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...




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 Cruel Fortune Review . . . 

In Cruel Money it took me a bit to get into but I was hooked at the end and was waiting to what will happen with Penn and Nat.  And I have to admit, K.A. Linde threw me for a loop with the direction the story went.  I didn't see that coming at all.  I had imagined it going in such a different direction.

This big turn helped me stay intrigued with its unpredictability.   However, at times Nat drove me crazy but sometimes we have to keep repeating the same thing until we learn the lessen.  Hopefully this time it will stick.

I also hadn't put Katherine together with David's sister from the Wright Love duet.   And I remember her being a bit cruel but not this bad.  She's absolutely vicious.  And I hope Nat has enough gumption to fight Katherine.

Even though I did like Penn in Cruel Money we see how when things get tough he doesn't know how to proceed in this uncharted territory

"I tried that once.  Didn't exactly go as planned, did it?"

"Boohoo, you tried once.  The only time you've had to try for anything in your whole life.  Guess that's over. ..."

Thanks goodness for Lark to help Penn get his head out of his ass.  Once Penn figured he has to work for things and try more than once,  the race turned to the one who can play the dirtiest to get what they want.   And what a war it is with Nat in the middle.  This series is growing on me more and more.  We once again are left with a cliff hanger and now I can not wait for what Nat will do.

3.5 Cruel Thumbs up!

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.
