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.
Pursuit Of Dreams
Kyle, Ethan, and Ophelia did everything together as kids. When Ophelia started to mature, Kyle's thoughts were never far from her. But Kyle and Ethan were best friends, with Ophelia being Ethan's younger sister. Knowing they risked their tight friendship, Ophelia and Kyle decided to keep their relationship a secret. After suffering years of abuse from his alcoholic father, Kyle convinced Ophelia to run off to Hollywood with him to pursue their dreams. Only, he didn't ask Ophelia what her dreams really were.
Upon arriving in Hollywood, they marry. Kyle has success becoming a screenwriter, while Ophelia's singing career fails. Their youth, combined with Kyle's strive to become a success, puts a strain on their new marriage. Ophelia decides Hollywood isn't for her and tries to tell Kyle, but he won't listen. So she leaves him and runs home to run the Inn with her mom.
Ten years later, Kyle suffers from writer's block. He thinks if he moves back home away from the stress and demands of Hollywood, he'll be back to writing in no time. What Kyle doesn't expect, is the bitterness and hate Ophelia feels towards him. Kyle never truly understood why Ophelia left him, but as he gets to know her again he realizes he was all wrong. Ophelia was meant to help others and make their lives better. While she loved singing, she didn't like everything else that went with the lifestyle of a professional singer. As he writes their story and painstakingly confronts his past, he realizes he needs a new ending...
This novel is the second story in the series. While I enjoyed Ophelia and Kyle's story, it was more on the emotional side dealing with death, alcoholism, and abuse. The first story in the series is more rom com. I really missed Hei Hei's crazy antics in this novel. I did like the crossover to Jennifer Probst's other series with the mention of LWW! Enjoyable second chance romance novel. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
