“Are you stalking me?”
“We live right next door to each other, New Girl.”
Bay Bishop aka The New Girl is my new neighbor. Glasses, stage crew black clothes and a knack for fading into the background.
She’s probably the only one who rolls her eyes when I walk past instead of cheering on my last touchdown play. But before I can shove her into the recesses of my mind filed under “Not my problem” she lands herself smack dab in the middle of my dreams.
I catch her singing with a voice unlike any I’ve heard before that taps into feelings I shouldn’t have for the girl who avoids me at all costs. I need to know why she hates me.
With three months until graduation, the final play is on. Only it’s not for more points. It’s for Bay.
Unlike my success on the field, this win is anything but assured. But I can’t stop myself from taking the risk.
There’s no flashing scoreboard.
There’s no cheering crowd.
There’s only her and me.
The countdown clock is ticking. The only thing scarier about finding my first love will be losing her.
The Art of Falling for You is the first book in the new Fulton U universe sports romance, Falling trilogy.
He wanted to pretend he was a nice guy now? I ran through my first day at Greenwood Senior High. The vivid details craved an excruciatingly clear memory of just the kind of guy he was. Even if he didn’t remember, I certainly did.
If only that had been the end of it. But it wasn’t. He was back that afternoon and mom insisted I take him a glass of lemonade.
I kicked his leg and he slid out with grease marks on his cheeks and hands that only made him hotter.
The universe’s unfairness had never been clearer than Dare looking like a cover model wheeling out from under my mom’s junker of a car. If I’d had a team of stylists and beauty professionals dress me and do my makeup, I’d never be more than catalog cute. He was super-model searing without even trying.
“From my mom.” I shoved the glass toward him.
“It’s not from you? Did you make it yourself?” He set the wrench down on the concrete and drew his knees up, resting his back against the side panel of the car. His gaze locked onto mine, holding it and not letting me look away.
My pulse pounded, and my stomach back flipped into next week. “Just take it.”
“Did you poison it?” He lifted an eyebrow.
“Yes, I dropped in one of my cyanide capsules that I keep on hand for annoying neighbors.”
He didn’t say a word, only let me stand there with my arm extended, not making a move to take the glass.
My hand shook. I jerked it back and took a sip. “See, not poisoned.” I took a step closer and held it out again.
His gray eyes twinkled with amusement. He shot up, so his body brushed against mine on the way up, not trying to make room at all for my personal space. His fingers curled over mine before he pulled the glass from my grasp.
Instead of drinking from the side of glass closest to him, he turned it in his hold and took a sip from my side of the glass. My lip prints melted away by his. He didn’t drop his gaze or look away.
He froze me in my tracks like a deer caught in headlights after a long night in the forest.

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.
I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.
I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

Sinclair Callahan is a trust fund baby.
Born into one of the richest, most notorious families in the country, the black sheep title was stamped on him from an early age. While the rest of his relatives earn their keep at the top tier baseball team they’ve owned for generations, Sin prefers spending his time and money on booze, babes and bad decisions.
Until all three land him in a coma, fighting for his life.
One year later, with a sober chip in his hand, he arrives at spring training ready to turn it all around. But when he meets the only woman who doesn’t recognize just who he is, he can’t help omitting a few important details … like his last name. No stranger to charming women, Sin uses one of his old skillsets to kick off what is sure to be an epic hookup.
But when she shows up five months after their brief Florida fling with a secret that will topple his privileged world, he might just lose everything he’s worked so hard to rebuild. Including a real shot at love with the sassy redhead that he’s been too much of a coward to pursue.
Can he shoulder the responsibility he’s always shrugged off? Or will he balk at the real-life complications and strike out completely?
Francesca Kade is an independent goal-getter.
As one of the only female strength coaches in the league, she’s used to invading the boys’ club. After putting up with being passed over and not promoted for a number of seasons, she’s finally got her shot.
A consummate professional with blinders on, there is no way anything will screw up all she hopes to achieve. Well, except for maybe the new employee with eyes the color of ocean waves and a smirk that’s the definition of sin. When they catch fire in the southern heat, it’s almost impossible to put it out.
Until she finds out that he’s her boss’s boss’s boss.
Burned from the betrayal and panicking with a fresh secret of her own, Frankie is shocked when she lands her ultimate dream job. There is no way she’s turning it down. But when she bumps into Sinclair on day one, all of the old feelings and new problems come hurtling at her like a baseball to the face.
Will she ever be able to trust that he’ll put both her and his responsibilities before his vices? Or will their differences cost them the game?
I am so in love with the Callahan series and I have been so looking forward to Sinclair’s story. Who doesn’t love a reformed bad-boy? I know I do and Sinclair is the epitome of a changed man in his story.
This is Sinclair and Frankie’s story.
I absolutely love Frankie, she is a take charge woman in a man dominated world of baseball. She is girl power personified. I could relate to her in so many ways and that too is what make me fall for her.
They way that Sin and Frankie meet is fun and exciting, but I knew things were gonna get bumpy when summer training was over and boy did it ever! You are going to be thrown a curveball, just like Frankie!
I loved the flow of this story and the way that Ms. Aarons was able to address the issues of addiction and how everyone deserves a second chance.
There are swoons aplenty and when Sinclair faces his fears and goes for what he wants, well Frankie makes him work for it and rightly so!
I hope there are more stories coming from this family in the future!
I have to say, even though YA isn’t my go to choice in reading, I am always amazed by Ms. Hughes writing!
This story is the start of a trilogy that is going to blow you away! I was invested by the second page and now I am in it for the whole series!
This is the story we have all been waiting for! The story of Dare (Kenyon) and Bay.
I was delightfully surprised by the premise of this story, it’s the perfect set up for the trilogy! We get to see the past, the beginning of the relationship, the beginning of everything.
I absolutely loved Dare and Bay’s history, their backstory. The way that they came together and the way their relationship changed and grew into something epic…then you will see what happens to blow that all away.
This is a fantastic introduction to a the newest series by Ms. Hughes, I cannot wait to read what’s next!
