Riddle me this…
“I am neither dead, nor alive, and I’m not something little Madison can hide.
But you will be dead, by the time this is done…
the timer starts now, and the games have just begun…”

Madison Montgomery comes from money and power, but when someone close to her commits the ultimate crime, Madison must live with her tainted name for the rest of her life. When she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, the private school her father has swept her into in The Hamptons, she hopes for a fresh start. What she wasn’t hoping for was the pack of bad boys who run the school; ten, to be exact. When Madison gains the attention of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, a whole new world that she didn’t think existed is exposed to her. A whole world that starts and ends with The Elite Kings Club and these boys, are about to flip her world upside down. Secrets are overflowing and family lies are about to be exposed. Is there more to Madison Montgomery than even she knows?

About this book:
I need to admit something right now. The Silver Swan is f*cked. It might be the most insane story I’ve ever written with equally insane characters. Who knew? You know, when I started this book, it was supposed to be YA. I wanted to write a book that my sisters could read. A book that won’t have people look at my mum like “damn… what sort of messed up shit happened to your kid?”. The angst, the assholeness, the games, the f**kery, the WHAT THE F**KING F**K ARE YOU DOING???!!!…
I cannot even…. anyway, this is a warning (and the only one I’ll give you). It’s crazy. I don’t compare my work to my others, but this book is f**ked. It will most likely stomp all the f**k over people’s hard limits (and not give a sh*t while it’s doing it) and will make you second guess all the morals you thought you had.
This most definitely is not looking like a love story right now… more like a….. I don’t even….*shakes head* anyway, I apologise now. You asked for it……….


Amo Jones warns you before you even start this book that it’s crazy and dark and touches on some really screwed up subject matter.  However, never one to head a warning, I jumped right in anyways and holy hell I can’t get over what I read.  I’m pretty sure I messaged April about 100 times with different variations of WTF…OMG…THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN.  I just couldn’t even begin to wrap my brain around what I had just read.

After the death of her mother, Madison Montgomery moves across the country to live with her dad and his new wife in the Hamptons.  Starting at a new school is never easy, but this school is ruled by the Elite Kings, and Madison can’t help but be a little intrigued by the dark and mystery guys that she finds both intimidating and sexy as hell.  Shortly after moving into her new home, she meets her stepbrother Nate, and that’s when things start to get really screwed up.  Nate is a member of the Elite Kings, and once they come into the story, all hell breaks loose.  At this point, all I could do was buckle my seat belt and go along for the ride because it was going to be F*CKING CRAZY!!

Madison soon discovers that that secrets and rumors swirl around the Elite Kings, especially their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes.  Bishop is honestly a walking cloud of darkness, and their isn’t a single redeemable thing about his character, but despite all of this, I absolutely fell in love with him.  As Madison falls deeper into the circle of the Kings, she’s continually drawn to Bishop, even as more and more happens that should push her away.

The Silver Swan is a riddle, just waiting for the reader to jump in.  Be prepared for questions abound because you won’t get any answers soon.  At the end of the book, I literally sat with my mouth hanging open, just flapping in the wind, because while I thought I saw the ending coming, I didn’t see the ending coming.  NOTHING in these books is predictable, and every time I thought I had it figured out, it was so much more.

If you like dark romances, or books about secret societies, then definitely give The Silver Swan a try.  Make sure to heed Amo’s warning and be aware there is a lot of mature, f’ed up content ahead, along with some triggers for sexual abuse.

5 Stars!

She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
