***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Set against the steamy and sultry world of South Beach, Florida, a modern romance unfolds in Stay. Alexa is beautiful, independent and hard to resist for serially unattached Julian. Neither one is looking for a relationship, but their palpable chemistry and instant emotional connection is too strong to ignore.
For the first time in years, Julian is interested in more than just sex. He wants a relationship with intoxicating Alexa, but it’s not that simple. Not only are Julian and Alexa struggling with the intensity of this new relationship, but they also have to contend with Luke, Alexa’s best friend, whose own love for her leaves him willing to do anything to convince her that Julian is not the man for her.
Luke’s determination and Alexa’s secret past threaten to tear Julian and Alexa apart as she struggles to open her heart to love. Julian and Alexa embark upon a roller-coaster ride of emotional and physical passion that both pulls them apart and holds them together.
Despite their affinity for each other, Alexa fears that Julian will leave when he learns about her past and Julian is unsure he can love a woman who in so many ways remains a mystery, a woman who keeps threatening to run, a woman who can’t decide if she is going to STAY.
The plot was smooth, fast moving and unpredictable. The characters were relatable, fun and more importantly they were real. You could picture the events that took place happening to a friend or family member and they were not “super rich”. They had jobs, bills and responsibilities just like most of us. The author was able to make them seem like they were part of your circle of friends and it was just a step for the reader not a gigantic leap for you to relate to them.
What I didn’t always enjoy was the whining that came from Alexa. She would get on my nerves a bit, but then something would happen and you would forget that she was a pain in the butt and begin to feel for her again. Julian also had his own problems, but when the two of them were together it was total love for them and their relationship. I enjoyed reading about them, Luke and Brady and the end was a total twist from where I thought the book was going.
This book had drama, love, heartache, pain, twists, turns, curves and loops – everything a book needs to make it amazing! I can’t wait to see what happens next to Alexa, Luke, Julian and the rest of the gang! Make sure you add this to your TBR list and be prepared to do nothing else the day that you start reading it because you won’t be able to put it down! Enjoy, I know that I did!!
