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, she's 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.

Book Review: 4 stars


When Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy write a story together, it’s a must read for me! It’s just like that and I know that I will love it because this formula is perfect for me.

Stay is a light-hearted slow burn romance story, the second book in their WAG’s series. In this installment, the authors brings us the story of Matthew Eriksson “Matt” and Hailey Taylor Emery, both divorced and with so many reservations about what to do or expect in the matter of love, but with so much attraction thurs each other, it was impossible to ignore.

I fell in love with them from the beginning. I loved everything about this book, I adored the way the authors presented how they met, their interactions, and the particular way their relationship evolve in the process to know each other, I loved to read about Matt kids and his love for them, and the dogs!

It was amazing to know how are Blake and Jess doing, and of course to “see” a little of my favorite couple ever Wes and Jamie!

If you are looking for a low angst and low drama story, this is your book.

I just hope this duet keep writing books together, I’ll be here waiting patiently.
