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.
Writing has become my world and I can’t imagine myself doing anything other than giving life to new characters and new stories. You know how some things simply makes your heart burst with happiness? A really good book, a puppy, hugging someone you’ve been missing like crazy? That’s what writing does to me. And all the hard work, all the sleepless nights, all the anxiety…everything is worth it at the end. And I’m hoping that reading my books will leave you with that same happy feeling.

I. Love. Dylan. He’s mine and you can’t have him. Not even if your name is Zoe. I’ve claimed him. He is the sweetest guy, nowhere near a player like the usual jock trope. He is an admittedly “one woman” guy. The SWEETEST guy. He plays football, wide receiver, and is destined to be in the NFL. Although he meets Zoe twice before, things haven’t lined up for them to get together. At the beginning of his senior year, things finally seem to line up for these two… maybe.
Zoe is awkward as hell. She is awesome, but can’t seem to keep her mouth shut when she’s in the same room as Dylan. Two awkward and completely embarrassing encounters later, and Zoe sees Dylan again. And she’s just as completely ridiculous as you would hope from her. And it doesn’t stop there. Due to some circumstances neither one was expecting, they end up living together.
I have to admit, although I loved Zoe and Dylan, I almost didn’t finish reading. I was going to PM the author and ask for some spoilers or something so I could keep reading because I really did love them. There were just some issues I had with the book, but because of plot twists and part of the suspense of the book, I can’t really talk about which issues I had with it. (This book releases on the 20th so when ya read it please message me on Facebook so we can talk as you read.)
I gave this book 5 stars, because even though I wanted to put it down, I couldn’t. I was so completely and totally invested in everything that had to do with these two. From the very first page, their very first encounter, I was hooked. I’ve never read anything from Elle Maise before, but I’m currently stalking her now. Because I’m gonna need more.
Basically, this book was funny, awkward, cringe inducing, plot twist central and it was SO good. So go get it. Add it to your TBR. You’ll love it.
