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 screw at a time.

***The Second We Met is a standalone new adult romance***

Liz's Audio Review

I just loved reading The Second We Met by Maya Hughes when it first came out. So, when I had a chance to listen to the audio version, I was excited. Narrated by Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder, they truly brought this enemies to lovers romance with steamy chemistry and witty banter to life.

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 decision 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! I loved listening to The Second We Met by Maya Hughes and recommend this a must-read and/or listen!


About Maya Hughes

Maya Hughes

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.
