It's Not Over Front Cover
I was given an Arc in exhange for an Honest Review.
I just want to say I enjoyed book two more then book one. During book one I struggled a little bit to finish it. In book two i found myself wanting to keep reading.
Book two picks up not long after where we were left in book one.
The plot was more enjoyable in this book. It flowed better and was more imaginable in my mind. The characters were very well written in this book also.
Aboout the main characters:
Rick Marin is an arrogant asshole. But he is the type of asshole that draws you in. That makes you love him. And while Madison is still a bitch in book two you learn to love her as well.
While reading this book it was much like book one. I found myself getting frustrated at decisions that were made and things that happened. But at the same time I also found myself rooting for Rick, which was shocking since I couldn't stand him in book one.
All in all I enjoyed book two much better then book one. I can honestly say I can't wait for book three. I am hoping this is a theme since they seem to keep getting better.

AL Zaun Pic
A.L. Zaun graduated from Florida International University with a degree in English Literature when the dinosaurs roamed the earth and cellphones were the size of a brick. Her impressive degree did absolutely nothing for her professional endeavors in health care management but did stir her imagination and opened up the world of books in a new way.
Armed with a large bottle of Diet Pepsi and a multi-pack of Extra Sugar-Free gum, A.L. Zaun spends her evenings bringing to life the characters that dominate her thoughts and interrupt her sleep.

I was given this book in exchange for an HONEST review. (I was given the opportunity to review book two so obviously I had to start with book one)
I would give The Do Ove 3.5 stars.
Let me just start out by saying I thought the book was good. It just wasn't great. The plot was good, however I found myself thinking it was pretty predictable in some instances. 
Dani and Liams lovey doveyness made me want to puke. I felt the author wrote if over the line. Took it a little too far when much less of it would of worked out much better.
I did really enjoy the multiple POV. I love when a book is written with more then one point of view. And in this book you basically get a triple point of view.
I also usually am not into love triangles. These types of books make me want to smack one of the characters. While in this book it wasn't as bad and each character was their own person I still had moments where I could choke someone.
All in all the book was a good read.
