When You’re Ready by JL 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.

I really loved this book. 
It is the story of a young widow called Clare Murray & her daughter Maddie.  Clare’s husband passed away 3 years ago & Clare still misses him, but has resigned herself to being without him.
 When Clare has to take Maddie to the ER department of their local hospital, they meet Dr Logan Matthews.  Logan is a Billionaires son, who due to a very public divorce & the constant disapproval of his father, has become cold & emotionless.
However, after meeting Clare & Maddie, Logan starts to feel that maybe his life could be different, but does Clare feel the same?
This was a beautiful story written in both Clare’s & Logan’s POV, which I personally enjoy.   You instantly connect with Clare, who is a sweet & very loving mother to the absolutely adorable Maddie. Their interactions are wonderful. Maddie is a total joy.  
Once you get to know Logan, you understand where he is coming from.  When all three characters get together it is lovely, they work so well together.
There is a lot of humour in this book, where I was laughing out loud & giggling about long after, but there are some heart wrenching moments that had me sobbing my heart out.
I highly recommend this book, but make sure you have tissues handy when you read it.

I'm heartbroken!!! I didn't ever want this book to end. J.L Berg's writing is superb, the story was absolutely beautiful. This author starts as she means to go on with this one, I was completely overwhelmed throughout most of the book but in the best way, Its emotional from the word go and I loved it! I don't want to give anything away but, Clare was given a second chance at love and a happily ever after but fate is cruel, Clare deserved the happily ever after and you'll just have to read it yourself to find out if she did or not. Maddie is Clare's daughter is the most adorable four year old, who has wisdom way older than her years. Dr Logan Matthews has managed to push his way into the top ten book boyfriends list for me as he is the kindest man ever. He takes an instant shine to Clare and Maddie even though they meet in the ER and are both covered in vomit, Its the sweetest thing and he's amazing in every way! Thank you J.L Berg you have ruined me! This book is going to give me the biggest hangover! However I can't wait for Leah's story.  

Totally 5 stars, without a doubt I'd give it more if I could!!!
