Can his love mend the pieces of her grieving heart?
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.
Logan Matthews is the son of a billionaire who has spent his entire life trying to make his absent father proud. Years of living up to a man who was more ghost than father, and a publicly failed marriage has left Logan cold and emotionless until he walks into an exam room and discovers a woman who can stop his heart, make his body burn with desire and leave his entire world altered.
But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? 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 never know if you are truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.
A story to fill a lifetime of love and living every day to the fullest. That is how I would describe When You’re Ready.
The story characters’ were well developed. The story starts out great with a glimpse of a husband in the midst of life’s disasters. How do you say goodbye, especially when you’re the one that is forced to leave? How to you allow someone to be released when they are your lifeline?
My favorite in the story was Maddie. She brought love to everyone’s heart. Can she teach Logan that he can love? She was such an innocent yet brave little girl. Here was a four year old that could take a complicated moment and make it simple. That is what she did for both her mom and Logan.
Logan was fantastic. How he took care of Clare and Maddie, and made me fall in love with him over and over. He also respected Clare’s life with her deceased husband. That made him top notch in my book.
I think that When You’re Ready handled grief beautifully. I really enjoyed reading this book.
