ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 17, 2015

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?


REVIEW: DISILLUSIONED is the second full length installment in J.S.Cooper’s new adult, contemporary Swept Away romantic suspense trilogy focusing on Bianca London and Jakob Bradley. DISILLUSIONED begins immediately following the events of book one ILLUSION where Jakob and Bianca found themselves as ‘kidnapped castaways’ on a deserted, tropical island. As the storyline unfolded, Bianca begins to fall for Jakob but their return to reality reveals not everything or everyone is what or who they appear to be. DISILLUSIONED can NOT be read as a stand alone as it is part two of a three part trilogy where each storyline ends on a cliffhanger leading into the next installment.

Told from first person point of view (Bianca) the focus of the series follows Bianca as she tries to uncover the truth behind her mother’s death; her father’s connection to and subsequent departure from Bradley Inc; and the mysterious letters and notes adding more mystery and confusion to an already convoluted plotline.

DISILLUSIONED finds Bianca lost in a world of heartbreak, hurt and confusion. Mysterious texts, phone messages and notes lead Bianca on a journey where she will discover that no one can be trusted-not even herself because the man with whom she is falling in love quite possibly could be the man who will destroy her life. Along with Jakob, Bianca begins a search that reveals nothing is as it seemed; and everything is all a lie. Friends will become enemies; family will become strangers; the past will become a fantasy of someone else’s making.

J.S. Cooper pulls the reader into a storyline that is awash in betrayal, lies, manipulation and suspense. Trust is never earned; deceit is a part of everyday life. Plenty of partial information is revealed but in the end, we know very little about what happened and how it all went down. JS Cooper gives the reader just enough detail and background awareness that leaves you wondering where it all went wrong and how everybody is connected to one another. Clues and hints are interspersed throughout the storyline-if only our heroine was quicker on the uptake and made use of the information imparted along the way. I recognized a major twist in the story as it began to build in book one-everyone has a Judas in their life-let’s see how these relationships affect the truth. Revenge is the name of the game –a game where the reader has a front row seat.
