~ Synopsis ~
Fate took Cassandra down a path she never expected. Then a small town in Colorado gave her exactly what she needed—until tragedy left her heartbroken and devastated. Alone with only her child and her memories, Cassie struggled to put her life back together, one day at a time, piece by piece. Finding love again was something she never thought possible. That was, until she ran into an unlikely stranger who flipped her entire world on its axis. Aidan had a secret locked away in his heart; one that would surely send Cassie running the second she discovered it. He held onto her closely and kept his secret guarded, but one careless mistake could reveal all. Their friendship was strong, their moments beautiful, and the love that brewed between them intense—something neither denied. The only problem? Cassie was slowly letting him into her life. Could she let herself get close to the one person she didn’t think she should? Her mind tells her to run, but her heart tells her to stay.
5 AMAZING STARS!!
* * PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ AWAY BEFORE
READING THIS REVIEW/BOOK * *
B.A. Wolfe has done it again. I loved Away
one of my top 10 books. One of my top 5 books that made me cry like a baby.
Well I can say that Stay will now be added to that list! The name of this book
is perfect because this book will Stay with your forever!
Where do I even start with this review? One
minute I am laughing my ass off and then I am just crying like a baby. The book
starts out with Dan remembering the day that his brother died, and this totally
just broke me in two. (Me even writing this review and just thinking about it I
am in tears. I fell in love with Jase in Book 1) I remember sending a message
to B.A. saying… OMG I for real just snorted… Then not even 15 mins later saying
to her I am tears over here and that won’t stop. And also saying, my heart is
broken. As much as I wanted this story I didn't realized how hard it would be
to see Jases name again.
So in Stay it follows Cassie and Dan (Dan
is Jase’s brother). You learn how Cassie is living without Jase and how it is
being a new single mom. You learn more about the asshole that is baby Jase’s
daddy. (I could kill him btw). You learn how Dan is after dealing with the loss
of his brother. You also get Mel and Moose in this story (Which I am really
really hoping she writes a book about them).
So I am going to end my review and just say
if you want a book/series that is going to make you cry like a baby then you
need to read Away and Stay. B.A. has done an amazing job! I couldn't put this
book down! I just love her writing style, she truly is an amazing author!
Chapter 1 – One Year Ago
My hand shot left and landed on the alarm clock, silencing its incessant beeping. There was no point even setting it. I’d been awake for hours, anyway, but inside my nerves were having a hay day. Heartbeats thudded against my chest as I sucked in deep breaths trying to calm myself.
“Fuck it,” I muttered, kicking my heavy comforter off.
I swung my legs over the edge of the bed and ran a hand through my messy morning hair. My eyes traveled to the phone on my nightstand. I picked it up, sent a quick message to my brother, then tossed it beside me on the bed and made my way to the kitchen in nothing but my boxers. After dumping coffee grinds into the maker and setting the machine to brew, I braced my arms against the white countertop and stared down mindlessly while I waited. Your brain knew when something was important. It wouldn’t let you think of anything else. It was all-consuming. Today, it might just be the death of me.
I filled my lucky Denver Bronco’s mug and paced my way through the house. Wearing a path in the floor was the only thing slowing my thoughts. I downed a few sips and stopped in front of a tall bookshelf. A covered box containing all my letters from Jase was nestled there.
It had started out as a joke, but neither of us could stop writing. I told him I had a mailbox at college and then every week I had a letter waiting for me. And every week I’d write him back. I saved them all. His latest had me smiling hard. He was happy. Really happy—thanks to her. I needed to meet that girl. My eyes caught a glimpse of the clock; it was nearly time.
I took a shower and slipped on a pair of worn jeans, a plain tee, and my Nikes. Sucking in a deep breath, I grabbed my keys and left, bracing myself for the day ahead.
I was only an hour into my drive when the red engine light caught my eye. It came on every once in a while, so I pushed it to the back of my mind. My foot pressed a little harder on the gas pedal. As the needle on the speedometer crept higher, a new light on the dashboard lit up. And then it happened—my car started to shut down. “Fuck.” I banged my fist at the wheel as the car slowed. But no amount of banging or cursing helped. I veered to the shoulder of the highway, dodging car after car. Finally, the piece of crap stopped dead.
“No, no, no. Don’t do this to me now.” I pounded the steering wheel again, ready to beat it to death. “Not today. Damn it!” I reached for my phone in the cup holder, dialed the number for Triple A, and within minutes the rep said a tow truck would be on its way. Estimated time of forty-five minutes. Great.
It was too important of a day to be starting out like this. I only prayed things turned around.

~ About the Author ~

These days, her life is anything but calm, and there isn’t one thing she’d want to change. B.A. spends all her free time either furiously typing stories on her laptop or happily reading through her endless T BR on her Kindle. Her list of favorites would be long enough to fill a book, but most would likely fall under the romance category. She is a sucker for a good love story that makes her cry, and an amazing book boyfriend who will melt her heart. ‘Away’ is B.A. Wolfe’s debut novel.
