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 b

The hero is one of the biggest a-hole and b@st@rd I have ever seen.
He is forever horny. He hates the heroine staying in the fcking bachelor building he stays in but he is also lusting her. He is downright rude to the heroine in the first meeting. And also when she mentions she used to stay with two other girls in a studio apartment he is all horny because he is suddenly thinking about what girls do together when they stay in such tight quarters. Ugh...
Sorry this hero should just fck off and mind

I was a little hesitant to read this one, from the description i thought "oh here we go, another manwhore to hate" but i'm so glad i took the risk, it was so worth it.
It was nothing like i expected.
Yes, the hero was a manwhore but it all changes when he meets the h, there is no OW drama, he does talk about how he used to have each night a different woman in his bed but that all stop once he meets the h, and this alone kept me going.
The story was really interesting, with more interesting characte

Insatiable Bachelor is a read you really need to suspend reality for. The premise is a bit shocking- an entire apartment building today that is exclusively for men? How the heck does that work?! You get that explanation and more.

Dalton is shocked to see a woman on her way up to apartment of her own- and not one of his neighbors bedrooms. Penny really shines from the first moment she is on the page. I loved her strength and wit. She can really hold her own with the overpowering Dalton. She refus

Insatiable Bachelor (Bachelor Tower Series, Book 1) by Ruth Cardello  

Life is not a restaurant, not everything goes your way. The residents of Bachelor Tower are about to get schooled in the ways of the world. Beginning with the hunky Dalton. Insatiable Bachelor turns sexism on it's head while two-stepping between edgy and flirtatious. Penny finds more than she bargained for when a family favor lands her in a ton of hot water. What begins as a favor becomes a tempting battle of wills between an

A couple of years ago, when I first started to dip into romance, I picked up Ruth Cardello’s Maid for the Billionaire. It was an enjoyable enough read, one that left me willing to try more of the author’s work in the future. Although I have both Come Away with Me and Always Mine sitting on my Kindle, I have not worked around to reading them. I found other romance authors I was more interested in reading. I think, mostly, it was just a case of easing myself into the genre – had I picked up Maid f ...more

Looking for a fun, flirty romance with a male lead who's life takes a full 180 when he meets his match? Look no further than Insatiable Bachelor.

Dalton is perfectly happy in his stable, perfect world. He's a resident of the Bachelor Tower where women are welcome to come warm his bed but not stay the night. He has concierge services at his finger tips, anything and everything he wants and needs is just a call away. Life is fabulous. Predictable. Until Penny moves in next door.

Insatiable Bachelor was a good book even if it made say a tiny wtf with everything that went down in the end. Things were a little bit overdramatic and that wasn't needed if you ask me. I wanted something else to used as an excuse to get Dalton and Penny back together. What I liked about the part close to the end was the way the characters worked together to make sure that the apartment would continue to belong to Penny's sister. I really hope to see Penny's sister and Ben as the main characters ...more

What an amazing book. Ruth has done it again with Insatiable bachelor. Dalton is everything you love to hate. He is arrogant, cocky, and loves his life just they way it is. What happens when Penny moves in and disrupts his life. Penny is my hero for putting up with everything. Dalton was hard to love at first. Sparks fly and sides are chosen. Who will be left standing.

I love Ruth Cardello but this book just wasn't for me. The quick love between two polar opposites was a little over the top. The whole concept of a bachelor's building with bunch of rich asshole men who degrade women repeatedly just didn't sit well with me. I am not continuing with this series but Cardello will always be my go to author.

Though this is a part of her Bachelor Tower Series from the start, Ruth Cardello held my interest in her latest stand alone story Insatiable Bachelor. It is filled with love, laughter and memorable characters. I laughed out loud and fell in love with not only Dalton and Penny, but the amazing secondary characters as well.

Dalton has worked hard to build the life he has. He works hard and plays even harder. He is they type of guy who keeps others at bay, as he reaches his success. He owes no one a

Insatiable Bachelor is the first book in the Bachelor Tower Series, and I am loving it so far. The idea of a lush apartment complex only meant for highly successful/rich men? This place is insane and super intriguing. I can't wait to read more from the series.

Dalton is your classic playboy who has clearly put up the biggest wall of defense you can imagine. All he cares about is his business being successful and the luxuries the Bachelor Tower can provide. Until Penny shows up in the lobby. Watch

Author Ruth Cardello turns up the heat in this wonderfully entertaining book. As she kicks off a fun new series featuring the occupants of the Bachelor Tower we get to meet some great characters that should give us quite a few fun stories in the future. In this one Dalton and Penny are fantastic characters and I love how their relationship was developed. It's a slow easy build with lots of witty banter and back and forth between them. This made for a very enjoyable read.

