Series: Bachelor Tower #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2018
Meet Dalton. He happily lives in the Bachelor Tower where women are allowed to visit but never stay for more than one night. It's a dream come true until his entire life is turned upside down by one irresistible woman.
Dalton: Women are a perk of my lifestyle. I work hard. I deserve to play harder. But I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs by getting lost in the baggage and disruption that comes with dating. I’ve seen dozens of men fail when they fall in love. Pathetic.
That's why I chose the Bachelor Tower. It was designed by a genius, my hero: the late, Garry F. Sinclair. He created an all-male haven for ambitious men who want to live like kings and play by their own rules. Casino nights, a fully equipped gym and lap pool, cigar and Scotch bar, and a media room with screens the size of the average movie theater. The list is endless. I easily network with men trying to launch their careers or those at the top who want to stay hungry. The best part: the tower attracts women, beautiful women who hang out in the lobby bar and vie for an invite upstairs. Easy, like fishing in a barrel.
Until Sinclair dies and Penny Fuller moves into the apartment next to me because the new owner doesn't share his vision.
Everyone agrees Penny can't stay. I don't want to get involved, but she doesn't understand the lengths my fellow building mates will go to to get her out. She's not only irresistibly sexy and painfully optimistic, she's also in real danger.
Siding with her would be career suicide.
Betraying her was never my intention.
Ruth Cardello hit the NYTs and USA Today for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.
What Kindle Reviewers write about her:
"Wow hot at every page. Heart stoping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."
"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story line of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like I know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."
"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."
Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.
She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
The Bachelor Tower is a bachelor's Nirvana. Men have their apartments where they can "entertain" their choice of companion for a few hours and go back for more entertainment at the lobby bar. All their needs are met: order food from the in-house service, get their shirts laundered, whatever service you need can be fulfilled. Only bachelors need to apply for an apartment there. When Penny shows up to apartment sit for her sister, the insurrection begins. A woman has been approved to dwell at the Bachelor Tower and some of the bachelors will not accept this. The only problem is the building is now owned by a woman who will change the long-standing concept of bachelors only.
Dalton and Penny cannot help running into each other. They live next to each other while sharing a common wall. Need I point out the building is not soundproof? Without actually thinking about it, Dalton is slowly drawn in to Penny's life and struggle to survive the bachelors' war to have her leave the building. Her apartment keycard is sabotaged, her vehicle is impounded, etc. and so on. This is how the bachelors fight back trying to have her leave of her own accord until they become desperate. How far will they go to get their way?
Funny, amusing, heart wracking, and deliciously titillating, this book will have you glued to its pages. You will be cheering for Penny and Dalton as they try to outsmart the bachelors of the Bachelor Tower.
