Ambitious. Intense. Irresistible.

The Evolution of Man, the stunning conclusion to the Trust Fund Duet by New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren, is LIVE!

TheEvolutionOfMan-1600x2400

I never wanted to fall for man.

And definitely not two men.

They tear me apart until I don’t know how I’ll ever be whole again.

Until I’m not sure I want to be. How can I choose between two halves of myself?

THE EVOLUTION OF MAN is the second novel in the USA Today bestselling duet, which begins with Survival of the Richest.

REVIEW: 5 STARS

The Evolution of Man was an emotional and seductive conclusion to the Trust Fund Duet. With her captivating writing style, Skye Warren gives readers an unforgettable story of finding strength through love.

I expected this story to be full of angst, but I wasn't expecting the level of emotion that it involved. Harper was a woman practically drowning, trying her best to grasp on to something to pull her up. The story picks up six months after the end of the first book, and things have changed for her significantly. The book dealt with a sensitive and difficult subject, and I think here is where Warren excelled the most in this story. The emotional elements practically come to life through the words on the pages. I felt Harper's pain and her desperation on a deep level. And when it came to the two men in her life who pulled her in different directions, I felt the turmoil and uncertainty that plagued her so strongly.

The flow of the book was fairly fast-paced, and the writing was exquisite. The intimate scenes were well done and balanced evenly throughout the story. There were a couple of twists that were well placed and changed the course of Harper, Christopher, and Sutton's journey. It's hard to write a review about a story like this without giving away spoilers, but I will say that I felt Harper ended up with the man she was meant to be with. Warren gave her readers a story that was both heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. She will always be one of my go-to authors and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.

Excerpt:

“Good evening,” he says, as casually as if he saw me last week instead of six months ago. “Christopher,” I say, in case he hasn’t noticed. A table like this is reserved for VIPs or very special guests. Or ones with deep pockets. “This is the chef’s table. We’re sitting at the chef’s table in Koi.” “Is that good? I thought they just ran out of regular tables.” “Did you just make a joke. Oh my God. You did.” The chef chooses that moment to introduce himself, a rather effusive man with a comforting smile and a thick Japanese accent. He says he’ll forgive that we drink champagne as long as we try the sake pairing he sends with every course. And he personally serves the amuse bouche, a tuna sashimi lollie on a fennel cilantro salad with ponzu dressing that makes me moan despite myself. “Dear God,” I say when we’re alone again, my eyes still closed with the wonder of that single bite. There’s salt and citrus, and basically this is what heaven tastes like. “Did you spend all two billion dollars to get this table? Because it’s worth it.” When I open my eyes Christopher is watching me, a strange expression on his face. He hasn’t touched the plate in front of him. He seems more interested in the way that I dip my finger in the ponzu dressing and lime foam to savor the last drops. I’m not sure that love is on the table, but if the glitter in his eyes is anything to go by, sex is definitely an option. “One billion,” he says, almost absently. I blink. “What?” “Only one billion is mine. The other half belongs to Sutton.” It’s like a bucket of cold water dumped over my head. “Why did you bring me here?” One dark eyebrow rises. “You’re the one who insisted we meet in person.” “And you’re the one who brought me here.” The long pause that follows isn’t filled with hearts and roses. He does not secretly love me, and I feel like a fool for even considering the possibility. Because he took me out to dinner? It’s really a good thing I don’t date much, because I’m terrible at it. “I invested in the restaurant,” he says finally. “It helps to have your take.” “Because I have such a refined palate?” “Because you were born rich,” he says, his voice flat. “You know what rich people like.” It takes my breath away, and I’m left staring at him with the most incredible taste on my tongue. That’s all I am to him? A rich girl with nothing better to do with my time than give him advice on his new restaurant? Meanwhile I was gullible enough to think he actually wanted to spend time with me. It isn’t right. It isn’t fair, but then Christopher Bardot has never played fair.
