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.

3.75 stars

Intriguing storyline but time jumps with no real explanation of how much time had passed was a bit confusing in the beginning. We only have one interaction with Harper and Christopher in the past along with a few short letters. I needed more on how their relationship or lack there of got to the point it did. The story had potential to be amazing if the characters were explored more in depth. I felt more why she was attracted to Sutton than to Christopher who I assume is the main H. Overall I rated it 3.75 stars because I did enjoy the story I just needed a bit more to fully fall in love.

Narration 5 stars
Erin Mallon is very talented and does a male voice really well. I do wish she would work on not making her tone sound harsh at the end of sentences.

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.

Romance with betrayal all around!

“Survival of the Richest” is the first installment of the Trust Fund Duet. I was engaged right from the preface, as the author gives a glimpse into Harper and Christopher’s history, and how a drastic turn of events changed their friendship into a story of control and betrayal. I loved the tenacity and strength in Harper, and how she continually challenged the barrier that Christopher put up, and fought for what she believed in. The addition of Sutton added quite the intrigue, as a love triangle formed and Harper warred between her feelings in reaction to the unusual actions of these two men—eventually discovering their truth and that was a twist I did not see coming! I look forward to the conclusion of this angsty tale, hoping there can be a happily ever after for all. Narrated by the talented Erin Mallon, I truly enjoyed her performance as she’s a master of both female and male voices. She truly brings out the personalities of the characters, making you feel right along with them.

Erin Mallon is Superb in this Drama-Filled Story!!

Survival of the Richest is book one in the Trust Fund Duet and I was sucked into this story line that was chock full of drama and an engaging story line and I was continually wondering where the story was going to go.

Harper is at the mercy of Christopher, who manages her trust fund at the wish of her father who passed away. Although she is extremely wealthy, the money can't actually be accessed until a certain age and none of it can be used for her mother, who she wants to help take care of, and who at one point gets sick and needs care. Prior to this development, Harper had feelings for Christopher, and maybe still does despite his new role in her life. When she hunts him down looking for his help, she meets his business parter Sutton, which complicates things a little more because they also hit it off, and now Harper seems to have feelings for both Christopher and Sutton which makes things both tricky and hot....

I absolutely loved Skye Warren's North Security Trilogy so I was really excited to dive into this duet. It was definitely different than the trilogy I had read, and while I am not really a fan of love triangles, I did find this story interesting and I am excited to start book two and see where the journey takes Harper, Christopher and Sutton.

I am a huge fan of Erin Mallon. Her voice is really pleasant to listen to and she has a gift in the ability to narrate both female and male parts of the story well. I think she did an amazing job with this book and I look forward to listening to more of her work. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Choices, choices, choices

Imagine having two handsome billionaires fighting over you. That is the situation Harper is in. In a way Christopher is taboo. Even though they are not blood related, it still seemed taboo to me. But Christopher and Harper's feelings are deeper than a sibling love. Sutton will stop at nothing to win Harper over. This love triangle is intense and so fun to follow. I loved all the different dynamics of these three. This story had me hooked from the first chapter.

Erin Mallon is an amazing narrator. Ms. Mallon brings this story to life. Ms. Mallon keeps all the characters voices distinct and easy to follow. Her male voices are smooth and perfect for the characters as I imagined them. Ms. Mallon's narration enhanced this story. I look forward to hearing more from Ms. Mallon.

Loved it!

Skye Warren knows how to write books that keep the readers engaged and Erin did an amazing job narrating! It does have a cliff hanger but Skye and Erin did such an amazing job bringing the story to life that you can’t wait to read/listen The Evolution of Man!

Triangle

When Harper’s father died he leaves her a large trust which is controlled by Christopher, who Harper also has a crush on. The two are constantly at odds on the distribution of the money which frustrates Harper since it’s her money.
Harper meets Sutton, a sexy billionaire who lets Harper know how much he wants her. Sutton and Christopher are competitive and Christopher makes Harper question whether Sutton really wants her. Harper’s feelings for Christopher are strong but she also has feelings for Sutton which leaves her confused.
Survival of the Richest was a great intro to this duet. I can’t wait for book 2.
Erin Mallon’s narration was perfect.

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.
