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.

Feeling pretty betrayed by this author. If this is the route she was going to take she should have been honest from the first book. I would have just skipped it, and we’d all be happier. Bay is awful and all of the romance is sucked out of this story. I have no intentions of reading this crap because I don’t want them together at this point. Bay is written horribly, as she uses Dare to get ahead and then just bails on him anyway. He will look like an absolute sucker when he takes her back. And k ...more

We’d both made our choices. It was only fair we lived with them, no matter how much we hoped we could take it all back. There was no erasing the past.

What an emotional ride this trilogy has been. Dare I say, it's one of my favorite stories from Maya Hughes to date? Because man, this is just not a story I'd be forgetting any time soon. Bay and Dare are simply unforgettable.
The overwhelming feeling of our past collided with my present, making it hard to breathe. But I ne

❝Being with her was like finding someone singing your name after a lifetime of silence.❞

This song is called I'm in pain but also so damn happy right now, written and produced by me. Second track thanks for putting me out of my misery Maya Hughes coming soon.

The Hate Of Loving You is the final installment in the Falling trilogy, and the last lap of this roller coaster of pain and anguish, giving Bay and Keyton the ending they deserve after so many years of longing and loneliness.

Dare/Keyton and Bay have three books written about them and one thing has stayed consistent through the trilogy and that’s my love for Dare. It didn’t even fluctuate once. Nada. However, Bay... If you read by review of the previous book, you know that my dislike for her skyrocketed. I wanted her to suffer for what she did towards the end of the second book. And she did. And I enjoyed it so much. Hehe.

This trilogy was all payne, no liam. I'm genuinely not even joking, I mean it when I say I need another full length novel of just Bay and Dare being Bay and Dare. 

I waited a MONTH for this book and finished it in what felt like an hour. It's very rare for me to actually cry whilst reading a book, and I doubt I'll cry again this year because all my tears are left soaked in the pages of this book.

This book, leave alone the entire trilogy, brought me to tears so many times. Not just sad tears, ha
“All my life, I’ve waited to find the one person who believed in everything I was enough that I could believe it, too. The day I found you was the day I finally stopped living and came alive.”

I can't believe we've reached the end of Bay and Dare's journey :( The Hate of Loving You was, like the rest of the Falling trilogy, an intense rollercoaster of emotions that had me on a chokehold the whole time. A couple of chapters in, and I was already in tears. HOW AM I GOING TO MOVE ON FROM THEM??

Final Trilogy Review
I have said it once, twice, and for the final time: This is Maya Hughes's best work to date.
I can always count on Maya to give readers an entertaining and engaging romance with a HEA. Some may have a few more bumps than others, but always a great read.

For those of you who follow my reviews and read my profile, I have preferences for angst, emotional, slow-burn romance - meaning I read very little. For me, there needs to be a hook to keep me engaged, count on the characters t

I'm going to start by saying I really loved previous two books and Keyton is Maya best guys. Now rant begins, six years is too much of time jump.
They spend more time from each other than together but act like no time has passed and like they are teens.
Bay is never wrong even when she is Maya makes it like Keyton is asshole for not talking to her or drama by the end...he isn't teenager makes no sense for him to act like that.
I can't talk about this book anymore I'm tired.

Being the last book in Bay and Keyton's trilogy I'm going to try and keep this short so I don't spoil anything. What I liked from this story was the characters, Bay and Keyton had a lot to work on and I thought the way that was portrayed was enjoyable. They kept me intrigued and also guessing on how exactly they would be able to work out their issues. The chemistry they shared in the previous books was still there and I so loved that. It really pulled me into their

I will admit that I was skeptical going into this book on how Maya was going to redeem Bay after the way things ended in the last book because man that was rough. But I'm happy to say not only did Bay redeem herself she had me rooting for the HEA she and Keyton both deserved.

I loved Keyton in the Fulton U series, there was always an air of mystery surrounding him and as we discovered in the first two books of the trilogy there is so much going on in his life that it definitel

I absolutely loved this book! Every single emotion is written within these pages. You will feel it all. Bay and Keyton's journey put my poor heart through the ringer. I cried so many tears while reading their story. But it just goes to show you that if you're willing to put in the work, then you can get through anything. What else can I say? This story is brilliant. Maya Hughes is brilliant. I have no more words except... READ THIS TR

I don't know if I'm feeling more relieved to finally be at the end of that roller coaster or miserable that my time with Bay and Dare has come to an end. I seriously hate trilogies. I feel like I have spent the last three months waiting for Maya to put my bleeding heart back in my chest. Only for her then to pull it back out, play a little football with it and tell me to wait a month to see what happens next.

