Publisher's Summary

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.

Adored It

Superior work. Extremely touching. Ms. Probst’s novels are always a complete story. I can’t wait for book three in this series.

Jennifer Probst Just Keeps Getting Better!

I started with The Marriage Bargain series, worked my way through the Searching For series, devoured the Billionaire Builders series, and cannot wait for the next installment of the Stay series.

The characters are well developed, the storyline is captivating, and the dialogue keeps the reader entertained throughout.

A Brand New Ending

This is the second installment in this series and oh so good! Kyle has come back and needs to stay at the B&B but Ophelia turns him away, after all she cannot have him staying with her after she ran away from their marriage. Oh yeah, the marriage her family doesn't know about, and the marriage she doesn't realize didn't end in divorce as they had planned because of a scammer attorney. Kyle has had writer's block and is tired of writing the same thing and knows that coming home will do the trick, that and he wants Ophelia back. These two are something special and so is the entire family. Watching them learn to love again was great but will it last knowing Kyle will eventually have to go back to LA? Definitely a recommended read for me!

Wow....This book will pull you in.

When an author can make you feel the characters emotions and be in the story with them, it makes a great book. Enjoy and thank you Jennifer.

Exceptional Ending

I have always enjoyed Ms Probst's books. This is one with a lot more character development and growth than normal.

I cried at the ending which is unusual for this kind of book but it is well worth the read and a re-read.

So very confused

I so wanted to like this book. Who doesn’t love second chances.  At one point in our lives most of us find ourselves in need of one. A chance for a do over so we can right whatever wrongs we have made or just pick another path. There is something about redemption and finding ones way to where they are meant to be. So heartwarming and fun to read. This is not that story. Yes, they get their obligatory happily ever after, but by the time they got there I not only didn’t care, but couldn’t stand either of Ophelia or Kyle. Not even a little. What kind of jerk actually believes that it is okay to just show up after 10 years to pick up where things were left off for only the most self serving narcissistic ego driven desires. He wants her to fix what is broken in his life because he believes she broke it. He was clueless about why she left. He only wants her back because he can't do his job. Would he have ever come back if not for writers block. Doubtful. All of the legal paperwork for their not legal divorce could have been handled by attorneys and with his stockpile of money. Ophelia is sweet, smart and kind, but in serious need of a spine. She does what is expected of her and allows everyone to lead her to what they think she wants. Mia, the most obnoxious sister in law in the world should just cut the “I’m from NY so I’m smarter and better than everyone else so of course I'm right and you should do what I say without question. Oh and if you say no I will shame you pick at whatever I know will hurt you most to get you to submit what I want attitude”. I am a born and bred New Yorker. That is no one that I've ever met. I kept waiting for someone to act like an actual adult, but when Kyle spewed the words "I forgive you for leaving" I was done. Seriously? I’m a pacifist and even I wanted to slap him into next week and I have never in my life hit anyone nor would I. Ethan, her brother has some nerve telling Kyle he could stay at her inn knowing she was clear in her response of a hard no. What kind of brother wouldn’t push harder with either of them to see what happened? Oh one who only wants what he wants. There was not a single character that did not manipulate Ophelia to get what they wanted. And she kept allowing it to happen. The only positive thing I can say is that the narration of the audiobook was good.

Loooooong story

I really wanted to love this story but I just couldn’t. So much repetition throughout the book. The story going soooooooo slowly. It bored me.
Narration however was very good.

I loved Kyle and Ophelia's story! Their brand new ending was perfect. Everyone deserves a second chance. The narration was brought to life with such precision and beauty♥️
