From one step to the next I didn’t know what was going to happen. She was 10 when everything started to change in her world, how could this possibly turn out to be what I think it was going to be? Oh wait IT DIDN’T! She grew up but not as Fallyn! Weird? Yes, but you will have to read to find out. Her stranger soon became her savior, her everything. She wanted someone to stay. Fallyn didn’t know what living a normal safe life was like. Could her stranger give her this after the things she saw that dark night?
Connections were made, minds were made up. Everyone always left her. She wanted someone to stay. Her mind was set that she would get exactly what she wanted on a certain day and it could either free her and give her everything she desired or it could splatter her heart and leave her questioning everything. Her stranger or no longer a stranger but a man that she wants to stay. But with the lies and betrayals can there truly be a happily ever after? My jaw dropped on the floor, my eyes exploded outside their sockets and I was shocked. Chelsea took the ending I had wrapped in a nice bow and splattered it. My mind was spinning circles, going left and right, I found myself blinking rapidly to see if what I just read actually happened. I wanted to bang my head against the wall. Everything shattered around me and I was left dumbfounded. Chelsea did it, she shocked me completely. The past, the reasons, the connections, the future, everything was different than what I have envisioned.
Sometimes the stories we read have a happily ever after. It may not be the one we envisioned as the reader but a different happy. Sometimes the guy gets the girl in the end and they make a beautiful life together, sometimes a persons reason for being thrust into your life was to save you or themselves from situations that could crush a persons soul. Love comes in different forms and love has many different meanings, I experienced all of those things in Stay. Chelsea opened my eyes and taught me that it’s not about whether a person leaves your life or if they stay but what they do in between the time of entering and leaving. Nobody really stays forever, we all move and this is that story. Stay will make you think hard about happily ever afters, it will make you experience a different kind of happy. I am hooked. This will not be my last Cameron read. If you love dark romance with twists and turns and lessons to learn than Stay is what you need to read. Because this story, these characters even though they have left me they are in my heart and that’s where they will Stay!
