STAY – A Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy Review


Ooooh forbidden romance! *grabs tea and straps in for a sexy ride*

Welcome to Fetch, Inc. where your every wish is their command…except when your one wish is for your dog-walker to be the woman of your dreams….and your client to be the man you’ve had a crush on since you first understood what crushes even WERE.

Hailey is a no-holds-barred business woman when it comes to running and respecting her company, Fetch, an elite delivery and procurement organization. But she’s got an inkling that her top client is non other than hot hockey star Matt Eriksson. The man she’s now caught herself daydreaming about and flirting with! Can she cross the line she’s drawn herself and dare to enter in to a relationship that could risk her life’s work?

Matt can’t help but daydream that his personal assistant, aka HTE the Hottie, at Fetch is none other than the stunning woman that graces their website’s homepage. But when the girl of his dreams shows up to walk his dog he’s got no choice but to go after her like never before. He’s not looking for love after his wife left him and tore apart the home he had with his two beautiful little girls. But what harm could come from flirting with the woman who’s fulfilled his every daily need?

Let me just say that Matt and Hailey are H-O-T hot…the tension between these two is soooo delectable. Not only do they have the sexual chemistry to mix, but Hailey knows Matt inside and out from a new perspective; buy helping create the new home and life for him, she’s got insight where others don’t. And Matt has this natural ability to be sweet, charming, and devilishly naughty just when it’s called for to bring Hailey around to his side.

Definitely a sexy, fun read and I’m excited for more WAGs!



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.
