With one look, I’m his . . .
With one touch, he’s mine . . .
With one kiss, it changes everything between us . . .
I’ve been famous since I can remember. Singing, acting, dancing—I’ve done it all. The tabloids cover my every move, but I don’t want that anymore. I want to be normal, whatever that is.
When I leave Hollywood for college in Vermont, I’m on my own for the first time in my life. This is my chance to figure out who I am and what I want in life.
But it’s a lot harder than I expected. I can’t escape my image. Classes are difficult, and I’m struggling. And then there’s Caleb Fox.
Sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox.
Caleb is the one man who doesn’t want to use me. He breaks down my walls. He challenges me. He wants me. And I just don’t know if I can give him the same—or if he’ll stick around when he finds out my shameful secret that the tabloids haven’t managed to uncover.
Dating him is risky enough, but loving him could break me.
This book melted my freaking heart to the core! Caleb Fox is one considerate and down to earth sweet heart who completely knocked Hailey (and me) off her feet. Even as she fights it she can't help but let him into her heart. When things get crazy, he's there, comforting and supporting her. He is dreamy and so are his friends!

Plenty of times I've read books about the guy rock star and the normal every day girl. But, Stay With Me is about the girl rock star and the normal every day guy! Elyssa has mixed it up and what a phenomenal surprise it is! Thrown into the spotlight as a child and held there by a controlling parent, Hailey struggles to find herself in adulthood as she branches out on her own and finally does whatever she wants; which in this case is attend college.

Hailey's mother is crazy! She's a horrible person and parent and I can't believe the crap she continues to put poor Hailey through. The only good thing her mother does is build up her strength to shut her out completely!

On the opposite of the spectrum we have Caleb's family. A caring and strong unit that Hailey blends right into. His sisters were adorable and star struck, Elyssa couldn't have painted a better picture of them! My favorite member of the Fox household (besides Caleb) was Daphne (Hailey's new best friend and Caleb's younger sister) she was spunky and held her own secrets. Her relationship with one of Caleb's friends was an added bonus to the already great story!

 Stay With Me is a terrific terrific read, one that I couldn't put down until the end. I felt so many feelings throughout the book, so many emotions, and so much to love! The words flow easily from page to page and the love story is powerful and consumed me completely!
