Cruel Legacy is the third and final part in the Cruel trilogy. We pick up where part two left off with Natalie Bishop vowing to wreak revenge on the crew from Upper Eastside. She had been humiliated yet again. After going home to Charleston to lick her wounds, Natalie comes back through the flames to settle her grievances or so we would believe. Reacquainted with Penn Kensington, he sets about training Nat how to live and survive the big city and the socialites of New York.

Natalie builds up her public persona and is gaining lots of new friends. She makes herself seen and heard. The bohemian girl has a radical change in appearance and behaviour much to my dismay. I was waiting for a car crash at any time. Penn and Natalie are full-on from the get-go in this last part of the trilogy. Steamy and passionate with each other more then ever is what we were all calling for since the second part. I couldn’t get my head around how manipulative and scheming the whole lifestyle they were living in was. This story is cruel and twisted at times, but I could see the journey all the characters were going on. It was binding everything together.

“To us my love, for being lucky enough to find the love of our lives and stubborn enough to refuse to let go.” 

I don’t know how many times my jaw dropped or I said wow! There’s so much going on to the point that I was even shocked at a couple of outcomes. This isn’t just your average romance. Full of angst and a huge testing of friendships and relationships, it’s like everyone’s got a lesson to learn by their actions and consequences. Penn Kensington has lived this life but there was something so hot and endearing about our favourite professor, I was on edge at some of the behaviour Natalie displayed. It just wasn’t her at all and I began to fear for her at how embroiled she had let her experiences shape her.

“You now you have stars on your ceiling.”

“Corona Burealis.”

“Our Crown.”
“Always my favourite story.”
“Ours is my favourite story.”

“Corona Borealis.”

I have been waiting with bated breath to read this last instalment and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Ms Linde had it all perfectly mapped out but oh boy, did she send us on a rollercoaster of a journey throughout this trilogy. Again, there’s a fantastic playlist and I haven’t stopped listening to it. Even when I wasn’t reading, I had it playing in the background as it’s such a perfect accompaniment to the book.

If I could give this more stars I would. I’ve been very vague with my review and that is because I don’t want to give too much away. I would love every person in the reading community to pick this up and trust me when I say you won’t regret it. The writing and storytelling is flawless and I know one lady that will be chomping at the bit to read this conclusion and she will probably have the audio too.


Gossip Girl meets Cruel Intention in this new second chance billionaire romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde.

Natalie Bishop was just supposed to be a one night stand. Until she steps out of the ocean at my summer home in the Hamptons completely naked.

The minute I see her, I know I can’t walk away.
She claims that she’s just here to watch the house while it undergoes renovations. That she has no interest in rekindling our fire. But every weighted glance says it’s a lie.
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.



Lose yourself to the dark and glamorous underbelly of the Upper East Side in the second book in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s new billionaire romance Cruel Trilogy.

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…
