Do Over/Shannon Guymon
"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 was pulled in just reading the prologue. Iris and Trey have sworn off the opposite sex, because all they have dealt with in life is heartbreak. When they meet each other in the frozen food section at their local grocery store, they both have their eyes set for the last chunky monkey ice cream, who will end up with it? Iris has drastically changed her appearance to scare off men, but eventually realizes its doing the opposite. Trey needs help fending off his sister in law who is trying to marry him off. What is left for him to do, then find a fake girlfriend, and Iris just happens to come to mind.
I enjoyed Iris and her spunky nature! She knows what she wants, and goes for it. I also loved Trey's protective nature. These two were meant for each other, even if they didn't realize it at first. All the other characters play some fun roles in connection to either Trey or Iris. Believe me when I say you will be hooked by the first couple paragraphs.
I have a couple books of Shannon's already and this just adds to some great writing. This would be a great Valentines day read. I read it in just 4 hrs and is just under 200 pages. If you need some comedy and romance in your life, get this book!
