Can you fall in love with 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’m just going to go ahead and lead with this… I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book! If the HOT dude holding a sweet puppy doesn’t say BUY ME NOW… I don’t know what else could! But if by any chance you want to go beyond drooling over the insanely hot cover, be sure to get ready for Matt Eriksson. He is amazing! And this story is amazing! And of course Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy collaborating on this book is amazing! I think you get the point by now… STAY is a must read for this summer. If you are a fan of hockey, a fan of romance, and a fan of a well written story then one-click this baby ASAP.
“He’s already one up on me. He’s been on the receiving end of a couple of Hottie’s kisses. I’ve got nothing. It’s the first time I’ve ever been jealous of my dog.” ~ Matt
Yes, Rufus, the sweet dog Matt is holding has a prominent role in Matt and Hailey’s story… LOL! Seriously though, two people couldn’t be more perfect for each other. Both recently divorced, exes who are very much in the picture, and issues with letting go in different ways, makes for a very interesting read. Matt has used Hailey’s service FETCH for a over a year and a half. They’ve traded a ton of messages and Hailey has been a life saver for Matt. When that business relationship slowly starts to build into something more, things take off!
“You haven’t stammered and stuttered in a while now that I think about.” A grin stretches his sexy mouth. “Could someone finally be warming up to me?”
Hailey aka Hottie is a die hard hockey fan and has had an insane crush on Matt forever so when her fantasy is standing in front of her asking her out… woah! I loved that Matt brought Hailey out of her dry spell and shyness. I love that Hailey gave Matt more than just an awesome delivery/concierge service because she showed him he was worth so much more than how his ex treats him. Bottom line… perfect for each other is putting it mildly. STAY is super sexy, steamy, and light-hearted. I enjoyed my time spent with not only Hailey and Matt but with Blake and Jess, and of course Wes and Jamie. They are fun bunch for sure. Fall in love with Matt and root for Hailey to get her HEA… great read!
“She has no idea how much this means to me. I’ve spent the last year and chance believing myself unfit to be anyone’s partner. And maybe it’s true. But by spending her day with me – and her night – Hailey lets me believe I’m not a lost cause, that my messy life is worth sharing.”
