I’ll admit the ending in my second book of the Rory Choice series was a cruel way to leave Rory and the reader. But life isn’t always happy, and I knew that losing both Jake and Duke would be the biggest catalyst-of-change for our ever maturing Rory. Stopping the story in the middle of pain gives the reader time to marinade the possible courses Rory’s life will take, and let’s face it, still hoping the story will somehow end up happy.
As to the direction of Rory’s life, you’ll have to wait until book three comes out in fall 2016, but let me assure you, I’m probably the biggest sap you’ll ever meet. I wouldn’t have been satisfied with anything less than a happy ending. I hope it’s an ending that you will find just as satisfying.
