    Ok seriously!? ANOTHER perfect guy loves Reed?My friends and I have decided that she is similar to Bella from Twilight. She seems to have very little personality, is guy obsessed, and yet someone all of the guys love her. She's plain and yet somehow she gets everything she wants and the guys cant' stop drooling around her. She comes from an area where she is unnoticed to a new area and it's like shes a drug. (not intending to quote Twlight) Sorry for a rant, but it's starting to irritate me.Just as long as Upton isn't a vampire.....

    After the cliffhanger ending of the 8th book, I was REALLY excited for this one -- but it was a bit of a let-down. I read the back of the book, which I should NOT have done as that alone provided too much resolution (and I HATE having anything spoiled for me!). But of course, I plowed on anyway, 'cause I've enjoyed most of the other entries in this series quite a bit.This one though? Eh. I've never liked Reed, and she's not growing on me here. The whole "she's the only one who doesn't try or know what she's doing but things just go her way 'cause she's simply that compelling" schtick is stretched beyond the bounds of its credibility by this one, as is her wide-eyed, "gosh these rich people" patter. The number of secondary characters is getting out of control and exceedingly difficult to keep track of -- it took me most of the book to remember who Daniel and Page Ryan are, and I still don't exactly have it pinned down. To top that off, nearly a dozen other new characters have been added to the mix.I think the main thing though is the change of scenery -- I've always hated "vacation" books and others which take the characters out of their main setting (like "Infamous," the beyond-boring It Girl book that takes place in NYC). Much of these books' charm comes from the vaguely ominous New England prep school setting, and sending the whole crew on a predictably luxe vacay to St. Barth's was pretty much a snoozefest. Still, since we're started now on the third major story arc of the series, I'll read book 10 to figure out what the heck's going on.

    This is one of my favorite books of all time! I just love this series. It's a drama but it always has a lot of mystery considering there are crimes committed all the time. The one thing I really like about this author is that I never want to put her books down because there is something exciting happening on each and every page! I would suggest this book to any girl who loves murder mysteries but also likes shows like gossip girl! My favorite character would have to be Reed because she is so down to earth and normal unlike the other girls in this book. I just really like this book!

    totally see the appeal of why i loved this book so much in high school. i remember wanting to go to st.barts to vacation there and meet an upton giles of my own however i did find reed extremely annoying and accusing everyone of her problems. seriously, take a minute and just think about what your saying right now. loved how they gang got back together and you really see taylor changed and is more her own person after being told to leave Easton all together, it was good for her. poppy on the other hand along with the ryans, seirra, and west? drama much. really excited to finally almost be done because i had never finished the last two book in the series and im almost there!

    Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo.comWith the debacle of Sabine finally behind her, Reed finally hopes that life at Easton will quiet down. People are starting to talk about her having a bad vibe around her. Bad luck happens to those that come close to Reed. For now, Josh is sitting beside Ivy's hospital bed. When Josh saved Reed from the bullet, it hit Ivy, instead. With Christmas break looming, Reed can't face going home to Pennsylvania. She knows she will be hounded by the news after the latest drama at school. It's Noelle who comes to Reed's rescue. She invites Reed to holiday on St. Barth's (yes, this is how it's spelled in the story) with the rest of her family and a small private group. At first Reed hesitates, knowing she can't afford to go. But Noelle insists, and Reed's spirits soar. She's accepted by the Billings girls again, and she'll get to see Kiran and Taylor at long last. Arriving on the island, Reed gets caught up in the island spirit. Kiran will not take no for an answer when she insists on outfitting Reed for the holiday. Kiran has a company account to shop and spend, so how can Reed say no? Reed quickly learns of the "Upton Game." The game is simple. Who will be the first to kiss Upton this year? Upton Giles is apparently the most gorgeous, sought after guy on the island. Even Noelle finds him attractive. Reed is intrigued but vows to avoid all boy complications on this holiday. Nothing will make her happier than lying in the sun getting a tan and hanging out with her friends. But once Reed lays eyes on the infamous Upton, she understands the infatuation with him. He is truly the most spectacular guy she's ever seen. But she still insists she wants no part of the game. The holiday gets hard for Reed though, because Upton has noticed her and also doesn't take no for an answer. Will Reed be able to resist Upton's advances? Will there be rivalries for Upton's affections? Will the introduction of some new characters (mainly Poppy) wreak more havoc in Reed's life? Ms. Brian takes a simple pleasure of a vacation holiday and turns it into a crazy, adventurous getaway. For fans of the PRIVATE series, PARADISE LOST almost feels like a holiday, as well. Removed from the boarding school setting, PARADISE LOST is a guilty pleasure that everyone will enjoy. But, if you're like me, I can't wait to have Reed return to Easton Academy and Billings and find out what happens next!

