They are all hot-cold, sexy, jaded, brooding rich boys. Add to that innuendos about the Elite Kings club. Rumors of a big conspiracy.
Is her life in danger? Madi quickly goes from the new girl to the in-crowd. This is dark erotica as these teenagers get it on; no expense spared, nothing off-limits. Read this when you are in the mood to be swept off your feet by an OTT whirlwind tale featuring brooding larger-than-life alpha BOY heroes and one un lucky girl caught between them all. Story ends as cryptically as it started leading right to book 2, The Broken Puppet for the continuation of their story. View all comments. Just going to post this review and then run and hide.
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 that is a big part of the reason Just going to post this review and then run and hide. I did like the mystery and intrigue. The premise had potential, but for ME, the execution was way off. It was repetitive, had a lot of grammatical errors, and the pacing just felt off.
The storyline was all over the place. In some places there was just a huge info dump with a lot of unnecessary details and filler. And then there were times where I could have used more background information or more detail. There were also things the characters thought or said that made absolutely no sense and contradicted something that was previously stated. The characters were way too absurd and immature. I realize these are high school students, but that doesn't mean they need to be written in such an over the top manner. Especially when you're trying to appeal to an adult crowd.
I also couldn't connect with any of them. View all 42 comments. This is one of those stories. What can I tell you that will be just enough to peak your interest, but not enough to ruin the twists or the suspense, give you the wrong idea, or make me sound insane? Madi hoped that moving to a new city would let her leave behind the whispers and rumors surrounding her family.
When your mother finds out your father is cheating on her and murders the homewrecker with YOUR gun before killing herself, people tend to talk. Trying to blend in like she wants to turns out to be pretty impossible. She does manage to make one good friend, Tatum, at school which is more than she can usually say for herself. Tatum warns her to be careful when she captures the attention of a group of 10 hot as hell guys that are shrouded in mystery.
According to the rumor mill, they supposedly belong to a secret club of some sort called, The Elite Kings Club. No one knows for sure what it is just that it has something to do with their lineage. Not only does she draw the eye of their gorgeous leader, Bishop, but one of the guys, Nate, is actually her new stepbrother. At first, Madi thinks the rumors are just that; however, the more time she spends with the boys, the more she starts to think there is some truth to all the rumors. Everything is a secret, they keep referring to being part of a game, and do all sorts of other strange things that would make anyone question what the hell was going on.
There are so many questions she wants answers to. There are so many questions YOU will want answers to. What ever happened to Khales? Why does Brantley show such animosity towards her even though they just met? What part of their life is this game they keep talking about, and what is real? What did I think of The Silver Swan? Overall, it is a unique, intriguing, and captivating read. I was constantly questioning everything and waiting for the other shoe to drop. I love books that keep me guessing, and this one definitely did that.

I also love asshole alphas, and Bishop is a delicious one. Did I have any issues with it? Would I recommend it? If you like messed up stories full of mystery, asshole alphas, and suspense, with some hot sex thrown in for good measure, this one is for you. ARC generously provided for an honest review.

Damn, I just loved the angsty, anticipating feeling and a constant suspense I got from the story.. Madison - damn, I loved her.

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". And Of course, The author didn't offer any explanation whatsoever, Nada, Nothing. View all 19 comments. Mar 06, Natalie The Biblioholic rated it it was amazing Shelves: I've just changed my review to 5 stars! Because my brain is still going on about this book.
What the heck did I just read??? Even though I thought I had a pretty good idea of what to expect, I now realize I didn't know shit!! I don't care what the author said, I'm not allowing my children or any other teenage children I know read this. Not til they're older. It was a story about 17 year olds who acted and behaved way beyond their years. I did some crazy shit when I was , but these kids took it to a whole other level of cray. Was it because of the money? Who the heck knows, but it made for a truly captivating read. Madison and her father have relocated and once again she's the new girl at school.
But her past has followed her all the way to The Hamptons. She luckily finds a fast friend in Tatum, but catches the eyes of The Elite Kings Club, a group of bad boys at the school, one of which is her new step-brother. The leader of the pack, Bishop, can't seem to leave her alone and she finds herself equally obsessed with him.
And so the games begin. Madison was a little wannabe badass but I loved her snark and her attitude. However, she was a touch too naive when I consider how bright she seemed in many areas of her life. And she was gullible which made for some interesting times of me laughing at her no, not with her from the sidelines. It was Bishop who really kept me reading. He snagged me, hook, line and sinker. Despite his secrecy, his meanness, his crudeness and his utter disregard for anyone's feelings, I wanted more of him.
Every time he did something to screw with Madison, I was busy trying I'm still trying to figure out his motives. So here I am I still don't even know what this story was about. March 7, Genre: Heroine - 1st person Steam: View all 40 comments. Jul 17, Bibi rated it did not like it.
The Silver Swan (song)
View all 10 comments. For more info on this challenge, click here. I know I do. But there are also some bloggers out there whose tastes are so antithetical to mine that if I see that they have given a book five stars, it automatically goes on my internal do-not-buy list.
Sometimes I like dark smutty stories, if they're dark and smutty enough. But they have to be well-written and they have to be interesting. The main character, Madi, is a "troubled" rich girl whose mother killed her husband's mistress before killing herself with one of Madi's own guns Madi's a gun nut. As a fresh start, her father has enrolled her in a rich kid's school in a rich kid area, in the hope that such richy richness will magically cure her psychological problems, because I guess therapy is just another word for Aston Martin.
She also meets ten Edwards, only these Edwards are more like his Christian Grey incarnation, if Christian Grey was a sleazy seventeen-year-old who divides his free time between lurking outside expensive nightclubs and beating off. All of them are immediately intrigued by her, even though their attention cannot be captured by any SINGLE girl, such is the immense power of their collective testosterone.
The Kings waste no time in stalking Madi, sexually harassing Madi, threatening Madi with rape, with bodily harm, and even with murder. They keep making all of these vague threats about how she will die soon, or that there is a secret about her that they cannot share thanks for the helpful info, guys. The most unstable Christian Grey of them all, Bishop, even tells her that he thinks she has a sexy spine and wants to break it, and this is of course after he threatens to disembowel her right before they have sex - yet again.
I suppose if you find the relationship between Harley Quinn and the Joker healthy, you would see no problem with this, and it seems like Madi does, so yay for her, I guess? As a reader of bodice rippers, I am not a stranger to OTT smut and wtfery, and when it is done well I will even tolerate it in modern erotica. The obsession with food in this book is particularly curious, with Madi constantly telling us what she wants to eat or is currently eating, and exactly how much progress she is making as she continues to eat or obtain this food in question, whether it's a sandwich, an apple, Krispey Kremes, or enough Burger King to "feed half a state.
The disappointing climax was the cherry on this disappointment sundae. I'm sorry that I was not more impressed with this book, because the premise really did sound interesting, but so many other authors have run with the "rich kids hiding a deadly secret" premise and done it one better, and honestly, I'd rather just watch Hana Yori Dango , because as far as I'm concerned, that story is the OG.

