From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You and Be with Me comes a daring tale that pushes boundaries . . .

At 21, Calla hasn't done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought shed left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from they moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn't give them her mom.

Cover:  I really like this cover.  I think it's really pretty.  Not my favourite of the series though, that would go to the second book.

I love J. Lynn.  Her New Adult novels are definitely some of my favourites.  Hands down.  I know when I pick up one of her books, I'm in for a treat.
Her Wait For You series is for sure, one of my all time favourites.
I couldn't wait to read Stay With Me.
I wasn't disappointed.
While it took me a little while to warm to Calla, she seemed more immature and childish than the previous protagonists, I still really liked her.
This book handles a lot of issues, heartbreaking issues, and they were handled so well.  My heart went out to Calla.
Jax was just perfection.  So sexy.  Sweet. Romantic.  Protective.  Totally swoon worthy.
I loved their romance- even if I wanted to shake Calla sometimes!!

I really hope Roxy and Reece get their own story- they were really great side characters, and there is definitely some tension there!

4/5 stars.  Highly recommend for fans of New Adult contemporary.
