This being the second in the series, we should get a lot of answers to our questions from book 1, right? Think again. I'm more lost than ever. If you love suspese like I do, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

So what can I tell you about this book? . . . . . . . . . . NOTHING!

Ok, maybe that's not entirely true, but to avoid spoilers, I can't tell you much about the plot, other than Bianca arrives back in New York and is more determined than ever to find out answers about Bradley, Inc. and her fa
Still Seeking Answers

Much like the first book in this series, 'Disillusioned' will leave you with 2 new questions for every 1 question that is answered. Reading this book I felt like a hamster on a wheel, always pushing forward, but never getting anywhere. Some details are revealed, but the person behind all of the threats still manages to evade discovery.

I usually love a suspenseful, mysterious story. However, the back and forth between Jakob and Bianca became tedious. How many times can he lie

I'm really enjoying this series. This is book 2 and it was great. This book was definitely filled with tons of suspense. I was on edge almost the entire book! I am left with more questions in this book than I think I was after I finished book 1. One thing I do know is I love the chemistry between Bianca and Jakob and I cannot stand David! But everything I am unsure of and very confused. I need book 3 immediately! I need answers!!! Great suspenseful read! ...more

This book was so suspenseful and after reading it I have no idea what is going on in this series!?!?! Just when I thought I had things figured out, it takes a twist and I have no idea what is going to happen. Who can Bianca trust? I just don't know. I really am enjoying this story. I don't read a lot of suspenseful romances but I've found myself completely entranced with this series.

Honestly, I'm not sure how to rate the books I've read these days included Disillusioned. I was happy to see I've been approved to read and review this book because I wanted more of this story and hopefully we would get answers. What we have here, is more mystery and at the end you just end up with some answers and even more questions. I want to get to the end to see the main characters finally finding out what has been really going on.

Wow! What an amazing follow up to Illusion! After reading Illusion and Charade, I had to jump into Disillusioned and get swept away with what was going on in Bianca and Jakob's story.

If you thought Illusion was full of twists and turns, hold on to your seat, because Disillusioned is even a crazier ride full of so many secrets, lies, and more twists and turns. I now no longer have any idea who is good, who is bad, and why all of this is happening to Bianca! I was happy to see that one of the peop

3.5 "So what is going on exactly?" Stars

Let me tell you I was really looking forward to this book from Cooper. The first book had left me reeling. It was really great and though I was really confused by the lying and secrets, I was totally intrigued. After this book, I am totally frustrated. This is a book that really should be read after the first book, Illusion. The novella released between books one and two offers a bit more insight to the back story but isn't essential to this story.

Ugh. I'm so annoyed. I read this whole book forcing myself to finish it and I had no plans to read the next book when the last page left me interested and wanting to know what the hell was going on.

Now I have to read the third one to find out and I know it's going to be pure torture.


Damn my curiosity.

Book one Illusion was okay. It was boring on some parts but the mystery kept me reading till the end. And I loved Jakob.

With Disillusioned we still get no answers, just a few minor revelati

This book continues from Illusion. It is such a good suspenseful story. It has me on the edge of my seat. I still don't know who can be trusted and who are the bad guys. I am going to anxiously be awaiting the next book in this series to find out what is in store for Bianca.

Just when I think I have it figured out there is another curve ball. I definitely recommend this book.

Disillusioned is the continuation of the delightfully intriguing and deliciously suspense story that was started in Illusion. We walk a little further down the rabbit hole and discover that nothing is as it seems. Just when things start to become clear is about the time when the details become hazy and get lost in a swirling hurricane of confusion and lies. The most important thing to remember is that while your heart may seem treacherous, it could actually be your saving grace. The mind can be ...more

I loved that the author moved slightly out her comfort zone when she released "Illusion". I loved the book and couldn't wait until Disillusioned was released.

Well! Well! Well! I don’t know what to believe. I just finished reading Disillusioned and immediately shouted out “what the fuck!” No seriously, the suspense got to me. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Who was involved? Who could Bianca trust? Were her friends her foes? And her foes her friends? This game of cat and mouse has me so confused and lost. I have my suspicions but I need the third book, Resolution, to come out ASAP to clear everything up for me.

Put your seatbelt on. This is a crazy freaking ride! Everything you think you know from Illusion? Well, you’re probably wrong! Disillusioned picks up right where Illusion let off and just continues to weave a complex mystery that will have your mind grasping at straws, trying to figure out what the hell is really going on.
Jakob is a mystery all by himself, but he’s definitely a delicious one. He seems to have fallen for Bianca, hard, and he has the perfect mixture of love sick puppy and hot alph

3.5 Mind-numbing Stars...

My thoughts after reading this book?

Admittedly, I did not read the first book in this series, but I did read the prequel novella so I had a tiny gist of the premise...

This book apparently picks up after book one where Bianca and Jakob are rescued from the tropical island. Here I already got lost because I did not know who Jakob was, still stuck on what happened with David...

And soon, Bianca is questioning whether Jakob Bradley is in fact the mysterious and powerful Mat

I really enjoyed Illusion when I received an ARC off NetGalley so I was excited to see the sequel go up.

Disillusioned was just like the first. The web of lies and secrets gets even more tangled and the author keeps throwing things at you to try and stop you figuring things out. I will admit that there is a lot of information in this book and it wasn't all that clear at times. It did have me skimming back to make sure I'd read certain sections properly, but in the end I think it worked.

Disillusioned by JS Cooper is the continuation of Bianca and Jakob's story and it's just as involved and complex as the first. Bianca is off the island and back in New York trying to find out more about her mother's accident and Bradley, Inc. There is no one she can trust.

There are so many secrets and lies going on in this book that trying to cipher all the information given throughout the novel seemed like a Herculean feat. My mind is still reeling, no closer to figuring out what's going on.

I need the next book NOW!!!

Disillusioned starts where Illusion ended, but I thought Disillusioned was a lot better than the first book.

Disillusioned starts off by Bianca and Jakob being rescued and Bianca learned that Jakob isn’t who he has claimed to be. This book had so many twists and turns and I still have no idea who to trust, who to root for or more important who Bianca should be turning to for help and answers. Just when it seems like Bianca is figuring things out with Jakob something bi

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Disillusioned is book #2 in the Swept Away Series by J.S. Cooper. I will say that you do need to read this series in order. Once I started reading book 2, I could not put it down. I was able to read this book over a period of an afternoon/evening, because I could not put it down. Once you start it has you hooked with every twist and turn. Who does Bianca trust, the man she falls for, the man she scammed, or the best friend she has ...more

Received from NetGalley for a honest review. I am so confused..... I really am trying to get a rhythm to this story. I read Illusion first and was hoping that this book would be a little forth-coming but if it wasn't for the cliffhanger at the end, I'm not sure I would keep going with the third book. I like the idea behind the plot but at times the story just doesn't flow together like I think it should. I think I like Jakob and Bianca. The story is written to keep you guessing who is trustworth ...more

Oh my. This is the second book in the series and it picks up right where the first book left off. The crazy journey you begin with illusion continues and intensifies with this one. And yet another cliffhanger ending.

'Disillusioned'(Swept Away Book 2) by J.S. Cooper is a great read. This book picks up the story where 'Illusion' left off. I loved getting to read more about Bianca and Jakob. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next. Wow! I didn't see that ending coming! I can not wait to see where the story goes next in book 3 'Resolution'.
