Release Blitz/Review ♥ Insatiable Bachelor by Ruth Cardello ♥

Title: Insatiable Bachelor
Series: Bachelor Tower #1
Author: Ruth Cardello
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

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

Siding with her would be career suicide.

Betraying her was never my intention.

Review by Diane

Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.  But more times than not, you can’t.  A lot of times you judge a person by where you see them and not who they really are.  Sometimes a person doesn’t really know who they are until someone or something shows them the possibilities of what they can truly be.  And finally, sometimes we don’t even know what we are missing until it is right in front of us, or in most cases, until it is taken away.  And that is what we have with Insatiable Bachelor by Ruth Cardello.

Dalton Croft is a man who has “life by the tail” or so he thinks.  He’s handsome and he knows it.  He’s worked hard to be successful in his business and he’s got the cockiness to prove it.  He’s a billionaire and he knows how to spend it.   And one of those expenditures is living in the Bachelor Tower where life is handed to you on a silver platter.  There’s a way of life in Bachelor Tower that doesn’t include women living there.  It doesn’t mean that they are not easy to come by, but Dalton has no need for the interruption to his perfect life that dating can cause.  One night with a nameless woman is enough for him.  He has no friends, they just complicate your life and make it messy.  And family, they just want something from you.  It’s better to be solitary and in control than the messiness of people in your life. 


Penny Fuller has lived a simpler life.  She’s funny, cute and simply refuses to look at her glass half empty.  She has roommates she loves, a father she adores, and a sister who is driven to be the best in the business world…..kind of like Dalton.  Penny has never been close to her sister, but secretly would like to be, so when her sister asks a favor of her, Penny is all in. 

Bachelor Tower is in for some changes…..namely a new owner who doesn’t necessarily agree with the current atmosphere, so Kylie Fuller is going to take up residence there to help make these changes.   However, pending business in China calls, so she asks her sister, Penny, to take her place and hold her apartment in Bachelor Tower by living there for her.  Guess who her next door neighbor is?…..Dalton Croft.
Now one would think that Penny is the lamb being lead into the lion’s den, but little do they know that Penny is not the lamb they think she is, but the lioness in lamb’s wool and we all know it’s the lioness that really runs the Pride.  Dalton is first drawn to Penny by lust only.  Another conquest to make.  But it’s her approach to life, and their sexual banter back and forth and her easiness to be around that draws him in, takes hold, and before he knows it, he doesn’t want to let go of her.  He’s on her side, fighting the growing crowd of “bachelors” that wants Penny out of Bachelor Tower, he just doesn’t know it yet.  And our Penny?  She is learning to be strong, to stand her ground and to not settle for anything less than what she deserves.  Together they are learning that what you see in a person may not necessarily be who they really are; and that possibly you can be more than who you are with the help of someone else.

Okay, right about now, I could go into a little Jane Austen and a somewhat comparison to Pride and Prejudice and that whole thing of making assumptions about a person without really getting to know them, minus of course the hot and steamy sex between our main characters, and the subterfuge of a growing crowd of immature and childish bachelors, but having said it, I think that’s all I need to say.  And I love Jane Austen (I mean who doesn’t???!!!) so anything that intertwines her principles is okay anytime with me.

So here’s the bottom line.  Insatiable Bachelor was a tantalizing read.  At first I wasn’t sure it would be “my kind of book.”  The chauvinist approach of the men in Bachelor Tower grated on my nerves.  I wanted to throw them all down the toilet.  But you know what?  As Dalton became a more real person and truly started to care for Penny, he started to grow on me and I started to care about him.  An author that can take a chauvinistic pig and make him a likable hero is a winner in my eyes.  The secondary characters of Kylie and Ben had wit and charm, and by the end of the book I was beginning to wonder about those two as well.  Guess I need another book (I think that is coming in Impossible Bachelor) to learn more about them.

Don’t let the beginning sway you from continuing to read.  Anytime I get to the point where I can’t put a book down till I get to the end, that is a good read in my opinion and that is what I had with Dalton and Penny and Insatiable Bachelor!

Author Bio

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

What Kindle
Reviewers write about her:

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

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."

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.
