Hey all: Today I am giving my review on Survival of the Richest by Skye Warren.
*An arc was provided by author through Social Butterflypr.
Survival of the Richest, an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren, is available NOW!
An heiress without a cause.
Two billionaires determined to claim her.
And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield–the heart.
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. Instead he protects me with fierce determination.
That should have been my happily ever after, but then Sutton appeared–ruthless and seductive. He doesn’t care that my heart belongs to someone else, because he’s determined to win. No matter the cost.
It’s an impossible choice, but I can’t have them both.

💭 My Thoughts 💭
Survival of the Richest…. engrossing, devious, exciting, sexual.
The rich girl that wasn’t so much a rich spoiled girl but a girl that fought for injustice in her own way. She stood by her mom even when her mom didn’t make the best choices. Her dad had his ways but he loved Harper. It was admirable that Harper stuck to her love for art and didn’t let her father deter her from her passion.
The storyline had me engrossed I was routing for Christopher and Harper to be together. Then in walked Sutton and everything turned upside down. It seemed that Harper became more manipulative, she was trying to get Christopher’s attention but what a way to do it.
I liked her character but then I became confused. She was naïve when it came to Sutton. I found Sutton to be a user. Harper wore blinders and she didn’t want to see the truth. In some ways I think it became a game for Harper, but it was a game where she was only lead to believe she was in control but in all honesty, she wasn’t.
So many mixed emotions for me especially towards the end. I liked Harper but I was disappointed in her at the end.
Overall even though I became disappointed in Harper in the book was well written and was an engrossing read.
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
My body heats at the words, at the remembered pleasure of Sutton’s mouth on my sex. Christopher looks down at me, as if he can feel the heat emanating from between my legs. His expression turns stark, as if he’s in pain. That’s only fair, because I’m in pain too.
“You deserve better than that,” Christopher says, but there’s no way to pretend he’s talking about Sutton. He’s talking about himself and we both know it.
“He gives me what I want, which is something you might try next time you like a girl.”
“It wasn’t that,” he says, harsh again.
“No?” I step forward and place a hand on his chest, feeling the way his heart beats strong and fast. He may want to be unaffected by me, but he isn’t. I tilt my face up toward him.“You didn’t imagine me naked in the cabin later?”
He sucks in a breath.“You were too young then.”
My words come out as a whisper.“What about now? Will you do what Sutton said—imagine me in this dress when you go home after this?”
“It’s not fucking decent,” he says, even though the silk covers every part of me. It’s a perfectly respectable dress, when it’s not hitched up around my waist.
“You can thank Sutton for this,” I say, because it’s true. He’s the only reason I lean forward and place my lips against Christopher’s, touching them in some terrible attempt to show him what he gave up, to prove to myself that I don’t care about either of them.
Christopher sucks in a breath. For a second I think he’s going to pull away. He stiffens and grasps my hair with his fist. Easy enough for him to stop the kiss. Instead he dips my head back and deepens it, exploring my mouth with his teeth, his tongue. Opening me wider until I whimper. Pulling me close until I can feel how hard he is beneath his slacks.
His other hand fists in the gauze of my dress, and I realize he’s holding me with both hands clenched—one in my hair and one in my clothes. I don’t know whether he’s doing it so he doesn’t have to touch me or because it’s a way to control me without bruising me. He uses both hands to tug me closer; I’m pressed so tightly I can’t imagine getting away.
Where Sutton had been raw sensuality and playfulness, Christopher is pure determination. He kisses me like he’s a conquering army, like I’m made of gold he has to grasp—or lose forever.
