⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! The Silver Swan, book. Dark erotic suspense as jet-setting teenagers get caught in a conspiracy with sex, drugs, jealousy & lies!


Heiress & student Madison Maree Montgomery

…has moved cross-country to escape scandal.

She is surprised to meet her new stepbrother Nate.

And his entitled friends in the secret Elite Kings Club.

They are all hot-cold, sexy, jaded, brooding rich boys.

Bishop Vincent Hayes is particularly sinister & intense.

Add to that innuendos about the Elite Kings club.

I’m sitting here trying to figure out how to write this review. What can I tell you that will be just enough to peak your interest, but not enough to ruin the twists or the suspense, give you the wrong idea, or make me sound insane? I’m thinking the answer is probably not much. Yet, that’s what I have to do, so here goes nothing!

I won't go into extreme detail about what didn't work for me. I decided to read this because the blurb sounded interesting with promises of 'insane characters and an insane story', even though I don't really read 'dark' reads anymore. And this is mainly because it’s been rare for me to come across a dark story where the characters seem believable and the situations aren’t just absurd and/or convenient. And that is a big part of the reason

WHOA!!!! Fuckin wow!!!

Let's just say this book could be described as a well blended mixture of Penelope Douglas's Corrupt, Erin Watt's The Royals series and Tijan's Fallen Crest High brought onto a higher level of potency...

and I won't even try to go into re-telling the story, cause it would not do it justice, so I'm gonna borrow Amo's blurb, cause it simply says it ALL and yet reveals NOT ONE SINGLE THING you should NOT know beforehand...

Many people loved this book, So I'm going to skip the praise (you can read plenty of it elsewhere). i had high hopes for this one, The blurb was so damn good. Unfortunately, the whole story didn't work for me. The characters were mean, Super creepy and absurd. Oh and i forgate "HORNY ALL THE TIME". There was one thing i loved about this book, Which is; "Nothing is coincidence". everything Bishop does is for a reason.

When death approached,

Leaning her breast

Thus sung her first and

“That makes no sense.”
“You make no sense,” he responds, pushing of the door and walking towards me. He’s wearing a dark shirt, loose jeans and black boots. He stops directly in front of me, bringing both hands down to either sides of the arm rest on my chair, caging me in. Leaning down, his eyes go from my lips to my eyes and then back again. “You think because Bishop fucked you that you have a free pass?” My heart launches in my chest, surprise must

This review has me pulling my hair out because I have so much I want to say but so much that I can't say without ruining this story. I loved this book so hard and I easily became very invested in these characters. I don't think my heart stopped pounding once while I was reading it because everything just got so insane. I don't think I can even begin to describe the types of fucked up this book was because there's just too much I would need to explain. Not that I actually

This book was actually painful to try to get through. If I'm being completely honest, I wanted to DNF fairly early on but I didn't think I could write a fair review without finishing it so I forced myself to skim to the end. I know, I know... Its just a quirk of mine that doesn't allow me to quit.

I'm not even going to get into the plot because I just found it all too over the top ridiculous. There were elements in this book that reminded me of a few other books I've read before whether intentio

I'm adding another DNF to my shelf!
I tried really hard to finish this book but at 65% I'm quitting!
My biggest issue was that I hated Madi!!! Omg! That girl annoyed the living shit out of me! I know she's in high school but I can't help it. I didn't like her!
The other issue was the editing! Ugh! It was so bad and I'm not one to usually care about that but at one point I had to keep rereading because there was a name mix up.

Lol, after a lot of thought - okay, I won't lie; after a lot of sleep, I finally decided to go back and change the rating/stars from three stars to two. This is because I got through the book, and even though it did have potential, it still wasn't the best read out there. And I really had a problem with the lack of depth in the story/writing...

This book had so much potential. I liked the concept of the series, the Elite Kings Club and The Silver Swan, so it's obvious I ha

THIS WAS SOME GOOD SHIT!

My moral compas has to be fu*ked up just like this book becase there is no other explanation why I on earth could possibly like it. It's twisted, it's fu*ked up, you don't know who you can trust and what the hell is happening. It's addictive and you need to read further; I couldn't put the book down.

I need book two right now! Is it coincidence that the book two will come out the day I have birthday?

a crapload of these 5 star reviews are from people who bandwagon this author.

The cover is absolutely gorgeous. and that's basically the only good thing about this book.

It needs an editor. Badly. And there's a mid section that has formatting issues. This book was brought to my attention when this author "attacked" a blogger and made a huge spectacle when her book was compared to similar books. Her immature friends hopped on board and dared anyone to hate this book. to read it and then make compar

You know one of those books everyone loves (five stars and rave reviews) and you find yourself within the few people who seem to hate it?? this is one of those books. I was so looking forward to reading this book because Corrupt, Royals and the Fallen Crest Series are books that i loved and there are similarities with this book (from the blurb) but alas, that's where the similarities end. Here goes
1. All the characters in this book are immature.
2. I couldn't connect with any of the characters.

The blurb grabbed my attention in a big way. It checked *all* my boxes, how could it not with the author's warning about stomping on hard limits, being twisted, throwing out crazy warnings and all sorts of f**kery. Bring it!

Amo Jones is a new to me author and I was drawn to this book because of the synopsis and the beautiful cover. Silver Swan did have a “flavour” of another book I have read but the plot and style of writing bear no resemblance to one and other.

They are not the boys I suspected they were. They`re the kind of monsters you warn people about. Not naïve children, but adults. The kind who lie, cheat, manipulate, seduce, and kill, just to get what they want. They`re the kind you run from.

I really liked this twisted story. Besides the stunning cover and the intriguing plot, what added points to this story is the fact that the author wrote this about her book:

This book has everything I love. A bully, a private/ elite school, major angst and unknown, told only from the heroine's point of view, and tons of relationships that are building. One major complaint, that lowered it from a five star, to a four. Editing issues. I don't normally bother worrying about it, but the character herself needed editing. The very beginning character changed without a reason, and I believe that could've been fixed if the author had edited the book to clean up the personal ...more
