Tag Archive: Ready Series


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?

Within these walls is a story of pain and survival. Within these walls is a romance of love and sacrifice and within these walls are two people who had the courage to let go of guilt and find each other, to make a new life with each other.

“He wasn’t just hot. He was different. Different and hot were a deadly combination for all females, even for me, and that made him interesting. But love is not an option for me.” Lailah

Young Lailah’s been within the walls of the hospital more than she could remember being at home. Battling demons of her heart and waiting for that small glimmer of hope that can change her life, she is one courageous lady trying to make the best of her situation. She gives herself pep talks of encouragement within the walls of her almost permanent home and even cracks jokes to herself, about herself.

“Then I had seen her. As if she didn’t have a care in the world. She had been eating pudding without a spoon while staying in a hospital, like it was the most normal thing in the world. I had been selfish. So damn selfish.” Jude

Years of guilt and pain have driven Jude to living within the walls of his torturous heart. Once a happy go lucky guy and with the world at his feet, tragedy drives him to make a home within the walls of a hospital, severing ties with his family. A chance meeting with Lailah, spending time with her and becoming more than friends, becomes his salvation.

WithinTheseWalls-Pic-CoverReveal-July2014

Jude and Lailah will make their readers shed more than a few tears as they get to know each other. If Jude bends backward to make it his life mission to fulfill Lailah’s “Lailah’s Someday List”, Lailah with her patience and positivity, helps Jude get past his guilt and hurt. They both make an endearing couple and you can’t help but cry and laugh with them every step of their story. There are so many instances in the book that brought tears to my eyes and I lived the pain and love with Jude and Lailah as I read the book.

J.L Berg’s latest release “Within These Walls” is one of the most poignant and courageous stories I’ve read. Jennifer writes from her heart, and Jude and Lailah are her crowning glory as she leaves footprints across the globe. Having followed her from her first book, “When You’re Ready” (Ready Series),  she has penned herself into an awesome writer with her latest book.

“Within These Walls” will leave an indelible mark on the heart of the readers!!
