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.

Allegra Orsini is working her way through grad school in the hopes of becoming an opera singer. When she encounters billionaire Davison Cabot Berkeley while working at the Le Bistro, she senses an immediate connection with the tabloid darling.
Davison sees Allegra as no-one else does – to him, she is more than just a coat-check girl, and he’s determined to get to know more about her. But Allegra is from a different world to the wealthy and successful Davison. Her past is dark, her memories bitter and her future not as bright as his. She wants him, the man that seemingly sees straight into her very soul, but she doesn’t think she deserves him.
Davison is determined to make the beautiful singer his, no matter the cost and regardless of her past. Will the secret she keeps come between them? Or will they find their happiness?
This was a surprisingly suspenseful story – which is not something I expected when I picked it up. But that suspense set it apart from other books that follow a similar storyline – rich man falls for beautiful but poor girl – and made into something a little bit special.
I loved the alpha tendencies that Davison showed immediately and their first meeting – when Allegra assists him at Le Bistro – was practically jumping off the page from all the sexual tension.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
