Book Review - Insatiable Bachelor by Ruth Cardello


A brand new series set in a whole new world. 

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. Brockton. 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 Brockton 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.


This is an exciting new series by one of my favorite authors.  The premise is that there is an apartment complex that has traditionally catered to bachelors and the owner has recently passed away.  His niece has taken over ownership and has leased one of the apartments to a woman.  Dalton is one of the bachelors who has been living in the apartment building an braced the lifestyle and finds that his new neighbor is the sister of the woman the apartment is rented to.  I'm not going to lie, Dalton is a huge jerk for the first half of this book, something the first person perspective made more apparently by getting a view of his interior monologue.  Penny is on the opposite spectrum from Dalton, instead of being career focused and driven, she prefers to live her life making the world better and working enough to accomodate that lifestyle.  Neither understands what would drive the other to want to be the way they are, but that doesn't stop the instant attraction they have when they meet.  Seeing the two work through this helps both of them grow and is at times very comical for the reader.  I also enjoyed the subplot relationship between Penny and her sister -- who is much more like Dalton than Penny -- and how they work through similar issues at the same time.  I look forward to getting to know more of the bachelors better in future stories and how they adjust to women invading their terrority.

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy


Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers Lists for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her 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 stopping, 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 like 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.
