ABOUT 


“Wouldn’t most guys love a no strings attached hook up?”

“Maybe, but most guys don’t deserve you. I want to be one who does. And I want to be all tangled up in your strings.”


Newly arrived on campus, I knew two things. 1) No one could know my dad was the president of the university and 2) football players were bad news.


My run in, the literal kind with my neighbor cranked up the heat and sparks flew.


A new college campus. A secret bound to explode in my face. And a football player neighbor who is bad news in the best of ways.


Reid Riddick was hotness personified, so of course I literally ran into with him–well, more like he plowed into me.


I didn’t know he was a football player when I started falling and now I can’t stop. A stolen kiss later and my heart races whenever he looks at me from across the quad.


But my secret would spell disaster for him.


I’m the daughter of the college president. The college president who’s been feuding with his football coach for years. Their bitter campus war leaves us teetering on the edges of a divide we can’t see a way across.


Resisting him is more than I can handle. He’s risking it all for me. His team standing. His football season. His pro future.


Throw in a campus gossip site. My out of control new friends. His way too hot roommates. College traditions. A secret campus bar and the only guy who’s ever made me feel like he can’t live without me. And I have one last secret.


Our star-crossed love is my first and I want him to be mine.


Kiss and Tell is the first book in the new St Francis Universitysports romance series.





 

EXCERPT


I didn’t get a chance to congratulate you out on the field.” Ashley and Taylor jumped on him with hugs and congratulations, and it had felt like that would be a step too close for us. Like the moment we touched in public, everyone would know about our kiss and the night snuggled up together and the feelings I’d been trying to hide. 

His head swung toward me. “Coach definitely ruined the moment.”

Our eyes locked, and the closeness was a lot like when we were huddled up together in the garage. But nothing about our situation had changed. 

Swallowing, I blurted out the first thing that came to mind. “I can see even more now why you were on board with not seeing each other once you found out who I was. He’d probably make your life a living hell.” 

“Probably.” His jaw ticked. 

“If he found out I was in here with you, he’d be pissed.” 

“Probably.” His gaze blazed with an intensity that wasn’t just anger about his dickhead of a coach. 

“It’s probably why everyone thought it was best to have me down here with you.” 

“Probably.” The word seemed to have lost all meaning. 

“I don’t want to screw up all your hard work and sacrifices. It’s probably why it makes sense for us not to be seen around each other after this is over.” I choked on the words and forced them out past the lump lodged in my throat.

Instead of the probably I’d expected, he turned his whole body. 

“No one else is here right now. It’s just me and you.” 

A shuddering inhale, and our lips were on each other. I didn’t know who kissed who first, but the sensations that poured through our lips meeting made me want more. It made me want everything. The way his mouth moved over mine. His tongue brushed against my lips, demanding and needy at the same time, which sent the fluttering deep in my stomach and turned it into a hungry clench for more. 

Screams from above broke through our cocoon. 

“You’re veering! Turn left! What the hell! Pay attention.” 

Someone banged on the side of Smaug.

Reid course-corrected, and we were no longer headed straight for the living room transplanted to the side of the street. 

I still tasted him on my lips. Peppermint and heat.

Michelle’s Review

Kiss and Tell (St. Francis U, #1)Kiss and Tell by Maya Hughes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great start to a new series by Maya. Welcome to STFU! We’ve heard of them from her past series and now we get the chance to meet sone new characters and fall in love with their stories.
This is Reid and Leonas book. He’s a star football player and she’s the Deans daughter. Off limits to each other but chemistry is hard to deny. These two give us a great story filled with laughs, love, hot scenes and tears. I really took to these characters and can’t wait to get more from this series. Check it out.

COVER REVEAL

Title: The Sweetest Thing 

Series: SWANK  #2

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 1, 2021

ABOUT


Goldilocks has gotten a bit off track. I found her in my room, my bathroom and my bathtub to be precise.

Sabrina Mason is my new roommate. My new unwelcome roommate. Not that I have a say about it since I’m babysitting my Grandma’s apartment, which means Sabrina’s here to stay. But we’d agreed my room was off limits.

It’s bad enough my nightmares are getting worse, but having her around me makes holding it together. Her smell, smart mouth and sexy a–anyway. I can’t let her get under my skin although it might be too late. In her sloppy bun and pajamas curled up on the couch, she’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. But a relationship isn’t what I need right now.

