Five Reasons to Stay is a wonderful friends to lovers romance read! Allison is a teacher who has been in love with her best friend Wyatt for some time but after Wyatt brushes off her outburst of feelings she tries to move on and begin to date. This is when the real story begins and the steaminess hits the pages. Wyatt isn't about to let Allison get away but he has a past Allison doesn't know about and things are about to take a turn that may tear them apart.
This was a fantastic sweet read. I enjoyed the push and pull between Allison and Wyatt and the growth of their bond and need to protect Wyatt's nephew. The author did a great job developing these characters and showing the strain that family, friends, and a past place on a relationship. While allowing her characters to make mistakes and step back from each other, the author also showed the significance of communication and apologies in a relationship. I enjoyed the realness of their relationship along with the off the charts heat between them. I will definitely be going back to read the entire series and find more to read from this author!
