*****RATED R Due to Violence, Sexual Content, and EXTREME Profanity*****

Eighteen year old Alexandra has finally made it out of her abusive mother’s house alive. Now, going to St. Norbert College in the small town she grew up in; she wants to experience living her own life, free of abuse. But on the night she meets Jason Roberts; her fate has something different in mind.

Alexandra and Jason have a strong connection but the closer she gets to him, the further he shuts her out. That doesn’t stop Alexandra’s heart from falling for him and she’s determined to let him know. The night she decides to tell him, he never shows up. Leaving her to wonder about the mysteries that hold him.

After months of mourning his loss, Jason returns to not only let her know that he can’t love her but to wish her well on her next relationship. Heartbroken for the second time by the man she loves, Alexandra decides to move on with what others told her to be “the perfect man”, Zac Millington, but as time goes by she realizes that things were never as they seemed…as he seemed.

If you wake up one day and you’re living your worst nightmare, would you take the chance to change it or convince yourself that it’s what you’re really meant to be living?

Stay is a romantic depiction of how two people that are meant to be together are torn apart by the one thing they both have in common. As they both go through their own versions of abuse, will they be able to stay after finally finding each other again?

This book is wonderful!  It grabs you in from the very beginning!  Its the kind of book that you cant put down! I  love the characters.  The story is believable and unfortunately a lot of people can relate.  I love the strength nd fight that Alexandra had.  I wish more women that are in an abusive relationship had that.  The heartbreak that she went through many can relate as well.  I really felt for her.  I cant wait to read the next book from this author.  She is very talented!  r

I had trouble getting into this book from the beginning. The first chapter was one of the most boring things I've ever read, and I had to put it down and walk away several times before I finished it. I didn't even what to finish it. I wanted to remove it from my nook, but I continued with it. And I'm glad I did. My heart broke for Alex and I was thrown off by the twists in the story. If you're struggling to get past the first chapter, just finish that chapter and everything starts to pick up. Promise!

First and foremost I would like to say it's as good the second time as it was the first time I read it. But it's been all but 2 yrs since I read it the first time and I guess I'm just wondering when the 2nd book will be here?????? It says sooner rather than later then I seen a post from last year that said possibly the end of June or July and that was almost a year ago:(

A book that will STAY with you long after you finish! I had the opportunity to Beta read this book and it blew me away and left me speechless. From the beginning to the end the story is intense, emotional and beautiful. Watching Alex suffer so much abuse at the hands of her mother was sad and gut wrenching. The book literally begins with her being beaten for no reason other than her mom was nuts. When she finally went off to college I think I breathed a huge sigh of relief! Alex was a character that was strong yet vulnerable and I found myself both relating to her and wanting to crawl inside the book and defend her. Not only from her mother but from the man she ends up with after Jason leaves without warning. At first, you think Zack is a great guy, charming, funny, sweet and gentle but as the story progresses his dark side comes out and Alex is in another bad situation she can't just walk away from. Alex wasn't a shrinking Violet though, Oh NO! The girl was a spitfire and many times she added fuel to the fire by mouthing off to both her mother and Zack, especially during times of abuse. When Jason comes into the picture you are so ready for something good to happen to Alex after leaving her mother's house and when she meets him it's kismet. You can literally feel the chemistry between these two characters from their first meeting. I loved Jason so much, even when he just disappeared and left Alex I knew he wasn't another jerk. I knew there was a reason. He was so gentle with Alex and the way he treated her was like a soothing balm for the soul. Even though Alex ended up marrying Zack, a complete monster of a man, I still loved Jason and wanted them back together desperately. His reasons for leaving were very understandable and I wished so badly that he would have stuck around to talk to her about it. There is a very HUGE twist in this story that I had no clue was coming. I can usually spot a plot twist a mile away but as the story got closer to the ending and you are watching this intense scene unfold, that's when the author HITS you with a whammy! I won't spill the beans about it because it was so well done as far as plot twists go but I will say that I was in tears . I try not to cry while reading but this particular scene, after all you go through watching the characters survive the story, was so amazing and beautiful I seriously still can't get over it. It will surely "STAY" with you even after you have finished the book. Stay was so many wonderful things that make up a good read. It was Intense, emotional, Romantic, Sweet and Swoon worthy. There wasn't one thing I didn't like about this book, including the abuse. It may have been tough to watch but the payoff the way the story ended was so worth the pain! I can't recommend this book enough, you have to experience Stay! It's just a really amazing book!
