On the outside Penn seems just like his privileged friends but I can see a more sensitive side hidden just below the surface and Natalie had a way of pulling it out. I fear for Natalie's emotions and wellbeing as some of the characters seem to stop at nothing to get their wicked way. Clothed like a god walking off of a James Bond set with dark hair and midnight - blue eyes that flickered in the dying embers. But creating said mess is part of his charm. He never left her side and it gave a bit of lightheartedness to the story. A Linde book is a fun and fast paced read.
Possibly with flashbacks, the quick fall into love would have been more understandable, maybe make the fallout more heartbreaking. Regarding the side characters…on the one hand, there were some that drove me nuts, and then there were ones I thought were okay such as Lewis, and Amy. There is an ease to Natalie. But the way that Penn and his friends play with lives and feelings reminds me a little of that movie, but at least they were kids, these are spoiled rich adults who can find nothing better to do than pray on an innocent woman's heart. Linde is this years most scandalous story yet! As much as I may feel like I know where this is headed, I also know that K A Linde won't take me on the predictable path, something I appreciate greatly.
Penn and Natalie have a past filled with hot sexy times but a present filled with nothing but drama and secrets. I let her glimpse the man I am. Cruel Money takes place 6 years after One Cruel Night, which is what made me so excited about this book and the series. This story is full of drama, anguish 4. He's a spoiled rich kid, yes, but he's so much more than that. Though I have to give a special mention to my favourite out of the lot — Lewis.
Although Penn is tied to them, there is a part of him that wants to be better and improve his behaviour towards others. Book two can not release soon enough because this girl needs more Penn in her life. This was probably one of Kyla's best writing I've seen in a very long time. Living the nomad life and truly enjoying what she does, Natalie is now in the Hamptons house sitting for Mayor Kensington when Penn Kensington, the guy who made her last night in Paris six years ago the most beautiful night of her life and then tarnished it the next day. I am a huge--hey-yooooooooge--fan of K A Linde's erotic scenes. With strong characters and sexual tensions, readers could feel the palpable chemistry brewing between Penn and Natalie. This story is filled with secrets, twists and drama all the way through the story creating an epic read.
A great start to this series and I cannot wait for the next book! This film is pretty intense and deals with sex, drugs, seduction and alienation in a brave, way that makes it appealing to all teenagers. They like to play games and the lies and secrets are wicked, the scandals are twisted. There will also be a list of synonyms for your answer. It feels all too high school-y and for the life of me I am not staying around for the obvious cringe-fest that is to come. Complete with everything you'd expect from these socialites with the conniving, cunning and outright cruel behavior, they twist and turn this story up into one heck of a knot! Linde and honestly, I am not sure what rock I was living under. A hot guy, a romance writer in the making.
One day, he meets a pianist called Laure in a bookstore and falls in love with her. All rich and entitled with too much time on there hands. Gostaria de que a história nos próximos livros se desenvolvessem de uma outra maneira, desse uma reviravolta na história. But their attraction and chemistry is still undeniable. His group of lifelong friends are all from the same cut and go by the name of The Crew. He sets his sights on Natalie and will not slow down in his pursuit of her, past mistakes, secrets and scandals be damned. I knew from the beginning of the story what the cliff hanger would be and the basic plot.
Penn Kensington had done everything he could to ruin what was left of the romantic in my soul. She was supposed to be a one night stand. Along the way, Kathryn tries to help sexually-inexperienced Cecile Selma Blair get some action in her life, while she starts screwing Cecile's ex-music instructor! It feels all too high school-y and for the life of me I am not staying around for the obvious cringe-fest that is to come. And anyone that has read a Linde book knows that her characters with money make for a wild, evil and fast-paced ride filled with high fashion, decadent living and a whole lot of drama. You can expect to add this to your favorites list.
Also in play is Cecile, a naïve girl whose mother had enlisted Kathryn to help her fit in at her new school. Natalie finds herself working where he is spending his summer. If you love stories that are dripping in deception and about the glamorous lifestyle of the Upper East Side that hides its deviousness behind fake smiles and glitter then this is it. I completely devoured Cruel Money. He is a real charmer and genuine and true with Natalie and I would love to see more scenes between the two of them. A way to sate my sexual appetite. The plot is brilliant and the story captivating! And anyone that has read a Linde book knows that her characters with money make for a wild, evil and fast-paced ride filled with high fashion, decadent living and a whole lot of drama.
