Overture is a forbidden story of Samantha and her guardian, Liam. She is a musical child prodigy when Liam took her in when her father mysteriously died. Samantha has questions that only Liam can answer. The story is sexy, emotional and so good. I love the little musical tidbits before each chapter. Another brilliant story from Skye Warren. Review copy was received for a honest opinion.

3.5 Stars 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.

A forbidden love story that is so damn HOT and so damn GOOD. Not only is it beautifully written, but it is tastefully done. Liam and Samantha's story is so steamy, so explosive and so addicting all in one. The secrets, sexual tension, and the suspense was down right torturous. I couldn't turn those pages fast enough. That cliffhanger though...WOW!!! This is a can't miss read. Happy Reading Everyone!!!

When it comes to dark romance, I trust Skye Warren. Even under the most concerning of circumstances, she somehow makes me care deeply for her characters and understand the choices they make, even if I'd be running away from them in real life. So I was a little worried about how this age-gap romance between a ward and her guardian would be handled but I trusted Skye would see me through and she certainly did. One of my favorite parts of this story was the undercurrent of music. Skye is especially gifted at weaving symbolism into her plots and I loved how this played out. Pun intended. Samantha is a violin prodigy. Her talent has saved her in some very real ways and now it's about to take her away from her guardian Liam as she leaves to go on tour after graduating high school. She's ready to spread her wings and fly but leaving means the end of a relationship with Liam. He's been her guardian for the past six years since her neglectful father died and she doesn't believe he'll want any contact once she turns 18. Liam, on the other hand, is fighting his feelings for Samantha as much as she's fighting hers for him. But of course, they eventually succumb. While I would have liked a little more discussion about their power dynamics—turning 18 isn't enough to mitigate that—I really liked what they meant to one another. Liam is in awe of Samantha and her talent and while he believes she deserves better than him, he has a hard time resisting her. And Samantha is so clear about what she wants! They had palpable chemistry and this made for some sexy scenes. But of course, this is a Skye Warren novel so there are some dark forces at work against Liam and Samantha. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat and I cannot wait to see where she takes the story in the second book. CW: references to pedophilia by a coach, car crash, violence, references to death of a parent, parental neglect Disclosure: I received an advanced copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Overture by Skye Warren is the story of Liam North and Samantha Brooks. Liam took in Samantha when she was around 12 years and became her legal guardian. Now Samantha is turning 18 years old and will be off on tour for her music. Samantha has feelings that go beyond a guardian for Liam and is torn between them. Liam knows it is wrong to feel the way he does for Samantha especially with the secrets he keeps. For me this was a page turner...I am such a fan of Ms. Warren's writing. I just loved this book and looking for more book by this author.

Overture is sweet and steamy and frustrating and breath-taking!! If you like slightly taboo and older man/younger woman books then you will love this one! You are drawn into the story and it's there where you want to stay. I could almost hear the music Samantha lives and breathes when she plays her violin. I definitely recommend this book and I whole-heartedly look forward to the next book. You don't need me to tell you what the blurb just told you, so I think you should take my advice and one-click this captivating book! Enjoy!!

Liam and Samantha, they are, well, they are both broken. Not a little, but more than they should be. Because of their fathers. Because of their childhoods. Because life just isn’t giving them any breaks along the way. Even as fate put them together, they continue the damage. To each other. Not maliciously, not with intent t harm. With intent to protect. To protect themselves, from the other. To protect the other, from themselves. And then it all becomes clear. The truth doesn’t always set you free. Sometimes the truth makes you lose everything you want. Everything you hold dear, need to live. Sometimes, the truth hurts, and makes you a target. Luckily, the truth is being held back by Liam, even when Samantha thinks she has it all figured out Thrilling, yet quiet. Sweet, yet shrouded. Soothing, yet heart pound. This story weaves, twists, and turns, but it stays in one spot. Loved it, and the end came too quickly, was too surprising, and sucked the air out of the room when it was revealed. It has left me in high anxiety wanting the next book, and the conclusion!

Enjoyed this overture! Overture is just that - an introduction to the of the world & characters of Liam & Samantha. Theirs is a forbidden love as they are guardian/ward with an age difference, so if that does not appeal to you then you might not like this book. But I love a good forbidden relationship! The author created Liam & Samantha with a rich history & sizzling chemistry that made me root for them & feel for them both. The author weaved a tale of espionage, secrets, love with a twist ending that left me wanting to have the next book now!

Nope! Not like this! Overture is the first book in the new series North Securities and what a way to begin what looks to be a very intense and at times taboo series Liam and Samantha - I am a bit speechless when it comes to these two. Taboo takes on a whole new meaning He is her guardian - She is his temptation - The forbidden flower that has blossomed What happens when the universe allows for a brief taste of the forbidden? When for a moment in time there is No right, No wrong, only the chance to indulge your cravings without shame? An Overture is created - One that will rival the greatest compositions ever composed Be warned this may cause a sense of unease followed by moments of apprehension and bursts of angst - Oh and let us not forget the taboo romance that will melt the coldest of hearts This does end on a cliffy - No tantrums
