About this ebook

A new stand alone fake relationship romance set in the glitz and glamour of the Cruel world from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde...


The most eligible bachelor in New York City just asked me to be his fake fiancé.


Gavin King is six and a half feet of delectable billionaire with a devil’s smile that says he knows exactly what he’s going to do to me later. Because he has.


Three years ago, I caught him in the shower and promptly fell into his bed. But neither of us were relationship material. Not to mention I’d just broken up with his best friend.


Now, I’m back in the city and he has a plan:


Go to his cousin’s wedding.

Convince his family that he’s not an eternal bachelor.

Post a huge elaborate break up later.


With those big puppy dog eyes begging me to agree, claiming I’m the only one who can pull it off, I say yes. What could go wrong? Other than pulling it off so successfully that the line between real and fake blurs.


When my family flips the whole script, I can’t see a way out. And I’m starting to wonder if I even want one.

Cruel King is such a wonderful, entertaining story. I read this book with a huge smile on my face. This fake-relationship, friends to lovers has it all and then some! Its a story that will hook you to the very end and still have you wanting more. Gavin and Whitley are a match made in heaven, they just need to work it out for themselves. This was a book I couldn’t put down and I highly recommend you 1-click. Ms Linde has a knack for writing very intriguing, captivating stories! Loved it!

received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review. This is a stand-alone book with the NY Society world. I have only read an occasional book in this series, and I never felt lost reading this book. This is the story about Gavin King and Whit and it's a second chance, fake fiancée and friends to lover's romance.
