I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the THE DO-OVER by Lynn Painter Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Young adult romance fans pay attention because this is a fun one!

Lynn Painter’s The Do-Over follows a girl name Emilie who is forced to relive Valentine’s Day – and all the life ruining or altering moments – that come with this particular holiday. A cheating boyfriend, disastrous events, and more seem to come one after another as Emilie tries to avert some of the chaos.

Incredibly fun, well written, and obviously full of fun romantic hijinx, The Do-Over is a great choice for young adult romance fans or those breaking into the genre (like me). Definitely recommended! It’ll be a particularly great choice once we hit the Valentine’s Day holiday season in a couple of months and a great gift if you’re like me and like to give your kids books/presents for Valentine’s Day.

Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

In this riotous young adult romp for fans of Recommended for You and A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow, a teen girl has the worst Valentine’s Day ever—only to relive it over and over again.

After living through a dumpster fire of a Valentine’s Day, Emilie Hornby escapes to her grandmother’s house for some comfort and a consolation pint of Ben & Jerry’s. She passes out on the couch, but when she wakes up, she’s back home in her own bed—and it’s Valentine’s Day all over again. And the next day? Another nightmare V-Day.

Emilie is stuck in some sort of time loop nightmare that she can’t wake up from as she re-watches her boyfriend, Josh, cheat on her day after day. In addition to Josh’s recurring infidelity, Emilie can’t get away from the enigmatic Nick, who she keeps running into—sometimes literally—in unfortunate ways.

How many days can one girl passively watch her life go up in flames? And when something good starts to come out of these terrible days, what happens when the universe stops doling out do-overs?


“Painter plucks readers’ every heartstring, from writing a sweet love story between two teens with very different views on romance to honestly depicting how Emilie’s parents’ messy divorce has impacted her feelings of self-worth. Italicized confessions at the beginnings of various chapters prove there is a playful side to Emilie that is further brought out by Nick, whose constant teasing leads to flirty banter…unequivocally hilarious and delightful.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Throughout, Emilie struggles to navigate her parents’ acrimonious divorce, and the resulting financial precarity and blow to her self-worth. By combining these personal trials with a lighthearted love story, Painter delivers a thoughtfully elevated romantic jaunt.” — Publishers Weekly
