    Loved it

    Was hooked after the first book, and kept reading... till the last page, loved maya, her drama, and her love of coffee and post it notes. Has recomended this book to our young adults to read, many of them have already stared the first book, and have enjoyed it greatly. I loved how in each book, i get to grow with maya, i get to feel her confusion, pain, joy, and love.

    Good ending to series

    I thought this was a cute series. Maya & Jack are getting married in this book and with that impending marriage comes the necessity for change which is a little scary.

    So Amazing. You must read it!!!

    Double Shot is so good. It's a must read book. If you haven't read the other books to the Maya Davis Series you need to. Maya's character is funny and full of surprises. There definitely needs to be another book. I just don't want the series to ever end.

    Entertaining...

    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 by Erynn Mangum is an enjoyable read geared toward teens and twenty-somethings. Despite all the issues Maya has, the book feels light and playful. On one hand, this is good because it makes the book a fun and easy read. On the other hand, Double Shot has some important spiritual lessons that get a little lost in the lightness of the book. I think if the book was somehow made to be more poignant, it would be more effective.

    The entire time I was reading Double Shot I kept thinking that if a movie was ever made of it, Anne Hathaway should play Maya. She reminded me so much of Anne's character, Mia, in The Princess Diaries. Their names are even sound similar! (Double Shot's plot is nothing like The Princess Diaries.)

    A Refreshing Story about Relationships

    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 her. She is resistant to the thought of having to leave her family, her job and her church family. What will she do? Double Shot is a feel-good story that is appropriate for the older teens and the mature singles. The manner in which Jack and Maya carried on in their relationship is very refreshing. Jack and Maya have promised to each other that they will wait until getting married to be intimate. So they spend their time working hard, getting to know each other better, caring for their family and ministering to others in their church. MY THOUGHTS I have not read the other books in this series, but I believe that each book can stand on its own. There are no parts where I have wondered what happened in the past books, and I think that's a good thing. It is good to read a book about Christian singles who have made loving and serving God a vital part of their lives. I love the family dynamics shown in this book where love flows in and through the whole family. The relationships with their friends and churchmates are a joy to read about. I would highly recommend this book for parents to get for their growing teens and for Christian singles.

    Double Shot

    Double Shot" is the third and final book in the Maya Davis series written by Erynn Mangum. I have come to love the characters in this series of books and was sad to see the end. In this installment Maya is facing several life changing events, her best friend and room mate Jen has just gotten married so Maya is faced with living alone for the first time, although her loyal friend and canine companion Calvin is with her. She is engaged to her boyfriend Jack and is in a frenzy of planning her own wedding, throw in to the mix the fact that her brother and sister-in-law just had a preemie baby, and you would think there is plenty enough going on to keep the readers turning the pages, but add to all this the fact that Jack just might get a job that will take them several hundred miles from their friends and family, and you have a story that has you turning the pages as fast as you can to see how things will ultimately work out! I think my favorite thing about the Maya Davis series is that the characters seem so real to life, they are a twenties something group, and have ups and downs like we all do. Maya is such a down to earth person, who has no problems laughing at herself upon occasion. Maya's pastor, Andrew, is so funny, and I kept hoping he would finally ask out Liz. I also enjoy how the author weaves in the issues of faith, and God into this series, the idea of Wed night Bible study seems so normal for this group. While this is the third in a series it can easily be read as a stand alone book, although I would suggest reading the entire series so that you can experience the entire relationship of Jack and Maya! I received a complimentary copy of this book from NavPress in exchange for an honest review.

    If you like light, easy reading, happy endings...

    this is the book for you.

    This was a cute book. Maya is engaged to Jack, they go to church, go through marital counseling, go through the wedding planning process...it was all a little expected. A little too expected. I wasn't as happy with this book as I thought I would be. There was hardly no conflict what-so-ever. I kept waiting for the ball to drop; for a huge fight between Maya and Jack or Maya and her best friend. The only conflict happened in the last 1/4 of the book, and it didn't seem like that much of a conflict. I think this book would have been better if there were more conflicts of the heart.

    I would recommend this book to young adults, early twenties. It has great Christian values and scripture references for when Maya reads her Bible before bed. Although, I wasn't intellectually stimulated, I was able to relate to the 'conflict' in the book. My husband recently had an interview in WA, and since the interview I feel that we are supposed to stay in CA with family. But since the interview (which he didn't get the job for) he is convinced that we should move out of state. Maybe I should look up all those verses Maya found about moving!

    Fun read about love without cheapening love

    Book three in the series featuring Maya Davis clinches the love story with a match-made-in-heaven engagement. You'd think Maya has reached the finish line by hooking the perfect guy, but then we wouldn't have a third book, right?

