Not the best book in this series, too short and just seemed as if the author wanted to finish the bachelors series. I thought Matt deserved a book longer than 120 pages. It is really not a stand alone story because if you read it without reading Crave and Torn in this book series, you will not understand the attraction of Matt and Bryn.. I am still a big fan of Monica Murphy, and suggest that you read her series of Drew and Fable starting with Week Long Girlfriend. Or read Crave and Torn before Savor, there is a better idea about why matt and Bryn get together.

Savor was good but not great. It was way too short and it felt rushed. It would have been nice to have a full story and also a recap/ending for the others (marina, gage, ivy, archer). The ending was so abrupt, it made you feel as though she just wanted to be done with the series.

I loved reading this series. Just wish this story was longer and more in depth. Would have liked more angst and character development.

First Impression...I completely loved the first book in this series, Crave. I was so excited for Matt's story. He started the bet, after all.
The Story...Bryn works for Matt. Bryn has a bad history with falling for the guy she works for. She needs to not do that again. So she hides behind loose boring clothes and does her job. But she really wants Matt. He loves her scent and when Ivy insists the clothes change, he can't keep his hands off her. I really love to watch two people resist chemistry. It's totally fun. The thing is that the reason they were resisting seemed pretty thin to me. Just felt that needed to be more substantial. I would have liked a little more from the ending as well. A few little details that didn't really get explained left me sad.
The Characters...I love Matt. He's afraid to be his father and I don't blame him. The guys a jerk. So he's trying very hard to do the right thing and not get involved with his assistant. But he can't resist her. I so love to watch a guy try to resist. I struggled with Bryn. I get that she doesn't want to be what everyone thought she was back home but she waffles, a lot. I wanted to shake her a few times. Guess that means she got to me emotionally, which is good.
The Writing...I enjoy Monica's writing style. There were a few places I wished there was more details but overall I enjoyed that part.
Could I Put it Down...Depends. There were parts I didn't want to put down and so I didn't. I read it in two evenings. But there were a few parts where I could and did put it down.
In The End.. I enjoyed it. It's a quick read and I wanted the rest of the story. I had hoped to know what happened from the bet in this story but Matt told us in the character interview. I also expected some progress in Gage's relationship but that didn't happen either. Despite that, I enjoyed Matt's story and would recommend it to anyone who's been enjoying this series. It's a great contemporary romance.

Average Read With a Drool-Worthy Hero But Weak Heroine
As the final book in the Billionaire Bachelors Club series, Ms. Murphy comes full circle and gives us glimpses of the couples from the previous installments as well as the new couple of former athlete Matt and sexy but shy Bryn. Both of them are attracted to the other but are hiding behind facades so as not to endanger their hearts.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Bryn was born beautiful and it has caused her nothing but problems. No one has ever seen past her looks or ever expected much of her. She's added to her problems by making poor choices when it comes to men which led to her leaving her previous job after being romanced by a married man. She doesn't want to lose her new job though so she hides behind drab clothing, no make-up, and a buttoned-up demeanor. Making her commitment to keep to herself even more difficult is her attraction to her new boss and her new friend's desire to see them together and the subtle matchmaking going on. Bryn's journey to a HEA doesn't go smoothly as her insecurities and his honor create one roadblock after another to their getting together. Bryn's a character that has low self-esteem and is too scared to live for fear of making another mistake. She's wishy-washy and hard to pull out of her shell as the past book heroines find out when trying to befriend her. She's a character that I never warmed up to and wished for someone stronger for Matt.
Matt's starting a new career that he wants to be just as good at as he was as an athlete. Being the quintessential boss means keeping his hands off the help which becomes difficult once he sees a glimpse of the real Bryn. Though he's first attracted to her looks he soon works to win over her heart as he longs for something permanent and is drawn to the caring woman he's come to know throughout each work day. Matt is a great hero, caring and loyal. He doesn't want to be compared to his womanizing father which has him hiding his true feelings at first but ultimately becoming a swoon-worthy hero.
This was a slow moving story that never set itself apart from other contemporary romances. The hero was likable but the heroine was hard to relate to. Their journey to a HEA flowed back and forth due to her hot and cold demeanor which culminated in a rushed ending that felt incomplete. Not having read the previous books had no affect on my feelings towards this book. The storyline doesn't rely on any previous actions and, though nothing special, ends up being an average read. In no way do I feel like reading the previous installments of this series but will gladly read more of Ms. Murphy's works in the future as she clearly knows how to create a sexy and appealing hero.
