The spotlight lands on Samantha Brooks. Years of practice build to the opening night of a global tour. She plays her heart out, but there are darker forces underneath the stage.
There are eyes watching from the wings.
Liam North fights to keep her safe with every weapon he owns. She’s his greatest pride—and his greatest weakness. The danger comes from somewhere no one expected. Betrayal threatens to destroy everything he’s built. His business. His family. His life.
When the curtain falls, only one of them will be left standing.
“Swoon-worthy, forbidden, and sexy, Liam North is my new obsession.” – New York Times bestselling author Claire Contreras
“Skye Warren has crafted a gripping, sensual, and intense story that left me breathless.” – USA Today bestselling author Nikki Sloane
After finishing this book I had this intense feeling of happiness. This wasn’t because I was glad I had finished reading but because I enjoyed it so much. It’s been a long time since I had this feeing and that truly made me happy. A book like Concerto is exactly why I love reading.
Just like with the first book I loved that once again music played a big part in the story. This also made me realize I really enjoy books that are about or involve music in some way. There was so much more of everything more in Concerto than there was in the first book. More music, more action, more secrets and way more smoking hot sexual tension between Samantha and Liam.
I literally cannot stop swooning over Liam. He is the epitome of a sexy brooding hero. I love him so much. And I love him with Samantha. I’m also very happy that were lots of sensual moments between them. Way more than there were in the first book. I was not left feeling disappointed in that area. I also thought that this book had a darker feel to it. There wasn’t neccesarily anything explicitly dark that happened but it was just a feeling I had and I, of course, loved that. The stakes were definitely raised.
Another thing I loved were all the new characters that were introduced in this book. I just want books about ALL OF THEM. They were all super interesting to get to know even as secondary character. I really hope that the author will at least write a book for Josh and Bethany. I want to know more about the both of them. We already met Josh in the previous book, he’s one of Liam’s brothers but he intrigues me so freaking much. He has a couple of chapters in his point of view and let’s just say that I need more of that.
I’m aware that I say this about every new Skye Warren book that I read but this one might be my new favorite of hers. As much as I loved Overture, the first book in the trilogy, this amazing sequel really kicked it up a notch. I don’t give out five stars easily to a lot of books but Concerto definitely deserved it.
One day I had been a man with a death wish—and the next I was responsible for a twelve-year-old girl. And then she grew up into a beautiful woman. At every turn she’s been a surprise.
I touch my fingers to her temple and stroke her cheek. “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s that everything will change. Don’t worry about your future. Do this because you love it, right now. Play. Compose. Perform. Sometimes all you have is right now.”
My hand trails down her jaw, until the backs of my fingers rest against her throat. Her vocal cords vibrate as she speaks. Ripples of pleasure and pain resound through my body.
“I’m not performing right now,” she whispers.
I have her tucked into the ivy, as deep as she can go. I’m blocking her with my body—keeping her within reach, keeping everyone else away. It’s the only way I’ve ever been able to breathe.
A knot forms in my throat. “What do you want?”
Right now. The words move between us like the cool night breeze.
It shouldn’t be possible for her to live up to the image in my head, the perfection that I’ve been imagining every goddamn night. Except it doesn’t even do her justice.
She’s living breathing perfection.
Somehow, I’m leaning close. Is it only me who wants this? Her breath brushes over my lips. What do you want? I asked her. “This,” she whispers, and then she closes the centimeters between us.
Four weeks. That’s how long I’ve been apart from her.
It might as well have been four years. A lifetime of silence. The moment her lips touch mine I’m suffused with music, thousands of notes that she’s played for me, a million heartbeats.
By the time she pulls back I’m breathing hard. I can run a marathon barely breaking a sweat. Being near this woman is enough to break my body into pieces.
