In the next sizzling romance in Kristen Proby's New York Times bestselling Fusion series, two celebrity chefs compete in a culinary competition, but resisting each other will prove to be the greater challenge.

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.

I have really enjoyed this “Fusion” series, Savor You is the last book in the Fusion series, and what a beautiful conclusion this book turned out to be. I will admit that I was fearing this book, because of the heroine…Mia. Now in previous books and even in this book Mia is mean at times and a bit too judgmental. So I do admit I was a bit too nervous for her book however after how the previous book left off I just knew that I needed to try this book up.

Mia is the last of the five to be single, although she has kept a big secret from even her closest friends. When Mia was in culinary school, she made friends with Camden, and through a turn of events they end up as roommates and ends up having the “hots” for each other and then they end up having a relationship but when Mia finds out that she is pregnant, they get married, but when she goes to her first check up with her doctor she is told that she isn’t pregnant and that it was a false pregnancy. So Mia leaves a note and leaves Camden without a word. And now she is having to face him again in a television cooking show and Camden will be her competition. There is a past that Mia and Camden have to face up to each other once again and the love that has always been there…

Savor You was a very well written romance and I was impressed with how Mia’s character was handled. I don’t love her as much as some of the other heroines in the series, since I still think she can be really mean at times, but I did get to see a deeper side to her character and why she is so brutal with others. She has struggled with her self image for a long time, many people are cruel about her curves except for her girlfriends and their husbands and….Camden. Camden has loved everything about Mia including her curves. I honestly was more on Camden side than Mia. She left him without a word, and he was so understanding about it. I love how unconditional his love for Mia is, that he doesn’t hold a grudge over how she hurt him in the past. You don’t see that too often in heroes in romance but Camden really was the perfect hero in so many ways.

The story develops into a sweet romance and we see some fun bantering and charming flirting between these two. They have some a cute repatoire that you can easily get on board with and boy Camden definitely knows how to handle Mia especially in her bad moods. I like that he knows the right ways to sweet talk her and touch her in the ways she likes and really understand Mia more than anyone else does. There is a sweet toned of intimacy that develop between these two and I adored seeing this happen. Seeing them reconnect with each other once again was such an emotional journey.

Savor You was a diverting read that delivers in emotion, charm and wit!!


 

About Kristen Proby

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
