Book Review: Savor You (Savor Us #1) by Emily Snow

Savor You
(Savor Us, bk #1)
By Emily Snow


Blurb: 
Kylie Wolfe and guitarist Wyatt McCrae have been bad for each other for the last several years, but it’s impossible for them to end their toxic push and pull. Not when their attraction is constantly fueled by lust and proximity—she’s her older brother’s Lucas’s assistant and Wyatt is his best friend and band mate.

So when Your Toxic Sequel makes a move to record a new album in Nashville, Kylie decides to make the latest break with Wyatt official by getting the hell out of town. She’ll spend a week in New Orleans. A week to immerse herself in the Mardi Gras scene. One week to not think about the last time she was in New Orleans, seven years ago with Wyatt. Seven days where she won’t have to see Wyatt every day just to fall ridiculously in love with him all over again—where, if she wants to, she can have a normal, no-strings attached fling that won’t end in heartbreak.

Too bad Wyatt ruins everything by showing up, as gorgeous and demanding and goddamn awful for her as ever.

Wyatt refuses to let Kylie give up on him. Not without reminding her why they both fell so far and hard in the first place. Not without making her savor the good memories and what could be their last chance with each other.

Note: This is a spinoff from the Devoured series.

Viviana's Review: 
We met both Wyatt and Kylie in the "Devoured" series. Kylie caught my attention from the very beginning and I KNEW there was more to the story and I was hoping Emily, the author would share it with us.


Wow! Wyatt and Kylie have been through a LOT! We knew there was drama but what that specifically was or entailed we didn't know. This was a quick read and one that I didn't want to put down. I will admit, that there were times when I was thinking "Really?" as some of the drama could have been avoided by having a conversation and discussing the matter. Another thought we may have was the "Why". Why continue to put herself through the emotional roller coaster. We know that as much as we may love someone, sometimes, love just isn't enough. Yet, these two continued to gravitate towards each other. This went on for not days, or months, but YEARS. At which point do you say "enough, this isn't healthy" and decide to call it quits and move on. If she were my friend, I'd be smacking her across the head, giving her a hug and then pass her a spoon since we knew we'd be staying up chatting the matter over ice cream. Oh and if HE was my friend? The most disapproving look and the shaking of my head. Sometimes, things like that affect a guy more than punching him in the guy and yelling "you stupid fucker!". Can you tell, I've done something like this before? Yeah, those conversations were never fun. However, when you make that decision of "Yes, we're going to be together and we definitely need to work some shit out, but this is what we're doing and sticking to it!" does arrive you hope they both make the same level of commitment.

There are a few things that are left unexplained, like Kylie's cutting. I also wished we got to 'see'/learn a little more about their history. How they got together and what happened that drove them apart as well even some of those 22 events that caused Kylie to get those tattoos. As this is a series, I do hope some of these questions get answered in the upcoming books.

By the way, LOVING the new cover over the original!

Overall all a great read filled with great bantering, angst, drama, emotions and yes, steaminess!



Rating: 3.5 - I Really Really Liked It
