REVIEW - Staying For Good (Most Likely To #2) by Catherine Bybee
Release Date: 24 January 2017
Zoe Brown may have been voted Most Likely to Never Leave River Bend, but the paper-thin walls and suffocating air of her family’s double-wide trailer were not what she wanted for her life. Other than BFFs Melanie and Jo, the only thing that kept Zoe sane during high school was her boyfriend, Luke.
She didn’t just leave, she escaped—turning her back on the shame of her black-sheep siblings and imprisoned dad. Now a celebrity chef in Dallas, she can afford all the things she never could have growing up. But when she returns to rustic, ruggedly beautiful River Bend, Zoe has to face all that she abandoned—including Luke.
While Luke was a refuge for Zoe in the past, he knows they inhabit totally different worlds now. Anchored by his parents and his job as a mechanic in his father’s shop, Luke never felt the urge to leave River Bend—until Zoe’s return.
But when the two rekindle their old flame, Zoe is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: remain in River Bend and confront her past before it destroys her, or say good-bye to everyone she’s ever loved…again, this time for good.
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Montlake Romance, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
I REALLY enjoyed reading Zoe and Luke's second chance romance, but even in book one we knew that forces were really strong between them and it would not be long before they ended up together.
We get some dramatic events in this book, just like the first and again it keeps you in suspense as you never quite know how events are going to collide until in happens.
Zoe has a lot of sass and ambition, but it is only when Luke finally shows up in Texas she realises just how much she has missed him and finds her choices and wants changing.
Although the past catches up with Zoe, it is Luke and her friends that pull her through it all and keep her the strong person that she is.
I loved how Luke decided that he was finally willing to up his roots to find a home wherever Zoe was and that he made sure that he was sure and steady and just what she needed.
Another brilliant and must read from Catherine Bybee.
