*Release Blast with 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.

My Review

First let me just say that this being only the 2nd book I’ve read in 2019, and the 1st being this books prequel, I must say that I am beyond blown away with the world Kyla has laid out in the Cruel series thus far. If this is any sign, 2019 is going to be a good book year! I was pulled in with One Cruel Night and fell in love with Penn instantly. In Cruel Money, I was right by Natalie’s side while she navigated the world of The Crew and sought after her place in their society. While One Cruel Night can be read at any point during this series, per the Author, I say you start with One Cruel Night and prepare to jump feet first down into the rabbit hole and venture into Kyla’s very own wonderland.
In Cruel Money, we jump ahead 6 years from the end of One Cruel Night, the Prequel that the author has so graciously surprised us with before Cruel Money released. Natalie is back in the states, working on her first book, and doing so by taking up a career in house sitting for the wealthy. Her adventure takes her to the Hampton’s where she runs into the LAST person she ever thought she would, Penn. What she doesn’t realize is that Penn is a very different person from the one she met and fell in love with in Paris that one night, so many years ago. Yet, he is still the same. As the two begin to see their lives weave together, I was reminded of one of my favorite movies of the late 90’s, Cruel Intentions. It is unpredictable and snarky and uber provocative at times. This book will do things to your mind you didn’t know a book was capable of. It’s sexy, and feisty and filled with so much drama you would think it’s set on Broadway.
OK, can it be April yet!?! I need more Penn on my Kindle.
