The more they get to know each other, the deeper this unlikely pair falls. But Ransom doesn’t know everything, and when Taylor’s past comes calling, they’ll only have each other to depend on.
Ready or Not is a captivating romance by an amazing duo, Elizabeth Hayley! This series just continues to get better and better.
Taylor Peterson is looking for a fresh start. She has been through it and wants to prove to her family and herself that she can survive on her own. So, she decides to continue her college courses online and live near her friends that have quickly turned into family.
Ransom Holt is the sexy, mysterious man who is new to the friend group. He has a heartbreaking past and rarely opens up to anyone about it. He is finding his way among his friends and job and for the first time in a long time, he can say that he is content.
Taylor and Ransom don’t know each other too well and she has always pushed him away because deep down she knows that he is someone that she could easily fall for. But when Ransom helps her with a new job at Safe Haven. It’s a program for kids that allows them to participate and interact with others while they wait for their parents. This place is so good for both of them. They not only get to know each other better but every interaction with a child helps their heart heal a little bit more.
I loved Ransom and Taylor’s story. They both have a few secrets that will surprise you and make you root for them more. Elizabeth Hayley broke my heart and continuously pieced it back together. It was great to see two broken characters find their way and happiness. Of course, this writing duo added their signature humor and sarcasm that helped ease the pain and it was the perfect combination.
I give Ready or Not 5 stars. I swear I say this after I read each book in this series, but this book was my favorite. I swooned, I shed a few tears, and I was left wanting more especially after that cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
