Highly Strung by Justine Elyot

If music be the food of love, no wonder orchestral life is so passionate.

The new violinist with the Westminster Symphony Orchestra knows she shouldn’t have a crush on its glamorous leader, Milan Kaspar, but Lydia just can’t help wanting a piece of the arrogant Czech virtuoso. Capturing his attention by refusing to play along with his plans for the orchestra, she soon finds herself drawn into his bed—a bed he shares with lovers of both sexes. But Lydia wants more than wild and inventive sex—she wants to get behind Milan’s sophisticated veneer, to find the man inside the performer. She seems doomed to failure, until a trip to his home country changes everything…

Reader Advisory: This book contains ménage relationships, bisexual characters and exhibitionism/voyeurism, plus some scenes of angst.

Publisher's Note: This book has previously been released by Totally Bound Publishing. It has been revised and re-edited for re-release.

Milan and Lydia's story is somewhat jumbled. You start with Milan causing issues for the orchestra that they both work for. He wants something and in order to achieve his goal, he is just a bully and has very toddler-like behavior. He is also very free with his sexuality and because of that, he has a lot of partners.

Then you have Lydia. She seems incredibly naive in this story. She is also quite forgetful and seems very dumb at times.

Then you have Milan's longtime lover, Evgeny, and the new interest for Lydia, Mary-Ann. Evgeny was so whiny and immature – he was petty and horrible. Not only did I hate him, I thought that he detracted from the story without really adding much. Then you have Mary-Ann and she also seemed like an afterthought – she didn't really add substance to the story.

So, while I didn't love the story, the author did leave you hanging and wanting to know how Milan and Lydia's story will end.
