Nonetheless, I was still treated to a strong hot alpha male and a female protagonist with plenty of sass to keep the male lead on his toes… and ooh boy, did she do just that!
Grace Astor is a socialite Park Avenue princess turned art gallery owner. I really liked how bold and determined she is. It’s not just about proving to her wealthy parents that she’s capable of standing on her own two feet, there are other reasons to be revealed. The evening of her opening exhibition for her cheating ex artist is where she meets one of the guests, Sam Shaw.
Sam Shaw has risen from nothing to a successful businessman who can afford the finer things in life and moves to Park Avenue. He isn’t a materialistic kind of guy and he doesn’t get close to people, especially women. To him, sex is just what it is and there’s never anything after. My first impression of him was the typical damaged alpha male; however, there’s a lot more depth to him than that. He knows what it’s like to lose things so precious to him, but he can’t stop the urge to get closer to Grace. Something about her intrigues him. Grace always seems to hook up with guys who aren’t any good for her but at the same time, I felt as if she wanted to help and look after them Ah, but what about her? The outcome of a very hot steamy tryst was not at all what I was expecting. Although Sam is the way he is, he was taken aback and totally bowled over by her.
Sam and Grace are quite the humorous couple. The total dancing around each other was good to read without leaving me in the least bit frustrated. The author didn’t disappoint with the sex scenes either and my goodness me, were they sizzling! Yep, I can’t resist a dirty boy! We also met Angie who’s Sam’s very good friend. Having grown up together, she knows everything that’s happened to him. My heart broke when I learnt the reasons for him being like he was.
A part in the story that I didn’t see coming made me really feel for Sam and Grace, but I had every faith all would work out in the end. Their chemistry is amazing and I very much enjoyed the dialogue and interaction between the two of them. And I’m sure I mentioned hot-hot-hot scenes which has to be reiterated.
Park Avenue Prince was a super read. Some may say it’s a tad predictable as the rich alpha damaged man and the independent strong-willed girl has been done countless times before. Throughout the story and regardless of their ups and downs, I knew they’d probably find themselves together. That being said, it still makes for an unputdownable standalone since Ms Bay cleverly writes male and female protagonists who give that little something different. Without a doubt, this story has an edge over the others out there. I’d actually like to revisit these characters in the future. Bravo!
