In the first novel, Stay, Cassidy fell in love with hockey playing hottie, Cole Mathews. With his gorgeous whiskey colored eyes, dark shaggy hair and dimples to die for, Cole is everything Cassidy never expected to find. And he just so happens to be one of the nicest guys she’s ever met. It wasn’t difficult falling in love with Cole, even though telling him about her past was.
Just when their relationship couldn’t feel more perfect, someone from Cassidy’s past unexpectedly shows up at Western shaking her to the core. Luke Wellington is the guy who saw her at her very worst last year. And he’s the one person who can completely ruin all the painstaking progress she’s made this semester.
But Cassidy isn’t the only one who has someone from the past all but crashing into their future. Cole’s ex-girlfriend, Jackie, is back in town and she’s here to stay. Once upon a time, Jackie and Cole were best friends and first loves. Jackie may have hurt Cole, but they have a lifetime of friendship and memories that are almost impossible to compete with.
Cassidy is just beginning to realize that telling Cole about her past was the easy part. Working through all the issues now standing in their way could actually be the end of them.
Don’t Leave is the second novel in the Stay Series but can be read as a standalone. If you’re interested in how Cassidy and Cole first got together, please checkout Stay.
