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.
I was so excited to start this new book by Skye Warren. She’s one of my favorite authors and I always try to read her newest book. And wow… I was pretty much blown away by Survival of the Richest. It was so freaking good that I couldn’t put it down and finished it in one sitting. That’s something I almost never do, which only shows how much I enjoyed the story.
I read the prequel Trust Fund before reading this one where I met the characters of Harper and Christopher who were stepsiblings for only a few months. I thought I had figured out where the author would go with the story but I could’t have been more wrong when Sutton entered the story in Survival of the Richest. Even though Harper has had feelings for Christopher for years, she felt intantly attracted to Sutton. And that’s where the tug and pull began for me. You could say this is a love triangle but it isn’t an ordinary one because it was all pretty complex with both the men and Harper.
I absolutely loved Sutton right from the start. I actually wasn’t the biggest fan of Christopher in the prequel and a large part of the book because I was so smitten with Sutton. But I could see how Harper had complicated and mixed feelings about the both of them. There were quite a few sexy moments with the both of them and also one big and hot scene that actually caused me to drop my jaw. So yeah. There’s no lack of steam in the story. Although I must say it isn’t all sexy times and the chemistry between the character, it also involves a library that might or might not be torn down. As a reader I really liked how Harper took it upon her to try and save it.
The ending of the story surprised me because again I thought I knew how it would end. Silly me. Actually the through the whole book I kept being surprised at the twists it all took. I thought I was very much team Sutton but the ending has me leaning more towards Christopher now. And as this is a duology I’m guessing we’ll find out who Harper picks in the end when the next book is releaeses, which I’m so excited for. I can’t wait! Also, the appearances of some characters from the author’s other books were really nice. Especially Blue, who’s my favorite guy!
Overall, Survival of the Richest ended up being one of my favorite books by Skye Warren. The story was very steamy, complex and the cliffhanger ending made me want more. It was definitely a rollercoaster of emotions but I loved every bit of it.
