Where do I start after reading the first in a trilogy and sat pondering on what an entertaining, angst enjoyable read Cruel Money was and do it justice for the potential reader. I haven’t stopped talking about this with my book buddies and I will urge the unsuspecting book world to pick this delight up.

Natalie and Penn had a brief encounter six years ago and bump into each other unexpectedly at the beach house Nat is looking after for two months. Penn only ever wanted a one night with her; nonetheless, Nat got to see a different side to the man who just wanted to sate his vast sexual appetite. What does it matter if he’s seen as Manhattan Royalty and Nat is just the hired help! Could these two different worlds work well together or collide and crash? Living in the summer house might or might not be an absolute disaster. Anything is possible.

Natalie Bishop is a 24-year-old aspiring author. She grew up as a military brat moving from one place to another so as an adult, she loves nothing more than drifting from one place to another. The house where she works stands for high society and is amongst some pretty impressive properties. It’s the perfect solution for her to earn money and at the same time, try to break into a writing career.

Penn Kensington is from the Upper East Side and one of the elite. Filthy rich, he had no wish to work in the family business and found his own path as a philosophy professor. His group of lifelong friends are all from the same cut and go by the name of The Crew. A bunch of cruel guys who pretty much view anyone outside their circle as beneath them. It’s the ultimate clicky group. Although Penn is tied to them, there is a part of him that wants to be better and improve his behaviour towards others. I felt at times he needed a bit more of a backbone towards the Crew members.

Cruel money is full of twist and turns, drama, angst and pure sexual chemistry that just sizzles between the two protagonists. The side characters equally intrigued me and had me chomping at the bit to find out their next move. Obviously, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Penn and Nat and I can’t not mention the puppy, Aristotle. Such a cute little addition to the story belonging to Penn but loved Natalie. He never left her side and it gave a bit of lightheartedness to the story.

I’d read this author’s works a few years ago and although she’d dropped off my radar, I remember how I loved her words back then. Since finishing this offering, I’ve tried getting into other reads and whilst I’m a sucker for a great story, Cruel Money is still niggling in the back of my mind. This is the first of a trilogy and I’m so looking forward to seeing where I’ll be taken in the next two instalments. Get ready for a full-length romance; however, this shouldn’t deter you in the least. As a series, could it have been shorter? No way! Linde has given an action-packed story that’ll keep you enthralled from the first page to the last.

I gave 5 stars to a great plot, exhilarating characters and for the author’s ability to suck me in and imprint this story constantly in my mind. I’m sure Ms. Linde would say that my reaction to her words would be her job is done. Or is it? Wait for Cruel Money!

COVER REVEAL ~ ENTICE ME by Kelly Elliott

Today we are delighted to be sharing the cover for Kelly Elliott’s all-new contemporary romance, ENTICE ME

Since the moment Kaelynn Dotson walked into my world, I haven’t

been able to think, eat, or sleep. After having my heart broken by

the only woman I’ve ever loved, Kaelynn has ignited something deep

down inside me—a flame so hot that I cannot ignore, no matter how

hard I try.

I vowed to never open myself up to a woman again, but there’s

something about Kaelynn that is drawing me to her.

There’s just one problem.