    After the reveal of Cheyenne's murderer and an unfortunate victim of the murderer getting hospitalized, Reed Brennan just wants to get a break from all this drama.And what better place to relax than the Caribbeans? Reed and the Billing girls spend their vacation getting into the best clubs, going to expensive yachts, sunbathing on white-sand beaches, and roasting marshmallows on an open fire while Noelle tells a story about that time she killed a dog because it pleased her.Okay, the last one is a complete lie. I hope. Enter Upton: The hottest British (Yes, really) guy in the entire island. Did I mention he's hot? Short story short, he falls for Reed and every girl is jealous.Um, what?Okay, seriously, Reed is turning into a below average protagonist. There. I said it. How believable that Upton fell for Reed--instantly, I may add--without any complications. Okay, yes, there's Poppy and her bitchy crew, and Upton's player tendencies, but there was hardly any drama.It could have been interesting if Reed and another girl were competing for Upton's attention (with him not giving a fuck) and having a bitchy explosion between them.Pathetic, but more realistic.And let's not forget that dreadful typo! Basically, Poppy was missing after the Upton fiasco. Then, she came back and told everyone that she sailed over to St. Kitts. The problem is, it's stated that Paige said that, not Poppy, even though Paige was with the girls the whole time. The typo is the name mix up!WHAT. THE. HELL?It's nothing new that the editors of this series don't notice the inconsistencies throughout the books: Descriptions and physical appearances are not set in stone. What color is Reed Brennan's hair, Brian? Dark blonde or brown? And what was Thomas Pearson's eye color? Icy blue or brown? MAKE UP YOUR MIND!But, after that surprising cliffhanger, I'm more than excited to know what happens next.But, of course.

    There were so many new characters in this book. I couldn't keep track of them all!! I kinda really like Sawyer. I didn't really like a lot of the new girls, especially Poppy. What annoyed me the most was Upton. I hate that all these boys keep trying to go out with Reed, even though she should obviously be with Josh. I'm also mad at him for not calling her the whole book. This book just reinforcing the fact that I hate Amberly even more. I'm glad that Reed for to see Taylor and Kiran. She needs some relax time. It didn't turn our to be that relaxing, though. Apparently, she has another stalker... Why can't Kate Brian just giver her a break? Reed did get a lot of cool new stuff for Christmas. I thought our wad kind of funny that Noelle's dad got her a present. I did like the present Upton for her, even though I don't like him. When I went to the library this time, I made sure to get the next two bookas to avoid a cliffhanger. I failed at accomplishing this. Next time, I'm just going to get all the ones I haven't read..... Rick Riordan is the king of cliffhangers; Kate Brian is the queen.

    ***Spoiler Free Summary By Emerald BookWorm***I didn't know a thing about this series going into it. My boyfriend (now husband) would always go to the library to pick up books for me and he stumbled across this series and brought me the first book, thinking I would enjoy it. /// Well he was right lol. /// I was instantly hooked and reserving the next book within 24 hours. /// This series is definitely not realistic and is pretty dramatic lol , but it's lots of fun and it was the first time I'd ever read anything like this before. /// It went places I would of never thought. /// I know it looks super cheesy, and maybe it is to an extent lol, but the story is pretty good actually and kept me interested. /// There are a lot of books in this series but it's so easy to read through and very enjoyable. /// I recommend!

