Savor You by Kristen Proby
A Fusion Novel
Publication Date: April 24th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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 theyshare 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.
This is the final book in Kristen Proby’s Fusion series. All the other girls from Seduction have their HEA and now we finally get to learn of Mia’s past and watch her find her HEA. Don’t let that mislead you. This is a complete standalone book. The series is interconnected with each book about a different couple. The characters are in each book but you do not need to have read the others to thoroughly enjoy this book.
Mia is feisty, stubborn, passionate, and even a little prickly (in the best possible way). She’s very loyal to her friends. She is also not your typical heroine. She is overweight, or I’d rather say voluptuous, and several times in this book the struggles about her weight are brought to the forefront. I love that the author did this so much! Especially since I’m also “voluptuous” and have experienced some of the same things Mia has. Just because you have a few extra pounds doesn’t mean you can’t find your HEA.
Camden is amazing. He’s strong, determined, charming, and captivating. I love that he lets Mia be a strong woman. He only encourages her and praises her for who she is, weight, stubbornness, prickliness included. We all need a Camden in our life.
This was a fun, light, quick read. With many of Kristen Proby’s books and especially with this series, you get very little angst (if any at all). It’s just a great story. I always appreciate these types of books. This was a great way to end this series.

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.
