Stay a Little LongerStay a Little Longer by Dawn Lanuza

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



“Now he knew that sometimes, life offered you a window to stumble through into something wonderful. All one had to do was be present enough to recognize the opportunity and be brave enough to jump into it.

He had missed a lot of windows because he’d hesitated. Sometimes hesitating is wise; it saves you from recklessness and trouble. But some things are worth the trouble.

Elan didn’t want to miss the window again.”

⚠ Read if: you are looking for a quick bittersweet swoony read.

Stay a Little Longer is my first Dawn Lanuza read. I feel so happy to finally get to read one of her works, knowing this one was from #romanceclass and I love Ms. Mina V. Esguerra so much!

To be honest, I thought the author only wrote poetry. Surprisingly, she has other NA romance reads that I am very excited to add to my endless TBR pile.

This is the story of Elan, a lawyer from Manila, and Caty, a girl trying to find her place in the world (at the beginning, it was Toronto). I initially thought this was a happened-in-one-night read. It wasn’t, but it was still a romantic adventure.

This novel is a Will They? or Won’t They? type of read. Two people who are insanely attracted to each other, who do not really know much about each other and are literally miles apart have to decide whether or not to take chances on a budding romance.

All in all, a quick read but definitely ticked all the kilig boxes.
