GUEST REVIEW: Savor You – Emily Snow

Today Holly Baker is going to be guest reviewing Savor You by Emily Snow. As I have yet to read the Devoured series, her review has definitely made me add these books to my TBR list!!

Check out her review below 🙂

——————————————————-

17281601Synopsis

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.

Holly’s review

Savor You is a spin off from Emily Snow’s Devoured series, which I absolutely loved!! I mean, what’s not to love about sexy rock star Lucas Wolfe and his band Your Toxic Sequel? So when I heard that a book about Lucas’ younger Sister and PA Kylie, and his guitarist Wyatt was to be released, my expectations were high. But that’s probably where I went wrong. Because I was left feeling kind of let down by Kylie’s story. Don’t get me wrong, I still thought it was good, but I didn’t love it and I truly hate to say that because I think Emily Snow is a fantastic writer.

Kylie and Wyatt have had a crazy on-off relationship for 7 years. It’s intense and toxic which is never a good mix but no matter how many times they get burned, they keep going back for more. Just as Kylie finally decides to kick the habit and end things with Wyatt for good, he has other ideas. He turns up at the end of her vacation and asks for a few days to try and prove to her why they should give it one last try, by taking her to places that had memories for them, so she could remember why they fell in the first place. Their relationship wasn’t exactly stable, but I loved Wyatt for doing this despite the fact that most of their past encounters were tinged with sadness, they still meant something to him.

There were quite a few aspects of the story that I enjoyed. We find out the meaning behind Kylie’s many tattoos which really made me feel for her and I found myself hoping she didn’t get any more for this reason. The name “Brenna” popped up quite a few times and I really wanted to find out who this girl was and how she came between Kylie and Wyatt at some point in their past, and when her identity is revealed I was seriously surprised and I loved it!! We get to Lucas again and I still loved him just as much as in Devoured and what made me love him even more is that at the end of Savor You, we get to see Lucas’ POV from the end of Devoured and it is awesome!

Two characters that really stood out for me in this book were Kylie’s BFF Heidi, and YTS band mate Cal. I loved these two so much! They really bounced off each other and left me wanting more, so I was really happy when Emily told me that depending on what the fans wanted, she has plans to do books in this series for Cal and Heidi, and Sinjin and a mystery lady. So if you read this book, make sure you tell her how much you loved the secondary characters, and fingers crossed, we will get more.

Overall I found myself wishing for more energy to Savor You, but to be honest, I don’t think Kylie and Wyatt’s story could be told any other way. It wasn’t all happy, hearts and flowers. It was tough. It was intense. It was broken. But it was theirs. Unfortunately it just wasn’t for me. I still love the Author’s writing and I will continue to buy future books from her including this series. I am still very much a fan of Emily Snow and I look forward to reading what she brings out next.

ARC: Lover Undercover – Samanthe Beck

17698384Synopsis

He’s undercover. She’s in over her head. Yoga instructor Kylie Roberts is the good twin. At least she was—until an accident forces Kylie to step into her twin’s sexy stilettos at a posh Hollywood “men’s club.” But nothing could’ve prepared Kylie for the dead body in the club’s parking lot or the ridiculously hot detective who insists the killer is targeting her regulars.  Detective Trevor McCade needs Kylie’s help to draw out the killer. It means long nights undercover and long dances where Kylie’s body tempts him with sensual promises. Dances that leave them both wanting more. But despite Kylie’s hidden identity and the danger lurking in the shadows, it’s only a matter of time before Kylie and Trevor take this undercover operation under the covers…

My Review

*Thanks to Publishers via NetGalley for approving me of reading Lover Uncover in exchange for an honest review*

Kylie and Stacy Roberts have been joined at the hip since forever, well they are twins. People back in their home town always had expectations that they were never amount to anything especially Stacy who is deemed the ‘bad’ Robert, so why not live up to that reputation. When they were old enough to move away and try to prove them wrong, L.A came calling.

Kylie is the ‘good’ sister and is a yoga instructor, focussing all her time and effort on her job, which means romance and dating has taken a backburner since…well forever. When her sister is involved in an accident, Kylie is forced to step into her twin’s shoes at a posh Hollywood ‘men’s cub.’ Cursing her sister for making her pretend to be her so they can pay their rent, Kylie couldn’t have imagined she’d find a dead body after her first night or that a smoking hot detective insists the killer is targeting her regulars.

Detective Trevor McCade needs Kylie to help him with the investigation to make the killer strike out again…at him. This means long nights undercover at the club and long dances where Kylie’s body seduces him into a frenzy. Her dances are leaving both of them wanting more and it’s only a matter of time before Kylie and Trevor take this whole undercover service under the covers.

