Book Review: Stay by Alyssa Rose Ivy




Stay (The Empire Chronicles #3) by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Genre: New Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Expected Publication: October 20, 2014
Publisher: Self

Nothing could possibly get worse. Everything and everyone that could be in jeopardy already is, and Jared knows that he is The Society's only hope. If he doesn't find a way to escape he fails everyone including Vera, the bear shifter he can't seem to get out of his head.

Casey and Toby are in love. Head over heels in love, but is their love strong enough to survive a magic so powerful that Casey's mind is no longer in her control?

Vera will do anything to help her sister, and unfortunately that means she is well acquainted with Jared, the most frustrating man she has ever met. Now she has to find a way to fight her annoyance and growing attraction long enough to help save Levi and Allie.

Racing against the clock, all four must face their greatest fears to save The Society and all the people they love.


Stay is the third book in the Empire Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy. I love Casey an Toby, and I love that Toby is finally getting the girl. Or is he? Either way, Toby went from a character that I really disliked in the Crescent chronicles to an all around decent dude. Then we have Jared, who finds himself in some awkward if bot dangerous situations in this book. Is it time to let a girl save the day? You know I've loved Jared from the start, and I think he's finally met his match... in more ways than one. I can't wait for more of his story!

The ARC of Stay by Alyssa Rose Ivy was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.



  “Then just kiss me already. Get it over with.” “Kiss you? Are you kidding?” “No.” “I already told you I’m not sleeping with you.” “Then just shut up.” She yanked on my shirt pulling me toward her. Her lips were on mine before I could process it. My lips responded immediately, greedily sucking on her bottom lip before pushing my way into her mouth. She moaned, eagerly letting me in. My tongue tangled with hers, as I explored every corner of her mouth. Before my hands could do their own exploration she broke the kiss. “So much better.” She hopped down from the bar. “Excuse me?” I was still spinning from the kiss. Had she really stopped that suddenly? “Ok, let’s talk about the plan.”  “Now?” I asked with disbelief. “After that?” “You could say thank you.” “Thank you?” “For easing the tension. It was thick enough to cut with a knife, but I preferred your tongue.” “So that’s it? You just did that to ease sexual tension?” “What did you think I was doing?” “Giving in to your desires.” My eyes devoured her. Her tank top had pulled up when we were kissing, exposing even more smooth skin I wanted to touch. “You mean our desires. There’s nothing one sided here.” I glanced down at the bulge still obvious in my pants.“You’ve got that right.” “You’re not a bad kisser.” “Not bad?” I raised an eyebrow. “I’d say you’re a seven.” “A seven? I’m a ten. I’m a ten at everything involving sex.” I had no confidence issues in that department. No matter how pissed girls got at me, they never complained about the sex. “But that wasn’t sex. Your dick wasn’t involved. I’m sure you rely on it to earn you points.” “I don’t just rely on my dick.” “Oh yeah? Well your tongue seems a little bit out of practice. Not using it much?” “I use it plenty.” “Oh. My mistake.” She licked her lips. “Anyway back to that plan.”
