Publisher's Summary

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 hard-ass 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 stand-alone new adult romance.

Agonizing. Not worth the credit.

I liked Jason Clarke (Nix) as narrator but could not figure out if Emma Wilder (Ellie) always sounded whiny or if she was playing the role.

While I understood the plot and the general characters in the first three chapters, I hoped that the story would develop into something more than a rich jock football player hounded by an ever bearing Dad and hated yet adored by an insecure penniless neighbor who let her life be ruined by two guys who cheated on her in high school and college. Yet ironically Ellie longed for the Phoenix, the QB football senior who kept condoms in his wallet and lived in a frat house.

Unfortunately, there were no surprises. Over time she felt more and more distrust for him as he tried harder and harder to live her. They would have great sex and the next day she would be writing him off for a trivial event On and on and on.

I purchased this based on positive prior reviews, but felt it was a waste of time let alone a credit.

The Second We Met

The Second We Met is the second book in the Fulton U series. This book is told from dual points of view from Phoenix "Nix" Russo and Elle Masterson.

Nix and Elle meet when she shows up at his house thinking it's hers and finding him just getting out of a shower. He calls her B-A-E for Breaking and Entering throughout the book. Nix is a popular football star and Elle is hardly surviving with all the volunteer work she is doing to try to get a grant to better her future.

Nix and Elle don't have a great start as she calls the cops on him frequently for the parties he has as they are neighbors. After he is carted off in cuffs he has to do some volunteer work to refine his image and Elle just happens to be there. They get to know each other.

They start to have feelings for each other, but Elle has been burned in the past. Can she learn to trust that Nix isn't out to get her? Can Nix teach Elle that he isn't the bad guy she seems to think he is.

I enjoyed this book, and am excited to listen to the next one in the series.

Annoyed by Heroine

I wanted to find Elle endearing but she annoyed the snot out of me and I struggled to understand why he was so into her.

Hilarious

This book was funny, sweet, sexy and probably one of the best enemies to lovers books I have read. Loved Nix and Elle’s animosity toward one another that heats up fast. Great performance by Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder.

Explosive

I loved this enemies to lovers story so much. Jason Clark and Emma Wilder bring these characters to life in a way I could have never imagined. Elle and Nix live across the street from each other in a college row. Wild parties show up at Nix’s house and Elle doesn’t have time for that distraction so she calls the authorities to take care of things. Needless to say, Nix can’t understand why she is so stand offish. Elle can’t see beyond his position on the football field and everything that entails. She couldn’t be more wrong. I love how these two develop throughout this story. It isn’t always easy but nothing worth having ever is.

Good pastime

This second book of this series was ok. It was romantic and easy to listen. Not as fabulous that first book, but ok. Why? As first book ”Perfect first” had really good lead characters and deeper plot, this book’s lead characters annoyed me from time to time and plot was quite straightforward. Both readers were really good, once I got used to that they are now different characters than first book. :) Anyway I enjoyed it a lot. This was nice and easy love story to listen.

Sweet, Fun and Sexy!

This is the second book in the Fulton U Series, an amazing New Adult and College Romance. Nix and Elle's enemies-to-lovers story is hilarious, sweet, and sexy. Nix, a cocky quarterback, is handsome, sexy, and caring. Elle is a complex character, feisty, strong, beautiful, and vulnerable, with trust issues. She definitely is a tough cookie. I loved their banter, and I loved to follow them in their journey. The ending is beautiful. The supporting characters are great. Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to to Jules and Berk's story.

Witty and steamy enemies to lovers romance!

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!

Happy listening!

Nix and Elle!

Nix’s father was a professional football player and he has been groomed since he was a child to follow in his footsteps. Trying to balance the demands it places on his body against the expectations of his father has him wondering how everything will play out.

Elle is a serious student who has her eyes set firmly on the future however the present is becoming a little hard to manage. Being Nix’s neighbor is a test of her patience and she has grown weary of the noise and parties coming from his house, but she never expected that calling the police would have them working together.

When Nix is tasked with volunteering for his spring break to escape a small altercation with the law he never expected his boss would be the one person who was responsible for him being there. Let the fun begin!

Sweet and sexy there is no denying that Elle and Nix belong together but finding a way to balance their present and future may be the biggest challenge of all. The performance of the narrators draw you in and made a great story even better.

🍯 ♡ 🍯 Sweet as honey!!! 🍯 ♡ 🍯

Lordy did I love this story! Nix was just as charming and as dashing as you'd expect from a quarterback but he was incredibly sweet and caring and only showed his douchery on occasion. Elle is quirky and exhausted. She definitely put Nix in his place a few times and he ended up completely smitten with the only girl on campus not tripping over her feet to tell him how amazing he was. Elle wasn't tossing out the compliments where Nix was concerned. But the more they spen around each other, the more they start to depend on each other. Elle struggles with some trust issues. Nix seems to demand the spotlight even when he doesn't want it. 

I laughed so much with these too. I found myself smiling wistfully. They were enchanting together, just sweet as pie... or honey! Let's seriously not forget that when they came together it was a whirlwind of tension, heat, and a wanton passion that shocked the both of them. Maya Hughes sets us up perfectly for the next book with Jules and Berk. These two have already set my interest on high alert! I can't wait to see what he thinks when he find his naughty-letter writing vixon! 

Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder are fantastic together. They sound JUST like I imagine Elle and Nix or perhaps I now imagine them as the characters they played because they fit so flawlessly. Nix (played by Clarke) was on an emotional roller-coaster at times and Jason really executed that wonderfully. Same with Elle and Emma, really. The emotion was felt all throughout the story!!
