Preview — Huge Deal by Lauren Layne
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 ...more
I’m a romance reader JUST to get that kind of giddy feeling at the end of my reads as I just received. Lauren Layne, you really are a bit of a legend. I went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows in this one and every part was so bloody good.
Sitting down, contemplating my review, I had to chuckle that English Royalty meets American Royalty. Kate, represents English royalty, while Kennedy, represents American royalty…or what I would consider American royalty. Which is a l ...more
Out of the three men, Kennedy is the most laid-back and simplest guy. Absolute good boy and workaholic. He casually dates women but never thought of settling down. However, he cares a lot about Kate, their executive assistant. He, Matt and Ian made a pact that they'll never date her. Sometimes I want ...more
And lordy, how do I even begin with this?
Yes, there are feels. And yes, my chest hurt, mostly for Kate, but ultimately, I was left with too many do ...more
Wow! I forgot how much I wanted to know Kennedy & Kate’s story, while reading the first two books in the series Hot Asset and Hard Sell. Huge Deal can be read as a standalone, but i would strongly suggest you pick them in order, because the previous main characters appear in this one as well and also, Kennedy and Kate’s relationship somehow starts in the first book. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything, but you’ll just know them better. ☺
I figured this was gonna be an explosiv...more
A lighthearted and fun romance.
This was a nice conclusion to what has been an amusing series set in the world of high finance.
I have been waiting a while now for Kate and Kennedy's story and it was charming, pleasant, easy reading so typical of Lauren Layne's writing style.
I do recommend reading this series in order as there are too many spoilers relating to the earlier stories as the heroes from all three books work in the same office.
this was ADORABLE.
might be my favourite LL ever. top 5, at least. i don't know how many i've read exactly - the stiletto series and the love unexpectedly series, and the first two in this series. i've enjoyed them all, some more than others, sure. the thing i love about lauren layne's books is that i always know what i'm getting, my expectations are always met or exceeded. realistic characters, banter, chemistry, just the right amount of conflict and angst - i'm here for it. and this was no ...more
Any fan of this series has been waiting for this story since we met Kennedy and Kate in the first book. And I do have to say, I really enjoyed it! Yes, I also have to confess, I had crazy high expectations for Huge Deal and, even though I really loved it, they weren't reached completely. I really enjoyed the start of the book, the sexual tension and the feelings. Kennedy and Kate definitely have lots of chemistry, that I can assure you! But I do wish their relationship as love p ...more
The perfect final book in this adorable series!
We've been waiting for Kennedy and Kate's story for so long and now they finally get their HEA!!!
It was sweet and funny and cute and a little frustrating and heartbreaking. I loved it.
Would've liked it better in a first person POV - but pff - it was ok.☺
This review tells exactly what I thought this book would be, sorry but not sorry I am tired of this shit.
To quote Dísir on the part that would be exactly what I would say if I read this:
''Kenendy’s utter obliviousness to Kate, his underestimation of her, his under-appreciation for her for years when it was clear she had a thing for him was painful to read about. His accidental and meaningless put-downs made it worse—or that he often made it sound like ...more

Chatty romance book thoughts:
Lauren Layne is hands down my favourite author - every release feels like a wonderful treat and this book was everything that I wanted it to be (and a little more). At this point it really does go without saying that I was overly excited for this third book of the ‘21 wall street’ series but it would be remiss of me not to tell you how happy I was to finally get this book on my kindle. I’ve been following the story of this love lo ...more
(P.S. Books 1 & 2 in this series are on sale for $1.99 for a limited time.)
But my love for this series hasn't...
Thrilled to have it in my hot little hands!

Oh, we are finally getting Kennedy Dawson's story...
Always be aware of those Still Waters...
You know they Run Deep...
So, He thinks it is time to Marry...
Well, little does he know...
The Right Choice has been right in front of his face...
I mean, this is a....
Huge Deal (21 Wall Street, #3)
Hot Asset (21 Wall Street, #1)
Since book one the energy between Kate and Kennedy has been magnetic and their story was everything I was hoping for and more! We finally get to see the other side of Kennedy and boy was he sexy as hell. Kate is a little spitfire and perfect for the seriously altogether blind Kennedy. A second chance of a different kind = friends to lovers story that will leave you smiling and prove that the heart wants what it wants no matter how long it takes.
I was hoping for more from this but I couldn’t connect with the characters and Kate ‘s dithering gave me whiplash leading to a rushed ending with a cringeworthy pda moment. I really loved Matt and Ian’s stories, I wish Kennedy’s has been as witty and engaging.
Not sure why this was written in third person narrative when the others were first person, it felt like a different series. And not in a good way.
If Kate had learned anything in her twenty-seven years, it was that there was a certain power in being...more
She looked up at him. “Really? What did you win?”
Kennedy’s eyes were warm and adoring as they locked on her. "Your heart".
Take all my coins and give me a sequel book on kate and kennedy living happily ever after. Here hoping that lauren explores Dawson family because they and them dynamics were intriguing to read.
This was FANTASTIC. I had actual chest pains throughout the first half of this book. The unrequited longing, the slow burn, the brooding, all the things unsaid... it was PHENOMENAL. I devoured this book today. I never wanted it to end.
These characters. This series. Three vastly different circumstances surrounding three deliciously different couples centered around one Wall Street office... it was everything. In many ways, this final book was MY absolute FAVORITE. I loved it so much, I ...more
Loved Huge Deal by Lauren Layne! The storyline was entertaining, well written and I couldn't put it down.
Kennedy and Kate were perfection, I loved their relationship and how they both just got each other.
Overall, Huge Deal is an excellent addition to the 21 Wall Street series and I highly recommend all the books.
Ahhh this was really cute!
Both the MCs, Kate and Kennedy are both so likeable and their banter? Omfg it was amazing.
I love the whole unrequited aspect and honestly wasn’t even that bothered that H had a gf (of 2 months) in the beginning. Despite this, the OW/OM drama is actually super tame and not at all dumb, frustrating, or angsty.
It was actually pretty funny and entertaining.
Since H had a gf in the beginning, I just wanna clarify he never cheated.
Emotionally cheated? Not really ...more
The first time Kate Henley laid eyes on Kennedy Dawson she fell...hard. However, Kennedy never picks up on what she was putting down, so Kate spends the next six years pining over him until one day she decides that she has had enou ...more
I can't decide whether this one or 'Hard Sell' are my fave from this series but I do know one thing - I adore Kate Henley in all her cute tiny glory.
I really liked the slow burn in this one and all the build-up towards romance. The friend group dynamic (which is something I'm ALWAYS weak for - well, providing that the characters are good xD) was entertaining and just a delight to read.
All in all, this might've just ended up a 4-star read, w ...more

“That works,” Matt said. “You got a coin?”
“No. Get one out of your desk.”
“You think I keep coins in my desk?” Matt asked incredulously. “Do I also go to the saloon and get weirdly possessive of my horse?” “Whatever. Kennedy?”
“I literally can’t remember the last time I touched a coin.”
