This series has the potential to be one of the most memorable and heartwarming love stories ever told--think Notebook, people, it's that moving!

I am so lucky I had the chance to read an ARC of this follow up to Away. Away made me FEEL...laugh, love, smile and then cry my heart out. It stayed with me and then I was given this gift...

Stay is the continuation to Cassandra's journey after a heartbreaking loss and the birth of her son. Aidan goes down in my book-world-history as one of the most

What a sweet and uplifting book...especially after the coma I experienced from "Away". I even actually had to read a book in between these two just to separate myself from the hold I had on Jase.

He gutted me...and how I loved his words in this book also...the letters...oh those letters made this book so freaking emotional that I didn't know half of the time to cry or laugh.

Now...there was one little irk I had with this book and that was I do believe it was drawn out a bit

Months ago when B.A. Wolfe released Away I thought to myself, hmmm, this book it's getting a lot of buzz I should really check it out. Unfortunately time goes by and I never got a chance to read. When I saw that the sequel Stay was getting set to release I told myself, I AM READING THESE BOOKS! No ifs, ands, or buts about it. I had to make the time to read them. Well.... fast forward to today. I am left speechless by B.A. Wolfe and I personally think she's THE best indie authors out there! She ...more

If you didn't read Away then please don't read my review it contains spoilers.

Adorable right!?

I was lucky enough to BETA read Stay It was extremely worth the wait.

My reactions to being offered to BETA:





Now, I absolutely love Jason. HOWEVER getting to know Dan I'm completely smitten with him. He's a dream. I mean come on, look at the above pictures. He's adorbs.

Cassie has done an extreme amount of growing up. I am pretty proud of the woman she has become. I have a feeling it has a lot to do with Jason and the impact he made on her

When I read Away, my heart was pretty much ripped out. Cassie didn’t get the happy ending with Jase that she (and I) so desperately wanted. Cassie comes back to Keaton with her baby boy, trying to let Jase go and move on with her life. The first man she meets that manages to turn her head turns out to be someone she shouldn’t want. Looking after Cassie started out as an obligation for Aidan, but he starts to have strong feelings for Jase’s hazel eyed angel.

It’s not right in so many ways and I

How can you describe a book that speaks to your heart and stays with you days after you've read it?
Both books by this amazing, phenomenal *B.A.Wolfe* have done just that. I've read almost 200 books this year and STAY will always stay with me! Seriously!

You met Cassie in book 1.. who's heart is broken after the death of her boyfriend, Jase. But what happens when a stranger makes her finally feel again after losing the love of her life?

Aidan has been lost since the death of his brother. But he

When I was asked to read this book for review I was seriously in a book funk and hadn't rated anything above a 3.5 in weeks (maybe months). But, as a big fan of B.A.'s first book I was happy to read it.

Well I am SO glad I did, because I was blown away. Not only has she grown as a writer, but her attention to all the little details that make books hard to forget and just an incredible read, were spot on!! Her writing reminds me SO much of the amazing CoHo with this book (very

In my review for book one I said I was "blown away" and here in this one I'll say there was no way I'd "stay away" from reading this one ASAP.

Be prepaired to keep the tissues close by once again as you read this emotional story about continuing to live after you lose someone you love. Cassie lost Jason, but now a year later she has a chance at forever with someone else if only she's willing to try.

Aidan doesn't know why his brother asked him to keep an eye on her, but Jason knew what he was

This book did not just hold my breath, it held my heart and mind captive. I don't think I have read a more emotionally involved book ever!

Reading Away was absolutely life changing. I was blown away and gutted all at the same time. At the end of Away I had to know what happened to the rest of Cassie's story.

Stay is written in the same beautiful writing style. It has the same intense feel and flow and is undeniably amazing. The characters are touching and real. The second

Finally, the much anticipated sequel of Away. We all fell in love with Jase and Cassie in Away. Now, Cassie has a second chance of love, but what she doesn't expect is falling for her first love's brother, Dan.

Stay took us yet on another emotional journey of loss, healing, and second chances. I fell in love with Aidan right away. I panicked a few times through this book as well because you know those twists is what makes the read the best. The best teary moments are with baby Jase and

I don't even know where to begin with this review. B.a. Wolfe had me screaming, laughing, swooning, and down right ugly crying through out this entire book.

In book one, Away, we have our hearts ripped out and shoved down our throats by Wolfe but in Stay she revives us. She builds up our hope before graciously ripping our hearts over and over again. Only this time, she stabs it while it is still beating before she rams it through our chest and ever so carefully puts it back into place. It was the

Stay (Keaton #2) by B.A. Wolfe

Please don't read this review if you haven't read the first book in the series, Away.
After once again seemingly losing everything that mattered, Cassandra is left with her new baby, and her best friend and attempting to move on after losing someone that meant everything to her. Yet somewhere out there, her lost love's brother is trying to find Cassie, to look after her, protect her, and keep a promise.

