BLOG TOUR: Stay with Me (Wait for You #3) – J. Lynn + Review & teaser!

Released: September 23rd, 2014

At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.

"That shit is beautiful in its own way, but still fucking beautiful."

J. Lynn never ceases to amaze me (or make me sob like a five year old). With characters that have depths like Jax and Calla, she managed to twist a beautiful story out of all of the ugly in their pasts. The storyline hooked me in from the beginning and sunk me deep within the world of the characters with suspenseful thrill and heart-wrenching romance.
Um, wow.
Like what the hell just happened?
I don’t know why but picking up one of J. Lynn’s books always makes me cry. It sucks but it’s also awesome. I mean, I’ve honestly been so busy that I’ve gotten tired of reading lately but this book revived my love for angst-filled stories. So thank you, J. Lynn, you’ve given me my reading mojo back.
Guys with the name Jax are hot. And yes, I’m referring to Kimberly Lauren’s Beautiful Broken Rules and now to the wonderful Stay with Me. Jax James is a no-bullshit kind of man and I loved that about him. He was definitely not all shy with his affections for Calla even though he can be an idiot at times. He’s a genuinely good guy who can make super hot sexual innuendos (and also other sexual ehem moves too).
We see the world through Calla’s eyes, how she’s battled with lower self-esteem and fear of being looked upon differently by people. But she’s strong. Despite all the bad shit from her past, all the bad shit that’s going to happen in the book, she did not break down. Not once. And I’m so proud of her for that. Of course she got shaken up but she’s smart about dealing with her problems instead of being like those idiotic heroines in romance stories who just throw themselves into dangerous situations claiming that “oh, this is to save him/her”.
Like, no bitch, putting yourself in danger does NOT save people okay.
Calla can be hilarious too with some of her lines. I find myself laughing with whatever’s going on in her head. Love that!
One second I was ready to knee him in the nuts and the next I was thinking of other more pleasant things involving said nuts.
Oh my golly gee, I hoped his shirt just ripped up the sides and fell right off.

Anyway, I can go on and on about this book, not to mention all the cameos made by the previous couples *squeal* I LOOOOVED WAIT FOR YOU and I still haven’t read Jase and Teresa’s story but I will. Soon. I promise ;) And they were adorable and the support they give each other is unbelievable. Friends like that are friends for life.
