3.5 Stars

After a bad break up years ago, Knox Whelan met the girl of his dreams… and the absolutely wrong woman for him at that moment in his life. So, as he faced the decision of pursuing the type of girl you take home to your parents, or finding a girl who was fun for one night only, Knox went with his gut… and has regretted that decision ever since…


The Do-Over was an angsty and sweet, second chance romance. Knox has finally committed to cutting all ties with his toxic ex-girlfriend. But, as luck would have it, she brings him back into the presence of the girl he should have taken a chance on, all those years ago…

Kamea was your typical, all-around delightful, nice girl. And while she is currently down on her luck due to the antics of her old friend, Leilani, Kamea has a plan to pull herself back up, and the wherewithal to execute it. But when Knox finds her at her worst, he takes it upon himself to provide her with the help she is too stubborn to ask for…

Knox is a police officer who likes to do the right thing in all aspects of his life. After letting his ex-girlfriend rule his life for far too long, Knox has decided it is time to move on. But, the woman he wants to be able to date still seems like an impossible jump after his last relationship drama… fortunately for him, Kamea might have something to say about all that…

This was a fun read with an interesting and engaging plot. I adore so much about The Rooftop Crew series, but most especially I can’t get enough of this supportive and genuine group of friends. After oh-so-patiently waiting for Knox, the “sexy cop” book, I was pleasantly surprised at who the heroine actually didn’t end up being! Kamea was a sweet and unassuming woman who always tends to keep to herself and do everything she can to make he own way in life, and she was a perfect addition to Knox’s upstanding way of life.

I really enjoyed this book, but I did feel like there was way too much mention of Kamea being Polynesian… and that she and Leilani could be sisters. I felt like it devalued what Kamea brought to the story, and made Knox’s attraction to her seem superficial, no matter how many times HE mentioned that she didn’t look like Leilani much at all. Also, I always want a little spice from a sexy cop, and I thought Knox was going to be the man to bring it… and he just… didn’t.

In the end, I really liked the pairing between Knox and Kamea, and felt they brought a lot to The Rooftop Crew ensemble.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
