I was so looking forward to this book and TL Swan didn't disappoint.  I love the love stories that Swan creates and her writing style.  If you like a little steam in your romance, this is a great choice for you.....it's perfection!!

Oh Ms. Swan. Le sigh. This series is in my top 5 of all time. I am a reader that often gets bored of a series and I am thrilled to report (amongst the many) that The Do-Over is another banger. I know I'm asking a lot, but can we please just forget all other books in the works and continue this series indefinitely?! If TL Swan isn't a one click author for you like she is me, allow me to suggest! F I V E S T A R S

I have absolutely loved this series and this final instalment did not disappoint, it was great getting to know these characters and seeing how this story ended, a perfect mix of spice and storyline!

T L Swan, are you sure there is not a fifth brother hiding around? I am going to miss the Miles Brothers and hope I'll get the chance to see glimpses of them in any upcoming books. 

Christopher got straight to my heart. Bad boy rep with the tenderest heart there ever was. I truly enjoyed this one!

I do usually enjoy the emotional progressions of the characters in the Miles High series. However sometimes the characters are made so unlikeable to me at the beginning of the book that I can't ever truly emotionally invest in the love story. Christopher was very sex obsessed and the way he spoke about sex and women was a bit upsetting to me. He also continuously made it known that sex was a priority to him over most things in life and  even while his relationship with Hayden was developing, there were instances of him nearly being intimate with previous partners. I did enjoy the emotional build up and development of their relationship but I ultimately felt that Hayden put up with and sacrificed too much for the relationship. It was one of those books where I would never believe these characters to last in the real world at all.

I liked other books in the series and this was definitely spicy, but emotionally it was a tough read for me!

I was introduced to T. L Swan recently and instantly became a huge fan with plans to read her entire back list. Some aspects of this book I found frustrating, as I tend to do with the heroines in this series, however the angst and romance made it worth it. 

The spice is absolutely fantastic and surprisingly the resolution was a bit emotional. Great payoff and wonderful read.

Loved The Do-Over! Christopher definitely started off as a jerk/player but I think he fully redeemed himself by the end. The last 20-30% of the book was my favorite. I loved Hayden as a character and how she developed throughout the book. This series is one of my favorites and I'm truly so sad it's over.

I, unfortunately, had a hard time getting into this book. I loved the other books in this series, but for some reason I just couldn't care about the main male character. I will not be posting my review publicly because I don't feel like it represents the book. My inability to connect with the book isn't a true reflection of the book itself.

As much as i devoured this incredible story i wanted to savour it, every word, every scene and moment , every feeling, i did not want it to end. Christopher Miles Consumed me. 
The last Miles brother and once again Tee proves and shows us just why these Miles brothers are many readers faves and why she’s one of my favourite and unicorn author. Each one of them are special and unique in their own way … every time you read one of them you can’t see it getting any better despite even having your own favourite, i do too but Let me tell you Christopher Miles is something else… i have fallen hard for him… The Do Over blew me away

The story is absolutely hilarious, i mean full on belly laughing! Christopher is so witty and straight talking, let alone beyond hot! 

His friendship first with Hayden is a breath of fresh air. They have such a deep connection and a constant buzz of sexual chemistry, tension fills the air. Together they perfect, full on fun and banter but also deeply caring. 

When your least expecting it, the emotion sucker punching you, cuts you deep and one minute your laughing the next there’s a lump in your throat and the tears fall. 

TL Swan just gets better and better and once again she delivers another incredible story that without a doubt one of my top reads of 2022 and i already want to re read!

Christopher Miles has everything he could ever want. He's rich, successful, is close to his brothers, and can pull any woman he wants. Despite having it all, he feels empty and unfulfilled. Christopher decides to take a year off of his life to backpack through Europe and discover who he is. The trip starts out rocky, but in a hostel in Barcelona, Christopher meets his new roommate, Hayden, and they become friends. She's not usually the type he goes for, but she might just be everything he didn't know he was looking for.

I enjoyed this book, and although it's bittersweet to see this series end, I'm happy with where every couple is. I loved the approach TL took with Christopher and Hayden becoming friends first. They are best friends at their core first, which I love. It was so sweet watching them fall in love and it's clear they're so in love with one another. 

Christopher is a complicated and frustrating character at times. I found myself irritated with him because he would get so close to changing and then take a step back. I did love that after being told he was lacking emotional intelligence he started reading about it and making changes to improve. He was able to be a better friend and partner. I will say I loved how obsessed Christopher was with Hayden. He kept calling her "my girl" or "my Hayden" and never stopped thinking about her. I wish he wouldn't have freaked out on her when she found out who he was, but I also understood he was worried she would leave and didn't know how to process that. He was so sweet with Eddie and I can't wait to see them in the extended epilogue.

I enjoyed this as an ending, but I will say I'm slightly disappointed that it wasn't a 5 star for me. Parts of it were confusing or written weird. It didn't feel like a Miles High Club book until about 60% or so, which surprised me. I wish Christopher hadn't been written like a child at times (stomping around, screaming, etc.) I get what TL was trying to show but there were other ways to show that. Overall, I did enjoy this, but after Ferrara (part of another series) came out in February and blew everyone away, I was anticipating a bit more. I am excited for the epilogue and it will be so hard to say goodbye to everyone.

Thank you to TL Swan and Foreword PR for the early copy in exchange for an honest review!

This book features the youngest Miles brother Christopher and a small town farm girl Hayden. The saying opposites attract is the definition of this book.

