Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You and Be with Me returns with a daring tale that pushes boundaries . . . in which a young woman learns that you can't run from your past—no matter how far you go

At twenty-one, Calla hasn't done a lot of things. She's never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom's mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother's bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla's business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she's got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn't give them her mom.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
04/01/2014
Jax, a soldier devastated by his experiences in Afghanistan, meets Calla, scarred by the fire that killed her siblings, and the rest is romance. The first two books in Lynn's new adult "Wait for You" series were both New York Times best sellers, so great expectations—and the 100,000-copy first printing—aren't unreasonable.

    If I'm being perfectly honest, I'm not convinced Jen can write a bad book. Ever. She's one of my favorite authors and I've loved every single book she's written, in one way or another. Her characters are wonderful and I can't help but fall in love with them. Whether she's writing as J. Lynn or JLA, young adult or new adult, contemporary or paranormal, I can almost guarantee I'm going to fall in love. I had high expectations for Stay With Me and she exceeded every one of them. 

    Stay With Me is Calla's story. Calla hasn't had an easy life. Her mom is an addict. She was the victim of a fire that left her with a lot of scars and a lack of self-esteem. She's got great friends (most of whom we've met earlier in this series) and is enjoying college. Her life is turned upside down when she learns her mom has wiped her accounts clean and she no longer has the money to continue on in school. Hell bent on getting her life back on track, she heads home to confront her mom and get her money back. It's there she meets Jax, a bartender at her mom's bar, and this heroine starts to star in her own story, instead of continuing on in a supporting role in the story of others. 

    I loved the dynamic between Calla and Jax from the beginning. It was obvious he saw her as more than the girl with the scars. He was worried about her getting mixed up in all the things her mom was into. She, of course, wasn't interested in his concern. She was a girl on a mission. But, as more and more of her mom's secrets, associations and debts came to light, things got real REAL quick and Jax helped Calla deal with all of it. He was a great source of support for her, and more importantly, he helped her see the woman underneath the scars. With Jax's help and attention, she realized she was worthy of the affection she'd been craving while watching her friends and their relationships. 

    Jax just might be my new favorite of the guys in J. Lynn's Wait for You series. A former Marine, he was smoking hot, super protective of those he cared about, smart and sexy as sin. He was a bit naughty and completely drool-worthy. He's a perfect addition to the "hot guy brigade." 

    Jen has done it again. The romance was wonderful. The sexy times were hot. There was a healthy dose of drama and some moments that had me on the edge of my seat. As I expected, there were plenty of feels, too. I loved the glimpse we got into the lives of Cam and Avery and Jase and Teresa. I love these couples so much. It was great to catch up with them and watch as their happily ever afters continue. This is new adult at its very best and if you're not reading this series, you're definitely missing out.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

    I have really enjoyed reading the books in this series so far except for this one. I was disppointed that there was no pov for Jax but other than that, I did not care much for the first part of this book. Calla was just so emotionally immature and so dense that she just got on my nerves. Regardless of what Clyde, Jax, and the others told her as to how things really were, she just had no common sense about how to do anything. The second half of the book finally picked up but it was already too late for me to really like this book. I did like how the book showed that a person does not have to have a "perfect" body in order for somebody else to like them. The plot had real potential with the message it was trying to get out but Calla just didn't cut it for me, therefore the book fell kind of short for. I just hope the next book in this series is much better.

    This book was full of twists and turns, there was romance and action. I enjoyed it and read it very quickly because I wanted to know what would happen next. The main character, Calla, had so many struggles and I really felt for her. I am looking forward to the next book in this series and was bummed it won't be out until March! It's a good read and I would recommend it for sure!
