STAY WITH ME
By: Kelly Elliott
Release Day : May 12, 2016
Life moves on.
Only people who have never lost anyone they loved with all their heart can blindly believe those words.
What if I didn’t want to move on? What if I wanted to wake up every morning with that familiar ache in my chest, knowing I’d never see her again?
But, life can change in a moment.
I knew that better than anyone … So, when I couldn’t get those mesmerizing green eyes out of my head, I decided to do something about it.
Would one night with her be enough, or would my heart decide it was finally time to move on from the past?
Thano knew how it felt to lose someone. His friends and family tell him that it’s time to move on, but he’s not ready to let go. Then he meets Kilyn and he can’t get her off of his mind. Now Thano has to decide whether he can give in to his heart’s desire and move forward or continue to live in the past.
This story is a bit of a whirlwind and I absolutely loved it! Stay With Me is heartfelt and comical. Thano and Kilyn are a perfect match. They’re both broken in their own way, battling with hardships from their past that has forced them both to put walls up around their hearts. I loved the way they were able to find solace in each other. I admired Kilyn’s strength and independence. After everything that she’s gone through she still found a way to push forward. Internal battles aside, there was also the drama that was Thano’s family. Holy cow, they were intense! I was really drawn into Thano and Kilyn’s story. I loved every second of it! Kelly really outdid herself with this one.
Pulling Kilyn onto my lap, I lifted her chin and looked into her eyes. “This is not bad. This is you and I finding our way back to each other. I don’t think it was a coincidence you and I running into each other all those times. We were meant to be together. Even if I couldn’t see it at first, I’ve always known it in my heart. All we have to do is show up, eat some food, help my father with some bookshelf and then I’m taking you home and making love to you all night.”
She lifted her eyebrows. “All night, huh?”
I gently kissed around her face. “All night.”
“Is that a Greek thing . . . the stamina?”
I could feel my body heating as Kilyn squirmed about in my lap. “Hell, yes, that’s a Greek thing.”
Sinking her teeth into her lip, she smiled big. “I think I’m going to like having a Greek boyfriend.”
“Oh, baby, trust me. There are so many things about having a Greek boyfriend you’re going to love.”
Pushing her ass against my hard dick, she winked. “Starting with this?”
A low growl came from the back of my throat as I whispered against her lips. “Me trelaíneis, Kilyn.”
