How Far Would You Go To Get Or Keep A Man?

New York attracts a multitude of young, ambitious and successful people. It’s a draw for highly educated, professional women in the prime of their marrying years. It’s also allures well-educated, highly sexual, money-driven men. But the problem is, there are far more women than men in the mix. Studies have revealed that in New York women outnumber men four to one. This often cited statistic is used to support an argument that the gender imbalance makes it more difficult for some women to find a partner. New York is described as a ‘candy store’ for straight single men on the dating scene, leaving gloomy prospects for young women because the male-to-female ratio is in favor of men.

Commentators have said that more women flock to the Big Apple than men in a bid to have it all but often eligible men are hard to find. More importantly when they find that man, an increasing number are unwilling to commit. On the one hand, the men that I interviewed said that they do not treat New York as a ‘candy store’ and that it was impossible for good men to get a date in NY. The men argue that the women are insane, that they limit themselves statistically as well as demographically to a tiny pool of men, some of whom are married, yes married, who meet their exacting requirements of a 7 figure salary, looks, and religion.

On the other hand the women said that a good man is hard to find. It’s the complaint of many women in New York that dateable men are either taken or gay. What are women to do about this quandary? Some would say leave New York and the East Coast. What if you do not want to leave New York, and like the woman, Jessica, in Sleeping with a Wall Street Banker you have found your man. How far would you go to get and keep your man? Unmarried, childless and with a biological clock that has all but stopped ticking, Jessica feels betrayed by her ex-boyfriend. She is jealous of the woman who he is having a relationship with her ex-boyfriend and who, in Jessica’s eyes, is “her” person. Afflicted with Dissociative identity disorder (DID) – multiple personality disorder – she resorts to destruction.

Book Description:

Sleeping With A Wall Street Banker is a psychological thriller that begins when lawyer Alice Francis leaves her life in London for a new start with Wall Street banker Jake Logan in New York. She quickly learns that this is a man consumed by his need to control; he loves but on his terms. When Jake’s ex-girlfriend, Jessica, finds out about Jake’s relationship with Alice, Alice’s life takes a dark turn. For all the trappings of success from a Wall Street career, Jake is a man tormented by the irrational guilt he carries from his past relationship with Jessica. Jessica is unmarried and childless with a biological clock that has all but stopped ticking, and Jake is her back-up plan. Her ultimate goal is to fix Jake’s life by interfering, setting him up, and blackmailing him in an effort to force him into a horrible relationship that was never meant to be. With Alice in the picture, Jessica’s goal is almost certainly a recipe for disaster and a fate equal to death itself. When the plan begins to fail, a mentally unbalanced Jessica resorts to destruction.

My Book Review:

Sleeping With A Wall Street Banker is a riveting psychological thriller that follows a love triangle with fatal consequences. Author Marlene Morgan weaves a fast paced intriguing thriller set in London and New York City that follows the development of English attorney Alice Francis and American Wall Street Investment Banker Jake Logan's romantic relationship that is destined for disaster when they move from London to New York City and encounter Jake's psychotic ex-girlfriend Jessica Brooks, who is determined to win Jake back one way or another before her biological clock runs out. Jessica suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personality disorder), and when she discovers that Alice is in the way of her getting Jake back, she will go to any means to get what she wants ... even if it has fatal consequences!

The story begins in London, where Alice meets Jake at an art gallery event. Their romantic relationship develops quickly as they both have a strong mental and physical connection with each other. As their relationship grows, there is one stumbling block to their happiness ... Jake's ex-girlfriend Jessica, who won't leave him alone. Between phone calls, texts, and emails, Jake is haunted by Jessica's obsession to reconcile, he still has feelings for her, but he wants to build upon his new relationship with Alice. When Jake is transferred back to New York City, he asks Alice to come with him ... and their new life together is about to change when Jessica resorts to anything to claim him for her own, and a vicious cycle of control and deception spins this love triangle out of control with lethal consequences.

This is a riveting psychological romantic suspense thriller that immediately draws the reader into the story from the beginning and doesn't let go until the surprising conclusion. Full of romance, steamy sex, suspense, and intriguing twists and turns, author Marlene Morgan takes the reader on one hell of roller coaster ride that is sure to keep them sitting on the edge of their seat guessing what will happen next. I loved how the author interwove the romantic love triangle storyline as it alternates between the characters and settings. The intrigue builds as Jake and Alice move from London to New York City, and they encounter Jessica's psychotic plans to destroy their happiness so that she can have Jake to herself. You can't help but feel the tension build as Jessica's plans spiral out of control with unpredictable consequences that will leave you breathless.

With a complex and realistic cast of characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; richly detailed descriptions of London and New York City landmarks; and a gripping storyline interwoven with legal, financial, artistic, psychiatric aspects; Sleeping With A Wall Street Banker is a compelling and powerfully emotional story of control and love gone dangerously wrong that will keep the reader hooked until the end.
