    5 Stars! ... The art of football and music. Finally, I've found another one of those few stories that takes place during high school that I ended up loving. No bullshit and stressful drama. No immature characters. No overly familiar plotline. This was much more original than what I thought it would be. The emotions on the surface were overwhelming, in a good way. I sensed sweetness, love, pleasure, pain, hatred, and all the other feelings that I can't put into words. I felt the main characters 5 Stars! ... The art of football and music. Finally, I've found another one of those few stories that takes place during high school that I ended up loving. No bullshit and stressful drama. No immature characters. No overly familiar plotline. This was much more original than what I thought it would be. The emotions on the surface were overwhelming, in a good way. I sensed sweetness, love, pleasure, pain, hatred, and all the other feelings that I can't put into words. I felt the main characters soul deep connection and attraction for one another. I had already expected since the beginning that this would be an emotional and angsty ride, I was armored heart and mind, but, surprisingly, the story still shredded me into pieces. Note: This is a high school, sports romance. "I closed my eyes, pulling together the frayed edges of the blanket of my mind and cocooning myself in the musical beauty, blocking out everything except for the music and Dare." The Art of Falling for You is the first book in the Falling trilogy. Dare was a popular football player who wasn't dealt an easy life. Getting accepted in his college application and leaving his terrible home life were his main priorities. Bay, on the other hand, had her own struggles. She was known as "The New Girl" from the day she first met Dare and remained socially invisible ever since. Bay expressed her feelings in writing songs and singing. But when she'd lost someone she loved, she also lost her ability to sing without remembering the pain of her past. "Maybe I could force him to feel the way he made me feel." Their story had begun four years ago, when Dare saw her singing in her backyard. He saw the real her who carried the same grief, pain, and loneliness. Being together, though secretly, both helped them to heal. Dare gave her the strength to sing, and hearing Bay sang gave him the sense of peace and hopefulness. It had brought them together, but it was also what separated them apart. The story has the element of slow burn that made it more interesting and engaging. It warmed my heart and broke it at the same time seeing them denying the pull they had toward each other because of the anticipation of hurting themselves when they eventually went on with their own lives. "She was my heart. Watching her leave would be like cutting it out and letting it out in the world walking around without me." This book wasn't all emotional, y'all know. It also has the sweetest moments, angsty moments, swoon-worthy moments, and the hottest moments that I think you won't want to miss. Well, I don't have anything to say about this book that I didn't like. What can I say? I have yet to read a book by Maya Hughes that I don't enjoy. I loved her writing. I loved her stories. I loved her characters, especially her unlikely paired characters that she always manage to develop and connect so well, internally and externally. Overall, I absolutely loved the book. It was such an amazing start and I want more of Dare and Bay. Bring on the next one! I highly recommend this to those who likes: Maya Hughes, high school, sports, slow burn, friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, second chance, emotional read, and a cliffhanger. "I wasn’t intrigued. I wasn’t infatuated. I was in love."

    i think i'm ready to finally admit defeat and accept that maya hughes' books just aren't for me. there's absolutely nothing objectively wrong with her writing. i just never seem to connect with her characters or buy their chemistry. i did appreciate the unique elements to this story and i did appreciate that the characters behaved correctly for their age. that kinda sounds weird, but oftentimes in new adult books set in high school you have characters that act like they're 30. this was definitely i think i'm ready to finally admit defeat and accept that maya hughes' books just aren't for me. there's absolutely nothing objectively wrong with her writing. i just never seem to connect with her characters or buy their chemistry. i did appreciate the unique elements to this story and i did appreciate that the characters behaved correctly for their age. that kinda sounds weird, but oftentimes in new adult books set in high school you have characters that act like they're 30. this was definitely believably over emotional and felt very teenage to me. but i gotta say, the conflict at the very end of the book enraged me. and that's really the first time i felt emotion while reading this one. which isn't a good sign. trigger warnings for domestic violence and talk of death of a loved one

    4 Stars ”When are you going to learn, I’m always watching you, Bay?” I’m finally out of my slump and it’s all thanks to this book! I had been craving for a contemporary high school romance for so long now and I finally found one that ticked majority of my boxes. The book starts off with a sneak peek of the present time where Dare and Bay meet again, 4 years after high school. There’s obviously some unfinished business and tension between them. Then we are sent back to the past where we get to read 4 Stars ”When are you going to learn, I’m always watching you, Bay?” I’m finally out of my slump and it’s all thanks to this book!

