Publisher's Summary

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. Hard.

Contains mature themes.

Very predictable

The story was good, not great but good. I had high hopes for it but it fell short with it. The guys voice made me cringe every time he spoke as Zoe. That almost made me quit listening every time

Missed you Ella Maise

Great story, very likable characters, depth in supporting friends.....will we get to hear/read Chris’s story? I hope so. I read/listen to Maise’s other books at least annually and this one made it to the repeat list too. Well done! It helps that I really like these Narrators too.

The Hardest Fall

Good storyline. I laughed a lot. The narrators Alexander Cendese, Lidia Dornet, brought a brilliant spin with there voices. I liked Dylan Reed. He was a strong leading man. Zoe Clarke not so much. She was so insecure it was painful. In the end she grew on me. I could understand her more once I heard her story. Yes, it's worth a credit.

Perfect!!!

I loved the way all the parts of the story came together - and the story was a good one too. It had all the elements I think makes a great story, so excellent job Ella Maise. I also wanna thank you for writing stories like these to help persons like myself believe that we will find our "dream men" one of these days, without having to settle.

And how could I forget the narrators. Thank you both expander Cendese and Linda Sorbet for bringing your awesome narrative skills to this book. Your contribution has definitely helped to enhance the experience.

It’s usually the females voicing men that bother me

Had more difficulty getting into this novel, and then I realized why. The man narrating made Zoey sound like Harvey Fierstein. Disconcerting, to say the least.

Decent college romance

3.5 stars. As far as a college romance goes, this is a good one. It was a little slow getting to the relationship stage, but I don’t mind a build up to a relationship as it makes it feel more real by the end. The story picked up pace by the end and I got more interested in the story. It had the typical lack of communication drama which gets a bit annoying in romance stories. I had just listened to ‘To hate Adam Connor’ by the same author, which was great, but this book didn’t live up to that unfortunately. I’ll definitely listen to more by this author though.
