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.

Louisa’s 5 Blush Review
Oh…the angst!! One of the favorite things about KA Linde is her ability to write angst! Well, she has brought it in this book.
I would suggest getting the free Prequel to Cruel Money – One Cruel Night.
One Cruel Night gives you just a little back story to the first meeting between Penn and Natalie, six years prior. I think it’s just a great insight to why Natalie is a bit hesitant and to see that Penn has changed.
Now onto the story – Natalie is an aspiring writer who makes money by housesitting all over the world <— Yeah – how do I get that job? She’s housesitting for the Mayor of New York – watching and organizing the redecoration of the mayor’s East Hampton mansion. The dream job – beautiful home, lots of quiet time to write and look out at the beautiful fall scenery that the Hampton’s provide. Her first few days start off with some horribly nasty rejection letters. She’s purging these feelings by a nude dip in the ocean and once out of the water – she’s brought face to face with Penn. The man who hurt her six years prior – let the fun begin.
Penn really is a good guy, deep down I believe this and as the book continues he shows me exactly who he is. He has a past that often comes back to bite him in the ass, but he’s trying to change. To be a better person
“Our past getting in the way of our present.”
He’s a rich billionaire who has a “CREW” of friends, all wealthy and materialistic – pretty much the opposite of Natalie. They bring Natalie into their crew and the high jinx begins.
I absolutely LOVE Natalie, her instincts are so spot on, she knows when people aren’t genuine – she’s strong and everyone knows it!
There is everything you want in a book in Cruel Money – angst, drama, romance and some serious sexy between Penn and Natalie. I have a feeling this book is going to bring me the feels I loved so much with the Avoiding Series. The series that brought me my admiration of KA Linde and her writing. The only problem I have? It’s January and I have to wait until April for more Penn and Natalie and the crew.
“…Penn Kensington was a game changer. I knew it. And was helpless to the fact.”
Here’s the thing – as you can see above – I absolutely LOVED the book and the audible just made it THAT much better! The narrators gave a voice to Penn and Natalie and their portrayals were right on target! They WERE Penn and Natatlie, their emotions came through their words, their lust, their love and the ANGST….
A completmentary addittion to this fantastic book!
