If You Stay by Courtney Cole

This book starts out with bad boy Pax overdosing in his car when Mila walks by. She has never seen anything like that and really doesn't know what to do other than call 911. When Pax wakes up in the hospital and realizes that Mila saved his life. She stops by and visits him. Neither one can figure out why there is a pull between the two.  They can't seem to stay away from each other. Mila tries to help Pax become the person he wants to be for her. Basically, he is trying to give up the drugs, alcohol and sex for her. Pax's mother died when he was 7 and he really doesn't remember anything from before her death. As they begin to grow closer  he begins to dream about his mom and he can't figure out why. 

I liked this book b/c it is a little bit different. I have never had much to do with the drug world so it was interesting watching some of the characters reactions to the situations. You really want Pax to turn and be a great guy but at the same time you know he is going to fall off and its going to be horrible. 

I would give this book a 4 out of 5.  There is another book coming out about Mila's sister. I am really looking forward to reading it.
