Can you fall for someone you've never met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch--an anonymous virtual assistant service--is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He's still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth--that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won't show her pretty face.

But it's nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can't fix. Hailey can't resist the offer. Matt can't resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn't have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

I received this book for free from Purchased by Review Site in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I know this is only the second book in the series, but it’s my favorite so far. Stay has everything: heart, romance, passion, humor, fear, insecurities, scorching sex, and love.

Hailey and Matt had my attention from page one. I loved their easy connection when they were texting and their awkwardness when they finally met face-to-face for the firs time. Matt is a good man who needs a good woman to appreciate him and his big heart. His love for his daughters is unwavering. He’s a fierce protector, which made me love him even more. But he’s also damaged, has flaws, and owns it. But more importantly, he works so hard to be a better man in spite of his ex-wife, who is a real piece of work.

Unlike Matt’s ex, Hailey’s ex-husband is a kind, gentle man who is still trying to find his way, especially when it comes to dealing with his father. I loved that Hailey had the courage to standup for herself. Yeah, she had her insecurities, especially when it came to Matt and at times her career and the business she’d built with her ex-husband, but she didn’t let them stop her. She was willing to fight for what she wanted. She was willing to fight for Matt, which was exactly what he needed. A woman who made him a priority in her life.

This story evoked so many emotions as I was reading and I loved it. Even now as I write this review, I have a smile on my face and a contented sigh. I’d definitely recommend Stay to my friends. Ms. Bowen and Ms. Kennedy definitely scored a goal with Stay. I hope the next book in the series is released soon because I’m dying to know what happens next.

Stay is witty, sexy, heartfelt, and hot.

Rated 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read by Blackraven
