Similar to the first book of the series, Stay was written and revolves around the same circle within Cooper and Noah. This time it was Cooper’s colleague Braden Roth – a good hearted, happy-go-lucky, hippy, I-love-everyone kind of guy who realized that he’s bound to stay in Blackcreek when he met Wes (the guy Noah was supposed to have a one night stand with in the first book) and decided to pursue him. Braden was actually a really interesting character but perhaps too unrealistic. I would’ve liked it if there we more conflict aside from Wes’s family responsibility because it’s just all very simple. Its plot was so weak that it became almost unbearable to read but since it’s a short read, I decided to go ahead with it. There was not enough backstory especially for Wes and I thought the ending was pretty weak. Overall, it was a “just okay” read to pass time but I’m not exactly going to recommend it eagerly.
