I don’t deserve her forgiveness, but I can’t stop fighting for it.

Bay ran from me four years ago and I can’t blame her. I broke her heart and my own with one split second mistake.

Now we’re thrown together for four weeks. Training camp after the draft is the final step to cement my pro football careers, but after seeing her again, she’s the only future I want.

Just when I thought Maya Hughes already did the most with TAOFFY, she really blew her writing out of the water in this one. After the first book, I had some expectations for TSOKY but Maya Hughes took it up a notch. IT FELT LIKE MY HEART GOT SHOT OUT THE ENTIRE TIME.

The story continues right from where we left off in the first book but if you were to see it from a timeline, it comes after the last book in the Fulton U series. Keyton and The Brothel gang have already graduated from FU and are now

"The perfect beginning. The perfect story. The perfect love. But it wasn't ours. And no amount of wishful thinking would make that the story anyone would write about us. But as messy as our story was, it still just that- ours."

The Sin of Kissing You is the second installment in the Falling trilogy. Bay and Dare meet again, four years later. Dare, now going by Keyton has graduated from Fulton University and is picked up by Los Angeles' professional football team. His football training camp is bei

My love for Dare increased by 1000000%. If you open a dictionary and look for the definition of Loyal you will find this man’s name as an example. This book he did everything he could to earn Bay’s forgiveness. Literally EVERYTHING, no matter the consequences he might face for himself.


Bay. Bay. Bay. GIRL..... All the love I had for this woman has evaporated. Gone.
The next BOOK I really really really really REALLLLYYY hope she understands how selfish she has been and grovel.

It's as if Maya Hughes woke up one morning and said "wow, it seems like a good day to make people suffer THREE TIMES THE NORMAL 🥰."

bay was so selfish, unlikeable, self-absorbed, and cowardly in this, the love i had for her in book one has gone and idk if she can even make a comeback.

in the next book, i want bay's career to have flopped (yes i'm that salty). i want dare to be happy playing football, being rich, overcoming the trauma from his dad, and give his heart to someone else because bay sure as fuck doesn't deserve his pure, loyal, and trustworthy self.

The Sin of Kissing You is the second installment of the Falling Trilogy so I won't say too much since I don't want to spoil anything. But what I can say is that I absolutely adored Dare in this book. I feel like we got to see a deeper emotional side to his character and it had me falling for him even more. I also really loved Bay and seeing how she's grown and where her path is leading her in life.

There were definitely some angsty moments that had me on the edge of

“Sometimes it felt like love could fix everything, but part of me knew it was a lie I’d told myself before”

I’m just speechless…

I don’t even know how to describe what I just read.

This was the most real , passionate and hurting journey ever.

“The only person keeping me from drowning was the same one who’d caused the deluge.”

I really felt like I was there with Bay and Dare, going through the same things.

It was so emotional , I don’t think words can describe all the feelings and all the little things
“I wanted to grab her, pull her close and tell her I’d never stopped loving her, not even when I thought I didn’t deserve it.”

The Sin of Kissing You is the second installment of the Falling trilogy, and once again, Bay and Dare own my whole heart, and I want to give them thousands of hugs. TAOFFY ended with the biggest cliffhanger, so you bet I was EAGERLY waiting for TSOKY to come out. It was perfect and exceeded all my expectations. Maya Hughes never disappoints!

Oh my WOW!!!! I was left speechless by the ending of this book! I kept trying to scroll down and there were no more words to my utter dismay. My heart was in my throat for most of this story, but I just wanted MORE.

STOP - if you did not read Book 1, The Art of Falling for You, you MUST read that first. This is a trilogy, in order, no skipping stuff.

Okay, you read it? Let's move on.

Maya Hughes wrecked me.

This is one of the most emotionally involved trilogies I have ever read. It is engaging, steamy, wishful, and heartbreaking. As a reader in book 1, you are happily wishing these opposites attract and stick. In book 2, you are hopeful that fate has them finding each other and stick. I know Maya

Maya Hughes somehow managed to increase some intense emotions in this second installment without fail. But the overall content reminded me of my distaste for trilogies, because this couple is more ruined than ever. If angst-ridden romance is your weakness, you may find this an irresistible read, as it overruns your senses and invades your thoughts.

