Genre: Darker YA romance. Enemies-to-lovers. Bully Romance.
Actual Rating: 4.25 stars
After reading Boys of Brayshaw High by Meagan Brandy I have been on a mission to find similar books. Books with an enemies-to-lovers trope, books where the MC is a bully, stuff like that. I don't know what it is about these books that get me going, but they do, and I am loving being able to find new gems. That being said, The Silver Swan came up as a recommended read, one that is similar to BOBH so of course I had to grab it. Did it meet my expectations? Absolutely!!! Of course, it's not without it's flaws and there were certain things that really aggravated me while reading, but for the most part, this book was great.
First and foremost, this is a YA romance as it takes place in high school. Now, I don't think it reads like a YA novel as the sexual situations and the way these kids handle themselves don't scream teenagers, but they are all 18 and under. Next, I would NOT recommend this book to high school aged kids (no one under 18 should read this one). There are just too many instances of abusive tendencies, raw and dirty sex, and drinking and drug taking. I'm no prude and this stuff doesn't personally bother me, but I don't want my kid reading it! Too many can get the wrong idea and the blurring of fantasy and reality could become problematic. Adults, read it all you want and enjoy. I did!
Now, this is a darker romance that centers are these Elite Kings who essentially rule their school. No one knows their secrets, they keep it pretty low key, and they are a mystery to all. But then a girl names Madison comes into their lives in the form of one of these kings stepsisters and things get pretty wild. You'll have to read it to see what I mean because I don't want to spoil the story. Just know, this is a dark book. It also ends in a crazy cliffhanger that makes you want the next book STAT. I know I'll be grabbing it now...
If you are in the mood for an originally dark and twisted read, I would definitely recommend this one. It has it's flaws as I mentioned (how Madison didn't question these boys about the secret they were keeping really made me mad), but is a good novel. I can't wait to read the next one!