Insatiable Bachelor is the best slow burn there is! Flirting and sexual tension so high it just fans off the pages! I need me a Dalton! Sexy bachelor who loves his ways. He sees not one thing wrong with living in Bachelor Tower where only men live and women aren't allowed in except for a quick romp. He enjoys working constantly and playing on the weekends. Then enters beautiful Penny to shaken things up a bit. She's sassy, happy go lucky, and possibly the most gullible sounding person ever. Yet ...more

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

I was instantly curious about this book because of the idea of a WHOLE building designed for men. But as its explained I understood it a bit. It was fascinated and when Penny enters the picture, more specifically an apartment in the building, the men of this tower finally get reality smacked in their faces.

This was a sexy, fun, wonderful read that I found entertaining. It felt different but amusing and sparks zip and zap strongly between Dalton and Penny. And s

I really liked this story. The concept of the Bachelor Tower apartments, and all the perks to living there, was unique and a lot of fun to read about. Dalton was not only an insatiable bachelor, but he was insufferable too. He was the type of guy that you have a hard time liking at first. His arrogance and elitist attitude made me want to punch him many times. Luckily, as the story progresses, he changes and grows into a new man. Penny was a delight. The exact opposite of Dalton's workaholic, al ...more

Insatiable Bachelor by Ruth Cardello is the first book in the Bachelor Tower Series. The book is a full length, stand alone, written in a dual POV.
Meet Dalton Croft, hes a entrepreneur, works hard, plays harder and loves his life just like it is. And that includes to reside in a all-male bachelors building with unlimited access to everything he can think of. He pities couples for their relationships and lives his life to the fullest.
That quickly changes when a woman - what a scandal - moves into

So I read this book. It's a brand new series by Ruth Cardello and I am not sure how I feel about it. Oh I know I LOVED IT. I don't know how she does it. I mean her stories are good. But with each of her books they get better and better and Insatiable Bachelor is no different. I don't even know the definition of the word sleep cause with this book I got nothing. Ruth my boss hates you for how tired I was at work. Insatiable Bachelor is going to be one of the few books that I can re-read and never ...more

Written in the first person with dual point of view (bravo Ruth – you did an excellent job!), this is the story of Penny and Dalton. Dalton living in an all-male apartment building and sweet, innocent Penny is laying claim on her sisters’ apartment in the Bachelors Tower until she returns from China. Those living in the apartment building have declared war and try to drive Penny out. While Dalton agrees Penny needs to go, he finds himself helping her. When it backfires, the sparks really begin. ...more

This is different writing than Ruth usually does but it worked so dang well!!! I don't think I will ever read a book by her that I don't totally love!!Dalton and Penny couldn't be any more different in everything they are. She has the best outlook on life and he has the absolute worst. But somehow they work when theu are together. I love how this book is written!! Made me laugh so many times. I can't wait to read the continuation of this series.

A different view from Ms Cardello, but.......Dalton and Pennys story wouldn't let me put it down. No spoilers, but wow, Penny is adorable, Dalton is in need of a Penny to show him life, love and what he's missing. Dalton likes to be in charge so is definitely not looking for more than a romp, but Penny is such a curve ball he is intrigued. The whole building complication is something he's already decided isn't his fight but he cannot sit back when things take a turn...... a definite must read, d ...more

Insatiable Bachelor is Ruth Cardello's newest creation. It is a wonderful beginning to her new series. Dalton and Penny are my new favorite couple. The plot is the most intriguing one that Ruth has come up with, I think she has outdone herself this time. Thank you, Ruth Cardello:)

An Advanced Reader Copy was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

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 m

I loved Ruth's first book written in first person, present tense. Dalton is the most arrogant but lovable jerk and seeing him figure his life out with Penny's help made for a delightful read. There is nothing better than an asshole becoming an endearing nice guy. Good job, Ruthie!

Sizzling!! Dalton is rich, self-centered and feels entitled to everything he has. Penny is easy going, fun loving and very optimistic about life. Dalton & Penny are TOTAL opposites but when they together the sparks fly!!

This story is written from both the hero and heroin's point of view and I think it was the perfect way to tell this story. The banter between Dalton and Penny was fun and enlightening and I loved it!

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 ...more

Meet the ever handsome Dalton Croft.

Dalton always knew that women are a part of the perk of any bachelor’s lifestyle. Dalton works so hard. So according to him that he deserves to play harder. I get to live the playboy lifestyle. Unfortunately this time I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs. I’ve witnessed other men go weak at the knees and fail when they get reeled in by a

I had started reading INSATIABLE BACHELOR long ago but had put it aside after the first chapter because, frankly, I hated Dalton, the hero (INSUFFERABLE BACHELOR could have been the title I thought at the time). I couldn't understand why the author (who has long been a must-read for me) had created such an unlikable hero.

Which just goes to show how incredibly talented Ruth Cardello is, because when I picked this book up again yesterday, determined to finish it (because I've never not f
