Synopsis – 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.
My review –
I think this book was pretty amazing!!!!! One of my favourites of the year for sure, the emotions that I felt in this book, it’s what reading a book is all about!!!!
So, Dani is beautiful and just the sort of girl who a man wants to be with, even if she has an obsession with her Kindle, yes ladies our Dani is all TEAM KINDLE.
So, beautiful Dani is with beautiful Rick, they have had an intense relationship and she is very much in love, they live together and all is well, anyway that’s what Dani thinks, but Rick is shitting a brick, she is perfect on paper but is she perfect for him? It’s all getting too much so when they get into a fight, Rick just says…
Carino, this isn’t working for me,
That’s it; all over.
Two years later and Dani is still in a funk, her best friends have just about had enough with her affair with her Kindle and demand she goes out with them. Dani agrees!!!
She has a CPR class in the day, so she arrives, sits at the back and keeps reading her book (sound like anyone you know) the hot teacher Liam, doesn’t like sharing and makes that perfectly clear. PUT THE KINDLE AWAY HAHA!!! They have a connection and Liam can’t take his eyes off her, but she leaves without him getting her number.
But when the person you’re supposed to be with comes into your life FATE takes control!!!
So that night Dani gets all dressed up and has decided it’s time to get over Rick!! She is ready to mingle as she is in the club, her eyes get drawn to a beautiful blue pair of eyes who happen to belong to Liam (yay!)
Who else happens to be in the club? Rick, o Rick and he sees Dani, but she doesn’t see him, and makes it his mission to get the girl back who he hasn’t been able to get out of his head. You know that saying small world, well yep this book has it.
So we read all about how Liam is totally the perfect boyfriend, the things he does and says are heart stopping beautiful.
I’m yours, all of me is yours. My heart, everything, all of it is yours. I love you Dani Ruiz
Liam is just wow wow wow!
So you can see what is happening. Rick is worming his way in and making Dani think he is the man she wanted him to be.
Heartache happens and I’m shouting at my Kindle WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST DO, I’m crying and I’m praying that all is going to be ok. She has to pick the right man!!!!!! Read the book you will all see if she did!!!! Let’s just say is one of the guys actually running after the wrong lady? xx
Can’t wait for book two. Well done AL Zaun, you rock!!!!!!
