Blog Tour GP & Review: If You Stay by Courtney Cole

Title: If I Stay
By: Courtney Cole
My Copy: Ebook for Tour
BookWhisperer Rating:
four books


24-year old Pax Tate is an asshole.
Seriously.
He’s a tattooed, rock-hard bad-boy with a bad attitude to match.
But he’s got his reasons.
His mother died when Pax was seven, leaving a hole in his heart filled with guilt although he doesn’t understand why. What he does know is that he and his dad are left alone and with more issues than they can count.
As Pax grew up, he tried to be the kid his father always wanted; the perfect golden boy, but it didn’t work. His dad couldn’t overcome his grief long enough to notice and Pax couldn’t keep up the impossible perfect fa├žade.
So he slipped far, far from it.
Now, he uses drugs and women to cope with the ugliness, the black void that he doesn’t want to deal with. If he pretends that the emptiness isn’t there, then it isn’t, right?
Wrong.
And it’s never more apparent than when he meets Mila.
Sweet, beautiful Mila Hill is the fresh air to his hardened frown, the beauty to his ugly heart. He doesn’t know how to not hurt her, but he quickly realizes that he’s got to figure it out because he needs her to breathe.
When memories of his mother’s death resurface from where he’s repressed them for so long, Mila is there to catch him when the guilt starts making sense. Mila is the one…the one who can save him from his broken troubled heart; from his issues, from the emptiness.
But only if he can stop being an asshole long enough to allow it.
He knows that. And he’s working on it.
But is that enough to make her stay?

our thoughts finl Deeply emotional storyline! Courtney Cole has made quite a name for herself over this past year with one amazing book after another. If You Stay was a new tempo for this author, and it was splendidly written. I was captivated with the action from the start. Cole is a pro at given readers an adrenaline rush immediately that will suck you in for the rest of the book. Mila and Pax's are the prime example of opposites that attract. Nothing like one another, but overwhelmed with desire and interest. The chemistry that flows from their characters kept me guessing. It was a thrilling ride to see this story of love and devotion that brings a man back from the depth of despair. I must admit that this story was not the regular pace that I have experience in most of my Cole reads, but none the less it was still entertaining. The overall story is not very long, and the it will flow quickly. I look forward to seeing even more from this wonderfully talented author, because it is obvious that she is going to be a name that stays.

Top Five Fave Book Couples and Why........
Oh, my. This is hard. Okay...I'll try. I've loved so many characters throughout the years that it's hard to name only five. 

The couple is such a vital part of any book- as a unit, it will make or break any story. So, in order to love the couple, you've got to love both parts. For instance, Edward and Bella aren't on my list because I'm not the biggest Bella fan. Which is weird because I really do like the Twilight books. 

*eats chocolate and takes sip of wine as I think*

Okay. I'm ready....

1. My favorite romance novel is Saving Grace by Julie Garwood, so I would have to name Johanna and Gabriel McBain. I love wittiness in books and Julie Garwood is a master. 
2. Rose and Dimitri from The Vampire Academies. I love, love Dimitri. He's so sexy. I love alpha males who are trained in deadly hand-to-hand combat. *swoons*
3. Jasper and Alice from Twilight. Just because.... how can you not? Alice is adorable and Jasper's got that whole southern gentleman vampire thing going on. Oh, and they're both deadly. Bonus! 
4. Jules and Nate from Fight with Me by Kristen Proby. Because Nate is hot. And he's pierced. Yeah...there. 
5. Camryn and Andrew from Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski. Andrew is so... hot, in a mature beyond his years and tattooed kind of way. 

So, there you have it. My top five fave fictional couples. Wow, that was hard. *takes another drink of wine to recover*
