Illusion by J.S. Cooper Review + Giveaway


 Indie sensation and New York Times bestselling author of the Ex Games series and the Private Club series, J.S. Cooper introduces the Swept Away series—three new, dark and sexy romances about a woman marooned on a desert island with a mysterious stranger—but is he friend or foe?

The day started like every other day...

Bianca London finds herself kidnapped and locked up in a van with a strange man. Ten hours later, they’re dumped on a deserted island. Bianca has no idea what’s going on and her attraction to this stranger is the only thing keeping her fear at bay.

Jakob Bradley wants only to figure out why they’ve been left on the island and how they can get off. But as the days go by, he can’t ignore his growing fascination with Bianca.

In order to survive, Bianca and Jakob must figure out how they’re connected, but as they grow closer, secrets are revealed that may destroy everything they thought they knew about each other.

“I have you in the palm of my hands,” he whispered softly and leaned toward me.
“What do you mean by that?” I whispered back at him, my stomach jumping as his fingers brushed my wet hair away from my face.
“Nothing.” He shook his head. “I’m just saying, I could do what I wanted to you right now, but all I’m doing is saving you. I hope you’ll trust me after this.”
“Untie me and I’ll trust you.” I nodded, unblinking.
“Can I get a kiss as well?” His eyes sparkled as his lips came dangerously close to mine.
“What?” I closed my eyes and waited to feel his lips on mine.
“Open your eyes, Bianca.” He whispered against my lips. I could feel his breath gliding over my skin as I opened my eyes slowly. I swallowed hard as I stared up at him.

J.S. Cooper has done it again! I have been such an HUGE fan of J.S. Cooper since reading her series Forever Love. She has written another GREAT book that will knock you off your feet. She has this amazing ability to hook you and keep you reading until the end; where you are screaming because you need and want more! I absolutely LOVED this book! I am desperate for the next book in this series especially after the ending.  I want to know what happens next! This book will be a HUGE hit and I can guarantee it will be in the Top Ten Bestseller!! That being said, I rated Illusion FIVE LEAVES!!
My heart broke for Bianca London from the start. After losing her mother when she was younger in a car accident, her father is all she has left. Until he passes away leaving her all alone. Bianca's father struggled with the death of his wife. Before his passing he wrote Bianca a letter stating her mother's death may not have been an accident.
Bianca turns into her very own private investigator. As Bianca starts to find the truth about her mother's death, she has been getting the feeling that someone is following her.  She also begins to receives mysterious phone calls and messages.  After a night of meeting a friend for drinks, she finds herself drugged and kidnapped and wakes up in the back of a car with a man she has never meet. After they awake they find out they are on a deserted island.  
Jakob Bradley wants to know why he is on this deserted island with Bianca.  Jakob is officially on the swoon worthy book boyfriend list... no questions asked.  Wow! Bianca and Jakob start off with such an intense sexual chemistry.  The more time they spend together the stronger it becomes.  Bianca has her guard up to Jakob and doesn't fully trust him.  They are trying to find out how they are connected and both of them were chosen to be on the island together.  After a couple of days on the island, a new stranger makes an appearance out of the blue.  Steve, the stranger has Bianca questioning everything she knows. All she really wants is the truth to why she is on the island.  Bianca and Jakob finally make a connection to why they are there in the first place. They believe the company that Bianca has been investigating is why she is on the island. At the end of the book, you will be shocked! I kind of saw it coming and then I didn't. I was completely surprised by the ending and I cannot wait for the next book in this series!
Illusion was a heartfelt, emotional, amazing, captivating and unforgettable story that simply blew me away! For the couple of hours it took me to read this book, it completely consumed my thoughts! And even now after finishing this amazing book, I am craving more and wanting this next book now!
