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!

Another amazing book!

I love every book I've ever read written by this dynamic duo and there is no exception with Stay. I loved getting to visit old friends (Wesme!!) from previous books.

Great story however:

Great story however Lucy Rivers totally ruined it for me. I went into this story because of Jacob morgan but I have to say Lucy Rivers who did 3/4 of the narration was horrible. If they had used another GOOD female narrator this would have been a total 5 Star book. I don’t usually leave typed reviews but I just had to say something. All the reviews I read were giving her so much credit. After the second chapter I thought “you people have no idea what a good female narrator is.” Jacob morgan is the best actor I’ve ever heard on Audible and pray he doesn’t give up this job to other things. This man makes me feel every character he portrays, HE IS. So maybe listen to other samples of Lucy rivers before purchasing this book. I could hardly make it to the end. Don’t always listen to reviews. Do some homework before spending your hard earned money on a good book done bad by horrible narrators. Ok I’m done ranting. But oh!! Jacob morgan!!!!!!!

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.

WAGS...

I liked this story, different, and fun, and still in the world the authors built. I love my male narrators because they gave me Jamie and Wes, who I'm forever in love with. It was worth continuing the series. Thank you Sarina and Elle.

enjoyable

Two grown adults behave like adults and get their business handled & get their adult business handled while coping with exes and hockey travel. A few scenes occur with the cast from earlier books. It’s got drama and stakes/obstacles, but low angst. Just a pleasant story all around, and a pleasant listen via audio. Recommend the book and the series.

Not impressed

This was $1.99 audio added to the $4.99 ebook, which makes it less than an Audible credit. Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy individually are two of my favorite authors. Together, they are phenomenal. That said, this is my least favorite collaboration of theirs. Even being my least favorite, I’d still give it 3 stars. Jacob Morgan was great as always.. I have mixed feelings about Lucy Rivers in this book. I found myself speeding up her parts to make it somewhat enjoyable. Performance rating is 5 for Morgan and 3 for Rivers.

Matt Ericksson is a hockey player (minutely mentioned in the Him/Us series and a little more in the first book of the WAGS series, Good Boy) who has been divorced for 18 months or two years or something that we’re not exactly sure because the number keeps changing. Hailey Taylor Emory is the owner of an online “personal assistant” service called “Fetch” and is also divorced.

Hailey becomes Matt’s assistant and they flirt online for a bit. When an emergency job requires a personal delivery to Matt and they meet in person, sparks fly.

It’s a cute story and overall enjoyable. Unfortunately, there’s some issues that really detract from the overall experience.
*there isn’t a consistent timeline. Matt’s twin daughters are 4 when he gets a divorce, they’re 4 throughout the book, and they’re 4 in the epilogue. Ummm...
*Hailey’s chat name is “HTE” which Matt mentally turns in to “hottie” in his mind. But even after they meet and spend time together ~ 90% of the time he continues to call her “hottie” instead of her name. It’s sort of cute occasionally, but it felt somewhat impersonal or dehumanizing or something “less than”.
*Hailey’s character is inconsistent. She’s a professional who owns her own business. Yet she’s a blubbering mess around Matt for 50% of their interactions. Like beyond a few goofy interactions to “why on earth does he find that appealing?” There’s even a chapter titled “Loss of IQ” and then she proceeds to lose her IQ. I’m not sure whether 100% of this is due to how she was written or how Lucy Rivers narrated her.

I do like how Matt & Hailey navigate life after divorce. There’s some angst ~ but it doesn’t feel too OTT. Matt’s interactions with his daughters is adorable. It’s definitely an HEA and the epilogue is precious.

I really enjoyed Him, Us, and Good Boy ~ but I’ll probably never listen to this again.

I’m a little disappointed that the book obviously set up for Will O’Connor for his own story, but two years later “Stay” remains the last book of this series.

Easy great reads...

Great easy read. Just makes your heart melt. There doesn't always have to be endless heartbreaking drama before a book can be called great.

This just leaves you with s nice warm feeling all the way through. I love Matt!! .. such a great lead character

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.

Hockey fun!

A great story with zero angst and funny banter between Halley and Matt. I really liked the camaraderie between the team players and Matt’s two daughters were delightful! Having said that, for me, I didn’t think there was anything really special about this story though. Sure it was sweet and fun but it just lacked the oomph factor. I loved the narrators Jacob Morgan and Lucy Rivers for this audiobook.

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.
