Following on the heels of Illusion, indie sensation and New York Times bestselling author J.S. Cooper brings us the second novel in the Swept Away series, a trilogy of dark and sexy romances about a woman marooned on a desert island with a sexy stranger—but is he friend or foe?
When Bianca and Jakob awake on a sandy shore in the middle of nowhere, their first thoughts are of survival. But as they explore their surroundings and try to discover who stranded them on the island, they can’t deny the electricity surging between them. Soon it’s more than just a campfire keeping them warm…
But just as Bianca is starting to trust Jakob, she uncovers a clue to their abduction—and he may know more than he’s letting on. Was Jakob just as surprised as she to find himself alone with her…or could the man she’s fallen for be her captor?
Bianca London doesn’t know whom to trust. Now she’s off the island, things are even more complicated than before. The only thing that hasn’t changed is her desire for the man that she knows as “Jakob.”
She discovers some painful truths about her family and everywhere she turns, everyone seems to have a motive to betray her. Jakob is her anchor in the storm, but is he a beautiful illusion as well?
“I want you to know that in a perfect world we’d be together and we’d be happy. That is what I wish we could have. I want it to be as simple as Bianca and Jakob, Jakob and Bianca – but it’s never going to be that way for us.”
Jakob thought that he knew why he was stranded on the island with Bianca. He wanted answers to questions that he was sure that only she could provide. What he finds is a passion unlike any other. But how can they have a future when what they have is built on a foundation of lies?
Whatever we found out together might break us apart forever, but it wasn’t either of our faults. We were innocent parties caught up in the web our parents had weaved. “I loved my father,” I said tenderly.
After I named Illusion as one of my favorite books of 2014 - I was desperate for the follow up. I wanted to love Disillusioned but it fell a bit short for me. Nothing is really resolved and it only made my mind swim with what was going on.
I am such a fan of J.S. Cooper and this won’t stop me from reading the remainder of the series. But if you’re looking for any answers, you may want to wait for the release of Resolution in July…
