Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "Maya Banks’ writing has always evoked an emotional response for me and SONGBIRD definitely had me hanging on to each and every word anxious to find out what happens between these memorable characters." Romance Junkies
  • "Stay with Me is a spectacular ménage. I love how the triad was already established at the beginning of the book, and readers are taken on a journey of the inner dealings and things that have to happen to make a relationship like this work. Consider Stay with Me joyfully recommended, because it made me laugh, cry, and blush. I loved it." Joyfully Reviewed
  • "Stay With Me is the best all around book I’ve read, with the sex steamy and the emotion deep. It has all the aspects I love about romance. Ms. Banks engages your mind, heart and body; definitely not a book to be missed." Fallen Angel Reviews

After reading Sweet Temptation, I was so absolutely horrified, I thought I might never read another Maya Banks story again. So it was with great trepidation that I picked up Linger. However, I was pleased and relieved to find again the Maya I fell in love with when I first read Colters' Woman. In Linger I found 2 touching and emotional stories, menages within committed and caring relationships, and erotic scenes without any of the hard-core bdsm that disturbed me in Sweet Temptation. Once I started reading Linger, I couldn't stop, even to sleep. I read it in one sitting!

This book was just what I thought it would be, Maya Banks once again has written a great story. This book contained 2 stories and that just made it better. She never lets me down, I laugh, cry and truly enjoy every book she has written so far. I would reccomend this book and many of the others to anyone who wants to read a great book. Thank you Maya for all of the wonderful books you have wrote and I am glad to say that I have read and enjoyed, I look forward to all of the new books and hope that the Coulter Legacy will be in print soon, as I prefer books to kindle.

[Also available on my blog.]

This was not quite as good as I was hoping it would be.

My copy of this (as I know there are other versions) has two stories by Maya Banks.

First, Stay With Me. This one was better than the other by far. I liked how Catherine interacted with her husbands, and I liked seeing them try to work through their problems. The two men needed to fix things, as they had made several missteps in the marriage, and I think they did a pretty good job at making up for it by the end, assuming that they did keep up with what they'd started. I liked that Catherine was firm in her thoughts, that she loved them but wasn't going to back down. They all needed that.

This story gets a weak 3 stars on its own.

Second: Songbird. I was not as big a fan of this one, and I'm not even really sure why. It just didn't hold my attention as well for some reason, I guess. I felt bad for the three of them, I actually understood their feelings and felt for what they had gone through. The ending was very nice, and it did get a little bit exciting before the actual ending. It just felt slow, or something. Overall, though, it logically wasn't that bad, I don't think. It was probably just me. I might just not have connected with the characters as well as I could have. I don't know.

On it's own, this story gets a very weak 2.5 stars, maybe even 2.

There is a lot of sex in these stories. In the first one, I rather enjoyed it. In the second one, I mostly enjoyed it. The stories would have probably been just fine without all of the sex; I actually didn't even enjoy the sex very much; it didn't make me hot, and the in the second one, I found myself wanting it to be over already.

Considering how much I like Maya Banks, I thought I would really enjoy this book from its' description. Of the two stories, the songbird one wasn't all that great. The other was okay - nothing like her recent works which I really like.

Stay with Me:
I've read this book about four times and this is the first time writing my review on it. I have to say with my extensive bookshelf and my now limited space....in order to keep any book I have to love it and read it more than once. So far I have to say, I love Maya Banks writing style and have several of her books in my collection to prove it.

"Stay with Me" starts off with a harsh topic. Catherine has come to the realization that her relationship with Logan and Rhys has been in a tragic downward spiral for years. She no longer ranks on their list priorities. After pushing off responsibility for time and attention spent with her based on who's available, she's at the end of her rope.

Even after she leaves on a much needed vacation without them and they find her, they still don't want to believe how broken their relationship is. Time and time again they fail her and it takes a major incident to finally open their eyes. Still by this time she's all but broken in spirit and has no hope for their change.

This book was heavy most of the time, with a splash of Maya Banks ever so brilliantly sensual writing the rest. I found myself having to open the windows to cool down during my read and after I finished the book I diligently put it back on my shelf to read again. I love Maya Banks and her books.

Songbird:
I was given this book as a gift and I knew I'd love it from the moment I opened the box. What can I say, I'm a big fan of Maya Banks. I had read the book "Stay With Me" a while back and I loved it the first time I read it, and I love it now. This was the first time reading Songbird and I have to say, I loooove it too. It's a great two books in one collection.