It’s hard to remember that when she’s glowering at me when I’m being an ass. We’re forced to live together for only a few more month, I can hold out until I can’t.

She’s in my bathtub and she’s not telling me to leave. So I ask the question, “do you want me to go?”

And I’m shocked as hell when her answer isn’t ‘no’.

ABOUT 


Six years ago, in the dead of night, I woke up to a cold bed and an even colder future without her.

I would’ve followed her anywhere and she left.

I thought I’d moved on and left all she meant to me behind. But a first love is never easy to forget. Even harder when I once felt our love is inevitable–inescapable. And I’ve been proven right once again.

One night brings us back together and derails our lives. We’re sent on a collision course with a future apart and even scarier–a future together. I’m back basking in the warm glow of her gaze and burning with the unquenchable fire of her touch.

We’ve walked this path before and our shattered hearts have been pieced back together. As easy as it would be to run again, I can’t stop wanting her.

This is our final chance to have what we’ve always wanted–each other. Or it’ll be our ruin.

The final book in the Fulton U universe sports romance, Falling trilogy.

EXCERPT


Passing through the black curtain to the cordoned off area, I couldn’t help myself. Barely looking past my shoulder, I stole a glance at her.

A squadron of people surrounded her, a lot like the first time I’d seen her backstage in a sea of suits.

And just like before, she found me through their heads and our gazes collided.

A glimmer of a smile quirked the edges of her lips.

It was all I let myself have before disappearing behind the cloak of fabric headed to the after party.

Keeping the auction winners entertained helped occupy my mind, but my thoughts always came back to Bay, especially while they were off getting pictures taken with Without Grey.

A gentle hand landed on my shoulder. “Look at you, cleaning up way better than you have any right to.”

I glanced down only a few inches for once, due to her five-inch heels, taking in the spitfire who’d made all Bay’s dreams come true. And taken her away from me.

Those dueling emotions warred in my chest. “Hey, Maddy.”

“Good to see you, Keyton.” She raised up on her toes even when I stooped down to hug her. She kissed my cheek and leaned against the surprisingly sparsely populated backstage bar where I’d asked the bartender for a bottle and some glasses. “Did you see the show?” Her gaze flicked to the black curtained doorway.

“I saw her.”

Some of the tension evaporated from her pose. “You did?”

“I did. We’re having coffee tomorrow.”

“That’s great. Amazing.” Her smile lit up neon-sign bright before dimming a hint. She stood straighter, smoothing her hands down a more relaxed look than she’d worn the last time I saw her. “I know things…I know things between you two were…unresolved.”

“I think her letter came through loud and clear.” Like a cannon ball to the chest.

“She—” Maddy pinched her lips together. “Never mind.” She exhaled on what sounded like a ghost of a laugh like some inside joke had been told that I wasn’t privy to. “It’s for you two to figure out. If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that no one can force two people to sort through their past before they’re ready.”

The Hate of Loving You (Falling, #3)The Hate of Loving You by Maya Hughes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely perfect!

This has been a fantastic series and this was the perfect ending. I laughed, cried, got angry and smiled at this beautifully written last book. I am so sad to see bay and Dare end and most likely will do a reread, that is how much i have enjoyed this series. If you haven’t checked out this authors work before you should really give this series a chance. You may just find your next favorite book. My heart is so happy right now, i highly recommend this.

ABOUT 

I don’t deserve her forgiveness, but I can’t stop myself from fighting for it.

Bay ran from me four years ago and I can’t blame her. I broke her heart and my own with one split second mistake.

If I were a better guy, I’d walk away and let her live her life, but maybe I haven’t learned my lesson yet because I can’t stop thinking about her. And I won’t stop until she knows how much I still love her.

The sins of my past are hard to run from, but I’ll battle every single one, if it means one more chance with her.

The Sin of Kissing You is the second book in the new Fulton U universe sports romance, Falling trilogy.

 EXCERPT

“Bay.” It sounded like a croak, a rusty gate of a word I hadn’t let myself say out loud in over a year. Somehow it seemed to be one of the few words I could utter in her presence. 

“Let’s not.” Her words were sharp and final, but I couldn’t be this close to her and not talk to her. 

“We need to.” Training camp was a grueling non-stop thirty days I’d prepared myself for. But it also meant she could dodge me as much as she wanted. Knowing she was closer than she’d been in years and not getting to say what I needed to say to her—that would kill me. 

