Jordan Carpenter thinks she’s finally found the perfect candidate for Jilted, a new dating show about runaway grooms: firefighter Luke Elliott, a known player who’s left not one but three brides at the altar. The only problem? Luke refuses to answer Jordan’s emails or return her calls. Which is how she ends up on a flight to Montana to recruit him in person. It’s not Manhattan, but at least the locals in Lucky Hollow seem friendly . . . except for Luke, who’s more intense—and way hotter—than the slick womanizer Jordan expected.

Eager to put the past behind him, Luke has zero intention of following this gorgeous, fast-talking city girl back to New York. But before he can send her packing, Jordan’s everywhere: at his favorite bar, the county fair, even his exes’ book club. Annoyingly, everyone in Lucky Hollow seems to like her—and deep down, she’s starting to grow on him too. But the more he fights her constant pestering, the more Luke finds himself wishing that Jordan would kick off her high heels and make herself comfortable in his arms.

Ready to Run by Lauren Layne is another amazing book which I highly enjoyed!  I was completely captivated with this book, not putting it down until I finished it!  I spent my afternoon laughing and then yelling at the characters in the book!!

Jordan Carpenter is on the hunt for Luke Elliot.  Jordan works for a TV network who came up with an idea similar to the Bachelor, a show called Jilted, which will focus on runaway grooms. Tracking down Luke is not as easy as it seems but convincing him to do the show is making Jordan’s job even harder.

Luke Elliot, firefighter, all around good guy, and a sexy country boy, left 3 woman at the altar.  At least that’s what he’s let everyone believe.  When Jordan comes to town searching for him, Luke is instantaneously taken with the City Girl who is pushing his boundaries.  

With an entire town conspiring together against Jordan and Luke, will Jordan be able to get Luke on the show to find his one true love?  Or has Luke already found love in the most unlikely place?

I adored this story!  I love Jordan from page one and fell in love with Luke the moment he stepped onto the scene.  I enjoyed their chemistry, and their witty banter but when Luke got snarky with Jordan?  WOW!!  I just completely felt her heart breaking!!  

I was 100% drawn into this story and read the book in one sitting!  I had no intention of putting it down, it was wonderful!
