Overview

For fans of New York Times bestselling authors Samantha Young, Sylvia Day, and E. L. James comes the stunning, erotically charged story about a woman who's not looking for love and the tempting billionaire who left her breathless . . .

As a gifted opera singer, Allegra Orsini's only obsession is music-until she meets him. A strikingly handsome and powerful man with a life splashed across the tabloids, Davison Cabot Berkeley isn't what she expected. He's unlike the other wealthy patrons who dine at Le Bistro. Davison sees more than just a coat-check girl working her way through grad school. And from the moment he looks at her, those deep green eyes ignite a fire inside Allegra she's never felt before.

She craves Davison's touch-his possession-endlessly. Even though every fiber of her being is telling her to stay away, that it's best for both of them, she can't. As his passion consumes her, Allegra can no longer deny Davison's hold on her. He'll never let her go. But as much as she wants him, Allegra can't surrender to his love-not until she faces a painful secret from her past that could destroy them both . . .

    Disappointed

    There was no developement between the characters they just met and then boom everything just rushed from there. I felt the begining was like starting in the middle of the story, there really wasnt no intro or developement start. Story switches constantly. I feel like everythings rushed and under developed only made it to page 64 and cant read more. The aurthor had so much potential but just fell short to me.

    As a born & bred New York City gal, I love discovering autho

    As a born & bred New York City gal, I love discovering authors who set their breathtakingly sexy romances in my Big Apple backyard! Sofia Tate's debut novel, Breathless For Him, captures my wild, maddening, beautiful, diverse City with marvelous breadth and humor and terrific detail. Allegra Orsini is an opera student, making ends meet as a coat check girl at an upscale NYC restaurant. She lives with her widowed father, who owns a butcher shop and while she still mourns her mother, and is haunted by the crime that was a tabloid sensation, she's looking forward to a career as a singer, and enjoys all that the City has to offer. Then a lost glove - a twist on the lost slipper that ended with Cinderella's HEA - brings Allegra into Davison Cabot Berkeley's billionaire realm. The billionaire has an "understanding" with a fellow blue blood princess, but it is an immediate and powerful attraction when the two denizens of such different worlds meet. The story in this book continues in Devoted to Him (just FYI for those who like to know if their romance ends with the ending or continues on as the couple seek out their happily ever after), and I am already breathless with anticipation. Breathless For Him had everything I love in a romance - smart, erudite writing filled with marvelous detail. There is opera detail, languages, art, fashion, NYC, the Met, performing arts student detail (I'm a sucker for performing artist stories, having been one in my past creative life), food, dialect and sensual detail galore. The conflict is nicely rendered to keep you guessing, and Allegra's strength in the face of her past makes her a wonderfully strong, yet vulnerable heroine. The suspenseful sub-plot is neatly woven into the love story, there is terrific external conflict from a grasping ex-girlfriend, and a snooty parent who wants Davison to marry in his own class, plus Allegra's best friend who is a terrific addition to the cast, and Allegra's butcher father, who is well-fleshed out, very human, protective, and loving, and nicely compliments the feisty heroine. Though I generally go for romances that push the erotic envelope a bit more, Breathless is sophisticated, sexy, emotional and poignant, I loved it! Brava Signorina Tate!
