When you fall, you fall hard...

Readers first fell in love with John Day as the hot next-door neighbor in Romantic Comedy Best Seller Geoducks Are for Lovers. Tall, dark, and handsome is an understatement. With the beard, a dog named Babe, and his ever present plaid shirt, John is a modern 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. When an ex shows up unexpectedly, their lives will be changed forever.

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 romance/romantic comedy told in male POV.

My Review:

I will have to say that Contemporary is slowly but surely becoming  one of my favorite genres. There is something something about real life situations that one can relate to and completely get wrapped in. But I believe there are so many different classes of Contemporary that it is almost unfair to class them all together. 

Ready to Fall is one of those contemporaries that is in a class among it's own. When I first received the tour invite from the lovely ladies at The Novel Tease, I was amused by the synopsis and was eager to give it a read. I knew I would enjoy it, but I didn't think I would be the type of book to have me laughing out loud and keeping me smiling all the way through.  

When initially I saw that this main character was a lumberjack, I had to chuckle. I mean I'm from California and the author herself is originally from California. Do we even have that profession here?  But last year I had read a book where the lead character was a Ranch manager and I adored that book as well. Maybe that is saying something about my choice of men? HMMM! 

This book had what I am always looking for: originality. Another reviewer on Goodreads wrote something that I have to completely agree with. What made this book so enjoyable was that for the first time in a long time, this book was just a pure fun romance. There was no forbidden or tortured love. Yes, those books are fun to read, but once in a while it is nice to have a book that is so entertaining and well written that it does not need that. And that book for me was READY TO FALL.

I absolutely loved the that it was in John's perspective and completely in his voice. It gives the reader a new dynamic that we are not used to and one that I'm glad more and more authors are starting to partake in. Diane was also a fun character to read about. So many of the things that came out of her mouth are things I believe I would say in her situation. But in honesty it was John that stole this book for me!  I haven't read the 1st book in this companion series, but I will definitely be getting my hands on it!


Speaking with her mouth full, she mumbled, “Meese are smoo goob.”
“Meese? Goob?” I repeated while attempting to translate in my head.
She held up a finger and finished chewing. My eyes focused on her mouth while she licked the syrup off her fingers. “I said these are so good. I never figured you for a man who could cook.”
“Pancakes aren’t cooking. I use the box stuff.” I shrugged. “My cooking abilities are limited. Trust me.”
“No need to get defensive. Not calling your masculinity into question. Certainly not after last night.”
I smirked at her. “Don’t forget this morning.”
She lowered her eyes to her plate and swirled her finger through the pool of syrup. “Oh, I haven’t forgotten.” Her tongue licked the tip of her finger before she sucked the tip into her mouth.
“Fuck.” My cock twitched.
“What?” she asked innocently, but her motives were splashed across her face.
“You know exactly what.”
“What are you going to do about it?” A giggle burst from her mouth in a whoosh when I picked her up off the stool and lifted her onto the counter. “Oh, well then, carry on …”
I lowered my mouth to hers. She tasted of syrup and bacon and her—the perfect combination. Her chin was sticky with sweetness, so I licked it.
“You smell of syrup. I think it’s my new favorite scent.” I moved down her neck to kiss the skin peeking out from my shirt she wore. “Mmm … it’s my new favorite taste, too.” I kissed her again. And again.

About 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.
