Dear Jerk Across the Street, sorry for accidentally walking in on you and catching an eyeful of your—equipment. And hard pass on the open invitation to join you in the shower “anytime”, A-hole.

That’s the note I should’ve written. Instead I sent a pleasant and apologetic version.

Had I known Phoenix “Nix” Russo would’ve been the neighbor from hell, I’d have told him right where he could shove my words.

Nix is the big man on campus with everyone lined up at his games to make sure he knows it. Sure, he’s got piercing blue eyes, abs that don’t quit and a smile that could set fire to a set of panties from a hundred yards away, but he’s also the biggest pain in my ass.

Dear Pink-Haired Menace, learn how to take a joke and stop being such a kill-joy…

Elle Masterson called the cops on one of my parties—again. My sweet talking usually gets me out of trouble, but this time it got me into a nice pair of silver handcuffs. Now I’m on a reputation rehab tour with a stop at a spring break community service project.

Guess who’s my new boss?

Now we’re shoulder to shoulder, sweaty, tired and…she’s not anything like I expected. There might just be a heart under that hardass exterior. She’s invading my dreams and I can’t shake the feeling she’s the key to unlocking a piece of me that I’ve hidden away.

It’s only a matter of time until she finds out why I’m really here.

Maybe I can break through her walls and into her heart before that happens…one screw at a time.



The Second We Met is the second book in the Fulton U series by Maya Hughes and it was just as INCREDIBLE as the first book, maybe even slightly more. I am a SUCKER for an enemies-to-lovers romance and let’s just say that this story checked off every single one of my boxes when it comes to this trope. If you are a fan of this trope then you need to get your hands on this story, RIGHT NOW!

Nix and Elle’s story was an addictively captivating story that was full of sexy and hilarious moments between these two. Their back and forth banter wholeheartedly captured my heart, but it was their emotional connection that pulled tightly on all of my heartstrings, causing an intense ache deep in my chest. The steamy hot chemistry between them was absolutely EVERYTHING and I totally hope you all agree with me the second you meet them. They definitely have a HATE AT FIRST SIGHT moment as opposed to your typical LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, but that is what makes this story so amazing. You won’t be able to get enough of these two and even before their story comes to an end you will be begging for more.

This story is considered the second book in the Fulton U series and can certainly be enjoyed as a standalone read, although I do recommend reading the first book, The Perfect Firsts since Reece and Seph’s story is so obviously a MUST READ! Now I cannot FREAKING wait for the next book in the series, The Third Best Thing because I am so ready for more Maya Hughes originals! Her character development and storytelling ability is ALWAYS on point and I just know I will love it!
