Book Review – Ready to Fall by Daisy Prescott

Ready to Fall by Daisy Prescott and is the first book in the Wingmen series. The whole story was taken from the hero’s POV so I find it quite interesting getting to know his thoughts and what he feels during each scenes. Overall, the story was good but it just wasn’t enough to make me love it.

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.

After his favorite neighbor rents out her beach 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 go back to his old, flirty ways?

Hold onto your heart as John Day tells his story in this male POV contemporary adult romance/romantic comedy.


Ready to Fall is a pretty decent read. If I have to describe it in one word, I think it would be charming. I love how their relationship started and how it blossomed. I know the setup is a bit cliché but I’m glad that the author really took the time to let the main characters get to know each other (and let us get to know them too) and not just after the first meeting, poooof! they just magically fell in love. Ofcourse love at first sight could be possible, but it’s good to have something new in your romance story once in a while right?

I also didn’t notice any scenes that we’re done in a hurry and reading this book feels like I am listening to a friend of mine telling his love story. And yep, this story was taken from the hero’s POV. I usually love dual POVs but once in a while, I also like to read a story where it was taken solely from the guy’s POV especially if it’s romance, *wink.

As for the conflict, hmmm, not sure what to think about it actually. Both the main characters have their own set of issues and since Diane (female lead) was in the island waiting for the finalization of her messy divorce, I was expecting that she’s the first one to crack. I was expecting her running away from John (male lead) because she’s afraid to fall in love again and get hurt but it’s the other way around. Good thing the drama wasn’t stretched that long and the two of them eventually talked it out and made up. It’s also good that they both able to address their own issues, especially John.

This story consists of romantic, sexy, and funny scenes which I think were perfectly blended together. The writing style was fine but can’t say if it’s one of my favorites. Overall, Ready to Fall is a pretty good read but it just wasn’t able to make me stay awake at night and suffer from a book hangover.
