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!!!

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.

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.

I NEED MORE!!!

So this book was so good. Yes it ends with a cliffhanger, but it is so well written that it is ok. The chemistry between the two characters is strong. The narration was perfect! Also the last sentence of this book is absolutely not expected!! I cannot wait for the next book!!!

Amazing!

Overture was amazing! I love forbidden romance and this definitely is no exception. It was taboo, intriguing, and sexy af. Child prodigy Samantha and her guardian Liam are great together, their love is anything but familial. I absolutely loved the build up.
The ending was unexpected and left me eagerly anticipating more.

Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant did an amazing job narrating. They brought the characters and story to life. I loved listening to them.

Forbidden Fruit : A Violin Prodigy

Overture (North Security #1) "Forbidden fruit never tasted this sweet...."

Overture, told in duo pov's, is a cyclonic forbidden May-December romantic suspense.
Conspiracy, danger and mysteries lurking through the pages to create a captivating listen.
Dark secrets and lies revealed in tiers leading into the ending with a earthquake twist.
Character's are compelling with complex personalities.
I loved how each chapter begins with a quote and music.

OH MY GOLLY GOSH! This ends with a crackajack of a bombshell cliffhanger. Concerto North Security #2 ebook doesn't come out till May, I need the audiobook asap.

Narators Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant are both new to me. Pace, tone and pitch flowed through smoothly. Just the right amount of passion to bring the narrative alive.

Great Read

Overture (North Security #1) was a great read by Skye Warren. Samantha is a violin prodigy who will be going on tour after graduating. She also hides the fact that she harbors feelings for Liam, her guardian. He has custody of her for six years and hides how badly he wants her. He will do anything needed to keep her safe. I really enjoyed reading Samantha and Liam's story and can't wait to read more by Skye Warren.

The sweetest taboo

I am a huge music lover, and this sweet taboo was music to my ears! Liam North takes on the responsibility as guardian to child violin prodigy, Samantha Brooks after the untimely death of her father. Their relationship is not one of parent/child but more protector/child in the beginning, and as time went on, their dynamic changed. Now coming up to her 18th birthday, graduation and a world tour, Samantha is trying to come to grips with her attraction to Liam. conflicted as his priority is her safety and with her past, there is a definite need of protection. Will they give in to the passion? Will Samantha remember her past? The shocking ending is quite the cliffhanger and leaves me wanting to know what will happen next. It's the perfect mixture of taboo, passion and suspense, all music to my ears.

Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant are wonderful together in their narration. Hamilton breathes that conflicted feeling in Liam so perfectly, your heart will hurt. His conversational style makes you feel like you know Liam and want to help him work through is desperate attempt to stay neutral. Grant is amazing as Samantha. Though I think her voice is a little mature for a 17-18 year old, she gives the inflection of defiance and yearning strength that Samantha has. Her passionate voice has that desperation Samantha feels as time gets closer to her tour. It's a great listen and leaves you looking for more.

Taboo Love

I am still coming down from the emotion this book put me through. This was my first Skye Warren book and I am craving more especially book 2 to this series. Be aware this is a cliffhanger, I was not but so glad I listened. This is a story of a young girl that is a violin prodigy and he is in the custody of a man 16 years her senior that took the job as her protection after her father died expediently. He and his brothers run a security company but his main priority for the last 6 years have been protecting Samantha as well as allowing her the opportunities to plan her music. He isn't her substitute father, not in any way even though he is her legal guardian. As she nears 18 and will be out from under his guardianship and set to leave his home he starts to have other feelings besides protection for Samantha. There is mystery and bad guys and smoldering hot moments that are intense as well as pain from past hurts that will break your heart. I am completely wrapped up in this book and series. I HATE cliffhangers but I am completely hooked with this one and chomping at the bit for book two to release in May.

Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant were amazing in this audio. Oh my the emotion they put into this book will pull you in completely. You are with Liam and Samantha and all the other great characters throughout the entire book. Loved their voices.

I received a code to listen and review this book and give my honest opinion. I loved this audio and I highly recommend it.

Liam and Samantha!

After the death of her parents at 12 years old Samantha finds herself having Liam as her guardian. Over the years she has realized that her feelings for him are far from fatherly and now that she is approaching 18, she knows that it is time to venture on her own. She has a skill of playing the violin that is unmatched so after she finishes high school she will be going on tour.

For the last six years protecting Samantha and keeping her safe is all Liam has wanted. He has a military background and owns a security business with his brothers. He knows that Samantha needs her independence but his feelings for her and his need to protect her is making it difficult to let her go.

Samantha and Liam are magic together. They have both endured tragic childhoods and are drawn to each other in a way that is too strong to deny. Secrets, suspense and heat all escalate into a cliffhanger that leaves you wanting more. I thought that the narrators did a great job at bringing the story to life. You could feel the turmoil that Liam was in as well as the change in Samantha as she went from a teenager to a woman. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Unconventional

This is the best book I have read in a long time. Liam who is ceo of North Security gets custody of Samantha brooks. On her 18th birthday Samantha shows Liam and expresses to Liam how she really feels. He gives her a going away gift, but is it truly a going away gift? The last little bit is he finds out that her father still alive. As always Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant do an amazing job bring this story alive for the readers. I hope this is not the end of this story at all.

Making Beautiful Music Together

Audiobook review. Samantha and Liam have feelings for one another but their unconventional relationship as guardian and ward make it a difficult situation to navigate. There’s a mystery surrounding how that circumstance came to be. The tension between the two is built up well.

The story is on the shorter side at 5.5 hours but the space/time is used well. The plot was interesting and kept me engaged with the right mix of suspense and tension. The secondary characters were used well to move the story forward. I can’t wait to read more about them.

The male narrator, Teddy Hamilton, did a great job with both the male and female prose. He transitioned well and the pace, tone, and pitch were consistent throughout. The female narrator, Grace Grant, did a good job with the female prose but wasn’t as strong with the male prose. She would slow down her pace significantly and made her words choppy. The effect was that it didn’t feel natural and stunted the flow of the story.

Complimentary copy received and voluntarily reviewed.

Fantastic Story & Audible Listen🎧 4.5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is one of those stories that captivates you from start to end. It is well written, with interesting storylines and characters that are complex and well developed. Liam North and his brothers are ex military and operate a security firm who handle secretive missions. He and his brothers did not have a the best upbringing, Liam is a shell of a person, who thinks he is unable to feel, love and is undeserving to receive it. Yet, 6 years earlier he took guardianship of a 12 year old girl, Samantha, who was left an orphan. Samantha is a violinists and music prodigy. She has developed feeling for Liam, but he can not reciprocate her feelings and just won’t go there because she is his ward and it is wrong. Things change on her 18th birthday but he is all wrong for her and has to let her go, let the bird fly. This story offers so much, there is drama, angst, twists, suspense, action, secrets are revealed and lines are crossed. How long can Liam deny that he does feel, that he does love Samantha and not as a guardian but so much more. Skye Warren thank you for this great story, I need the next book “Concerto” pronto, I hope it is coming out on Audible when it releases in May too.

I listened to the Audible edition, Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant are wonderful narrators and voice performers. They bring the characters to life, give them their voice, personality and attitude. Each are entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Shout out to Teddy Hamilton’s Liam, you could hear how broken of a man he was and Grace Grant’s Samantha, she had an innocence about her. Thank you for this great listen🎧

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession
