Review: The Prelude (A Musical Interlude #1) by Kasonndra Leigh

Title: The Prelude (A Musical Interlude #1) 
Author: Kasonndra Leigh 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: New Adult
Publication Date: Mar 31, 2013
My Rating: ★★★★
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.

This novel contains sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for an audience at 17+ years of age.


I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Erin Angelo is a fashion designer in Milan. She is emotionally not available due to her past. Not the normal broken girl past. But a past that truly killed her spirit and the wanting to be emotionally close with anyone. Alek Dostov is a Russian maestro whom is into swinging. Yes swinging. Different read for me, but interesting! The two meet or collide when she is designing costumes for a production. Alek ends up hiring her. She sees this as a chance to put her fashion designs on the map. She will not date her boss. But, that’s what 
they all say!

There was a bit of a chase between Erin and Alek. I enjoyed this because insta-love is just not my favorite.  Their flirtatious banter was quite entertaining. The story change when Alek’s past catches up to him. I think this interested me the most. I just wanted to know more. I am guessing this is left open for a continuation of the story. If so, I am interested!

I enjoyed that the story was written from both POVs. It gave us insight into both characters. While I expected this to be your typical New Adult novel, it was not. It was full of lies, betrayal, and suspense. I could not predict what would happen next. I enjoyed this couple and I look forward to any future continuation of their story. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a different new adult read.
