{Review} {Giveaway} Staying For Good (Most Likely To #2) by Catherine Bybee

About The Book

Staying For Good by Catherine Bybee

Series:  (Most Likely To #2)
Publication Date: January 24, 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance


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. 


The Most Likely series features three best friends ~ Mel, Jo and Zoe. Their enduring bond of friendship made a spectacular foundation for the other relationships within the story. Luke and Zoe’s childhood experiences varied greatly, this makes their obstinate history more pronounced. Of course, the author handles the blending of that history with the personalities they have grown into – without diminishing the motivations of two complex, real characters.
