Review of Stay by Deb Caletti

Clara’s relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it’s almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is - and what he’s willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city - and Christian - behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won’t let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough....

Admittedly I've always thought that Dev Caletti's books wouldn't be my thing but I'm pleasantly surprised - I adored this book and I can't wait to buy a copy (received this Galley free through the Simon and Schuster Galley Grab program). Deb Calletti has weaved a story that is emotional, thought provoking and difficult to put down. 

I can relate to this book too - I had relationship a while ago and the guy started being like Christian. If I mentioned any guy he'd immediately start acting weird and asked me not to mention any guys. After a couple more days I ditched him. I believe in relationships where I can still notice other guys without feeling guilty, thank you! Christian is a fascinating character though. I want to stick him a cage and prod him with a stick.
In parts Clara's character did annoy me, she is quite shallow and leads Christian on in the first place and then does tons of other really stupid stuff that I just want to slap her for. Thankfully Cleo's Pet seagull distracted me.
4/5
