About READY OR NOT
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?

My Ready or Not Review...
Let's start with I absolutely love this series and it is one of my favorites for sure but I unfortunately didn't love this book as much as the others in the series. It had all the elements which I liked from the others but I didn't feel the deep connection as much, because everything escalated too quickly.
Liv the free spirited friend meets a hot dad of one of child patients then all of a sudden he's her jerk neighbor, where there was supposed to be tons of fire and water angst but it went from hot guy to angst to dating way to quickly to feel the chemistry brewing between the two. Then as the start dating their love went from 0 to 300 as quickly. I'm all for love at first site but with this there was supposed to be a buildup with the characters but since it was so fast it lost the depth of the connection between them for me. Besides that, I adored the story line and all the other elements of the book.
Jackson just wants to start over fresh in a new town with his son Noah and the last thing he wants is to start something with someone who is a bit different. He has been there done that. What he wants to do is find the nice perfect charming neighbor next door type of girl instead. He does get the neighbor but she's wrapped in quite the different package then he intended.
Liv and Jackson may be polar opposites but the love of Noah pulls them together. Liv hasn't always has the best blood family so it's easier to have fun then settle down, but with Jackson its different from the beginning. There is an instant spark that grows to love and they quickly realize the true definition of what family really means. Like I said I did like this book just not as much as the others but I do LOVE the series.
