Can you fall for someone you've never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch--an anonymous virtual assistant service--is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He's still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth--that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won't show her pretty face.
But it's nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can't fix. Hailey can't resist the offer. Matt can't resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn't have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.
I really had fun with this book and I’m seriously enjoying the WAGs Series. If you are new to the series, know that Stay can absolutely be read as a standalone. I believe I said this in my last review for Good Boy but I really enjoy the collaboration between Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. We get the hockey romance story that we love from both of them and then we get their infused humor, which is quite fun.
There are so many elements that I enjoyed so I’ll just tick them off. First off all, I love Hailey’s business, Fetch. The idea is fun and we get some pretty hilarious situations that Hailey and her team are put in with some pretty outlandish requests. I enjoyed the time that was taken to play out the business part of it and the stories that came along with it. Plus, Jenny is hilarious and I want more of her.
Secondly, I like that Matt comes off as sweet but he’s got a bit of alpha in him. He’s an amazing Dad and loved when he was with his girls. Basically, I just really like Matt. Haha. Doesn’t everyone. He seems to take the world on his shoulders and is just an all out great guy.
Hailey is the perfect match for Matt. I adore her love for Hockey and can relate to her only with college basketball and MLB. I’m the rowdy girl in the stands yelling at anyone and anyone, just like Hailey. She also has a bit of vulnerability to her that just makes her that much more relatable. She’s patient and understanding. I just like the two of them together.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I thought it was fun, flirty and swoon worthy. If you haven’t read this series or any collaboration by these two authors, you need to fix that. ASAP!
