Blog Tour: Stay With Me by J. Lynn - Review!

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 she’d 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 the 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.

Literally, this woman can do/write no wrong. Everything she has written is completely captivating. Her With Me series is one of my absolute favorites!

Calla was so different from what we saw in Tess’s book. She put up a front in front of her friends, and they didn’t really know the real her. I have to say, I am so glad that we got to find out the real her. She has survived so much and all of it has left devastating scars, inside and out. I loved her strength throughout the book. She actually may be my favorite JLA heroine so far.

Jax is the newest member of the Hot Guy Brigade! He is most definitely a classic JLA boy but he is also so much more. He is so protective and sexy and perfect. Calla was in danger and he did everything in his power to make sure she was taken care of. He is just so alpha and I love it!

This was a long book, but it didn’t read that way. I breezed through it in a day because the plot was so exciting! There is something about her writing that just calls to me. It’s an addiction. The romance…there are no words to describe the amazingness.

So basically, based on my raving review, this is the best book of hers so far. When I realized who the next book in the series, I was ecstatic!

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: I gasped at the unexpected bite and the rush of sensations erupting. He took advantage of that and deepened the kiss, slipping inside me, and I was no longer thinking about pushing him off. The kiss…it was wet and deep and it wasn’t good or nice. It was great and everything the romance books claimed kisses were. Jax tasted me. There were no other words to describe that kind of kiss.

The second installment in a never before published New Adult duet by #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines, ONE MORE CHANCE  is the follow up to the smash hit TAKE A CHANCE, and concludes the story of Grant Carter, a fan favorite character, and Harlow.

She was it. His one. His only. Then he made the mistake of letting her go.

After fighting his way into Harlow Manning’s heart—and revealing a side of himself no one had ever seen before—Grant Carter destroyed his own heart by giving in to his greatest fears and doubts. Months later, he’s stuck in a miserable routine. Work relentlessly. Beg his best friend Rush for news about Harlow. Avoid all other friends. Leave nightly voicemails for Harlow, pleading with her to come back to Rosemary Beach. Fall asleep alone. Repeat.

Miles away, on her brother’s Texas ranch, Harlow can’t bring herself to listen to Grant’s voicemails. Though she wants to be with him, and knows he regrets letting her go, she doesn’t know if she can trust him. When he discovered the truth behind her sheltered upbringing, it shattered their relationship, but the secret she carries now has far greater consequences. Can she risk giving Grant one more chance, or will the gamble ultimately destroy her?

With her signature passionate characters and sizzling connections, Abbi Glines debuts another steamy, page-turning novel that will leave readers desperate for more.

Abbi Glines is a writing machine and freaking genius. The Rosemary Beach series is absolutely one of my favorites!

Harlow is a really strong heroine. She really grew from book 1, Take A Chance, and it was great. There were a few surprises that I wasn’t expecting, and she took them like a champ. She is also the most caring and non-judgemental heroine ever. She totally deserved her happily-ever-after.

Grant also grew sooo much. I loved how he got over and faced his fears, which I was waiting for him to do for a whileee. I’m so glad it finally happened. I love his protectiveness and how he would do anything for Harlow. He was there for her during some of her hardest times.

For me, Kiro was the biggest surprise of them all. On the outside, he is a hard-edged rocker but underneath he is this completely different guy. I mean, WOW! And Nan, I would reallyyyyy like a book for her. To me, she is redeemable and I’d love for her to finally find love and a home.

I was totally not expecting the shocker right at the beginning but I loved it! Totally great. Abbi certainly keeps her readers on their toes. The romance had some incredibly sweet moments that I live for in books. And the ending was grade-A perfect.

I am really looking forward to both Bethy and Mason’s books! I can’t seem to get enough.

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: The kiss wasn’t holding back anything. His hands gripped my hips tightly in a possessive, hungry grasp as his mouth slid across mine, I tasted the mint from his gum and shivered at the intimate contact. The dinging of the elevator reminded us that we weren’t alone yet.
