Written in the first person, this modern romance is like reading a blog with the comments turned off. At the end of the novel I feel as conflicted and overwhelmed as Alexa and, surprisingly, as glad to be serially unattached as Julian. It's rare to read a romance and not sigh just a bit for what you don't have at the end of the story. Stay is the only exception to that experience in my ferocious reading history.

The first seventeen chapters interested and amused me; made me roll my eyes and piqued my curiosity, oh and the sex was not only hot it was well written. This is extremely difficult to do in the first person. By chapter nineteen, I was struggling to hang on to empathy for *any* of the characters. By chapter twenty-three, I was frustrated; by twenty-seven I jumped to the end of the book to get to the Big Sekrit. There are forty chapters and I couldn't take it anymore!

It is chapter thirty-seven before you get to that by the way and it's viciously shoveled out there in a heated moment. Like Alexa, you want to run because you realize you've been manipulated as thoroughly as she has been. The characters barely get to react, never mind cope, before the book is over. Rather than being pieces of a puzzle put together so the bigger picture allows perspective to bring closure, your left with ragged, torn images and sorrow and anger and a bucket of doubt that even a baby step forward is genuinely being made. Just like that annoying real life you might be trying to escape for the space of a good book.

I went back to chapter twenty-seven and read to the end, hoping it wouldn't feel the same.

Loved it! From beginning to end Hilary does a wonderful job of bringing the reader into the book! The characters are relevant and relatable – you can almost see yourself in the book. Alexa and Julian have passionate chemistry and at times you can actually feel Alexa’s butterflies. Steamy. I can’t wait for the next one.

Stay is a great read. The characters are engaging from the moment they are introduced. The storylines are current and relevant and the author has created characters who engage in dynamic relationships we can all relate to.

Having grown up in South Florida, I love the way she embraces Miami and its Hispanic culture and weaves it into the book. Hilary is a strong writer and her detailed descriptions make it easy to visualize each and every scenario as if you are watching it on TV.

The love scenes are as hot and spicy as I picture Julian himself to be. Julian and Alexa’s relationship is complex with twists and turns until the end. Appropriately titled, both characters have you wondering whether their relationship will make it and if indeed they will Stay. Here’s hoping that this is not the last I read about Julian and Alexa.

“You know now that this is really going to happen, right, Alexa? And it’s going to be amazing.”
“Not just amazin, Julian. It’s going to be epic.”
I was approached by Hilary Wynne to read and review her debut novel, Stay. Stay is the first in this series and after reading this, I am hooked.
Alexa Reed has been just barely getting through life, ever since her ex-boyfriend and her broke up, almost a year ago. When her friends finally convince her to go out, Alexa literally runs into a man that will change her life.
Julian Bauer is the owner of Hotel Del Marco, which houses a club, bar, and restaurant. He’s sexy, confident, and wealthy. Every woman’s dream, right? Alexa feels an instant connection to Julian, but her best friend Luke is warning her away. She doesn’t listen.
Alexa and Julian fall into a relationship, one that is rocky but oh so amazing. They’re good together in bed, they have wonderful conversations, but Alexa is scared. Nothing Julian says can convince her that what they have is real. What she feels for him scares her; she’s never felt anything like this before.
“Julian, with you, everything is…amplified. My emotions, my desires, they’re stronger than they should be. All of my senses are heightened when you’re around.”
While Alexa battles her own demons, so does Julian. Together they are heading for disaster. Alexa is set in the belief that she’s going to wind up hurt, and she’s prepared to prevent that. Can Julian convince her to stay? Can he find the words that will make her believe what they have is real?
I honestly have no words for this book. It has left me speechless. It is a definite six stars on my five star scale. I was hooked from the beginning! The story is so well written; it will definitely keep you on your toes.
