Paperback: 185 pages
Who wouldn't be tired of dating after falling for the wrong woman over and over again? Trey has decided to take a much-needed break from the fairer sex, until Iris tumbles into his life. Their romance will either be a disaster waiting to happen or the best fairy tale since Sleeping Beauty.
I liked Iris instantly. Especially when she moves to Alpine, changes her clothes, hair, and life. I admit I was nervous about a few things, that she would regret some choices later, but I didn't know Iris. She is a fantastic character. I especially liked it when she met Trey. Their first scene together was very funny and flirty. I loved it when Iris came home from their first meeting with the surprise that started it all. When they meet up again, I loved the idea of the "fake girlfriend/boyfriend" and hoped that it would lead to more. I was more than pleased with the end result of the book and enjoyed the ride. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all sunshine and roses. I enjoyed that it took work. Once Trey and Iris decided to be together there was no stopping them.
4 out of 5 stars. Shannon has written a clean, fun book with humor, lessons and lots of romance. I can't wait to read more from her. Do Over has also been nominated for a 2013 Whitney Award. Shannon also writes fantasy under the pseudonym Katie Lee O'Guinn. I will be reviewing her Taming the Wolf series soon. As well as her Love & Dessert trilogy in her own name.