    I'm a little disappointed with the current storyline of this arc so far. To me, it seems as if the author is trying to extend a series that has already been concluded. I adored the first eight Private novels, but this one seems to be lacking the same suspense factors that were the key of the success of the other Private books. I'm going to continue with this arc, to give it a real chance, but at this point it looks like the storyline has reached its end.

    I liked this book because of the funny cute moments, although I have learned that all the books in the series are beginning to get repetitive. The main character, Reed, meets and begins to open up to someone, usually a guy and starts to really like them. Then the antagonist comes around, messes up their relationship. At the end, something bad happens to Reed. From the last few books, she is threatened by death.

    Aaaand we're back. This series, like Pretty Little Liars should've ended at book 8, but it is forcibly continued. The story felt forced and Upton's interest in Reed was kind of annoying as she is the most boring person in the group. But meh, what can we do!

    Very happy that Reed is back to being a Billings girl. In addition to being another mystery, it is also very suspenseful. Some of the girls have a lot of growing up to do. Of course there are also some of the girls I just can't stand. What immature babies. I am happy for Reed and Upton. I don't believe in a player changing. Although, I have heard of some men who have changed. Did Reed really change Upton for the better? Who is stalking Reed this time and who tried to kill her? I also don't think Reed should be in competition with Amberly over a room. After all, Amberly is a freshman. It was also proven in the last book that Reed did not mean to do what she did with Dash in the last book. Therefore she should have never lost presidency. Looking forward to the next book. Kate Brian is an incredible writer and I have decided she is another favorite author.

    I actually liked this one. Though most YA authors take their characters out of a familiar setting and into tropical or winter wonderland, it rarely works out. And continuity. Always a bonus. My guess is that it's Sawyer or Upton. Brian likes having villains betray Reed. Btw, it's so obvious that (view spoiler)[that Mr. Lange is Reed's bio father. (hide spoiler)]

    Reed's romantic actions in this book irritated me. I actually groaned aloud at some of Upton's cheesy romantic lines and Reed's stupidity. Also there were way too many noticeable typos.

    Finally we get a book set outside Easton! Just when I thought I couldn't handle another year at Easton, Kate Brian gives us a book entirely set in St. Barths. :DI really didn't see the change of location coming at all, but it was a welcome change nonetheless. The new setting completely changes the dynamic, making for a much more relaxed and less emotionally exhausting text - you can practically feel how laid back everyone is! The new setting also paved the way for the introduction of a whole host of new characters. If this book had been set at Easton the whole series could've easily stagnated, because there's only so much you can do in the school setting with this small group of characters. And if the author had randomly decided to have all these new students come to Easton, that just wouldn't have worked. I think the change of scenery was a wise choice on the part of the author, and a welcome decision on the part of the readers. This is the Private series though, and this is Reed we're talking about, so of course she still manages to get stalked and nearly murdered while she's in paradise. I loved the drama with Ariana and Sabine, but why is Poppy the only one to notice that Reed inevitably leaves a trail of disaster and death in her wake? How is it that her boyfriend is dead, her dorm-mate is dead, and two people have tried to kill her? I should feel sorry for her and her awful luck, but instead I'm more frustrated and aggravated. Having someone stalking or trying to murder Reed every semester is getting a little old. Regardless, I am intrigued to find out who's stalking Reed this time. Despite how much Noelle and the girls try to convince Reed that she's just being paranoid, I don't buy it. The spooking of the horse was suspicious enough, then came the tampering with the jetski, the mysterious figure in the photo and the grand finale, someone attacking and pushing Reed off the boat. The simple answer is Poppy since she's definitely pissed at Reed for stealing Upton, but I think (or hope!) it's a little more complicated than that. The Ryans are acting bizarre and Mrs. Ryan's hatred for Reed seems unfounded and irrational. I also think it may have something to do with Jen Hathaway and her death. The girls only found out she was dead when they asked after her on the island, and the explanation about her death was conveniently interrupted. Noelle's dad and Mr. Hathaway are also acting bizarre and evading questions, when they're ~supposedly only talking about the open headmaster position at Easton. Upton also skeeves me out and I don't buy his omg-I-used-to-be-a-player-but-now-I-only-have-eyes-for-you-Reed act, but I doubt he's secretly trying to kill her. Overall: Paradise Lost features a welcome change of scenery, leaving behind the stifling, oppressive air of Easton for the cool, calming ocean air of St. Barths. We're also introduced to a whole host of new characters, opening up the floor for new relationships and new drama. Reed's ability to attract stalkers and murderers at every turn is getting old though, and you may find yourself headdesking as she continues to be tormented in the Caribbean.

