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.

⭐⭐⭐⭐! Park Avenue Prince (stand-alone). One-night-stand turns complicated when socialite & new money entrepreneur can’t keep their hands off each other!

“I can’t believe I fucked my first client,” I said, then wished I hadn’t said that out loud.
He pulled me closer and dropped a kiss on the top of my head. “I think you’ll find I fucked you.”

➳Coming from the very pits of the poor chains, to becoming the Prince of Park Avenue, Louise Bay presents a love story that will keep you on your toes for more…

➳Can dreams really come true? Can you honestly start from the very bottom and make your way to the top, become successful even when there are those who tell you that you can’t? Yeah, the answer is “yes you can,” because if Sam Shaw and Grace Astor did it (even if they are fictional characters) you can do it as well. That’s what Louise B

What does one do when all they have ever loved is lost? Well some build walls and refuse to form attachments, much like Sam Shaw did. He doesn't collect things and he definitely doesn't connect with people. At the age of 12, he lost his parents and the only way to avoid that kind of pain again was to isolate himself. You can't miss or hurt over what you've never had.

Then Sam met Grace Astor. Something about her, beyond her physical perfection, called to him and he was unable to resist her. Time

Louise Bay simply outdid herself with this one. Park Avenue Prince was everything I was expecting and so much more! I have to confess, I did re-read King of Wall Street before this: first because I really enjoyed it and second to focus on Grace's character. And well, PAP was the nicest surprise because I loved it even more than KOWS! Did you love Max King? Then you are not ready for

Grace Astor grew up on Park Avenue but she is as far from a Park Avenue Princess as you can get. She is determined to make it on her own. At her galleries first opening, an opening featuring the artwork of her cheating ex, Grace meets the intriguing Sam Shaw.

Sam knows all about losing things that you hold dear. He learned at a young age not to form connections. Sex is sex, and there is nothing after. That is until he lays eyes on Grace Astor. There is just something about her that has him takin
Park Avenue Prince is the endearing tale of Sam Shaw and Grace Astor, the Prince and Princess of Park Avenue. Sam is new money and he build himself up from nothing in run down apartments in New Jersey to living in a Park Avenue penthouse. He still remembers what it's like to have nothing though so he finds it hard to let himself get attached to material things. But as his best friend tells him, he can't leave his penthouse empty other than his ratty old couch.

I liked Park Avenue Prince but I didn't love it. Whilst I absolutely can't knock the romance, character likability or setting, because Manhattan is one of my favourite places, something was missing and it lacked the emotional punch I was hoping we were building up to.


What I did love about this was, despite the wealth aspect, how grounded Louise Bay made Grace and Sam: they were so endearing. But I think opportunities were missed when it came to Sam and, with a little more development a

When a self made billionaire Sam Shaw meets Art gallery owner Grace Aston they are both forced to deal with their pasts. Sam grew up in foster care after the death of his parents and swore never to get close to anyone again. Grace Aston grew up in luxury but shuns it preferring to make her own way in life.This is definitely a hard earned love for these two characters and both characters are very likable and the sex is pretty hot. The story line is interesting and enjoyable, but I found with the ...more

Living happy or just surviving…

Wow!! Park Avenue Prince made me cry. This story was a little harder to love than King of Wall Street. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both good. I just felt that one was easier to love (the characters) than the other.

When I met Sam, I felt like he had a block of ice around him. There were cracks and fissures in his ice, showing that he’d taken some hits. But, it was still hard, impenetrable and the picture he presented was a little distorted. A few chunks would fall

2,5... but not 3 for me, so 2 it is!

Caution: The blurb is so misleading... What you get is something else.

This was such an unnecessary read for me. Having read this blurb, I expected an alpha male hero who wants to own a free-spirited and sassy woman but what I got was totally different.

Here is what you get:

Sam Shaw loses his parents at the age of 12 and is taken care of by the Social Services. He buries his pain deep down and he tries to survive.

He doesn’t want anyone to care about in his life

I love seeing a new story unfold. I marvel at how an author can put together and create perfect characters that mesh together and are just so right for each other.

