I was swept away by this is an amazing story by the ever talented J.S. Cooper. Her best book to date. I couldn't put it down, having to know what happened next. Bianca has a dead line for her upcoming movie review, when a handsome man sits at her table at the coffee shop. She is attracted to him, but also distracted by a man watching her. So she rudely and abruptly leaves. She is desperately trying to find out about her father's past business and the death of her mother. Then one night she is drugged and kidnapped and wakes up in the back of a car with a man. Many hours later they find themselves on a deserted island. In this process she realizes the man with her is none other than the man from the coffee shop, his name Jakob. Bianca must find out why they have been kidnapped together or is it because he sat with her. She knows that the business family from her father's past would stop at nothing to keep her from finding evidence of what is rightfully hers. Jakob is gorgeous, mysterious and strong, but her mind won't let her fully trust him, yet her body wants him like she has wanted no other. Jakob is keeping his secrets as well, but finds he is as attracted to her and different than he expected. Yet, they must figure out what connects the 2 of them to be here together. When another man mysteriously shows up on the island, more questions and built up trusts come into question. Will they survive their stay on this island and ever get home? Is there more than just the waves in the ocean that are an Illusion? This book had me spellbound from beginning to end. The amazingly talented J.S. Cooper humbles me with her imagination. The intrigue, surprises, adventure and sexual innuendo will leave you wanting more. As with all J.S. Cooper books you will not want to put down the book until you reach the end. Enjoy!
I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK!!! Romance laced with mystery and suspense. I think ILLUSION just became my MOST FAVORITE book by J.S. Cooper!
After her father passed away, Bianca dedicated her time to uncovering the truth about her mother's death. However, she was investigating the wrong people. She wakes up in the back trunk of a car with a strange man, Jakob. Then a few hours later, they are dumped and left stranded on a deserted island. Who could have done this? And who is this gorgeous guy? Is he a friend or a foe? Jakob wants to figure out why have they been kidnapped and how were they going to escape. But to do this, they must work together. How are they connected? Can they trust each other? As secrets are reveal, everything they thought they knew about each other is put into question.
I loved the characters in this book. Bianca was strong woman who only became stronger as the book progressed. She definitely used her mind and didn't let her body dictate all of her decision making. There was a raw sexual chemistry between her and Jakob. And the chemistry grew more intense as they spent more time together, but Bianca was still skeptical and didn't trust him completely. Smart girl! Jakob was a sexy, arrogant billionaire. I was instantly attracted to him. He immediately took control of the situation and was very protective of Bianca, always making sure she was okay and never pushing her to do something she wasn't comfortable with. He was so irresistible! I was unsure of Jakob in the beginning. Did he have a motive or was he simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and gotten kidnapped? I had my theory and didn't completely trust him until the last 30% of the book. But his secret shocked me! It was one of those 'Wooh...no way!' moments, but my original suspicion was correct.
The plot was absolutely amazing! It was full of secrets, lies, and deceptions. I kept guessing and re-guessing where the story was headed and how it was going to end. There were so many twists and turns. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time wanting to see what's going to happen next. I followed the clues and was ultimately lead to a jaw dropping ending! I can't wait for DISILLUSIONED to see how Jakob and Bianca's story will continue.
