My Review of Stay With Me by Elyssa Patrick

Book Blurb:
New Adult/Contemporary Romance - recommended for ages 17 and up.
With one look, I’m his . . .
With one touch, he’s mine . . .
With one kiss, it changes everything between us . . .
I’ve been famous since I can remember. Singing, acting, dancing—I’ve done it all. The tabloids cover my every move, but I don’t want that anymore. I want to be normal, whatever that is.
When I leave Hollywood for college in Vermont, I’m on my own for the first time in my life. This is my chance to figure out who I am and what I want in life.
But it’s a lot harder than I expected. I can’t escape my image. Classes are difficult, and I’m struggling. And then there’s Caleb Fox.
Sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox.
Caleb is the one man who doesn’t want to use me. He breaks down my walls. He challenges me. He wants me. And I just don’t know if I can give him the same—or if he’ll stick around when he finds out my shameful secret that the tabloids haven’t managed to uncover.
Dating him is risky enough, but loving him could break me.
My Review:
5 stars
The first thing that I loved about stay with me is the fact that it was based in Vermont. Being a Vermont native it makes you feel special to know exactly where they are talking about. 
I also really loved the story line. You don't usually hear of famous people trying to better themselves by furthering their education. Sure some have, but not as many as you would think. 
When we first meet the main character Hailey she is alone. After leaving life in Hollywood to attend college in Vermont, she has nobody. All of her friends are back home and her mother is someone she wouldn't care to see again. 
Then she meets Caleb. As much as she tires to deny her feelings for him it doesn't work. He is the first person to see past her fame, past the rumors, and the first person that could really rip her in two. 
An insightful story on finding ones self, and learning to let others in. Hailey would be a fantastic role model for young girls. Showing that its ok to make mistakes, but its what you take from those mistakes that's important.
