Ready to Reel by Lainey Bancroft

The Wild Rose Press

Contemporary Romance

Reviewed by Tanya



Suzette is having extraordinary fun dancing in the arms of a man who owns a Honkey Tonk bar and is stunned.  She doesn’t usually date that type of man, but she reexamines her priorities and finds that not only is the companionship nice but she seems to be enjoying herself more than ever.  So she says the heck with the social limitations that her parents and boarding school background have placed on her and decides to have fun.  She also falls in love.  But, Hank doesn’t seem to want to take their relationship to the next level.  He seems fine to be friends but when she tries to take things physical she might find out more than meets the eye about “Handlebar Hank”, and she might have to help heal a hurt that can’t be seen before anything more can happen.  Will she think it is worth it?

Ready to Reel starts out with a bang and continued.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story about a forty-something who had her life together and looks out for her friends.  I also enjoyed how she slowly fell for the strong-willed Honkey Tonk owner.  Ms. Bancroft did a wonderful job of portraying both characters insecurities as well as their strengths.  I felt like I was a fly on the wall during their interactions.  I look forward to more stories by Ms. Bancroft and think you too will enjoy Ready to Reel.
