Samantha Brooks stands onstage as the curtain rises. Her dreams are coming true. She doesn’t know her nightmare is coming too.
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.
“Intriguing, dark and flirting with taboo, this sexy read left me wanting more!” –Lynda Aicher, USA Today bestselling author
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.
So here we go again. Anxiously waiting to see what is going to happen with Samantha and Liam. In Overture, we got that slow burn, taboo romance that kept you wondering what was going to happen. In Concerto, it isn’t slow burn anymore because we know where they both stand but now they have to be apart in order for Samantha to find herself and become the woman she is meant to be. That doesn’t mean that Liam isn’t around. He’s there, silently watching and protecting her.
I was excited to get some of that good ol’ Warren twists that keeps me coming back to her books. While she normally throughs them into her darker series, it worked perfectly here. I never knew what was going to happen between the two of them, which I enjoyed.
Staying within the story, Concerto is just as sexy and naughty as the first book. Seriously, I’m thinking I need to pick up that long forgotten musical instrument I used to play and start playing again. Just to find me a Liam.
I’ve enjoyed this series and look forward to what will happen next. WE NEED TO KNOW!