Leaning down, his eyes go from my lips to my eyes and then back again. You thought he actually wanted to fuck you? I hold my breath. That was all part of the plan.

My dad will not be impressed with my not carrying, and my mom will no doubt be screaming at me from the other side about how these are the reasons why she and my dad educated me so much on firearms.
I shuffle up in my seat. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. Ten dark hoodies covering their faces. I scream, my hands coming up to shield my face just as an arm slips inside and pops up the lock. A deep menacing chuckle breathes over the back of my neck just as a leather gloved hand wraps around my mouth and pulls me out of the car.

Mar 15, Elle rated it it was ok Shelves: My first read from Amo Jones and I still didn't understand about it. I really need "high-level" imagination for this story. I need to divided between reality and fantasy because it was confusing AF.
Based on the blurb: Her mother kill herself with Madison's gun. Apparently this family has hunting for a hobby. Madison also a self-proclaimed as a person who didn't like interact but the truth was far from it. Out of nowhere girl, an elite fuckboi gang, and female sidekick. Except, Madison is super rich. Her father married for the third times and she has a step-brother, Nate whose also from the club. Back to the blurb: Also her step-brother, Nate is one of the club member. Apparently, the leader, Bishop owns the school. For "introvert" girl, Madison is super noisy. She has big mouth and a bit judgmental also slut shamming.
There is a different between really a SLUT and sexually active. The first time she saw Bishop, she's instantly wet. They're also harassed her many times. Groped her and stuff. And then, call it as a game? She also given pet name by them, Kitty.

This Bishop guy is super creepy. He always stare at her like Edward Cullen to Bella if you watch Twilight. He's grumpy, brooding and all the shit. Suddenly, he decided to 'play' with Madison. Bishop love to order her around and Madison like a puppy always follow him. Madison spread her legs easily for Bishop. And after that, she became naive. She wants his attention but Bishop claimed to use her for sex. You know the rest. FYI, it happened again. Multiple times in the future.
I didn't feel their chemistry. There are a lot of sex in this story No orgy, thanks. Madison with this guy, Tatum with that guy, etc. What's disgust me about her, she tongue-kissed her step brother, Nate who fucked both her friends. Sorry, I'm not the type who hop around with other guys. Too slutty while she hope for Bishop will 'care' about her. Also Nate and Madison started to bitching with their non-sense feeling. All they did until the end only for sex and bully-slash-almost rape. Some of them pointed out how rough the sex will be. With choking and bruising.
The plot has so many loose ends. Like I said, there is no purpose except they're just fooling around and scaring Madison. However, the ending is the one bothered me the most. View all 28 comments. Mar 23, V. I'm quoting my friends: Steffi, Liana and Elle. I asked them for safety info: If you're curious, I would wait until the sequel is out and reviewed before investing the effort. So, he's still fooling around with other girls. But only grope and such. I don't remember if he Update March 26th. I don't remember if he kiss the other girls. I need more info on safety: Does anyone know whether: For the purpose of my reviews I consider a heroe is a cheater when he kisses, makes out, looks another woman naked or tries to fuck OW after the couple gets together.
If it happens before that, I have no problem and I consider it a safe-with exceptions read. I pair the couple together after they kiss for the first time even if they don't start dating until later.

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 intentional or not and, frankly, if you're going to jump on a bandwagon, you really need to SELL IT. I was not sold. I was so far from sold. I couldn't connect with any of these characters And there's a million or so to choose from. The writing felt amateur and the dialogue was so unnatural and redundant.
This book could have used some serious editing, but even with that, the execution of this story was just I'm not sure if this is this author's debut or not, maybe they just haven't quite found their stride, but the writing was not polished, the style was just all over the place.

I'm a reader that needs believability, even in my fiction, and there was nothing natural or believable about any of the interactions these characters had with each other. I can bite the bullet and take a book for what it is when it starts to head into crazytown, but an author needs to sell it. Pull me in somehow, connect me with a character, intrigue me with some element of the plot. There was just nothing here. There's no character development, no depth. There's just a lot of ridiculous arguments between even more ridiculous characters, a lot of throwing everything against the wall to see what would stick, a lot of unnecessary details and an exorbitant number of side characters that served no real purpose other than to maybe distract the reader from the fact that there's nothing compelling about this book.
I was over it before of even began. View all 3 comments. Mar 05, Sabrina rated it really liked it Shelves: 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.