After reading Private Practice by Samanthe Beck, when I saw this book was by her and when I read the synopsis, I clicked ‘request’ and was so happy when I received an email to say I was approved to read it. Gosh, I loved every single moment of reading this book. Samanthe keeps you in tenterhooks, with the investigation, wondering who the killer is, to Kylie’s journey and discovering it’s okay to have people help you and to open yourself up to romance and of course, the ‘undercover’ romance between both Trevor and Kylie- hot, hot, HOT!! Swooooosh!

Samanthe Beck’s writing is engaging; it draws you in so you have to keep turning the pages and its all kinds of sexy and informative – with the police investigation and the sexy scenes. With the investigation and how it was handled, it seemed that Ms. Beck has done her research on how victims should be handled and treated, how secret you must be when undercover and how fast you must react when the killer strikes. Although there are obvious some scenes that in no way would be allowed to happen, it all added to the fun of this book. It all interested me until the very end and I had many different men on my list of suspects. I can guarantee you probably won’t guess who it is…I sure as hell didn’t.

When her twin sister Stacy breaks her leg, she cons Kylie into pretending to be her until its healed as Stacy is technically the one earning the money to pay their rent. Kylie isn’t happy at all, not wanting to pretend to be her sister and to be a stripper but if they want to stay in their house, its something she has to do. Kylie is literally the sweetest character you can imagine. She’s taken a backburner on the dating scene because her mother royally screwed up around men and with her bad parenting, whereas her sister went the other way, screwing men then leaving them, not thinking she is good enough for a relationship.

Kylie is loyal, bright, determined and straight-thinking, yet she’s fiercely independent and doesn’t like the thought of a man coming between her and her dreams of opening her own yoga studio. Because of her mother, who was so dependent on men, it’s turned her the other way to not want a man and to not let him stop her in any way. I kind of admired that about her, yet it annoyed me too. Being in a relationship, you can still have you independency whilst leaning on them to help you with your dream. But I think with her up-bringing it just made her cautious and that is why she was the way she was.

Trevor is a detective who has recently been given a case suddenly has a link when a stripper is seemingly connected to the two men who have been beaten to death. The two men who were regulars of this stripper. Both loyal to Stacy. But with Kylie pretending to be Stacy, its Kylie who had to keep up appearances and who is slap bang in the middle of this investigation into finding the killer. Going undercover, Trevor knows that the more time he spends with Stacy (Kylie) the more he is falling for her but first he needs to know what she is hiding.

Trevor is a loyal character, he’s lovable, a hard worker and protective. He also has a big heart, and the way hes attracted and falling for Kylie is just so sweet, even when he finds out the truth. He wants to be there for her, prove that not all men will ruin your dreams, he especially will help her at any costs to achieve hers. His protectiveness for Kylie throughout catching the killer pulled my heartstrings. He would do anything for her, to make sure she is safe. He is such a cutie.

The attraction that Trevor and Stacy (Kylie) have is instant. They both feel the pull, the need to get closer to one another and when Trevor is the detective on scene of the death of a man Kylie found, that first proper meeting he is there every step of the way with Kylie, both undercover and in real life. You can see the chemistry and that Kylie feels nervous around him…well she is lying about who she is…but also shes never felt the way she does for ANYONE and now Trevor has turned her into this gooey mess. But she’s also turned him into this gooey mess, especially when she dances for him in his undercover-ness. The more he has to pay for dances and pretend to become a regular to get the killer after him, the more its becoming harder for the two of them to not jump one another and just have sex right then and there in that private room as the dances were particularly steamy!

That epilogue. Holy shit, it reminded me of another book in some ways, but I’m not going to mention what book as it could potentially spoil the ending, but dear god, let me find a guy to do that please! Or let me be Kylie so I can have Trevor. It was the perfect ending and perfect for both of them to be ended like that in the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is a lot I haven’t mentioned, but I want you to read it yourself to find out what occurs. I have given you the bare minimum to at least catch your attention in reading Lover Undercover and I truly hope it makes you want to buy it when it comes out!

Pushing aside the investigation and the sexy scenes, Lover Undercover takes Trevor and Kylie on a journey. More Kylie really. It takes her on a journey of growing up, of self-discovery, of love and acceptance and a journey that not all men want you to give up your dreams; you just need to find the right one who will support them. From being a shy women to growing up and blossoming into a confident women, who now knows what she wants.

If you loved Private Practice, you will definitely love Lover Undercover too!
