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.

“Why don’t we sit and we can continue our talk?” I motioned to the four cream arm chairs around a frosted glass coffee table.
Bay nodded and took a seat.
I dropped into one across from her.
She nibbled her bottom lip. “Are you sure you don’t want anything to eat or drink?”
“Maybe for later?” A hopeful edge to her voice.
“I’m sure you’re really busy, so I won’t keep you, but there are some more things I wanted to say.” Things I needed to say to stop being afraid to show her how screwed up I’d been. The fear of her finding out had made me panicky, on edge, and I needed to release all of that to move on. I needed to prove to myself that I could move on, even if every cell in my body screamed to touch her again.
Her palms pressed together and she wedged them between her thighs, scooting to the edge of her chair and nodding for me to go ahead. Her heels bounced up and down, but her gaze was locked onto mine.
My heart raced, but I held onto it and all the words I needed to say. I licked my lips. This was just as hard as those first words I’d needed to say to her back in California.
Review by Gia
The Hate of Loving You is book three in the Falling series. It can not be read as a standalone, you must read The Art of Falling For You and The Sin of Kissing You first. Keyton and Bay's story has been an emotional roller coaster and this one is no different. This one picks up 6 years after the last ends. Bay and Keyton have a chance to see each other again, I have to admit I expected their meeting to go way better than it did but they have another chance to see each other again. I was so hoping for smooth sailing for these two but there is a lot to work through. I was rooting for these two even when they did stuff that I didn't like. I just wanted Keyton and Bay to get a happy ending.

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.
