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, the son of my father's latest wife. Instead he protects me with fierce determination when I need him most.

This tale begins with a fall, but it doesn't end there.

Holy drama Batman! This book is gonna grab you by the throat! This story isn't gonna let you go until maybe the end...It still has me thinking...

This is the story of Harper, Christopher and Sutton. Yeah, that's right, it's three people. And what a tangled web they weave.

Harper has a true artist soul. She is a child of divorce. She walks the fine line between her mother and her father, sharing only enough to appease both. She is fierce in her beliefs. She is a true rock star, even though she does

As much as I wanted to love this book, both of us just did not get along. There was too many cliches and lately, I've been noticing that those seem to get on my nerves the most. This (short) review will be of my own and does not take away from the fact that everyone who is thinking of giving this book a try - should do it!!

It’s in this moment that I can admit that I still want him. Still love him. That’s the only reason I could be thinking about him when another man stands right in front of me.”

I’ve been a fan of Ms. Warren’s for years, so I shouldn’t be surprised that she has once again written something totally innovative! In SURVIVAL OF OF THE RICHEST, she has created a very unique spin on the played out love triangle trope. It’s not just Harper and Christopher anymore but we now have Christopher’s busines

Wow!! Skye Warren.. holy mother of triangle filled angst!!
You had me torn the entire book. I kept swinging for one man then then switching teams to the other.
I was confused. I didn’t know who to believe. I kept reading every sentence expecting a double meaning.

Whoa. I don't even know where to start. Survival of the Richest was everything I was hoping for, more, and still not enough. I've been hoping for a Harper-Christopher coupling for a very long time and I thought (hoped) that's what I'd be getting. Until Sutton walked in. All of a sudden my allegiances and desires are all over the place. Christopher is a hard man to get a read off. He's so cold, seeing him be anything else is confusing, and not just for Harper. There were moments when I really did ...more

Reading a book by this author is a pleasure on so many levels. Deep, subconscious, beautiful levels. There are so many things to love about this story. The sharp triangle of a woman torn between an unrequited love and a new powerful man who truly pursues her. The desperate longing to be valued and loved by a man who pushes her away in a twisted sense of righteousness. The sensual awakening, the subtle layers of male pride and desire.

To me, this story goes to all those places with masterful inten

That's it, I'm tossing in the tea towel. I was buddy-reading this with my friends Shruti and MG, but after several days of struggling to maintain my attention with this book, I can't stand it anymore. I think my honeymoon period with Skye Warren is over, and I'm deleting all of her books off my Kindle except for the Masterpiece series, which is the only one I feel like finishing.

This book starts off with how Harper and her one time stepbrother Christopher met in Thrust Fund.

In Survival of the Riches four years has passed since Harper’s father died and made Christopher the executor of her trust fund. Harper is now 24 and has finished college and is visiting Tanglewood. Her mom is in remission from cancer and Harper needs some of her money to help her mother get some new cutting edge trial medicine; but she needs her stepbrother’s approval first, which he

Holy crap! This book!!! I’m trying to recall a time when Skye has written a love triangle before and coming up short. And I think I know why - the utter annihilation of feelings these three caused was devastating.
I’m not saying it’s a bleak book - far from it. But the push-pull is intense. I was firmly on #TeamChristopher going in. I challenge anyone to read Trust Fund and not be. Even through his heavy-handed protectiveness of Harper, and her love-hate for him, I could see that his intentions

There is such a thrill when meeting words by a new or new-to-you author, that new discovery, that new experience, that new everything. I’ve been hoarding a book or two by Skye Warren and even briefly met her at ApollyCon this past March. Now that I’ve finally met Skye Warren’s addictive words, I want ... no .... need more.

I’m only feeling. Only falling and letting him catch me, as if were meant to do that forever.

Survival of the Richest was a story jam-packed with angst and delicious tension. Through her seductive and thoroughly captivating writing style, Skye Warren delivers a story that will leave readers aching for more.

This book had me anxious from almost the beginning. Two seriously hot alpha dudes. One innocent heiress. I was torn between the guy I loved (who did the wrong thing IMO) and the guy I lusted (who did the right thing - but for the wrong reason) - Gah!!!!

Talk about complicated emotions. I flip flopped all over the place with this one. There were so many lies, so much deceit & best of all so much sexual tension I thought my Ipad might combust.

From art, adding another devious and wealthy man to the mix, drama, jealousy and denial to death, distance, money, rebellion and love
Harper and Christopher somehow continue to find themselves at odds..and still fighting their feelings and undeniable attraction and love.

Oh my dayz. Yet again this author has me blown away with her skill on words. I read this is one sitting as I couldn’t put it down.

This is a fantastic story. We have Harper who is a great character. We also have Christopher and Sutton, both fighting for Harper. I still don’t know if I’m on Team Christopher or Team Sutton.

This is a wonderful told story of a love triangle between Harper, Christopher and Sutton. The whole story is fab but I think my heart thumped faster towards the end.

I was not anticipating a lot of things in this book. I was not anticipating a cliff hanger. I was not anticipating actually disliking Christopher and then falling for him again. And I certainly was not anticipating Sutton. What I did anticipate, however, was a book that I wouldn’t be able to put down.

Skye Warren did it again with a story that pulled me in with softly spoken words of love and debauchery; where money and favors communicate a language all their own and power and success are part of

Skye Warren gave us a hint of the fire between Christopher Bardot and Harper St. Claire in Avery and Gabriel's series and introduced us to the mystery that was Sutton Mayfair in Escort but she honestly blew my mind in Survival of the Richest. This story had passion, fire, intensity and heat that singed my fingers while reading. I never wanted it to end.

It has been a while since I’ve read a Skye Warren book. I had forgotten how well she writes. Her books are always extremely well written, full of intelligent conversation, with subtle wit and plenty of anticipation.

This new release is a perfect example of her stellar storytelling ability. She definitely kept me on my toes wondering what’s next. Who is it going to be? When will they ever figure it out? And the ending…. Oh my gosh. Whi

Survival of the Riches by Skye Warren took me by surprise on a lot of levels. I have read Skye Warren before and always found her books to be uber sexy and well written, quick to draw me in and to want to finish in one sitting. Survival of the Riches was no different. It was very intense and beautifully written. Skye Warren is indeed an extremely talented author and even knowing that going into Survival of the Riches, I was still caught off guard by the story she penned in book one of this duet.
