Title: It’s Not Over (The Do Over #2)
Author: A.L. Zaun
Genre: Adult/Contemporary Romance
“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.

In It’s Not Over, we meet Madison who was raised by her grandparents. Her grandfather is a very successful restauranteur and she is following in his foot steps, by managing one of the bars. Madison has a promiscuous history but slept with guys as a means to forget and not feel pain. In walks Rick, who she meets at the bar. He is one arrogant asshole! Madison tells him she’s going to help him get the girl he’s being pining away for. All Rick and Madison know how to do is sleep with other people without any attachments.
Will Rick and Madison be able to make a relationship work with all these obstacles in their way? I absolutely loved the constant banter between Madison and Rick; they were sarcastic and super funny. You should probably read The Do Over first; otherwise you will not be familiar with certain situations and references in Book #2. These characters have a lot of chemistry and they both do have redeeming qualities! I liked their family relationships. From the conclusion, it seems we will definitely see more of Rick and Madison.
