Ready+to+runBook: Ready to Run

Series: I do, I don’t #1

Author: Lauren Layne

Release date: 22 August 2017

Main characters: Jordan Carpenter,  TV producer hoping to convince Luke Elliott to contribute to her firm’s new project. Luke Elliott, bachelor (not by choice) who seems to have an unfortunate habit of leaving his bride at the altar.

Plot: Jordan Carpenter lives a fabulous NY life. She’s successful and has a good head for her business: showbusiness. She’s trying to land the perfect guy to star in the upcoming reality show of the season, Jilted. She thinks she’s found the perfect candidate: one Luke Elliott. Something about his story intrigues the heck out of her. He’s backed out of not one wedding, but three in recent years, and somehow the town seems to still adore him. She wants her man and won’t take no for an answer…

Luke Elliott, local fireman and all-round good guy keeps his cards close to his chest. That’s why when Jordan crosses his path, he has no interest in being part of her crazy plan. His private life is his and he has no intention of becoming public property. He’s rude and surly to her, but Jordan has thicker skin that he gave her credit for. Nothing he does seems to deter her. She may well succeed in wearing him down, and the whole town of Lucky Hollow seems to love her too. Will Luke?

Why you should read it: This book was so good! It had banter, it had substance and was a real page turner. The chemistry between Jordan and Luke was undeniable and it built steadily. I loved how Jordan got under Luke’s skin. She’s sunny but not a walkover – and she’s the perfect balance to Luke’s acerbic tendencies. I could feel Lauren Layne’s enthusiasm for this new series – it’s inspired and I’m really excited to be meeting some new characters in a completely different setting.

What you may not like: Luke takes grouch to a whole new level. He’s so keen to protect himself that he really treats Jordan badly at times. She can take care of herself, but there really are some oh-no-he-didn’t-say-that moments that made me gape.

Rating: 4/5 for an exciting start to a new series, which is imaginative and has all the hallmarks of a Lauren Layne book that you’ll love!

Ready to Run is out today!
