The Kings of Charleston by Kat H. Clayton Review and giveaway!

The Kings of Charleston by Kat H. Clayton
Series: The Kings of Charleston Series, #1
Publication: July 10th 2012
Genre: YA Romantic Suspense
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.

Kat has been a writer her entire life, but never pursued a writing career until the characters from a short story she wrote in high school refused to go away. Finally, she sat down and wrote their story which would became The Kings of Charleston series.

 Kat has been an avid reader her entire life. She enjoys all genres, but particularly Mystery and Young Adult. Mary Higgins Clark is one of her favorite authors who inspired her love of mysteries. 

 When she isn't writing, Kat loves to travel, try out new recipes and hang out with her husband. She is originally from Kentucky, but currently resides in South Georgia with her husband, a cat named Frank and a dog named Lil. Author Links: Website:

My Review:
What would you do if you lost everything? What if you were responsible for a family? What if someone offered you a 7 bedroom, 3 story house with fireplaces and Jacuzzis, and money? Not to mention a really nice car. What would you be willing to sacrifice?
What if you were a teenager and your parents accepted the offer of money and housing? Would you agree with your parents and do what they say, or would you run away? Who would you take with you? Would you even try to save your parents?
This was a really exciting read for me. I Didn't know what was going on and who was who. What is Kythera, and how many people are involved? Casper is surrounded by Kythera owned businesses and people. She doesn't know who to trust.
Once she gets involved with Cal, she sees more of the town, and more of Kythera pasted everywhere
I was hooked! I needed to know who was in charge of Kythera and what they wanted with Casper's family. I am giving this a 4/5 because there is a cliffhanger at the end, and I didn't have closure. I will be reading the next book in this series though to find out what happens to Casper!
The book itself was an easy read and I enjoyed the plot. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own!
