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 going to make it very difficult to keep his hands to himself.
But when one thing leads to another and suddenly Matt is stripping Bryn bare, he’ll be 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?
Savor is the third novella in Billionaire Bachelors Club series. As with the first two I enjoyed this one. I don’t think it was quite the story book one was, but it was enjoyable.
I liked Matt’s character in both books one and two and I’ve been really excited about reading his book. I found him to be an interesting guy. It’s not everyday an ex pro-ball player buys a Winery with absolutely no experience in running one.
Matt’s love interest is Bryn. I liked her too. She’s young and a little bit naive. She’s his assistant. Having previously worked for the previous owner Matt hired her on. Together they share a strong attraction to each other and have been dancing around each other for six months.
Savor has a bit of a insta-love element to it. The sexual scene (yes, I said scene) was comparable to adult mainstream and not explicit in nature. Whereas Crave & Torn had plentiful sexual scenes, Savor came up short.
Overall, I liked this one. I’m sort of sad the series is over. :/

Marina Knight came to this party for one thing only: to slap Gage Emerson in the face. Poised to snatch up her family’s real estate empire, the sexy tycoon is on the verge of making an enemy for life—even if he can make her melt with a single kiss …
When Gage discovers that the alluring woman before him is the key to his latest acquisition, claiming her as his suddenly doesn’t seem quite so cut-and-dried. To get what he wants, he must get to know the fierce woman willing to face him down—as she steadily steals his heart.
Gage’s persistence and intense passion war with Marina’s determination to protect her family. As they delve deeper into an affair they didn’t see coming, Marina’s torn: Will she lose her heart to Gage—or everything she holds dear?
Torn was a very fast read for me. It can easily be read in one sitting. I liked it. Gage was a secondary character in the first novella in this series and I was really looking forward to him getting his own story. He’s not one for relationships so I couldn’t wait to meet the woman who would bring him to his knee’s.
Speaking of… I really liked Marina. She’s tough as nails and doesn’t take crap from anyone. I enjoyed the banter between Gage and Marina. They go from not being able to stand each other to scorching up the sheets in no time.
The sexual content is comparable to mainstream romance. It’s not overly explicit, but still enjoyable to read. There are plenty scenes within this one.
Overall, I really liked this one. There may have been a time or two that I feel things were rushed, but overall this is a great read.

Billionaire Archer Bancroft always gets what he wants—and he’s wanted Ivy Emerson, his best friend’s sister, for far too long. Being forbidden and untouchable only makes her more tempting. When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challenge—last bachelor standing takes all—Archer knows he can win. That is, until one enchanted evening with Ivy takes his heart for a ride.
Ivy knows Archer is nothing but bad news: Infuriating, arrogant…and completely intoxicating. But despite her best efforts, she can’t seem to keep away. When a stolen kiss leads to a night of heated passion, Ivy realizes she’s in trouble and in head over heels.
But in the light of day, everything seems clearer and Archer’s not so sure a one-night stand is all he wants. Concocting a plan to keep Ivy by his side, Archer might just be willing to lose this bet…and win the jackpot instead.
Amazing. I loved this story. Even though it’s a short read things didn’t seem to be rushed. The story flowed smoothly and kept my attention from beginning until the very end. I was able to read it in one sitting.
Both Ivy & Archer have known each other for a long time. He’s always been attracted to his best friend little sister, but has never crossed the line where she is concerned. To say he’s a player would be an understatement. He goes through woman almost as fast as he changes underwear. He is not the commitment type of guy that’s for sure.
Having said that I loved him from the beginning. Even though he’s not the commitment type he admits to himself that if he were then Ivy would be the woman he’d consider committing too.
Ivy’s has always thought Archer was gorgeous and sexy, but she knows how he is. She knows he’s a player and she doesn’t want to go down that road. Plus he’s her brothers best friend so that’s basically a no-no as well.
I was so happy when they acted upon their mutual attraction. I thought they made a great couple and I couldn’t wait for Archer to commit to Ivy and only Ivy.
The sexual scenes are pretty much mainstream. They are not overly explicit in nature, but they are enjoyable to read.
The secondary characters are all very interesting in this book and I’m looking forward to reading both Gage & Matt’s stories.
Overall, I truly loved this one. If you’re a fan of Monica Murphy stories I highly suggest you give this book a try. This is going to be a fantastic series.
