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.

➳A slow-burn college romance in which the word “masterpiece” is not enough to describe such creative ways of making a reader swoon over both characters in which fate has separated, & brought together for a final story plot...
➳When it comes down to slow-burn, angsty romance— this girl is not the biggest fan of them. Now, there are a few times where there are exceptions that I encounter upon and end up absolutely devouring said novel and just fall to my knees with adoration. Ella Maise is that author— that author who has made me do a double take as to what I was reading and how addicted I become to the page on every turn. Not only is this new release of hers an emotional romance that captivates you to keep reading, but the mystery, the comedic side of it all, and also the swoon worthy factor that becomes of Dylan Reed keeps my hands itching for much more and makes my heart flutter at every sweet little thing he says to Zoe, even after life’s obstacles and fate separated them twice making their third encounter as their lucky charm of a number. Third time is the charm anyways, am I right?
➳Two college students, trying to live life to the fullest but also encounter what the true struggles of life come with. Either parents or past relationships, Zoe and Dylan learn how to confide in each other. First as unexpected roommates, then are friends who want nothing more than to be more than just friends. Through Dylan’s eyes, his adoration for Zoe is beyond adorable that I just want to hug him so hard so he knows how much of a swoon and drool worthy of a person he is:

“She was so shy, but it only mad her more attractive and interesting in my eyes…

➳This new romance by the fabulous Ella not only touches the ideal categories of a romance story, but it also enhances on the topics of rape, the struggles of college life, and family problems. Through every turn of the beginning of the novel, I was curious as to wanting to know what the big mystery of Zoe’s is. Once you end up finding out, your eyes just pop out with the biggest climax I have read in such a long time. I found this rather refreshing for a romance novel since I don’t really read plot twists such as this one. I’m glad though that Ella provided it, making this novel even more intriguing to the eye of the reader.
➳When it comes down to the chemistry between Dylan and Zoe, words really cannot say how soothing and heart fluttering everything there is to their relationship. Both express such tenderness to the reader, making you crave more of their passion and love towards each other;
“My heart beats differently for you. It feels different somehow. I know this probably doesn’t make sense, but… it beats louder, wilder when I see you…”

➳Overall, I am beyond satisfied to say that this new novel blew my mind away. Everything I was expecting was thrown out the window, creating a new love for this story filled with so much creativity and proper action that no one should miss out on. I am beyond blessed to have Ella as a friend— not many can say they are friends with authors and I still blush over the fact she actually talks to me— and also as someone who truly knows how to bring the best of everything there is in a romance. Thank you Ella for letting me read your baby, and letting everyone else in to take part of this new journey of yours. Love you always babe!

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

This is the strangest thing, but I think you're going to be my best friend, Zoe Clarke."

Oh Ella, how I've missed your words! If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for the slow-burn. I'm pleased to announce that I got that with this book, and I got it in spades. The Hardest Fall is a sweet, slow-burn friends-to-lovers romance that hit me in all the right places. There's a touch of mystery and angst added into the mix that makes this fun romance even more addicting.
I was hooked from the first sentence (seriously!!!). From the moment Zoe Clarke and Dylan reed met, I knew I was going in for a ride. From strangers to accidental roommates, from friends to best friends to so much more. You can tell how much Dylan adores Zoe, and how much Zoe cares for him. I just want to wrap them in a blanket and protect them from the world.
There were a lot of funny scenes—I can't even tell you how much I laughed— and even more of that swoon-worthy goodness, but there were more serious points in this book that tackled family issues and toxic relationships. There's that mystery surrounding Zoe, as well
What I loved the most about this book is how Dylan and Zoe's romance progressed. They were there for each other and leaned on each other the way only the best of friends do. They were falling in love right before my eyes, and I relished that gradual but consistent build-up from friendship to more. The attraction has always been there, but so was respect and adoration. It made me so happy!
Fellow introverts and friends who are awkward around strangers will relate to Zoe. When faced with strangers, especially strangers who intimidate her, Zoe rambles and says and does things she'd most likely regret. I wanted to stand beside her and whisper, "You can do it.". But once the walls have been torn down, her light shines through. She's a kind, funny, and sweet girl with a pure heart.
Dylan. Oh Dylan. What a sweet boy. He's a dedicated athlete with a laser-sharp focus on his career, a great love for his family, and a strong and dependable personality. There can be no doubt of his feelings for Zoe. I have to admit I wanted to shake Dylan a few moments in the story, but could understand why he did what he did, thought what he thought, given the circumstances. If I were in his position, I would have jumped to the same conclusion.
The Hardest Fall is not just a romance between two people you know are meant to be together. It's about friendship, family, and growing up.
This book made me laugh, giggle, curse in anger, and ache with heartbreak and sadness, and most importantly, it made me crave for pizza in the middle of the night! Prepare yourself for a lot of pizza talk, my friends. Maybe order a box or two and devour it while you read. That way when you're done with it, your stomach is as full as your heart.
Tropes: College, Friends to Lovers, Roommates, Sports—American Football
POV: First Person, Dual POV
Standalone: Yes

