Great for german shephard lovers

This book is a great book for a rainy day, airplane ride, car ride, or just for fun. Stay was the first book I bought on my nook color. I have never regreted it, I read it over and over.

Great first effort!

Great first effort from first time author! It was a simple story, told very well. Predictable, but that's OK, still enjoyable. If you love dogs, you will like this book.

    A Diversion

    I rarely read romance because I overdosed on them years ago. However there are a few romance authors that are must reads because of their writing styles. It’s even less rare for me to buy books because of covers, but this one was just too stinkin’ cute to pass over. Once I read the back cover blurb I thought, “What the heck.” I took a chance on a debut author.

    What did I like about this book? Joe. This dog is precious, precocious and perfect. He stole most every scene he was in. I also liked the honesty of the story. It paints a realistic picture of unrequited love, fear of relationships and the lengths we go to in order to keep ourselves afloat.

    The secondary characters, Aunt Agnes and Louis were fantastic creations. I just wish the rest of the cast held the same appeal.

    What did I not like about his book? The main characters. I never once felt any sympathy for Van even though she went through some really tough situations. It’s not that I disliked her, it’s that my feelings remained neutral toward her. Her best friends treated her horribly and though the author tried to show their loyalty it came too late.

    Van’s love interest, Alex, seemed too good to be true. Maybe it’s because I’m jaded, but he didn’t seem genuine. To top it off, he overreacted too quickly and capitulated with too much ease.

    Stay is written well and is easy to read. It holds the interest of the reader and therefore makes it a good choice to wile away a few hours. Don’t expect it to stick in your mind though. A diversion is the most you should hope for.
