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.
Wow what a start to a trilogy it had it all, love Natalie meets Penn on her last night in Paris and loses her virginity and in the morning, he is gone without a word. To appreciate how that made Natalie feel, and how special it was I advise you to read ONE CRUEL NIGHT which is free at the moment. It will give you the insight to how Natalie feels when they meet 6 years later in Cruel Money.
Let’s get back to Cruel Money, Natalie is housesitting in the Hamptons when Penn arrives with his friends. All rich and entitled with too much time on there hands. When Penn is shouted at by what they call the help his friends find it entertaining. They set into motion unbeknown to Natalie a disaster in the making.
Natalie is an author and is writing hopefully a bestseller, with plenty of hot romance.
I loved Natalie independent, mature a mistrust of men because of Penn. Penn was straddling two worlds which was stopping him living completely in one. Happiest with just Natalie and Aristotle. This first installment of the trilogy has all the ingredients to pull into the story. A hot guy, a romance writer in the making. Natalie and Penn were great together, but we have angst waiting to happen.
I thought Natalie is great strong mature for her age, being only 23 and when Penn took her virginity she was only 18. It was very special for Natalie, and you can read about in One Cruel Night a prequel to the trilogy. There is nothing stopping just reading Cruel Money, but I think it gives you a greater understanding of Natalie’s actions when she meets Penn again.