The book starts off with a sneak peek of the present time where Dare and Bay meet again, 4 years after high school. There’s obviously some unfinished business and tension between them. Then we are sent back to the past where we get to read about how they meet, get together and why they went their separate ways after graduation. Dare and Bay have been in the same school since the past three years, but Dare actually notices her the day he hears her singing in her backyard. Her voice pulled something deep within him and since then he regretted all the years he wasted not knowing her. With just three months left before graduation he is determined to break through Bay’s wall and get to know her better. They both have a beautiful story! They go from being strangers to becoming each other’s support. Their cute little banters! Absolutely loved them. “I don’t want you to say anything, okay?” “Like, ever again?” I smiled, but he still wore the serious face that made my stomach leap into my throat. His finger ran across my lips. “Smartass.” Her guitar sat beside the bed. “Can you sing something for me?” Her fingers skimmed along my forehead. “I can sing for as long as you’d like.” Also Dare was the star of the book for me. I legit cried for him! I’m so glad he has a friend like Knox by his side. The moment they had towards the end 😭😭😭. I hope they are still friends in the future. However, a small thing did bother me and that was how they went from being school mates who hardly ever spoke to each other to a “thing” a little too quickly for my liking. Again this is my personal preference, you might actually think it’s completely okay 🤷🏽‍♀️ The book does end with a cliffhanger! since this series is a trilogy. And all I’m going to say about the ending is that, I really hope in the next book it’s not just Dare getting all the heat. For me Bay messed up too.

    What the H just happened? It was my fault for not reading it is a freakin’ trilogy... so yes, it’s not a standalone, it ends with a cliffhanger but honestly... I don’t even care anymore. It took me three weeks and like ten books in between chapters to finish this. By 60% I was bored out of my mind and couldn’t care less about Bay and a little bit of Dare. The only thing that made me finish the book was because of the beginning, which was four years later and I wanted to know what happened then! What the H just happened?

So yes, unless you are a fan of the author, I wouldn’t recommend this one, it was so slow paced, H’s character could have been built better with so many things going on in his life that the author could have developed, and h’s... she was a plain character, so simple it was painful to watch. So the plot sounded good, but I didn’t like how it was developed.

    Ahhh this was a bittersweet read. My heart darn near exploded with happiness in parts , but then it also shattered in parts --- and it's not quite mended back together yet. This was original and not like most high school books I've read. It was raw and emotional, but yet beautiful. The start of Dare and Bay's story. It was mostly told in the past and we got to see them grow in love and grow in themselves. Dare... I love that boy. He is broken, broody and hurting.

He can't lose it... no matter what. Bay is also hurting, but in different ways. She is trying to be strong and hold it all together. Her music is her solace. She can truly be content and free when she plays her guitar. She doesn't play for anyone... but, one night she has a audience of one. Her neighbor Dare hears her play. He is intrigued and it was like a siren song for him. It called to his heart. I didn't know it wasn't a standalone so I'll be starting on book 2 asap! I need to know what happens after that ending.

    Honestly, this book took me by surprise, I was waiting for a sweet and cute romance like in Maya´s previous books, and even if this book is all of those things it's also very angsty, which made me love it even more. I love how the sole focus of the book was introducing us to Dare and Bay and their relationship, I think it was a perfect way for readers to connect with the story, the characters and to understand them better, this way a second chance romance with time jump doesn't seem boring or wit Honestly, this book took me by surprise, I was waiting for a sweet and cute romance like in Maya´s previous books, and even if this book is all of those things it's also very angsty, which made me love it even more.

