Absolutely amazing. Would recommend for anybody. Couple minor editing issues, but they don't take from the story.

I liked this book don't get me wrong but there were some definate editing issues. Parts where one character would be telling the story but then it would switch mid paragragh then correct itself leaving you questioning WTH? Some parts of the story seemed like it could have been left out because it really did not tie in. What I did like about this book is that it kept me guessing as to what would happen at the end. All in all I don't regret buying this it was worth it even with the flaws I personally found.

I have never written a review for a book, but I had to for this one!! I read this in one day and could not put it down. As someone who has been affected by suicide, I found myself captivated by this story. One of the best books i have read in awhile. This is a must read for everyone.

Suicide . . . depression . . . grief . . . abuse . . . these are all very difficult and emotive subjects which I feel S A Rolls tries to deal with openly and with a certain amount of dignity until the book reaches what other reviewers have called a 'great' and 'clever' twist I honestly think the author almost turns the book into a parody of itself. The Phoenix the reader is shown is able to gain strength from her friendship with Rain (SO my favourite character in the story!) and her honesty with Braeden to become more settled and balanced; allowing herself to feel love. Some may feel that initially S A Rolls enters dangerous territory as the relationship between Braeden and Phoenix begins whilst she is still in a vulnerable position as a psychiatric patient and he is a hospital aide. However, S A Rolls does express the depth of emotion which they both share which is magnetic and undeniable, meaning the reader is almost willing to see past a 'forbidden love' for the sake of their happiness. A Brand New Ending is painful, emotionally draining and challenging but unfortunately I found I was disappointed at the times when I needed the most fulfilment. Still one I would suggest adding to a TBR pile :-)

Ok, here is the deal. I sometimes write parts of a review before I am finished with the book. And I did so with this one. I had about 4 paragraphs telling why I liked it and what I didn’t like about it. There was more no likey than likey. I even had my heart set on rating this book 3 stars. But then that ending happened. Oh lordy, did that ending change everything. In the last review I started with what I loved…but now that I have scraped that one I will start with what I didn’t really like. At first, when reading this story I was thinking how unprofessional everyone at the hospital was, especially Dr. Harris. I kept shaking my head and wondering how a hospital could function by being so lax and letting their patients have free reign. There was absolutely no rehabbing in this rehab! But with that amazing ending I now understand. I can hardly contain myself thinking back on it all. So I guess, after finishing the story, it is not really a problem now is it? But in the first half of the story, and peppered throughout the 2nd half, there was a lot of telling. So much so, I skimmed through several parts. I really don't need to know what the character is doing every second of the scene. So yeah, that was a problem. Also, there was quite a few errors and typos. Something that had me pausing and rereading some scenes. But not enough to really hold me up too long. Now for what I did like… I enjoyed the romance part the most. I adored how much Braeden and Phoenix loved each other and it was with their whole hearts. Yes, even in just the short time they knew each other, I found their relationship and their love believable. I had no problems falling right along with them and enjoyed the parts leading up to the fall. They were magical together and it was so beautiful to read. And, once again the ending played a huge part with their romance and I think I love them even more when it was all said and done. Le sigh! So here I was thinking I wasn’t really into this story as much as I wanted to be. But then I finished and it all came slinking into place for me. Puzzle pieces aligned and I was totally smitten. That ending? That one that was a game changer for me? That is how books should end. It totally came out of left field and was a whopper. I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for lots of romance and a book with an ending you won’t see coming.

