NEVER BEEN READY
By J.L. Berg
Adult Contemporary Romance
Released February 4, 2014
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 destroy their one chance to discover true happiness? 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 wiped my eyes from the tears and had to cover my mouth from giggling so loud – yes while I was reading all night! I fell in love with Declan and Leah from page 1. A famous Hollywood actor – Declan meets Leah – a wonderful small town delivery nurse. Well, what Declan thought could be another one night stand (since he only slept with women once), completely blew up his entire theory that he had lived by. “People were essentially selfish, and when it came down to it, we would always chose to love ourselves first.” Yes, Declan even had a symbol tattooed on his chest that reflected that sentiment. When he thought of Leah, he was lost with out her. He must find her again. He could not get Leah out of his. I loved the soul searching that took place between the two of them. I was floored by the event that happened at the hospital in the beginning of the story. It was such a fabulous and out of left field how important that little detail was to the rest of the story. Bravo for JL Berg!! Loved the surprise!! Amazing!
