Where to get:

Mature and explicit content. Not recommended for readers below 18-years-old. Yup, you've got to be that old to read my story. Consider yourself warned.
I’m Dakota Collins, a tough talking, eye patch wearing, workaholic photography student. Why am I important? Well, maybe because I get to spend an entire month with Vicious, only the sickest indie rock band out there.

You see, I needed a subject for my Spring Showcase introspective in order to graduate. During a chance encounter at a club I’d been sent to cover for the Daily Gossip, our ironically named college paper, the features writer I usually teamed up with introduced me to the band—by accident, I might add. It involved a run in with a scary, bald bodyguard. Anyway, long story short, I signed a contract to take pictures of Vicious.

I should have known their handsome yet way too serious for his own good bassist, Luka Visraya, wouldn't be able to keep his hands to himself. He’s gorgeous and all, but the way he smiles spelled trouble with a capital L. I’m in for a long month with him around.

Crazy shit happens and then some. So, if you want the skinny on Vicious and the events revolving around my stay at Lunar Manor, read my story.

But, see, that's the thing about photographers. It was in our blood to get the right shot. The perfect picture. If we had to climb a tree, lie on the ground, suspend ourselves in the air, we would do it..
Dakota? I stilled, waiting, but didn't turn around to face him. Before this is over, you will show me what's beneath that eye patch. The cockiness in his voice more than his words annoyed me enough to say, Good luck with that. This was a onetime offer. I'd appreciate it if you kept your hands to yourself from now on.
Refusing to listen to my conscience begging me to run back to my room, I climbed onto his bed and straddled him. Ever so slowly, I lowered myself against him. Without any sort of prompting, I felt him stir beneath me. Exhilarating excitement at his response even in sleep roller over my skin.
But Luka got the last bit wrong. The question wasn't if I knew what was good for me... it was did I have the balls to actually claim it.  

         OMG, Just WOW... What a story!

From the moment I decided to review this book, I knew I had made the right choice. This is my second book by this author and I just adore Kate's writing style. I was hooked from the very first page. Some stories take a few chapters to get going, but NOT this one. This one had me right from the beginning. I was entranced by the characters, wooed by the language and wowed by the incredible story that was evolving.  

Savor is the first book in a promising series that promises you some romance, paranormal flavor and even some really sexy love scenes. 

The story is about Dakota Collins, a photography student who needs a subject for her final showcase. And boy does she find it in the band Vicious. Dakota gains a once in a lifetime opportunity to live with the band for a month and take photos of them. But little does she realize what she is really getting herself into. She is in for one crazy month.

I for one adore a female protagonist that is gutsy and goes after what she wants and we see this in Dakota from the moment the story begins. She's been through a lot and we slowly learn about Dakota and how her past has made her who she is now. The book gives us some juicy details of how Dakota is who she is now, but we are never really finished learning about her and the other characters. This is obviously the opening for the second book in this series. I was cursing and throwing things at the end because "Gosh where is the second book already Kate?" Okay, okay, I wasn't really throwing things, but I will defiantly be getting in line early for the sequel! 

SAVOR is a fun, sexy introduction to what I anticipate to be a mind-blowing series. It is intended for adults, contains mature (sometimes erotic) subject matter. I would recommend it to fans of NA Paranormal Romance.

After realizing she wasn't going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is in possession of a piece of paper that says to the world she owns a Literature degree. To make matters worse, she took Master's courses in creative writing. In the end, she realized to be a writer, none of what she had mattered. What really mattered? Writing. Plain and simple, honest to God, sitting in front of her computer, writing. Today, she lives in the Philippines and writes full time.
