A Brand New Ending
By Jennifer Probst
Releasing October 23rd, 2018
A love story will be rewritten in this heartfelt romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
Ophelia Bishop was a lovestruck teenage girl when she and Kyle Kimpton chased their dreams to Hollywood. Kyle’s dreams came true. Ophelia’s did not. When Kyle chose his career over their relationship, Ophelia returned home to rural New York to run the family’s B & B—wiser, and more guarded against foolish fantasies. Now Kyle has come crashing back into her life, and all her defenses are down.
Kyle can’t think of a better place to write his latest screenplay than his hometown. After all, that was where he met the heart of his inspiration—his first love. He knows the damage he’s caused Ophelia, and he wants a chance to mend their relationship. If anyone can prove to Ophelia that happy ever afters aren’t only for the movies, it should be him.
As much as Ophelia’s changed, she still has feelings for Kyle. But her heart has been broken before, and she knows that Kyle could run back to Hollywood at any time. She gave up her dreams once, but maybe she can dare to change her own love story…one last time.

In A Brand New Ending (Stay #2) by Jennifer Probst, Ophelia Bishop and Kyle Kimpton ran away together in hopes of making a name for themselves in Hollywood. However, while things worked out for Kyle, they didn't for Ophelia and she returned to their hometown and now runs her family's B & B. Yet, time and distance hasn't diminished their feelings for each other and when Kyle arrives at her doorstep looking to stay for a while, she eventually and reluctantly agrees. But when it's time for Kyle to head back to Hollywood, will he break Ophelia's heart all over again or will the pair fight for the second chance at happy ever after?
Having really enjoyed the first book of this series, I couldn't wait to read more about the Bishop family because Ophelia and her siblings have a tight bond after all that's happened in their lives and deserve every bit of happiness they find. The way this story started with the prologue had me immediately hooked to the fast-paced storyline, as I wanted to know how things went wrong between Kyle and Ophelia when it's palpable they were so in love. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time after what happened in the past where this story really takes off and gets very interesting, as Kyle is a painful reminder of her past and it's understandable why she wants nothing to do with him. He hurt her badly by not being everything she needed ten years ago.
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and everything this couple go through on their journey to happy ever after. Will Ophelia be able to forgive Kyle? Will Kyle finally discover how their relationship went so wrong and why Ophelia left the way she did? Moreover, I really enjoyed the obstacles these two face to be together and the depth of emotion Ms. Probst put into this story that had me smiling, laughing, crying because their second chance felt like -- at times -- it wasn't going to happen and had me shedding happy tears when it finally did.
With the main characters, the heroine was resilient, courageous, feisty and I could understand why she's wary of giving the hero another chance because of what happened between them in the past. Kyle really hurt her with his 'suck-it-up' attitude when she was struggling to handle being in Hollywood and everything it entails. Since trying to break into the show business industry is so cutthroat. While the hero, he's confident, driven when it comes to his career, persistent in his pursuit of winning the heroine's trust back and I liked that he didn't give up on winning the heroine over. I also liked the decisions the hero has to make when it comes to his career and his future with the heroine. This time around, things are going to be different. Can he prove to Ophelia that things are going to be different?
Overall, Ms. Probst has delivered a wonderfully-written and enthralling read in this book where the main characters are well-developed; the secondary characters entertained me just as much as the main ones; the chemistry between this couple was off-the-charts; the romance was full of heat and passion and had me loving how these two find their way back to each other; and the ending left me completely satisfied because of what the hero does in order to show the heroine that their life together is the most important thing to him. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up perfectly, as a new opportunity opens for the hero when it comes to his career and it shows that forgiveness is possible when it comes to the past. I would recommend A Brand New Ending by Jennifer Probst, if you enjoy second chance romances, the brother's best friend trope or books by authors Melissa Foster, Marina Adair, Catherine Bybee and Jill Shalvis.