    Time for a change of scenery! We're off on a tropical vacay with Reed and co. who are recovering from the revelation of Cheyenne's murderer. Some new characters, a sexy boy toy, and a nice reprieve from the Billings drama. I love the new cast of characters! The plot feels fresh and exciting again. Unfortunatley, I'm having trouble buying Reed's sway with the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE (or so he seems... I kind of like that he's university aged so I feel less creepy for finding him intriguing...). I mean, come on. Reed is alright but she's sort of weird. 4/5

Paradise Lost has many themes, such as love, friendship, family, murder, mystery, adventure, education, betrayal, and DEATH! Kate Brian is an excellent author, when she wrote all of the rest of the novels. It drags the reader in. Once you finish reading one book, you won't be able to stop reading the second book. Some books that Kate Brian wrote are Private, Invitation, Untouchable, Confessions, Inner circle, Legacy, Ambition, Revelation, Last Christmas, and much more. Kate Brian's novels in a series are all cliff hangers, meaning that it will leave you thinking about the book. Leaving you hanging there waiting for the next book.Reed went through a lot in her high school years. First, her boyfriend, Thomas, was murdered. She betrayed her best friend, got kick out of the Billings House, a stalker is trying is kill her. Her best friend tries to murder her. At every moment Reed is at risk of dying.

Reed thought that she won't be getting any evil stare in her vacation. But she is wrong, Popp. Poppy is very cruel to Reed, because she thinks that Reed is stealing her "boyfriend" away. At the very last page, page 243, there is a cliff hanger but I won't tell you what happen. You'll just need to read it for yourself!I really enjoyed reading Paradise Lost. I'm not sure if there is a book after this. But the ending of Paradise Lost is a shocking ending. If you really put yourself in Reed's shoes you can sense her feelings and action. Even if it is someone shooting her... If you havent read this series than I suggest you to read start reading it. Don't skip any books because you will be confuse!

    ‘Paradise Lost’ is the ninth book in the ‘Private’ series. Reed jets off to an island together with Noelle and other Billings girls and she’s reunited with Kiran and Taylor. Despite catching the eye of the popular player, Upton and spending lots of time partying and relaxing, Reed’s fun vacation soon turns deadly as she becomes convinced that someone is stalking her.This entire book was a massive filler from the beginning until the end. Although Kiran and Taylor were back, there wasn’t much focus on them at all apart from the author briefly filling the reader in on what they had done ever since they left Easton Academy. Instead, the instant ‘romance’ between Reed and Upton was the main storyline. It’s seriously ridiculous that guys always fall for Reed even though she’s boring at best and desperate at worst. Needless to say, the two of them had no chemistry and the author’s obvious attempts to portray Upton as extremely good-looking and irresistible failed because he had no personality.The introduction of several characters was certainly unwelcome and unnecessary. All of them were simply names on the pages. Only the quiet Sawyer held a little promise of being a possibly interesting character but that alone wasn’t enough to justify the need to bring in more characters. Plus, the girls’ Upton Game which they’d been playing for years with the aim of hooking up with Upton was juvenile and ridiculous. It also wasn’t realistic because no matter how hot someone is, his looks wouldn’t appeal to every girl. Thank goodness Noelle didn’t participate as she’s clearly way above that sort of mentality.As for Reed suspecting that she has a stalker, that could have been a nice refreshing change from reading about the girls dressing up and putting on make-up and partying. Unfortunately, it was merely touched on a couple of times. Everything which happened in the previous book seemed to have been easily forgotten. I would have thought that anyone who had a gun pointed to their head wouldn’t be in the mood to go on a vacation shortly after such a close shave with death but Reed certainly wasn’t affected (though she supposedly was).Overall, ‘Paradise Lost’ should have been titled ‘Time Lost’ as it was a pointless book only worth the time if you’re a hardcore Reed fan.

