Cocky football players, school rivalry, and the girls who get in their way... the Raiders are back for one final play!
Mya Hernandez has scars.
The kind that run deep and leave marks.
Rixon is only supposed to be a temporary place to hide, but it's quickly becoming something more.
She's almost certain it has nothing to do with the blond-haired, blue-eyed football player who makes her laugh. Who makes her believe in fairy tales again.
Even if she knows her life is destined to be nothing more than a tragedy.
Asher Bennet has secrets.
Not the scandalous kind, but the ones that fester, slowly eating away at your soul.
In the face of it, he's Mr Popular, always down for a party and causing a little mayhem.
But on the inside, he just wants someone to see him. Really see him. Too bad the one girl who sees past his facade has already friend-zoned him.
It's probably for the best though.
She's everything he wants but can never have.
Until Mya's past and Asher's present collide in ways neither of them saw coming.
And suddenly the thing you need most is the very thing you’re supposed to hate.
Another brilliant addition to the series
I loved these characters. Asher was always a character I wanted to know more about, he was the easy going of the group, the joker, the sidekick, the negotiator, the listener but beneath the surface he is a young man with his own secret worries as we discover and I really enjoyed his story.
Mya is a girl from the hood who moved to Rixon to live with her aunt following a breakup with her childhood friend and boyfriend who was getting heavily involved in gangs. Mya moved away for her safety, for her sanity and most of all for a better future.
Mya Hernandez isn't like other girls in town, not only is she not the typical white girl and hasn't a clue about this football crazed town when she first arrived, she's a young woman with backbone, sass and she becomes friends with and is taken under the wings of Hailee and Felicity who all quickly become good friends.
When Hailee and Cameron, Jason and Felicity fall in love both Mya and Asher become the fifth wheels and have no choice but to spend time with one-another.
Asher comes from a family with money and despite the disapproval from his father he begins to fall hard for Mya and when Asher starts to chase Mya for more than just friendship there's a lot of push and pull, Mya feels she won't fit in Asher's world and its up-to Asher to convince her otherwise.
Just like previous books there is a perfect balance of drama, angst and twists and turns. THE HARDER YOU FALL can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend starting this series from the beginning and experiencing the dynamics of these characters friendships and also the awesome stories of how the other characters also fall in love.
The Harder You Fall was completely worth the wait, I love this authors ability to hook you from the very first pages. A definite recommended angsty series for any High school YA/crossover book lovers.
