Book Description:
 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.

My Review

5 of 5 Preludes

I have to say that I waited patiently for KaSonndra to finish writing The Prelude. I dam near died waiting with anticipation for this book and boy oh boy did she not disappoint! Lord where to start this review without giving to much away. This is one of those books that will have you laughing one minute and then crying the next because it is so emotional. I am so glad this is going to be a series because these characters have so much more to say. I mean dam I sat at the edge of my seat at one point thinking HOLY HADES WTF is going on.... But man can I just say this book did it for me! Thanks KaSonndra for allowing me to read the ARC of The Prelude and be a part of your street team. 

In The Prelude we meet Erin and Alek. The two are from different worlds but not so different worlds. They are both ambitious and work driven by what they do. Erin has struggled her whole life with tragedy and so has Alek but neither of them gave up. They made sure to pursue their dreams and made sure that their hopes came to fruition. Erin grew up in the states and always wanted to be a singer and a designer. After a tragedy happened to her she decided she would go to designer school and pursue that as her main career. She ends up in Milan where she is the top student of her class and her teacher decides to open up shop with her and his designer brother. Erin is so happy and proud to have accomplished so much in so little time but she knows she must prove to fashion world that she is a great designer and she can make it in the industry. She gets her big break when a dance company needs costumes for their new show. It is this show that will change Erin's life.

Alek is a world known Maestro. He is the youngest Maestro and he loves what he does. He is known all over the world and people flock to see him and his talents. So when he decides he will help his best friend out by being the Maestro for the show everyone is excited. But first he has to see the dancers in costume to get a feel for the music. When Alek and Erin meet there is an instant attraction but neither one of them is interested in starting a relationship. For one Erin swore off dating when she was a teenager and she has never broken that promise. Yes she goes on dates but nothing more. Alek is known as a man whore. He does women and then moves on. He is definitely a play boy and does not have any intentions on settling down. But destiny wants what she wants and these two are destined to be together. It will not be easy nor will it be pretty but is anything worth loving easy to attain?

This is a story of two broken people brought together by the hearts desire to love again. What do you do when you keep looking for something that is not there? You learn to fight for it and you don't stop until you have it. This is what Alek and Erin will have to do and they will have to fight hard for what they want but in the end it will be worth it. Will Erin and Alek be together or will people and things tear them apart. This is a MUST READ for 2013!

~Team Alek and Erin all the way ~