This book. I’m a 100% sure that this is my favourite book by Maya Hughes to date. I’ve enjoyed her books from Fulton U and so I had certain expectations of her writing style etc. But wow...this one blew out of the water. I’m still reeling from the impact I felt when I hit 100%. I started this book completely blind and so I’ll provide a bit of a summary in case you are too. This story takes place in a small-town neighbourhood and stars the two main characters, Bay and Dare. They’re neighbours who have been attending the same school for three years yet have never spoken to each other albeit living side by side. This is a story of how two lost souls find solace in each other and not going to lie, I shed a tear here and there. The story starts off with a surprise reconciliation between the two characters. It’s four years later and Bay and Dare finally meet each other again. It continues with a flashback to four years before and to be honest, I was not expecting the entire story to be a flashback. I assumed the flashback would last for a few chapters, but still I found myself enjoying reading their history. Bay is literally the biggest sweetheart I swear she hasn’t done anything wrong in life. She’s definitely my favourite female MC by the author to date. She’s an introvert who just wants to mind her own business and do what she loves most...until she and her neighbour finally exchange a few words. Although she mostly keeps to herself, she has a snarky side to her and it comes out when she’s around her best friend and of course, Dare. After a certain incident enters Dare who’s determined to say something to Bay and get to know her better. From the beginning, we have an idea of his life but not entirely the full picture, so he was quite an enigma to me. However you could tell he’s been harbouring things and there’s a lot more than meets the eye to him. Now let’s talk about their interactions. I am so obsessed with them? There’s just something about popular and not-so popular characters living right next to each other and I love that trope to death. The idea of seeing them in school and even when you’re at home because they live not even a block away from you is *chef’s kiss*. Bay and Dare have such a beautiful relationship. With all that’s happening in their lives, they become each other’s anchor and pillar of support. I literally couldn’t stop flipping the pages because I was rooting for them. I don’t think I have anything negative to say, really, because I loved this book so much. I’m kind of sad that it ends in a cliffhanger because I wasn’t expecting that and thought the conflict would be resolved by the end. Nonetheless, I’m definitely excited for the sequel and I can’t wait to read more of Bay and Dare’s story <3 I’m assuming it will take place in the present from there onwards. Also as a final note...the ending...Maya Hughes you absolute genius. i really should’ve seen it coming but in my defence, like i said, i totally went into this blind. very grateful though <3333 * original review: MY GOD...ALL THIS TIME...THE ENDING IM LITERALLY SPEECHLESS AND I NEVER CONNECTED THE DOTS RIGHT UNTIL I SAW IT?!/!;&3!;&3!;&3!;&: LITERALLY MY FAVOURITE BOOK FROM MAYA HUGHES TO DATE REVIEW TO COME SOON WHEN I’VE CALMED DOWN

    This is going to be the longest-winded get-to-point review I've written in a long time. Bear with me - it'll make sense. Maya Hughes, in my opinion, writes accessible young adult/ new adult romance. Those who run in the same reading group circles know that I tend to shy away from the genre as a 'more' mature adult. I often find I cannot relate or maybe they remind me too much of the kids. LOL However, Maya has a storytelling voice that makes these characters accessible regardless of your age that This is going to be the longest-winded get-to-point review I've written in a long time.

Those who run in the same reading group circles know that I tend to shy away from the genre as a 'more' mature adult. I often find I cannot relate or maybe they remind me too much of the kids. LOL However, Maya has a storytelling voice that makes these characters accessible regardless of your age that you can relate to and engage in your journey. With that said... The trilogy is frickin' bloody brilliant. Seriously this is the best Maya Hughes has ever written. Yes, this is Bay and Dare's love story. It is a (view spoiler)[ second chance which those who have followed me know it's my catnip. (hide spoiler)] I love finding out how two souls meet and find each other as the story unfolds. It's the overcoming of the obstacles that I love to read. My second truth is I'm not usually a fan of the trilogy format. I am now the child of instant gratification and want it all now. Yet, this story could not be told in one sitting. There is so much to be said and their journey takes the course over the books it needs. There is something that the reader needs to experience to enjoy this epic love tale. Now to book 1 - Things I loved: - We get this fabulously written back story. We get to know these two imperfect characters on a deeper level. Not just love and lust - but what experiences shaped them. - You need this story of how they met, their personal obstacles because...later. - It's the opposites attract but in a hundred times is the perfect person for the other. - This is first love. That butterflies, this person is my world story. Until it is not. - You need to hold onto these characters as they were to see how they will be. - Piper and Knox, Bay's mom, all these wonderful side characters bring depth to the story of the primary characters. Seeing the MCs through their eyes. - Did I say this is frickin' brilliant writing? Things to consider: - This is a rant for the back row readers so pay attention: This is a trilogy. Falling books 1, 2, and 3. This is a trilogy story of a single couple arc love story told in three books. This means there will be the dreaded 'cliffhanger'. Whether it be a minor 6" step or a major Mt Everest size cliff, that is the nature of a trilogy. If you decided to wait until all three books are out, you do you. But this is a no-fly zone for whining and complaining. Y'all be waiting 4 weeks - I had to wait months. So there you go rant over. - Your heart will hurt in different ways for the main characters. But the pain needs to exist for the characters to grow. If you haven't gathered, I had the opportunity to beta read this trilogy. Note I am a member of Maya's team, but my reviews come from the heart. I know what readers are going to experience so it is difficult not to let the experience of the whole color the review words of book one. So, I'll stop here with - My recommendation: Buy It