    We finally know who killed Cheyenne Martin and it’s time to get a little R&R. So instead of going home for Christmas, where Noelle points out Reed will be mobbed by the media, they all are going Carribean. This is a Christmas tradition for Noelle and the gang, but Reed isn’t sure what to expect.We see a lot of old faces on the island including Kiran and Taylor, Amberly and Tiffany. We also meet new, gorgeous ones including the Ryan twins, Sawyer, Poppy and the most beautiful man alive, Upton. Of course she does great with Kiran, Taylor and Noelle, but since she’s got the lead in the Upton Game, Poppy and her posse aren’t really fans.And then the strange stuff starts to happen. Poppy disappears, Reed has two almost death experiences and someone is lurking in the shadows.The beauty of the vacation spot in this book makes my mouth water. These are the kinds of places you see in your dreams and these girls are living it (well, through Kate’s writing). The weather is warming up here and I would love to be relaxed on a beach. I wouldn’t even need the designer gowns or Casino night.While this book had the drama built into it, it didn’t leave me hanging as the last book did. I know they will still be on the island in the next one, but I don’t really know what to expect. My guess is that Reed ends up with Sawyer, just a hunch.Now, I still have a hard time believing these girls are in high school. It still amazes me the things they know, see and do. I know that people with this much money do have the opportunity to live like this, we’ve all seen the reality shows, but I have a hard time fathoming going to St. Barth’s at Christmas my junior year in high school.I give Paradise Lost 4 bookmarks.

    Reed reunites with Taylor and Kiran and meets old Billings girls on the island. She even meets Upton, a hot guy who, though every girl on the island is after him (as they play the "Upton Game" of their childhood days), seems to have the hots for no one but her. But Reed is unable to escape her past. Even in paradise, she is stalked and threatened, and meets a flock of new enemies that would prove to be as dangerous as Ariana and Sabine.From a writer's point of view, it's hard to keep a reader's interest without having some form of mystery and intrigue, and a few gasping moments here and there, but from a reader's point of view, the intrigue is lost when the character is overwhelmed with destruction, such as the main character Reed's long trail of "bad luck," which seems to be the only definition the other characters can find for murder, two psycho killers, an accidental shooting, mind blowing scandals, and everything else that seems to center around only Reed and no one else, or at least she seems to be the only one who notices. Even her love life is exciting to read into, but loses its cool at the end of each book due to murder, an accidental shooting, and mind blowing scandals.Yes, I concede that the book would have been boring without the mystery and the drama, which is why I think Kate Brian should consider wrapping up this series before it gets even more over the top. The rest of the book was meaningless, but the ending has to tie in to the next book.Book Details: Title Paradise Lost (Private, Book 9)Author Kate BrianReviewed By Purplycookie

    4TH QUARTERSiti Hajar Mohd. KhairiParadise Lostby Kate Brian256 pagesSimon Pulse $9.99isbn: 1416958843(Ages 12 & up)Reed is BACK...with drama not very far behind! After the deathly blow concerning the two mental sisters: Sabine and Arianna and her whole situation with her old lover Josh, she was more than welcome to accept her invitation to the exclusive island --St. Barth's-- for Christmas vacation to spend time with THE girls. Away from Easton was what she most certainly needed but she had not expected drama to tag along. It all started with the Upton Game -- the search to get the most desirable man-on-Earth's undivided attention. But...with drama comes the seven sins! New acquaintances seem not-so-friendly at all and the distinct feeling Reed is being watched does not make life any easier. Could she win the Upton Game,shrug the shaky feeling she got when she thought she was being stalked, stop drama from breaking out or even end the curse of deaths that seemed to happen when Reed was around? This series continues as Reed deals with more drama than she had ever bargained for. It's a mix of mystery, real-teenager problems and a very addictive style of writing. I would recommend this book for girls ages 12 and up because it's about girl stuff, some things might not be suitable for younger readers and use of big vocabulary. How do famous and filthy rich people live? You'll find out when Reed tells her story. Don't sit and wait. Go GO GO and curl your fingers around a mystery than might just end shockingly. Find out what really brings Reed, definitely, over the edge...

