Review: The Do-Over by Piper Rayne (Rooftop Crew #5)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the authors via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
The writing duo of Piper Rayne returns to their Rooftop Crew series with their fifth installment, The Do-Over. This is a second chance romance centered on Knox Whelan, a police officer and the guy readers may not know too much about in the eponymous close-knit circle of friends in the series. Now, by "second chance", I don't necessarily mean your typical sort of second opportunity to reconcile with an ex. Piper and Rayne have upped things up a notch because they've offered readers a love triangle of sorts. You see, a few years ago, Knox met Kamea, and then he met Leilani (for the life of me, I can't remember if these two had last names--if they did, please feel free to leave me a note in my comments section, and if they didn't, GAH, because that's a pet peeve of mine). One of them was the sort of girl you took home to meet your parents while the other was the type you took home...wink, wink. Knox chose the latter over the former. Now, all three paths cross once again. Will history repeat itself or will Knox finally get it right this time?
It's always the quiet ones... I seriously liked Knox, and while I could have bopped him over the head for the choice he made years prior to the events that play out in this book, the guy deserves some credit for having learned certain painful lessons. The girl he ends up with was the one I felt he was better suited with, and I guessed right that she was the one he was going to choose to pursue. Now, I don't want to name names because that may spoil the read for anyone who has yet to read the book, and I don't want to authors to come after me or potentially get arrested by Knox for being a spoilsport. What I can say is that I enjoyed Knox's story, and I liked that there was a bit of mystery and suspense thrown into the mix. Both Knox and the girl he shares his happily-ever-after with were highly likable main characters, and the other girl was... Yeah, I was never a fan, which is why I was happy he didn't end up with her. Hehehe. I'm giving four stars to The Do-Over.
