Publisher's Summary

Eli Sabatino, determined to make a name for himself amid Seaside, New Jersey's nightlife, has laid out the perfect plan for success. But that plan didn't include Layla, the hopeful bartender who walked in for an interview. He knows that as an employee this alluring blonde is off-limits, but he can't fight the undeniable force of attraction that pulls him toward her.

Layla Del Luca has the weight of the world on her shoulders. With a full course load, a boyfriend, a sister to take care of, and an alcoholic mother, she needs to regain control of her life. Her job at Fierce is priority number one. But a complication she didn't expect looms behind the eyes of Eli, her handsome new boss.

Emotions collide full force, and they can no longer turn a blind eye to what their hearts are telling them. But can their passion survive when Eli can no longer promise the one thing Layla asks of him? Will everything change?

    "Amazing!!!!!"

    Amazing amazing amazing!!!! Loved this book! This book has you falling in love with both Eli and Layla right away. It will have you laughing and crying and make you feel every emotion the characters themselves are feeling.
    Also great narration, you can hear the emotion in both narrators. You're still about to lose yourself in the story while you listen.

    "A compelling story that gripes your heart"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Stay for Me to be better than the print version?

    The print version of this story just wraps your heart and soul up and capture your attention. I found the audible equally as gripping with the storyline, however found the man narrator to be a bit distracting. His voice was just all wrong for Eli Sabatino. It was too dark, menacing of a voice for this already deeply dark and emotional read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Eli. I've loved his story from the the moment we met him in Let Me Love You. I want him to have his happily ever after. I want to know more about this man who loves unconditionally and opens his heart to a family, not just a girl.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Both voices were crisp, clear, and easy to understand. The girl narrator was much less distracting than the man, only because her voice did not have a harsh edge to it. Both narrators did change their tones when speaking as a woman and a male, which is common in audibles, but I found them a bit distracting and not necessarily needed. I would not have picked the man narrator for Stay For Me. This story already hints at a dark emotional storyline at the very beginning and from that moment on I felt like I was in a private investigator movie from the early 40's.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book gobbles my heart and soul up every single time I read it. Eli and Laila's story is breathtakingly beautiful. It is to date, no doubt in my eyes, Megan Smith's best book. In Stay for Me, she connects you so deeply to these characters that you feel their love, devotion and loss. This book ranks up there in my top books to have ever read or listened to.


    Any additional comments?

    For some reason my audible did not contain the entire story. The last 1 maybe 2 chapters was missing. It ended as Cooper was with the paramedics not allowing me to hear that Laila does indeed die. I know this because I've read the printed version several times. Should I have been new to this book and it cut off, I would have been very upset and felt jipped.

    "I hate it when....(spoiler)"

    I hate it when you get all into the characters and then one of them dies! I read books to feel good not to be bummed out at the end.
    Other that the ending it was a good love story and I did enjoy it. Such a shame.
