5-stars+ ~ Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse at KindleFriendsForever

I honestly didn’t think Warren would be able to surprise me even more than she'd already had in Overture, but with her wicked penmanship, she’s done it again and very well indeed. Ooh my, the surges of exuberance and angst in vividly described scenes had me sitting on the edge of my seat, and the cliffy... it’s excruciatingly frustrating.

Skye Warren literally did it to me AGAIN.

The more I step into the world that Samantha and Liam live in, the more emotional and distraught I become. But not in a bad way, no! Skye Warren has a talent in taking what could’ve been simple forbidden love and manipulating and crafting it into something TWISTY and EXHILARATING.

Overture was an amazing read that went above and beyond my expectations when coming in for the first time. Concerto has completely FLOORED me. The

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 everythi

My amazement has just reached the next level. I’m not joking. I got so caught up in Samantha and Liam’s story that I can’t think about anything else. I’m enchanted by Skye Warren’s words, like a fan of classical music is enchanted with the sounds of instruments and I can’t wait for the grand finale to give the author a standing ovation. Concerto is full of suspense, surprising twists and passion pours out of the pages of this incredible book. Sit down comfortably, because you will not be able to ...more

"He was more than my guardian- he was the axis around which I spun."

Concerto was a sexy and suspenseful story that continues Liam and Samantha's passionate journey. This book was even more intense than the last one, filled to the brim with raw angst and explosive suspense.

"A violin is not a thing- not to someone who plays like me. It's moody and emotional and mysterious. That's what Liam is to me."

Wow! This was an extraordinary second book in the North Security trilogy. From the very beginning the angst is like a music string being tightened as it’s being tuned. The angst ratcheting and the passion exploding. Concerto has all the elements of an extraordinary romantic suspense story. Simply gripping. A lot sinful!

My heart really can't take the torture anymore. I have been holding breath throughout Concerto by Skye Warren. My heart has stopped and started so many times that I can't count. Concerto was an almost religious experience for me. The music flowed from the pages to my body. The devastating passion and heartbreaking emotions were too intense and just perfection.

This story is so much more than an age gap forbidden romance between the violin genius and the special force security specialist. This is

Three things that go great together; music, love and sex!  Concerto is the second book in this trilogy, and it is unbelievable.  Overture is a must read to follow along in Concerto but… oh the story line is amazing.  With great characters and a lot of action this book is a real page turner and is impossible to put down!  Concerto is more than 5-stars worth of reading and I highly recommend it.

This book was so good – I mean, it was, I need to sleep and am so tired, but I stayed up until 4 am to finish it good. You know in a trilogy, the second book is sometimes that wonderful creamy centre, big on decadence, high on gooey goodness, but without a lot of substance to fill you up? Yeah, the is NOT the case here, because this book is better than the first, this book doesn’t even feel like it is in a trilogy, it is a complete, hair-raising, edge-of-your-seat-sitting, make-you-squirm-in-all ...more
This is so much more than I could have imagined. Overture and Concerto are two masterpieces in a row.

I really found myself loving every word, every scene. Beautiful writing, haunting even, especially when exposing the keen poetry of music and violin performances, or the bittersweet tragedy of impossible love.

How can a writer manage to make an intimate scene both lustful and sacred?

I’ve been vibrating with sensual energy all throughout the pages. Atmospheric, this second part is intensely felt, a

Concerto is the second book in the North Security Trilogy. The story of child prodigy violinist Samantha and guardian Liam North picks up from their separation in book one ‘Overture’.

Although the pair have previously acknowledged their feelings, Liam has never been able to accept them being together. The age difference, their guardian/ward relationship and the secrets he’s been carrying keeps them apart.

3.5 stars!!

So like with book 1, Overture, this book goes nowhere in terms of the supposed or expect love story between Liam and Samantha.

There is angst. There is also hella smut — I was very happy about it before steam level was really off the charts!

But I still had that empty feeling that their story is just getting started.

It’s probably because they make one step forward and two back the whole time. Pretty annoying (at least to me as a reader) because they are freaking denying what they both

After that ending in Overture I have been on pins and needles waiting for the opportunity to read Concerto, the much anticipated follow up to book and let me just say it did not disappoint. Samantha and Liam and their connection had the powerful punch Skye Warren's book always pack as it left me gasping for air and wanting more in the same breath.

Not the ending I was looking for... plus I think another book to come??
I try to stay away from series. I don’t always have the time to go back and read books that I’ve missed. However, I love the writing talents of this author and I really wanted to see what’s happened in this next installment.

A story of a May to December love that was quite scandalous and forbidden. A barely legal love affair to remember is what this series is all about.

Audiobook review. I think my chief complaint with this series is going to be the build up. It’s not necessarily a bad thing but the anticipation for seeing how Samantha and Liam figure themselves out is KILLING me.

I like seeing how Samantha is building her confidence and growing. Liam seems to be hot and cold yet more sure of his feelings despite that. There’s an added twist in this book that added a stronger suspenseful element and hiked up the action.

After the way I fell in love with Overture, the delicious slow burn forbidden romance that marks the start of the North Security Series, I was highly anticipating the follow up book. Skye Warren, with her wonderful prose, brings passion and emotion into Concerto. She also raises the suspenseful vibe of a few degrees!

Concerto was full of mystery and secrets that needed to be discovered. I loved how Samantha changed from the first book to the second. In this particular book, she was bold and faced the danger and her fears. 👍 I have no idea what the next book will bring, but please don’t hurt anyone anymore. Because the last part of the book was

Concerto follows violin prodigy Samantha Brooks right down the rabbit hole as she embarks on her first world tour. Finally aging out of Liam North's custody, the forbidden longing that's burned between her and her guardian evolves into something not quite as taboo as it once was but certainly just as complicated.

Concerto is book 2 in the North Security series and should only be read/listened to after Overture. Samantha and Liam's story picks up pretty much where book 1 left off, but overall there isn't a lot of action in the book. There's still angst galore in this taboo age gap romance, but it felt like the majority of the book was spent diving into the emotions and getting to know some of the supporting characters.

I sit here in amazement, in such awe as I devoured the highly anticipated second book in the North Security Series, Concerto, by Skye Warren.

I absolutely needed this book and now it’s here and I love this beautiful world that Warren has created! It’s addictive, page-turning, and you will NOT be able to put this book down for one second!

What Warren writes is pure magic, so poet, and magnificent!

Skye Warren has left me stunned with Concerto. She has me so captivated with this trilogy that I don't want it to end.

I purposely drug out reading this book - it was such a delicious, slow torture for me. It is so enthralling and Skye delivers so much in this book, I could feel myself wanting to devour this book in one sitting but kept myself from doing so.

Concerto is wrapped in sexiness, suspense, tension, passion and twists that I never saw coming. This book is so full of life
