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!

There is something about the way Ms. Bowen and Ms. Kennedy writes that I just am always so excited to dig right in and start reading. They have a way to have you fall completely in love with their characters and that is exactly what I did with Matt and Hailey while reading Stay.
I loved the whole idea with this book, an anonymous assistant service to help you out with from the basic day to day things to something special for a special occasion. Hailey was smart, she was sassy, she was funny and I really liked her character, even when some things or I should say some people try to ruin it. Matt, my heart melted for him. I felt so bad for the way his ex would treat him or make him feel. I wanted to take a hockey stick and beat her with it multiple times. His daughters though were so adorable and cute they added the perfect touch to the story. Oh and we can’t forget the dog, I would walk him any day.
Stay is the second book in the WAGS series and I absolutely loved it. Sometimes we all are craving that one person to stay and fight for you, to not walk away or leave you. I can’t wait for more of these guys that we have come to know and love. This is a must read for any fan of these authors, hockey romances or even just a romance fan. I think you will love it.