    Wedding preparations spiral out of control and decisions for the future leave the couple in doubt. Double Shot is a roller-coaster ride of haywire emotions, relationship tangles, and faith builders.

    The novel features a generic young adult fiction world, peopled by the usual suspects: a coffee-addicted heroine, a dreamy hero, a cast of crazy-lovable friends and family.

    Acquainted with Erynn Mangum's Lauren Holbrook series, I was constantly trying to figure out the difference between main characters Lauren and Maya. There seems to be none, except physical description and occupation. The rest of the characters (and plot twists) feel birthed from the same formula.

    In place of the usual heavy lacing of sex and promiscuity in today's chick lit, Double Shot serves a heaping spoonful of God conversations and church (and churchy) symbols. This may turn off half of the young adult reading population, but it provides a clean-fun alternative to the rest (and gives parents something less to worry about).

    And while the Christianizing of chick lit can get a bit overboard for me, what I like about it is how it gives a fun read about love without having to cheapen love-the way other books do when they dredge out sacred details.

    Interestingly, Double Shot, and other chick lit in similar mode, gives readers a window to the psyche of Christians in love, who, contrary to what the Sunday dress would have the world believe, mess up big time, as well.

    Enjoyable Reading

    'Double Shot' by Erynn Mangum is the third book in her Maya Davis series. After reading the 2nd book of this series, 'Latte Daze' I was very excited to have the opportunity to review this new book. This book picked up at Maya's roommate Jennifer's wedding and concludes with her own. But from wedding to wedding is not an easy time. Maya's resistance to change is pushed to its near limits in this latest book. It was an enjoyable read and I had a hard time putting it down. There were some changes from 'Latte Daze' though. I found this book not as filled with scripture and Bible truths which I had found surprising, different and refreshing in 'Latte Daze'. 'Double Shot' was more storyline focused with some scripture referenced more typical to other Christian fiction novels I've read. This book also focused primarily on Maya with very little development of secondary characters which lead to a minutia of detail in Maya's day to day that got to be overwhelming at times. All and all it's a great light read with a good message. I look forward to following along as Maya embraces the upcoming big changes in her life.

    A really fun read

    Double Shot follows the continuing adventures of Maya, lover of coffee and chocolate, as she goes from being a girlfriend to a fiancee and plans a wedding to her beloved Jack. I laughed at many of the wedding planning scenes- I could definitely relate to Maya's feelings of being overwhelmed and out of her element at all of the bridal planning! This book is really a great read- the characters are believable and multi-dimensional and fun, and it was great to catch up on all their continuing adventures. My only point of complaint with the book was Maya's confusion over whether or not to move to Seattle- how could anyone ever not want to live in Seattle! :)


    This book, like the others in the Maya Davis series, is written for the young adult audience, but I (in my early 30s) still really liked it a lot. The author has a gift for writing Christian novels that are realistic, but still full of faith and scripture.

    Entertaining read!

    Double Shot is the third book in Erynn Mangum's trilogy about Maya Davis, a coffee obsessed, slightly crazy, completely loveable barista. Maya works at Cool Beans, a local coffee shop. In Double Shot, she's just become engaged to Jack. Everything will work out perfectly...won't it? Maya is faced with the challenge of a possible move to Seattle, honeymoon decisions, her premature nephew, and planning a wedding in only three months. Her faith in God is challenged as she struggles to accept the possibility of leaving her family and her friends.

    I really enjoyed this book. When I requested it, I didn't realize that it was the conclusion of a trilogy. Even though it was the end of the trilogy, it was still great. I was impressed that Eyrnn was able to write a book that could stand on its own, without requiring the first two books. As in the Lauren Holbrook series, Maya has the same coffee obsession and likeable personality.

    Unlike the Lauren Holbrook series, I felt like the God thing was better incorporated into this book. In Lauren's series, I felt like Erynn ended most chapters with one to two paragraphs about God, and that was it. She did a much better job in this novel.

    It's a great read!

    Double Shot

    This book is unusual in many senses of the word. From the cover, readers can be right in assuming the book is all about marriage. The protagonist Maya experiences weddings and births from friends and families. The book starts of with Maya being already engaged. Most of the book follows her relationships with friends and family, some interactions with her fiance, and planning her own wedding. The book is not graphic and ends right at the wedding of Maya and her groom. The only risque part is when it is mentioned how Maya's girlfriends buy her lingerie; I just think that's weird. Maya tries to discern God's will when it comes to moving. In the end, her decision is expected but not necessarily backed up fully. I wasn't too fond of the overly stereotypical woman who gets married and has to many hormones, but, the pages flew by. Also, there are some positive Christian undertones. I didn't even know this book was a third in a series until I finished and looked back at the first few inner pages.
