Audition by Skye Warren & Amelia Wilde (Book Review)

⭐⭐⭐ (3.5 Stars)

Bethany Lewis is a beautiful and extremely determined ballerina. But when she starts receiving treats at the dance company she realizes that her past is catching up with her. Enter Joshua North, owner of North security. For Josh, Bethany’s case is personal, very personal, and he will bully his way into her life to make her safe.

We go back and forth with both main characters as we see them five years in the past and now in their current situation. I really like the ballet plot intertwined with the drama of Caleb, Bethany’s brother. However, every time the book went down a particularly interesting path the resolution was too quick to feel meaningful. In the past, we see a huge rift between Bethany and Josh, but there’s no real explanation of what happened to them in the years apart. The gun smuggling plot is a great idea that could add so much depth into the story, but it never really deepened enough to create the necessary tension. When Bethany was kidnapped the resolution came too quickly as well, and even the declarations of love and/or hate felt a bit rushed.

Overall, I think the plot and characters had a lot of potential. I did enjoy their chemistry. I just wish the book could have committed more to its storylines. It needed a few extra pages to make everything feel more meaningful.

Thank you Skye Warren and Social Butterfly PR for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review
