Book & Author Details:
Cruel Fortune (Cruel #2) by K A Linde
Publication date: 23rd April 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
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…
This is, quite frankly, an exercise in “waiting for the other shoe to drop” throughout the entire book. The constant subtle tension has you second guessing everything. And it just works soooo well!
Now, don’t get me wrong – I really don’t like some of the choices that both the main protagonists made, but the way they weave into the story arc is seamless. The author has done a great job of creating strong, yet flawed characters – keeping them just grounded enough to relate to – despite their surroundings, despite their behaviour.
That ending though? That bubble of anger? You just know the final volume will be explosive.
Bring it on.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