The Art of Falling For You is the first installment of three, and Bay and Dare already own my heart, I just want to give them big hugs :( Bay and Dare have been attending the same high school for the past three years and also happen to be neighbors, but despite living so close to each other, they never spoke or noticed each other... until Bay's guitar and singing reach Dare's ears. With only a few months left until graduation, they are both ready to leave this town and start a new chapter of their lives, but entering into each other's lives will make them wish for more time together. I'm a big fan of Maya Hughes's work and I still think about LJ and Marisa every day, so I was very excited to dive into this trilogy. I went in completely blind and it was such a nice surprise! It took me some chapters to get into the story, but then I was fully invested in Bay and Dare's story and completely fell in love with them. The first chapter starts in the present with Bay and Dare seeing each other for the first time in four years. The rest of the book is set in the past and gives a better insight into the beginning of their relationship. At first, I didn't expect the "past part" to last the whole book, but it was more interesting, and it wouldn't have felt the same with only a few flashback chapters. As I said, I loved the main characters A LOT, their story even made me shed some tears, and I'm very VERY curious to know what will happen next for Bay and Dare, especially after THAT ending!!! Courtesy of Dare, Bay has been known as the new girl for three years, but she doesn't care. She is minding her own business and is determined to follow her dreams and follow in her late father's steps. She is an introvert, but she is not afraid to stand up for herself and stays alert when Dare takes an interest in her. On the outside, Dare appears to be the popular jock of the school, but after a few chapters, the label is debunked. He remains an enigma for most of the book, but you understand that he suffers a lot. The more time he spends with Bay, the more he forgets his problems and feels that everything is going to be okay. So Dare is determined to prove to Bay that he is serious about her. Bay and Dare were so precious together. They are both lost souls, and it was beautiful to read that they had found peace and comfort in each other. I love the way their relationship evolved and the way they were in their little bubble every time they were together, like Bay playing guitar and singing for Dare, and Dare drawing Bay!! My precious babies <3 They also sort of served the shy girl/popular guy trope, and god knows I'm a sucker for this trope. The ending broke my heart, and I can't wait to know how they are going to reconnect, and also what happened to them after high school. Also, Maya Hughes is a genius!!! It took me a few chapters to connect all the dots, but I still freaked out when I read the last two words of the book. I usually don't like books that end with a cliffhanger, but this is worth it, and I'm so excited up for what's next!! Arc kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

You can really empathize with their struggles, but overall they had a sweet romance. That being said this is a trilogy, so clearly there are issues and things don’t end perfectly in book one, you’ll just have to read it to see where Bay and Dare end up and where they are going!

The book follows them in High School when Dare first takes notice of Bay and see's her as more than just "The New Girl" that's been at school for three years already. He was the typical jock around most people but with Bay Dare was more than that. He became vulnerable and shared things with her he hadn't shared with anyone else and Bay also opened up more around Dare.

I loved that connection they had where they felt so comfortable with each other. Of course it wasn't an easy start for them and Bay especially wasn't as trusting of that connection but they worked through that and eventually became very close. Like I said, this was the start to their story and there is definitely a lot more to come from Bay and Dare which I'm dying for. I'm not usually a cliffhanger reader and usually avoid trilogies but I'm a big fan of Maya Hughes and knew it would be worth the read. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

