**My Review**

Welcome to my stop on the release tour for Allie York’s, Stay! This fantastic read is about a sexy vet tech named Jaxson and just as sexy boutique owner, Blair. Constantly together because of their mutual friends, these two typically engage in all sorts of sexually-charged banter, bonding over their love of all things casual. But once things start really heating up between these two, their previous passion for casual sex and no strings attached is tested to the limits. 

Oh, Allie York…. Where do I get my very own Jaxson? From the second chapter where his point of view was introduced, I was in love. Handsome, rugged, sexy, fit, tattoos, funny, smart, overcame a rough upbringing, loves dogs (especially Ranger)  – what else could I possibly want in a man??

Anyway, I loved both Blair and Jaxson, but especially loved Blair’s confidence in herself and the way she owned her life and her “extracurricular activities” without a car in the world about what anyone else thought. But as much as I loved them both in the beginning, the amazing part was watching Allie York’s writing and characterization pull me into their journeys as if I were right there along with them, watching everything play out. They each had this deeply buried compassion and capacity for love that was beautiful as it slowly revealed itself. 

I have not read the previous novel in the series, Sit, however, it had no impact on my love for this story. Honestly, I found Blair’s best friend Ozma somewhat annoying and was confused by everyone’s obsession with her not knowing anything about any hook-ups or coupling as if she would force them off into an arranged marriage or something. Maybe if I had read Sit I would find her more likable, but I just didn’t see the draw to her.

Anyway, as stated earlier, I absolutely loved this book! Other than my falling madly in love with Jaxson, Stay is sexy, funny, romantic, and makes you feel all the feels you can imagine! Sometimes, writers come up with perfect couples that just click beautifully, and that’s exactly what York created with these two characters.

Jax swaggered over just as the coffee pot beeped. He reached around me, leaning in close to take the pot,
and pouring two cups before putting it back. “You always drink that much? I thought you were a health
freak.” He dumped way too much sugar in the coffee.
        “It’s all about balance.” I shrugged putting a teaspoon of sugar in mine. “I’ll go to the gym tomorrow, and it
will all balance out.” I sipped my coffee, watching him lean against the counter like he belonged in my
kitchen. “Do you go?”
        “To the gym? Yeah, that one across town, Frankie’s.” He stared at the coffee, then me. “I’ve slept with too
many women at World Fitness to go back. It got weird.” I nearly spit my coffee.
        “How many?” I looked into his gray eyes. Maybe it was the daiquiris, but Jax was sexy. In his button down,
all the tattoos were covered, but I knew they were there. His arms had these skulls and stuff on them, but
he never looked like a thug. He looked like a badass. Only Jax could pull it off. When he didn’t answer, I
walked past him to the living room, and he followed.
        “Maybe eight?” Jax sat at the other end of the couch, slouching back in a classic manspread. I curled my
legs under me, trying not to give him a clear shot up my skirt. At least my buzz left me a little dignity.
        “Maybe eight? You don’t know?” I teased, sipping my coffee.
        “No,” Jax said it like he couldn’t give me a number if he tried.
