"Engaging characters lead the reader through a poignant and layered narrative about the universal desire for something so elusive--a safe place to fall. Make no mistake, this novella contains a tremendous amount of depth and insight in its condensed pages. You'll be left wanting more of the Hollywood Lights series as soon as the last page is turned!" --Amy Impellizzeri, award-winning author of Lemongrass Hope and Secrets of Worry Dolls
"A quick paced, smart, and romantic read." --Karissa Laurel, author of the Norse Trilogy
"How To Stay is an intelligent romance. The central tension isn't whether the girl will get the guy, it's whether she will let herself--something all readers can relate to and enjoy." --Brandi Megan Granett, author of Triple Love Score
