πŸ”– REVIEW BLITZ! πŸ”– Cruel Money by K.A. Linde

Cruel Money by K.A. Linde

Release Date: January 22nd 2019 by K.A. Linde Inc.
Series: Cruel #1
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

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.

My Review:

K.A. Linde has completely outdone herself in her latest release, Cruel Money, where she explores the lives of the privilege of the Upper East Side. It’s the perfect read for those that love the glamour of New York city and a bit of mystery.

It all starts on a beach in the Hamptons, where Natalie Bishops finds herself taking care of the Mayor of New York’s summer house. After traveling to different places watching over people’s homes as her main job, Natalie is still hoping to become an official published author. But it’s her recent rejections that have her feeling angry and upset. Her life back in Charleston is not one that she wants to go back to and vacation home-watching is the perfect fit for her to be in different places by herself and be able to write. Yet, little does she know that her life was about to change forever the minute she sees her one-night stand, Penn.

Ever since she left Paris six years ago, Natalie is still angry at the way she was treated and left without answers. She wasn’t expecting to ever see Penn again, but she is quickly thrown into his world as she meets the rest of the crew. They have wealth, power and they are able to hold secrets to cover their backs. Yet, the more time she spend with Penn the more she wants to be with him, but she is not ready to live in his world.

Penn Kensington has it all, the looks, wealth and power that comes with being the Mayor’s son. But it’s the very same power that have prevented him from being himself around people. He knows that his name means something in the city, but he doesn’t want to be part of that all. As a philosophy professor he has managed to stay under the radar for some time, but it’s his sudden visit to his family home in the Hamptons that have his life changing from left and right. Penn never expected to see Natalie again, but when he finds out that she is going to be taking care of his house, he makes it his mission to make things right with her even if it means holding a big secret from her. A secret that could destroy them if she ever finds out.

I’m absolutely in love with this story! It had me hooked from beginning to end. I’m so glad K.A. Linde released a prequel to this story, One Cruel Night, because we get to find out how Natalie and Penn truly met. It’s a must read if you’re about to read this book or before reading the second book in the trilogy. Aside from delivering great characters, the story reminded me of Gossip Girl, it has the same vibe with all the glitz and glamour of New York’s elite. There are so twists in the story as well as drama and lots of steamy scenes to keep you wanting for more. Penn is not your typical wealthy playboy, instead he loves philosophy and has a cute puppy to take care of. At the same time he knows how to play by the rules when it comes to socializing with the rich and powerful. On the other hand, Natalie is “fresh meat” within the wealthy circles and she is willing to experience new things, but she is no fool. She quickly finds out who her friends are and who aren’t. But she is shocked to find out Penn’s secret and that leaves her making a huge decision in the end. All in all, I would highly recommend reading this book it has everything you could possibly want romance, drama and betrayal in the very glamour city. :)
