About this ebook

USA Today Bestseller!

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.

4.5 Stars I’m a little upset with my booky friends for not telling me that I MUST read Kristen Proby – I adored this book and can’t believe I’ve gone so long not knowing her work that I’ve got a bunch of “catch up” to do. But for my introduction I got to read Mia’s story, the last in this series of five women, friends and business partners in the restaurant Seduction in Portland. Mia’s been tapped for a new competition show on THE up and coming food network, and while she’s not wholly enthusiastic, she’s ready to give it her best. But when she discovers that her competition is Camden, her first love and worst mistake, she’s not sure she can do this. Embarrassed by her behavior some ten years earlier, struggling with her own self-esteem and worthiness after a few pounds and more than a few explosive moments in her kitchen leave her working ALL the shifts with help she really can’t rely on, and Camden being sexier (if possible) than he was years ago – she’s in tumult. Camden only signed on to the show to work with Mia – the girl he compares everyone else to with her curvy frame, her boldness when cooking and her laugh. He spent the past ten years building a reputation and becoming the hottest celebrity chef on the planet, all while keeping tabs on Mia’s progress and dealing with the hurt from years ago when she left. From years of feeling not “quite” enough, her mother’s subtle (and not so) digs about her weight, and her own low self-esteem – Mia is a control freak. Everything has a place, a way to be done, and everyone around her can’t help but see her work ethic and need to have things just so…a perfectionist who needs her cooks to jump on the train and do things her way. When Camden comes into the picture – their attraction is instant, but he’s also constantly and consistently working to show her she’s fantastic, sexy, pretty and above all – someone that people want to be around. Even before coffee. Maybe. So flippin sweet – Camden and Mia both have issues that need working through, and to talk about the reason they first split – but even more important to Camden is to show Mia that she is worth it. In every way. Sexy, sweet and clever – Mia’s internal back and forth is something everyone can relate to – no one is solidly in the “I am great and everyone should love me” at all times, and while there was a bit more weight obsession for Mia here than I wanted to see, she’s not someone who yo-yo diets or deprives herself - the food (even simple brownies and ice cream) become a delight for readers. Sexy, steamy and with an epilogue that brings all of the characters together to show the progress, success and laughter that has withstood business, relationships, children and time – it’s a lovely story bringing all of the happy endings that every romance reader needs. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I've got to admit reading Savor You was a bittersweet moment for me. I'm absolutely stoked to finally have Mia and Camden's story (and oh, what a story it is), but it's also the end of the Fusion series and the idea of not having another installment with the lovely ladies of Seduction truly makes my heart sad. But really, that's the only thing I'm sad about because Kristen Proby delivers another great read with the final installment of the Seduction series! Throughout all the other books she's made you just fall in love with these characters and this final meet up with old friends truly couldn't have been any better. Mia and Camden were just perfect together, I mean it, they were just everything...all the things!! I'm so glad to finally get her backstory to find out why Mia is who she is and Camden... oh, Camden was perfect. Truly; some of the things he said and his actions just melted my heart. They both went through so much to finally make their happily ever after a reality and I honestly couldn't be happier with the end of the series. I cannot wait to see what Proby had lined up for us next!

WOW.... what an amazing ending to such a great series! I love this series so much because these women are so relatable. Mia is a sassy, headstrong beautiful curvy woman who kicks butt in the kitchen but meets her match with her former flame. Camden is a sexy, laid back gorgeous celebrity chef who will be working with Mia in a cooking competition show. The chemistry between these two definitely heats up the kitchen and the pages of the book you won't be able to put down! Prepare to be seduced, captivated and enraptured with another Kristen Proby 5-star MUST read!
