💋 ABOUT 🏈


Our star-crossed love is my first and I want him to be mine.

A new college campus. A secret bound to explode in my face. And a football player neighbor who is bad news in the best of ways.

Reid Riddick was hotness personified, so of course I literally ran into with him–well, more like he plowed into me.

I didn’t know he was a football player when I started falling and now I can’t stop. A stolen kiss later and my heart races whenever he looks at me from across the quad.

But my secret would spell disaster for him.


Christie’s Review

5 STARS

I’m a huge fan of Maya Hughes, and Kiss and Tell is exactly why!! She has such a talent for building a great story around great characters. 

I loved her Fulton U series, and now she introduces their rivals in this series. I can honestly say I unashamedly fell in love them just as much as I did my Fulton boys and girls. 

Reid has one goal in his sight…earn a spot in the pros. He wants to take care of his father just as his father has always taken care of him. That means no girls and especially no dating. Everything is going as planned until he literally runs into his new neighbor, Leona.

Leona has a goal too…to make up for lost time with her father. She has been separated from him for years. She wasn’t expecting Reid either. Their involvement will definitely raise eyebrows as her father is the president of the university. She wants people to like her for who she is, not who her father is. Not to mention, the football coach hates her father. As you might imagine, their journey to a HEA won’t be an easy one, but it will be one that you will want to accompany them on. 

Part of the magic of Maya Hughes is her ability to make me fall in love with not only her main characters but her secondary characters as well. I have a connection with them even before I really know them, whetting my appetite for more of their stories! 

Not only is there romance in this book, but I got a glimpse of the dark side of college athletics in the form of their college football coach. His story isn’t finished in this book, but I am hoping he gets what is coming to him. In addition, there is a hint of a mystery. There is a gossip site that knows a lot of the secrets on campus, and I can’t wait to find out their identity. 

As usual, I hate telling the crew good-bye, but I know I will be returning before too long! Another victory for Maya Hughes!!!!

💋EXCERPT🏈


 


I inhaled deeply and sunk deeper against him, knowing I shouldn’t let myself. He smelled like grass and leather and Icy Hot, but there was also an underlying sweetness. I was tempted to press my nose to his chest and suck in a lungful of Reid.

I wished we weren’t in a freezing cold garage, but back in my bed after we’d passed out watching District 9 or The Abyss. Or maybe after taking things a bit further. 

He yawned, rubbing his hand down my back. “Hey, we made it.” 

I scooted back a little and looked up at him, trying not to be self-conscious about my morning breath. “We did. Thanks for not letting me freeze.”

“What kind of teammate would I be if I let you turn into a popsicle?” 

“A terrible one. Now I know why the guys keep you around. You’ll do anything for the team.” I meant it as a tease, but it was also a reminder of why we couldn’t be together. 

“I will.” He didn’t unlock his hand from around mine. The smooth glove glided over the back of my hand. 

Staring into his eyes, all the feelings I’d been trying to suppress came rushing back. They flooded my veins and sparked my nerve endings. 

His head dipped lower so our foreheads almost touched. I’d never thought mine was sensitive before, but now I could feel every graze and skim. 

Our noses brushed, and I swore I could feel the flutter of his eyelashes.
