The Second We Met – Maya Hughes

45022943. sy475

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 a standalone new adult romance** 

This book is the second book in the Fulton U series which can be read as a standalone but for me the only way to read these books is to read them in order, I read The Perfect First and it got me all excited for the next one and actually the whole series.

I really liked Elle from the moment we met her she took no shit from anyone although that also got her in trouble. When she wasn’t trying to help people and win the Huffington award she liked to call the police on her neighbour Nix when he holds parties.

Nix, boy does he know how to get under Elle’s skin but he also likes to annoy her slightly, after Elle gets him arrested Nix is forced to do reputation rehab by his dad. That gets him straight in the patch of Elle and she is now his boss.

Both of these two were at each other’s throat for a lot of this book and the moment when they finally build a bridge whilst building homes and I love that we had the change between them. I loved the tension between them especially the sexual tension and the moment it built and their first kiss it was legit chills.

I really liked Jules and oh my god when it was revealed that she was The Letter Girl leaving dirty letters to Berk honestly it made me so excited for their book which there will be a review coming for their book because honestly that book hit something different. Anyway back to this book.

I loved the theme through this book of not allowing Marissa to cook and their reaction to it every time makes me laugh. I also can’t wait for LJ and Marissa’s book.

I love Jules and Elle’s friendship it was just so sweet how they were there for each other especially when it came to heartbreak.

Nerf war that was a surprising thing in this book and I love it, I love that they had a nerf war where they had their first kiss and it was perfect. Honestly amazing. I just didn’t see that it would be their first kiss and it was so cute.