Christopher is a temperamental hothead and Hayden is a patient, kind hearted soul.
I have never experienced so many emotions especially within the last 20% of the book. I cackled, I sobbed, I even had to re-read a couple scenes if you know what mean (=
I loved that these two got to have a much deeper connection because even though they arrived in Europe alone they still travels together not just as friends but roommates. also loved that there were found friendships through the people that they were staying with from day one.
There were cameos from the Mr. Series, which l'm going to have to go back and reread because after finishing mister Masters and Mr. Spencer I have a better idea of who they are.

there are so many scenes that I still replay in my head till this day.
- First night in the hostel (both povs)
- Eddie 
- every cuddle session
- THE WHITE DRESS
- Night Swimming
- BumF*ck Nowhere Farm 

IYKYK

To think this is the last time I was going to see these brothers. I cannot wait for the extended epilogue, Miles Ever After!

Thank you @forewordpr and @tlswanauthor for gifting me this arc for my honest review

T.L. Swan never disappoints me. This book beyond amazing. The characters chemistry was off the charts. The spice was phenomenal & hot ASF. It wasn't my favorite book in the series, but I overall had a fun time reading.

Y’all, can I just say that any man that T. L. Swan writes can GET IT! Lord have mercy! This book was incredible, which was no surprise because this series is one of my favorites!

Reading The Do-Over was nonstop laughs, At one point I had to read it out loud to my husband because he was giving me weird looks. I couldn’t help but laugh at the way Swan would describe whatever Christopher was thinking or the things that flew out of his mouth once he hit that hostel. It was THE best reading material a girl could ever hope for. Swan took this book to a whole new level by turning a billionaire playboy Miles brother into a swoon worthy delicious man who definitely needs and gets his happily ever after. Now I totally get the whole Rachel and Ross Friends episode about backpacking thru Europe 🤣.  You won’t be able to set this book down, it’s that good.  In this sexy installment of the Miles High Club series from bestselling author T L Swan, a billionaire playboy goes incognito on a backpacking trip in Europe. But how long can he hide from love?

Loving this series…..I enjoyed this book! Christopher and Hayden were a fantastic couple and I loved their relationship. Christopher is right up there with Tristan for me. I had some good laugh out loud moments when he visited her family! This book gave me butterflies while reading and it felt like I was experiencing all the feels along with Hayden and Christopher. Definitely a must read if you like the Miles brothers!!!

I liked Jameson's book, Tristan is THE MAN literally his book has my heart, i HATED Elliot's book like what even was that. I had really really high hopes from Christopher because I got the feeling he was most like Tristan of all the brothers, but alas, this book was.. meh. like i simply did not give an eff about anyone the whole time. sigh

So... I was battling with myself if I even should write a review for this book, or just move on to the next on my TBR and forget about this mess.

But I feel like I should say something, considering that I've been with this series for so long.

Christopher Miles was even worst than Jameson Miles, and that's something that I never saw coming!
He's a selfish playboy, a liar, and a poor perfectionist rich boy, who can't stand failure, so he just avoid commitment at all!

The beginning was so OTT and immature, full of "let's just get drunk and have fun", with ridiculous situations that even in a book, sounded forced!

He's awful to everyone, even when he apparently likes them. I'm still trying to understand why people liked him.... I guess even in books, people are superficial like that.

The female character (that I already forgot her name) was a doormat. There's not another explanation for her to be cuddling with him every night, knowing that he was just back from his threesome with random girls!
"Ohhhh but they weren't together", you'll say... Yeah... But he was already pursuing her, and when she said no, he was out to find a willing hole, cause the poor thing couldn't be a week without s3x! 🙄🙄

He lied to her for 12 months, and then accept his lies after one argument?
No ma'am... Have some self respect!

There's no groveling!
Even in the end, it's her saying I'm sorry for leave, and wanting to change her life for him... AGAIN!
Him taking his brother's house in the country side of London, ain't a big gesture at all!

One start just for the plot around Eduardo... I loved that kid! 
And another for the audiobook quality (this last one was the reason that I even finished).

I guess Tristan is and always will be my favorite brother, and that's it!

Will I still read this author?
Absolutely... She can do better!

Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. I think I found my favorite Miles brother & at this point I'm convinced that TL Swan writes nothing but masterpieces.

Oh wow. I really did not love Christopher’s book and almost wish I didn’t request the ARC. This felt forced and out of the norm for TL Swan.

I am a massive fan of the Miles high club series, I bought the books and and I would reread the other three in a heartbeat but sadly this one was  disappointing due to Christopher’s aggressive and childish behaviour and how weak Hayden was at times. 

Christopher was certainly the most arrogant brother and the friends to lovers, reformed playboy finding himself whilst travelling plot just didn’t really work in places as it didn’t leave a lot of room for tension between the couple in the build up. 

Some of the jokes and scenes were so over the top I was cringing. The whole scene dedicated to him going mental over a woman’s body hair choice? Seriously misogynistic much Christopher? 

I don’t feel like was the same Christopher we saw in the rest of the series at all! 

I did as always love the banter with the other brothers, the scenes with them all together both in the start and towards the end of the book made me laugh and smile so hard. Getting glimpses into the other brothers with their now wives and kids following their books was also a lovely touch.

I also really enjoyed the cameos from her 'Mr series'

Looking forward to reading the extended epilogues out in February for the brothers as they will always hold a special place in my book world. Tristan will always be my number 1! 

Thank you to Net Galley & Montlake for this Arc for an honest review.
