Goodbye Everyone.

I recently decided that I needed to make a change and giving up my blog made sense. I created it in a time when I thought I needed it, it was my escape. But then my hobby became my job and with it came the stress of having to keep up. I love reading and I want to keep loving it, I don't want it to end up being something that I turned into an obligation. 

So thank you to everyone who has stopped by over the years. Thank you to the wonderful authors and bloggers who I have had the pleasure to interact with. This was an amazing experience and you all made it worth it, I have made so many friends and formed so many memories, but now I am finally ready to move on.

When You're Ready by J.L. Berg

17906490


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.


<><><><><><><><>

My Review

Clare has lived through one of the worst experiences a person could ever face. She lost a piece of herself and instead devoted her life to caring for her daughter. She never thought she would ever feel desire or anything resembling it, until Dr. Matthews walks into her life. She never thought that he would be so amazing after hearing about his reputation, but she is falling for him. Will he be the missing piece she needs, is she willing to admit it and finally move on? 

Logan has been with more woman than he can count. He never thought he would find one that would make him want to change until Clare. When he is with her he feels like every t
​​
hing is natural, like it was meant to be. He is afraid to mess it up or for them to realize that they could do better. Logan has never experienced real love, and he feels like he doesn't deserve it, will Clare be able to convince him otherwise?

I've had this book for a really long time on my kindle. I kept putting it off and reading other things, for some reason something kept me from reading it. Well let me say that I was missing out. This book was spectacular, it was the perfect romance novel. It was sweet, romantic, tragic, and healing. I loved the past that the characters experience because it was such a big part of establishing who they were and it was used a lot to show how they grew together. I'm finding it difficult to compliment a single aspect of the book because it wasn't just one thing that made it great, it was everything that made it perfection. So if you want to read the perfect romance (in my opinion) then I would read this book.

Angel Payne
USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on "swap stories" they'd trade between classes.

Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.
Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimedCimarron series. Temptation Court, a new series being launched through the Dark Nights Discovery project, debuts in 2016.
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
