Colin Hoskins, famous classical violinist, is tainted by his past. Angry at life, unable to move beyond the betrayal of his dead fiancé, he’s sworn off performing or falling in love ever again. All Colin wants is to be left alone, except no one listens. Especially the pretty little assistant he can’t fire and his body burns to claim.

Stranded in a foreign country, bankrupted heiress Ariel Parks needs a job to fund her way home. Assistant of sorts to the musician she’s fantasized about for years sounds like a dream job. She never imagined the gorgeous genius would be a reclusive beast. But the real problem is the way every nerve in her body tingles at the mention of his name.


Review:  Ariel’s Song is the first book In Bed with the Enemy series by Evie Knight. I chose this book because I have not read this author before and the story was different than I expected it to be based on the title.

Colin Hoskins is a rich and famous classical violinist. He battles his past and his angry with life. He is obsesses with how his fiancé died and wants to find out who killed her. Colin continually battles those around him to be forgotten. He wants to disappear from the public eye.

Ariel Parks is in the UK when she finds out there is almost no money left in her trust fund. She needs to find a job quick as well as her brother who has disappeared. She stumbles upon a job working for Colin Hoskins as his assistant. However the more time she spends with him the more she falls in love with him.

The chemistry between Colin and Ariel is blistering. Both Colin and Ariel could feel the attraction from the moment they lay eyes on each other. I loved watching the fact that they had a hard time keeping there hands off the other. The sex scenes were hot and spicy.

The biggest issue I had with the book was it was hard to follow Colin’s mood swings. In addition, if Ariel does not have a permit to work in the UK how can she work for Colin and fund her way home? The main and secondary characters were interesting. The story was interesting. Overall, this was an enjoyable story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
