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 . . .
Ashley’s book review: 3 stars
Thanks to Sophia Tate for giving Collector of Book Boyfriends this ARC to review!
The story fell together too fast for my liking. I would’ve liked to have seen Davison and Allegra’s “love story” build more and show more connection between the characters, instead of just jumping in like they’ve been together quite some time and know everything about each other and love each other unconditionally right off the bat. Don’t get me wrong, kindred spirits and soul mates are possible and you can feel like you “know” someone right away, but I felt like this just wasn’t set up for that…if that makes sense?
With that being said, I did enjoy this book! This was my first Sophia Tate read and I think she is a good writer. And I liked reading about Allegra and Davison! There was the instant attraction between Allegra and Davison, some plot mystery in the background with Allegra’s past that keeps you intrigued, some relationship obstacles for Davison and Allegra, and the ever present relationship issue that a lot of books do: “We’re from completely different worlds, so there’s no way we can make it.”
Even though this story went a little too fast for me in the beginning, it was still pleasant to read. I would give this book 3 Stars***
