“If I let go, will you catch me?”
He had wanted her to help him win his ex-girlfriend back. She had wanted to teach him a few lessons on how to treat a woman. Neither one had planned for the unexpected.
I couldn’t stand by and watch. It hit too close to home. I had to run fast and far to get away and forget him. He weaseled his way into my life, making me question rules I lived by and turned my orderly life upside down. I’m falling apart and coming undone. I don’t do that. I’m Madison Stuart. I live life by my rules. I won’t be derailed by a man. I won’t…I can’t.
She’s gone. I’m desperate and going insane. I’ll do whatever it takes to find her. I don’t know when it happened, but I won’t let her go, not like this. What has she done to me? I’m Rick Marin for crying out loud. I don’t chase women, but she’s not just a woman. She’s Maddy–my Maddy–and I need her.
Follow Rick and Madison’s story, The Do Over’s most notorious couple, as they learn that It’s Not Over.

~ EXCERPT ~
I selected what I wanted him to wear, and I tucked the rest away in the closet. As I was running my hands along the lapel of the blazer, I heard him exit the bathroom.
“You’re a slob,” I said flatly.
“I was just following your orders. Your text said to focus, get in the shower, and not make you late.” He came up behind me, and lowering his head, he tickled my neck with his lips. “Picking out my clothes?”
My eyes closed as he breathed seductively into my ear. His scent surrounded me. My head tilted to the side as my body reclined into his. I could feel his hard-on pressed up against me.
“Saving time and cleaning up after your sorry ass,” I said with a small whimper.
His hands traveled slowly down my arms and teased the hem of my blouse. I gasped softly at his touch, relishing the feel of him close to me.
“All things you love to do,” he whispered in my ear before he clamped his lips around my lobe and sucked gently.
I trembled at the sensation. My core clenched, and desire warmed between my legs.
“Maddy, am I under your skin?”
“Like a tick,” I breathed, fighting the urge to turn around and give in to the feelings overtaking me.
~ MY REVIEW ~
This is a wonderful story! I loved that it was written so that the characters were easy to relate to, not practically perfect like in many romance books. It was very realistic, and I love those kind of stories! Like the first book, it is wonderfully written! I very much recommend it, but I think you definitely need to read the first book, The Do Over, first to really see the changes Rick undergoes!

The Do Over
Life doesn’t look like it’s supposed to for Dani Ruiz, a hopeless romantic. After a painful and sudden break-up with Rick Marin, Dani hides away from reality, retreating to a world of fiction where she prefers book boyfriends over the hassles of a relationship.
Almost two years later, Dani’s friends are tired of watching her in a holding pattern, so they stage an intervention, forcing her back into the real world of dating.
Unexpectedly, Dani meets Liam Lucas, a down-to-earth firefighter. He might be the person to show her she’s still worth something. Dani’s hesitant to trust her heart with another man, but their instant and electric chemistry is something she can’t deny.
As Dani starts to believe that she’s found her real-life book boyfriend, Rick decides that he’ll go to any lengths to get her back. Seeing Rick as a changed man makes Dani question everything.
Can Dani trust her patched-up heart with Liam?
Or has Rick transformed into the man she’s always wanted?
Written from various points of views, The Do Over is a story of second chances and new beginnings.
