Ready or Not

The Ready Series

Book 4
J.L. Berg

From the moment he moved in...It was hate at first sight. 
As a plant-loving homeowner, I take particular pride in my gardens. So, when I came home to find several of my flower beds trampled by my new next door neighbor, sparks flew.
And not in the sexy sort of way.
Jackson Reid was everything I hate in a man. He’s rude and overbearing — and did I mention he’s a lawyer? 
He’s also a single dad and soon I began to see, behind all that arrogance, he’s also incredibly patient and caring. In fact, many of the things I hated about him melt away and I’m left, not just liking him.
I think I might be falling for him too. 
But, like most adult relationships, we both came with a past and Jackson’s baggage may destroy more than our budding love affair if we’re not careful. 
Being neighborly just got a whole lot more complicated...

 **New Adult Romance - contains sexual references suitable for mature audiences only**
*** Be Warned - you will not find love, light and happiness on these pages. Instead, you will find raw human emotion as a life is steadily destroyed by those who are forever willing to take advantage. 

It is advised that readers are over 18 when they read this book as it portrays sex acts and drug use. This is not for the faint of heart. 

Early reviewers call Phoenix 'A deep, painful, and poignant tale'. Further commenting 'You know when you pick up a book and take a couple of deep breaths preparing yourself because you know it's going to be a dark story to read? That's how I felt walking into Phoenix'.

While Phoenix is a part of Anderson's 'Beautiful Series' it may be read on it's own as it leads directly into 'A Beautiful Forever' ****

After being unceremoniously kicked out of home at a young age, Paige is forced to fend for herself. 

In a bid to survive, she does things that most people would never dream of, and stops caring about herself as a result. 

When the fastest way to get food and shelter is to use her body, and the fastest way to forget is to self medicate, Paige embarks on a steady downward spiral. Until, finally she hits rock bottom...

In A Beautiful Forever we got to know Paige as she battled the demons of her past to move forward with her future and find her happy ever after. Now, in Phoenix, we get to see the moments those demons were created and how she managed to get her life back on track.

***Beautiful Series***
A series of stand alone novels and companions novellas (The Beauty in Between). Each Beautiful Series novel follows many variations on the love triangle, where one couple gets their happy ending, and the character who misses out becomes the main character in the next instalment. 

The Beauty in Between are companion novellas that give fans of the main series background information on some of their favourite characters, or a short continuation of a couple's story. 

Readers can choose to read every book and its companion in order, or they can choose only those that interest them. 

For those wishing to read the series entirely, there is an easy to refer to reading order below -