This first book opens up to the love story between Dare and Bay, taking us to the past four years before the events in the present take place. At the beginning of the book, we are currently in the present when Dare and Bay meet each other surprisingly after four year of the events that took place in the past. Right before this, almost the entirety of the rest of the book is dedicated to Dare and Bay’s last year of high school, and how they meet and get to know each other. The love story between these two characters starts suddenly when Dare hears Bay singing while playing the guitar in her yard, this happens because the both of them have been neighbours for some time. While it is true that they have been in the same high school for three years, it is only now that Dare takes an interest in getting to know Bay after he starts feeling a connection with her though her music. As for the characters, Dare and Bay are very opposite when it comes to personalities, but they find a connection between each other as they spend more time together, getting to know one another and opening up about their fears, dreams and struggles. On the one hand, we have Bay who is struggling with her social status in high school since she has been known as “the new girl” for three years now, trying at the same time to deal with the grief of losing her father to a sudden death and to maintain the connection she has with him when it comes to music. On the other hand, we have Dare who is trying to get a signing deal in order to play football in college, struggling each day to survive in a house that only brings him bitter memories of his father’s abuse. I have to say that this book was a total surprise for me since I went into it without any idea of what would happen, but at the same time I had my theories of what it would be about. It is true that I did not expect the book to be mainly based in the past, but I think it was crucial in order for the other books to make sense, and for us readers to have all the details of Dare and Bay’s story. I also wanted to point out that I always find comfort in Maya’s writing, I think that her style is really easy to read and follow and keep the reader interested thought the book without feeling like the chapters are too long. Finally, I enjoyed both Dare and Bay as characters, they were very endearing in the beginning. But, I have to say that I did not fully understand the continuous push and pull that they had between each other since they both admitted to be interested in pursuing a relationship. While it is true that they are teenagers and they may act like it most of the time, I did not understand how they continued to hesitate around each other so much since it was clear that they meant a great deal to each other. So, I really cannot wait to see what the other two books brings for the two of them and their relationship. *ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This story grabbed me right away, A chance encounter and you could hear the heartbreak in just the way they said each others names to know they had some crazy past and then BOOM we are getting it. Maya takes us back four years and gives us the story of how Dare and Bay met, ultimately fell in love and everything that happened between that and them ending things. And what a story it was, I didn't want to put it down. I have been a fan of Maya Hughes' for a couple of years now and this is why. You have to read this book if you are a fan of New Adult Romances, Girl Next Door Romances, or even First Love Romances, and if you read the FULTON U Series you will want to read this I promise you will not be sorry you did. I cannot wait to get my hand on their next book in the trilogy, I have to know what happens next for Dare and Bay. Happy Reading!!!

    With all honesty, I started this book without any idea of what I could find, or what it was about, but as always, Maya has decided to surprise me. Baydare are my besties. The Art of Falling for You didn't start strong by any means but their characters attracted, Bay, most of all.

Baydare are my besties. The Art of Falling for You didn't start strong by any means but their characters attracted, Bay, most of all. We get at first a glimpse of them when they end University and just a few pages later starting with them in high school. At first, I didn't know this was going to be a trilogy, with the same couple, which is new for Maya, and she didn't disappoint me. I will start with Bay Bishop, The New Girl, but not so new, but that's how everyone calls her. Her character intrigued me so much, her story and everything she did. She just wants to disappear, end high school and leave that town for good, start a new life without anyone she knows in her way. Somehow I found her refreshing and probably one of my Maya's favorites heroines, alongside Marisa, that's it. Then we have Dare. Dare was a difficult character, with an abusive past and future ahead of him if he didn't get to leave for University. At first, I had my doubts about this character but you just can't help but love, and boy, I did love him so much. At the start of the book, both want to get into the University of their dreams and be done with their awful past but they meet each other, and everything changes. I simply loved how Bay only sang for Dare and how Dare was only soft for Bay. Their chemistry was simply there and cannot be missed. As for together, I loved how they clicked. It was slow but they got there and every time they were together I just swooned. The end of the literally ended me, I didn't expect so many things and Maya is a genius for this. For BAYDARE. If I had known since the beginning I would have felt even crazier about these characters. Can Maya give me the second book about now? I really can't get over how obsessed with baydare I am, nobody can't top them. In the meanwhile, I will find myself rereading this heartbreaking book, than you so much Maya. ILY THEM SO MUCH PLEASE MAYA. *𝘈𝘙𝘊 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘷𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘶𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘳 𝘪𝘯 𝘦𝘹𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘢𝘯 𝘩𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘷𝘪𝘦𝘸.