I disliked this book more the due to 4year jump, little insight into their growth (Bay clearly held a grudge and hasn’t changed but Dare still struggling with his anger, showed growth) and selfish awful Bay. Bay is the absolute worse. I hate her. She seemed selfish in book 1, but this time around it shows what kind of person she is and I don’t like her. So many chances Bay. Dare had some groveling to do but I can say the same about Bay because she wasn’t innocent and had no remorse or guilt for ...more

This second installment of the trilogy shows us how Bay and Dare are reunited. There’s a lot of groveling, especially from Dare, and he does everything in his power to show Bay that he means it. Omg, I just to jump in this book and give him a big fat mummy hug. He’s trying to solve everything on his own and is not relaying on anyone!!

The Sin of Kissing You is the second book in the Falling trilogy by Maya Hughes. This second book starts right where the first book ended, four years after the events in The Art of Falling For You, when Dare and Bay see each other again as he is attending training camp with the team he got drafted by, and staying at the residence that Bay is currently in charge of. Since both of them are obliged to live in close quarters, Bay choses to avoid Dare at any cost since she cannot let go of the past a ...more

So this was a book I was eagerly anticipating and I'm so lucky I got the arc because being back with dare and bay again was everything.

Maya Hughes knows how to weave a story filled with angst, emotional and sexual tension and Dare/Bay had that in buckets.

Dare, my poor broken boy. I was so so proud of him in how he was trying to right his wrongs and how he was striving to be a better person in regards to his anger issues. He fought for what he has and he worked for it and I just love how we say

In the past couple of months I’ve found only a few books which have managed to make me feel something. This one is at the top of that list. Frustration, heartbreak, pain. All of the above.

The Sin of Kissing You is the second installment in the Falling series following Dare and Bay and if you thought that The Art of Falling for you was painful, wait until you get your hands on this one.

Dare and Bay are such complex characters who deserve the world. Dare is probably one of my all time favorite ch
I wasn’t a fan of Bay in this story. I thought she focussed on what was important for her and nothing else. Selfish and self centred she had become but she was also a coward and a hypocrite.

She needed to catch up to being a 22 year old adult in this book and stop acting like an aggrieved teenager. Her petulance I thought, was overdone.

My heart bled for Dare. He would give anything and do anything for her but she didn’t appreciate him enough or what he sacrificed or her.

I’m sobbing my eyes out! If you thought book 1 was emotional, HA! Book 2 is a roller coaster of emotion that will leave you panting. I am beyond obsessed with this couple and I can’t wait for book 3!

When a tiny slither of hope finally shines Dare does all he can to win Bays heart again! His demons though come back full force and might be his undoing after all he’s worked hard for!

Bays dreams are finally becoming a reality and tough choices lie ahead for both her and Dare! The future is unknown

The Sin of Kissing You is the second book of the Falling trilogy, and it continues Bay and Dare's story. We could say that the first book, TAOFFY, was about the beginning of their story and, TSOKY is the continuation of it.

Bay and Dare's story continues in this the second piece of their trilogy. You must read book one, The Art Of Falling before you read this book because that ending is right where we pick up. These two really put your emotions through the wringer as the struggle their own separate histories, their painful breakup and the massive amount of feelings that stem from it all.

After finishing this book I am not sure what I feel at the moment. All I know is that in the final book Bay better rights the wrongs she made when Dare /Keyton is concerned. That boy (not yet a man because he has a long way to that) has had a though life and all he's doing is trying like hell to make it up to her.

I'll be honest when I read the end of book 1 I thought there is no way for them to repair their relationship. And this book did nothing to prove me wrong. It is still just as angsty an

I was not surprised to see Maya build me up and break me down again over Bay and Dare. It's six years since the last time they saw each other, and it's interesting to see how much the dynamic has changed between them now that there's all this untouched pain and heartbreak between them.
