⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! 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 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 reas

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. There was one thing i loved about this book, Which is; "Nothing is coincidence". everything Bishop does is for a reason. And Of course, The author didn't offer any explanation whatsoever, Nada, Nothing. *SIGH*

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

Just popping in to say that I have no idea what I’ve gotten myself into, but I’m in love and there’s no turning back. I’m like a fish on a hook. I need to know how this ends.

Loved the mystery, intrigue, and over the top characters. This author really knows how to pull emotions from the reader. Gah! In. Love.

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.

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

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

-How can you be best friend with someone you've met the day before?
-How can she guess what she is based on what she's read? I miss some more clues to believe in it.

-Why ask her if she ever came here or knew something?

Oh, what the heck.. 5 stars!

Here is my official warning before anyone begins this series because I don't want anyone being misled. THIS IS NOT YA. I need to make that very, very clear. THIS IS DARK AND VERY SERIOUSLY MESSED UP. This story is twisted and NOT for those who are uncomfortable with their hard limits being challenged. I began questioning my morals and the kind of debauchery I like reading about.

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?

This book had 2-3 thinks that I didn’t like but apart from that, I liked it. I liked the story and the characters, even though sometimes they annoyed me (a lot).

I liked Tillie and Nate more than the own protagonists. 😫😂

A dark, twisted story. Love is not normal in this telling of who is who? Madison is a seventeen year old girl who moves to a small town with her rich dad. She is registered to attend a high school who is run by the rich. She is driven into a whirlwind of wtf’s. She was told her mother killed her husbands mistress and then turned a gun on herself. To make things worse her mother used Madison’s gun. Her father taught her all about gun safety. And how to shoot since she was young. Madison meets the ...more

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.

Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