    Reed Brennan is a magnet for trouble. It seems that everywhere she goes murder and mayhem follow. After the revelation at Kiran's pre-birthday bash, the Billings girls decide that maybe they should leave Easton a little early for their holiday plans.The Billings girls, along with Gage, Dash, and a few others head to St.Barth's for Christmas break. Reed is the only newcomer to the islands so the girls decide to introduce her to their favorite pastime,the Upton Game. Upton Giles is labeled the hottest man on the islands and the object of the game is to be the first girl to hook up with him. Reed decides that she is going to change her ways and forget about her past. She vows that she will stay out of the Upton Game and make her own fun, at least until she actually meets Upton.Little does she know, Upton is somebody else's boyfriend or at least she thinks he is. Poppy Simon is not happy about Reed interfering with her plans and she makes it known. Loyalties are tested and friendships are broken all over one guy.Also, Reed starts feeling a little paranoid. Everywhere she goes she seems to have some near death experience. And she doesn't think they are accidents. Reed can't help but feel like someone is following her and that whoever it is plans on taking Reed out of the Upton Game...for good.I was actually a little bit disappointed at the end of this book. I love all the Privates books but it seems like Kate Brian is running out of ideas. The ending is definitely another cliff-hanger, though. I may have been disappointed but I still can't wait for S

    I WASN'T THRILLED.During the entire book I felt like a moment or a near dead experience was gonna take place but the hit never came, and I just don't like it. The same goes to this little affair taking place between Reed and Upton, it's like she hasn't learn that she shouldn't fall in love with the first guy who shows to be nice to her, she's still the instant crusher when it comes to immaturities, and forgiving everything so easily, he made out with two girls she hates and she forgives him cause he was drunk, but when she was with Josh she immediately gave up on him. I seriously don't get this Reed.In other stuff, about my second ship there's Noelle and Dash, that I want them to be together again, they are totally meant to be! And it as nice to see Kiran and Taylor. But the bad aspect of this holidays was the whole stalker deal and the fact Mrs. Ryan is a fucking cunt, I guess mean girls don't mature they just grow old.But that initial scene with Josh and Reed hugging but partying ways cause of their relationship and duty towards Ivy for taking the bullet that Sabine shot for Reed which Josh deviates from her to hi current girlfriend. It was sad, and a bit angsty.Overall, this was the lowest next to Invitation Only when it comes to interesting moments, tasteful romance, and the shock element these novels always bring to the table. I felt it was plain with no shape, neither diversity. It was ok, just ok.

    It’s winter break and Reed had been trying to get over the things that happen in the past, her friends recommended Reed to go on a vacation to St Barths with them. The Easton's students are still in shock about the tragedies that happened on Easton’s campus. Reed agrees to the trip as an attempt to move forward. While vacationing, her former best friends Noelle,Kiran,and Taylor were playing the Upton game. Upton was some guy who have a whole amount of crushes. As Noelle, and Taylor describe the hottest man on earth. She's not ready to be in love again, so she didn't agree to play the Upton game, but that was before when she met Upton, she realize that she is falling for him. She's not 100% sure that she's ready to fall in love again because she's still not recover yet from the love triangle between her, Josh, and Ivy.I can connect to this book because I love attention just like Reed. And whenever I'm alone I would also be very bored and upset.I can connect to this book with a text to world connection because many people probably had also experience adventures and also have the same love relationship a triangle) like Josh, Reed, and Ivy.I rate this book 5 stars because I basically like almost every book Kate Brian has written.Her books attracts readers to continue knowing what happens next with the tragic and climax.I suggest this book to readers who like the genre romance,mystery,and tragic.
