Stay: A Dark Romance by Chelsea Camaron
Release Date: September 7, 2015



Fair Warning … This isn’t a sappy romance. It’s not sweet. It’s far from anything you would want to imagine. This is a story to leave you feeling dirty. Nothing about us is normal. Nothing about us is natural. Can love ultimately be defined in such ways, truly? This is our story. He is a hitman. The very one who took my family the night that changed us both forever. Something in my eyes stopped him from killing me. Something in my eyes called out for him to take me. At ten he captured me, at fifteen he consumed me, and at eighteen he owned me. Outsiders think he’s my father … that is so far from the truth. Our twisted desires fuel the darkness that lies deep inside us both. My innocence never existed. He takes me as I am.    


I've mulled over this book and what else to write about it for a couple of days now. I don't like spoilers and can't think of what else to write that won't give anything away, so I'll stick with what I wrote after reading it...

Um. I’m stumped as to what to say about Stay. I’m still mopping up tears and contaminating tissues with my snot. Without giving anything away, what can I tell you?
We get the basics of the story from the blurb, ten-year-old Fallyn is taken from her home by the hitman who killed her family, and grows up with him. In public, he acts as her father as she plays his (lost in reality) daughter. She only feels calm in his presence; her nightmares can only be calmed by him. She slowly develops feelings for him as she matures and grows. But of course it’s far more complex than that.
Despite our hero being unconventional, he really is a hero. For me, he’s more of a hero for saving a little girl from the life she was being subjected to before he walked into it.
Chelsea gives two endings, too—after years of living as Angelina, the reader gets to choose the path the main character takes in the end. Does she live her life as Angelina? Or as Fallyn? It’s up to you.
I’d recommend reading Stay, but don’t go in with any preconceived notions of what it will go on. Keep an open mind. And the tissues handy.
