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.
Poignant, hot, and fabulous second chance
Do Over by Serena Bell is one beautifully poignant, hot, and wonderful second-chance story. It’s part of her Under-One-Roof romance series, and all stand alone.
Jack Parker and Maddie Adams were childhood neighbors and friends. They’ve had off-the-charts chemistry forever but Jack’s history has not left him in a good place to commit to a relationship.
Serena Bell’s characters are so well written and it is both completely heartening and wrenching at times to see them be honest and vulnerable and true to themselves and each other.
Maddie and Jack’s path is not exactly straight but it is an incredible journey and one that ultimately leaves me joyfully all smiles.
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.
Second chance, friends to enemies to lovers
Jack is not nearly as messed up from his dad as he thinks he is. He just needs to accept the right woman to lead the way and show him how much love he has to give. Jack and mAddie are life long friends who hooked up 5 years ago when she was home from college for summer break. It gets too emotional for him and he lets her think he has someone else. She finds out she’s pregnant and is keeping the baby. When she gets done with school and moves back close to home, jack “tries” to have a relationship with their child, but mostly let’s his mom and sister take care of young Gabe. Maddie is living with her boyfriend who she walks in on with her best friend. She turns to Jack and the rest is history. He becomes the dad she knew he could be and finds his fitting with his line of work. This was a really good story with a lot of feelings and history to deal with if you’ve liked other Serena Bell books, you will definitely like this one!
