Book Description

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.



Excerpt from Stay With Me

I give him a look. “You’re not really expecting me to introduce myself, are you?”
“Why not?”
“Because . . . because . . .” I look up at the sky; no answers are there among the few stars that have now broken free of the clouds. “Because it seems silly. We already know each other’s names.”
“Let’s pretend we don’t. Here. I’ll start.” He holds out his right hand to me. “Hi, I’m Caleb Fox.”
I stare at his hand. “This is—”
“I’m sorry. I don’t talk to strangers.”
“Funny.” But then I decide to play along—I tell myself that it’s not to feel Caleb’s hand around mine once again. “Hi, Caleb. I’m Hailey Bloom.”
I like saying his name.
“Hi, Hailey.”
I like it even more when he says mine.
His hand grasps mine in a firm, no-nonsense grip. It should be an ordinary handshake. Something brief, impersonal, and easily forgotten.
This handshake is anything but ordinary, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.
His slightly rough skin is still cool against mine, and his thumb sweeps the inside of my wrist. I gasp out loud, and his fingers briefly tighten. The handshake should be over by now.
He doesn’t let go. Neither do I.
“Now we’ve met,” he finally says.
“Yes.” My mouth feels dry, and I lick my lips. “We have.”
His gaze drops to my mouth. I want to fall into him, to let my body press against his, and feel his arms around me. To have his lips touch mine.
Who cares about anything else but thatright now?
Nothing else matters. Nothing at all.
It would take just one step. One tiny step would bring me closer to him. I’d be within kissing distance.

 "You know who I am." He Shakes his head slowly. "I don't think I do." "Huh?" "I know of you, but I don't know you."

This book captivated me from the start, and i just couldn't put it down until i finished it ! 

All Hailey wants is to be 'normal' and to experience college life after being forced into fame by her mother all through childhood. Caleb is a 'normal' guy who doesn't care for Hailey as 'The Hailey Bloom', he cares about the person underneath all that.

Hailey fights inner demons that have sprouted from things she had to do stay famous. She has secrets that she doesn't want anyone to know, and a mother that cares more about 'FAME' then her daughter.
But who long does she have until all her secrets come out? 
Who will be the one to hurt Hailey the most by revealing her darkest secret?
Will Caleb still care for her after he know's the truth?

"You said it was true." He looks at me, his expression askimg me to explain . . . to trust him. I did. "It is""So talk to me. Tell me. Stop hiding things from me. Trust me."
Can Hailey trust again after she has been hurt by the one person meant to protect her?

This is the first book in the Stay With Me series, and i can gladly say I will be eagerly waiting for With Me #1.5 'Christmas With me' which is Jamie's story, due for release in December 2013.
