I haven’t seen him in over a decade, but Joshua Luca can still get to me. And I hate it.

At twenty-nine, I’m a doctor and I’ve travelled the world, but just the thought of him has me sliding my sweaty palms down my jeans and wishing I could steady my racing heartbeat.

Joshua was an almost obsession until, at seventeen, he cost me my future. In one night, I grew up and let go

𝗠𝗿. 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝗸 𝗟𝗮𝗻𝗲 is my first book by Louise Bay and the 4th in 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗠𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀. This can be read as a complete standalone and had minimal interactions with characters from the other books in the series. I would, however, go back and read the other novels now that I’ve read this one.

Hartford Kent is back in London after being away for a year at a similar version of Doctors Without Borders. Ever since Hartford was young, she’s been solely focused on work. From studying to med school and r

Louise Bay writes in the billionaire genre, usually set in the UK but sometimes New York. I love the way she crafts her men because even though they are amazing in the board room they’re also amazing in the bedroom. They know how to treat a woman right!

This particular story is in the older brother’s best friend category but we are 10 to 15 years in the future. Both characters played off of each other perfectly. She had a mad crush on him as a teenager and i

Louise Bay books are always my most anticipated reads and she never let me down.
Mr. Park Lane was good, the main characters pure perfection, the flowing storyline made me finish it too soon.

Hartford had to go back to London, after years spent abroad as a doctor with Médecins Sans Frontières, because she broke her leg. Joshua is the successful CEO of his AD company. Their mothers are friends and they ask Joshua to share his apartment with Hartford while she settle in the big city again. They kne

What an adorable book.

This series is so amazing and I love these guys even more with each book.
First of all, I love the guys' friendship and how loyal they are. The same goes for their ladies and how sweet and embracing they are toward Hartford.

Joshua and Hartford have known each other for years, but haven't interacted in about a decade.
After harboring a huge, unriquited infatuation over Joshua for so long in her teen years (and, on some level, paying for that), Hartford is once again around his

I adored Mr. Park Lane by Louise Bay; it was the perfect balance of sweet and sexy as two people who had known each other as children and teens, form a friendship and more all while getting to know the people they’ve become in the ten years since they’ve seen each other.

We’ve seen Joshua Luca in the previous books in this series and know his stance on committed relationships and marriage, not going to happen after being left at the altar. Joshua is a successful business owner of a luxury brand a

There are not enough words for how much I loved Joshua and Hartford! I absolutely loved Hartford in how she was so unapologetically herself, but also showed her softer side. She was a force to be reckoned with, and only someone like Joshua could have taken her on! Joshua was the perfect, swoony man for her! I loved the kind and compassionate person he was with Hartford and how she brought him out of his shell. These two together were so perfect together! Their growth was so natural, and I loved ...more

Mr. Park Lane is the fourth book in a series of wealthy, witty, sexy British “mates” who each find love in London. I found it very clever of the author to name each book after the affluent area where the individual hero lives. I live in the U.S. and really enjoy learning about European culture, and this author’s brilliant words always take me away and into their world.

In Mr. Park Lane, Joshua Lucas is a successful business owner of a marketing/advertising firm, Luca Brands, with mostly luxury br

Joshua Luca and Hartford Kent called to my romantic soul. A long and painful journey for these two. Twists and turns, collisions that altered their course, but in the end, the ride was worth the final destination.

Joshua and Hartford had been forged together through friendship long ago.  Her recollection of the situation far clearer than his due to her teenage crush.  But then again, both were younger, still growing into the people they now were.  Joshua was still handsome and charming.  He was a

Wow, hold back all the other Mister’s, Joshua has swooped in and stole my heart!

Hartford is needing somewhere to stay in London after leaving her medical post in Yemen until she finds something more permanent and her mum sets up a place for her. It comes at a cost though, she will be staying with her old crush, who she hasn’t seen in ten years. She thought she could suppress her old feelings but seeing and living near him only intensifies them, disabling her force field.

The absolute hottest of this series! I’m not sure what it was-maybe the innocence and kindness of the main female lead-but this book was just exploding with chemistry from the very beginning when Hartford arrived in London seeing Joshua for the first time after a long, long time. From there there’s so much comfort between them-it seemed so genuine that this is how amazing this author is to just make you feel you’re right there with the characters.

I think this is my favorite book from Louise Bay yet! Hartford and Joshua were fantastic and I absolutely loved their story!

Hartford and Joshua complement each other in such a beautiful way. They are both ambitious and hardworking, and watching Joshua teach Hartford how to live a full life outside of just work was so much fun. They both brought out a lighter side of the other in this way that totally captured me from the very beginning. The chemistry between these two was palpable.

Everyone dreads meddling moms but maybe Hartford & Joshua’s moms were on to something;)

I love a good friends to lovers story & Mr Park Lane is perfect. I takes a really good friend to be your dating coach (even if he did it for his own reasons), make drastic business moves because you have influenced him, learn how to bake and cancel his Miss Tuesday 😳.

I read Mr. Park Lane during my vacation. Not only did I enjoy the sun, but also the story about Joshua and Hartford. This amazing woman has had a soft spot for Joshua from an early age. Due to circumstances she comes back to London and moves into his apartment. The crush never passed and only gets stronger. Still, it takes her a while to realize that he's not just a handsome rich good looking man with his dimple, but that he really is a nice guy.

4 star Review Mr. Park Lane (The Mister Series #4) by Louise Bay
Joshua and Hartford have history until he disappeared when Hartford was seventeen. All it took was one night to change the course of her future. Now twelve years later he is back in her life and is her new roommate. What will happen when the lines are blurred and they cross the line? Hartford was convinced she was over him, until she was forced to move in with him and she found that the chemistry is just as intense and heated.

Oh. My. Goshhhh this book completely blew me away! All I can say is that Ms. Bay knocked this one out of the park. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. It was everything I thought it was going to be. Mr. Park Lane had me smiling from ear to ear and had me swooning throughout the entire story.

Joshua and Hartford stole my heart from the very first page. Usually I am always gushing about the hero and while he was fantabulous, Hartford stole the show. Ms. Bay created one of my

Mr. Park Lane was sweet and fairly sexy, and pretty lighthearted. Hartford and Joshua had great chemistry and their banter was wonderful.

I really appreciated Hartford's humble, altruistic nature, as well as her fierce self-reliance.

Joshua's character was funny and charming but also I loved how he encouraged Hartford to stop and take care of herself. He urged self-reflection and self-care, something she really nee
