Release Date: December 14, 2013
Genre: Small Town Romance
Actual Rating: 4 stars
I had the pleasure of meeting Daisy Prescott at an author event last year and picked up this book (well, the entire series) because it seemed like a fun read. Thankfully, I was right in my assumptions! Ready to fall is a cute book. The story follows two neighbors who grow fond of one another after spending some time together. The story takes place on a quaint island, has a bearded lumberjack hero, and a divorcee heroine. The two are total opposites if you take in their lifestyles, but couldn't fit more together had they come from the same place. I love how the author wrote their love story- it just worked really well and felt right. The novel doesn't have unnecessary drama (yay), is low on angst, and is sexy as hell! This is NOT erotica, but the sex scenes are steamy. All in all, it's just a really fun book, one I wouldn't mind being a part of if it were real life, and am really looking forward to the rest of the books in the series.
My only complaint about this novel is the fact that there were hardly any secondary characters. We meet two people who we are able to get to know a tiny bit, but the story doesn't involve them as much as I would have liked. For me, I like seeing friendships and other connections besides a relationship within the story and this was lacking in Ready to Fall. Other than this I have no complaints! It's a cute, solid read.
This book would be perfect for readers who enjoy:
▶ Lumberjack heroes
▶ Beards and Brawn
▶ Love after divorce romances
▶ Small town romances.
▶ Opposites attract
▶ Neighbors to lovers
▶ Outdoorsy novels (camping, fishing, etc.)
PS: This is the first book in the series but each book can stand alone.
