Savor Me by Kailin Gow

devour me

 

synopsis

Taryn Cummings could not believe she was accepted into the prestigious International Institute of Culinary Arts culinary institute she dreamed of studying at in beautiful Paris, France. It was a far cry from her unglamorous life back home in New York where she helped her mother run their small family-owned restaurant called Sam’s. The International Institute of Culinary Arts churned out the top chefs in the world, including the wildly sexy and eccentric Master Chef Errol King, whose celebrity personality was larger than life.

She wanted excitement in a city of romance and thrills, but arrived to find her apartment barely livable and herself in need of a suitable place to stay. A chance meeting at the Institute brings her face-to-face with her new roommate…the devilishly charming Errol King, who would be guest teaching her class this term.

The attraction is as hot as the fire they cook with, and while Errol King, the notorious bad boy chef with an attitude, can get anyone he wanted into his bed, he wanted this woman more than anything. Something about her sweet innocence and sad eyes reach into his harden heart, but is it enough for him to forget his past?

Devour Me contains mature subject matters and sexuality. For adults age 18 and up.

myreview

Devour Me by Kailin Gow follows Taryn as she travels from New York City to Paris to study at a world-renowned cooking institute. It is here at the institute that she meets Errol King, who is not only a world famous chef and one of her professors, but he is also young, sexy, and very into Taryn. So, what can go wrong when you have food, sex, and Paris? Oh wait, there’s that small pesky issue of a possible inappropriate teacher-student relationship, but who really cares?

Taryn takes on the task of becoming Errol’s assistant and this includes moving into his apartment. There is an obvious attraction between the two of them but it is not immediately acted upon. Gow writes in such a manner that the cat and mouse game that they play with one another is captivating. But, once their relationship does become physical is hot and steamy.

“’No other man should hear you laugh the way I do. No other man should please you the way I do. No other man should touch you. I’m the only man, Taryn. ‘His lovemaking had become more ardent. ‘I’m the only man, do you understand me?’”

What I appreciate about this book is not only is it erotica, but there is a storyline. The vulnerability and insecurity that Taryn possesses are characteristics that mimic real life. And, on the flip side, the jealousy, the possessiveness, the trust issues, the vulnerability, and sensitivity that Errol exhibits all make him seem like a real man. Devour Me is a book that I finished in one setting and it definitely left me interested and wanting to know what’s next for Taryn and Errol. As, I previously asked, what can go wrong when you have food, sex, and Paris???

myreview

Savor Me picks up right where Devour Me ended. Taryn and Errol are still playing a game of cat and mouse with one another but this time she is back in NYC and he is back in Paris. Her mother, Samantha and brother, Bobby are happy to have her back home and to have her help with the family restaurant but they both have a feeling there is a reason why she suddenly left Paris and school. The puzzle of these pieces started to connect once Errol showed up at their family restaurant.

Once again, Gow engages all of your senses by the hot, steamy scenes but there is still much to her writing and this story. Savor Me just like Devour Me goes deeper than sex and exposes what can happen once we drop our guard and allow someone in. But, if you haven’t read book #1 (Devour Me) in this series, then please do so before reading Savor Me.

“I’ll admit I’ve known a lot of women in my life, Taryn, but I’d never felt the way I did that very first time with you, and that feeling has grown these past months. You’re like a piece of the puzzle that’s always been missing. You make me feel whole and you have a way of bringing light into a life that’s always been so dark. When I saw you on your back last night, with that idiot’s hand on your neck…I swear, Taryn, I could have killed him.”

And, the above passage is the only thing I disliked about this book. Let me clarify, not the actual words because who wouldn’t love a man to say those things to you??? It’s the fact that now we must wait until September when Consume Me is released to read the reaction.  Savor Me is an excellent book and was read in one sitting.
