Disillusioned (Swept Away, #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: March 17th 2015

Publisher: Gallery Books

Following on the heels of Illusion, indie sensation and New York Timesbestselling 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?

My Opinion

I really enjoyed Illusion when I received an ARC off NetGalley so I was excited to see the sequel go up.

Disillusioned was just like the first. The web of lies and secrets gets even more tangled and the author keeps throwing things at you to try and stop you figuring things out. I will admit that there is a lot of information in this book and it wasn't all that clear at times. It did have me skimming back to make sure I'd read certain sections properly, but in the end I think it worked.

I enjoyed reading about the characters and how they grew together. I wouldn't say they are a couple you can fall in love with as there is always suspicion surrounding them. However, they keep you on the edge of your seat and I like that there's doubt created. You're never really sure of their motives.

Whilst certain things were obvious, and others bent reality slightly too much for me to believe in, I think the author crafted the plot well. I still have no idea what the whole picture is or what's going on, but it revealed enough information to give hints. Sometimes it did feel like it was going around in circles, but it's intriguing.

Overall it was a good follow up. I knew the author would end it on a major cliff hanger and even though I was expecting it I still hated it. I wish I could find out what was going on now rather than having to wait until summer.
