Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood’s new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn’t hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought.
Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn’t walk away.
When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities tear them apart? When Declan’s past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead?
It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do.
I was given an ARC of Never Been Ready for any Honest Review by the author.
The story of one man and one woman who will touch you in so many ways. Hold on tight because this emotional, tear-jerking story with a life altering change will blow you away.
On the night Declan James meets Leah Morgan, him and his friend Logan Matthews, enter a bar. They are trying to keep a low profile because Declan is a Hollywood film star and he really doesn't want to be seen. Logan see's his girlfriend Clare with Leah and they head over to them. Declan is overwhelmed with Leah's beauty. One thing leads to another and now after six months he can't get her out of his head.
When Declan returns to Richmond to direct and be in a film, his first stop is to go see Leah. He thinks maybe he'll see her and get her out of his system. This is not going to happen the way he planned it. Leah kicks him out of her place. If anything happens it will be on her terms.
When temporary turns out to be more, are they ready? Leah is dealing with some demons and does not let anyone in. When Declan finds out, he does anything to help and protect her. What will happen? Be prepared because you will love it and get ready, there are so many wonderful moments with Clare, Logan and Maddie (from When You’re Ready).
Never Been Ready is a must read, very spicy book. With lines like, “It was only supposed to be one night, but with Leah in my arms...only forever would do.” or “She was my world, my beginning and end, and she had shown me everything I never thought I wanted.” how can it not be? J.L. Berg has done it again. If you thought When You're Ready was an emotional read, wait until you read this one.
