Stay (Blackcreek #2)-Riley Hart

Wes Jensen just lost the sister who raised him, and gained custody of his niece. The last thing he needs to add to his full plate is dealing with Braden Roth, the one-night-stand who continues to try to push his way into Wes’s life. He has a kid to raise now, and Wes isn’t great at getting close anyway.

Braden has never had a woman or a man sneak out on him the morning after. From the start, Wes intrigues him, and Braden isn’t one to deny himself something he wants. And he wants Wes. The more time he spends with Wes and the little girl who constantly keeps them on their toes, the more Braden realizes this isn’t just about getting the guy who walked away.

As their lives intertwine more and more, Wes discovers Braden isn’t as shallow as he thought. But after everything Wes lost in his life, he isn’t sure he can risk his heart, and truly want Braden to stay—and if he did, would Wes’s quiet life be enough for Braden?

This is the second book in this series but the first that I have read and I must say it can be read as a stand alone, but I’m going to read book one very soon as I loved this story so much.

I loved this book so much and found myself so deeply immersed in the story it was 3.30am when I finished and I didn’t even realise!

Wes and Braden are great Main characters and Jessie is absolutely adorable, I think at times she is the glue that helps keep Wes and Braden together when times are tough. Wes is is lonely and sad he seems to have lost who he is, Braden is anything but he’s full of life, boisterous, flirty and let’s his mouth say exactly what he is thinking before engaging his brain.
They are so very different in personality but they fit so perfectly.
I liked the fact that this relationship was given time to develop from friends with benefits to something more, yes it started with a one night stand but it ended up being so very much more.
Braden’s family are fantastic and I loved the whole family Christmas.

This was a super sweet, feel good story. Very low on the angst and drama but had plenty of steam, Wes and Braden are a hot couple. I love books where I don’t have to think. Where I just get lost in the words the flow of the plot and lose track of everything else, and this book ticks all the boxes for that.

Don’t get me wrong I love a good emotional heart wrenching angsty story, but this is one of those books that can be read after one of the gut wrenching kind so your heart can heal and you can smile for a little while.
