    Loved it!

    Loved this one! Great storyline and a very well written book. Maddie and Jack are amazing characters and I loved their relationship right from the beginning. Their romance is a nice slow build and I couldn't help but cheer for them. Five years ago Maddie and Jack had an incredible time together. Nine months later they are facing raising a son and remaining friends. Jack's not a family man. Or at least he wasn't. Now things seem to be changing. Especially when Maddie and their son Gabe move in with him after Maddie finds herself homeless thanks to her cheating boyfriend. I highly recommend this one to everyone!

    Engaging

    This is the first book I have read by Serena Bell and after reading it, I plan on reading more of her books. The description sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a try and I am glad I did because I loved this story. It kept me engaged from beginning to end and I immediately connected with the characters. This is a second chance romance, which is one of my favorite troupes. The characters are real, vulnerable, good together and have amazing sexual chemistry. Jack and Maddy have known each other their entire lives. As children, they are best friends but as they become teenagers, they go in different directions. Jack is a bad boy, getting into trouble and womanizing and Maddy is a good girl, always studying and doing what is right. When they are in their early twenties, they have a one night stand, which leads to an unplanned pregnancy causing Jack and Maddy to be linked together forever. Jack has little to do with their son Gabe until he is four years old. That is where the story begins and it periodically goes back in time to give the reader Jack and Maddy's background story. Sometimes, I don’t like the back and forth of going from the past to present, but Serena Bell does a good job. I really enjoyed watching these two characters develop over time, especially Jack; he has a lot of growing up do to. Jack is a good guy who doesn’t think he is good enough. He is stuck in a never ending string of one night stands, because he doesn’t want to be tied down. Jack is a lovable guy. He is a typical guy who only thinks about sports, women, beer and hanging with the guys. Maddy is the responsible one. I devoured every word of this mesmerizing, emotional story.

    Love a good Do Over

    Do Over is a second chance romance if you couldn't figure that out by the title, but if you like happy endings and cute kids thrown in for a family feel then you need to check this one out. Jack and Maddie are meant to be together, but of course they will have some bumps in the path before they find their HEA.

    It's never too late to step up and find love

    Jack and Maddie were childhood friends, and slept together once 5 yrs before the story opens. Maddie got pregnant, but Jack was too immature at the time to want to be a father. He also had lingering scars from his abusive father and felt he'd be a bad one. He supports his son, gets him once every other weekend (his mom and sis take care of the boy mostly), and he continues to go out and be a happy go-lucky guy with no responsibility. Then Maddie discovers her BF is cheating with her best friend and she needs a place to stay so he offers to let her move in. Slowly, he comes to realize that it's time to grow up and that he loves her and wants to be with her. This was a sweet redemption story. It's true that when the story opened, Jack wasn't much of a hero. He'd always supported his son financially, but emotionally, he was pretty much shirking his responsibilities. I liked that the author wrote a story in which he slowly becomes aware of this and of how he'd been coasting in the past and finally needed to step up to the plate and become a man that could be depended on. I think the message of the story was a good one, that it's never too late to change and mature.