“We don’t need to do a thing. This story”—she gestured between the two of us—“ended back in Greenwood.” 

She tried to push past me, but I couldn’t let her walk away, not yet. I didn’t have a single thing I could say to get her to stay. Not in the way I wanted. Not in a way she deserved.

Staring straight ahead, she pressed her shoulder against the metal doorframe. 

I needed to back off. I needed to get out of the way. But this might be the last chance I ever got to be near her. 

“I’m sorry.” 

Her head snapped to the side. Our bodies were so close. We were sharing the same air, passing it between us like all those nights I’d drawn her, or watched movies with her, or just felt like the luckiest guy in the world because she was beside me. 

“Too fucking bad. Take that apology and shove it so far up your ass you can taste the hair on your knuckles.” Her eyes blazed. Every muscle was tight, radiating the anger she’d let loose with every syllable. 

“Well that was graphic as hell.” The corners of my mouth twitched, nerves getting the better of me. She had a harder edge to her now. Or maybe it was what being around me did to her. 

“I wanted to paint the picture for you.” Her voice was low and biting.

I dropped my arm and stepped out of the doorway, still not giving her a clear path out. I was wrong on so many levels, but once again, I couldn’t stop myself. “Can we talk?” 

“What about how our interaction has gone so far has made you think I have a word to say to you?” 

“I-I thought you might want to talk.” My palms felt like I should have sweat droplets dripping from my fingertips. There were so many things I’d told myself I’d say the next time I saw her. I’d thought I’d have more time. A solid plan in place. Two brain cells to rub together. “Clear the air.” 

Her cheeks were flushed like they’d get when she’d catch me watching her in class, or after I tickled her and she gasped, panting, after finally telling me to stop. Or the way they’d gotten when we’d stood on the football field in our caps and gowns and she told me to walk away.

“About you humiliating me in front of the entire school? About sleeping with me and then breaking my heart?” Her throat worked up and down. “Or about breaking my dad’s guitar?” Her voice broke and I wanted to chop off my own hand for what I’d done. 

Her dad’s guitar. Standing in the sunny, summer afternoon, surrounded by our classmates, she’d told me what I’d done to something that had been such a precious memory of her father, and I’d known that was it. She’d never forgive me, but I needed to know she was okay. “Any of it. All of it.” 

“There’s nothing you can say to fix any of those things. Not a damn thing.”

“Bay.” It sounded like a croak, a rusty gate of a word I hadn’t let myself say out loud in over a year. Somehow it seemed to be one of the few words I could utter in her presence. 

“Let’s not.” Her words were sharp and final, but I couldn’t be this close to her and not talk to her.

The Sin of Kissing You (Falling Trilogy Book 2)The Sin of Kissing You by Maya Hughes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My heart!!!!

I’m in complete awe. This was even better than the first book and I’m actually at a loss for words. My heart bested wildly through this. I ached for these two, hoping, praying for them. Each with their broken hearts and finding a way to mend them. I cried for these two and the ending devastated me. This one has the cliffhanger of all cliffhangers and the next book can’t come fast enough. You have to read this series!

ABOUT 


“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.

EXCERPT


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.

“Delicious.”

~~ Michelle’s Review~~

The Art of Falling For You (Falling, #1)The Art of Falling For You by Maya Hughes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m heartbroken for these two. Bay and Dare have a story that will completely gut you. He’s the football Hod and she’s the girl that doesn’t get noticed. But then he hears her sing and suddenly he can’t stop thinking about her.
I went back and forth on my feelings for these two all the way through the book. I didn’t like that I felt as though Bay was embarrassed to be seen with Dare and I didn’t like his temper in the end. But the heartbreak of these two tore me up and I can’t wait to see where we go next.

COVER REVEAL

Title: The Art Of Falling For You

Series: Falling Trilogy #1

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber

Release Date: March 11, 2021

BLURB


Bay Bishop aka The New Girl is my new neighbor. In her glasses and stage crew black clothes she has 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.

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.

ABOUT 


“Are you sleeping with my daughter?” 

 

Not the question I wanted to hear from my coach. The man holding my pro future in the palm of his hand. 

 

The answer: No, sir.

 

The real answer: I’d sure as hell like to be.

 

Marisa’s been my best friend since third grade. And now she needs my help–and a place to stay. Senior year was supposed to be the year to keep some distance until the season finished and my draft prospects were safe. 

