Ready for You:

Their words bring them together.

Ready for you is a breath of fresh air it’s new and really something different that you don’t come a crossed now days. From the moment I read the summery I was hooked, it had everything I look for in a book romance, comedy, mystery and a real voice for character details. The overall idea of two well know authors coming together to write a book is amazing but then them falling in love over Skype, text messaging and emails is a modern day love story fo

Ready For Love by D. Love and Madison Daniel

Rating 5*****

This book was provided from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

Since the death of her boyfriend several years ago, Penny has lived her life through her books. As an author she can create fictional world and even love. The world she writes in is safe and she has all the control, no way to get close to someone ever again. When she decides to co-author a novel with one of her author friends it may just shatter the safety net w

I really enjoyed this book. Unique and truly addicting. The collaboration bewtween authors D.Love and Madison Daniel was completely seamless. You couldn't tell where one author left off and the other began. I didn't want to put it down. The characters are charming and witty and made me laugh out loud on numerous occasions. I love when a book can tell a deep story, has plenty of suspense and just the right amount of humor. Ready For You has it all and then some.

I love author Madison Daniel's books and I love author D. Love's books so when I discovered that they co-wrote a book I knew that I must read it and that it would be without a doubt an amazing read! I was not disappointed at all by this story! I loved it right from the very start! The idea behind the story and the characters were amazing and as a fan of both authors I could see where their individual styles stood out. There was no doubt that Madison was behind the concerts (Imagine Dragons) and ...more

This book truly surprised me in a very positive way. It is a very refreshing story.

Author Penny Lane is still grieving the death of her boyfriend, five years have gone by but she's still living in the past and yearning the man she loved and lost. She started a friendship with a male author and she thinks a collaboration on a new book is just what she needs to get her out of her funk.

Wow, wow, wow. I must say that the intensity of this book blew me away. I still have chills running down my arm from all the excitement.

This was not just a story of two people in pain finding each other but it was also a thriller with a stalker dead set on keeping them a part.

I love how Penny and Kain were with each other. their distance actually brought them closer. With Penny in Virginia and Kain in Las Vegas they made working on their new book seem so simple.

I was provided an arc for an honest review.

I loved the uniqueness of this book. It was different and refreshing and kept you hanging on wanting to desperately read more.

Two broken souls lost in their own stories, brought together by fate.

Kain had just gone through the divorce of all divorces. His ex had destroyed all he had and accomplished, and his life was spiralling out of control. He was struggling with his work, his story lines were failing and now he was broke and broken.

This was a very enjoyable concept with pretty good execution! I really like both Penny & Kain, & also the dynamic of their best friends throughout the story! :)

Altho Penny & Kain are "apart" for 90% of the story, it doesn't feel like it. They are communicating through the whole story, and it doesn't make the physical distance seem like a big deal, story-wise. Which is saying something, since that is a plot device that usually annoys me. : ) Kain has a horribly evil ex-wife and Penny

Author Penny Lane decides to collaborate and co-author a book with Kain Brooks. This new spin may be just what she needs or maybe what they both need. When feelings heighten a long overdue morning for the death of her fiance things come to a head.

Kain wasn't sure the partnership was such a good idea at first, but quickly changes his mind and realizes just how easy it is to dive into the project with Penny. He soon realizes this is much more than writing a book with Penny.

Penny Lane is an accomplished author, she has the career she loves but her life has been one of solitude. For the last year her and Kain Brooks have been messaging and face-booking each other. Now she has the ultimate idea. She wants her and Kain to collaborate on a book together.

Kain Brooks should have it all. He is an award winning author, his book has been made into a TV series but his blood sucking ex wife has taking everything from him including his dog and his last credit card. The only hi

Ready for You by D. Love & Madison Daniel is a contemporary romance with a mystery/thriller component. The story is about two authors who fall in love as they collaborate on a book. But there is a crazy stalker who isn't too happy about their collaboration.
The story is well-written and it is obvious that Ms. Love & Mr. Daniel worked well together. The plot is interesting and had romance as well as some action. The stalker storyline also added some mystery to the plot.

Penny steps out of her comfort zone as an author and asks Kain to write a book with her. Although it's been several years, she still mourns Zach, the love of her life. Kain is broke and on the edge of a breakdown due to his divorce. His ex-wife has taken everything and is wanting more from him. Writing a book with sexy and successful Penny will be just what he needs to recover. Writing together saves more than his finances and her broken heart. It also nearly kills them both.

This was a really enjoyable story. I've not read anything by either of these authors so this was a great surprise. I find it amazing that two authors can get together and write such a brilliant story.

In this story Penny and Kain, two authors, get together online to write a story. This storyline is brilliant and so unique. As an avid reader I was delighted to read about what goes on in an authors head.

Such a great idea for a book. A man and a woman writing a book about a man and woman writing a book!

While it was a little hard for me to get into, I'm so very glad I stuck with it!

You'll not only get a great deal of romance but you'll get some suspense and mystery thrown in there as well - a winning combo for sure.

Both characters are a lil broken - Kain is newly divorced from a woman who wrecked him and Penny still mourns the loss of her fiance. They find friendship first, then companionship, a

Penny Lane is a book addict. It all started after the death of her boyfriend a few years back.
She turned to books to help her survive. Then she became an author. She found she could write a ficitonal world that suited her.
This book was a great read. Considering two authors were writing together the flow of the book was smooth. The characters were well written and I found the plot to be unique in it's own right. The book was a fast read with just the right amount of love, mystery and happiness in

When Penny and Kain collaborate to write a novel together a lot more emerges then a a great novel.
But not everyone is happy about their union and have made it very clear this will be their last book.

Soon feelings are more than platonic when Penny and Kain can't seem to thinks about their next on line meeting.

A beautifully written love and suspenseful novel by D. Love and Madison Daniel.
Love and Daniels have joined together to create a modern day fairy tale.

Go grab it & Happy Reading.

So I finished reading this book last night and have to tell you that I was enthralled by the story line. The truth is when you meet someone in a moment where you need them most, a connection happens. Not always does it become romantic but when it does, it can last a life time.

Ready for You is a beautiful story that deals with heart ache from past loves and healing but with a dose of suspense! A lovely collaboration between D. Love and Madison Daniel and look forward until their next one.

Finding Love Again

Ready For You is full of mystery and suspense, but it is more importantly a story about healing and finding love again after a great loss. People cross your path for many different reasons in life, some for support, some for friendship, some to teach you lessons that need to be learned. Then, there are people whose paths are meant to join with yours on a beautiful journey. This book will show you that love is endless.

This book was just perfect, a lovely romance, soul mate deep, and to take the sweetness off it there is also the mystery of who wants the two main characters dead. I normally suss out who the perp is when I read a book like this, but I didn't have the slightest idea of who it was this time. It made for an exciting read, and I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it. I definitely recommend it!

Penny and Kain have such emotional issues that they have to work on to go forward with their lives. However, the compilation of their co-written book pulls them closer together until someone has threatened their happiness. Read. This is a fantastic book that will keep you guessing and rooting for these couples to work out their differences and walk away in their HEV.
It was a short book, but everything you need in a good book has been covered.
I really liked the romance between Penny and Kain, how their feelings grow and how they come to realize they love each other. I loved the character and the chemistry between the two of them.

Why only 2 stars? What I didn't like was how everything escalated at some point of the plot. The revelation of the identity of the crazy stalker was too much rushed, the insanity from chapters 25 to 29 left me speechless. I was a bit disappointed by the ending.
