Charade by J.S. Cooper - FMR REVIEW

TITLE: Charade (Swept Away, 1.5)
AUTHOR: J.S. Cooper
RELEASE DATE: February 16, 2015
From New York Times bestselling author J.S. Cooper comes an e-novella prequel to the Swept Away series, best read after Illusion. Bianca is determined to avenge her father’s death, but to do that, she must get in bed with his enemies...

When Bianca’s father died, she was left with nothing but her memories—and a box full of secrets. Had her father really been squeezed out of the company he founded? And could his betrayers have something to do with the death of Bianca’s mother years before?

Bianca will do anything to find out—even pursue the heir to Bradley, Inc. But the road she’s on is a dangerous one, and if David Bradley sees through her charade, it could be deadly…

This was a very quick easy bridge read for the swept away series. This book was a prequel for the “Illusion” book and explained a lot of the who, what, when, where and why that I asked myself in that book. This book was a fast read and I was able to finish it in 1 sitting. It most definitely should not be read first in the series before Illusion.
The book jumps right in after Bianca’s father’s death and her quest to find out the truth. This is her POV and we can see the inner workings of her mind and why she does some of the things she does in illusion. This book was so needed to fill in the gaps. The characters in this book were easy to read and the plot was clear.
I enjoyed this little novella and was happy to have it. I have enjoyed the “Swept Away” series and cannot wait for the next book Disillusioned. I am dying to know what happens next in this sultry little series! This was a 3.75 star book for me.

3.75 Stars