So yeah I'm glad the wait is over and I can kiss the tarmac under my feet in relief. But

destiny brought keyton and bay together again once, and it does it again six years later. their lives are a mess of travelling, hotels and managers, but keyton and bay can’t let go of each other, and this might the last shot they have at the relationship they both have been longing for.

"I loved him so much it hurt. Being away from him was like being dragged underwater and flailing for the surface. Seeing him again felt like I'd finally been able to surface and gulp down fresh, clean air. And now that I'd had my first lungful in forever, I couldn't go back."

What a beautiful heart-pounding finale to Bay and Dare's journey. My heart was aching with every page. This is everything I could’ve hoped for and more. I could not put this down for a second. Dare and Bay have got

Get ready for the grand finale/HEA these two characters deserve!! M Hughes does not pull any punches from the first chapter on. Do not let the time jump deter you!!! These characters both needed to grow before they could come back together and that they did! Keyton's vulnerability will make you cry and swoon, and Bay's self-awareness and character development will make you want to stand up and cheer for her.

I have to start by saying this is my favorite couple by Maya so far and I don't think that's going to change anytime soon, bay and dare were really beautiful characters and even if their story was really sad I love how they were developed through the books.
this book takes place six years after Bay left Dare, I'm going to be honest, 6 years it's a looong time so I thought it was going to annoy me a little bit, but knowing what the characters did in those years and how they healed of their past tr

This trilogy took my heart from book one but this final book has my soul! Bay and Keyton’s love story deserved this epic trilogy and I’m so happy Maya took the time to flesh it all out over these 3 beautiful books! I couldn’t imagine it told any other way!

No other love has swept me up like these two! Their hardships I wasn’t sure could ever be overcome! I even imagined it going a whole different route but this ending was epic and one of the most beautiful! The emotions that proud through the pa

Well, I took my time writing this review for obvious reasons since this is the last book of Bay and Keyton but hopefully not the last we will see of them, but still I have so many things to say but I will try to keep it short.

I would like to start by saying that baydare or keytonbay has a special place for me. Maya Hughes truly did a wonderful work with them and for that, they're Maya's favorite couple and above all books. It was kind of different since they got three good meanwhile in Fulton u

The final book in the Falling Trilogy. Following Bay and Keyton's story as they grow and change through the years. The events of their journey shaping them into the people they are and adding to their relationship dynamic. Similarly to the other books in the series the pairs story sends us on an emotional roller coaster.

Overall The Hate of Loving You and the entire series provides us with a delightful, for filling story.

What a journey this story has been...
Bay and Keyton's story was painstakingly spread out over the course of this trilogy but I'm so glad for it. We really got to focus in on their relationship and how their past had affected who they are. We could have gotten a quick and easy HEA but this felt more deserved. They did the hard work to forgive each other and build a stronger foundation.
We kind of know what comes along with being famous with tabloids and demands from your fandom, but I found this

This one started off with a lot of angst. But the story itself was really a lot different than the first two in the series. Because really for most of the story, the big conflict was just how crazy Bay’s life was as a musician. Even more-so than Keyton’s life as a professional football player. And that right there was where the surprising difference of the story was for me.

I don’t want to give a lot away, you need to read the first two books. But this one had some of the angst, just not quite th

Okay, I’ll probably be in the minority. I struggled with this series a little bit and I was just nervous about Bay and Keaton since book 1.

With the way things ended in the previous book, I knew it was going to be a tough start. And I was just about heartbroken right from the beginning. I was already so mad about Bay and the decision she made at the end. And it was justified even more when this book starts. Sighhhhhhh.

But I was more than ready for them to hopefully heal and get to their happily e

Who wants to read a three book series where the characters are out screwing other people? And this heroine? Reallly, I think she is probably my least favorite ever. She is selfish and has narcissistic tendencies. She only cares for herself. I hated every bit of success she gained. She did it by breaking the heroes heart in book two. She deserved to be sleeping on the streets not mega successful. I like string alpha men and she mad he look so weak seriously. Plus they both had lined in with

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.

This is 3rd and final book of the falling trilogy. Bay and Keyton come back in each other's life after six years. They are both living their dreams and don't want to let themselves get hurt again but at the same time they can't let each other go.

Keyton's character development was great. He really worked hard make himself a better guy. Obviously there were ups and downs in this book too, Bay is a rock star will a hectic schedule but it all worked out in the end. After all the heartbreak and hurt
