What would have made Stay with Me better?
This is perhaps one of the worst cliché romantic stories I've ever listened to and have finally given up. The 1 dimensional characters, the overused plot pre-fab (the failed-romantic lead who despite being an idiot of epic proportions captivates the attention of the object of his affections) and the anticipated set-ups finally got to me. Not worth listening to!

I love sarcasm and the principle character, private investigator, Mackenzie Williams is one smarta** who could be my friend. There is a lot going on in this story and you have to pay attention to the narrative of the past to understand Mac in the present time. I found Mac's love interest, Jordan, to be very interesting if not a bit unrealistic...but it works for this story. Harmon did a great job telling this story with humor, wit, and the fear of love. The narrator, Michael Stellman, did a good job with the vocal inflictions for the most part. The only reason for a four rating is during the telling of this story, it dragged a bit--particularly in the middle and I am not sure if it was the story or the narrator. Either way, it is a good story that I would recommend...

This book reminded me a lot of Dani Alexander's Shattered Glass (which is also available on Audible and I highly recommend it) without the cool crime adventure. The main character, Mack, is a wise cracking PI with abandonment issues. He has not been lucky in the love dept. He falls for the "straight" client and thus embarks on a GFY story; with an a**hole ex thrown in for good measure. The writing a narrator were engaging enough to hold my attention. Since not much else is going on in the story, it could have been really boring. But I am a fan of sarcastic characters, so I enjoyed it. The narrator, did a good job conveying the emotion of the story, but lost a star because all the characters kind of sounded the same. I like diversity in the voices and didn't find it in this narration. Still worth a listen.
