WYR NEW AmazonAbout WHEN YOU’RE READY:

Years after suffering the tragic loss of her husband, Ethan, which left her alone to raise their young daughter, Clare Murray still holds the last letter he wrote with the words “When You’re Ready” written in his familiar messy handwriting, unable to break its weathered seal. Ready for what? He was her entire world, and Clare had accepted a life without him, without love. Until years later, fate brings her to an emergency room, and face to face with a stormy-eyed doctor intent on changing her mind.

Son of a billionaire, Logan Matthews has spent his life trying to make his absentee father proud. Without a family to depend on, all he’s ever wanted is a place to call home. After a failed marriage, Logan believes he’s unworthy of love…until he meets a woman who awakens his spirit and transforms his entire life in an instant.

But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? Can his love mend the pieces of her grieving heart?

When their love is tested, is Clare ready to put her whole heart on the line again? Can Logan learn the true meaning of love, even if it means sacrificing his own happiness? When a second chance at love is given, Clare and Logan learn you are never truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.

The first novel in the Ready series. Each novel can be read as a standalone.

Synopsis4

Born into wealth and privilege, free-spirited Liv Prescott left it all behind when she realized there was more to life than living off of trust funds and barely skating by.

Excerpt4

When I finally stepped out of my car, a gasp escaped my lungs as my eyes lowered to the flower beds separating our two houses.

“Who would do such a thing?” I whispered, looking down at the decapitated and ravaged flowers.

The once beautiful display of multicolored perennials was now a churned-up disaster of footprints and soil.

My heated gaze settled on the lights glowing within the house. A shadow passed by an open window upstairs in what used to be Mrs. Reid’s master bedroom.

I took one step forward, ready to march over, meet my new neighbors, and give them a piece of my mind.

A strong gust of wind sent the curtain into a tailspin and suddenly the shadow solidified, and I saw the finest bare back I’d seen in years. It was tanned, broad, and so muscular that the defined muscles could be seen from two floors down. Hard, lean arms reached out toward a box and grabbed a T-shirt as I begged him to turn around—until my eyes found his ass.

Dear Lord.

My new neighbor was hot—or at least the back of him was.

Turn around, turn around, I silently begged.

The weather took that moment to remind me of its mighty power and sent a strong gust of wind whipping through the two houses. The curtain settled back in place, and I was once again left with shadows.

As the first raindrop fell, signaling the impending storm, I looked down at the once perfect garden that I had painstakingly kept alive as a tribute to my longtime friend and neighbor. It had been trampled on and was now ruined, and I felt the rage boiling back up to the surface.

Hot or not, my new neighbor was a plant-trampling jerk, and when I got home from work tomorrow, I’d make sure he knew it.

I’d also take a moment to see if that face of his matched his perfect back and ass.

Shut up, Liv.

About NEVER BEEN READY:

Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood’s new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn’t hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought.

Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn’t walk away.

When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities tear them apart? When Declan’s past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead?

It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do.

About READY FOR YOU:

A second chance at first love.

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.

The third novel in the Ready series. Each novel can be read as a standalone.

Shera’s 5 of 5 Star Review!

“You are my family, my future and my forever.”    We met Clare Murray and Logan Matthews in When Your Ready.   Clare ended up in the ER with her little girl Maddie and Logan just happened to be the ER doctor that walked in the door.    I simply adore these two and what an amazing journey they have been on throughout the entire Ready Series!

One of my favorite quotes from When Your Ready, I think its fitting…. “I’ll wait. For however long it takes, Clare. I’m yours.” ― J.L. BergWhen You’re Ready

Of course the trip to St. Thomas wasn’t without incident.  Always something going on in their lives, whether it be Logan’s Health or Clare’s dresstastrophy!    You have to read to find out!  The story like each and every Ready Series book was simply amazing.  Clare and Logan are soul mates and I loved to see the continuation of their journey.   Hot Steamy Sex, Romance, Love and laughs always follow these two, but so does Logan’s illness , will it rear its ugly head and drive Clare to the point she puts everything on hold?

And Declan and Leah, those two are quite the characters.  I am simply in love with EACH and every one of the characters in this series.  J.L. has a writing style like no other that flows effortlessly and if you haven’t read When Your Ready (Clare and Logan), Never Been Ready ( Leah and Declan, or Ready For You (Garrett and Mia) then what are you waiting for?  I have given each and every book in this series 5 shining stars, and this is no different!  Keep writing J.L, it just keeps getting better and better!

