♕ REVIEW ♕ THE HARDEST FALL BY ELLA MAISE


TITLE: The Hardest Fall
AUTHOR: Ella Maise
GENRE: Sports | Contemporary
PUBLICATION: April 18th 2018




‘THE HARDEST FALL’: 
Is a standalone full length, sports romance novel by new to me Author Ella Maise. ‘Spoken in Dual Perspectives’ 

In this we meet, shy, klutzy, kooky, quirky over talkative College Freshman Zoe Clarke.

And Dylan Reed the IT boy around campus. A football player who had a big chance of going pro. He’s gorgeous, laid back and finds himself drawn towards Zoe like no other female before.

The very first initial meeting between these two will be one never to be repeated again, hilarious, unique, and set the story up perfectly for these two characters. 

The first time Zoe Clarke saw me my hand was wrapped around my dick. 

The second meeting a year later didn't exactly go to plan either, locking eyes with Dylan on campus like a deer caught in the headlights she tries to make her escape only to rush into a group carrying a model building which didn't survive her fumbling escape to get away.

Though they do have their ups and downs when it all comes to that thing called TIMING. Timing for these two was everything. A few bumps and hurdles in the road but in the end they got it right.. 

Their third meeting yet again one year later like the other two wherever Zoe is involved also had hilarious consequences, but this time involving a towel. 

A slow burn, slow swoon, sugary sweet, college romance that had me from the start. Full of angst, twists and turns but in the end these two characters unexpectedly crept into my heart, the amount of times I gigged were countless, definitely an author I'll be reading again in the future.

My heart beats differently for you, it feels different somehow. I know this probably doesn't make sense, but...it beats louder, wilder when I see you.

The first time you meet someone, you make eye contact. You smile, say hello. Should be simple, if you’re anyone but me. The first time I met Dylan Reed, I found myself making eye contact with a different part of his body. You see, I’m very good at being shy, not to mention extremely well-versed in rambling nonsense and, unfortunately, rather highly skilled at making a fool of myself in front of a guy I’m attracted to.

At the time, I knew nothing about him and thought none of what I said would matter since I’d never speak to him again. Turns out, I was very wrong. He was the star wide receiver of the football team, one of the few players expected to make it into the NFL, and I ended up seeing him all over campus.
I might have also propositioned him, run away from him, attacked him with a cooking utensil…and…uh, maybe I shouldn’t tell you all of it. It’s pretty normal stuff, things you’d expect…from me. Eventually, the time came when I couldn’t hide anymore—not that he’d have let me even if I tried.
Before now, he never knew I was secretly watching him. Now that we see each other every day, he knows when I have a hard time looking away. It doesn’t help that I’m not the most subtle person in the world either.

He smiles at me and tells me he finds me fascinating because of my quirks. I can’t even tell him that I think my heart beats differently whenever he’s around.

He thinks we’re going to be best friends. I think I have a big thing for him, and the more I get to know him, the more I don’t care that I’m not allowed to be his friend, let alone fall for him.

The thing is, that’s exactly what I’m doing—what we’re doing, I think.

Falling.
