Publisher's Summary

Serena Howard and Blake Russell are two driven individuals with tunnel vision when it comes to their goals. The two meet in Philadelphia, and there's instant chemistry between them. They date, have fun, and eventually fall for one another.

Will the desire to achieve their goals interfere with their feelings for one another? Will they sever ties, or will their connection be too strong to break?

I Love This Story

This Is Such A Gooooood story....I can't wait for book 2.....I Love this author's writing style and that's exactly what helped me get through this story....the comradery of the friends (Serena & Kira and Blake & Neef) is reminiscent of real life friendships. Both Blake & Serena have feelings for one another and they didn't mean to feel for each other the way they do because it was also known that Blake had career plans that didn't include him continuing to live in Philly. Watching this relationship blossom and the dynamic amongst the friends is truly entertaining....this story is definitely a five ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ star to me if it not for the narration. Shari Peele is definitely a hit or miss for me with narration and this time she missed...all of the smacking and swallowing she did during her narration really got on my damn nerves. In addition, to her telling this story so flatly....she didn't inflect or put inference on any of the words to tell the story. Because of this author's writing style, I was able to see (listen) pass that damn noise and the lack of acting to really understand and enjoy the story. I have my Holy Trinity of Narrators and Unfortunately, they can't narrate every book/author I love...But, I am invested in this story and eagerly await book 2.....I'm hoping for Neef & Kira's audiobook (Minus Shari Peele).

Well This Was A Good Time!!!

I really enjoyed Stay A Little Longer. It was sexy with just the right amount of drama. Serena and Blake were two people who weren't looking for love but love found them and, unfortunately, not at the right time. When Blake meets Serena, he's already applied for a position within his company at a different location. Once he and Serena start getting hot and heavy, he gets the job and is planning to move to San Francisco. Serena, of course, is heartbroken because she did exactly what she said she wouldn't do. She fell in love with a man who's virtually unavailable. Serena was willing to try to make things work through long distance but, Blake nipped that in the bud. He did not want a long distance relationship. The way he handled things towards the end was really crappy. Wining and dining her for her birthday weekend did nothing but give Serena false hope. So, I completely understand why she was so upset and cut off all communication with Blake. I have to say, I did not see that ending coming but I should have. Chiiiiiile, talk about a cliffhanger! It’s been years since I’ve listened to a book narrated by Shari Peele and I see nothing has change. Her performance was horrible. It was flat, dry, and monotonous, you couldn’t distinguish the female characters from the male characters, and she brought absolutely no life into any of the characters. The sex scenes were unbelievably cringy. They came off as very juvenile when she read them. And, we won’t even talk about that incessant swallowing she did throughout the entire book. It was so gross to listen to. The constant swallowing actually made my skin crawl. Shari Peele has over 20 years in the game as a narrator so, you mean to tell she hasn’t figured out how to control that?!!! She has been added to the list of narrators I will NOT listen to. Matter of fact, I’m not even listen to book two. I’ll just read it. Aside from the bad narrator, Stay A Little Longer was an excellent read. The storyline and character development were spot on. I can't wait to see what's in store for Serena and Blake in book two.

Great

I really like this book and would recommend this book. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I wish this book was a TV show or movie. This couple was amazing together and I can't wait for more. I wish it had included her finding out about the baby and the months up to birth. I hope her friend and his have a book. Can't wait for the next book in this series.

I Guess I'm Too Old

I really want to listen to book 2, but the use of the N word throughout this book has totally gotten me off of this author. Can I have my credit back?
