Life moves on.

Only people who have never lost anyone they loved with all their heart can blindly believe those words.

What if I didn’t want to move on? What if I wanted to wake up every morning with that familiar ache in my chest, knowing I’d never see her again?

But, life can change in a moment.

I knew that better than anyone … So, when I couldn’t get those mesmerizing green eyes out of my head, I decided to do something about it.

Would one night with her be enough, or would my heart decide it was finally time to move on from the past?


If there is one thing I can count on in life it’s that Kelly Elliott’s novels enchant, swoon and make the world a better place. I was bewitched into a spellbinding and sensually romantic love story that was exquisitely written to perfection with characters that stole my heart. Stay with Me is the latest standalone novel by Kelly Elliott and follows Thano and Kilyn’s story through a blind fate that throws them together at every possible chance and the sizzling connection that can’t be denied.

There was vulnerability in the tale of love as both Thano and Kilyn’s past haunts the shadows they walk daily and it intertwines with the story perfectly as the profound connection and the powerful chemistry seemed so right and so perfect that it was without a doubt the past that haunts and holds the greatest challenge.

While exploring the concepts of fate and signs of meant to be the chemistry was undeniably heartfelt and Thano’s use in the small moments of Greek language made me drool  more than once whilst reading. The story captivated me from the beginning and Kelly Elliott yet again wrote a story that stole my heart.

The characters were everything to the story. Thano, I wish could just knock on my door one day and sweep me of my feet. They were brilliantly written to have flaws that made them human, and hearts that when together break down the walls of their painful pasts. I absolutely loved that the Greek family background was incorporated into the storyline as someone who has a Greek cultured background I was laughing so much at some of the narratives I had to stop reading because I was almost crying with laughter.

Thano and Kilyn’s story was vividly perfect in every sense of a romance novel, their story impacted me and every word and moment shared be it the blind fate that threw them together or the meaningful moments where the walls crumbled down. The character depth was worthy of more than words can describe and no words can describe how powerful Kelly Elliott’s writing is.

Stay with Me opened wounds of innocence lost and the pain of the past and how when two hearts separately broken intertwine together can be breathtakingly beautiful and a story that will make you laugh, swoon and shed a tear or two. Thano and Kilyn’s story consumed my every thought as I devoured reading Stay with Me in one sitting—true to my style with every book I read by Kelly Elliott.
