A Brand New Ending, Stay Book 2, Jennifer Probst

A Brand New Ending (Stay Book 2) by [Probst, Jennifer]

Genre:General fiction (adult), Romance

Stupidly I was drawn to the blurb, knew I’d enjoyed some of Jennifer’s stories before and didn’t check. This series isn’t going to be for me, I didn’t like the first book, and didn’t enjoy this one. My bad, its a good story for many readers, just doesn’t suit my taste.

I just didn’t really understand why these two split, why Ophelia just left, why he didn’t seek her out before, and what had changed. She still didn’t want the life he led, he still didn’t want hers. I know Love conquers all, but when two people have such wildly differing ambitions can they ever be happy. One of them is going to have to fold, and in the long term will that work? I wasn’t convinced by the ending. Maybe if I’d liked either character a bit more, or even felt that they were truly suited, but if so why didn’t they work at getting back together before, why wait? The timing now seemed a little too convenient, if I was Ophelia I’d be thinking, Now he’s got time, why not before and equally if I was Kyle I’d be thinking Is she just going to spook and disappear again? There needed to be some serious love between them for it to work, and if there was how could they just stay away all those years. Maybe I’m too much the cynic.

Stars:Two and a half, I liked it a little more than book one, but wasn’t convinced by the story. I’ll still look for Jennifer’s books but make a note that this particular series isn’t for me.
