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.
A lot of things are left unsaid. I hope there will be a sequel for closure.
How distracted did I get?
Stay is an intriguing romance that kept me interested til the end. Alexa is quite the interesting lead female though she's been through a lot, halfway through I lost some patience. Julian is a hot hotel owner, former player and jealous boyfriend. He's likable and patient. On a whole I enjoyed this book, however after the first few sex scenes I started skipping over them to get to the story. A bit much for my tastes but a lot of my friends would love it. With a little from the secrets resolved the ending was good but I hope that's not the end. Because some secrets are still hidden and I'm the curious one that needs to know that the main characters lived happily ever after have kids and grand kids.
I give Stay…..
