Publisher's Summary

The number one New York Times best-selling author of Wait for You and Be with Me returns with a daring tale that pushes boundaries.... in which a young woman learns that you can't run from your past - no matter how far you go.

At twenty-one, 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.

    "STAY with this Book"

    First, I screwed up the title in the review of Be With Me...I mentioned Stay with Me and it should have been Stay with You! Now, whew! THIS book was my FAVORITE so far. I LOVED LOVE LOVED it...the characters of Calla and Jax were just terrific and beautifully constructed. It's another compelling story of how two damaged souls can find each other, dance around hidden emotions, omit truths and still manage to make it. Once again, Sophie Eastlake, who could read the phonebook to me and I'd rate it 5 stars, offers the reader not just a reading of the book but a deeply moving performance.

    "Best book in the series! (So far..)"
    If you could sum up Stay with Me in three words, what would they be?

    Fabulous story line!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the first two books in the series, but the story lines were not incredibly suspenseful. In this book, there are some things that you figure out along the way, but there's a new challenge for Calla around every turn. I only have an hour left in the book, but I STILL haven't figured out the how/why Jacks seems to have known Calla from previously... eagerly anticipating getting that question answered!


    Which character – as performed by Sophie Eastlake – was your favorite?

    I love, love, LOVE the love story in this book and Jacks is hot in every way, but Calla is my favorite.... I can relate to her story to some degree, and love her strength and courage to keep moving forward after each hit.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing negative I can say about this book (and the series) is that I wish the narrator could distinguish the characters voices just a little more. Still.. she's a fabulous narrator and easy to listen to.

    Narration - Sophie Eastlake - Kick Ass

    Honestly, Sophie could probably read me the phone book and I'd enjoy it. She's so good.

    This is some J Lynn Redemption after Be with Me!

    What I love about J Lynn is her ability to write the sweetest, most dreamy men. I mean Jax! Oh Jax! He is just the most wonderful, sweet, sexy, bad ass, protective, hot, oh, I could just go on and on about him, MAN!

    I loved Calla too, BUT, I did find one aspect of the book a little annoying. The repetitive use of Holy 'insert silly word'. It was funny and kind of cute at first, but then it just kept going and going and going and was a little overkill, but that is the only thing that bothered me and kept this from being a 5 star read for me.

    I laughed, I struggled to hold back tears, I sighed, I swooned, I felt so sad at times for Calla and all she kept being put through in this book. Nothing like kicking a character when she's down. There's a few misunderstandings and a couple things that I figured out early on, but not to the point of ruining the story for me.

    This one is SO moving into my favorite pile!!!!

    That is All!

    I have loved every book in this series the first being my favourite and is a repeat offender in my audio must haves. This is wow just as good and keeps you wanting to never stop listening!
    I loved the narrator as well.
    I don't give all star reviews to just any book unless it was worth my time and mula this totally is.
    It must be said again hot guy brigade swoon!!

    "loved the story"

    I liked this book. it had a very different plot line that kept me interested with the book. Not so much that I couldn't quit listening when other things came up but definitely coming back to listen. I loved Jackson and Calla. I liked the way the characters from the first two books in the series came in to this story periodically because I loved those characters too. I think that Sophie Westlake does a really good job as a narrator. I also really liked that this book was a 14 + hour listen. felt like I got a little more with my credit..

    "Woah."

    Sophie put a life on this one..

    The only unrealistic thing about this is all of them aging at 20ish with the kind of situation they all have.. Ive finished all 5 books and that is the only flaw that i saw.
    I like how each book tied up to the next one..
    Stay with me is by far the best of the series.. It maybe too much to handle if you look at it but considering the jax was an ex marine and what happened to calla, it make sense to me..
    J.Lynn is the shit.. I love it

    "LOVE this series and the narrator!"

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this book, and this series. Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my all time favorites. Then to top it off, Sophie Eastlake as the narrator! I LOVE every single one of Sophie Eastlake's narrations that I have heard. Out of all the books in this series, Stay With Me is my absolute number 1! I completely adore Calla and Jax!!

    Story
    "Romantic Suspense+Dramatic Thriller = a great read"

    J Lynn sure knows how to write characters who don't have the best childhood story. And this story had a plot line that I didn't quite expect, certainly didn't connect with at first, but loved in the end.

    The story opens with Calla finding out that her account has been emptied out and the only person who had access to that money was her mother...who is also a junkie. Calla has to find her mom so that she can hopefully get some of that money back and finish school so she can finally make a better life for herself.

    Calla doesn't realize what kind of trouble her mother has gotten into until she finds herself caught in the middle of the threats. She has to rely on take-charge, sexy Jax to help search for her mom. Jax is very forward in how attracted he is to Calla, but since all she can see are her scars, she doesn't trust his feelings.

    This story follows the romantic suspense of Jax and Calla, as well as the dramatic thriller of finding Calla's mother before the bad guys do. I enjoyed following along on the ride.
