Publisher's Summary

Can you fall for someone you've never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch - an anonymous virtual assistant service - is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson. Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95 percent sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He's still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth - that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won't show her pretty face.

But it's nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can't fix. Hailey can't resist the offer. Matt can't resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn't have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera, and exploding ovaries.

Another good book by this dynamic duo! I have to save I love the idea of Hailey's business and it made for a fun story line too! Matt & Hailey's story was sweet and playful and very sexy. I have a serious love for single dad's in books so I knew I'd love Matt from the beginning. I love that he is trying to be the best dad he can even if his ex doesn't always make it easy. This book left me feeling happy :)

The narration was 100X better than book 1 for me. They were perfect!

Excellent

Story was very entertaining. Narration was excellent. You will be able to relate if you were ever divorced. It's not depressing. Has an great HEA. I will listen again.

Another awesome collaboration for these authors

What did you love best about Stay?

I always love the humor these gals bring to their writing. Although this one wasn't quite as laugh out loud as Good Boy, it had plenty of giggles for me. My favorite scene was definitely at the poker table with some of our favorite guys from previous books in the series. Meeting them again and hearing their banter was AWESOME.

Which character – as performed by Jacob Morgan and Lucy Rivers – was your favorite?

Definitely loved Matt as performed by Jacob Morgan. This narrator just gets better and better with every book he does. Lucy Rivers was just okay for me. I really didn't care for the way she read the male voices.

Any additional comments?

I love this series, as well has Him and Us, and hope Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy continue to write together. I can't wait to hear if there will be a book 3.

Great story, poorly narration

The story itself is really fun to read. However, the narration was so disappointing. The characters never really came to life and it felt forced at times. I'm a huge fan of both authors books, but the narrators missed the mark on this one.

Hailey and Matt!

Hailey has been divorced for 18 months after her husband, also the only boyfriend she has ever had, said that they were better friends than spouses. She and her ex are still friends and they are partners in a business called Fetch where they will get whatever their clients need whenever they need it and will deliver it to them which is how she met Matt.

Matt is a professional hockey player and divorced father to twin girls. His marriage broke up because of his schedule and it has led him to believe that because of that he is not meant for a relationship but who could resist this sexy sweet man?

When the dogwalker that Hailey sent to Matt’s apartment shows through security footage that he is more interested in his house than his dog he calls Hailey to assist as he is out of town. Hailey takes it upon herself to personally look after his dog and Matt is intrigued and attracted to his dog walker.

A relationship ensues but they must both overcome the baggage of their pasts and it begins with Matt showing Hailey her sexy side and Hailey showing Matt that he is relationship material. I loved both these characters as Hailey is feisty and Matt is the perfect boyfriend. The banter between them is humorous, especially their texts, or should be say sexts, and their chemistry is off the charts.

This is my first book by this author but she has made a new fan and the next on my list is the first book in this series. I loved the narrators and I think this may be my favorite audible book but if not it is definitely near the top!

Sweet story, but all of a sudden it ended

I enjoyed the story, but the ending felt rushed. All of a sudden the epilogue was going... Also, the female narrator's "male" voice was a little wonky.

Awwweee!

I loved this series. Even the teary parts. I am glad that my "unanswered" questions, were eventually answered. The characters and narration was awesome. There is nothing that I didn't like. Thanks for the hours of entertainment.

Yes please!!!

I will STAY. Not sure why I never left a review after the first couple of times I listened to it. This is one of my favorite listens. I laugh, I laugh and I blush.
Bravo! Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy
Bravo!!! Lucy Rivers and Jacob Morgan. I swear Jacob Morgan can read me the phone book and I would swoon!

Thanks all for brightening my day at Chemo. Truly sitting in Chemo with a wicked smile is not the norm. I can tell you everyone wanted to know what I was up too!!!

Great story, Jacob is amazing narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, really enjoyed it. Would recommend.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely Matt, he's swoon worthy

What about Jacob Morgan and Lucy Rivers ’s performance did you like?

Jacob was AMAZING as always. I love everything that he narrates! Lucy was good when narrating as Hailey, but her mens voices are really not great. She makes the men sound slow and a little dumb.

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

Yes, it made my heart wrench a little here and there, but generally, its just a nice easy story with a HEA. Sometimes it's nice not to have your heart repeatedly torn in two by a story. This one was just a really pleasant read where you could feel the love.

Loved the story

I read Stay in one day. I loved it. Jacob Morgan's narration was fantastic. I was a little disappointed though that the female narrator made Matt sound like a stoned surfer dude. However overall I really enjoyed this one.
