AN ALL-NEW STANDALONE FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIA KENT
I never thought my perp walk would lead to true love.
Then again, I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.
And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McRory.
I am broke.
I am disgraced.
I am alone.
I am a sucker.
But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.
Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.
Just when I needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.
He can’t bring back my money.
He certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.
But there’s one thing he can bring back to me.
A sense of hope.
Maybe even love.
Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.
But I have to be careful.
I can’t be too —
That’s right.
Hasty.
The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory’s sister, Hastings “Hasty” Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.
Hers.

Excerpt

Ian keeps chasing me, though. Why? And why does the fact that he won’t let up thrill me?
That’s the part I hate. The thrill. The zing of arousal that shoots through me every time that jerkface–who isn’t a jerk–does this. He’s pursuing me and I don’t understand it, but I do like it.
More than I want to admit.
The fight inside me feels like layers of muscles in my abs are in a tug-of-war. Ian McCrory represents everything I fought to achieve in my old life. Self-made billionaire. Liked by everyone. Admired by even more.
Respected for his hardcore negotiating skills.
And droolingly handsome.
He was my nemesis. My enemy. The guy who sniped deals, and who I sniped from. We were adversaries, but he flipped the script, didn’t he? Coming to my rescue. Aiding me in a time of need.
I don’t want to need him.
And I especially don’t need to want him.
I stare at the phone. Just as my finger goes to the Power button to turn it off again, three dots appear.
One dinner. Indulge me?
I go into my contacts, and I block him.
He just proved me right.
Taking help from people means you’re obligated.
And no matter how sweet the currency he’s dangling, I don’t like owing him.
I don’t like owing anyone.
Burke turned my entire life into one big debt.
But my body isn’t available as collateral.
And neither is my heart.

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. ***

I guess I have a sweet spot for Hasty and her story didn’t disappoint.

Hastings  “Hasty” Monahan would learn in a hard way how it felt like to lose everything and to hit rock bottom. From everything to nothing, this “villain” heroine who didn’t give a damn about people and not tongue-tied. I was so excited to read it because I could sense that she has  an interesting story to share.

After the explosive ending, Hasty handcuffed and humiliated to the world, thanks to her con of a husband, she had to start all over.

As much as I appreciated the other books, this “Do-Over” was definitely my favorite.

After her arrest, she had to go back to her parents, in that small town she so wanted to escape. Let just say that she wasn’t very nice to people but still her family supported her. Her family antics made me smile so hard. Colorful and hilarious with no filter. Her life would have been easier if her biggest rival, Ian McRory wasn’t chasing her. Persistent and showing that she can find her way back, no matter her past or scandal. Making her feel a little too much and who could see right through her. Ian… swoon, swoon, swoon!!!

Watching Hasty raising from this scandal and taking her life over was worth the read. This was a character I loved to hate. I so appreciated that journey where she discovered herself and found her own way, opening-up to people but staying herself. Coming back to town straightened her bonds with her family but also with the community. For once, she could count on people who would watch her back and be supportive.

It was such a delightful read filled with laughter, a heroine who has finally found her way, a strong hint of sarcasm, crazy family and friends. Julia Kent has written a marvelous romantic comedy when you could find your perfect match in unexpected ways. The narrative was full of rhythm and detailing the ups and downs of Hasty’s journey, but mostly her happily ever after!
