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 the first novel in the Wingmen series, a spin-off from Modern Love Stories. Though the Wingmen books are interconnected, each works as a standalone with no cliffhanger.
Earlier this year, I reviewed Anything but Love by Daisy Prescott, which is the third book in the Wingmen series. I enjoyed the book so much that I knew I wanted to go back and read books one and 2. So today I have my review of the first book in the Wingman Series, Ready to Fall. The Wingmen series is a group of interconnected romantic comedies that can each be read as standalones. Ready to Fall made me want a lumberjack, and I didn’t think that phrase would ever be coming out of my mouth. But it sure is true. I will take a John day, any day. Daisy Prescott does a fantastic job with romantic comedies. I think her books will be perfect for fans of Penny Reid, and you all know how much I love Penny Reid.
What I loved most about Ready to Fall, is that it is told from John’s point of view. Yes, an all male point of view romantic comedy. Why are there not more of these? I felt for John. He is such a great guy. Yes, he is a playboy but he seemed so difference from Erik in book 3, Anything but Love. Erik seemed like more of a manwhore, and john seemed more of a guy that wasn’t ready to settle down but had moreso be lied to and wronged in his past. Can you tell how much I love John, by how I am already defending him. He is the kind of guy you picture showing up and saving you/sweeping you off o f your feet. No matter how much he may not think so, John makes a perfect hero. I liked Diane, his love interest, as well, but John just stole the show for me. I loved watching the two of them dance around each other, never quite making a move. It was great to have sweet couple to root for. Once again, I think this book would make a great movie. Maybe someone could take all four of the books in the wingman series, and make like a Love, Actually or Valentine’s Day mash up of the stories and we could watch them all play out at once?I also wouldn’t mind all of them being turned into their own movies or the guys getting their own show. (Either way, someone make it happen!)
Bottom line: Ready to Fall is a solidly great book. The writing is top notch, the characters are relatable, and likeable. And the story line will have you laughing. I am a new (newly huge) fan of Daisy’s. I just love her writing. She writes fantastically delicious tension, and her humor is spot on. And I know this has nothing to do with the story, but I also love that her bio says she lives in a real life Stars Hollow. I want to visit! Check this one out if you like romantic comedies, and books like Penny Reid. (and yes, I said that in my last review too, but it is still true!) If you have never read a Daisy Prescott book, you need to fix that ASAP! Trust me.
