The Third Best Thing – Maya Hughes

50700718. sy475

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…

So this is the third book in the Fulton U series I read The Perfect First and The Second We Met and honestly this book was highly anticipated. I knew this was going to be the book that destroyed me, I was right. It did destroy me. It broke my heart and mended it back together but I also was not prepared for that. I thought I was but I wasn’t, this is the first book in the series that made me cry also the first book of the year to make me cry although being that this is the 3rd book I’m sure there will be many more.

I had anticipated Jules and Berk’s story from the very first book the groundwork was laid so well for The Letter girl who is Jules. I really like Jules she was so self-conscious of herself which I’m not surprised once you see how her mother behaviours towards her but I hate how much she hates herself but on another thing I think anyone can relate to her in terms of not liking how you look and about learning to love yourself.

Berk he is obsessed with finding out who letter girl is but he also begins to fall for Jules the more time he spends with her and lets letter girl goes. I love how cute and sensitive Berk he is, he’s also fiercely loyal.

Alexis first make an appearance in the very first book but we don’t realise how important she is until she’s in this book where it is revealed that she is Berk’s sister and he does nothing but save her all the time. She is a sore subject for all of his friends and he is fiercely protective of her. She causes some issues in this book between Berk and Jules which I won’t say anymore because spoilers.

I really love how their relationship developed also the near kiss between Berk and Jules in the greenhouse it was the perfect scene but it didn’t happen but honestly the romantic scene was set so perfectly. When their first kiss did finally happen I felt literal got chills, also the sex scenes in this book were hot. Like oh my god they were so sexy and have to admit if I had a boyfriend I would have had a pause in the book. I liked their relationship and the sexual tension between them was just high.

I love that she begins baking and it gets her confidence up, I also love that Berk builds her up at any opportunity as does everyone else around her and she begins to learn to love herself with help. I think that’s my one thing with this book not only do we have the relationship with Berk and Jules the stuff with Alexa and the family thing we also learning to love yourself and it’s the most important thing you could take for yourself to love yourself.

This whole book hit me in the feels I love that Jules repeated Berk’s speech to him about toxic people and decided to remove herself so she wasn’t in a position where she was in a toxic situation and as painful as that was for herself I love that she did it for herself.

This book had me crying it hit me in the feels so much and so far this is my favourite out of the series. It was great to begin the year with this series.
