Born into wealth and privilege, free-spirited Liv Quinn left it all behind when she realized there was more to life than living off of trust funds and barely skating by. Since then, she’s worked and fought for everything she’s earned and never looked back at the world or the family she left behind.
Jackson Reid is starting over with a new job in a brand new city. A single father to his son Noah, he hopes the change will help strengthen the bond that has seemed to suffer since puberty reared its ugly head. What he hadn’t planned on was Liv—his exotic next-door neighbor who drives him insane with her wild, new age lifestyle, but still manages to leave him aching for more.
As challenges arise and feelings intensify, will these neighbors be able to look past their differences and find a middle ground? When love comes knocking, will they be ready, or not?

I absolutely loved Ready or Not. It was a fun read and I had some true laugh out loud moments. Liv is a free spirited new “hippie” who doesn’t really care what others think of her. Because of the way she was brought up, she tends to run the opposite direction of love and is happy to be the godmother to her best friends baby. She doesn’t need a man and a family to make her happy in life. She works as a counselor – mostly to kids, so she gets her fill.
Jackson is looking for a fresh start and a change. But with a new job, new city and a tween to handle, he’s not sure he’s doing a bang up job in the matter. After spending an afternoon with the counselor, he sees that things aren’t as bad as it seems...meaning he won’t have to bring Noah back to see the cute counselor as much as he thought he would. Or will he?
The fun begins when Liv figures out that the “hot” dad of Noah is her new next door neighbor. Things don’t start off in the best way, and the fun starts there.
I loved Noah and his budding relationship with Liv. And Jackson is seriously hot!
Even though this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone.
