Publisher Description

A marriage proposal gone wrong—a second chance to get it right.

When architect Marley Patterson goes out with Von Ryan, she never expects her practical, cautious life to be turned upside down by the handsome contractor. Von is the definition of fun, until his proposal sends her into a panic. Marriage is too serious a commitment to make after dating for only six months. Even though she cares for Von, they are too different, so she breaks up with him.

Being rejected hurts, but Von blames himself for not reading the signs or Marley better. He finds solace in work; however, his construction company's success isn't enough. He wants to share his life with a woman who'll love him as much as he loves her. She's out there. All he has to do is find her and, this time, be patient for the relationship to develop on its own.

After Marley is assigned to Von's new project in Indigo Bay, he treats her the same as everyone else—professionally and with respect—though neither can deny a strong mutual attraction still exists. Soon Marley realizes she may have been the problem with their relationship, not just Von's proposal. She wants a second chance, but after breaking his heart once, will he give her a do-over?

Second chances only work if the heart is open

This is a well written story about second chances and regrets. It's amazing how we second guess ourselves, especially when someone doesn't fit in the role that we want them to fit into. It means missed opportunities and losing out on our own happiness. If the heart is open, love can grow and move us to wonderful opportunities. This is the lesson Marley had to learn to get her happily ever after.

Sweet second chance story

Marley and Von have a past, one that left him humiliated, heartbroken and alone. So what should he do when she is the one wanting a second chance? Is it worth the possibility of getting his heart broken....again?
This book is part of the Indigo Bay series, but can be read just on its own.
I have read several books by this author and do enjoy her writing.

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

My Heart Was Captured

Some things are worth a second chance on, while others are better fit to stay dormant in the past. I am one of those people that are quick to forgive, and feel like most people miss out on some of the biggest blessings of their lives by not giving second chances. Not so with Von and Marley. Their second (or third?) chance is perfection! It is obvious these two belong together.

The devastating breakup is prevalent throughout the novel, which is understandable considering it went viral, and there were moments I just wanted to reach through the pages and shake Marley. Von is seriously too good to be true! He’s every woman’s dream, which made me feel like everyone else: how did Marley let him get away?! I wanted to root against this woman that broke Von’s heart but, just like Von, I gave her another chance.

Though Von and Marley are opposites in every sense of the word their creative minds and talents are the perfect pairing, like two puzzle pieces that fit together seamlessly, and it was a fun ride seeing the pieces of their broken relationship be put back together again. All of the emotions are in this story and I found myself riding the waves, getting fully vested in these characters.

I have been a fan of Melissa McClone since the first novel I read by her, and with each book I become a bigger and bigger fan. This series is adorable and I love that it features different authors! Sweet Do-Over is a quick, second chance read that captures the heart and the imagination, reminding us all that we all could use a do-over.
