Entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable. Perhaps not the best written book ever, but something that is fun to relax with. I like Maya's realness and enjoy following her journey to know God better. My only complaint is that it feels like there should be another book...I kinda felt like I was left hanging, to be honest.

WOWWW!! This ending was so perfect but so heartbreaking!! This was so realistic. Life doesn’t always have happy endings.
What do I think about these books? Good question.
The last review I did on an Erynn Mangum (Miss Match) was pretty much a review of the entire series, so this also will be a review of the entire series. :) I know I am not really consistent because I posted my review for the entire series on the Miss Match page (the first book in the series Lauren Holbrook), and now I am posting my review for the entire series of Maya Davis on Double Shot (the last book in the series).

Can coffee and chocolate make everything better?
It’s worth a shot.

Now that Maya Davis is engaged to her longtime friend and sweetheart, Jack, there should be no more worrying about the future, no more questioning God. Everything should be perfect, right? Actually, it’s just the opposite: Things are complicated. Where are they going to live? What kind of wedding do they want?

I tried to like this book. I really did. In my opinion, it was better than 'Latte Daze' that preceeded it, but, not by much. Yes, I gave that title 1 star, too.

I feel like a broken record because my complaints with 'Double Shot' are pretty much identical to that of 'Latte Daze'. I found the wedding planning storyline completely implausible (I just got through planning an August wedding and couldn't believe how fake and trite the whole storyline felt) and pretty much pushed to the backburner.

These books are great. They're the kind of books where, I'll sit down and before I know it more than an hour and 100 pages have passed. I can hear the characters talking, like I'm right there. They really draw you in. This end to the Maya Davis series didn't disappoint! Cute, funny, and pure- a refreshing change of pace from so many books out there.

It is very refreshing to read a romance book that is not laden with sex, cursing, lewd behavior, etc. Erynn does a great job of interlacing Scripture into the book without it being preachy. This should be used in church youth groups to give teenage girls a moral picture of dating.

This was the 6th book (I read another series) of Erynn Mangums. The first two books in the series were a quick read. I breezed through them. This one seemed to take me FOREVER! I just couldn't bring myself to want to sit down and finish it. I did though b/c I wanted to know what happened. I have to say that Maya kinda got on my nerves. The first two books in the series were okay, but by this third book in the series, I was quite annoyed by her and her negativity. She didn't seem to really be in ...more

This book was as enjoyable as the first two, but I didn't like the way Erynn ended it. She really left us hanging with a lot of unanswered questions. Is there going to be a number 4 perchance? I certainly hope so because I would really like the answers to some of those questions. Will Jack get the job? Will they move to Seattle? Why did Jen look sad when she told Maya to hold onto Jack? (There seems to be more to that story!) Will they stay in Hudson and, if so, will Maya hold onto her promotion ...more

I now officially adore Erynn Mangum. I had thought that she couldn’t get much better than the Lauren Holbrook series, which was completely amazing (My review). However, apparently Erynn is just stock full of hilarious characters and great story lines that resonate with normal people like me.

This last installment of the Maya Davis series tied the trilogy up wonderfully. Maya experiences a lot of change in her life, and it’s both funny and enlightening to watch as she learns, grows, and trusts God with her every need. Something that makes this series so appealing is that teen girls can easily relate to the obstacles in Maya’s life. Relating to the main character of a book is an important aspect in making the book appealing, and Erynn does just that.

Double Shot by Erynn Mangum is the last of the Maya Davis Novel series published by NavPress. Maya Davis, who is now engaged to the love of her life, Jack, believes that all will go well from then on. Little did she know that planning their wedding is a complicated matter by itself. Add to that the prospect of a major life change brought on by getting married. But when Jack is offered a better job which entails a transfer to another city, Maya begins to doubt if marrying Jack is God’s will for h ...more

Maya's humor very dry and tongue-in-cheek humor makes a reprisal appearance in this last installment of the Maya Davis series. In this book Maya discovers that wedding planning isn't all flowers and cake; instead, a couple has to come to terms with the reality of merging their individual lives into one partnership.

I can see why this book is characterized by most as "Young Adult Fiction" because it lacks a certain complexity in the plo

Maya Davis has a lot on her mind lately. Her engagement to Jack was supposed to be a wonderful prelude to marital bliss. However, planning a wedding is stressful and a new job opportunity for Jack is threatening their unity. On top of that, Maya has to deal with a busy job, premarital counseling, and the emotional roller coaster that her nephew's premature birth put her on. Will she be able to completely trust God before her life completely unravels?

Double Shot starts where Latte Daze ends: Maya and Jack are engaged and now planning a life together. Maya must plan a wedding (planning not being her strong point) in just a few short months while figuring out what God has planned for her and Jack. A possible move away from her family and friends along with complications with Kate’s pregnancy (I won't spoil what happens) teach Maya to trust God even when His ways don’t make sense on her sticky notes.

This book was pretty good. Not my favorite series. I prefered Mangum's Lauren Holbrook series more. Some of the conversations in this book were more mature.

I felt like Maya's character didn't really resolve any of her struggles. She had, over the course of the series, struggled with feeling purpose in her life. She worked at a coffee shop and liked it, but felt like she wanted to do more with her life. By the end of the third book, she had given up her job altogether, got married, and was moving

I'm always sad to see an Erynn Mangum book end, especially when it's the end of a series. The characters are so relatable and alive that it's like saying goodbye to an old friend when the story ends. Since this book deals with heavier issues of change and growing up, the emotions were right at the surface the whole time and I was riveted by the story lines and the character responses to the situations.
This book focused much more on Maya and Jack than the other books. As they plan their wedding,

I'm not usually one to sit on edge for a book release... and few authors can capture me enough to truly follow closely such news... but Erynn Mangum captured my heart & mind right away with her first series, and this one (Maya Davis) was no different.

Maya's boyfriend, Jack, has just asked her to marry him. And she's about to become an aunt. But is Maya ready for all these changes?

The third and final book of the Maya Davis Series by Erynn Mangum gave me plenty of laughs and tears. Maya Davis is marrying her best friend, Jack, and the wedding is right around the corner.

Thankfully, her nephew makes it, but must remain in the NICU for awhile. If that isn't enough to worry about, Jack announces a possible job transfer to Seattle, and Maya defi ...more

Well written. Her books are always interesting to read because she thinks so much like me. She puts in silly stuff that didn't have to be there, but it just makes her book that much more interesting. I would have liked one area to be longer when Maya was deciding on whether or not to move to Seattle. It isn't said what happened and what God said to her to convince her it was a good idea. However, this is her best book yet and I got to say, I laughed and cried throughout the entire thing! It real ...more

I debated giving this three stars and truthfully this is my least favorite book by this author so far, however I have a few biases. I still don't like the words wedding and planning in the same sentence. I somehow mixed up events that happened in the previous book with another book by a different author and confused myself (not major details but something to do with secondary characters). It was kinda gray and rainy outside so when Maya was worried, I read sad. My favorite parts were about Benja ...more
