Title: Stay With Me
Author Name: S. E. Harmon
Publication Date & Length: April 28, 2014 — 290 pages


Private investigator Mackenzie Williams’s newest client is everything he’s looking for in a guy—charming, beautiful, intelligent, and successful. There’s only one itty bitty problem—the guy’s not exactly gay. In fact, Jordan Channing is looking for a PI to follow his fiancée. The smart thing would be to thank Jordan for his time, turn Mr. Perfect away (don’t let the door hit you on the rump, thank you very much), and forget he exists.

Of course, Mackenzie has never been accused of doing the smart thing. Being smart aleck is more his MO. Relationships aren’t up his alley, never have been. So why’s he so inexplicably drawn to his new client?

Jordan has always been the high achiever, a man who lives in a focused, controlled, and carefully constructed manner. But for the first time in his life, he has to admit the impossible—another man is getting his engine running on all cylinders. Despite Jordan’s denial, it’s not long before he can no longer resist the strong undercurrents pulling them together. Now Jordan must decide if he can go against everything he’s ever known to have the only love he’s ever wanted.

ThreeStar I am not really sure how to even write my feelings on this book. There were a few things I liked about the book but a few that I didn’t and I am sure I am in the minority in my feelings for this book. The plot was great, I liked it. The characters were well written and somewhat believable. At times the book was way too wordy, I found myself skimming because it was just a lot of monologue and I was bored out of my mind. Then there is Mackenzie, he drove me nuts, I understand sarcasm and I love it, but it was non flipping stop and sometimes it was just too much and I found him to be annoying. Jordan was loveable from the beginning but he did a total flip from not being gay to be being all into it. Of course he wouldn’t admit it but he was all into it. I mean the first time Mac and Jordan had sex Jordan rimmed Mac, for real? You went from banging chicks to now rimming a guy within a few weeks, that just seemed a little too over the top for me. Then Mac is always complaining about his ex-Trevor and his dog Fin. When he finally gets the dog we don’t really even hear about the dog anymore. Ugh, I just don’t know, this book had some hot sex in it, and a good story line but the sarcasm and wordiness just did me in.
