get revenge in her new dark and glamorous life on the Upper East Side in the
conclusion to USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s billionaire romance
Darkness swept in.
Smothering everything in its inky black.
I have turned into their worst nightmares.
And I will not rest until they pay.
This series is the one that gave me an entirely new perspective on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It is the series that made me open my eyes to just how cruel privileged trust fund babies can be. It brought me such delight to follow this journey with Natalie as she also learns to navigate the UES and become one of the people that sought to destroy her. In Cruel Legacy we get the conclusion to Natalie and Penn’s story. And it leaves me utterly heartbroken that it’s over now! It was beautiful, it was adventurous, it was expressive and hands down the best series of 2019.
In Cruel Legacy we pick right back up where the previous installment had left us, wanting more. Things begin to get more serious for Natalie she finds herself entwined in the lives of the Crew so intricately, that her objective is closer to being met than she would have ever planned. Things are falling into place exactly how she has plotted her revenge. She has grown so much from her time with Penn in Paris and even on the beaches of the Hamptons. She has now been crushed by the doings of the Crew and will not rest until they pay. As it unfolds, you truly see Natalie’s character grow in many ways. Her character arc has been very interesting to follow from the streets of Paris and her time with Penn, to how her mind works now. Penn and Natalie’s relationship is as strong as ever, but if Natalie won’t give up the games she wants to play with her enemies, will they be able to survive anything meaningful? Penn was phenomenal in this one, and he had some making up to do after his past behavior, so I was thrilled at every glimpse of him.
This book completely wrapped up the series in such a nice way, while still bringing the Kyla angst we area accustomed too. It was a romantic conclusion to a twisty and drama filled world that I came to love!
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…
