Oh man can covers be deceiving! And so can forgetting what you read in the summary 😅 but oh boy I thought this was going to be a lighted hearted cute novel, instead I got an anxiety on the edge of my seat steamy romance!

Veronica does trust men at all. She is independent as they come and an adventurer, but she has a habit of running from things, which lands her in a cave with Sam who is so sweet and kind and thoughtful and everything you want in a guy. I absolutely loved him and my heart broke f

5 stars 🏃🏼‍♀️💨 What about...getting stuck in a pitch-black dark cave system without any resources with a complete stranger? 🤔 Where neither person can physically see the other and must rely on speaking to get to know the other and escape?

This book deserves every single 5 stars it has received. I've never read a setting like that in romance before and it was so unique! 🤌 Such vivid details all over the pages I could feel the cave's rocks digging on my knees. Not having read the blurb made this b

A fantastic romcom adventure
5 stars

I adored the first book in this series, Chasing Romeo, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book about Veronica, Chloe from the first book’s best friend. Each book stands completely alone but you’ll definitely want to check out Chasing Romeo at some point as it’s an absolute hoot! And this book is just as much of a delight!

Psychic octogenarian, Aunt Erma, has never been wrong with her love predictions but Veronica refuses to believe that odious billion

A visceral book that had my heart pounding and my blood racing numerous times. This wasn't a typical Sarah Ready book that had me snort laughing, instead I was turning pages so fast that I completely devoured this thing in just a couple hours because I had to make sure this couple survived their adventure AND fell in love!

We are back in the small town of Romeo where soulmates run supreme and the psychic matchmaker, Aunt Erma, has a very high track record of predicting everlasting love. Veronica

Psychic matchmaker, Aunt Erma, strikes again with her soul mate prediction for her niece Chloe's best friend, Veronica Diaz. Aunt Erma may have a 100% success rate, but Veronica lives her life with the resolute belief that there are two kinds of men: players and wannabe players.

When Veronica finds out her soul mate is the King of Players, Fredrick Knight, a man splashed all over media with countless women on his arm, it's definitely loathe at first sight. But when she gets lost in a dark cave wi

Oh my what a read. What would you do if you followed a stranger into a cave only to make sure they were safe? What would you do if you and that stranger have to depend on each other to survive? Well fate put Veronica and Sam right in that path with out either knowing. Thus book reminds me of dating in the dark but with a few twist of course.

Your going to love how this book reads and yes its second in the series but your still going to love the read even if you start with this one. Kinda like h

I thought this would be your usual small-town romance. Two people meet because the guy needed to get away from the city. I wasn't banking on Veronica and Sam falling in love while they were stuck in a cave during a hike-gone-wrong. And without even seeing each other's face at that.

Their story is pretty fast-paced but it works. I loved it. I loved it even more with how their story goes. I liked their storyline a lot. As I said, it's not your usual reformed hero getting away from the public eye an

Amazing - Page- Turning Adventure and Rom-Com all-in-one!

This book has everything - adventure, mistaken identity, enemies to lovers, warm friendships, and well-written deep characters with flaws who are able to grow! I couldn't put it down and just loved how Sam and Veronica could be real, caring, and open in the dark to get through their scary situation but once they were rescued reality and fear stepped back in. But they both grew from the experience and I enjoyed that part of the book as well

Sarah Ready simply writes amazing stories. She gives us emotionally charged stories with realistic characters that have insecurities and vulnerabilities that will have you empathizing with them as they work their way to their happy ending.

Veronica is jaded, and she has good reasons for being that way, but when Aunt Edna the psychic soulmate predictor comes to tell Veronica what she has seen, to say she wasn’t open to it would be an understatement.

This is a story of self acceptance and awareness

Aunt Erma strikes again! I loved this book as much as the first book in the series and it was completely different. Unlike Chloe in book 1, Veronica wants nothing to do with love. She’s been damaged from events in her past and when Erma comes to call about her soulmate, Veronica runs. Frederick, aka Sam, is acting out a life that’s not true to who he really is and, in fact, that life is word for word exactly what Veronica does not want for herself. The problem will be whether Veronica can accept ...more

Another one knocked out of the park! This book is so fun to read. Veronica and Sam meet one another while lost in a cave. They truly need each other to survive. Mix that in with Veronica's upbringing, and the fact the local fortune teller has revealed Veronica's soul mate. This is one fun ride! Really enjoyed this and love the way Veronica and Sam were so honest with one another! Rooting for Sam from the beginning! ...more

I loved it!I read it in one go!Such a heartwarming and easy read! Loved the storyline and the characters. Even though the story takes a bit of a serious turn and deals with some of the real life issues, which I found very touching,it still has plenty humorous scenes.I really like Sarah Ready's writing style and her witty humour.

