For fans of Samantha Young, Sylvia Day, and E. L. James comes the sinfully sexy sequel to Breathless for Him. This emotional, erotic romance continues the story of Davison, a tempting billionaire who'd do anything to protect the woman he's devoted to, Allegra, even if it means losing her . . .
Two months ago, Allegra Orsini nearly lost the man of her dreams. Thankfully Davison Cabot Berkeley, a powerful billionaire who always gets what he wants, had refused to allow anything-or anyone-to come between them. Now back in the arms of the man she loves, Allegra receives an incredible proposal.
Allegra is invited to study under the opera world's most legendary diva. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity . . . but it means moving to Italy for a month. Thirty days without Davison's touch. Allegra isn't sure she can survive it-especially when Davison begins pulling away for reasons she can't figure out. Is the man who has given her more passion and pleasure than she has ever known about to break her heart? Soon Allegra starts to realize that Davison could be guarding a secret even more devastating . . .
This is a follow up to Breathless for Him. I don’t think you have to read the first to enjoy this one since the author is good at explaining and detailing many events, however, I do believe this would have been more enjoyable had I read it.
Allegra Orsini is an aspiring opera singer. This statement right there is exactly what drew me to the book. My best friend is an opera soprano so I know the personality plus I can’t recall any other romances that have used this as the leading female’s profession. Anyways, I digress. Allegra is feisty, smart, loyal, devoted. The list just goes on and on. She’s really quite a complex character which I realize more now than while reading the story.
Billionaire, Davison Berkeley, runs the family corporation his grandfather founded. He’s definitely an alpha male in a finely custom tailored suit. Who wouldn’t want a man crafted in the finer things of life but still likes to grunt and chest thump? For me, that’s a dream.
The pair have overcome some serious obstacles in the previous book with Allegra’s kidnapping but now with life back to their version of normal, they can focus on each other. Still yet, new road blocks emerge but nothing the two can’t conquer together. While there is some suspense in this story, it isn’t overwhelming. My perspective is the focus is more on their love and the evolution of their relationship than any secondary complications.
Here’s what the real takeaway is from this story. This couple loves the dirty talk and follows through in the bedroom, or the bathroom, or the car…well you get the picture. I can truly say all of their “relating” is memorable…and it is good and steaming and—oh my, now I’m blushing. This alone will keep me reading more from Sofia Tate. The fact that the story is well written with layered main characters is just icing on the cake.
