Now, while I am usually a big gusher over this series and its predecessor series, I just could not find it in me to love it- love it. But I did enjoy it. Maybe it was the many POVs. 4 total. I do not recall that many before in the series. I understand it was needed at times to get the story across. But also at times it had me confused. (This could be due to my pregnancy brain. Who knows?) Or maybe it was the relationship between Vera and Jared. I just wasn't feeling them. I don't know if it is because I really lost interest in them as a whole...or if I really love Casey and Toby more. Want to know what I loved about the story? I adored Casey and Toby and absolutely loved their scenes together. I felt it really added to the story. They had a lot going on in their lives and I found it extremely interesting to read. Also, as usual, I was also excited to see Levi and Allie again. Can never get enough of Levi. So much love for him. And yes, even though I really wasn't all that intrigued with Vera and Jared, I have a feeling some major, huge, extraordinary things are on the horizon for them in the next book. Trust me, you will get this feeling too when you read the book. I look forward to what will happen next with them. So, if you are reading this review, hopefully you have read the first two books in the series and you are trying to decide if you want to read this one. And while that answer should be a given, because this series is amazing. My answer is most definitely YES! While it wasn't my favorite of the series, I still really liked it. I am still giving it 4 stars. I am still eager to read the next one. So I hope you will pick it up and read it too!

Alyssa Rose Ivy's paranormal series The Crescent Chronicles and it's spin-off series, The Empire Chronicles are, in my opinion, one of the best kept secrets available in new adult paranormal romance.  I have loved each and every novel and the characters all hold a special and very memorable place in my heart and mind.  Stay, the third book in the Empire Chronicles picks up where Search leaves off.  Jared finds himself in a very precarious position because he is the only one who has the answers that can save Levi, Allie and The Society as a whole, yet little does he know that the only one who can save him is Casey's sister Vera.  We met Vera in Search and I immediately loved her.  She is, as one of the other characters in the series, Owen, puts it, "the female version of Jared."  The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts, yet they try their best to stay away from each other.  The banter between them provides for some really entertaining reading.  We also get a lot more of Casey and Toby in this installment as they both play a big role in the novel.  There is also more of the other characters we've come to know and love, Levi and Allie, Hailey, Owen, and we get to meet several new characters also.   The paranormal aspect of the story is creative and Alyssa Rose Ivy has put her own twist around the concept of shifters, creating the whole Society concept, which I've found to be extremely entertaining and fresh.  She also delivers in the romance department, which is something she does well in all her books.  As things come together for Casey and Toby in this installment, the groundwork is also laid for more excitement, romance, and action for Toby and Vera in the next installment, Savor, and I can't wait to read it.   If you are a fan of paranormal romance, I can't encourage you enough to make the time for this series.  It is fabulous and definitely one of my favorites.

Stay is the third book in the Empire Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy. I love Casey an Toby, and I love that Toby is finally getting the girl. Or is he? Either way, Toby went from a character that I really disliked in the Crescent chronicles to an all around decent dude. Then we have Jared, who finds himself in some awkward if bot dangerous situations in this book. Is it time to let a girl save the day? You know I've loved Jared from the start, and I think he's finally met his match... in more ways than one. I can't wait for more of his story! The ARC of Stay by Alyssa Rose Ivy was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Magical doesn't even begin to cover this story! Book three in the Empire Chronicles Soared over my expectations! The love between Casey and Toby is beautiful. The budding relationship between Jared and Vera is full of sarcasm and hilarious! Full of twists and moments that will stop your heart, this is a read that will have you on the edge of your seat. I read this in one sitting, rushing to the end, but praying it wouldn't end! I would give it a hundred stars if I could.  "Spend your life with me Casey. Be with me from now until forever. I don't care what you want to call it: wife, mate, soul mate. Anyway you put it, I just want you with me. Always with me."
