4 star Review Audition by Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde AUDIO REVIEW: Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde are relatively new authors to me, and why that is I have no idea. There was plenty to tug at the heart strings in this story, as Joshua North and Bethany Lewis struggle with their feelings and attraction. Joshua will do anything to protect Bethany her from the danger that surrounds her. There were some surprising twists and turns in Audition. Josh is determined to take what he wants and he wants Bethany with a fierceness that surprises even him even with the history between them. Josh and Bethany are two broken souls who are drawn to each other and really are each others soul mates. There is so much passion, angst and anger listening to this book and the narrators Mari and Alexander Cendese did an admirable job in conveying it well. It is a well written story of hope, courage and determination.

Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde kept me on my toes through this entire novel. I have been feeling this push pull between Josh and Bethany since Samantha and Liam. I enjoyed learning about the earlier relationship between Josh and Bethany. Warren and Wilde created really interesting flash back jumps. I think my main reasoning behind a star removal is I would have loved a bit more development between during the here and now. I've been a fan ok Skye Warren for years now. I'm not too sure if I've read or listened to Amelia Wilde. However, besides a few areas that I felt like could have benefited for more information Audition was a captivating story. I'm always so fascinated when two authors are able to blend their writing with one another so completely. I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

Bethany and Josh. Josh and Bethany. I mean, we saw them together in the previous trilogy in the series, but who knew? Who knew they had a past together? Who knew that they shared, albeit varied, but similar, childhood traumas? Who knew they were made for each other, fit the broken pieces of the other, to perfection? Well, now I know, and I am so glad that I got to know them! This was a silent, stealthy, story. No great highs, no deep lows, but lots happening. The story continually moves forward, revealing a bit here, a bit there, some from the past, some from the present. A little bit of this, a smattering of that, and then it builds, and builds, and the crescendo happens. But that isn’t the finale of the story, oh no. After the build up, the big moment, it settles back down, and moves forward some more. Then, when all seems set, all is quiet, it snaps into place, and it is then you realize, this is the moment you didn’t even know you were waiting for. It took Josh by surprise, it validated Bethany, and it brought all the moments before it to clarity. It made the characters whole, and their story together could start!
