Book Review: CRUEL MONEY by K.A. Linde


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.

K.A. Linde is a go-to author when I'm looking for a quick, fun and steamy read. Her books rarely let me down. CRUEL MONEY sounded like just the ticket to kick my reading slump to the curb. And guess what, it did! I couldn't get enough of this story.

CRUEL MONEY is the story of Penn and Natalie, a rich boy from the Upper East Side and a poor girl trying to make it big in the writing industry. Beaten down after multiple rejection letters she just wants some peace and quite to work on her next manuscript. Penn was raise in money and never wanted for anything in his life. Except to follow his dreams and passions, not the career his family expects of him. Their paths cross when Natalie gets a summer job as a house sitter for the Mayor of New York's summer home in the Hamptons and Penn unexpectedly shows up. But this isn't where their story started, they met in Paris many years ago and shared a night never to forget. Natalie is swept up in a game of lies that could jeopardize everything.

This Pretty Woman, but she's not a hooker. Haha! Although I found some parts of the story a bit predicable, I really enjoyed and I need the know how their story will end. Make sure you start with the FREE prequel novella ONE CRUEL NIGHT, so you know where the story really begins.

A heart-stopping sexy contemporary romance prequel to USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde's new Cruel Trilogy. 

I spot the mysterious stranger across the party. 

I’d seen him in the park, writing furiously in his worn leather notebook. 

He’s pure confidence, born and bred in high society with eyes like a hawk—observant, cunning, and wicked. With sensual lips and a body made to worship, he’s exquisite. A work of art. 

While I’m young, innocent, and completely out of my depth. 

But I’m drawn to him. Captivated by his approach. When he asks for one night, I have only one word for him. 


One summer in Paris. One night with him. One cruel night.

Lose yourself to the dark and glamorous underbelly of the Upper East Side in the second book in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde's new billionaire romance Cruel Trilogy.

I finally have everything I ever wanted--fame and fortune and literary success.

Only one problem: I lost my muse.

He was tall, dark, and handsome. Broody, enigmatic, alluring, and right for me in every way.

Until he wasn't. Until I lost everything.

And I can't lose it all again. I'll do anything to keep it.

Even seeing him again...
