More About the Author

It all started when I read "Sinful" by Charlotte Featherstone. I was hooked, and from that point on, I knew I wanted to write erotic romance. I can't wait to share Davison and Allegra's story with you!

Once a month, I watch "North and South" with Richard Armitage because I love hearing him say, "Look back. Look back at me." I am also slightly obsessed with European royals and reruns of "Battle of the Network Stars" every Monday night on ESPN Classic.

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.Read more ›

This is a wonderfully sexy and romantic story about a opera student and a wealthy NY businessman. But it is much more than that. The characters have chemistry, thanks to the excellent writing of Sophia Tate, and the backdrop of New York City only adds to the overall glamour of the story.
The hero is sexy, of course good looking but kind, considerate and truly a good guy. No hidden agenda or pretending to be something he isn't. You'd want him even if he wasn't rich
The heroine is strong and independent for all that she is damaged from a childhood incident. Ms. Tate does a wonderful job of weaving the mystery in with the hot and steamy romance. I love the supporting characters and hope her best friend may one day get a story of her own.(hint)
Overall this is an excellent read and I highly recommend it!

There are a lot of girl meets rich man and falls in love with him stories out there, and while I really liked them in the beginning, I have found that unless there is some kind of secondary plot line within the story it just isn’t enough for me to really like the book. But Breathless for Him has an interesting twist part that starts building up right from the beginning, and its definitely a mystery I enjoyed reading.

So Allegra is an opera singer/student who is putting herself through school at a very upscale restaurant at the coat check. When it turns out the hot billionaire guy who is all over the tabloids is actually a silent owner, and is suddenly going to be around on a nightly basis, Allegra’s life really starts to change. I liked how Davison and Allegra’s started out, he’s clearly smitten with her, and there is clearly an electric connection between the two of them, but neither one of them just jumps into bed, there is a slow build up that happens over many nights where Davison drives her home.

Allegra clearly has something hidden in her past that is clearly haunting her, and as you read on through the book you get more and more of an idea about what that event from her past is. It’s clearly something that affects her, something that she thinks makes her undesirable, and on several occasions it causes her to pull away from the connection she has with Davison, because she doesn’t want him to find out about her past. I have to say that I really did enjoy when her past started to become a part of her present, although I thought that at the end it was wrapped up a little two quickly.

Davison I like a lot. For a lot of different reasons. He’s a very take charge kind of man, which I love. I liked that he stood up and said what he thought no matter who to.

I absolutely loved this book. The characters were so real and I felt as if I was really there. The dialogue was believable and the characters seemed like real people. I loved the characters of Allegra and Davison. I can't wait to read more novels by Sofia Tate.

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 from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