Shera’s Review  5 SHINING STARS! ★★★★★

What can I say? I knew this book would be nothing short of stunningly spectacular Amazeballs!

First Logan and Clare in When Your Ready. SWOONtastic!! Then, Declan and Leah, ok DOUBLE Swoontastic, equally hot, melt your heart, breathtaking ride (and you thought it couldn’t get better than Logan and Clare, pssssshh right)… Do you see a pattern here?

Now we get Garrett and Mia…. Oh Garrett, sweet, sexy, Goobertastic Finnegan. Double, do a backflip, double rotating twist (ok, so I am no olympic gymnast here) you’re getting my drift and what a melt your panties, grip your heart and run away with it drift it is!!

Garrett and Mia had plans, big plans. But, not everything is all carebears and frilly froo-froo pretty things now are they?

Eight years ago, she slipped away. Perfect love, his everything, his light. Gone. Left with a simple note, which offered no explanation and a family that had zipped lips. Now, Garrett turned workaholic, used everything and anything to avoid having a spare moment to feel. Anything to take away from thinking of that beautiful brunette, but that didn’t stop him from dreaming.

Mia left with nothing. Walked away from her love, her everything and everyone she ever knew to start a new life. Not all new beginnings have the outcome you desire and more times then not, you go right back to where you last remember being truly happy.

Fate has a funny way of smacking you in the face, one turned corner or one crowded street and sprinkle of divine intervention can bring two lost broken hearts, two people who never stopped thinking of each other face to face with a chance to possibly find themselves again.

Can the past be forgiven? Hearts be healed? Or is Mia’s secret enough to shatter the dreams Garrett has held onto beyond repair?

You will have to read to find out and trust me you will not be disappointed!

Oh and for those that met Logan, Clare, Leah and Declan already…Don’t worry your pretty little heads, they are along for the ride. I love that they are a part of Garrett and Mia’s journey. Not like we could forget any of them as it was anyways of course!

J.L needs to take a bow, because she continues to deliver absolutely brilliant stories.RFY3

RFY26Excerpt

With our bags loaded, we started to make our way back to the car, weaving through the crowd and enjoying the sounds of people talking and soft music playing. I smiled when I heard a child laughing.  I turned to see a child being thrown over his father’s shoulder.

“Garrett! Stop it! I’m too old to be carried!” The child laughed.

“You’re never too old to be tackled, Connor! We’ve got to get you ready for football!”

That voice—even after eight years, I would recognize it anywhere. My stomach fell to the concrete, and my feet cemented to the ground. I was frozen, completely frozen. Everything slowed. The street noise melted away, and each and every shopper disappeared until I saw him. He had the boy slung over his shoulder. They were both laughing and breathless from their horseplay. He looked older, but it was still him. He still had the same jet-black hair, emerald eyes, and dazzling smile. A beautiful blonde woman was smiling at the two of them as they joked around.

My heart finally caught up to my brain, and it felt like a jackhammer was beating hard and fast in my chest. My hands shook, and my knees suddenly felt weak and wobbly. I had no idea how much time had passed since I saw him.

Minutes? Hours? 

I didn’t know, but it couldn’t have been long since Liv was just now noticing my crazy behavior.

“Amelia, are you okay? You look like you just saw a ghost,” she said.

When I didn’t respond, she must have glanced up because I heard her gasp. She’d seen him, too.

“I-I need to get out of here—now,” I gritted through my teeth.

“Are you sure?”

I just nodded and started to turn. I couldn’t face him. He probably hated me.

He had a kid. That hurt. My hand went to my chest, trying to rub out the pain settling there. He had a child. That meant the blonde standing next to him was probably his wife. Garrett was married. It had been eight years. Of course he would be married. I didn’t know why I was surprised, but he wasn’t supposed to be here. He had moved away. He was supposed to stay away. I couldn’t be here if he was still here. I couldn’t breathe if he was still here.

“Come on, sweetheart, let’s get to the car,” Liv said gently, grabbing my arm and guiding me toward the car.

I just gave a brief nod as I let her lead me.

We hadn’t made it three steps before I heard the words that made my heart come to a screeching halt.

“Mia? Mia, is that you?”
