A Steamy Single Dad Romantic Comedy
I’ve gotten a do over... And I’m determined not to screw it up.
I’m a tough guy. I’m a whiz with power tools, earned my hard hat and work boots the legit way, and can throw a football spiral that makes pro quarterbacks weep. But when Maddie, the mother of my son, shows up on my doorstep in tears, I have zero defenses. I can’t say no to my kid. Or his mom. Never have been able to.
That’s how I make two big impulsive decisions: giving Maddie a bed to sleep in… and climbing in with her. Now I’ve got my kid and his mom living under my too-small roof, and I can’t put the attraction genie back in the bottle.
I always knew I wasn’t the guy anyone wanted as a dad or a husband, and nothing’s changed in that department. But I can’t deny that this time, something’s different.
I just hope that thing is me.
Misunderstandings cause a couple to part, circumstances force them back together
Jack and Maddie were childhood friends until his family dynamics changed and a rift formed between them. After a breakup, Jack consoles Maddie like he used to when they were kids, until sexual tension enters the equation.
Oops, now there’s a baby on the way. And that’s just the back story.
Present day, Maddie is forced to leave her apartment and moves in (by invitation) with Jack, her son Gabe’s father. Forced proximity, chemistry and sexual tension kick in and Jack and Maddie embark on a no-strings sexual fling until she finds a new apartment. But can they really deny their growing feelings???
Misunderstandings from the past get resolved, but not without a lot of angst before Jack and Maddie get their happy ending.

Do Over by Serena Bell
Re-released March 1st
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (0-5 scale)
Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥 (0-5 scale)
What I’m starry-eyed over:
🤩 “Under One Roof”—close proximity!
🤩 Second-chance at friends-to-lovers and parents-to-lovers
🤩 First person dual POV—my absolute favorite for knowing the MCs inside and out. You will get to know Maddie and Jack so well and watch them be the best version of themselves when they have the support of each other.
🤩 Adorable & realistic interactions they have with their son Gabe bring so much to the story.
🤩 Steam you don’t have to wait for!!! But gets better every time! 😍 🥵 🌶
🤩 Flirting and banter that keeps you smiling.
🤩 Interesting storyline that is emotional at times because of the MCs’ past experiences and trauma. But you will feel that need for them to be together like they were meant to be.
🤩 Cute side characters you get to know a little and I’m guessing show up in the next two books.
What I’m wishing/dizzy about:
💫 Absolutely nothing—read the blurbs in the comments or @serenabellbooks and you will be hooked!
Fun second chance read
This is a fun second chance read. Jack and Maddie went from friends to lovers to parents. Several misunderstandings have plagued their relationship. When Maddie and their son need a place to stay, Jack gets his chance to try again. There are plenty of steamy scenes and some meddling by well meaning friends and of course their son.
