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.

Britt’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Enemies to lovers ✔️
Hot football star✔️
Sassy, strong, intelligent heroine✔️
Seriously fun giggle inducing moments✔️
Bring a tear to your eye emotion ✔️
Maaaaaajor swoon ✔️✔️✔️
The Second We Met has a bit of everything I love in a good read and then some! Even when I wanted to bash Elle and Nix’s heads together I still freaking adored them. From trading barbs to adorable sweetness the chemistry these two have pretty much just takes over every time they’re together.

Ari’s  🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Take my money and sleep, Maya Hughes. From the moment I read the prologue I was hooked! This is a “cover to cover” book. You just won’t be able or want to put it down!

I loved this couple so freaking much! Elle was outstanding. She’s strong and has plenty of sass to go around. And Nix…wow. He’s everything I want in a book boyfriend and them some! He’s a cocky and handsome jock with a heart of gold that gave me all the swoons. Together he and Elle were either frustrating the fudge out of me or giving me all the swoons and feels. Sometimes at the same time. It was freaking great!

This was a really fun enemies to lovers romance with an awesome book boyfriend you’ll be drooling and fighting over to add to your collection. 4 stars.

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.