There are no words that are good enough to describe how phenomenal this book was!!! This was a fantastic sequel to Away. I was so devastated at the end of Away that I was nervous yet excited to read this book. I loved Jase & Cassie together and I was nervous about her and Aidan being together. Throughout this whole book, Jase was there in spirit. He was on everyone's mind and in their hearts. He helped guide Aidan & Cassie individually and together. "Green light Jase."

Wow! Rarely do I read a book that leaves me so full that I can't get the words out. But Stay was off-the-charts, can't eat, can't sleep, don't-bother-me-I'm-reading-good! The characters are presented so well I'd swear I know them. REALLY know them. Like they live next door maybe. And the mark of a good romance novel is the emotion it evokes, right? Well, let me tell you . . . I chuckled, I cried, I swooned, I sobbed, then sobbed a little more, and swooned yet again. Because every girl wants a ...more

This is not the sort of book you wish to race through in one setting or even read in one day.
It is the type of story you hate to put down, but love to anticipate getting back into.
You do not want it to end.
You love these characters we first met in AWAY and get to know better in STAY.
You want to be in their inner circle, to have them as your best friends.
You'll want to be included in and invited to every event and celebration in Keaton.

"The word ‘stay’ comes in many forms and phrases. Stay here, stay there, stay away, stay close, don’t stay, and nowhere to stay. The term that best fits my situation . . . the only place to stay. I was home."

Wow.! I don't know where to begin with. This story is just amazing. Emotional. Heart breaking. Beautiful.

The first book AWAY made me one emotional girl that seriously broke my heart into pieces and with STAY I can say that my heart have been healed

Not sure if I had insomnia and was reading to kill the time or if I had insomnia because I couldn't put this book down last night but I was about 50 pages in before last night and finished reading it in 6 hours. I cried, I laughed (quietly as my husband was sleeping next to). I loved the continuance of this story, of Cassie's story. Of the Sweet Tea, the letters, the cowboy boots. All if it was perfect. Concluding with the epilogue. Can't wait to see what is next (Mel and Moose?!?!)

Rocking my finest yoga pants, a/k/a the only pair not thrown up on, I stepped further inside the shop. The scent of freshly ground coffee and warm, sweet pastries was so beguiling that I didn’t make it far before my zombie-like body bumped into an innocent bystander, spilling his large iced tea all down the front of his body.

Mental note…next time, don’t leave said house for any reason.

The tea dripped from his baby blue button-up shirt, went all the way down his perfectly ironed black slacks,

I fell in love with Away by B.A. Wolfe and I wasn't sure that this book could top her first book, but it has. This book is an amazing journey where the reader is able to learn more about Cassie, Dan, Moose, and the gang. I felt like I was meeting up with friends that I hadn't seen in awhile, and when the book was finished, I wasn't ready to leave them. The author continued to develop the characters that we already knew and

Received this book as an ARC for an honest review....

And let me tell you honestly that this book was one of my favorites in a very long time! I liked Away very much and I laughed and cried like a big fat baby... But man Stay well let me just say get out the Kleenex because this one isn't much better on your tear ducts...

I was immediately drawn to the characters of this series. Cassandra continues to heal in this book after the loss of Jason and the birth of her son while learning to love again

I liked it.. But I just missed Jase too much.. The void is too big to fill. Away left me heartbroken, and frankly I still feel it..

The development of Cassie & Aidan/Dan's relationship was just so odd to me.. It seemed out of the blue.. And call me crazy, but it bothered me how often Cassie was leaving baby Jase. There were parts I really loved, and parts I didn't really care for.

A huge theme of this story was based around letters Jase and Aidan had wrote to each other.. It just so happened

I really don't know where to start. This book hit on so many emotion...I cried, laughed, screamed, fell in love and wanted to bitch slap a few people (shay and Anna your on that list).

I was a crying mess for most if this book..watching Dan, Cassie and the family heal, love and grow ..looking at the life that Jason lead. I was heartbroken in the first book, but this second book was the perfect healer.

I didn't think "Away" could be topped, but Ms Wolfe took the first book and sent it to unimaginable heights with "Stay." Aidan was truly Cassie's Batman in dso many amazing ways. Their special love began as a little twinkle and exploded into a trillion stars throughout the book. Ms Wolfe couldn't have honored our love for "Away" any more than she did with Stay. From the first to the last page, nothing lets you down. Aidan will be nearly impossible to beat as best book boyfriend ever!! Even when ...more
Away may have broken my heart, but Stay helped put it back together, piece by shattered piece.

I understand now why I felt there was something missing in the connection between Jason and Cassandra in Away- it was never really meant to be.

I loved Jason, but Dan, oh Dan…you stole my heart. You were the man Cassie was always meant to be with, even your brother knew this and set you on the path to her.

This was a heartwrenching, but sweet, emotional journey for Aidan and Cassie, and it was just what

Jesus! I thought Away made me an emotional mess but it was nothing compared to Stay. To not only have Cassie, Jade, baby Jade, Mel, Moose and crew to fall in love with throw in Aidan and my heart was reading to combust. I felt every emotion known to mankind in this book and was a sobbing mess throughout it also, it honestly touched me to the core. Fantastic, brilliant, amazing, beautiful, heart wrenching and pretty much perfect is how I would sun up this book.
