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 green 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.

WOW!! This is my first Maya Hughes book and she has made it to my “must one-click” list!! I live for enemies to lovers romances and this had it all, I fell hard for Nix and Elle! Their chemistry, amazing. Their banter, hilarious & frustrating. The way they finally opened up to each other, priceless. This story grabbed from the first chapter and I just could NOT put it down. I’ll be going back and reading the first book in the Fulton U series (each book can be read as a standalone) and many more of Maya’s books!

Liz's Review

The Second We Met by Maya Hughes is an enemies to lovers romance with steamy chemistry and witty banter. The second Elle met Nix, she thought she had him all figured out. Cocky, confident and charming, the sexy football player drove her crazy. If she never saw him again, life would be good. Elle’s previous relationships may have colored how she saw the men in her life, but even with her tough exterior, she was truly vulnerable.

For about a year and a half, Nix and Elle were all but enemies. When she has enough, she makes a decisions that puts Nix front and center in her life. Could she have been wrong about Nix all this time? I loved the back and forth between them and watching them fall as they break down each other’s walls. I also loved the secondary characters and I can’t wait to see what is in store for them!

Excerpt
“I’ve missed this,” he whispered against my lips. 
“Me too.” 
His fingers tightened around the hair at the base of my neck. Tilting my head to the side, he ran his lips over my skin, sending shivers down my spine. 
One second we were standing in the middle of the pitch-black room and the next the whole world tilted. I landed against Nix’s solid chest.
“Are you okay?” I tried to push myself up.
He tightened his hold around me. “The stress balls, sweatpants, and t-shirts cushioned my fall.”
“Thank you for today.” I peppered his jaw with kisses.
“Thank you for letting me do this for you.” The outline of his erection pressed against the front of my mound. Just one inch higher… 
He wrapped his hands around my waist and lifted me, perfecting the angle.
I shuddered and ground my hips against him. Someone walked by the door, but we didn’t stop—couldn’t stop.
His hands cupped my ass, dragging me harder against him. The texture of his jeans added extra sensation against my clit. I was on fire for him through two layers of clothes. 
My short gasps and his low groans were the only sounds in the room other than the fabric friction. 
“We should get back out there.” I raked my teeth along the side of his neck. 
“You’re probably right.” His hips shot up and I wanted to scream in frustration that he wasn’t inside me, but I didn’t want to break from the thrumming pleasure rushing all over my body. 
“In a second.” 
“In a minute.” His tongue danced with mine in time to the rhythm of our hips. Laughter rang out in the hallway behind the door, but I couldn’t stop. If someone came in, there wasn’t anything that would stop me from dry-humping Nix into next week.
