Breathless for Him

 photo 20761717.jpg

Allegra is a music student with a passion for opera. Stemming from a family with a rich Italian history that was basis of her upbringing she gained a rich appreciation for the music from her mother. After some tragic events Allegra made some life altering decisions and one of them brought her down the path of becoming an opera singer.

Davison comes from a wealthy upbringing, he's a successful business man, and he's expected to marry a woman he doesn't really like. He finds himself restless and looking for something more until one day when he goes searching for his lost driving glove and finds himself so much more.

Allegra and Davison's paths cross while she is working the coat check at a restaurant that he frequents. He comes on pretty strong and is very sure of himself, which all piques Allegra's interest and fuels her desire for him. The 2 of them are drawn to each other and begin seeing one another as they help each other get through some things in their lives.

As I read this book I found Davison to be a little too perfect. I kept waiting for something to happen that would take away from that image somewhat but it never came. It's Allegra who has the past that she fears getting out because of what it may bring. There was some mystery around her background but it felt like she seemed to make it a bigger deal than it was. It's a good read that kept my interest and had its steamy moments but I just kept feeling like there was more that I needed from it.  

This is Sofia Tate's debut and it's the first book in a series, the 2nd is slated to come out in December and is called Devoted to Him.  I'll be on the lookout for it to see how things build from here.

I received an Arc in exchange for an honest review.
