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 happens…one screw at a time.

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

I was late to the Fulton U party, but I guarantee that won’t happen again.  I absolutely love not only this book, but this whole group of characters. They were funny, loveable, and left me longing for more!

Nix and Elle were fantastic.  They may have started off as enemies, but those sparks were destined to ignite.  And when they did, they were so hot! I absolutely loved watching the evolution of this couple!  Their journey from enemies to friends to happily-ever-after was extremely satisfying. Maya gave us the engaging character growth I’ve come to expect from her.  Both characters were interesting on their own in addition to the developing love story between them. I loved learning about their difficult pasts as it explained so much about the choices they were currently making.

The side characters add so much to this story.  Not only do they show us more about the main characters, they are so engaging on their own.  I can’t wait to go back and read The Perfect First, and I’m so excited for all the the Fulton U books yet to come!
