“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.

4 Star Review:

What do you get when you bring a egotistical man and a hard ass female, a love story waiting to happen.  Madison was a hard ass who didn’t take crap from anyone. She was raised by her grandparents because her parents were too into themselves to parent her.

Rick on the other hand has an ego the size of Texas and he’s a womanizer. He needed Madison to help him get his ex-girlfriend back and his attempt was almost there until he realized that the person he wanted was right in front of him.

Rick followed Madison to New York just so he could let her know how he felt but he didn’t know what he was going to see once he got there. Madison’s family is not the typical family. She didn’t have the relationship that she wanted to have with her father, he brother hated her, and her mother was a bitch and somewhat of a whore. The only person who truly loved her was her grandfather but she was a little confused with him as well.

Rick helped Madison get through a lot of things while on the trip and he staked him claim on her. He defended her to everyone and wouldn’t take anyone disrespecting her, which included his family once they returned.

I am Madison Stuart…that is Madison’s mantra and that’s what got her through her problems, even with dealing with Rick but as their relationship seemed to take steps forward, there was double steps back.
Madison had issues that she needed to get through and a huge one that Rick found out about. Their relationship had bumps and an almost happy medium but there was a power struggle between the two; both couldn’t have control at all times.

A.L. Zaun did a fantastic job on It’s Not Over and I’m so excited to see how everything plays out with both Alpha Male and Alpha Female. I’m curious to see who really wears the pants in the relationship and what their life will hold with the new information presented.
