Dare to Fall
From the international bestselling author of the DIMILY series, Estelle Maskame
MacKenzie Rivers seems like she has it all figured out. She has great friends, she’s doing well in school and her handsome ex-boyfriend is desperate to win her back. But something is missing from her life in Windsor, Colorado. And as much as she hates to admit it, that something might be Jaden Hunter. Tall, blond and athletic, a year ago Kenzie was falling fast for him and his crooked smile.
Twelve months later, everything has changed. A tragic accident has destroyed Jaden's family and, despite the way she feels, Kenzie has no idea how to talk to him anymore. She is all too familiar with the impact family tragedy can have on the people she loves, and she can’t bear to go through it again with Jaden. She does the only thing she knows how to do: walk away.
When the pair meet again by chance one night, Kenzie realizes that she can’t ignore her feelings for him any longer. But as she is drawn back into Jaden's life, she finds herself caught between her increasingly volatile best friend, her interfering ex-boyfriend and her own fears about opening up to Jaden.
Will Kenzie dare to fall for the one person she’s so afraid of growing close to?

“Now, let me say I love DIMILY, but what I love more is that Maskame has proven that she is more than a one series wonder. The girl can write. It’s not all stuck in one world. She knows happiness, sadness, pain, heartache, heartbreak, and love. She can develop characters. She can write in places that she doesn’t live, but makes you feel like you are right there … Dare to Fall is an honest look at grief, love, and everything in between. It’s a can’t-miss contemporary.” Fangirlish
“Dare to Fall is a wonderful book that broke my heart at the end of the first chapter (and multiple times throughout) but equally filled it with so much joy and love. It was utterly perfect.” Bookly Cat
“So Jaden… lovely, lovely Jaden … Maskame’s writing had me gripped – I read the book in just two sittings. I HAD to know what was going to happen, especially throughout the last few chapters … a fast paced read that filled my heart with hope and happiness, but definitely did its fair share of heart breaking too.” AmyJaneAlice
“Honest and confronting, Dare to Fall will make you feel every emotion under the sun – from filling your heart with happiness one chapter to completely shattering it the next, Estelle certainly knows how to pack a well-aimed punch right in the feels!

“It’s rare to find a book that leaves you in such an emotional state. It’s even rare to find one that does this AFTER THE FIRST CHAPTER.” Drinking Books
“Well, Estelle has done it again. She has somehow made me fall in love with all these characters and also ripped out my heart… I just fell in love with this book.” The Reader’s Corner
