By Kat H. Clayton
Casper Whitley is forced to move to Charleston, South Carolina where she’ll be the new kid her senior year of high school. Casper’s upset about the move until she meets the Roman family’s gorgeous son, Cal, but there’s a problem. A mystery surrounds him which can be summed up in one word…Kythera. Never heard of it? Neither has Casper until she finds the word tattooed on cars, paintings and all her new friends.
After Casper’s life is threatened, someone is forced to tell the truth about her parents, the Romans and Kythera’s motives for her being in Charleston. Once the truth is revealed, she must decide whether to protect her family and Kythera’s secrets or walk away from everything she has ever known.
I really didn’t know what to expect from this book when I put together the cover, title and synopsis, because to be honest, in my own head, none of it goes together at first glance. The title sounds like an adult thriller, the cover looks like a sexy mystery and the synopsis sounds like a typical YA drama with a hot guy. None of that is what The Kings of Charleston is. Instead, it’s suspenseful, somewhat violent and while there’s a hot guy, he’s far from typical. I may have been wondering what it was at first, but once I started, this kept me engaged from beginning to end.
