Buy A BRAND NEW ENDING (Paperback)

I noticed the cover of this book quite some time away and that alone made me curious. I absolutely loved it from the moment I laid eyes on it. Well done to Mayhem Cover Creations for yet another great cover design job!

So I eyed this book cover and then saw it again a while later... and the minute I got a request to review, I nearly chocked on my coffee to respond quick enough.

Originally the book starts out as a kind of YA novel. But as the story progresses, it definitely slips into more of a New Adult Read.

For her debut novel, author S.A. Rolls doesn't make a splash - she makes a water bomb! While I got into the story, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It went along the lines of a really sweet, really emotional romance read. But hello f-bomb ending... you just threw me right into a crazy spiral. I didn't see it coming, I didn't even think about it... the plot completely blindsided me. Awesome!

A Brand New Ending is an emotionally deep tale about a girl named Phoenix - She's a complete and utter mess. Things haven't been great in her childhood home for a very long time. The only way to make all the pain stop - is to just end it all.

- I actually don't really know how to write this review without giving to much away here. Each time I want to say something about what happens, I find myself clamping down on it because I just know I'm going to spoil it if I keep on going into to much detail. -

But what you need to know is that Phoenix meets a student doctor named Braeden. There's a connection right from the start and yes, you will read it and go... surely not, it's way to quick and much to inst-love... but hey... there's a twist, hold out until the end. It all makes sense eventually, trust me.

So between Phoenix and Braeden - they both help each other in ways they didn't even see coming. It's truly a beautiful tale. Emotional, mysterious and outright freaky at times. I enjoyed the connection I felt between both Phoenix and Braeden. Even with all the insta-connection stuff, it was well played out and beautifully put together... you don't doubt for an second, that what they have is real... Or maybe you do... lol... ok - enough now. I'm going to spoil it.

So the twist? Boy is it twisty. I keep wanting to say freaky, and yes it definitely is, but it's freaky-good.

This book is so unique and I really want to point that out. I have yet to read anything similar to this. The writing is good, the story flows well and all-round this is just a really great read. Especially if you take into consideration that it's a first attempt for author S.A. Rolls...

It's emotional, passionate and yes... the ending is definitely unlike any I've ever seen... therefore the title of this book is absolutely fitting!
