(Alexa Reed #1)
Genres: Adult, Contemporary,
Set against the steamy and sultry world of South Beach, Florida, a modern romance unfolds in Stay.
Alexa is beautiful, independent and hard to resist for serially unattached Julian. Neither one is looking for a relationship, but their palpable chemistry and instant emotional connection is too strong to ignore. For the first time in years, Julian is interested in more than just sex. He wants a relationship with intoxicating Alexa, but it’s not that simple. Not only are Julian and Alexa struggling with the intensity of this new relationship, but they also have to contend with Luke, Alexa’s best friend, whose own love for her leaves him willing to do anything to convince her that Julian is not the man for her. Luke’s determination and Alexa’s secret past threaten to tear Julian and Alexa apart as she struggles to open her heart to love. Julian and Alexa embark upon a roller-coaster ride of emotional and physical passion that both pulls them apart and holds them together. Despite their affinity for each other, Alexa fears that Julian will leave when he learns about her past and Julian is unsure he can love a woman who in so many ways remains a mystery, a woman who keeps threatening to run, a woman who can’t decide if she is going to STAY.

I like Alexa's character, she is so smart,witty,insecure and fragile as well. I like how she valued her friendship with Luke. Julian is a typical male alpha who really showed his love to Alexa. He really tried to understand Alexa's attitude because he love her so much. Alexa was so scared to trust anybody she tried to hold back her feelings to Julian which I find annoying sometimes.
I felt sad and happy every time they had a fight, after they fight Julian will do his best to win back Alexa and to patch up everything. At first I like Luke too but on the middle of the story he became possessive of Alexa and he tried to ruin Alexa and Julian's relationship.
This book came so much than I expected. The plot was bit different and the characters are amazing. I found the story,characters and relationship very realistic.
I'm so excited for the Book 2.
Great job Hilary ! Thanks for giving us one of a kind story.
