Book: Survival of the Richest
Series: Trust Fund #1
Author: Skye Warren
Release date: 12 June 2018
Main characters: Harper St. Claire, heroine of the story, who’s tired of being controlled. Christopher Bardot, her former stepbrother and the only thing standing in the way of her accessing her trust fund. Sutton Mayfair, Christopher’s business partner and love rival.
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.
Why you should read it: Oh my goodness! As you may know, I’m a huge fan of Skye Warren’s work, and Survival of the Richest is no exception. I don’t often bother with love triangles, but I was really in the mood for one and then I heard about this book. So timely! The plot was engaging and full of twists and turns – Harper is in a difficult situation thanks to her controlling father and rather than roll with it, she’s prepared to fight every step of the way. I liked her spirit and her sense of fun. The chemistry between her and Christopher bubbled away in the background, but it was the brash, southern charm of Sutton who grabbed my attention. He was wicked and sexy and all those things you should probably stay away from if you want a quiet life! Yes, I want to know what his deal is and what his endgame will be. I thought this was a standalone, so I was surprised when it ended the way it did. Thankfully, there won’t be long to wait for The Evolution of Man, which is out in August – so not too long to wait.
What you may not like: This book isn’t a typical love triangle. Then again, Skye Warren isn’t your average or typical writer. There’s always a side of danger or darkness in the background. If that’s not your bag and you’re averse to a heroine enjoying the company of more than one man at a time, then this book may overload your puritanical senses! I thoroughly enjoyed not knowing who, if anyone, she’ll choose. Or will she have a choice?
Rating: 5/5 – I want more and I want it now! Please.
