Book Review, Trailer: Just Stay by Michelle Abbott

Title: Just Stay 

Author: Michelle Abbott 

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance 

Publication Date: May 16, 2014 

Tour Host: DRC Promotions

The last place Pia wants to be is on a family vacation in a sleepy Cornish village. She's anticipating two weeks of mind-numbing boredom. Then she meets Trey, a local boy. He's absolutely gorgeous. The trouble is — he knows it. He's arrogant and egotistical, and Pia intends to avoid him at all costs. But Trey is not the kind of guy who gives up easily. When he sets his sights on Pia, her resistance is futile. It's just a holiday romance, some light-hearted fun, right? But one of them is about to discover that still waters do, indeed, run deep. When what lurks beneath the surface finally erupts, the consequences may prove to be catastrophic.

For ages 17+ due to sexual content and strong language


My Rating:   

Favorite Quotes:

“My brain freezes and I gape at her with my mouth open.  They think I know who he is.  I can’t tell them I don’t know his name.  What do I say?  He opens his mouth, but before he can speak I jump in.  “His name’s Ima Jerkoff,” I announce.  I notice Mum and Dad’s eyes widen in shock.  Ha, get out of that one, jerk.  I fold my arms and smirk at him.  He covers his mouth with his hand; he appears to be having a coughing fit.”

My Review:

This was cute and sweet story of young love that blossoms from a vacation romance into a little more, and does so rather quickly.  It is a role reversal from what I usually expect, as the one being left behind and wanting more from the relationship, is the young man.  He is actually not much more than a boy, but we find he hasn’t really been allowed to be a boy as he is also the caretaker of a needy and mentally ill parent.  I enjoyed his story, and developed a lump in throat and squeezing in my chest during the heavier scenes when the story turned on him.  The tale flows well and is easy to read and easy to follow.  There were only a few steamy sensual scenes, but they were nicely done.  While it was not all light and breezy, and took some dark turns, the ending brought a smile to my face.

Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in 3rd person. 

She's a self-published author who loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl.

She's an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits :-) She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral :-)
