This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review Erin was hired to do the costumes for Alek new production, it's her first big job and while she is excited she is also nervous. She left her home in the states after a tragic accident and has avoided any real relationships. Alek is the talented, hot playboy with a dark past of his own, the two of them start a passionate affair that goes farther than either one of them thought it would. This book was good, it had me hooked from the first chapter and I couldn't put it down till I finished the whole thing. Erin was a slightly frustrating character for me, I wanted her to be more confident in herself, I did like the changes she made throughout the book. Alek made me want to give him a hug, he seemed so broken and he hid it behind a sophisticated mask. Aleks mother was a a huge bitch, I don't think she was doing what was best for her kids, she was just a selfish hag. The story was filled with twist and turns that I kinda saw coming, betrayals, lust and violence all mixed together to form a sweet love story. The love scene were sometimes sweet and other times they were intense and darkly erotic. The Prelude had me running the gauntlet of emotions from frustration, to hope, anger, back to hope, sadness, shock and finally happiness. This isn't a lighthearted read, it's filled with deep emotions and engaging characters that have you either loving them or hating them. This is the first book I have read from this author and it didn't disappoint I am definitely going to be checking out the rest of her book.
