Forbidden fruit never tasted this sweet…
“Swoon-worthy, forbidden, and sexy, Liam North is my new obsession.” – New York Times bestselling author Claire Contreras
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.
“Overture is a beautiful composition of forbidden love and undeniable desire. Skye has crafted a gripping, sensual, and intense story that left me breathless. Get ready to be hooked!” – USA Today bestselling author Nikki Sloane
Good, Mellow Read
Let me start by saying: If you came here straight from “Wanderlust”, this isn’t the passionate, dangerous Hunter you’re looking for. (He will always be my measure for rugged, dangerous, fictional men.)
However, if you liked Kip from “Love The Way You Lie”, then Liam North is your guy. Liam is strong, brooding & elusive in the same way.
This wasn’t just a story about two people exploring a taboo relationship with sex in every other chapter. Nothing was hotter than the fact that they couldn’t do the deed. (Can we get an AMEN for when he got rough with the reporter because he’s a great man beast with desires too volatile for the person he really wants to bang???)
My only problem with the story is that sometimes it felt slow because of too much internal dialoguing. Samantha & Liam were always fighting themselves about the same thing, just said in different ways with different words. It got a little repetitive.
Otherwise, the book came together really well at the end, & I can’t wait to read “Concerto”.
Overture definitely pushed all my buttons. It gets you out of your comfort zone reading with this taboo forbidden romance. So many risky situations that you are not sure what will happen next. Did I think I would end up liking this story, at first I was uncertain. I love Skye Warren's writing. I was trying my hardest to get past about some circumstances that were part of the "forbidden romance" part. As the end neared, you start to uncover some truths. The why's and how's blend together with this forbidden melody.
I enjoyed all the musical quotes/facts with the beginning of each chapter. It brings you closer for the love of music. I was intrigued enough at the end to see what will be coming with the second book. I really love Liam and Samantha. I just need to love them as a couple. I think that is where I will get to with the second book as they grow into different rolls.
No one writes dark, forbidden romance as well as Skye Warren. This book was amazing. Ends perfectly for the next installment. Plenty of slow burn sexual tension. Balanced with action and angst. Wonderfully written and plotted. A must read.