I am speechless, this book literally took my breath away. I bought this book along with many others at the time, and I am so mad with myself that I waited to read it last! The relationship between these two characters is one I will never forget and I will be referring this book to eveyone I know. Such a beautiful, heartbreaking and uplifting story all in one, don't hesitate like I did! I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more books by miss Rolls! :)

There’s not much I can say about this book other than…WOW WOW WOW WOW!! It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve read it and I still can’t stop thinking about it. To put it simply, it was perfect. It made me cry (happy and sad tears) for what the characters go through in the story, and because it was over when I really wanted it to keep going! I hope S.A. reads this and says, “Aww, maybe I’ll write a second book or novella then…” ;) Trust me on this; you won’t regret purchasing A Brand New Ending. I truly believe that. If you love an epic love story that stands the test of time, pick up this book. Phoenix is looking for a way out from her awful life. Her dad is gone and she’s been living with her mother and her mother’s boyfriend for far too long, and she has the scars and bruises to show it. Knowing it’s not the best option, she jumps to end her life and get away from the pain she’s suffering every day. Once it’s clear that she really wants to live and flee the constant abuse, she decides to stay in the psychiatric hospital she’s put in. The doctors and hospital aides know that she’s really looking for an escape from her abusive home and they give her the support she needs. Her doctor’s son, Braeden (who also happens to be an aide in the hospital) wants to be the one she opens up to. Something changes in him the moment he sees her, and the attraction is mutual…it’s the closest thing to love at first sight–correction, it IS love at first sight, and perhaps fate. You get to read about Phoenix and Braeden’s stages of love, and will be captivated by the magnitude of their devotion to each other. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking, all at the same time. Without giving anything away, you’ll find out why they both get to have their “brand new ending”. :) Once again, I’m speechless…or on the other hand, I’m not because I can go on and on about how and why I adored this book so much. I’m getting emotional just trying to think of what to say about it because it was such a beautiful story. It touched my heart and I hope that if you get a chance to read it, you’ll feel the same way. This is the kind of story that you will want to read over and over again, and we all know there’s not many of those nowadays. I admit, I sometimes read the ending or certain passages when I’m up late just because I need to. This is the type of book that will stay with you forever… or at least for me it will. A Brand New Ending has shot its way to the top in being one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE books! It’s a must read and one that everyone will enjoy. An OUTSTANDING first novel by S.A. Rolls! I truly can’t wait to read what’s next by this gifted author. :) I also wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes that really stood out to me from the book: “Death captures the dying, but sorrow steals from those left behind” “We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love” “What do you have to lose when you have nothing left?” “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

Wow! What a book! I am so glad that I got to be a part of this blog tour. From the moment I opened it to page one, I was hooked. I am a sucker for books that have a very dark side to them. Something where the main character internal and external problems that they feel that they are facing alone. That is Phoenix. Phoenix feels that she is’t worthy of living. Everyone that she has ever loved has left her, and she was left to the brutal hands of Carl. What she doesn’t realize is that this failed attempt could possible save her life. When I think about this story, all I think about is the internal connection of Phoenix and Brayden. It is out of this world. S.A. Rolls has written a book that will have people both young and old in tears, heart full of life, fear, and pain. My favorite thing about this book is the way that it is written. You can see directly into the mind of both Phoenix and Brayden. Knowing what they are each feel and everything that is going on around them only makes you love this story even more. There is a major twist that I NEVER saw coming. I think honestly when I realized what was going on my belief in faith grew to where I thought my heart was going to burst it was so full. You will love Phenix and Brayden even more that you thought was possible. This book will have you believing in finding the purpose of life, what it means to live, escape your past, and look/hold onto your future!

A Brand New Ending is an emotionally gripping tale about a girl named Phoenix. Phoenix’s life was not the best, and she just wanted it out of it, to make all the bad things stop. The only way she knew how to do this is by taking herself out of the equation. Unfortunately for her. she ends up in a psychiatric hospital, not where she planned. Like the Phoenix of legend, she has risen from her ashes and must start her life in anew, in a matter of speaking. It is at the hospital that she meets Braeden. The romance that blossoms between this two is bittersweet and passionate. From the moment that they see each other, they are captivated by one another. Their bond forms instantly. Through Phoenix’s trials and tribulations, Braeden is by her side, and would do anything for her. S.A. Rolls is a new voice that will definitely be heard. Her writing style, twists and turns, and wonderfully complex characters keep the reader entranced. A Brand New Ending is just the beginning of this writer’s creative talent.