This is the story of Sam and Grace. I actually had to warm up to Sam in this one. It was not an instant love affair for me. I'm not sure why as I am usually connected to the characters Louise Bay creates. But Sam had to grow on me but it did not take long. And by about midway through the book, I was ready for my own happily ever after

Bay has once again completely blown my opinion of the romance genre to smithereens! I can only tolerate this genre in doses but with each dosage, Bay is ON FIRE!

PAP has several layers of plot that work together intricately and flawlessly. Sam is a complex character. For excellent reasons you will discover in this fabulous story, he is unable to feel, express, or recognize love. Grace appears in Sam's life like a gentle breeze. It's really humbling to "witness" each layer of Sam's experiences in

This was sweet, sexy and romantic, a nice read. Well, it was until the conflict anyway.

Grace is New York royalty, having grown up on Park Avenue she's determined to make it on her own; so determined, she's actually had to sell her favourite Renoir (the one her grandad gave her) to pay for the set up of her fine art gallery. Imagine the sacrifice! I liked her though, she loved what she did and that came across in the story and felt fairly fresh and original.

I loved Indigo Nights by this author and it's the same with this amazing book 'Park Avenue Prince'.

I really enjoyed complex, generous  Sam and sassy, lovely Grace. Their chemistry was amazing and there are some hot scenes in this book. I would have loved a little bit more groveling at the end ;) Love can't be stopped...

I couldn't put this one down. It made me feel so much and am looking forward to read more f

While I enjoyed this book, I didn't love it as much as some of the past books by Louise Bay.
It was slow and not much was happening but I think I can say it was a sweet heart warming story.

4.5 Park Avenue CROWNS

Louise Bay always delivers a steamy read with interesting and engaging characters, and in Park Avenue Prince Sam Shaw has completely stolen the show and my heart.

Sam's character in the story is completely captivating. His climb up the corporate ladder with real estate investments without any type of post-secondary education speaks to his dedication not only in business but in all things. I also love his lack of connection to material possessi
This book was good. I did find that the story did drag a lil in parts but overall it was a good story. Grace and Sam were really great together. I liked the characters a lot and I was dying to more of Grace. I loved her her in the King Of Wall Street. Grace is a beautiful sexy woman. Grace knows what it's like to come from high class life. It's not something that she likes or dislikes she is an independent girl and likes to do things on her own. Things haven't been easy for Grace but she always ...more

Park Avenue Prince is Louise Bay’s next fantastic release. I truly believe that hands down, this is Louise's best book to date.
Louise wrote her best storyline, her best male hero and her best heroine. Louise pulled out all her cards and played all her aces with Park Avenue Prince and I adored every second of it.

Louise Bay knows how to write!! This story was impeccable. The words seduced me, captivated me, I was so drawn into EVERYTHING, that I easily read it in one sitting.

It started very strong: heroine who didn’t like the hero immediately – yes! Heroine who didn’t have weak knees and swollen trembled folds female parts – yes! Heroine who didn’t drool over the hero and didn’t want to lick his abs worship his perfect body – yes!

Ok, some chapters later she had puckered nipples and afterward begged for his d*ck (is there such thing in real life???).

I liked the book till the point he pushed her away. I didn’t understand why, because all his issues were not

So conflicted about this one!

I've loved everything I've read from the author so far, so I thought I'd be in for a treat with this book, but I was left wanting... much more than this.

Let's focus on the things I really liked, because I hate to be negative. Self-made billionaire hero, an orphan since 12, has basically one friend in the whole wide world (and I loved Angie's character the most!). You get how he possibly handles women and relationships.

Oh dear Lord Sam! <3 <3

I am in love with this story. It was sweet, hot and so so romantic. Sam is an absolute alpha male but his heart holds sadness. I loved his sweet side that Grace was perfectly able to bring out. I wanted to hug him and just love him.

Grace is my hero. The way she handled herself is badass. She knew she needed to be strong for both herself and Sam. She didn't scare away easy and just her eternal love for Sam made my heart ache.

I am a Louise Bay fan for life. ~Sonal
**2.5 stars**

Yikes, what a bland book! The conflict is supposed to be about the hero not wanting to form relationships because he thinks he cannot handle the pain - his parents died when he was 12 and then he was sent to foster care. But I think they spent more time on him buying art and furniture! The love scenes were very clinical and the hero was so deliberate that he sometimes came across as calculating. Not even Sebastian York could save this.
