The Prelude review

Review: The Prelude
by KaSonndra Leigh.

Product Description

**This novel contains intense sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for an audience at 18+ years of age.**

"The Prelude is the part of a song that pulls you in, hypnotizing you with beauty."

After finishing design school six months ago, Erin Angelo left her tragic past behind in the States and started a new life in Milan, Italy. Burying the grief, silencing her demons, and living a life without any real attachments has worked well for her so far. But when Erin secures her first real job as a budding clothing designer, her controlled world is shaken to its core by the mysteriously sexy director of the local symphony.

Alek Dostov is a man who knows what he wants and how to get it. He's successful, hot, the son of a millionaire, and women all over the world flock to see one of his performances. For Alek, Erin represents the ultimate challenge: sexy, smart, and unaffected by his charms...or so she thinks. Just like Erin, Alek avoids attachments that leave him emotionally vulnerable. But unlike Erin, his pursuit of all things pleasurable is ruthless.

Knowing how wary they both are concerning any kind of committed relationship, Alek finds a way to pursue Erin, satisfying the intense attraction between them without sacrificing the freedom they both enjoy. Sometimes the deepest passion brings out the darkest emotions. And Erin finds herself completely unprepared for the forbidden world of the young maestro and his truths and even his secrets, as she struggles to deal with her own.

Music, passion, betrayal and forbidden love spun together in one of the most romantic cities in the world.

Alicia's Review

The Prelude is a lovely book. It starts five years previous when Erin's world was turned upside side and she lost so many important things to her. The loss she feels causes her to build walls around her heart so she never has to feel pain again.

Now Erin has graduated design school and has made a line of clothes to be used in a show at the local opera house. Whilst at work waiting to meet the assistant of the maestro she realises some things have gone wrong and is left in a panic. The assistant Alek turns up but ends up helping her calm her asthma attack down then leaves. 

The day of the clothes designs showing is here and problems couldn't get any worse. Erin is talked into filling in for one of the dancers who hasn't turned up. She's getting ready and having second doubts about what she's about to do. She goes in search of her assistant only to bump into the maestros assistant. She's wearing a robe and panties/knickers. The robe gets snagged on Alek's belt buckle when she falls backwards landing on her bottom. Almost naked. Embarrassing!! lol

She mortified and flees to her room only to be locked out. Alek comes to help her again and gets her in the room.

She takes to the stage and sees Alek is playing the part of maestro. Not knowing what she's meant to do on stage, she decides to close her eyes and dance to the classical music. Did I tell you she used to dance and sing? Well she's a triple threat now. She sings, dances and designs. Well she never dances or sings public since her loss five years before but she does this night and amazes everyone.

Anyhow fate keeps bringing Erin and Alek together. They have chemistry but Erin won't allow anyone close. Alek decides she's worth the chase and tries everything he can to get her into an arrangement with him. Sex with no strings attached.

The Prelude is a fun book but at times the personality changes was too far fetched. The book is written with both Erin and Alek's POV which is something I love however Alek at times came across too feminine in his thoughts. Totally different to his personality.  

A lovely romance book with heartbreak, fate, chances, love and secrets.

I give this book 4 STARS.
