I’ve followed Jennifer Berg from her first book in the Ready Series, “When You Are Ready”, and have been enthralled with stories. And from her first book to the latest in the series, “Ready Or Not”, has been journey of hard work, apprehension, learning, progress and maturity from experience.

“Ready Or Not” brings Olivia Quinn and Jackson Reid as neighbors turning into friends to making a future with each other.

ReadyOrNot-CoverReveal-Sept2014

Liv breaks away from her wealthy political family to stand on her two feet, independent and working for what her heart believes in. She becomes a counselor with stellar qualifications and leaves behind her trust funds and a past that was swallowed by politics and power. And her professional experience brings her up close and personal with Jackson and his teenage son.

Single father Jackson is starting a new life with his teenage son, Noah, in a new city. His tryst with his puberty raged son brings him face to face with Liv, who coincidentally happens to be his neighbor; a neighbor, who happens to be giving him sleepless nights and making his life a living hell of raging hormones.

Attraction flares, sparks fly, passion reaches its zenith and they fall in love with all their past failures and insecurities. As Liv’s past comes to light, Jackson is a solid rock supporting her. With Noah going through changes and Jackson trying to be a good father, Liv eases his fears and insecurities. Personally, Liv and Jackson are my favorites.

Jennifer Berg has done a brilliant job of penning Liv and Jackson. Her maturity in writing is so very evident with the depth of her characters. There is so much more importance given to the relationship among her friends, the unconditional love and support from Liv’s extended family, the clarity of emotions between Jackson and Liv, made this story so much more precious and pleasurable to read.

Born into wealth and privilege, free-spirited Liv Quinn left it all behind when she realized there was more to life than living off of trust funds and barely skating by.  Since then, she’s worked and fought for everything she’s earned and never looked back at the world or the family she left behind.

Jackson Reid is starting over with a new job in a brand new city.  A single father to his son Noah, he hopes the change will help strengthen the bond that has seemed to suffer since puberty reared its ugly head.  What he hadn’t planned on was Liv—his exotic next-door neighbor who drives him insane with her wild, new age lifestyle, but still manages to leave him aching for more.

As challenges arise and feelings intensify, will these neighbors be able to look past their differences and find a middle ground?  When love comes knocking, will they be ready, or not?

What would it be like to return to your own roots? To a place where you had spent your wonder years, to a town that is home to unanswered questions, to a heart that, hoping it still beats for you?

J.L.Berg’s third book, “Ready For You” in her Ready Series, is a manuscript of two beautiful people and their love story. Garrett and Mia, friends in high school, fall in love dreaming of a life together. But even the best-laid plans go haywire and their path of together splits into two very different directions.

Fate brings them back full circle to the very place their relationship has disappeared and now it is up to them to complete that circle of life. It is time to understand and to be understood. It is time to hear the unspoken words of pain, regret and lasting love between the words of betrayal, misunderstanding and manipulation. Guilt and insecurities are a force to reckon in our lives!

This is by far Jennifer’s best work as she weaves the story between Garrett and Mia. If her first two books, “When You Are Ready” and “Never Been Ready” dealt with circumstances and how her characters trusted to welcome a new life, ‘Ready For You’ is an emotional roller coaster ride as Garrett and Mia try to explore the choices made, dealing with the consequences of those choices, trying to understand the unexplained actions, reconciling with the loss of precious treasures, and Jennifer does not break for a second, for us to catch our breath between the hurt and the tears and the longing and the lust.Image

What’s more beautiful is the foundation of friendship that eases Garrett and Mia back into a familiar relationship, giving them a chance to rekindle the trust and love one more time, and this time forever and for always.  Jennifer’s done a fabulous job of choreographing their emotions through actions. As much as it hurts to look back and be scared of what the future may hold, with your best friend and the love of your life right beside each other, Garrett and Mia find their kingdom with the unconditional help and support of a loving family around them.

Ready Or Not – I want more from this lady who is turning out to be one heck of a great writer and I am tickled with excitement for getting the privilege of writing reviews for her books.
