Ready or Not by J.L. Berg
About 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?

|3.5 Nice Stars|
Ready or not is book #4 In the Ready Series. This is the first book I have read by this author and I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review so here goes…
This book is cute, it’s not a complicated read that makes you think hard and consider the plot from five different angles. Ready or Not is simply good romance.
This book is a standalone and I read and enjoyed it without any back-story to the other characters in the group. However I think it would be a great addition to the story to have met the other characters first.
I actually really liked both Liv and Jackson they are both genuinely nice people. It’s rare these days to find two normal characters usually one is damaged or odd in one way or another.
But this book is just a nice story, there’s a couple of twists and turns but mainly it’s just nice.
I loved the pranks they played on each other and at times this book felt a bit silly. But it all just added to the warm, happy feeling this story created.
I personally felt that Liv’s narrative and ‘voice’ felt much older than her supposed 28 years but that’s just my opinion.
This is the perfect beach or Sunday afternoon read, it’s nice and drama free just good old fashioned romance.
Ready or not gets 3.5 stars.
