Guest Post + Giveaway: The Do Over by A.L. Zaun

The Do Over 
Life doesn’t look like it’s supposed to for Dani Ruiz, a hopeless romantic. After a painful and sudden break-up with Rick Marin, Dani hides away from reality, retreating to a world of fiction where she prefers book boyfriends over the hassles of a relationship.

Almost two years later, Dani’s friends are tired of watching her in a holding pattern, so they stage an intervention, forcing her back into the real world of dating.

Unexpectedly, Dani meets Liam Lucas, a down-to-earth firefighter. He might be the person to show her she’s still worth something. Dani’s hesitant to trust her heart with another man, but their instant and electric chemistry is something she can’t deny.

As Dani starts to believe that she’s found her real-life book boyfriend, Rick decides that he’ll go to any lengths to get her back. Seeing Rick as a changed man makes Dani question everything.

Can Dani trust her patched-up heart with Liam?
Or has Rick transformed into the man she’s always wanted?

Written from various points of views, The Do Over is a story of second chances and new beginnings

Author’s Favorite Quotes from The Do Over Part 1
By A.L. Zaun

It’s time to move on. You don’t need a book boyfriend. You need a real boyfriend. You need some real sex. I don’t mean to be harsh or anything, but Professor whatever-his-name-is that you picture as Henry Cavill is not real.”

I thought about attending some twelve-step program where I’d introduce myself, “Hi, I’m Dani. I’m a Kindleholic, and I hoard eBooks.”

Zaun: I think that the first two quotes are obvious. =)

Bending over, he leaned in close to my ear. As his unshaven face brushed against my neck, he whispered, “I’m a jealous fool, and I don’t share. Do you mind putting it away?”

Zaun: Sigh, this was Liam's first introduction and I think he melted my heart.

Dani, you had me at standards and then lost me when you mentioned your book boyfriend. Girl, he’s not real.” Macy laughed into her drink. “I feel like I’m Woody telling Buzz that he’s a toy.”

Zaun: True to life.
