I need to know why she hates me.
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.

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.
Dare is the popular and talented football player who appears to be living the dream, but appearances can be deceiving. He is a senior in high school and is counting down the day when he can leave town and attend college on a football scholarship. Even though he attends school with Bay and they are neighbors he has never really seen her until the night he saw her in a different light.
Bay has attended the same school for a few years, but she keeps to herself and doesn’t allow many people close. Not only is music her outlet but it is her hope for the future. She and Drew should have nothing in common, but they touch each on a emotional level and you can feel the depth of the connection between them.
This is the first part of a trilogy that allows us to get to know Dare and Bay, their painful pasts and the experiences that have brought them to this point. They take us on an emotional ride that has you invested in them and their relationship and leaves us wondering what the future holds for this remarkable couple.
