A Brand New Ending by 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.

My Review: Ophelia Bishop, aka Tink, was in love with her brother Ethan’s best friend, Kyle Kimpton. Kyle had a rough time growing up in rural New York; his mother died while giving birth to him and his father, Patrick resented the fact that she chose her son’s life over her own. However, the more significant issue was Patrick’s alcoholism. Kyle always dreamed he would be a famous screenwriter in Hollywood and while he chased his dream, he thought Ophelia would pursue her dream of becoming a singer. The lovestruck teenagers take off to live their dreams in California, only one of them returns to New York to run the family’s Bed and Breakfast.

After ten years Kyle Kimpton needs to write his next story back at the place where it all started his hometown, so he calls his best friend, Ethan Bishop who gives him the all clear to come back home and stay at the Inn. There’s no place like home, but you can never go back there again, to the way things were. Things change, people change, and sometimes you get what you need, not what you want. A second chance at happiness, at the life they only dreamed of when they were teenagers, but will it be? Can you go back?

Jennifer Probst has been writing since the age of twelve. She writes what she loves, and knows, like romance and dogs. She often includes animals in all her tales; Hei-Hei is a Polish Chicken who is a rescued with an attitude. But he is only a small part of the managery of Harper Bishop; there are of course lots of dogs and horses that both Harper and Ethan rehabilitate. Jennifer also has a new group called the Ladies Who Write, sound familiar? I love the fact that she includes a part of her personal life into her novels. Get ready for another unusual second chance romance, and I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did.

Contemporary Romance
Stand Alone
Designed by: Letitia Hasser RBA designs



Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart.
What you didn’t know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and
everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to
forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground,
but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,

“I need you to break my heart,” she declares, wringing her hands nervously. “Give
me a reason to hate you, because wanting you this way is…it’s ruining me. It’s
ruining my life.”

She is dead serious.
Lifting her chin, as if ready to take a blow, her turbulent eyes implore mine. “Tell me
about them. Tell me about all of the women you’ve been with since Germany.”

“No.” I shake my head. “Hell no.”

“Oh, please, Briggs. How long did you wait? A few days?” She laughs sarcastically. “I
bet you didn’t even make it a day.”

She’s coming out guns blazing, and I can see it’s physically killing her to do it.

“Are we playing the guessing game? Do I get to ask how many times you’ve fucked
your husband?”

“Sure,” she says with a shrug. “We’ll trade. You go first.”

She’s bluffing, and I’m calling her on it.

“Don’t do this, Scottie. You don’t really want to hear about that.”

“Humor me, Briggs.” Her eyes plead with mine. “I need to hear this.”

“Fine. You want the truth?”

She nods.

“Complete honesty?”

Again, she bobs her head.

She stands stock-still as I pace the small room, feeling the blood begin to boil
beneath my overheated skin.

Fuck it.
I stalk back toward her, stopping inches away. “You really want to know that there
have been so many that I’ve lost count? How they’re all blondes with blue eyes? But
the blue, it’s never right, and their smiles—all wrong.”

She swats at the fresh tears that trail down her cheeks as her lips begin to tremble.
Reaching out, she places a hand on my chest, and I know that she must feel the way
my heart is pounding against my rib cage, reaching for her. Always reaching for her.

I jerk myself away and brand that touch to memory.

In about forty-five seconds, my heart is going to implode. I start ticking them

“You want me to tell you all about how I have to drink myself stupid, till their faces
blur enough that I can pretend…” I pause running a hand down my face. “So that I
can pretend they’re you? You want to know how fucking miserable I am? How when
I slide between their legs, I close my eyes, and it’s your face I see? How I’m always
careful not to kiss them because their lips are all wrong. How every time I finish I

want to fucking kill myself, because I can’t stand the pain of wanting the one woman
I can never have.”

Thirty seconds.

“Is that enough?” Her eyes snap to mine. “Hate me yet?”

Face crumbling, she gasps out a sob, wrapping her arms around her shoulders.

“Come on, Scottie. Let’s not kid ourselves. I’m still the same prick you hated when
we met. Nothing’s changed. I think we’ve romanticized this situation long enough,
don’t you?”

Taking another step away from her, I tilt my head. “You’re a housewife,” I say
snidely. “Someone else’s wife and I’m a career soldier. This isn’t exactly ideal.”

She flinches visibly, and my heart bottoms out.


I cut my hand through the air. “At the end of the day, this was nothing but a big
mistake. And we never would have happened if—”

“Stop,” she cries out painfully, “stop, I’m good,” she whispers before rocketing
toward the door just as I reach for her, my fingers curling in the space she just left.
Handle in hand, she looks back at me with the sweep of her eyes until they meet
mine. That’s how we started, and it’s only fitting it’s how we should end. For the
moment, we’re right back there in the place we created, where we are perfect.
Where our souls line up without any visible smudge on the seams. In a place where
there is still so much love, so much that I can’t stop the tear that slides out before
batting it away with the back of my hand.

An identical tear runs down her cheek. “Thank you.”