The Art of Falling For You is the first installment in a new Maya Hughes trilogy, bringing all the angst and feels of a high school first love that is very likely to break your heart and then put it back together again (in the next books bc there's only pain here in case you need to know). Something I love about this book is how the story is told with them meeting again, and then going back to the beginning of their story to introduce these characters and how their love story began in their senior year of high school. Both Bay and Dare are living a secret life, sneaking around, but it's only a few months before they can be free and leave this town that holds such bad memories behind. But it only took Dare to hear his neighbor sing that their lives would be intertwined forever, and all those plans to go away and leave everything behind become more complicated. These characters were amazing as a couple and individually. They both have a lot of emotional baggage, which caused many fears to creep into their relationship sometimes making things difficult for them. Keeping in mind that Dare and Bay are teenagers, there was a lot of push and pull here, and also a bit of the miscommunication trope, which I hope will lead us to see how their relationship will grow from there, and also make them grow as people. Overall, this book DESTROYED ME and I wasn't expecting this from a high school romance, but it was so angsty it hit really hard! I really can't wait for the next installments to see what these characters have been up to this time apart, how much they have grown, and how everything is going to work out. Dare is a character that has been under our noses for a while and was eager to know his story, and Bay had me from the get-go, so they are firmly making their way as another of my favorite Maya couples 💘!

    I’m obsessed! The Art of Falling For You is the beginning of Maya Hughes’ newest series. Bittersweet and filled with intense emotions, this second chance romance is distinct in contrast to her usual humorous, wholesome romances we’re accustomed to, but the angst-ridden nature of this narrative will grab your heart and twist your soul just the same.

Bittersweet and filled with intense emotions, this second chance romance is distinct in contrast to her usual humorous, wholesome romances we’re accustomed to, but the angst-ridden nature of this narrative will grab your heart and twist your soul just the same. I’d been so worried about fixing him, but I should’ve been preparing to fix myself when he shattered me. Cruel. Violent. Vicious. Without hesitation, Bay Bishop is my newest favourite heroine from this author. She’s an honest character who’s authentic, true to self and overall an awesome, humble woman with unrivalled determination, feistiness and sassiness. She’s an absolute sweetheart; the kind of heroine you’d want to become your best friend. He was chiseled, in an ‘I’ll sweet talk you with bloody knuckles’ kind of way. He was the epitome of the boy from the other side of the tracks, only instead of a motorcycle, he drove a muscle car. Dare shocked me in numerous ways; he isn’t just bold or confident. Behind the initial surface of the loved and revered footballer, there's an incredible human, a shattered man underneath. He is full of intense complexities and formidable strengths and unfathomable intricacies weaved together to create my next favourite book boyfriend. “I wish you could feel the way your songs make me feel. It’s like you’ve cracked open my chest and you’re holding my heart in your hands.” Even though they have immeasurable attributes as individual characters, Bay and Dare together are explosive and wondrous. I adored the scenes that featured them together; the chemistry between them is earnest and sincere; the connection a fervent slow burn that electrified my entire core, that encouraged me to develop an unwavering need to have more of them. It was delightfully enchanting watching them evolve together. The Art of Falling For You is such a stellar introduction to this familiar but different world featuring hot, irresistible footballers; slow burn, second chance romance; and the most delectable, electrified encounters between Bay and Dare. I usually stay far away from trilogies as they tend to be long-winded, but the Falling series has hooked me in—I can’t wait to witness the remainder of their heart wrenching journey.

    "I wish you could feel the way your songs make me feel. It's like you've cracked open my chest and you're holding my heart in your hands." Maya Hughes brings us another magnificent series! This is the first installment of the Falling trilogy about Dare and Bay. Bay is the town's "new girl" and is unable to shake this nickname regardless of the fact that it's been three years since her move. It's senior year and she's just trying to survive, to get accepted into college, focus on her music, and get "I wish you could feel the way your songs make me feel.

This is the first installment of the Falling trilogy about Dare and Bay. Bay is the town's "new girl" and is unable to shake this nickname regardless of the fact that it's been three years since her move. It's senior year and she's just trying to survive, to get accepted into college, focus on her music, and get the hell out of the town. Dare is a beloved and popular football player. He has never paid any attention to the girl next door yet he can't help but seek her out after hearing her soulful music one night. This book had me absolutely hooked from the beginning. I'm always drawn to Maya's seamlessly sweet and charming love stories. Her characters are always special. I adored Bay. She is talented and sassy, always true to herself. Dare was quite a surprising character. He is chivalrous and loving, always willing to help others. At the same time, he can be very closed off and mysterious because of his trauma with abuse. I simply cannot express how much Dare had an impact on me. His character was complex and beautiful. He is hands-down one of the best-written characters of Maya's. The chemistry between these two was palpable. My heart tightened with all the cuteness. I'm seriously obsessed with Dare and Bay. I could not stop smiling throughout. Every interaction filled me with warmth and I loved the depth of the characters and how they explored their emotions and anxieties with one another. Maya gets me every single time. I would read anything she writes. This is easily one of my best reads ever. Additionally, I genuinely think this novel is her most quality written book. I'm blown away, I cannot praise it enough. Maya writes her books with such affection and care. Her stories fill you with so much joy and comfort. A definite must-read! *ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    // HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD // “Your love was gift wrapped in barbed wire, and I was stupid enough to believe I could open it without getting nicked. I don’t know if the wounds will ever heal. You shredded me, Darren Keyton.” I enjoyed this but the miscommunication in the middle of the book and the back and forth of Bay avoiding Dare or Dare avoiding Bay got a little frustrating and dragged on too long for my liking.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I had to change my review because in the next the third book she decides to separate them for another 6 years. This trilogy isn’t safe and spans 10 years. I feel pretty frauded right now. I would not have read this series if I had known that.

