From the book:

When you fall, you fall hard... 

Tall, dark, and handsome is an understatement when it comes to John Day. With rugged good looks, his ever present plaid shirt, and a dog named Babe, John is a modern alpha male lumberjack in more ways than one. 

Lurking beneath the flannel and beard could be the heart of a romantic. Or is John a wolf in flannel clothing? 

After his favorite neighbor rents out her cabin for the winter, John finds himself playing fireman and tour guide to Diane Watson, a beautiful brunette with her own messy past and recent battle scars. 

Will he be ready to fall in love? Or will he fall back into his old, flirty ways? 

Hold onto your heart... and get ready to fall with John Day as he tells his story in this contemporary adult romance/romantic comedy told in male POV.

This is a spin-off from Geoducks Are for Lovers. It isn't necessary to read that novel first.

My review:

Daisy Prescott's debut novel, Geoducks are for Lovers, was so good that there was an element of skepticism from me about this book. Could she really do that again? Write a book that was so heartfelt, so real, that I couldn't put it down?

Oh, yes. Yes, yes, yes.

Prescott once again takes us outside the boundaries of the romance genre - she tells this story from John's point of view, which I found fascinating. Watching his transformation made me love him so much; he's a regular guy with regular thoughts. Perhaps that's what's so refreshing about this book. The characters are people who have real-life flaws. They're not thrown into extraordinary experiences. It's just life - told beautifully, hopefully, and, most of all, wonderfully.

Ready to Fall is real, grown-up sexy. John Day is a new kind of romance hero - he's compelling, down-to-earth, rugged and kind. He makes mistakes, figures out how to fix them, and learns from them. His gradual fall into love isn't something that happens across a room or in a heartbeat. It happens as it does to most people lucky enough to find someone special...

I strongly suggest you add Daisy Prescott to your list of trusted authors. Ready to Fall was just as well-written as Geoducks are for Lovers, and I have confidence that her next novel will not disappoint. She is now in my very select group of automatic pre-order authors.

All in all, I enjoyed this book. I read it straight through in a day, and I think it's a good use of your book money. It's on sale for less than $5 at all retailers, so go get yours. I don't think you'll regret it!

About the Author

Daisy Prescott

Before writing funny contemporary romances about adults, I dreamed of being an author while doing a lot of other things. Antiques dealer, baker, blue ribbon pie-maker, fangirl, freelance writer, gardener, pet mom and wife are a few of the titles I’ve acquired along the way.
Born and raised in San Diego, my husband and I currently live in a real life Stars Hollow in the Boston suburbs with our dog, Hubbell, and an imaginary house goat who remains nameless.
Ready to Fall, my second novel, features John Day, the hot, sexy neighbor in my debut novel Geoducks Are for Lovers. Both can be read as stand-alones. I’m busy writing my next novel, which will not feature any bivalves.