 

But resisting her is becoming impossible. Movie Thursdays under the blankets. Study sessions on my bed. Wild party nights where I kept any guy interested at bay with a single glare. 

 

Her dad can bench my ass for the entire season, so she’s off limits–for now. 

 

She’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. And one heated night, I can’t stop fighting every cell in my body and can’t stop myself from sampling her sexy smile, her sweet smell, and her sultry curves. 

 

We’re walking a tightrope with my future on the line. Let’s just make sure Coach doesn’t find out…

EXCERPT


“My toes are freezing.” She wiggled them against the hard, dark concrete.

I glanced down at her bare feet. If I offered to carry her inside, she’d probably punch me in the balls, so I bit the inside of my cheek, watching for glass or splintered wood on the porch steps. 

Inside, I got her straight to my room and handed her a t-shirt and some boxers before I sent her to shower. 

Her quietness told me just how much she needed to get under the covers—for once she didn’t have a quip or a biting comment. 

The stench of smoke hung heavy in my room, more noticeable now that we were away from the fire. I sniffed my shirt and jerked away from the burning smell. The last thing I wanted was for her to walk in here and be hit with the stink of char. 

I took off my smoke-soaked clothes and grabbed my towel off the back of the door, wrapping it around my waist. I dumped the clothes outside my door and grabbed fresh ones. 

The water in the bathroom shut off and the door opened, the hot, humid air billowing into the hallway. 

She stumbled back in and spotted me, freezing mid-hair-drying. 

Dammit, maybe I should’ve waited to take my clothes off until I’d gotten to the bathroom, but it wasn’t like she hadn’t seen me in just swim trunks before. At least I’d gotten the towel on and she hadn’t walked in on me totally naked like she had last summer after our water balloon battle. 

“My clothes smelled like smoke too. I’m hopping in the shower.”

Seeing her in my clothes did something to me—something that couldn’t be contained by a towel. I clutched my sweats and t-shirt in front of my now-straining erection. My blood pounded in my veins and I didn’t know how I was supposed to spend the night lying beside her. Maybe I should take the couch. I rushed out the doorway, poking my head back in.

“Get into the bed. I’ll be back in a few.” I flicked off the light, blanketing the room in darkness aside from the glow from the hallway.

The shower was quick and efficient and I kept myself from relieving the pressure that had built up when I saw her in my clothes. I cranked it to cold until my cock deflated and I could end my freezing torture.

Climbing out, I picked up her clothes from the floor and dropped them outside my bedroom door. I’d wash them in the morning and see if a gallon of detergent got the smell out. 

If it didn’t, I wasn’t opposed to her wearing more of my clothes until we got her some new ones or she got to go back to her place to see what could be salvaged.

There was no sound in my room. For a second, I thought she might’ve gone downstairs to get something to eat, but then I heard her soft, gentle breaths coming from my bed. 

I hung my towel up and crossed the room. 

Marisa was spread out like a starfish, taking up most of the bed. 

Chuckling, I took her arm and put my hand on her waist, rolling her toward the wall. She grumbled, but let me move her, shifting her pillow and clutching it to her chest. 

If I weren’t a glutton for punishment, I’d have taken a pillow and blanket and gone downstairs to the couch of torture, or I’d have nudged her even further toward the wall and put my back against hers. But I couldn’t help myself. 

Sliding into the bed, I curled my body around hers, wrapping my arm around her. Just for tonight. Just because of how close I’d come to losing her. Just because I couldn’t help myself. 

Her hair smelled like me. As much as I loved that, I’d have to pick up some of her shampoo and soap when I got a chance. 

“Night, Marisa.” Closing my eyes, I breathed deeply, matching my breaths to hers. 

Tonight, I’d hold her in my arms. 

Tomorrow, I’d figure out how to deal with being in love with the coach’s daughter.

The Fourth Time Charm (Fulton U, #4)The Fourth Time Charm by Maya Hughes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve waited patiently for this jewel, LJ and Marissa story was one I couldn’t wait to read. And it’s everything I’d hoped for and more. Friends to lovers is one of my favorite genres and these two are absolutely perfect together. Friends forever, each having feelings for the other but were to scared to Pursue their feelings. Finally they give in and BAM! Not only are they hot together they are fun and genuinely care for each other. I have loved this whole series and this to me was the icing on the cake. Loved it! Loved the characters and adored the story.
