About Billionaire Vigilante by Cambria McGrath
I’m not like most billionaires. For one thing, I recently came back from the dead after having faked it for several years to smoke out my killers. I’ve got a more important mission than fucking women. Although that’s on the to do list too. After all, I came back from the dead to get the girl and save the world from one, corrupt corporate entity at a time. But business comes before pleasure. Or it should if I can resist the love of my life, Patty Parker, long enough to do my job. My name is Ryder Armstrong. Several years ago, my family died in an orchestrated terrorist attack. Everyone I loved except for my fiance died. I spent years learning information about The Six. They were a group of sinister CEOs who targeted my family to keep their dirty business dirty. They fucked up my life—-and now I’m back to fuck up theirs. Like the flame that tore through my city and life, I will burn them to the ground.
I’m not like most billionaires. For one thing, I recently came back from the dead after having faked it for several years. Everyone that I know, and love, thinks that I’m six feet under. Not that there’s a lot of those people left. Just my best friend, Logan Carter, and my ex-fiancé, Patty Parker. The love of my life.
But I’ve been trapped on an island, training and learning everything I can about The Six, an organization of corrupt CEO’s bent on world domination. Or destruction. Whatever suits their interests. It’s time for me to come back. Time to get revenge for my family, and my city.
Several years ago, I was supposed to have “died” in a terrorist attack orchestrated by these evil organizations to destroy me and my family. Now, The Six are plotting something terrible again and I’m the only one who can put an end to it.
I was taught the skills necessary to take down people like them by Patty’s Grandfather, my former butler with a mysterious past he hasn’t even admitted fully to me yet. He’s turned me into a fighting machine, so I’m returning home to my city to use the skills taught by him to save it.
Conrad City lost a lot in the bombings, and I’d be damned if I was going to let it lose anything else. If I was going to lose anything else. The Six had already taken so much from me.
I didn’t have the skills needed to take them on before. I didn’t know what lurked in the shadows of my home. I’d been sheltered by a privileged upbringing. Now, I had walked through fire and survived. It was The Six’s turn to burn this time. And I’d do whatever necessary to burn them.
Even if it meant burning myself and my family legacy down with them.
My favorite quote from Billionaire Vigilante is:
Her mouth went dry. “You’re scaring me.”
“Good,” he said with a slight smile, “you should be. The world as you’re about to see it is an absolutely terrifying one.”
