Okay?

Let's move to the actual story now...

I wanted to read about Harper and Christopher’s story since I met them in the book “The Knight” from the “Endgame” trilogy. Harper was Avery’s best friend and she had a strange relationships with Christopher. He was her stepbrother who was not exactly her stepbrother, but he was looking after her and he took care of her fortune.

Both men and money have a way of disappearing when you need

I must warn you up front - that cover, with its wordmark-cum-censorbar might make you think that you're about to pick up something really naughty, but you're not. This is a very tame book, and a far cry from the flock-fests that some of this author's *other* works are, so if you're looking for that, disappointment looms heavy on the horizon.



That said, I thought this was pretty okay for a freebie! I'm currently in the middle of a purge-fest

Nothing is so cold and so calculating as money in a void where love and hope had been.

The perfect novella lead in for Survival of the Richest. Now I have a good understanding of where Christopher and Harper started out, and why their relationship is where it is. I honestly ache for both of them. They are in such a tough spot, and their past makes it even tougher.

Enjoyed this read, and I’m even more excited for the book now!

5 Rage Stars!!!

This is Skye’s version of the Step-Brother trope, and let’s be honest, Skye’s version of anything is always better.



Harper and Christopher meet each other when their parents marry. At first, they hate each other…duh, they’re step-siblings. It doesn’t get better than when 2 people meet and hate each other right away. These two hate each other so much it’s delicious. Even though the marriage doesn’t last, they find some common ground and keep in contact. I love the letters that thes

Let’s just take a minute to appreciate the glorious cover. In Typical Skye Warren style, I was completely absorbed from the beginning, I seriously cannot wait for Survival of the Richest!

‘Trust Fund’ is the wonderful prequel to Harper and Christopher’s story who were first introduced in the Endgame trilogy. Harper is the rich and quirky best friend of Avery and Christopher is her over protective stepbrother. This prequel shows how they first met and why they treat each other the way they do. This definitely made me even more excited for ‘Survival of the Fittest’! It’s so good to finally know more about Harper’s mysterious stepbrother.

Good God people!! What a story!! Trust Fund was everything I want and love in a Skye Warren story. It was sexy, explosive and sets the scene for all the explosions to come in Survival of the Richest. I was seriously addicted to Harper and Christopher from the Endgame series and Escort but OMG I am ready for the fireworks to come!!

When 15 year old Harper St. Claire's father marries Christopher Bardot's mother, she could never have expected her new stepbrother to rock her world so soundly. They ha

I really enjoyed this prologue/prequel novella. It did exactly what it was meant to do, meaning it got me excited to see what will happen next to these characters. I'm intrigued!

We met Harper and Christopher in The Pawn, but now we get to hear their story. This extended prologue to their soon-to-be-released book, Survival of the Richest, was a surprise release to me, and as soon as I saw it, I immediately spent the next hour engrossed. Engrossed in falling in love with Christopher, in wanting to cheer on Harper, and in counting the days until their full story would be in my hands.

From her friendship with Avery in The Pawn, we met her best friend, Harper, and Harper’s st

I have not read this author since 2011, so when Willow Aster told me to pick up this series, I did and boy am I glad I have some time open on my reading calendar to binge read the series so far.

This was an intriguing prequel and look into the characters of book 1 which I am starting today and I can't wait to see how it will all go!

I, for one, think Christopher is full of you know what so I am excited to continue on this journey with them!

Stunning and visceral, it evokes all the right sentiments. From pity to love to despair to apathy. Skye masterfully gives us back story to the Poor Little Rich Girl , Harper St. Claire. her life swinging from Mom to Dad, penury to riches, wants to needs. Her rebellion is anticipated and expected beaches she has to suffer through the conveyor belt girlfriend of Daddy Dearest. The flavour of the season women and her constantly changing stepsiblings.

I've been waiting for Harper and Christopher's story from the moment they appeared on the page in The Pawn. Skye does not disappoint! This prologue/prequel is amazing! I'm talking attractio, chemistry, heat, emotion, and some serious twists!

I'm counting down the minutes until I have the rest of their story or at least the next part of it in my hands! No one does a prologues and prequels like Skye. I can't wait to read Survival of the Richest!

Only Skye Warren can capture me with a novella. Only her words can leave me so breathless with an exhilarating and visceral read. Trust Fund is the amazing prequel to Survival of the Richest with so much depth and emotion that absolutely leave me in stitches. A prequel to mesmerize you. A prequel to leave you craving. Trust Fund is a perfect start to a series that I am definitely going to love.

Being the daughter of divorced parents, and who, by the way, dislike each other, she lives with her mother and takes the holidays to spend time with her father. Despite being the daughter of a wealthy man, Harper can not be considered privileged. Her father pays only for her education, her mother did n

Wow!
Holy crap... this prequel was good. So, so good! I can I just say that it makes me really freaking happy that I don’t have to wait absolutely anything to dive into Survival of the Richest because it’s already sitting pretty on my kindle.
Perfect amount of information to suck you in and leave you craving more.
Can we talk about that cliffhanger??? Whoooo.... deep breaths.

Skye Warren fans have been patiently waiting for Christopher and Harper's story...well maybe not patiently...LOL But, it's finally here and it's just the beginning...it's true what they say about that fine line between love and hate.

Christopher is torn between protecting Harper and doing his duty, and Harper is torn too, but her struggle is less about duty and all about heart.

I'm all in, I can't wait to see if these two will finally get their HEA...I'm so thrilled to see how their story began.

For fans of the authors previous books this story has been greatly anticipated I know I've wanted Harper and Christopher's story.
This is a an extended prologue that is the back story to what I just know is going to be a passionate story full of angst. Even though Harper is young when they meet you can feel the chemistry and connection between them.

I can't wait to we get the full story.

This prequel is also included at the beginning of the first book so there is no need to read it separately.

It is the beginning of something good and looking forward to reading a great story.

I can't believe how much this short novel has made me feel. I swear that at the ending of the story I teared up a little. (And I don't tear up so easily). This is the first book that I read from Skye Warren and I can say that I can't wait to read her others books. The author has managed to make me attached to the characters in so little time that at the end of the book I was heartbroken for Harper. And when her hea

Since reading the Endgame series and then the Masterpiece Duet by Skye Warren I was hoping for Harper to have her own story.

Trust Fund is the prologue of her story. Oh I love this interesting and addictive beginning of her story.

Harper St. Claire is 15 years old is a gifted painter who has been hurt by many men in her short life and her billionaire father has just remarried again; from a string of divorces. But it is Harper’s new stepbrother who interests her.
