5 Stars

Can you fall in love with 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, shes 95% 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.

We all remember Matt Eriksson from the previous books. Back then he just got divorced and was fighting with his ex to see his kids more often.
But now, after being alone for 18 months, he's still not seeing much of his four year old twin girls. His hockey team is on the road so much ... Plus his ex is extremely bitchy about things. He only gets them once every other week.
His job is also not really good for relationships - see his divorce!
But ... there's this new spark he feels every time he texts with the girl from his concierge-service-app.

Hailey owns FETCH with her ex-husband.
And important or difficult clients are always handled by the boss - that's why she's handling Matt. She's such a HUGE hockey fan. She's had a crush on him since college!

Focus, Hailey! Thou shalt not perv on clients.

That's why she behaves like a clumsy dork every time she picks up his dog or brings him whatever he ordered.
But online she's braver - and very flirty.
Can a hockey hunk who doesn't ever want to get married again, date his biggest fan - and get an happily ever after out of it????


And by guys I mean all of the heroes of the previous books: Wes & Jamie and most importantly our adorable LOL-inducer BLAKE! ☺☺☺

And even though we have some adorable Blake laughs (we really have!!!), this is Matt's story.
And it's just as adorable!
There's a slight sadness throughout the story, about him not seeing his girls much, and about his broken marriage... Or rather about both Matt's and Hailey's broken marriages. BUT, the story is not sad. It's fun and hilarious and adorable and cute and sexy and... so much more. I loooved it!

It's so adorably funny to watch poor Hailey with Matt. She's so not the confident and tough business woman she usually is when she's in front of him!
And poor Matt. He's not sure what he wants. He doesn't think that he wants something serious - ever again. But he just can't resist this adorable person!

I adored this book!

STAY was such an adorable & hilarious & sexy romance!!! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Matt - this one is MINE!

I really hope we'll hear more about those people - and by more I mean the hockey guys - there's definitely something more coming with some team mates we met here.... But also the #MrDickPic client in Hailey's company!! He would be perfect for Jenny - Hailey's bestie!!! ☺☺☺


ARC received for an honest review

Yesssss!! We are back in WAGs world, and this girl couldn't be happier!

We did meet Matt in the first book, Good Boy, however you can read Stay without having read it first - but why would you want to miss out on any of the goodness?

Matt and Hailey's story, well I just loved it.  From broken marriages to sexy strangers, this book had a bit of everything.  The fact that Matt is a hockey hottie doesn't add to his charms at all (pffff yeah right lol)

I love the to and fro between our lovelies.  I adore that they didn't meet in the usual way -sure, it was through an app but not like you'd think!

Hailey is just too sweet, the way she gets all tongue tied and clumsy around Matt - just makes her that much more relatable.  And Matt is all kinds of swoonworthy.

I LOVE that we got more of people from the earlier book and the Him series.  I adore Wesmie and Blake had me laughing out loud.

Sigh... I have not long read the book and already I am missing them all.

Please Ms Bowen and Ms Kennedy, please don't make us wait too long for more of their goodness.