She’s hiding something from me. Trust is something I need, but

when it comes to Kaelynn, all the lines seem to be blurred. I know I

should take this as a warning and walk away, but for some reason, it’s

only enticing me more.

~~~~~

I’m living a lie.

I’m not the girl from a middle-class family in Utah like Nash thinks. I’m

the heiress to a billion-dollar fortune, and that’s not what he’s looking for. He’s

had that before, and it left him scarred.

If the truth comes out, I’ll lose the only man I’ve ever fallen in love

with . . . I’m not sure I’m willing to give him up.

DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers

Deliver2500x1563

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it’s whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can’t deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.


VANQUISH, Book 2

Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.


DISCLAIM, Book 3

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?


DEVASTATE, Book 4

“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”

Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.

When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.

Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.

EXCERPT REVEAL ~ WE SHOULDN’T by Vi Keeland

We Shouldn’t, a stand-alone contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland is releasing 21st January!

COVER CREDITS:

Model: Lucas Bloms

Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

 

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger.

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.

Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.

His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator.

Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d saw me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival.

There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it.

We shouldn’t—but straddling that line could be so much fun.

Figures.
It was the gorgeous guy I’d seen in the elevator. And here I thought we’d had a little spark.
Bennett Fox grinned like he’d already been named my boss and extended his hand. “Welcome to Foster Burnett.”
Ugh. He wasn’t just good looking; he knew it, too.
“That would be Foster, Burnett and Wren, as of a few weeks ago, right?” I iced my subtle reminder that this was now our place of employment with a smile, suddenly thankful my parents had made me wear braces until I was nearly sixteen.
“Of course.” My new nemesis smiled just as brightly. Apparently his parents had sprung for orthodontic care, too.
Bennett Fox was also tall. I once read an article that said the average height of a man in the US was five-foot-nine-and-a-half inches; less than fifteen percent of men stood taller than six feet. Yet the average height of more than sixty-eight percent of Fortune 500 CEOs was over six feet. Subconsciously, we related size to power in more ways than just brawn.
Andrew was six foot two. I’d guess this guy was about the same.
Bennett pulled out the guest chair next to him. “Please, have a seat.”
Tall and with gentlemanly manners. I disliked him already.
During the ensuing twenty-minute pep talk given by Jonas Stern—in which he attempted to convince us we weren’t vying for the same position, but instead forging the way as leaders of the now-largest ad agency in the United States—I stole glances at Bennett Fox.
Shoes: definitely expensive. Conservative, oxford in style, but with a modern edge of topstitching. Ferragamo would be my guess. Big feet, too.
Suit: dark navy, tailored to fit his tall, broad frame. The kind of understated luxury that said he had money, but didn’t need to flaunt it to impress you.
He had one long leg casually crossed over the other knee, as if we were discussing the weather rather than being told everything we’d worked twelve hours a day, six days a week for was suddenly at risk of being in vain.
At one point, Jonas had said something we both agreed with, and we looked at each other, nodding. Given the opportunity for a closer inspection, my eyes roamed his handsome face. Strong jaw, daringly straight, perfect nose—the type of bone structure passed down from generation to generation that was better and more useful than any monetary inheritance. But his eyes were the showstopper: a deep, penetrating green that popped from his smooth, tanned skin. Those were currently staring right at me.
I looked away, returning my attention to Jonas. “So what happens at the end of the ninety-day integration period? Will there be two Creative Directors of West Coast Marketing?”
Jonas looked back and forth between us and sighed. “No. But no one is going to lose his or her job. I was just about to tell Bennett the news. Rob Gatts announced he’ll be retiring in a few months. So there will be a position opening up for a creative director to replace him.”
I had no idea what that meant. But apparently Bennett did.
“So one of us gets shipped off to Dallas to replace Rob in the southwest region?” he asked.
Jonas’s face told me Bennett wouldn’t be happy about the prospect of heading to Texas. “Yes.”
All three of us let that sink in for a moment. The possibility of having to relocate to Texas shifted my mind back into gear, though.
“Who will make the decision?” I asked. “Because obviously you’ve been working with Bennett…”
Jonas shook his head and waved off what I was beginning to question. “Decisions like this—where two senior management positions are being merged into one office—the board will oversee and make the final determination of who gets first pick.”
Bennett was just as confused as me. “The board members don’t work with us on a daily basis.”
“No, they don’t. So they’ve come up with a method of making their decision.”
“Which is?”
“It’ll be based on three major client pitches. You’ll both come up with campaigns on your own and present them. The clients will pick which they like best.”
Bennett looked rattled for the first time. His perfect composure and self-assuredness took a hit as he leaned forward and raked long fingers through his hair.
“You’ve got to be kidding me. More than ten years, and my job here comes down to a few pitches? I’ve landed half-a-billion dollars of ad accounts for this company.”
“I’m sorry, Bennett. I really am. But one of the conditions of the Wren merger was that due consideration be given to the Wren employees in positions that might be eliminated because of duplicity. The deal almost didn’t go through because Mrs. Wren was so insistent that she not sell her husband’s company, only to have the new organization strip away all of Wren’s hard-working employees.”
That made me smile. Mr. Wren was taking care of his employees even after he was gone.
“I’m up for the challenge.” I looked at Bennett, who was clearly pissed off. “May the best woman win.”
He scowled. “You mean man.”

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of
We Shouldn’t!
