One Line: Love me some Toby and Jared action!

In My Opinion: Add to cart!

Stay is the third installment in the Empire Chronicles and after that crazy ending in Search, I was eager to see what would happen to Casey and the gang. So many secrets are revealed in Stay and the truth of Casey’s past and family comes to light. This book focuses more on the bears and you don’t see as much Pteron action as before, but that was fine. Learning about the bears and their way of life was pretty fascinating. As far as bad guys go, I kind of suspected who it was, but I just didn’t realize how deep or how long it went on. Alyssa did a great job with her twists and turned and definitely kept it interesting for me.

Easily the best parts of this book revolved around Toby and Casey. I really love them as a couple. Toby cares so much for Casey and I liked that he could offer her that sense of security and stability, especially now when her life is filled with such chaos. Some might think he comes on pretty strong, but I think that’s just par for the course with these Pteron boys. They love and live fiercely. It’s part of their charm. Toby and Casey pretty much make a decision on the fate of their relationship in this book and I liked the direction that Alyssa took it in.

Alyssa left the ending of Stay pretty wide open and I’m dying to know how things turn out for Vera and Jared. I was hoping to get more of their relationship in this book, but I guess Stay was more for Casey than anything else. My poor Jared! He may be a jerk most of the time, but he has a good heart. I just want to see him get his HEA. As usual, I breezed right through this book. Alyssa’s writing just does that to me. While this wasn’t as captivating as the rest of her books have been for me, I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing how it all ends.
