Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Squeezes Your Heart"

    When You're Ready (Ready #1) by J.L. Berg is beautifully romantic. The love story is sweet and tender. But there's nothing tender about how the words wrap themselves around your heart and squeeze. This poignant story will stay with you long after that final page. Loved it so much that we featured it on our review site!

    "A Beautiful love story"

    Loved this story about redemption, second chances and starting new. Logan was the local playboy.. Clare the young widow, thinking she had already found her soul mate but now he was gone.

    Both help each other move past their failures and insecurities and guide each other towards a love that neither thought they deserved.

    The narrators were great and kept me interested and ready for more.

    Story
    "So predictable!"
    Any additional comments?

    Okay, I love a good ole sloppy romance just as much as the next person, but this was just really bad. There was very little story...so much of the book was spent building this perfect relationship and after a while I kept waiting for something to happen. The dialog was so ridiculously perfect and their was never any motivation given for Logan to suddenly decide Claire was the one to make him settle down and be a "better man". All of the..."events" of the books were so obvious I saw them coming by chapter 2. I don't know, maybe I'm finally growing out of romance novels, it seems its hard to find a good one anymore.

    Story
    "A sweet if slightly predictable romance"

    The story was ok. The "conflict" in the story was predictable given the characters' history, but this was a sweet love story and enjoyable to listen to in the car. I was very impressed by the narrators, especially Carly Robins. This may sound weird if you haven't listened to a lot of books but if the pace of the narration is off, it is completely distracting from the story itself. Carly Robins did a wonderful job of conveying emotion and urgency. I would like to hear how she read a mystery. Scott Aiello was also very good if a little more one-dimensional. Both did a great job of pacing the story.

    Story
    "To take a chance or not"

    I owe the author and the book an apology. When got about 2/3 through the novel. I needed an hiatus, as I was certain I couldn't handle the 'inevitable' drama from his past to come as 'test' their love.
    What filled the last 100 pages was totally unexpected and although I didn't break down and cry uncontrollably, I did at various touching moments in the story shed a fair amount of tears.
    The characters and their emotions were true and believable, with Leah as a welcome tension breaker throughout!
    I will definitely recommend this and am already looking forward to the next book.
