Title: Ready to Fall
Elementary school teacher and part-time librarian Sarah Mayhew has the perfect plan: show off her cycling skills at her school's bike retreat and attract her oblivious coworker in the process. Her end game? Fall in love. Only one problem: she needs to find someone to teach her how to ride a bike pronto. But when she catches sight of Chris Dean's gorgeous physique, her best laid plans are about to go off track . . .
Chris is not looking for a girlfriend. He's getting over his last one by focusing on his bike repair business. So when a feisty, sexy schoolteacher urges him to help improve her cycling skills, he does it strictly for the money. He vows he won't repeat history, even for a blonde bombshell like Sarah. But when the two find themselves alone on the road, they can't help taking a detour straight into each other's arms . . .

What a delightful story!! I super enjoyed this loveable short read!
Sarah is a part-time librarian whose never been lucky at love. She’s had every man tell her she was too dramatic, too over-the-top, too demanding, too much work, and so much more. At this point, she’s resigned to “settle” and pick a man whom she believes could handle her for more than just a couple of weeks. She sets her sights on Ulysses, an art teacher at the local school. He is planning on attending a school social bike riding event. He’s never really noticed her, so she thinks this event may be the best way for her to get noticed by Ulysses. Unfortunately for Sarah, she never learned how to ride a bike!
Sarah’s friends have her call Chris Dean, owner of the local bike fix-it shop in town. She asks him to teach her to ride a bike in the three days she has until the event. Chris is every bit as grumpy as her friends say he is. He’s fresh out of a relationship and not looking for anyone in his life. But when Sarah walks in, electricity charges the air! She is such sight! He decides to take on the challenge. He’s not interested in a woman, but he could use the money she is offering!
Chris and Sarah’s romance is quirky, humorous, and just plain fun to see! Sarah is a hoot! Chris is serious and grumpy but Sarah lightens him up! Neither were expecting the other and the chemistry was electrifying! How the romance unfolded was not predictable and I loved that about this story. Yes you know the way it’s going and I love these types of stories, but how we get there is a wonderful mix of fun and seriousness. Sarah is quite scared of her bike and I loved how Chris calmed down her fears. How does it go? Does she do it? Do Chris and Sarah give into their spiking lust for each other? Or does she snag Ulysses??
Ready to Fall is book four in Olivia Dade’s Lovestruck Librarians series and I wholeheartedly recommend it! Reading the entire series is not required to read this little gem, but I think you will be happy to read the others as well! The whole series features strong women who fall into love unexpectedly. Go ahead! Grab this quick read and find out what I am talking about!!
