Wow! This was a crazy ending to this suspenseful and erotic series. Jakob and Bianca are two characters that I have mixed reviews about. There are things they both have done that I haven't liked. They weren't my favorite characters ever but this book wrapped up the whole series so well I was really hoping for them to get a HEA. This series took me out of my comfort zone but I'm so glad I read it. There were twists and turns I never saw coming and the suspense was well worth it in the end. I

FINALLY, we get answers.

While the prologue may have your very worried, this last book in the series picks up where the last one left off, with Bianca watching Jakob and David on video. That revelation is then followed by a confrontation with Rosie and Steve. Yeah, this series gets stranger and more confusing as it goes. But I promise you, you will get answers.

Since I can't give you those answers, I'll give you a recap on some of the key characters:

Finally, we are given the answers to all of the questions we've had! Of course, Ms. Cooper keeps us on the edge of our seats right up until the very end! Little by little, the truth comes to light in this final book in the series. When all the cards are laid out on the table, the truth is far more complex than I could have ever imagined.

For so long now, Bianca has just wanted to know the truth...who can she trust and who is out to get her. In this final installment to the Swept Away series, she finally learns everything.

All I can say is wow...that is not what I was expecting at all. As with every other book in this series, the author kept me guessing and just when I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong.

From the crazy prologue to the last paragraph, this book will suck you in. It is not a standalone, you need to have read t

Highly entertaining conclusion to the Swept Away series! I've read all previous parts to the series (Illusion, Charade, Disillusioned, Masquerade) through NetGalley also. As a result, Resolution was one of my highest anticipated reads of the year. And it didn't disappoint!

Resolution is comprised of intrigue, mystery, suspense, and--last but not least--romance. There were definitely some surprises, some twists I didn't see coming. (Pretty sure I gasped aloud at one point!) J.S. Cooper has crafted

I have to preface this review by saying that I reviewed this without reading parts 1 and 2. Big mistake. You absolutely have to read the first parts of the triology to understand anything about this story.

I felt lost throughout most of the entire book. There is no lead in at all. I gathered what was going on by snippets of conversations and tried to follow who was who in the complex tangle of names and characters.

What I did come away with a was a tangled web of deception and suspense of who don

for fans of this series you won't be disappointed, I thought if worked it out halfway and I was wrong, I kept guessing along the way and drawing my own conclusions only to have them blown apart.
I was really happy with the ending I think Miss Cooper did a brilliant job with this series.

'Resolution' (Swept Away #3) by J.S. Cooper is a great read. This story finishes out the Swept Away Trilogy. WOW! J.S. Cooper has done it again. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. This story was full of passion, drama, suspense, twists and turns. This is an excellent finish to the Swept Away Trilogy. I think this was a perfect ending to the story for Bianca, Jakob, Blake, David, Rosie, Steve, and all the others. Highly recommend to all fans of romance and suspens ...more

book review: 5++++++(…) stars!!

From the first time I laid eyes on Swept Away series I kind of realized its greatness and saw how special it was/is. But I could never predicted that I would become such a junkie of Jacob and Bianca’s love.

With the first book, Illusion, I got my first incredible dose of this captivating love that did exactly what name of the series says: it Swept me Away!!!! And the in

I've been following this series since Illusion first came out, and after each cliffhanger that was delivered in both Illusion and Disillusioned, I've always been left going out of my damn mind. And when I was able to get my hands on an early copy of Resolution? Not even the end of the world could have made me put this book down. I had so many questions from the first two books in this series, and I've been dying for some answers, and boy did Resolution give me those answers and MORE! As soon as ...more

While I hate to say goodbye to Jakob and Bianca, I can deny that I was signing hallelujah to get the final book to this series. J.S. Cooper had me so twisted up in knots, I didn’t know which way was up! All of your questions will be answered and there are a couple of twists that were a surprise. *This is not a standalone, it is book 3 in the series.*
At the end of Disillusioned, we are left on a pretty big cliff hanger. I wanted to be so sure of Jakob, but J.S. Cooper was messing with

This story is like a big soap opera! There's a whole bunch of shady things going on. This is the finale of the Swept Away series, so everything comes to a conclusion in this book. I've only read the 1.5 & 2.5 novellas before reading this book, and reading those made me want to read the whole series, and I got this book first, so I went ahead and read this first. I do recommend starting from the very beginning because the books are all connected. Bianca and Jakob met because they were kidnapped a ...more

This book started out in a very confusing way to me, and that's when I noticed it was a part of a series. So I went back, read the previous books and then I jumped head first into this one, thinking I would have the answers I wanted and the great surprise that would be the secret ('introduced' to us in the first book).

Well... I didn't get exactly that, but this book was definitely easier to like that the previous books.

First things first.

Bianca and Jakob...
Their relationship developed from that

What an ending!!

*Received a copy via Netgalley for an honest review*

I was enthralled from the prologue and couldn't wait to read the entire thing. Miss Cooper has definitely outdone herself with this series, with keeping the surprises coming and keeping you guessing.

We finally get all the answers that we have been seeking. Is Rosie friend or foe? What about Jakob? Is he the good guy he has been making himself out to be? And what about who is after Bianca? We find out all this, and so much more,

Finally!!!! All of the questions from the first two books are answered. Well most of them anyway! The really important ones. JS Cooper had me scared for a bit. I was starting to think I wouldn't get to love Jakob. Bianca comes into herself and finally gets her truth she's been working so hard to find.

I just can't get over their chemistry and how it flows so well between them. Even though at times I thought

Brilliant Ending to a suspenseful and invigorating series!!!
Finally all our questions are answered! J.S. Cooper has become one of my favorite authors her work is exceptional and all her books are a must read, she has the ability to make you feel as if you are actually in the story itself.
Truths are revealed in a way that will drive you insane and keep you at the edge of your seat wishing you had the super power to read ahead just to find out what will happen next as soon as possible.

**I received this book from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books through NetGalley for an honest review.**

Bianca is a long way from the island and she’s still trying to find answers. Jakob is still questionable in the role he’s playing but they have a connection and she trusts her instincts when it comes to him and everything else.

This was probably the best in the series for me. I liked the past and present element of it even though it added way too many people for me to keep track of. I loved the s

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 ab

Resolution is the third and final book in the Swept Away series. I was so ready to read this book and I was not disappointed. All the questions are answered in this book. I loved getting all the backstory and seeing how everyone fit together. But be ready and stay on your toes. So much is not what you think or as it seems. There are so many twists and turns leaving you to question if Jakob and Bianca will ever find their way. I was shocked and amazed at what was revealed. I'm a big fan of romant ...more

I suggest that all books be read one after the other now that they all have been completed. There was some confusion in reading the last book because parts of the previous books were forgotten due to the length of time it took for the third book to reach the market. A good read otherwise.
