Blog Tour: The Do Over, A.L. Zaun

Reading Level:Contemporary Romance/New Adult


Ebook (ARC)


Self Pubbed 5/20/2013



THE DO OVER is a contemporary romance by debut author A.L.Zaun. Dani is a 28 year old nurse who hasn't been particularly lucky in love. The one guy she was living with decides that he's had enough and in probably the most cold way possible, breaks up with her.

Flash Forward two years later, Dani is single, miserable and addicted to her Kindle and her 'book' boyfriends (been there, done that with WINE!).

THE DO OVER is told in three different point of views. Dani's, Liam's and Rick's. Every voice is different and fresh. I loved the story line because it wasn't your typical triangle. Rick is the one who dumps Dani. However, when Dani meets Liam (a firefighter), they are combustible.

The love story between Dani and Liam is sweet, exciting, hot and romantic. Although sometimes, I think Rick tries to steal the story away. Ana's secondary characters are well written and defined, there is not one thing missing. From Dani's friends, Liam's friends and of course, Rick's conniving ways. I may secretly love Rick. Oh, don't get me wrong, I love, love, love Liam... He's the perfect guy. But Rick is so full of himself and thinks he's God's gift to women, you either hate him or love him. I tend to go both ways with him. Read book, and you'll understand.

Ana has written a brilliant story of finding love, moving on and finding exactly who you are after a dark period in our life. I was enthralled with the writing which is luscious and gorgeous. Every word is carefully thought out. Her characters shine.

In a world where books are getting smaller, this is 492 pages of quiet brilliance. I very rarely give five stars, the book has to blow me away for me to do so. The quiet intensity and the reaching crescendo of the ending pushed me over the edge. I wonderful love story. A small mystery and many hours of smiles await you when you read THE DO OVER.

Remember, this is not a triangle. It's a love story where one person whose time has passed tries to ingratiate himself into said love story. But we have fun watching him try at every turn.


Book Description

Life doesn't look like it's supposed to for Daniela, aka Dani. After a painful break-up with Rick, Dani decides she doesn't want to deal with the hassles of relationship.

After almost two years, Dani's friends stage an intervention, forcing her out of her holding pattern and back into the real world of dating.

Liam, a down to earth firefighter, may be just the person to show her she’s still worth something. Their chemistry is instant and electric. But will Dani be able to trust her patched-up heart with him?

And what will happen when Rick decides he’ll go to any lengths to get her back?
