Book Review: Stay a Little Longer by Jess Bryant 

Goodreads Synopsis:

Where do you go when there’s no place to hide?

Country music superstar, Trent Thorne is on the run. The secret he’s kept hidden from the world is no longer a secret at all. He trusted the wrong person, a man he’d stupidly thought he was in love with, and instead of a happily ever after all he’d gotten was outted. Unwilling to sit around and watch his private life get plastered all over the news, Trent hits the road and somehow ends up in his best friend Lemon’s small hometown of Fate, Texas.

He only intends to crash there for one night but in Fate, one night can change everything.

Lance Nichols knows a thing or two about hiding. He’s so deep in the closet he can’t even see daylight. The former womanizer finally admitted the truth to himself a few years ago but he never thought he’d be able to say the words out loud, not to his family, not to his friends, and certainly not to his secret celebrity crush when the guy stumbles awkwardly into his life.

But the words come easily with Trent. Everything comes easily with him. Talking, touching and even opening up about all the things he’s never told a soul.

Fate brought these two together, but will it also tear them apart? One newly outed man refuses to go back in the closet. The other can’t imagine coming out of his.

The real world is closing in on their little bubble but before it does, can they figure out how to coexist and be a part of each other’s lives? Can Lance stop hiding and take a chance on love? And what happens if Trent decides to stay a little longer… maybe even forever?

Chick and Brain Rating 5 out of 5 

There are no words to express how amazing this story is story is. I love Fate, Texas. I love Lemon. However most importantly to this book, I absolutely am desperately in love with Lance and Trent. This is the story of what fairy tales are made of. Jess Bryant has made all my girly love story fantasies come true. Even if you are not a fan of M/M this story speaks to everyone that has had a secret that they are desperate to keep hidden from the outside world. It only takes that one special person to help you understand that they love you flaws and all, and that everything will be okay in the end because you have each other. That is what Trent does for Lance. It is insta-love at its finest, but honestly in this story it could not have happened any other way.

The story centers around Trent, a country music star that has been hiding his sexuality his entire career. However, he trusted the wrong person and his secret was out. Trying to escape the hysteria of his secret getting out Trent runs to his best friend, Lemon, and Fate, Texas. Texans take care of their own so no one should be bothering him. Well that is until Trent mistakenly ends up in a different trailer, where he discovers that all his wishes are about to come true.
Lance is your typical womanizing asshole, or so we think. In reality Lance is hiding who he truly is in fear of disappointing those around him. He has been hiding his true self for so long that he does not even know how to begin to accept himself so that others will as well. This was the case until he came home from work and found the half-naked man of his dreams laying in his bed.

Stay A Little longer, is a fast but meaningful read for everyone. I get Lance, I am not a lesbian by any means, but I get the fear he is feeling and the struggle of wanting to be accepted by everyone. It took the love of an amazing person to get Lance to understand that come what may they will always have each other. I am a crier, so when I say by the end of this book you will in tears it is no surprise. However, even the non-criers are choked up by the end of this book. I highly recommend any who is just looking for a good old fashion smut filled love story! And although this is a stand alone, go back and read Call me, Irresistible. Lemon should be a part of everyone’s life!

*** I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review ***


Until next time,
