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.
The description of the book brought me right in. Also the fact that I am from South Carolina and travel to Charleston all the time really had me wanting to read. I just have to say the description is great, but doesn't do it justice. I loved this book and loved even more that it was part of a series and that there was more to read. The secrecy and hidden society have you hanging on every chapter. Excellent read and very hard to put down. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

After a certain point, money is meaningless. It ceases to be the goal. The game is what counts.~Aristotle Onassis
There's a mystery floating in Charleston, South Carolina and it revolves around one word...Kythera. To anyone outside the city limits it means nothing, but to those who live there it's a word whispered in awe and respect or jealousy and hate.
Welcome to a world where money isn't the only name of the game.
All the King’s Men is the sequel to The Kings of Charleston and continues the adventures of Casper and Cal as they try to escape Kythera and the mysterious group looking to destroy the “K”. Will they leave behind everything they've known or will their association with Kythera destroy them before they can escape?
The Kings of Charleston asked, are you in? All the King's Men asks, will you survive?
After reading book one, book two was a MUST. Will certainly not be disappointed. I love the way it's written and how developed the characters are. I look forward to reading book three as I know you will be as well. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
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.
