Stephen Hastings is a control freak.
He’s arrogant. He’s smart as a whip and sexy AF.
He has too much money. He’s bossy, and he’s usually right.
All I saw were his clear blue eyes, tight ass, and ripped torso.
I gladly handed him my V-card that night, ten years ago.
I was so stupid. I swore I’d never be that stupid again…
Emmy Barton works for a dry cleaner?
Yes, that Emmy Barton—long, blonde hair, bright blue eyes, pretty smile…
Sexy little ass. Smart mouth.
She was the only girl who interested me, but I was leaving to be an officer in the Navy.
Now I’m home, running my business, my life is perfectly ordered until I bump into her, divorced and struggling to make ends meet.
I hate seeing her like this. I hate that she married Burt “The Dick” Dickerson. What an asshole.
She says she hates me, but when we fight, it’s all heat and lust.
I won’t leave her this way.
She will let me help her and her son. She will stay…
It’s a thin line between love and hate, and this line is on fire.
A mistake like that I’d be willing to make again. And again…and again.
STAY IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2019! Tia Louise NEVER disappoints when it comes to her stories and I devour them all in one sitting. I haven’t found a book of hers that I don’t get completely hooked. Stephen and Emmy’s story may be my absolute favorite from her.
Everything about this story is AMAZING. It was full of steaminess, it had angst and everything about it just felt so real. I love enemies to lovers and this one is great, Emmy truly has a dislike for Stephen based on their past together and who could blame her. I would have felt the same way if I was in her shoes. Their chemistry is kindle melting hot both in and out of the bedroom.
Eli, that boy stole my heart. I don’t know how anyone could not instantly fall in love with him. You can’t help but root for this sweet little boy throughout the entire story and want everything to work out for him in the end. I could have done without his father, but he also helps the overall plot of this story.
Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this book ASAP because it is truly AMAZING in every possible way. Meet your new favorite hero Stephen Hastings, because he has been worth the wait.
