Publisher's Summary

Forbidden fruit never tasted this sweet....

The world knows Samantha Brooks as the violin prodigy. She guards her secret truth - the desire she harbors for her guardian. Liam North got custody of her six years ago. She's all grown up now, but he still treats her like a child. No matter how much he wants her. No matter how bad he aches for one taste. 

Her sweet overtures break down the ex-soldier's defenses, but there's more at stake than her body. Every touch, every kiss, every night. The closer she gets, the more exposed his darkest secret. She's one step away from finding out what happened the night she lost her family.

One step away from leaving him forever.

Can't Believe It!

So mad right now - I swore I would not listen to another audible book that was a duet, trilogy, series, etc., until all books were available. How do you avoid this, when the publisher, author, or whoever doesn't announce this fact before you purchase. What I thought was a stand alone obviously is not - I read the audible reviews and no one mentioned it ended completely unfinished, left me hanging and who knows for how long - probably until I have forgotten what I just listened too, as I devour audios at a rate of 5 -7 per week.
The book is amazing - the narrators are amazing - you will enjoy it, however you will be left hanging - I wish someone had warned me - I feel I needed to pass this on. No clue when the continuation will be available. Love audio, but getting really burnt out on being deceived.

Forbidden romance?

I love this book but I wish it was mentioned in the blurb that it’s a cliffhanger...
Great storyline with good progression
Characters descriptions is good, they all feels familiar after a while.
There’s lots of feelings and the author has a way of getting the emotions through in her story.
Steamy love scenes
Samantha is strong and Liam is stubborn, it’s a turbulent relationship growing between them.

Narrators:
Very good voices that has clear pronunciation and passionate reading.

If you like a hint of forbidden love and a cliffhanger I recommend you listen to this. Even with the cliffhanger it’s worth it. Next book please!!!

The Perfect Push Out of My Comfort Zone

I'm not generally a fan of age gap or taboo romances, but Liam and Samantha's story really sucked me in! Skye Warren really took me out of my comfort zone with this forbidden love story between a ward and her guardian. Even though there are 16 years that separate Samantha and Liam, I found myself amazingly rooting for them by the end. The fact that I was able to look past all the things that would have warning bells going off in my mind as a parent, is a true testament to Skye Warren's brilliant storytelling. The angst is super high in this one, but it's balanced well with the suspense and mystery surrounding Samantha's past and the more intimate moments. I'm very intrigued by the North siblings and hope that we will see books for them in the future as well.

Teddy Hamilton's narration is wonderful as always, but I'm more used to him as the sweeter hero, so it was an adjustment to think of him as the ultra-alpha and gruff Liam North. Grace Grant's performance was good, but I felt her voice was a bit too mature for 17 (almost 18) year old Samantha. Hamilton and Grant worked well together though and overall, it was a pleasant listening experience (though I enjoyed Hamilton's narration more).

Listeners should note that this is book 1 in a trilogy, so be prepared for a cliffhanger. As far as cliffhangers go, it wasn't terrible at all, but it's something to keep in mind. I'm excited to see what's next for Liam and Samantha!

Overture

*This book ends in a cliff hanger* I wasn't aware of that before starting the book but the second book is soon to be released.
Samantha Brooke is an almost 18 year old child prodigy. She has an amazing talent with the Violin and is soon to start going on tour. When her father died 6 years ago Liam North took her in as his legal guardian. Now that the clock is ticking down to her 18th birthday, a lot of things are about to change, secret revealed, and the temptation between them both is starting to become unbearable.

This was an amazing read (listen). Liam is dark, and captivating. The whole story has a seductive and forbidden feel as Liam is 16 years older than Samantha, but there is so much more to the story than the forbidden fruit story line as there are many twists along the way that must be revealed. All throughout both Liam and Samantha feel wrong about their desire for each other.

Can not wait for the second book to be released.

The Audio for this book was beautifully done. This was the first audio I've listened from Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant but they did a wonderful job matching the voices for each of the characters.

A true masterpiece

When the one thing you crave is the only thing you can never touch.

Overture is an addictive listen. Absolutely everything you could want in a forbidden romance. It’s well written and perfectly narrated.

I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys forbidden/taboo, OTT Alphas, steamy angst and suspense. I can’t wait to continue on in this series.

Holy hot taboo

This was my first dip into a Skye Warren series. I knew going in that Skye Warren is known for her taboo storylines. I didn’t read anything before I started this series so I had no idea what to expect which made this taboo twisty story that much more intense!

This was an age gap romance between a guardian and a minor. Where minor turns 18 and guardian status becomes eliminated, minor status becomes eliminated.....how long will they last until they stop towing the line of “we can’t do this” and, well, do it 😉

Forbidden love that was meant to be

*****This is book one in a trilogy*****

Skye Warren pulled me in from the beginning with this taboo tale of forbidden love and lust between Liam (a bodyguard/guardian) and Samantha (child violin prodigy). Liam's heartbreaking past of growing up with an abusive parent haunts him and has caused him to be convinced that he is unable to love - yet he has fallen in love with the violin playing prodigy, Samantha, that he has taken care of since her loveless father died when she was extremely young. There is someone after Samantha and Liam will do anything (and everything) to keep her safe - but will their love grow and survive no matter how much Liam fights it? ****Please take note that nothing happens until she turns 18**** The age gap doesn't bother me, there is nothing vulgar in my eyes. The way Skye wrote this book, it's completely flawless how she weaves this love story about 2 individuals with pasts wrapped in hurtful darkness. There is mystery, suspense and this book will leave you with a longing - I'm usually not a fan of cliffhangers but Skye stole my heart with this one. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
Teddy brings Liam to life perfectly - his voice is like a fine scotch and fits this alpha male character like no other. I could listen to his voice all day. Grace's voice fits the personality of Samantha fantastically. It's like this story was written just for these two narrators - I don't think anyone else would fit it.
