BLOG TOUR: It's Not Over by A.L. Zaun

“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.


Before you start on this book I HIGHLY recommend that you read The Do Over before diving into this book. Although you can follow along without having read it...It will make your reading experience that much easier by having done so.

This is the story of Madison and Rick. Rick had used Madison to help get back the girl the he thought was the love of his life. Then he realized he was chasing after the wrong girl. But once he realizes this, it may be too late. What was great about this was Rick's persistence to show Madison that she was the one that he wanted. And it takes a while for Madison to finally let down her guard and start to let Rick in. In the process of all this Madison is trying to fight for her right to be apart of her family's business. Rick is protective and proves himself time and time again. But there are still secrets that Madison hasn't let Rick in on and it could change everything.

This book for me was fast, and a lot of back and forth. I really liked Rick and Madison together, but they are a handful is so many ways. It wasn't an easy read for me, just for the mere fact that there was a lot of information to take in and so I had to slow down and take the time to take it all in. The book is in dual POV which I loved. It is really well written and the book does end in a bit of a cliffy ~ leading into book 3. Great book overall. Four Stars!

Book 1 in the Series

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.
