Savannah has loved Peter since they met in college. There is one problem, however. She kept her feelings to herself and he is now married to her childhood best friend Janie. Scared, alone and drunk she buys Joe online and never looks back. Along with Joe to keep her sane she meets Alex who makes her think maybe she really has no idea what love really is.
Alex Brandt is the local veterinarian who finds Van and Joe fascinating and seeks to become friends, possibly more. Weary of love since his divorce he has avoided any serious entanglements but has no defense against Van and Joe.
Savannah is on a path of self discovery but the past keeps rearing its ugly head. Will the secrets and lies Savannah is hiding be the one thing Alex is unable to forgive or will he open up and give love a chance?
I absolutely loved this book. Joe is such a character and for him alone Stay would be a beautiful and entertaining read. Throw in a cast of characters who are so heart-breakingly human and a world that is so realistic, and you have a moving story of what happens when life leaves you no other option but to grow up. I laughed, cried, cheered and mourned with each of the characters, and for all of their foibles I loved them all. Joe is one companion that is the icing on a cake that I recommend you take a bite out of.