3.75 Stars
Overall Opinion: This was a cute friend's to lovers story. It definitely is what I would consider "slow burn", and while I'm never really a fan of that type of story, I didn't mind it that much. That being said -- there still were some parts that felt slow for me. It also felt on the longer side, and it was @ 423 pages on my kindle app. I think some of those slower parts could've been edited out to make it flow a little better. I appreciated how the H was a star athlete but not a manwhore! I liked both of the mcs and was actually happy with the ending. So, overall it was an enjoyable read 😊
Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Zoe and Dylan's story. They have a few embarrassing encounters over the years, and they are shocked to find themselves as new roommates. They form a friendship of sorts and both develop stronger feelings for one another even against their efforts to just be friends. There are some sweet moments, some sexy times, some big secrets revealed, and some drama with friends and family...and they get a HEA ending.
POV: This alternated between Zoe and Dylan's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Good for the most part. It did feel slow in some parts, but I never got to the point that I wanted to skim.
Instalove: No, they are friends that turn into more.
H rating: 4 stars. Dylan. I liked him. I appreciated how he wasn't a manwhore and how he cared about the h.
h rating: 4 stars. Zoe. I liked her. She was quirky, awkward, and sweet.
Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed
Push/Pull: Yes [spoilers removed]
Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. This is definitely a "slow burn" as they don't even kiss until around 73%.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Kind of [spoilers removed]
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Cheating: No
Separation: Yes [spoilers removed]
Possible Triggers: Yes [spoilers removed]
Closure: This had a cute epilogue with what I would call a HEA ending [spoilers removed].
Safety: This one should be either Safe or Safe with exception for most safety gang readers depending on personal preferences.

MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog:
‘THE HARDEST FALL’: Is a standalone full length, sports romance novel by new to me Author Ella Maise. ‘Spoken in Dual Perspectives’
In this we meet, shy, klutzy, kooky, quirky over talkative College Freshman Zoe Clarke.
And Dylan Reed the IT boy around campus. A football player who had a big chance of going pro. He’s gorgeous, laid back and finds himself drawn towards Zoe like no other female before.
The very first initial meeting between these two will be one never to be repeated again, hilarious, unique, and set the story up perfectly for these two characters.
The first time Zoe Clarke saw me my hand was wrapped around my dick.
The second meeting a year later didn't exactly go to plan either, locking eyes with Dylan on campus like a deer caught in the headlights she tries to make her escape only to rush into a group carrying a model building which didn't survive her fumbling escape to get away.
Though they do have their ups and downs when it all comes to that thing called TIMING. Timing for these two was everything. A few bumps and hurdles in the road but in the end they got it right..
Their third meeting yet again one year later like the other two wherever Zoe is involved also had hilarious consequences, but this time involving a towel.
A slow burn, slow swoon, sugary sweet, college romance that had me from the start. Full of angst, twists and turns but in the end these two characters unexpectedly crept into my heart, the amount of times I gigged were countless, definitely an author I'll be reading again in the future.
My heart beats differently for you, it feels different somehow. I know this probably doesn't make sense, beats louder, wilder when I see you.
