ARC for Review
Indie sensation and New York Times bestselling author J.S. Cooper brings us the final novel in the Swept Away series, a trilogy of heart-pounding romances about a woman marooned on a desert island with a sexy stranger—but is he friend or foe?
When Bianca and Jakob first awoke on a sandy shore in the middle of nowhere, their thoughts were only concerned with survival. But as they explored their surroundings and tried to find out who left them stranded on the island, electricity surged between them. Soon after, Bianca uncovered clues to her abduction, but was left with even more unanswered questions, especially about Jakob’s true motives…
Now, Bianca just wants the truth. Nothing was as it seemed, especially with Jakob. As she discovers cross upon double cross, all she can trust is her instinct, her connection with him. So they decide to return to the island in hopes of finally learning the truth. Bianca and Jakob have been thrown together and torn apart by their secrets—but can she trust him enough to rescue her at last?
Lies are Lies and Nothing is As it Seems
Reading the end to a long favorite standing series is always bitter sweet. I can say with 100% certainty that Cooper does it right! In this installment the reader gets the same heart pounding page turning frenzied feelings that we are so accustomed to. I highly recommend this series for those looking to get lost in a steamy intriguing read full of twist and betrayal. This one is guaranteed to register all the feels on the Richter scale. I’m looking forward to what Cooper has planned. As I’ve mentioned before she has quickly become one of my favorite authors so I fully intend on following her work!
The Story, okay so the ending of the previous installment was crazy cliffhangery. The beginning of this one is no help! However the reader is quickly thrown into the past! Yep we get to the nuts and bolts of the whole thing. The story follows Bianca’s pov in the current time, and her father Nick when we are taken to the past…Get ready…
No. There is NO WAY anyone could get ready for what’s coming!
The things that are revealed are absolutely SHOCKING!!! Heart pounding unbelievably SHOCKING!! I cannot give away any spoilers just know that your mouth will hit the floor. In the most delightful way, Cooper shows us her cleaver card with the twists that are thrown the readers way!! Every character is meticulously tied together in a story that is full of backstabbing and the thirst for power and revenge. The level of casualties and destroyed lives is unbelievable….eeeeee!! Seriously pick up this series its scandalously delicious!
The Characters, Jakob and Bianca have been to h and back. Thankfully their love is only remotely challenged in this installment. Bianca has been deceived so much she has no idea who to trust. I can completely understand that! Poor girl. She makes a wise choice to follow her gut and heart. Jakob loves her and there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to give her everything he can. I loved their unified dynamic, these two are a delight when they are together. Get ready for a shocking shocker of a truth that comes out! Everyone’s cards are finally revealed and who is who is out. I cannot express how shocked I was lol I don’t want to hint too much for those smarty pants out there to take a guess but man o man it’s good and unexpected.
The END!!!! Gah!!! Okay so that shocking thing that is so unexpected yep its out…Bianca gets all of the answers she was searching for. Unfortunately along with said answers she also gets some very hurtful truths. Luckily everyone gets what they deserve. With so much betrayal and so many secrets it’s a wonder that there wasn’t more destruction. Do we get our HEA? Yep we sure do! Bianca and Jakob get the resolution they were after together. I absolutely recommend this series as it is one of my favorites!
5.0 Up and down, Truth is Out, No More Hiding or Denying, Love that Wasn't Meant to Be to an All Consuming Passionate Union Love Filled Stars!
