Just Stay by Michelle Abbott



The last place Pia wants to be is on a family vacation in a sleepy Cornish village. She's anticipating two weeks of mind-numbing boredom. Then she meets Trey, a local boy. He's absolutely gorgeous. The trouble is — he knows it. He's arrogant and egotistical, and Pia intends to avoid him at all costs.

But Trey is not the kind of guy who gives up easily. When he sets his sights on Pia, her resistance is futile.

It's just a holiday romance, some light-hearted fun, right? But one of them is about to discover that still waters do, indeed, run deep. When what lurks beneath the surface finally erupts, the consequences may prove to be catastrophic.

For age 17+ due to sexual content and strong language.
 


4.5 Ima Jerkoff stars 

Pia is your typical teenage girl about to go to college. She's off for a two week vacation with her family, in whitch she's not happy about putting it lightly. There she meets Trey, an arrogant and egotistical boy and her vacation takes a whole other turn. 

I was kinda iffy about it being YA/NA, cause they tend to be a little to muchy and romancy for my tastes. But boy was I wrong. 

The story is told in dual point of view. The first half is from Pia's and the second it switches to Trey's. 
It was gripping how the emothion changed from one POV to the other. The first half was light hearted and fun, it makes you laugh and roll your eyes as Pia fell under Trey's charm. The second half had more raw and deeper emotions. 

“His name’s Ima Jerkoff,” I announce. I notice Mum and Dad’s eyes widen in shock. Ha, get out of that one, jerk. I fold my arms and smirk at him. He covers his mouth with his hand; he appears to be having a coughing fit.”

Pia kinda annoyed me at first. I didn't think she was that interesting character and at times I wanted to yell at her but page after page she grew on me. I really enjoyed reading her POV and being in her head, how she thought things through and analyzed them was so funny.

“So how come you singled me out for special treatment?”

“You’re beautiful Pia. I enjoy being with you. Truth is, I can’t stay away from you. And my dick twitches whenever I’m near you.” 


loved Trey. At first you think he's your typical cocky, egoistical bastard but no, this guy just knows what he wants and fights for it. And he wants Pia. When you find out his story, you really feel for him and what he went through. What he still goes through. His POV is heart-wrenching and you root for him to get his happy ending finally and find the love that he deserves and needs so much.

I also enjoyed meeting Pia's friend Fay in Trey's POV. She had me cracking up with her comments and I really needed some laugh in his half of the book.

Even though I had some problems with the plot, SPOILER ALERT [ how convenient it was for Pia to transfer to another college close to Trey, it was too predictable], I really enjoyed this story. The author did a great job dealing with some heavy subjects like mental abuse, suicide, depression. I fell in love with Pia and Trey's characters and I wanted them to have their HEA so bad. 
I highly reccomend this. You will not be disapointed.

PS1 Trey was listening 'Wrecking Ball' in the car? For real? 

PS2 Trey's dad is a DICK. I just had to say it.

PS3 I hope we get a sequel. I'm interested to see how they're life turned out after so many changes.

☽ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you. ☽
