Lose yourself to the dark and glamorous underbelly of the Upper East Side in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde's new billionaire romance Cruel Trilogy.
She was supposed to be a one night stand.
A way to sate my sexual appetite.
I let her glimpse the man I am. The face that I hide behind my carefully cultivated life. But she ripped open that divide—and there’s no going back.
Now, she’s here. In my city.
I don’t care that I’m Manhattan royalty and she’s the help.
Only that she’s living in my summer home. With me.
And I want more.
5 Star Review by Lorena
This is by far the best book K.A. Linde has written.
I was so freaking excited for this book and did a happy dance when I saw it pop up on my kindle and couldn't wait to get started on it.
I absolutely LOVED, LOVED this book so much!!!
The drama and the angst had me gripping my device so tight not knowing what was coming next. The characters were just down right phenomenal.
Natalie is a house sitter and has been given the job to sit a house in the Hamptons and it belongs to the Mayor. She is to get it prepped and ready for a huge event she will be having at the end of summer. What Natalie wasn't expecting was to see Penn Kensington again after six years. She has a lot of resentment and anger towards him because she had a one night stand with the guy and never heard back from him. He pretty much ghosted her!
There is a game that is being played of cat and mouse between Penn and Katherine. Katherine and Penn belong to a little click called "The Crew" and any ways, in my opinion, Katherine has been harboring feelings for Penn for a long time but he doesn't reciprocate. So she makes a bet with him that he can't make Natalie fall in love with him and he begs to differ. In the end someone is bound to end up hurt. Katherine is one of those mean girls type that will do whatever she can to get what she wants.
Just when Penn and Natalie are starting to get to a comfortable place , things explode, secrets are revealed and hearts end up broken.
I was blissfully happy with the way this book was going, until I wasn't. The end just left me with my mouth literally agape and was cursing the author for leaving me with this cliffhanger. Granted, I knew that this wasn't a stand-alone and I know more is coming later this year on this duo, but ugh! Can it be spring now!!!!
K.A. Linde is a phenomenal writer and I love her work, but Cruel Money is, by far, my favorite of all the books I've read from her so far!!