They share this connection that’s both exhilarating and scary. I liked how Dare was able to share things with Bay that he hadn’t with others. And in the mist of it all I found Bay to be brave at her ability to trust. I really liked Bay and Dare individually, but together they were something else. I reeeeeeeeeally need the next book now and can’t wait for more of Bay and Dare’s story. *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book*

After reading this story I actually had to give myself a day to process the masterpiece that I had just read. Maya has really out done herself with this book, I can’t imagine what’s waiting for us with the rest of the trilogy. I went into this book with no expectations what so ever, I knew it was a ‘boy next door’ trope but other then that I knew nothing. A little summary- The Art of Falling For You is the first instalment of the falling trilogy, I don’t want to give to much away but the start and end of this story are perfection, we are given little glimpses of the Dare and Bay’s present situation, which is not what you would expect. Then the rest of the book takes place 4 years in the past, where we meet Bay and Dare, both living in a small town, where football is the law. They have lived next door to each other for 3 years and have never exchanged words. It’s not until there’s that one certain moment that happens in the book, where they finally start to notice each other. I think that’s what made me love this story so much, it gave me the back story that I needed and made the anticipation for the next two books that much more exciting. Bay is hands down my new favourite female character, honestly she is just wow. Everything about her makes me want to be her friend. She likes to keep to herself but when you know her, Bay has a lot of personality. She is feisty, sassy, always true to herself, is open and honest no matter what. Dare, was a massive surprise for me. He is someone who I appreciate reading and yes, quickly became one of my new favourite characters. There is a lot more to him then you think, even though you piece his life together there is always that little dash of mystery that stays with him. What I loved most about Dare is his thoughts, his way of thinking, the control he tries manage. I’m not entirely sure why, but he absolutely fascinated me. Bay and Dare’s interactions are probably my favourite I have read to date. Their connection!! The way it came across was so different from what I have read from this author before, it felt so strong to me. Even though they have lived next door to each other for 3 years, they seem to have entered each others lives at the perfect time. Their relationship is beautiful, with everything that they go through, both Bay and Dare become each other’s rocks, the support they give one another is like nothing they have had in their lives before and they deserve it so much, finally. The climax to this book was massive, you feel it build and build so intensity throughout their story but you are completely unsure of what’s going to happen. The first chapter of the book really set up the excitement for the rest of the book, for me at least anyway! Those last two words of this story got me so good! I just can’t believe I had no idea the whole time I was reading it, I tell myself it’s because I was too wrapped up with loving the book. But daaaamn, I was left speechless and it shocked the hell out of me, in the best way 😉 Anyway wrapping up this extremely long rambled on review, I would 100% recommend this book/ trilogy to everyone! I have always been a huge fan of Maya Hughes writing but she has definitely changed it up a bit for this one and it has really paid off! The Art of Falling For You is an absolute masterpiece, Bay and Dare will complete win over you hearts! *arc proved for an honestly review* - *original review* If I could give this book a million stars, I would without even hesitating. I’m speechless, I don’t even know the words to say, that would give this the justice that it deserves. THAT ENDING THOUGH, I just can’t even deal.

It's one of the sweetest high school romances I've read so far. I'm looking forward to reading book 2 but I went and read book 3's summary as well and it makes me not want to read it. :( But... I am here to see how things are after 4 years so I might stick around. "I've stared at my ceiling, looked out my window trying to figure out how my excitement at going away to college in a few months now has a bittersweet tinge to it because you won't be there." - Bay Pretty much sums up how my heart hurts right now.
