The little brother is perfect - we are constantly told he is a good worker, and he even learns how to grill perfectly on the first go! There is some tension with Eli's parents, but nothing dramatic happens. The only tension in this book was mine, when Jessa's brother, who also happens to be Eli's lawyer, blithely tells her what Eli has hired him for. Hello! Ever heard of confidentiality? However, this is not treated as a problem by the book, which, I admit, kinda ruined the rest of it for me.

    This was actually quite sweet. I liked Eli and how he stepped up to look after his younger brother. Eli and Jessa were a good match and their chemistry (sexual, anyway) was very evident. The 'drama' of the book was dealt with quickly which was excellent. Plus this book makes me want to visit Alaska - even if I don't like fishing. Although I can't help but mention that some of the terms used during sex scenes made me laugh. Every time Jessa took her bra off her breasts "tumbled loose". I had visi This was actually quite sweet.

    This series may be a little repetitive, but I am committed and have really been enjoying it! Stay With Me was the fifth book in J.H. Croix’s Last Frontier Lodge Series. It was super sweet and sexy! Jessa came to Alaska to figure out where her life was going. Her world had gone up in flames and she was struggling to find her place. Would the wilderness help clear her mind or would crashing into Eli just confuse her more? Life had not always been kind to Eli. Alaska had been his salvation for years.

He had built his business from the ground up and it was thriving. Even though he had enough on his plate when Jessa crashed into him, could he find a spot for her too? I loved the extra elements in this book (I don’t want to give anything away!) Eli just made my heart melt!! They fell fast, which sometimes bothers me, but it worked for them! I love that I got to see glimpses of other characters! Can’t wait to see what is in store next!

    I. Love. JH Croix's writing!! I love the settings for this series I love the people she describes in this series. This story is about Jessa and Eli. Jessa lost everything when the fire destroyed her apartment building. Jessa lost her belonging, as well as her livelihood in Seattle. She painted furniture in her apartment and sold them. She has lost everything! She decides to go to family to Last Frontier Lodge where her brother Gage has reopened the ski lodge that was owned by her grandparents. Sh I. Love. JH Croix's writing!! I love the settings for this series I love the people she describes in this series. This story is about Jessa and Eli. Jessa lost everything when the fire destroyed her apartment building. Jessa lost her belonging, as well as her livelihood in Seattle. She painted furniture in her apartment and sold them. She has lost everything! She decides to go to family to Last Frontier Lodge where her brother Gage has reopened the ski lodge that was owned by her grandparents. She needs to take some time to regroup. When she arrives in Diamond Creek, she runs into Eli for the first time. Eli left home left home and moved to Diamond Creek, Alaska ten years ago as soon as he turned eighteen. He was tired of the abuse he was receiving from his lowlife father. He has made a good life for himself in Diamond Creek. He owns and runs a successful outdoor sporting goods business with fishing and hunting chartering service. Eli also left home because he was afraid of becoming like his father, this is the same reason why he is still single. He avoids relationships like the plague. Is that is about to change? Eli first meets Jessa when she quite literally runs into Eli, or rather Eli’s truck when she is backing “Blue” her truck, out of her parking spot. Eli gets out of his truck and leans against it waiting for the driver to get out. Let’s just say Eli’s demeanor totally changes the first time he sees Jessa, and the sparks begin to light. That night the motion sensor at his store keeps going off. Eli goes down to the store and sees someone in a tent behind the store. Imagine his surprise when his younger brother Ryan gets out of the tent. Ryan has run away from home for the same reason Eli did. I am not giving anymore away. I will say Ms. Croix as lived up to her past reputation and has written another phenomenally emotional book. She has a dedication at the beginning of this book: "To new beginning's and the one who helps me find them time and again." This is a perfect description of this book. Thank you for reading my review

    This is another great book in the Last Frontier Lodge series. This time, it’s Jessa, the youngest of the Hamilton clan. She has just suffered a major blow in her personal and professional life with an apartment fire that burned everything she owned. Now, in hopes to find her footing again, she’s traveling to Alaska, to visit two of her brothers, with what little was salvageable loading into her truck.

