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..........


Holy Moly!!!  I am utterly speechless right now!!  The Silver Swan was a completely twisted story that had me all twisted around.  I could not figure out what was going on.  Who was good and bad.  Every time I thought I had something figured out, it would change instantaneously.  This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be.  I went into this story blind, and I could not put it down.  I had to know what happened next.  Had to know what was actually happening.  I loved the characters so much!!!  All of them!!  Who wouldn't love all those men.  They each had their own personalities and I couldn't help falling for them.

Madison was the new girl in a new school.  She caught the attention of The Elite on the very first day.  What I loved about Madison was that even though she was wealthy, she never judged anyone.  She accepted everyone for who they are.  She even made friends with a girl named Tillie who went to a public school.  Madison wasn't materialistic at all.  She loved wearing boots, loved to shoot guns and when the guys decided to paintball, she was right there with them.  She didn't like secrets.  Who would.  She knew something was going on, but no one would ever tell her the truth.  Everything was always very vague or in riddles.  But, Madison is one strong individual, and I loved that about her.  She didn't take anything from anyone.  Always fought back. 

Bishop had me confused a lot of times.  I couldn't figure out what his intentions were towards Madison.  I was questioning whether he had actual feelings for her or if it was truly a game.  The same goes with all his friends.  They were all nice to her one minute, then completely change the next.  Even though Bishop appeared dark, I felt that there was so much more to him.  He even said a few times that things weren't as they seemed.  Bishop came from a very wealthy family as well.  Even though he was wealthy and hot, he didn't sleep around.  His last girlfriend was two years before, if she was even his girlfriend.  But, he doesn't just sleep with anyone and I liked that about him. 

Nate was probably my favorite character in this book.  I loved his personality.  He completely won my heart over.  He seemed to end up really caring about Madison by the end.  Her step-brother became her brother.  Their relationship was sweet and hilarious at times.  Boy, did he know how to push Madison's buttons.  This man slept with anyone and everyone.  He only sleeps with females once though.  But, then he ends up sleeping with one of Madison's friend more than once.  He starts to show true feelings for her, but ends up messing it up.  He doesn't do commitments so I am hoping that changes for him.

I loved the other Elite members as well.  I am hoping to get to know them a lot more in future books.  Some seemed warm and welcoming and others didn't.  I have no clue what was up with Brantley.  He seemed to not like Madison at all. He would give her smiles here and there when everything was okay, but when trouble lurked, she always got the evil eye.  Have to wonder if what I found out at the end, was why he didn't like her. 

I loved Tillie and Tatum.  They were true best friends to Madison.  Those three together just fit perfectly.  At times, I will admit that I was wondering if one was deceiving her since this book had me all twisted.   But, they were always there for her, and she was always there for them.  Three peas in a pod. They were so much a like, yet so different. 

The secrets and twists at the end of this book shocked me to my core.  A lot of that I did not see coming at all.  I want to know who these people truly are and what they actually do.  What this all means for Madison.  Mind-blown!  This was just epic on so many levels. I am very intrigued!

The Silver Swan was an enthralling read that hooked me from the very beginning and didn't let me go until the very end.  I loved how all the details were woven in just perfectly to create this masterpiece.  Amo Jones did a fantastic job with this story.  The Silver Swan did leave off with a huge cliffhanger that definitely left me wanting more.  I NEED to know what happens next!!  I can't wait for the sequel!!!  This is a MUST read!!  I highly recommend it!!  I am already wanting to reread it if that says anything!!  This book has become another top favorite for me!!!

“Nate?” I whisper. “Maybe I took a wrong turn.”
“Nate!” I yell down the phone. “This isn’t funny.”
“I’m not laughing, sis. Keep going, we can see your headlights.” What am I doing? I’m basically relying on the fact that Nate and I had bonded a little and that both our parents are together. I’m not sure those facts are worth my life. No, he wouldn’t. I’m just being paranoid. The only time, except for school, where I didn’t bring my fucking pistol either. I sag in defeat. 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’ve failed as a fucking daughter. I shuffle up in my seat.
“Nate, I don’t fucking see anything up here but ja—OMG!” I slam on the breaks, all four tires locking up in a skid. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. “Nate!” I yell into the phone.
Slowly, I look up out the front windscreen, the thick dust from my tires interrupting the loose gravel still floating in the air and that’s when I see it again.
Ten men.
Ten dark hoodies covering their faces.
Ten—“Nate..” understanding sets in. Ten.
Slamming the gear into reverse, I’m just about to floor it backwards—to hell with anything or anyone behind me—when my driver’s window smashes into a million pieces, the tiny shards of glass falling onto my lap. 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. “Hello Madison. You don't know us, but we know you. We want to play a game. Here's what happens if you lose...”
