A wonderful addition to The Love Game series! Ready or Not is a book you won't be able to put down until the very end, and even then you'll want to binge-read the series all over again. Elizabeth Hayley is an amazing writing duo that knows just how to draw the reader in with entertaining characters, and just a hint of suspense. You'll definitely be coming back for more!

Ransom and Taylor are acquaintances via mutual friends, and each is mildly attracted to the other but have yet to make a move. 

Taylor Peterson is taking a break from men. Actually, she’s hiding from a stalker and only her best friend Sophia knows this, but even Sophia doesn’t know the full story. Taylor is also stepping out on her own for the first time. With her father not happy with the decision she’s made in how to finish her degree, she’s not responsible for completely supporting herself financially. She’s managed to secure a place to live but needs additional employment. The last person she expected to come to her rescue was Ransom. Working closely with Ransom, has given Taylor an opportunity to see him in a completely different light.

Ransom Holt has lived a rough life. His mom was an addict, and as a kid he was bounced around throughout the foster care system. He’s never really had anyone have his back before, until he was sent to his final foster home with The Holt’s. The more time he spends with Taylor the more he realizes why she keeps people at a distance. Just like Taylor, Ransom has secrets of his own. He’s suffered heartbreak in the past, now he has to decide if Taylor is worth the risk 

I liked Ransom a lot, for someone who’s been through what he’s been through, he has a pretty positive outlook on life. He also has a heart of gold and it’s huge. There were so many moments in this book that tugged at my heart for him. I was not a fan of Taylor at all. Every time I decided I really hated her; she would do something that had me thinking she wasn’t so bad. Every time she did something that had me thinking she wasn’t so bad; she’d do something to make me hate her. Dealing with her was rollercoaster. I especially was not a fan of how she treated Ransom. Even after he was repeatedly there for her, she still treated him like he was an airhead. I understand her hesitancy towards relationships after her recent bad breakup and dealing with her stalker, but she just took it to far at times. Thankfully the story was told from duel PoV and not just Taylor’s, otherwise we’d totally miss the greatness of Ransom. Although, I will admit, the way his PoV was written, he did sometimes make himself seem a little less than intelligent (I kept picturing Kevin, from Shameless). 

This was a quick read, and overall was pretty good. The pace was a little off to me at times, but for the most part I enjoyed it. This is the fourth book in a series. While you can probably read this without the three previous books, I’d suggest reading them. All of the characters from the previous books are mentioned and their backgrounds are given but to me, you understand them better if you’ve read the other books. Spoiler Alert….this book ends with a cliffhanger. If you’re not a fan of cliffhangers, I suggest waiting until book number five, “Let’s Not Say We Did”, is released.

Taylor is facing some difficulty both when it comes to her past and her family but the one thing that she does have going for her is the great group of friends she has surrounded herself with.     When she needed help she didn’t think that Ransom would be the one to step up to the plate and she begins to realize that there is much more to the man than she believed.

Ramson learnt from a young age that the only person he could count on was himself but rather than closing himself off he has chosen to help those who need it the most.    The more time that he and Taylor spend together the closer they become but will they be able to trust each other with their hearts and their past?

I enjoyed seeing the relationship between Taylor and Ramson unfold and after the cliffhanger I am looking forward to seeing where their story goes.

Taylor moved to escape a stalker.  Unfortunately he has found her again.  On the plus side, she has her best friend, Sophia, and Sophia’s friends too.  Ransom, one of the friends, helps her get a job and would like to be more than friends.
This book is the fourth in a series that is best read in order.
You will find yourself laughing and crying at different points in this book.  Elizabeth Hayley have a great style that will bring out the feels in you.  Altogether, the book has a nice flow with a group of characters I’d love to be friends with in real life.
Many thanks to Net Galley and Waterhouse Press for providing me with an ARC of this book.

Disclaimer: I got this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for a copy of this book. A full review will be up on on June 2nd.

This is an enemies to lovers book Taylor and Ransom are also complete opposites which is a plus, in my opinion. If you're a fan of witty banter, you'll love this!