This time, it’s Jessa, the youngest of the Hamilton clan. She has just suffered a major blow in her personal and professional life with an apartment fire that burned everything she owned. Now, in hopes to find her footing again, she’s traveling to Alaska, to visit two of her brothers, with what little was salvageable loading into her truck. Eli Brooks is a sportsman in Diamond Creek, a transplant from Juneau, and a life he’d rather forget. His father was abusive and his mother was so broken from it she couldn’t stand up for herself. Eli knew if he didn’t leave, he would end up like his old man and he could stand that. So he made a deal, he’d pay for his father’s apartment, in a different place from his mother and younger brother, and he would leave the toxic wasteland of his family. The scars being that he could never trust himself to not become his father. These two have enough attraction and self-doubt to keep anyone wondering. As one finds their way to the other, only to find them freezing up with inability to grasp what they could have. It’s a push pull that finally ends when they realize that their biggest fear is to live without the other. I’ve enjoyed this series immensely, I’m only sad now that I have to wait for book 6. I didn’t realize that book 5 had just been published as I started reading the series. I know the books say stand-alone but I would recommend reading book 1 before the rest. Then I think they can stand on their own but book 1 is just so much of the background that plays into the rest of the series

    A solid 4.5 stars This is another book in the Last Frontier Lodge series. While the characters were great, just felt a little lacking for me, that's why the 4.5 stars.

Eli has been around Diamond Creek for years after leaving an abusive family. The pair meet in a parking lot after Jessa backs into Eli's truck. The chemistry between the two is off the charts. You get to see all the old favorites, especially Garrett and Marley. Jessa and Eli both don't know how to navigate their feelings for one other, which leads to some heartache for Jessa. You don't have to read the other books in the series but I would highly recommend it. Just from reading the stories and all the vivid detail that the author puts in, makes me want to visit Alaska. I received a copy for my honest review.

Eli just needs a helpful push.

    Enjoyed the story, editing needs some work This is the third book in the series I have read. I love the authors visuals of Diamond Creek, I love the storylines themselves but for some reason I noticed a lot of repetition in the story. It seemed like the author needed to fill up space. Other than that I loved it and was so glad that Eli overcame his preconceived notions of his behavior. I am looking forward to more from this Author and the last frontier lodge.

    Another great romance in Diamond Creek, Alaska. This one centers on Jessa, the youngest of the Hamilton clan, and Eli, a local businessman. Love the setting and the Hamilton family with the lodge and all of their friends. Love Eli and getting to know him and some of his background with his dysfunctional family. Really nice romance!! I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

    Same old, for good and ill I promised myself I wouldn't read any J.H. Croix books anymore. Not because her books are bad - they aren't. They're actually quite good, each of them. They're just all the same. We have a heroine with "lush curves" and "ample breasts" (there are apparently no flat chested women in Alaska) who "bites her plump lip" and flushes or blushes continually.

We have a heroine with "lush curves" and "ample breasts" (there are apparently no flat chested women in Alaska) who "bites her plump lip" and flushes or blushes continually. We have a hero "without an ounce of fat" (there are apparently no regular guys in Alaska either). The sexual attraction is over the top, preventing them from thinking (in this book they "give themselves a mental shake" continually). They both have control issues, for whatever reason, and don't like feeling out of control because of love. One or both feels "discombobulated" (now there's a word you don't see every day!). They walk in confusion until one of them speaks about the relationship, the other freezes, then apologizes and they live happily ever after. To be fair, the characters do different things, and have different reasons for their fear of relationships. In this book, I actually enjoyed the relationship with Eli's brother Ryan and his backstory more than the rest of the book. So: If this is your first Croix book: read it! Jessa is nice, Eli is interesting, their relationship unfolds well if a little fast, and the secondary characters are great. If this isn't and you know and love her style: read it! You know what you're getting into. If you're hoping for a Croix book with a thin heroine, a six-pack less hero, and no discombobulation - go somewhere else. Standalone. 3rd person point of view. Steamy.

    This is the fifth book of the series, which is Eli's and Jessa's story. It can also be read as a stand alone, but will make you want to read the others in the series with all the loveable characters.

Their story is heart felt and amusing. You will fall in love with the setting with the way J.H. Croix describes the places and the animals. I have never thought about going to Alaska but now I might. I thought this book was good and gave it 4 stars. The basic story line was fun and interesting but some of the events and phrasing of them could have been different. They seemed to always be "forgetting where they are" when they start groping each other. in a small town that would have been noticed and they would have become the rumor of the town, but some how no one says anything. Also the characters were also very forward with each other. Not often do people kiss when they barely know each other. Over all the book was a good and fun read. I highly recommend it.

