Tag Archive: Ready Series


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.

The much awaited “Ready For You” is out with it’s cover – Mia and Garrett re-discover each other!!!

Covers for all books are in general really, really good. But there always comes a time when you look at a cover and you feel all tingled, happy, excited, enamoured, spellbinding and so very much in love…..and that is what J.L. Berg’s third book cover “Ready For You”, in her “Ready Series”, does for me. The splashes of white, purple, pink and black, with the couple finally in each other’s arms, all tell a story within its walls – a story of regret, loss, pain and of second chances and of finding each other.

Title: Ready for You

Series: Ready #3

Author: JL Berg

Release Date: May 26, 2014

Summary: Eight years ago, Garrett Finnegan’s world shattered the day Mia vanished from his life. He’s been struggling to pick up the pieces ever since. Haunted by memories and ghosts of the past, he chooses a solitary existence rather than risk his heart again.

Mia Emerson has made one wrong decision after another but none worse than walking away from the boy who stole her heart so long ago. When her new life is turned upside down, she finds herself returning to her roots and the hometown she left behind. Maybe now she can find a way to heal from the devastating mistakes of her past.

When a chance encounter brings these former lovers together, passion reignites in a way neither is prepared for. Can Garrett move beyond his anger and find a way to forgive? Will Mia’s insecurities and fears cause her to once again flee the life she’s destined to live?

Garrett and Mia will soon discover that they must journey into the past to find their way home.

A full time Mom of two adorable kids, how do you manage being a mom, wife, writer and of course a fun person on social forums:

Jennifer: I don’t sleep!  No, I’m kidding.  Kind of ……

It’s definitely a lot and there are times when I feel like I am failing in one or more of my duties.  Sometimes I have to shut down and pay attention to my kids and leave writing alone for a while.  There are also times when Mommy has a deadline and they have to watch a movie by themselves.  It’s a balancing act, but I’m lucky enough to have a very patient and supportive husband, who help me stay sane.  Mostly…

When readers read your books, what do you want them to feel?

Jennifer: I want my readers to feel everything!  I am known for making readers cry, but I also have quite a number of funny and sexy moments in my novels that balance out the heavy.  I like knowing my readers finish one of my novels feeling an array of emotions, rather than just one or two.  That is life—we feel everything.  

How do you balance the relation of editor, publisher and writer?

Jennifer: I am self-published (except for my audio) so I am my own boss!  But I do work with two editors.  Yes, two! I am anal when it comes to editing so I have two, to make sure that everything is perfect by the time a book is released.  Both are women I love and trust them with my work.

ImageWho do you brainstorm the scenes with in your books:

Jennifer: I come up with scenes for books randomly.  There’s no rhyme or rhythm to the way my brain works.  Sometimes I’ll come up with an epic scene as I’m floating off to sleep.  Other times, something will come to me when I am grocery shopping or taking a shower.  A writer’s mind is weird.  I think we only live in the real world half the time. 

What was the most difficult part of writing ‘Never Been Ready’:

Jennifer: I hated writing Leah’s father.  He was a necessary character to her development and to the book, but I seriously hated him.  I don’t think I’ve ever disliked one of my characters – it was a definite first for me. 

Now here’s my “Curious George” question –

How much of the erotic scenes are inspired by personal experience (tongue in cheek) 😉 😉 😉 –

Jennifer: Hahahahaha, you could publish this.  I’m not shy.

Jennifer: I’d say about half.  But the other half, my husband likes to re-enact, just to make sure they are authentic.  J

She is such a sweetheart!
