I rush to him as soon as I see him, slamming my lips over his. I know I need to start detaching myself from him in order to keep him safe from my past, but I need something more than that. I need his strength, his constancy. I need to be with someone who doesn’t know anything about my past and thinks I had a normal childhood. I need .
Dressed in a black pin-striped three-piece suit and a white shirt, his dark green tie matching his eyes, Davison is sitting in his black leather desk chair, leaning back into the headrest. I can tell his legs are crossed, his hands casually lying on the armrests of the chair. The power he exudes, the way he smolders at me makes me so damn wet, heightened by the sight of the sly grin on his lips. I’m breathless at the sight of him. My heart pounds against my chest, seeing a man of such magnetism and confidence. He can overwhelm me so easily, but I’m no longer frightened by him. He arouses me to the point where I cannot help myself, like a vulnerable moth to a burning flame.
Allegra goes to see Detective Dermot Leary at her local police precinct. He was the lead detective of her mother’s murder 19 years ago when she was five years old. She shows him the anonymous note she received and he tells her about the sex-trafficking ring he’s investigating because there might be ties to Naples (where her mother was from in Italy) and the man who killed her, Carlo Morandi, who died that night as well. Leary tells her to be careful when she’s in public and to tell him if anything odd happens to her again. That night she has another dream about her mother and the night she was killed.
When she sees Davison the next time at his apartment, she throws herself at him, desperate to be connected to him. He carries her to his bedroom and have sex. She tells him about the engagement ring that Ashton told her about, and he says that the only way she’d know about it was if she was snooping through his desk because he didn’t but it for her-it belonged to his grandmother.
Allegra’s father shows her a note that he received from someone saying “I KNOW WHO SHE IS.” They agree to see Leary together.
Allegra surprises Davison at his office at Berkeley Holdings dressed in a suit and they engage in role play. They have hot sex twice.
Davison and Allegra go out for dinner. They’re assaulted by the paparazzi when they leave and Allegra shuts down because of what she lived through in her past. Davison rushes her back to his place and takes care of her. But she won’t tell him why she freaked out. The next morning, Davison’s mother, Mona, shows up at his place to make sure they’re both ok. She invites them both to dinner next week at his parents’ house on the East Side.
About Breathless For Him:
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 . .
