This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

An heiress without a cause. Two billionaires determined to claim her. And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield - the heart.  

My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan's harbor. A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy. Instead he protects me with fierce determination.  

That should have been my happily ever after, but then Sutton appeared - ruthless and seductive. He doesn't care that my heart belongs to someone else, because he's determined to win. No matter the cost.  

It's an impossible choice, but I can't have them both.

Erin Mallon's Performance is BRILLIANT! 4.5 STARS!

Nothing like having a story come to life by one of your favorite performers, and in this case I'm talking about the amazing Erin Mallon, who's just brilliant!!

Survival of the Richest is Book 1 in the Trust Fund Duet, and even though I read the complete duet, my perseption of the story have completely changed after Erin's performance, and so did my rating!! Now I can't wait lo lsiten to book 2, The Evolution of Man!!

Listening and reading are two different wonderful experiences when there is a great story and the author's nail it with the performer!! I'm not going into detail with the storyline because there had been enough spoilers and I don't want to ruin it for you guys. However, one thing I can assure you is that listening to this story is going to blow your mind!!

I can't wait to find out if Christopher, Sutton and Harper found their HEA!! I need the next audiobooks ASAP!!!

Outstanding Narration by Erin Mallon!

Overall 4 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 3-3.5 stars

I went into this book completely blind and wasn't sure what to expect. The audio version starts off with the prequel novella Trust Fund and hooked me right from the start. I became invested in Harper and Christopher and couldn't wait to find out where their story would go next. Erin Mallon was absolutely fantastic and her performance will draw you right into the story. I love both her male and female voices and continue to be impressed by her ability to convey so much emotion and feeling in her performances.

I know not everyone is a fan of love triangles, but Sutton and Christopher contrast so starkly that it felt possible and understandable for Harper to be torn in two different directions. I genuinely felt that she had a connection with each of the men. It was actually Christopher and Sutton's behavior with each other that made me the most confused. I would have loved to see more interaction between Christopher and Harper in the book. Several characters from Skye Warren's previous books make cameos though, which is a fun treat for her fans.

Not everything made the most sense at times (maybe it's just me?) and the book is filled to the brim with angst. There were definitely times that I wanted to scream in frustration at these three, but the sexy times helped ease some of that ;) I found the pacing sometimes a little slow, but towards the end, things really started to pick up. I didn't see the twists coming (that ending!) and can't wait to dive into book 2!

Poor little rich girl

Fast paced and addictive. Erin Mallon is narrator royalty in my opinion and she doesn’t disappoint here.

Skye Warren is a master of writing relatively short stories that are so full of drama, intrigue and betrayal you are on the edge of your seat the whole time. It’s one of those stories where you’re glad it’s audio because you still need to do dishes and start another load of laundry but you absolutely need to know what happens next.

You will both love and hate the characters. Your loyalties will change as the story progresses. And you will gasp WTF as a recurring mantra. I would recommend this to anyone who loves ballsy heroines, twists and turns and erotic tension.

There are tie ins to Warren’s Endgame And Masterpiece Series which can be read before but not required. Of course if you’re like me you can fangirl every time you recognize a character.

Intoxicating Love Triangle

Survival of the Richest (The Trust Fund Duet #1) is a intriguing tale that begins with betrayal. I love the history prologue that leads into the current time. Character's are compelling with complex personalities that are intriguing and you wish you could get into their heads. With a wind-swept tour of money, a twisty and scandalous narrative that interwines with a intoxicating love triangle. Just the right does of ingredients which include angst, greed, love and lust to create a ensorcelled listen.

Erin Malon naration will put you under a spell. I was able to easily distinct between the voices, including the males ones. Her performance had just the right amount of angst & passion to leap off the pages into reality.

Looking forward to listening to book two, The Evolution Of Man in The Trust Fund Duet.

Steamy hot

This book **fans self** phew! So freaking steamy. Skye Warren knocked out off the park with this one. By far, my favorite story of hers thus far.

This was a love triangle between a woman and two business partners turned friends. And it’s sizzling. Freaking scorching hot. Don’t listen near other people as you will be in a full blush. Omg. I need book 2, like, yesterday!!

Who Do I Root For? Great Story

I received this audiobook free, as an Audiobook Obsession Reviewer, for an honest review. I'm serious, I don't know who to root for, Sutton or Christopher. Glad I'm not in Harper's position. The author did a great job getting you to love both men. I can't make that decision for Harper. Maybe she won't have to make a decision. What a tangled web we weave, or should I say, Harper weaves. The story kept my interest from beginning to end. The narrator is AWESOME. Love the books she narrates. I can't say enough good stuff about her. I know if she narrates, I will love the book.

