    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.

    Sexy, emotional second chance romance

    Do Over by Serena Bell is a sexy second chance romance for two friends who give into their sexual attraction for a brief affair - that has long term consequences. Jack Parker and Maddie Adams were best friends as kids but drifted apart as young teens for a variety of reasons. Through high school, they were both aware of each other, but ran in different circles. One night at a party and a few drinks led to a brief fling, though Jack was up front that he didn't want a relationship. And when Maddie finds out she's pregnant and brings the news to Jack, he's clear that his feelings haven't changed, though he's willing to take responsibility . Four years later, Maddie and Jack have taken well to co-parenting their son Gabe. Jack gets him every second weekend and with the help of his mom and sister has been a good father if somewhat uninvolved, acting more like an 'uncle' than a Dad. That all changes when Maddie's current relationship dissolves when she catches her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend (double ouch!) and she needs a place to live on short notice. Jack offers to let her and Gabe stay with him while she searches for a place to live. In doing so, the two of them have a chance to reconnect as friends, and then as lovers. But is it enough to make them consider a future together as a real family? I'm a big fan of Serena Bell's books, such that I'm likely to pick up her stories even without reading the blurb. As a result, I didn't actually know what the story was about when I started reading it. But once again she has impressed me with her ability to take an interesting premise and deliver a solid, emotional and steamy romance. Jack and Maddie have a complicated history, and unlike most unexpected pregnancy stories, the fact that Maddie is going to have a baby is not what brings them together. It's five years after the fact, when they've gotten into their routine of being the best separated parents they can be for their son that things take a new turn. Their friendship from childhood is always in the back of their minds but until they are living together they don't delve into why it ended. Jack's father was abusive to him as a child, and the dissolving of his parent's relationship shaped his teenage years and his attitude towards relationships. Maddie is able to coax out of him the truth - that his worries about becoming like his father have kept him from considering a long term relationship. Even the birth of his child has left him a bit wary of taking on the full-time commitment of fatherhood without another relative to come to his aide. Once that shell cracks open, Jack and Maddie are able to move their relationship forward as Jack becomes a full time father figure. There are several steamy scenes between the couple as they rekindle their relationship (though this time, birth control is higher on the priority list). Still Maddie is wary about letting Jack know how much she really cares for him. They both have to admit to some painful truths before they get to their happy ending but it's definitely worth it in the end for them, and their son. There is a sweet epilogue too. I highly recommend this entertaining and unique second chance romance!