Can't wait for the next book!

The Masks We Wear . . .

When a psychic matchmaker tells Veronica Diaz that her fated soulmate is Frederick Knight, the man who tops the “players” list, she won’t even risk a chance meeting with the obnoxious man. She considers ALL men fall into one of two categories, absolute players and wanna-be players. Neither is acceptable! So she runs.

Fate puts Veronica in a pitch-black cave, trapped with an unknown man. Yet Veronica and Sam’s struggle for survival brings them closer as they talk about their

I'm liking this series and was pleasantly surprised by the scenario here.

Veronica is an adventure girl - and not ready to settle down with a player. She already knows what one looks like and tells you about her experiences with her father. When Aunt Erma announces that she's predicted who Veronica's "soul mate" is, she goes running and avoids her for two weeks until she's cornered and it's revealed that Frederick Knight, aka the NYC playboy billionaire, she wants nothing to do with him and she

3.5-4 stars. Veronica Diaz is convinced that love is a weakness and wants no part of it. So when her soulmate is revealed and he's coming to her hometown soon, what's a girl to do but obviously run away? Turns out that Veronica can't escape from fate. Sam, aka Frederick Knight, aka Veronica's soulmate, has done some soul searching of his own to reclaim his true self. He wants a fresh start from his outer media persona and winds up stuck in a cave with Veronica. With no light to guide them or to ...more

Love Not at First Sight by Sarah Ready is the second book of the Soul Mates in Romeo series, a collection of stand-alone contemporary romance novels set in Romeo, NY, the official town of love. I flew through this book in the matter of an evening. I couldn't put it down. This novel may be short on pages, but it's big on impact. My emotions ran the gambit from laughing to holding my breath to weeping in dismay to crying tears of joy.

Sarah Ready is a relatively new author to me. I found Love Not At First Sight an entertaining story that ticked a lot of boxes for me.
This is Veronica Diaz and Frederick Knight (aka Sam)’s story. When a psychic predicts the man of her dreams is Frederick Knight, an absolute player, a man that she has met and disliked on sight, Veronica is determined to avoid him at all cost.
However fate often works in mysterious ways and when Veronica and Sam land themselves in a heap of trouble at the bottom

Love Not at First Sight by Sarah Ready is book 2 in the Soul Mates in Romeo Series. I have to say I was intrigued from the beginning. Vee refused to believe that her soulmate was someone she couldn’t get away from. It was so funny how she followed him right into the cave without even knowing who he was. Sarah kept me guessing what would happen next and how would Vee feel when she found out her soulmate was none other than the man she is trapped with. It was an emotional ride.

First I loved the book . The writer did it again . She wrote one amazing story . When it is your destiny to meet your soulmate whatever you wish and want it will happen . She loathes him because of his playboy image and runs away so she will avoid him . He is acting like the player but that is just a image he use because of the betrayal of two people of his past . When they meet and because they are in total dark they have to trust each other for their survival . They each find their other half ...more

After loving the joy that was Chasing Romeo, I was excited to return to Romeo, New York with Love Not at First Sight . It was nice to catch up with Chloe and Nick after the first novel ended and to read a new story focusing on Chloe’s best friend and business partner, Veronica. She is not interested in love as she believes there are only two types of men in the world, players and wanna-be players, which all started with her parents’ rocky relationship. She is not interested when Chloe’s Aunt ...more

This is the second book in Sarah Ready’s Soul Mates in Romeo Series. I absolutely adored Chasing Romeo so was excited to read about Veronica.

Miss Erma, Romeo’s resident soulmate finder/matchmaker, can just keep Veronica’s soul mate’s name to herself. But when Veronica’s soulmate comes to Romeo - and is none other than billionaire playboy Frederick Knight - Veronica knows she will do anything to avoid running into him.

LOL--once again I didn't read the entire book blurb before choosing to read a book (I got to "she runs" and went, sure, this sounds cute CLICK) so imagine my surprise when our hero and heroine spent the majority of the book lost within an extensive cave system, fearing for their very lives...unable to see each other's faces and unaware of the other's last names...it was more of a survival story than a rom com, but that's OK.

Surprises are fun, right? ;) At least in this instance it worked out, an
