Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway | Ready or Not by J.L. Berg

Purchase READY OR NOT:

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?

I have always, always loved JL Berg's story, and looking forward every time she is about to release a new one. Just like the rest of the Ready Series, I was captivated, I swooned and fell in love with Liv & Jackson.

Liv may came from a wealthy and powerful family, but she prefers her simple and hip lifestyle. She's a fighter and a hard-worker. She's the type of character you will easily like, and there was really no reason not to. I like her easy demeanor, the way she handled "tweens" as Jackson would call them and I love her relationship not just with her friends but with Noah as well.

As for the hottie Jackson - he might be the firm believer of patience and PERFECT timing. Besides the fact that he is an eye-candy, one thing to adore about this man is his passion and his effort of becoming a good single father to his son. He always make sure that he comes first at whatever choice he was making.Considering his son, Noah is hitting puberty stage. It was quite a task he wasn't sure he was ready for. He was excited in starting over with a clean slate in a brand new city, with a new job and an interesting, beautiful neighbor.

It was great to see the rest of the characters from the previous books, and how they are living their happil-ever afters. I missed them all!!!! They were really great friends not just to Liv, but they have welcomed Jackson with open arms, of course, with a little threat in the side. 

The wait for the both of them to be together was worth it. They were attracted to each other, but didn't act on it at first, they circle around it, made some pranks, but when they finally get together, it was amazing - of course, Jackson made her wait a little more for the best part - I wanted to complain, but I guess, good things come to those who wait, because when it finally happened, it was just beautiful. 

Everything can't be THAT perfect, so both of their past comes in, and tries to ruin everything. It was vile, manipulative and my heart broke for the both of them, most especially for Liv. Because THIS was her fervent wish and she thought it was finally coming true - only to know that it wasn't. When her world was crumbling and she was about to shut off, Jackson didn't let her. I love a guy who knows when to give space, and when to finally talk about it.

Ready or Not is another well-written romantic read from J.L. Berg that will surely get you hooked and wanting for the next one in the series.
