Title: Stay: A Dark Romance
Author: Chelsea Camaron
Release Date: September 7, 2015
Fair Warning … This isn’t a sappy romance. It’s not sweet. It’s far from anything you would want to imagine. This is a story to leave you feeling dirty.
Nothing about us is normal.
Nothing about us is natural.
Can love ultimately be defined in such ways, truly? This is our story.
He is a hitman. The very one who took my family the night that changed us both forever. Something in my eyes stopped him from killing me. Something in my eyes called out for him to take me.
At ten he captured me, at fifteen he consumed me, and at eighteen he owned me.
Outsiders think he’s my father … that is so far from the truth.
Our twisted desires fuel the darkness that lies deep inside us both. My innocence never existed. He takes me as I am.

Good story with a shocking ending, but definitely not as dark as I was expecting. Because of the warnings put on this story, I had my big girl panties on and was ready for some sick shit. It’s not that bad, though. I didn’t “feel dirty” from reading this story, but I did feel sad for Fallyn. I mean there are a few uncomfortable scenes but I definitely have read much worse.
“Was one hell any better than the next?”
This story is just as it is explained in the synopsis. Fallyn is taken from her home at the age of 10 and lives the rest of her childhood with “the stranger.” But, “the stranger,” AKA Giano, is not your average kidnapper. He is much kinder than the family he saved her from. But, with this safety comes many secrets and lies.
“My life shouldn’t have begun the way it did, so I shouldn’t have been in a situation where I felt safer with a stranger than I ever had with my flesh and blood.”
As I was reading this story of Fallyn’s, I kept wondering how I would have felt and dealt with the circumstances she was in, and I am still not sure. I’m pretty sure Fallyn has some serious daddy issues!! LOL! Which takes me to the relationship between Fallyn and Giano…I wasn’t totally sold on their feelings. And the reason for that is that this is a quick read and covers a large timeframe. While I loved the storyline itself, I didn’t get enough time to connect with the characters in the scenes. I think I just needed a tad bit more at times.
But, overall I truly did enjoy this story. The author’s writing is great and it was a hard story to put down. Because of that, thank goodness it was a quick read 🙂 Yes, it has a few disturbing moments but overall I think people should not be scared to give it a try. Also, you have a choice of two epilogues. I’m not sure how I felt about having two. I read because I want someone to tell me a story, so I think I would have preferred she just pick one. But for some, they may like it and be able to choose a favorite epilogue 😉
