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.

Great story

This book was a really good listen. Skye Warren does not disappoint. This book does end in a cliffhanger. I can't wait to read book 2. The narration is done well, and the forbidden romance aspect is handled in a more unique way. The story is in no way standard fare, and if you enjoy the genre, you will love this book. Samantha and Liam and their tragic pasts just draw you in to story, all the while you are rooting for them.

Overture

This story definitely fits the description of dark and broody when it comes to Liam. He has such a hard past to overcome that he just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Samantha has also had some hard blows in her life, but always looks to the positive side of things. These two together will be explosive in more than just the bedroom if it ever comes to pass. Quite a cliffhanger that leaves you wanting more with this one. Hopefully the next will be out soon.

Next?

More! I need more! I will be first in line for when the second audio book comes out! The wording and vocabulary of this book was beyond any I have ever read!

My only complaint about this book is sometimes I could tell if the character was saying something out loud or in thought until after the fact. Which is totally fine, didn't bother me much since the story and performances were so spot on!

Fabulous story and audio

I loved this book when I read it. Both Samantha and Liam (yum) drew me in from the start and just became more interesting as the story progressed. In this audio version the narrators, Grace Grant and Teddy Hamilton successfully capture the natures of both main characters, bringing their skills to an already great experience. Teddy Hamilton has a measured, rich style that brings both passion and thoughtfulness to the intrigue that is building behind Samantha's past and present. Grace Grant brings pace and emotion to this wonderfully talented and brave young woman. I have loved every minute of this audio and cannot wait to listen to Concerto!

I'm a fan of the forbidden

What more could you want in your romance?

Forbidden love/lust/feelings.
May/December romance.
Teddy Hamilton narrating.

Overture has all of this and so much more. It has heart and heat and lust and angst and steam. You'll be begging these two to cross that line.

Taboo just means super hot!

I was a bit worried if Overture would be too taboo for me. But it really wasn't anything icky! This audiobook is insanely hot, with a captivating storyline. A good amount of suspense, a little bit of humor, and a fantastic flow.

This is part 1 in an ongoing series, it doesn't end with an HEA.

I absolutely adored Teddy Hamilton's narration and enjoyed Grace Grant as well. Although, on my headphones, she didn't sound quite as clear as other narrators.

My Thoughts on Overture

This was one of the hottest books I've ever listened to. But not only is it super steamy, the actual plot and story line is so good. There's so much going on with the different characters, not only the main ones. I quickly got invested in what was going on and couldn't stop listening. The narrators themselves were great. Teddy Hamilton has officially moved into must listen to status. I loved the emotion in his voice. He gave a 5 star performance. Grace Grant did a really good job as well. I don't know that I necessarily believed her as an 18 year old young woman, but her performance otherwise was really good.

I cannot wait for the next book in this series. The cliffhanger is going to drive me crazy until I get more.

Great taboo story

I really enjoyed this taboo story. While this is a taboo story it was so much more than that it is also a story of one growing up all the other person growing into learning to deal with their emotions. This story dedicate job the character development and letting us get to really know the characters. The narrators I feel like only did on ok just because I feel like they didn't really give anything to the story didn't really add much. I still did enjoy the overallexperience of listening and enjoying the story and can't wait for book too. The author did a great job of setting us up for wanting more in book too.

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.

Should have been 5 stars🤷‍♀️

Sorry Teddy, you are a 10!! However the female narrator is awful. Her male voice is beyond BAD. I will never understand why Audible continues to put such incredibly bad narrators with top tier performers.
This is not the first time I have returned books narrated by her!
I love Skye Warren, so I will be reading the rest of the trilogy unless Teddy is reading both parts!!

Ugh. Blah blah.

It goes on, and on, and on, and on. Waiting, then more waiting. There was one brief sexy time 45 minutes until the end. If you’re wanting “taboo” this is not it. It’s so watered down it’s barely a romance. It’s completely unfinished. It’s the first half of a story- and sadly the boring half. Most of Sky’s books are unusually long epilogues. I’ve given her many chances to throw some action in her books and enhance the passion, but she just doesn’t. Boring. Not taboo. Would not recommend purchase.

This is a duet!

I really enjoy Skye Warren's work, but I really wish the fact that this is a duet had been divulged earlier. I mean, c'mon!

That said, this book is filled with tension and plenty of steam. I kept telling myself, "I have other things to do today..." thinking I was going to stop listening. But, I kept listening!

I recommend this audiobook, but realize this is one half of a duet, so it ends with a cliffhanger.

Beautiful Story

This is taboo at its best. It has everything I love from forbidden, angst, a bit of mystery, and the love of music. Samantha and Liam had me intrigued from chapter one. There was something about them that held me captive. The mystery and unanswered questions added to that. I also LOVED the musical quotes at the beginning of each chapter.

I loved this book!!

I really enjoyed this story. The characters were amazing and the narration was perfect.
I was a little surprised by the ending but I can’t wait to read/listen to the next book in the series.
Side note: I loved the fun facts at the beginning of each chapter!
I would recommend this book.
