Book Spotlight - When You're Ready by J L Berg


Can his love mend the pieces of her grieving heart?

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.

Logan Matthews is the son of a billionaire who has spent his entire life trying to make his absent father proud. Years of living up to a man who was more ghost than father, and a publicly failed marriage has left Logan cold and emotionless until he walks into an exam room and discovers a woman who can stop his heart, make his body burn with desire and leave his entire world altered.

But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? 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 never know if you are truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.

J.L. Berg is a California native living in the South. She's married to her highschool sweetheart and they have two beautiful girls that drive them batty on a daily basis. When she's not writing, you can find her with her nose stuck in a romance book, in a yoga studio or devouring anything chocolate.



This book is told from both the pov's of Clare, a young widow and single mom, and Logan an ER Trauma Doctor. Their first meeting takes place in the ER where Clare's daughter, Maddie, is a patient. Logan is immediately drawn to the sweet little girl and her beautiful mother.

I have to say this is a very bittersweet and emotional book. I had to pull out the tissues at one point. It had a great plot twist that I never saw coming. There is a great cast of supporting characters, Leah, Clare's BFF is a bit of a minx and throws in a bit of comic relief. I loved how she tried to help Logan coax Clare out of her shell. (We're getting Leah's story next)

In the end this was a very satisfying read and I look forward to many more books by this author.