What Eli did not expect was the beautiful woman whom has invaded his mind, body and soul. He never saw himself in a relationship. He is scared of becoming like his father and is afraid to let go. Will this drive Jessa away? Jessa is a beautiful person, inside and out. She is very artistic and shy. I loved reading her story and watching her open up. Eli is wonderful and kind. He is so caring and protective. This is another great toe curling cozy romance, with enough heat to light your fire. So grab that glass of wine and settle in for a nice steamy little number.

    I’ve finished this whole series and every book is amazing. I’ve fallen in love with Diamond Creek and Alaska with it, not to mention the characters whom I’ve grown quite attached to! All the books contain a lovely, heart-warming and VERY hot romance. Although each book is a standalone, I recommend reading them in the proper order as we get glimpses and clues of the next couple in the current book, and get to see the evolution of the preceding couples in each new book we’re reading.

Meanwhile, Eli is also dealing with an unforeseen life-changing situation. The hotness factor is very present here as well, and each find they’ve gained more than they’ve lost.

    Could have been 3 or 4 stars but..... Had potential but for several reasons I was left with disappointed. For starters every time the author mention the heroine’s channel all I kept thinking so is the hero the remote? There has to be another word other than channel to describe entering a woman. Secondly, I know the heroine was suppose to be quirky but you mean to tell me nowhere in her entire wardrobe did she own a dress or idk maybe jeans. The whole leggings was mention more times than I cared Could have been 3 or 4 stars but..... Had potential but for several reasons I was left with disappointed.

The whole leggings was mention more times than I cared to read about, that I was over it. Third although there some mention of time, there was no sense of a timeline. Fourth- I felt their relationship was on the basis of sex and solely sex. Fifth this author was so utterly and unnecessarily repetitive in the way she described feelings and actions. Sixth some editing would have been nice. And last but not least the only saving grace was the relationship between the hero and his brother who he stepped up to take care of.

    Jessa’s apartment recently caught fire and she’s lost everything.

    I love this series of books. Discovered them quite by accident. As you read each of these books you are taken to the small town of Diamond Creek, Alaska. The descriptions of the setting allow you to see beautiful glaciers, as well as the bay. Jessa and Eli form a relationship just as Eli's younger brother comes into his life & he is dealing with his own issues around his parents marriage. They each explore the issues of their past while finding their way to love. I love this series of books. Discovered them quite by accident.

    Another Great Story in Last Frontier Lodge Series I just want to sigh loudly after reading this sweet story. It was emotionally charged and made my stomach flip a few times. Jessa wasn’t expecting Eli and he wasn’t expecting her but they managed to find each other and fall in love. It wasn’t easy especially when Eli’s past came rearing up to cause complications. So their HEA was that much sweeter. Love this series and all the characters.

    Sweet and sexy A sweet and sexy romance between Jessa, looking to start a new life after a devastating fire, and Eli, a confirmed bachelor not looking for a relationship. It’s cute, funny and the characters are well developed and interesting. The author paints a rosy picture of life in Alaska and the thriving town of Diamond Falls. Part of a series, this can be read as a stand-alone. A very enjoyable book.

    J.H. CROIX!!! STAY WITH ME is book five in the Last Frontier series. I loved hearing Jesse and Eli's story. I really felt Jesse's pain in having to start over. Her insecurities over what she should do with her life with such successful siblings. Eli stepping up without hesitation for his brother. His fear of relationships without a good time model. I especially loved the way the community, friends and family help each other! J.H. CROIX!!! STAY WITH ME is book five in the Last Frontier series. I loved hearing Jesse and Eli's story.

    This is another novel I've read that leave me wondering what the author was thinking. While I enjoyed the plot, the author seems to have fallen flat in the narrative and left large holes for the reader to fall through. Nevertheless, I'll be reading this entire series to see if this novel was a one off or if the author can keep the plot fluent.

    Stay with me An interesting story. Because of his father, Eli had never wanted to have a,serious relationship. His,life was,changed when he met Jenna and his younger brother Ryan showed up. Eli and Jenna were immediately drawn to each other. A little too much detail for my liking, but still a good story. I gave,it 4 stars.
