Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?

Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I’ve roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.

There’s only one problem–I’m falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder.

My notes were supposed to be a one time thing. A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter’s night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.

Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.

She’s the girl next door.

He’s my secret pen pal.

Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked…


The Third Best Thing is the newest installment in Maya Hughes highly anticipated (at least in my opinion) Fulton U series and with each new release I find myself falling more in love with this group of characters and their stories! This author is a true storyteller, intertwining little tidbits about future stories (and characters) with each new release, ensuring that we are already deeply invested and in love with her characters when it’s finally their time to shine. Let’s just say when Jules and Berk’s story released, I was already hopelessly in love with them and could not wait to see how their story played out because I knew it was going to be EVERYTHING!

Maya Hughes always manages to capture my heart and soul with her words and this story had me hooked even before I started reading because I already formed a deep connection with Jules and Berk in The Second We Met. These two beautiful souls were PEFECT for one another and I just knew that their story was going to have some twists that pulled on my heartstrings. Can I just say that Jules mom (and sister at times) were complete B*TCHES and my heart hurt for her. No one should EVER be disrespected like that because of their weight. You are beautiful just the way you are Jules! And Berk, my goodness I though my heartstrings got a work out because of him. My chest painfully burned because of what he had to go through growing up. I just wanted to reach through my fun and give these two a big hug because I loved them!

There is so much more I could say, but right now I am still at a loss for words so I will just say this…YOU NEED TO GO BUY THIS STORY RIGHT NOW!
