Review- Stay With Me by Cynthia Eden


Shelly Hampton intends to spend the holidays alone in her family’s mountain cabin, but when a snow-covered stranger appears on her door-step, her plans are shot straight to hell. The man before her seems oddly familiar, and he stirs a dark need within her. 

It’s soon apparent that John Smith is far more than a normal man—he’s too strong, too fast, and she could swear that he seems to read her thoughts…and know her most secret desires. 

But is John a man that she could love…or is he someone she should fear? Because even as the snow fall deepens, a deadly threat is closing in on her little cabin. And soon, Shelly will be trapped on the mountain with a dangerous man…a man who swears that he has come back from the dead, just to be with her. 

STAY WITH ME…A “Lazarus Rising” Novella 

Release date: December 12th, 2017

I really enjoy Cynthia Eden's books from time to time. She just knows how to combine romance with a suspense plot. The Lazarun Rising series actually combines romance, suspense and a little bit of paranormal as well. You may think how would that go but Cynthia Eden makes it work beautifully. Stay With Me is the third book in the series and it is more of a longer novella. All these books can be read as stand alones so you don't need to go in any order.

I have been reading the Lazarus Rising series right from the beginning. Basically there are soldiers which were enhanced by the Lazarus formula which makes them super soldiers but with that comes the risk of losing your sanity. Some have already gone over to the dark side but there are a few who remain tethered by love.

Stay With Me is the story of John and Shelley. The novella takes place over the holiday period and this is probably the most far fetched one out of the rest but somehow Cynthia Eden makes it work. John does not remember his past. All he knows in his gut is that he knows Shelley. Shelley has never met John and when he comes to find her Shelley is in danger.

I loved the chemistry between Shelley and John. They were smart and sensible. I love how Cynthia Eden's heroines are feminine and strong with their head on their shoulders. John was a good hero, protective, and he only wanted what was best for Shelley. I also loved seeing familar faces from the previous books and I can't wait for the next book to come out. If you still haven't tried out a Cynthia Eden book I would highly recommend giving the Lazarus Rising series a try.
