The prey becomes the predator.
Love. That cursed four-letter word no longer belongs in Bryna’s vocabulary. The only four-letter word she knows now is gold.
She’s well acquainted with that one. And that’s exactly what she plans to do. She’s no longer the golden girl, and when she meets a businessman who promises everything she could ever want from the arrangement, she intends to get her money’s worth.
Follow the conclusion to Bryna’s gold digging story in this scandalizing, duplicitous second book to the USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s All That Glitters series.
This series is definitely a standout in the crowd. Gold has college-romance themes with wicked twists. It is unconventional yet not too overboard. There are plenty of wild aspects that made my head spin but a solid amount of normalcy to rein me back in. I wasn’t really sure what to expect based on the summaries and teasers but I knew these books caught my attention for a reason.
Bryna is a difficult girl to like. She is wealthy, privileged, and acts reckless. Underneath her shallow attitude, a genuine and caring individual lurks but it takes some real work to peel back her protective layers. Bryna’s careless relationships with men was disturbing and there was obviously a reason for her thoughtless behavior. To be so young and for her to already be very jaded was sad. There were times that I wondered if she stayed awake at night pondering her future while some of this disastrous self-destruction took place.
Bryna startled. She hadn’t realized anyone had walked up to her while she was salivating over the earrings.
She faced the stranger, and her heart stuttered. Oh, yes. So much yes.
“Well, I have impeccable taste,” she drawled.
He smiled. “I can see that.”
He was perfect. Older than even Jude or maybe the same age. Mid to late thirties and utterly delectable. High cheekbones, full lips, chiseled strong jaw, and gleaming light-brown eyes. What she noticed next was just as important—an indulgent custom suit that fit him like a second skin. With that kind of cut and quality, it had to be something straight out of London’s Savile Row. A fine suit had all the same necessary characteristics as a diamond, and both should be worn as often as possible.
She shifted her Louis Vuitton bag to her other arm and faced him head-on. “It appears I’m not the only one with good taste.” She wet her lips.
“You can never go wrong with diamonds.”
She completely agreed. “You think so?” she asked, playing coy.
“And what exactly are you shopping for?” She was mesmerized by his cool exterior.
Their conversation was intense, and they had barely shared more than two-dozen words. He had a commanding presence with such little effort.
The man leaned in slightly. “Just browsing.”
He looked her directly in the eyes, and she got the impression he considered her to be merchandise.
