  • Second chance romances rock!

    Knox Whelan is a police officer of the Cliffton Heights Police Department who is a sucker for women who "needs saving." He has wasted a few years for the "wrong girl" that his career became stagnant. He got passed over from a promotion because of his "savior complex" with fixing his ex-girlfriend. After breaking things off with her and coming out bearly surviving, he made sure that he focused on work and friends only. Unknowing to Knox, he would have his second chance when he arrested a past and bumped into another - all in one place. Kamea works at the country club but is currently on hiatus due to the ongoing renovations until spring. She has a side business that provides good income and some savings on the side. Too bad that someone from her past had other plans and turned her world upside-down. The result was Kamea being: 1. broke, 2. kicked out of her home by said friend's friends, 3. ghosted and bailed by the said friend after loaning the money, and worst of all, 4. saved by someone who she blames for all her insecurities. It has been a while since I was offered a book with two women and a man who did not choose well. I was excited, and the book did not disappoint—the story from the first-person POV narrative - Knox and Kamea. I enjoyed the book's honesty and grit in Knox, failing himself and having to face his mistakes and try his hardest in "fixing" his life - professionally and personally. But when a promotion is on the line, will Knox's choice be convincing enough to Kamea to trust him with her heart after choosing the last time differently? In Knox's head (and heart), Kamea is the woman who got away. He had been riddled with so many "what-ifs" in the book. I got so invested in his "rules" and analytical ways that - I wanted to smack him and tell him, "YES, DO IT!" Everyone else did too! He chose the wrong girl in the past (boohoo) then make things right instead of lingering in the past! Although if Knox did that, it would have cut the book in half and made him an "underdevelop character," --> which is not what this book is all about! Be patient is all I advise. Kamea remembers Knox well enough that it had a lingering effect on how she sees herself. Knox's actions finally shattered her confidence. She had a past that I emphasize. It is full of disappointments with men, especially from one man in particular. This defeatist self-worth has been with her for so long that it may be a reason that she hasn't pushed her small business forward and still look at it as a side business. Knox and Kamea's honesty is evident because, halfway through the book, everything was said and laid out. This element is a big plus for the book! It is refreshing because knowing where both main characters stand is what makes up the story, hence the title. There were no flashbacks about what happened. There were some "thought processing," but instead, each character confessed to the other right there and then. Knox and Kamea told each other the truths with so much conviction and confidence that it made the scenes a lot more compelling. Getting back to the present, I liked how Kamea "opened her eyes" early to become braver and resilient in the face of her situation. She may owe her friend her gratitude in the past, but her friend's attitude and treatment of Kamea was inexcusable. Granted, this friend had her reasons and experience, but she should not treat others this way! I was horrified by her friend's nonchalant attitude while Kamea stood there, panicking and begging out of her situation. She had her chin-up and focus on her business and maybe getting the guy - if she can convince him that they should have a "do-over." I loved her plan and glad that Knox did see the error of his ways - that Kamea is nothing like his ex-girlfriend. She is further and a lot better for him than he could have hoped! Thank goodness for nosy neighbors/friends! I love how they taunted (with love) and supported (feverishly) Knox while taking in Kamea as part of them. Knox's friends all lobbied and shook some senses to both characters. I give them all credit for making the story work! They are responsible for Knox "breaking his rules" and Kamea for taking charge to change things that ended with an explosive (!) HEA for both of them. The Do-Over is all about choices, consequences, growing-up, healing, second chances, and redemption. There is a lot of growing up for all the characters, even the "other woman." Note that there is no cheating involved and is more for Knox being "pressured" by his friends at that time, which was typical. It is well-written and how the author ended the story has thoughtful. I am now curious to start on the Roof Top Crew series based on this book. I hope you do, too, after you check The Do-Over out! Check out the Roof Top Crew series here.

  • Would you take a Do-Over if you could?

    Unexpected but delighted with the turn of events in this wonderful read. I loved every minute of it! Because, well #knoxistheman I have been dying to get my hands on Knox's story since the very beginning, he's the one of the group of friends that is hardly around because of his job as a police officer but once in a while pops up with a girl which none of his friends like. The bomb that was dropped at the end of OUR STAR-CROSSED KISS had me wondering what on earth was going to happen with him because WOW. Have you ever wished you could go back in time and change your decision on something? Well that is what we have here, Knox had a choice between two girls several years ago and now he sees that he didn't make the right choice. So when the opportunity arises that he can possibly get a second chance on the one who he should have picked he's going to take it. Just as Piper and Rayne always do they give a story that is so full of dimension that it's easy to get pulled in and get lost so I would advise you if you need to go anywhere, set an alarm. THE ROOFTOP CREW SERIES follows a group of friends so I would suggest reading the series in the order they have been released, that being said you can definitely read this as a standalone if you wish to do so. Happy Reading!!!

  • The path not taken

    This is the fifth is the Rooftop Crew series that centers around the lives and loves of a groups of twenty-somethings (think friends, but upstate New York instead of Manhattan). Knox met two women several years ago, one was wild, the other was the kind you take home to mom. Of course, being young and coming off a bad relationship, crazy beats nice. Now both women are back in his life and which one will he choose? I love this series overall, I just wish this book were a little longer to build a more believable declaration of undying love. While this can be read as a stand-alone, reading the prior books will give you a better understanding of Knox and the decision he makes. I received an arc of this book from the author for my honest review.

  • A second chance romance with a twist

    Well this dynamic writing duo of Piper Rayne "Knox-ed" this story out of the park! (Sorry that pun just wrote itself!) Just when you think "oh sure, I know exactly where Piper Rayne is going with this story" they smack you upside the head and say hold on! This story is just what the title describes, it's a do-over! And I am not going to go into specifics and ruin the story for you but I will say, I was totally hooked from the first paragraph and I was sad to see this story end. I loved the evolution of Knox, he wants to believe he knows what love is, but he is so off course it's sad.  The heroine in this story, I so empathized with her plight and the insecurities she faced. You get to see the whole rooftop crew and you see them all come together to make Knox's gal feel welcome and to help Knox navigate through his indecisions and give him the wake up call that he needs! Like I have said before, I get such a "Friends" vibe from this series, and I absolutely love it! Way to go ladies!! Well done!

  • #KnoxIsTheMan

    Wow, wow, wow, I didn't see that coming and not at all what I expected but exactly the way it needed to be! I have been waiting for Knox's story and his definitely wasn't without complications and jaw-dropping moments but so worth the wait! If you've read any of Piper Rayne's books you know every once in awhile they love to throw a wrench in the story your expecting and this is one of those stories. Prepare to be blown away because this story will do just that but in the best way possible. I loved this story and do excited for the next book in this series!