Good Listen

The story of Harper, Christopher and Sutton will keep your mind going and trying to figure them out will leave you guessing incorrectly. This story follows Harper and the decisions that she make to survive all the crazy going on with her life and the two men involved that has her unsure of what she wants and needs.

Ruthless. Lies. Secrets. Deceit!!!

I'm a big fan of Skye Warren's skilled writing. She makes her stories seems so real. The way she describes everything that's going on, you can actually see it if you close your eyes.

The three main characters are ruthless, deceitful, lies and keeping all kinds of secrets, you don't know what's the truth or who to believe. And then there's this love triangle between Harper, Christopher and Sutton it's so intoxicating, I just didn't know who to cheer for.

The narrator Erin Mallon did a wonderful job with all the characters. I'm looking forward to the second half of the (Trust Fund Duet) "The Evolution of Man, Book 2." I definitely recommend "Survival Of The Richest" for others to listen to.

Angst & Survival

This was such a great start to a new series! Harper was always given enough money for what she needed, but never anything more. Her divorced parents are constantly getting remarried leaving the stepsiblings her enemies for only a short period of time until Christopher came along. They should have hated each other with a fierce passion, but instead he protects her and she falls for him along the way. After a tragic death, there is betrayal and survival kicks in. It leads her to meet Christopher’s partner, Sutton, and she gets roped into an angst and lust filled love triangle. This book was a trainwreck in the best way possible and was filled with tension, emotions, and so much angst- I couldn’t put it down and I’m dying for the next book!
Erin’s performance for this book was outstanding! She brought every emotion and scene to life and kept me hooked until the very end.

WOW!

There's nothing I love more than a bit of angst. I love the push and the pull, the love and the hate, the need and the desire. I love it.
Skye Warren writes it.
And she writes it oh so well.

Christopher and Sutton and Harper will drag you in and hold you close and you won't want it to end.

It's intense.
It's fulfilling.
It's lustful.
It's Survival.

Survival of the Richest

Love and money are always a struggle when put together as Harper learns early on in life and will learn in many other ways through this book. There is a triangle of feeling with these three and yet they all don’t open up enough to be honest as to what they want or need. I loved listening to this story and the next will be just as amazing I’m sure!

Intense!

Survival of The Richest by Skye Warren is a jaw dropping listen! She writes twists like no other author, intrigue and sexy times. Erin Mallon is the perfect narrator for this angsty listen. She brings the characters to life with her voice and fitting emotions. I really enjoyed the imagery of her words, as I could envision so much. Thank you Audiobook Obsession for this review copy. The only thing I did not like about this book was the cliffhanger ending, but Skye was forgiven since I had The Evolution of Man ready to play and Erin narrates it too!

Wow!! This book..... It was awesome! Sky effortlessly built this word and sucked me in from the very beginning. The characters are amazing. They are flawed and damaged but you can't help but connect and love them. She painted this world so vividly. I had a very hard time putting this book down with all honestly. It wasn't about hearts and flowers but more about an emotional train wreck I couldn't turn away from. I felt so invested and literally sat on the edge of my seat just riding it out with them. It was fantastic. I was soo glad I was able to immediately jump into book 2 or i would have been crying.

Erin Mallon gave an amazing performance. I have said it before and I will say it again. She elevates any book to greatness. This book started out great on it's own so you can only imagine what it was like when Erin got her hands on it. Pure perfection. I will be raving about this book series for some time to come.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Great read/listen

Great angsty love triangle. Loved this story and these characters. Harper has a hard choice to make or maybe she won't have to decide. That cliffhanger killed me. Great characters and story. Can't wait to finish this series.
The narrator was awesome. Loved how she portrayed the characters. Great voice and talent.

A+++++ for Skye Warren & Erin Mallon!!

The Survival of the Richest I consider one of the most powerful books by author Skye Warren to date. Widely seductive and intense the lives of Christopher, Harper and Sutton draws you into their stories and for me kept me hoping they find their HEA.
Survival of the Richest is Book 1 in the Trust Fund Series and I can’t wait to read on in their story. I am learning about Narrators, Erin Mallon is becoming a fast favorite of mine. Erin’s ability to capture every scene with the voice magic that gave me goosebumps.

Harper I felt sorry in the beginning, she felt the pull for both Christopher and Sutton. You can feel Harper’s inner turmoil. Who is the better man…Past or Present?

Supporting characters are a nice balance the main characters . It is nice to recognize characters from Skye Warren’s End Games Trilogy. The characters kept me guessing I was pleasantly surprise that Christopher and Harper added Sutton a very passionate trio without a doubt. I was all in for both guys. The plot is intriguing and engaging with a few twist that kept me glued in. Skye Warren Leaves you with a cliff hanger…to come back for more.

Rated 5 Stilettos by Deb!
