**BT & Giveaway** The Do-Over ~ MK Schiller

The Do-Over

MK Schiller


Arrogant womanizer Kyle Manchester hates blind dates, however, when best friend, Brad calls in a favor, insisting Kyle take out his girlfriend’s sister, Kyle reluctantly agrees. Attorney Lanie Carmichael’s appearance is no surprise. She is dowdy, awkward, and dressed in so many layers she resembles a wedding cake, but not in an edible way. Her brazen attitude though, astonishes him, especially when she explains she has no interest in gorgeous Kyle. Lanie Carmichael is in love with Brad, and wants Kyle’s assistance in winning his best friend’s heart.

Kyle gradually accepts, justifying that the mystery of Lanie has sparked his natural, thirsty curiosity. As an ambitious journalist, he also can’t resist the Pulitzer worthy scoop she offers him. However, as Lanie sheds more layers, both emotionally and physically, Kyle begins to examine his life choices, and his true feelings for this enigmatic girl. With Kyle’s support, Lanie begins to unravel the secrets of her past, and the deep pain that has quietly defined her life. As they each learn more about themselves and each other, both question how a relationship built on fraudulent lies between two broken people could ever survive.

About the Author:

This is my debut novel, and I’m thrilled to share it with you. I describe myself as a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. By day, I don a magic cape, calculator (sometimes an abacus), and an assortment of gel pens for my work in the world of finance. But by night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, and think of stories that will warm the heart, and cheer the soul.

There is nothing better than the intimate journey and ultimate satisfaction that only a swoon-worthy romance can provide, especially if there are a few laughs along the way. Although writing is my passion, I am a reader first and enjoy nothing more than curling up with a good book and some tasty Italian (the food, of course!). I hope you will enjoy my work and please drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.

“This was a sweet, sexy and fun read, totally unexpected. Marley and Rick's chemistry was off the charts HOT!” 

Amy's Thoughts~

Kyle Manchester is the epitome of the player. Everywhere he goes women fall at his feet. At the push of his friend Brad, he takes Lanie on a date. And she is atrocious. But at the same time, she's a breath of fresh air, because she isn't falling over all over him. She doesn't want him, so he can be his sarcastic, asshat self with her. The great thing is, is that she's sarcastic and witty right back.

Lania knows she's not pretty. She knows she will never be a '10', but she's giving it a try to win the guy anyway. She enlists Kyle to help her accomplish it. But then things start to change.....

Or Kyle does...

Not only was this book Laugh-out-Loud funny, it has very serious undertones to it. I did kinda feel like it was a bit anti-climatic. But, one good thing about not having a big crazy climax was that it turned into a nice change of pace for me. And I needed that.

Another huge plus was that we got the entire story from Kyle's POV. That gave me insight to Kyle, and I loved it!! The inner-workings of a man's brain!!

Overall a sweet, sexy read tha thad me bursting with laughter and my 8 year old kept asking me if I was crazy! Definitely one I'll read again and again.
