Today I finished reading Savor You by Emily Snow.  Most of you have read Devoured and have gotten to know Lucas Wolfe.  Savor You is the story of Lucas' sister Kylie and her relationship with her brother's best friend and band mate Wyatt.


"Kylie Wolfe and bassist 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 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."

Okay.....I am giving this book 2.5 out of 5 stars.  I felt like there were a lot of questions left unanswered by this book.  There isn't enough of their story left unanswered to warrant a second long as we get up to date with them when Consumed is released....but the book did leave me wanting some answers to some questions.  Why did Kylie get so broken-hearted over Wyatt in the early stages of their "relationship" to warrant over 20 blackbird tattoos, yet they never defined their relationship and weren't exclusive?  What were the circumstances surrounding Brenna and the baby mama?  Would have been nice to get a little look into how/why that happened and the role Wyatt plays in Brenna's life as well as the role the baby mama plays in the picture as opposed to the two lines we get referencing it.   What is Brenna and Kylie's relationship like?  Wyatt mentions that Brenna has missed Kylie and they seemed close, yet we don't get a glimpse as to how they are so close.  Another big one is Kylie's cutting.  She has cut her wrists and Wyatt asked her to stop, but there is no mention of why she started cutting. Childhood trauma? Depression after break ups with Wyatt? It's anyone's guess, but I really felt that should have been explained a bit more.   I love details to a story and just feel like this was lacking a little bit in the details department. 

Having said that, if you are a fan of this series, then I recommend this read.  In Devoured I kind of thought that Kylie was a spoiled brat and assumed she had it easy because she was given a job making tons of money working for her famous brother.  But after reading Savor You, I got a glimpse into the life of a girl who has grown up in her brother's shadow not believing she was good enough.  However, if you decide to skip this read or your TBR is just too long you really won't miss anything from Devoured or Consumed because this takes place during the same time as Devoured, just with different characters.
