The Hardest Fall BLURB:
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.

This is a standalone book from Ella Maise and a good read from this author. If you enjoy your share of slow-burns, this is a good book for you. Mix it with two collage students who meet during interesting situations, but they were seeing other people every time.
Zoe Clarke and Dylan Reed meet in a bathroom with a funny set up but manage to make an impression to one another. He is the football star, with NFL fame in his future, and Zoe has her priorities already straight, Dylan one of them. Time passes by, and they run into each other again.
“This is the strangest thing, but I think you’re going to be my best friend, Zoe Clarke.”
From accidental encounters, to accidental roommates, to friends… step by step they start to fall and hard. I loved how their romance grows slowly, especially when secrets come up and devastating pasts take from the present.
“She was so shy, but it only mad her more attractive and interesting in my eyes…”
