A Brand New Ending Blog Tour and Giveaway!!

Title: A Brand New Ending
Author: S.A. Rolls
Genre: Contemporary Romance/New Adult

Phoenix Harper never imagined her life would come to this: A life not worth living anymore.
After a failed suicide attempt, Phoenix is sent to be observed at a local psychiatric hospital. There she meets Braeden Harris, a hospital aide with his own haunting past.
Not long after their first encounter, they feel an unexplainable pull towards one another. Will fate bring them together, or will outside forces tear them apart?

ABNE was an interesting read, I liked the premise of the book. It was a tad on the depressing/angsty side, but I like darker reads, and the fact that the author wasn't afraid to write about the topic of suicide. I loved the romantic aspect and the book cover. The style of writing made the book a long read to me, and there were parts that were a bit confusing to me while reading. But when you get to the plot twist at the end, you'll understand why these little details happen. For me, I wasn't a big fan of the plot twist at the end, though it made sense, it just didn't seem realistic. 

Phoenix was out of hope and felt the only way out of her pain was to end her life. Her attempts fail and she finds herself in a mental hospital, where she meets Braeden. He was a med student, working as an orderly at the hospital. The two are drawn to each other and unable to deny their feelings. But you can't save someone that doesn't want to be saved, Braeden hopes this isn't the case with Phoenix.

Overall, this was a good read, and you really won't predict the ending of the book. It literally is A Brand New Ending. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a darker NA romance, with a small twist of mindfu** at the end!

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

"I don't want to go anywhere, Braeden. Wherever you are is where I want to be."

I think my heart does a back flip. "You have no idea how happy that makes me, hearing you say that."

She gives me a sly smile, her fingers playing in and around mine.

"Can't describe how amazing this feels," she speaks. "I've never had anyone care for me like you do."

"That's a shame," I respond quickly. "You deserve so much more than that."

"Do I?"

I lean over her so that our faces are close but I make sure to do it gently, afraid that she might retreat from my touch.

"Yes," I say softly as our eyes are locked on each other.

We hold our position and I can tell she is nervous, but I want her to make the first move. I made the mistake of pushing it on her the first time and I won't be doing that again. I can feel the heat of her breath on my face, its oddly intoxicating. But I hold still. I start to count the number of my heartbeats when I suddenly feel force against my lips. I hold back the smile, my hand coming up to cup her cheek. I start to move my lips against her, the waves of ecstasy flowing through my body. After a second, her lips start to move in unison with mine. I've kissed lots of women, but it's never felt quite like this. I don't know how long it lasts, but I refrain from sticking my tongue in her mouth, fearing that may be too much. I then swear I feel her moan in my mouth, and it's the most incredible fucking turn on I have ever heard in my life. She must have realized it too considering she pulled her lips off mine, her hands coming up to her mouth.
