New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy concludes her sexy Billionaire Bachelors Club series with a fiery romance that refuses to be left at the office . . .

Bryn James can't take much more. Smart, sexy Matthew DeLuca is everything she wants in a man, but he's also her boss—the youngest, hottest vineyard owner in the Napa Valley—and he doesn't see her as anything more than his shy assistant. That's all about to change. Armed with a hot new look and an attitude to match, Bryn is determined to catch Matt's eye . . . professionalism be damned.

With his winery's grand reopening approaching, Matt is trying to stay focused, but Bryn is suddenly making it very difficult. He's always thought her prim demeanor effortlessly sexy, but Matt can't deny that her transformation is jaw-dropping . . . and making it tough to keep his hands to himself.

But when one thing leads to another and suddenly Matt is stripping Bryn bare, he's faced with the biggest risk of his career—and his heart. Can he convince her—and himself—that this might just be more than a no-strings office affair?

Literary's Views

Savor by Monica Murphy was a fun, quick, light romance that had just enough conflict and passion that grabbed my attention.

What drew me was the unrequited love between Bryn and Matthew and the issues that both Matt and Bryn had that was hindering them getting together.

I liked Bryn and her willingness to overcome her past and start to truly be herself. I understood her issues and how even though she had feelings for Matt she was wary of getting involved with him which totally made sense. Matt was a nice guy though I wished he would have acted on his feelings for Bryn sooner, before her whole transformation. Even though he was the boss he didn’t have the annoying entitled opportunistic personality and I felt his developing feelings for Bryn were genuine and he really cared for her.

There was a major spark between Matt and Bryn that quickly blossomed as their passion grew to a sizzling romance. The drama and conflict was automatic with their relationship what with Matt being Bryn’s boss and the whole interoffice relationship usually a taboo, it brought instant suspense on whether their relationship would work out. As well as figuring out how they would navigate their working relationship and their growing romantic relationship really made the story interesting.

Though the story began when things between Bryn and Matt started to really heat up their romance wasn’t this instant love at first sight thing. They have been working together for a while and had established a nice working relationship and I wished I would have read more of the development of their relationship and Bryn’s growing feelings for Matt so I would have been more invested. All in all I enjoyed reading Savor by Monica Murphy though it didn’t completely capture me it was good and those who like a good office romance should check it out.
