Waiting on Wednesday #9: Stay with Me by J. Lynn


Waiting on Wednesday is weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine and it spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly waiting for. Today I'm going to write about Stay with Me by J. Lynn. 


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.


Wait for You is one of my favorite books of all time, I've probably reread it at least five times and I'm still as much in love with those characters as I was before. The second book, Be with Me wasn't as amazing as the first novel but I still loved it. 

Now about Stay with Me. I really liked Calla and ever since being introduced to her I wanted her to have her own book. She seems like such a wonderful character and I can't wait to meet with Jax. 



Don't forget to tell me in the comments what are you "waiting on" this week. Leave a comment to your post and I'll sure as hell check it out. 

Happy reading. :))

  1. I'm looking forward to dive into one of Armentrout's book at one time, and I'm a bit afraid that once I start, I'll be totally hooked and read everything she's ever published in the course of a few months or so x)

    1. Her writing is a bit addictive that's for sure, I love her books even if I have only read one book from the Lux series plus Don't Look Back and of course the Wait for You series. So basically I read books from her in three different genres and they were all freaking amazing. I can't wait to read White Hot Kiss, I heard so many amazing things about it.

  2. I loved Wait for You! I haven't made time yet to read the second book, in fact I was questioning whether I should read it on my Top Ten Tuesday post yesterday. I'm going to have to give it a try, so I'm ready for this one! Great pick!

    1. I read it on a blog that Jennifer L. Armentrout said that Stay with Me is her favorite book from the series yet. I'm not sure if this is true or not because I only read it somewhere and never see the actual post.
      Thanks :)

  14. Wait for You is one of my faves as well and I actually debated making Stay With Me my WOW for this week since I like you also really liked Calla but opted for Echoes of Scotland Street this week instead.

  17. I love everything Jennifer L. Armentrout writes. She publishes so many books that it is hard to keep up with. I have only read Wait For You. I need to continue on with the series.

    1. I know, I can't possibly imagine how the hell she can think of so many different stories at the same time and work on them. The second book wasn't as good as the first but it was a solid 4star book for me. Hope you'll like it. :))

  18. Welp, I've never read a JLA book, but gosh if I don't like the sound of this one! I do wonder why the cover says it's by Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J. Lynn. What's the point of the pen name if they're just going to put her real name there? Only my musings... :) Great pick!!

    1. I'm just guessing but I think she writes contemporary romances as J. Lynn, it made better sense when she didn't write mystery too by her own name. Anyways, I'll never get this either. Funny thing is that when I read Wait for You I had no idea that JLA was J. Lynn, I didn't really look at the cover because it was an ebook. Then I was like: Oh my God, she's the author who wrote Obsidian too, what a surprise!? I'm soo clueless sometimes. lol

  19. I've read Wait for You and really liked it! I'm sorry the second one was a little disappointing for you so I hope you'll love this one as much as you did the first one. Anyway, I love JLA's paranormal series and I'm looking forward to catching up to her contemp books. :)
