SAVOR YOU is the fifth book in Kristen Proby's Fusion
series. Although it's part of a series with recurring
characters, I believe that SAVOR YOU works well as a
standalone novel. This is quickly becoming a favorite
series for me. Mia Palazzo and Camden Sawyer have a
tangled past that ended in their marriage being annulled.
Such raw and complicated emotions might contribute to a
story that is more angst than entertaining. In the book
blurb on the back cover of SAVOR YOU, it hints that there
may be some competition going on between Cam and Mia when
they see each other again, but that can't be further from
how things actually develop between them. In Kristen
Proby's capable hands, SAVOR YOU is a superb bit of
storytelling with drama, humor, and sexy scenarios.
About a million years ago, Mia and Cam went from
roommates, to coupledom, to expectant parents, and
finally to having their marriage annulled in a relatively
short time frame. Cam never really understood why their
relationship exploded, and both are a little sensitive
about the topic. Flash forward a few years later and Cam
walks into Mia's restaurant and her life once again. In
spite of Mia's defensive snarling at times, Cam is able
to see the vulnerable woman underneath. What follows is a
fun, flirty, and totally charming story of two people
reconnecting and getting a second chance at love. Kristen
Proby writes some of the most dreamy and delightful
heroes in contemporary romance. Even though they have a
past, in some ways it's like two strangers meeting and
experiencing a new and exciting attraction. Kristen Proby
captures that tingle that comes with good chemistry.
SAVOR YOU is sublime and sexy with characters you'll fall
in love with. There are one or two misunderstandings in
SAVOR YOU, due to Mia's reluctance to voice her feelings,
but they don't ruin the overall enjoyment in any way.
Each of the two main characters have a wonderful support
system to bounce their thoughts off of. Cam has his
sister and Mia has her tight-knit group of friends. Each
book in this Fusion series has been like a
so I look forward to Kristen Proby's next book.
Cooking isn't what Mia Palazzo does, it's who she is.
Food is her passion . . . her pride . . . her true love.
She's built a stellar menu full of delicious and sexy
meals for her restaurant, Seduction. Now, after being
open for only a few short years, Mia’s restaurant is
being featured on Best Bites TV. To say Seduction is a
wild success is an understatement. All the blood, sweat,
tears, and endless hours of work Mia has put into the
restaurant has finally paid off.
Then Camden Sawyer, the biggest mistake of her life,
walks into her kitchen . . .
Camden's celebrity chef status is world-renowned. He's
the best there is, and the kitchen is where he's most at
home. He can't resist the invitation to Portland for a
showdown against Mia for a new television show. Mia was
in his life years ago, and just like before, he's met his
match in the beautiful Italian spitfire. The way she
commands the kitchen is mesmerizing, and her recipes are
clever and delicious. He's never had qualms about
competition, and this is no different. He can't wait to
go head to head with Mia. But can he convince her the
chemistry they share in the kitchen would be just as
great in the bedroom as well?
As Mia and Camden face off, neither realizes how high the
stakes are as their reputations are put on the line and
their hearts are put to the ultimate test.
