Publisher's Summary

Can you fall for someone you've never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch - an anonymous virtual assistant service - is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson. Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95 percent sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He's still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth - that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won't show her pretty face.

But it's nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can't fix. Hailey can't resist the offer. Matt can't resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn't have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera, and exploding ovaries.

Jacob Morgan is a star. All 3 stars are for him

Firstly, I love Wes and Jamie and only bothered with the spin offs for more of them. Jacob Morgan was amazing! I will however actively avoid Lucy Rivers narration from now on. She sounds bored, her masculine voice is strange and I wanted to (but did not) skip her sections. Overall good book though!

Loved it!!

Always love Kennedy and Bowen. Their stories are escapism in its purest form. Also love Jacob Morgan’s narration - he doesn’t just read the story but “acts” it. Makes a HUGE difference. Lucy Rivers is also one of the better female narrators I’ve listened too. Will be reading/listening to this book again.

Hockey fun!

A great story with zero angst and funny banter between Halley and Matt. I really liked the camaraderie between the team players and Matt’s two daughters were delightful! Having said that, for me, I didn’t think there was anything really special about this story though. Sure it was sweet and fun but it just lacked the oomph factor. I loved the narrators Jacob Morgan and Lucy Rivers for this audiobook.

Enjoyable love story.

Female narrator butchered male voice. Thank goodness for Jacob Morgans performance. Nice to revisit characters from Him and Us books.

Loved the story

I read Stay in one day. I loved it. Jacob Morgan's narration was fantastic. I was a little disappointed though that the female narrator made Matt sound like a stoned surfer dude. However overall I really enjoyed this one.

Great story however:

Great story however Lucy Rivers totally ruined it for me. I went into this story because of Jacob morgan but I have to say Lucy Rivers who did 3/4 of the narration was horrible. If they had used another GOOD female narrator this would have been a total 5 Star book. I don’t usually leave typed reviews but I just had to say something. All the reviews I read were giving her so much credit. After the second chapter I thought “you people have no idea what a good female narrator is.” Jacob morgan is the best actor I’ve ever heard on Audible and pray he doesn’t give up this job to other things. This man makes me feel every character he portrays, HE IS. So maybe listen to other samples of Lucy rivers before purchasing this book. I could hardly make it to the end. Don’t always listen to reviews. Do some homework before spending your hard earned money on a good book done bad by horrible narrators. Ok I’m done ranting. But oh!! Jacob morgan!!!!!!!

Not impressed

This was $1.99 audio added to the $4.99 ebook, which makes it less than an Audible credit. Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy individually are two of my favorite authors. Together, they are phenomenal. That said, this is my least favorite collaboration of theirs. Even being my least favorite, I’d still give it 3 stars. Jacob Morgan was great as always.. I have mixed feelings about Lucy Rivers in this book. I found myself speeding up her parts to make it somewhat enjoyable. Performance rating is 5 for Morgan and 3 for Rivers. Matt Ericksson is a hockey player (minutely mentioned in the Him/Us series and a little more in the first book of the WAGS series, Good Boy) who has been divorced for 18 months or two years or something that we’re not exactly sure because the number keeps changing. Hailey Taylor Emory is the owner of an online “personal assistant” service called “Fetch” and is also divorced. Hailey becomes Matt’s assistant and they flirt online for a bit. When an emergency job requires a personal delivery to Matt and they meet in person, sparks fly. It’s a cute story and overall enjoyable. Unfortunately, there’s some issues that really detract from the overall experience. *there isn’t a consistent timeline. Matt’s twin daughters are 4 when he gets a divorce, they’re 4 throughout the book, and they’re 4 in the epilogue. Ummm... *Hailey’s chat name is “HTE” which Matt mentally turns in to “hottie” in his mind. But even after they meet and spend time together ~ 90% of the time he continues to call her “hottie” instead of her name. It’s sort of cute occasionally, but it felt somewhat impersonal or dehumanizing or something “less than”. *Hailey’s character is inconsistent. She’s a professional who owns her own business. Yet she’s a blubbering mess around Matt for 50% of their interactions. Like beyond a few goofy interactions to “why on earth does he find that appealing?” There’s even a chapter titled “Loss of IQ” and then she proceeds to lose her IQ. I’m not sure whether 100% of this is due to how she was written or how Lucy Rivers narrated her. I do like how Matt & Hailey navigate life after divorce. There’s some angst ~ but it doesn’t feel too OTT. Matt’s interactions with his daughters is adorable. It’s definitely an HEA and the epilogue is precious. I really enjoyed Him, Us, and Good Boy ~ but I’ll probably never listen to this again. I’m a little disappointed that the book obviously set up for Will O’Connor for his own story, but two years later “Stay” remains the last book of this series.

Male narrator is Awsome

5 stars to Jacob Morgan. Sorry to give zero stars to Lucy Rivers. I tried hard but could not listen to her. I skipped all her chapters.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

Another good book by this dynamic duo! I have to save I love the idea of Hailey's business and it made for a fun story line too! Matt & Hailey's story was sweet and playful and very sexy. I have a serious love for single dad's in books so I knew I'd love Matt from the beginning. I love that he is trying to be the best dad he can even if his ex doesn't always make it easy. This book left me feeling happy :)

The narration was 100X better than book 1 for me. They were perfect!

Thumbs down for female narrator.

The story is good, the male narrator is great. The female narrator does not work at all. Not only is her male voice absolutely terrible, but she reads very stiff and stilted. It takes you right out of the story. Super disappointing.

So Disappointed

Story 4.5-stars ***** Jacob Morgan as Matt 5-stars ***** Lucy Rivers as Hailey 1-star * I really, really like this story. I'd 1-click any future books in this series. And I LOVE Jacob Morgan's narration. But I almost dnf 3-4 times because of Lucy Rivers as Hailey. My goodness she's awful. I skimmed through and/or read the most of the chapters she narrated. I will read anything Sarina and Elle write. I will listen to anything Jacob Morgan narrates. In the future, however, I'll avoid anything with Ms. Rivers.

Why I gave the performance 3 stars

First off, I have enjoyed reading WAGs series so far. This is another audiobook that I have listened to that Jacob Morgan narrated. Jacob Morgan is a phenomenal narrator and I have enjoyed every one of his performances. However, Lucy Rivers was bad. Her male voice was a joke. It was like if I narrated the book and put on the VERY fake male voice. If you are to be a narrator, your male voice should not be comical and actually very close to a decent one.

I will admit that the female narrators the publisher has chosen for the first 2 WAGs books have overall disappointed me. Their male voices have carried the performance completely. Thankfully, I also own the books so when I get frustrated with the female voice, I'll switch to reading so I can move back to listening to the male POV

5 stars for Jacob 1 For Lucy 3 stars for over all story

Ok because Jacobs name is first on the “narrated by” line I gave this book a 5 star hoping it doesn’t count against him personally. I listened to this book because he was the narrator. Lucy needs a lot of work on her performance. She always makes the males sound awful. And I’m not talking about her vocal range which I understand she will never sound masculine, I mean she makes them sound slow and dumb/dorky. I don’t know why they pair her with amazing male narrators I always cringe. Jacob could and probably should have narrated this entire book by himself. It just got to the point I had to skip a few of her chapters. Which makes me sad because the book was actually very heartwarming 💗.

WAGs for the win!

the second book in this series was not as good as the last but I still really liked it. I am not sure that I liked the female narrator as much though.
