About this ebook

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 McCrory.

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.


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.


And ends with a surprisingly cheesy happily ever after.

I really enjoyed the first three books in this series and since Hastings was present throughout, I went into this book not liking her very much. Unfortunately, Hastings is Hastings. I didn't find her meanness funny in the first three books so I don't really find it funny in hers either. The other thing that really made me struggle with this book was Ian's absence. I never built an investment in their relationship since he wasn't around for about 80% of this book. This was definitely more chick lit than the romance I was expecting.

I’m not really sure what I was expecting out of Hasty’s book. I just knew that I needed to read it because I had so deeply loved the books that came before it. I probably should have, but I certainly never expected the woman we all loved to hate so much in those previous books to be a complex, vulnerable character with hopes and fears I could relate to. I hated the necessity of seeing Hastings brought so low, but she needed something with enough impact to shake her free of her bad attitude and worse behavior. I think it’s both a blessing and a curse to see this story from only Hasting’s viewpoint. I think I got to know her really well, but even at the end of the book, Ian remains a bit of an enigma to me. The one thing I was expecting was the humor, and the author did not disappoint me in any way shape or form on that front. This is probably not a book to read in public unless you’re comfortable with strangers looking at you oddly when you giggle-snort and belly laugh for no reason they can see. I kind of hate that it’s all over now. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

Hooked on Hasty. Never has a book made me happy and sad at the same time. Happy to have read the story and laughed my pants off, but sad, because Hasty is the last of the ‘Do-Over’ series by Julia Kent. I’ve read the previous three books and each was clever, funny and sexy in their own way. Hasty took all that and ramped it up to full speed. I wasn’t sure if I’d like Hastings as she had come off as harsh and a stickler for rules whenever she appeared in Fluffy, Perky and Feisty but here we get to see exactly why she acts like that. I laughed and cried with her as she tried to right all the wrongs that have suddenly beset her. Her arch-nemesis isn’t the man she believed him to be. Ian McCrory is Hastings rival. They are both financial advisors and each chase the same clients. But when Hastings’s world of high living comes tumbling down, it’s Ian, not her absent husband who comes to her rescue. Hastings certainly has a lot on her plate, and needed help to find herself again. I enjoyed watching her become a better, more rounded person. I wish Ian could have played a bigger part in the overall story, but even so, this was a fun read that held my attention and let me forget my woes for a few short hours.
