Blog Tour - It's Not Over by A.L. Zaun

Releases: January 13, 2014
Blog Tour Hosted by: Naughty and Nice Book Blog

“If I let go, will you catch me?”

He had wanted her to help him win his ex-girlfriend back. She had wanted to teach him a few lessons on how to treat a woman. Neither one had planned for the unexpected.

I couldn't stand by and watch. It hit too close to home. I had to run fast and far to get away and forget him. He weaseled his way into my life, making me question rules I lived by and turned my orderly life upside down. I'm falling apart and coming undone. I don't do that. I'm Madison Stuart. I live life by my rules. I won't be derailed by a man. I won't...I can't.

She's gone. I'm desperate and going insane. I'll do whatever it takes to find her. I don't know when it happened, but I won't let her go, not like this. What has she done to me? I'm Rick Marin for crying out loud. I don't chase women, but she's not just a woman. She's Maddy--my Maddy--and I need her.

Follow Rick and Madison’s story, The Do Over’s most notorious couple, as they learn that It’s Not Over.

We hit a little turbulence, and reality set in at thirty thousand feet. I was on an airplane, holding Madison in my arms, on my way to New York City. I looked around, taking everything in, and I caught the flight attendant, sitting across from us, eye-fucking me. She smiled as she lowered her eyes to my dick. I wondered if she was imagining a threesome. What else could she be thinking, gawking at me, while I’m holding another woman? Somehow, I knew that my conclusion would land me in a new category of asshole. Surprisingly though, I wasn’t the least bit interested in even entertaining the fantasy. I want Madison exclusively. 
My heart pounded faster, and my mouth went dry. I hadn’t admitted that to myself or any other living soul. I grabbed the bottled water and drank it in one gulp. I can’t stand her half the time. She drives me crazy. She infuriates me like no one else. But I felt something for her that I couldn’t describe. It was more than wanting to bury my dick in her and fuck her hard…I couldn’t live without her. Fuck, fuck, fuck. 
She shifted against me, sliding her hand inside my jacket. Reclining my head back against the seat, thoughts of her flooded my mind. Somehow, along my quest to win Daniela back, Madison had become my best friend and something more. 

Liam Lucas’s words hit me like a tsunami. Your friend is more than a friend. You don’t go up against your brother over a chick unless she’s under your skin, and if you aren’t sleeping with her, then you’ve got it bad.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Fantastically Sexy Mind-Blowing Stars!

Never in a million years did I ever think I would be Team Rick but lo' and behold the impossible has happened! And I'm loving every minute of his cocky and oh so sexy ways! Throw in the occasional "corazon" and I just melt.

It's Not Over picks up where The Do Over left off. Rick has officially given up on his mission to win Daniela back. He's finally said his goodbyes and he's ready to go after the girl who was right in front of him the whole time. Except she's gone. Madison took off for New York without so much as a goodbye, see ya later or nice to know ya. But Rick, being the charmer (or shmoozer) that he is, has his ways of finding out just about anything. He's able to track Maddy down and doesn't waste anytime in running after her. All the drama and pure sexiness that ensues will have your jaw hitting the floor on more than one occasion!

Watching them go back and forth with each other is like the most cunning game of cat and mouse. I still can't figure out who's the cat and who's the mouse. They both fight to have the upper hand and get the other right where they want them. Their relationship is...interesting, to say the least. It's literally a love/hate kinda deal as they affectionally refer to each other quite often as "asshole" and "bitch". Gotta love the sexual tension that just oozes out of their pores.

Rick is, or was, a womanizer. He's used to sweet talking women to get anything and everything he wants, and they stupidly fall all over him and comply. They literally cannot get their clothes off fast enough when it comes to him. But it seems as though he's learned quite a few lessons in the Madison Stuart School of Castrating Rick. He's whipped. She's basically got him by…the balls…and isn't letting go anytime soon. Nor does he want her to let go, or so it seems.

Madison thinks she's undeserving of love because of her past indiscretions. Everyone around her puts her down and thinks the worst of her. Ever since she was 12 years old she's known exactly what she wanted to do, and that was to take over the family business. She proved herself through many years of hard work and has proof, in the form of a super successful bar, to prove it. Yet she's blindsided by her family as they try to thwart her success and hold her back.

I've really fallen in love with Ms. Zaun's writing style. She effortlessly brings the characters to life with real dialogue and emotions. You'll be laughing one minute, swooning the next and then be angry enough to take on every fool who dares to stand in Maddy's way. As with The Do Over, this second installment in the series packs so much drama and plot twists into the story you'll be sitting on the edge of your seat watching it all unfold. Just don't snack while reading because you might unintentionally end up eating a whole bag of popcorn by yourself…not that I did that or anything, but you know…just a warning.

I would definitely recommend reading The Do Over first because that's where you get the background of Maddy and Rick's relationship and how they came to be where they are at this point in time. Plus Dani's story is one you don't want to miss. Do yourself a favor and add this series to your TBR list NOW!
