WOW & EXHALE.. MY MIND’S OFFICIALLY BLOWN

What an emotional, twisty, action-packed, angsty ride this was as Natalie transformed herself to dole out some well deserved revenge on the Crew of the Upper East Side.. but somewhere along the way she loses herself.. and could possibly lose Penn too - the man she’d loved for eight years. Their road to happiness began in Paris when she was just a naive bohemian eighteen year old virgin and it would come full circle back to Paris.. but it would be a much wiser woman who would return to where it all began. Because Natalie had, over those eight long years, been to Hell and back trusting the untrustworthy, having her dreams cruelly shattered, morphing into someone she was not, rising from the ashes of her naïveté and paying the price for her own sins along the way too. Penn was there by Natalie’s side ready to support and guide the woman he loved.. but even he, the master manipulator, reeled as revenge raged.

K.A.Linde packed so many emotions into this outstanding trilogy.. and each and every chapter gripped, thrilled, shocked or swooned me as Natalie’s riveting rollercoaster journey picked up speed, intensity and climactic uncertainty as boundaries became blurred, personalities changed and uncertain tomorrows loomed. Right from book 1 I knew Ms Linde had written something special, something unique and something that would hold my soul until it’s wickedly wonderful words finally ended.. and wow, what a compelling ride it was. I didn’t always love Natalie and I didn’t always trust Penn either.. but this talented author wielded her magical penmanship and navigated my emotions back to safe shores where love finally stilled the stormy waters in a beautiful HEA ending.

Worth a credit? Each and every book in the trilogy was, IMO, creditworthy. The books came alive thanks to the awesome narration of Virginia Rose who inflected, injected and invoked the feels, the swoons, the heat and the passion that this beautifully twisted cruel trilogy demanded. There weren’t many chapters from Penn’s PoV but Stephen Dexter was good too.

Decent story with great narration

This one picks up right after the ending in two and Natalie vows to make those who wronged her pay for all they’ve done. In true Upper East side fashion she does it in designer couture and rocking a pair of Louboutin heels. Natalie learned from the best how to play the game and they won’t know what hit them when she gets through with them.
While I liked books one and two this one was not my favorite of the bunch and seemed to leave me wanting more for Nat and Pen as a couple. I’m guessing there will be more books for this series in the future therefore any questions pertaining to the Crew weren’t addressed at all.
I am a huge fan of Virginia Rose and love everything she narrates and while Stephen Dexter has never been a narrator I sought out in the past he totally owned the character and truly became a force to be reckoned with in this series! I will be looking for more from him in the future!
