Ready for Love is book four in the Wilkersons in Love series. In this installment, we meet Jeremy Wilkerson, still mourning his wife and raising his daughter. He has convinced himself that one-night stands and no string affairs are all he needs because he is not looking to replace his wife.
In steps Alejandra Moore, a colleague, who is not interested in long-term relationships. She enters into an arrangement with Jeremy that spirals into something both never expected to happen. These two must come to terms with their feelings and realize they can find love that heals and last a lifetime.
The storyline was interesting in that the readers see how Alejandra and Jeremy’s relationship started as colleagues that eventually lead to an affair that ended once he left the company.
A couple of years later, Alejandra’s company is in trouble and her brother asks Jeremy to come back to assist with getting the company back on track. Jeremy realizes there was more to his and Alejandra’s brief affair and the two share a night but an occurrence leads these two on a journey where Alejandra must try to breach the wall around Jeremy’s heart and get him to open up about his wife and learn to love again.
This was my first read by Ms. Kelly and it was an interesting story. There were times when some parts of the storyline was not flowing; however, my interest was still piqued to find out the outcome of the story. Ms. Kelly did a good job developing Jeremy’s character and allowing the reader to see Jeremy’s struggle to not love again but his feelings for Alejandra were there. He was rusty in trying to show his affection. With the aid of his siblings, Jeremy realizes he must open his heart and allow Alejandra in, but is he too late? Readers will need to read Ready for Love to find out.
