The Second We Met
That’s the note I should’ve written. Instead I sent a pleasant and apologetic version.

The Second We Met is book two in the Fulton U series by Maya Hughes. I loved the first book in this series and knew I was going to love Nix and Elle’s story. I was most definitely correct! This is an enemies to lovers romance.

His eyes swept up and down my body.

I am a big fan of Maya Hughes' "Kings of Rittenhouse" series and so I figured I should give this series a go as well. I have skipped the first book, but I am known for reading books out of order, so I will go back later and make things right again :P
I love a good "enemies to lovers" story and this one definitely delivered on that front. I also love me some hot jocks, so hot quarterback Nix, really did it for me :P
this was such a cute neighbors, enemies to lovers, college romance.
i appreciate good friendships in a book and it did not disappoint here whatsoever. i mean, that nerf gun battle scene literally made my day.
tbh, i liked the friendship more than the romance but that's not a bad thing!
Nix is sweet and caring and just UGH. he’s book boyfriend material.
don’t get me wrong, i love asshole heroes but once in a while they start to be the same ya know? sometimes i wanna read about ...more
Overall, this was a ok read/nice, but for some reason I just couldn't truly get into - I think I would have loved this book several years ago.
Acquired via KU.
He was all my mistakes wrapped up into one bright, shiny package.
I'm a sucker for a good enemies to lovers romance and this one checked every box for me. I was dying for Nix's book the second he appeared as a secondary character in The Perfect First. The charming quarterback with the cocky smile was sure to hit the spot for me, and I was not wrong. What I didn't expect was for him to be as multi-layered as he was. Nix's entire life has revolved around his father's demands and football. As the sSTARS ...more
I don’t know about you, but an enemies to lovers romance is the best!!! The fiery tension, heart pulsing attraction, and let’s not forget the top notch bickering that some would even consider foreplay, there’s no way you can ever deny a story like this. Why would you want to?
Elle has had it with the superficial “Jock" and she has no time or energy to entertain their needs or wants. Her only focus right now is graduating and giving back with her humanitarian work. When she has a run in with t ...more
Maya did it again!
I totally loved this book!
It is sweet, funny and sexy.
"The Second We Met" is a college sports romance with enemies to lovers trope.
I really loved Elle and Nix's a little crazy but the adorable relationship.
Elle is a little different female character I had a chance to meet in books. She is a hard worker but also a girl who spends her free to volunteering than she's going to parties, like the othe ...more
I knew that I was gonna love this couple since I read ‘The Perfect First’ but I didn’t know I was gonna love it this much.
This my second book by this author and I’m gonna have to read all her books because I love her characters and writing.
(view spoiler)[ I know a lot of people didn’t like Elle or found her annoying but I understand her. She has trust issues and was cheated on by her two last boyfriends, so why woul ...more
Actual Rating: 4.25 stars
New Adult | College Romance | Enemies-to-Lovers
The Second We Met is the first book I have read from the wonderful Maya Hughes and I feel like I have been missing out! Don't get me wrong, her books have been on my radar and I have been WANTING to read her books, I just haven't had the chance until now. This book has everything I wanted in an enemies-to-lovers romance. The banter (or should I say bickering) was on point f/>/> ...more
The Second We Met is the next story set in the fictional world of Fulton University. This is Phoenix and Elle.
This is a story that embraces the saying "A thin line between love and hate".
Elle is struggling to finish college, she is over her head with school, work and volunteering. She has been burned by people she has trusted and loved before and that has ma ...more

The Second We Met is an enemies-to-lovers story filled with some crazy volatile tension that steams up the pages. Elle hated Nix the very first moment she met him in all his glorious nakedness. He's the type of guy she's been hurt by too many times, the one with the cocky smirk seems to have it easy in life, so she wanted nothing to do with him. But after two yclass="gr-hostedUserImg">The ...more
Maya, Maya how you always manage to steal my heart with your boys I don't know but I am totally here for it!
Welcome back to Fulton U everyone! Nix and Elle take us on another epic year, one brimming with animosity, sexual tension, good deeds, awesome friends and a fun journey towards love. I thoroughly enjoyed this book - it was fun, it was sexy, it was angsty and I love it when a book has all three.
Elle was a bad*** go getter. She was feisty, spo ...more
Is there anything I love more than an enemies to lovers? No, probably not. Something about that thin line between love and hate, the overwhelming feelings, and snappy dialogue reels me in every time. The Second We Met by Maya Hughes is everything I love about enemies-to-lovers (and everything
I want from them) wrapped up in one book with a shiny HEA.
Nix and Elle were the best. Seriously. Nix is on the cusp on being drafted t ...more
An enjoyable college sports romance. It’s sort of enemies to lovers, but I don’t feel like they are enemies for very long. And I think it’s more like displaced attraction toward one another. I loved that Elle was working hard to be giving even though the reasons why weren’t 100% pure, and I loved that Nix kind of easily fell into Elle. Like they both had attraction, didn’t want it, but also couldn’t help it. Clearly that’s nothing new i ...more
This was amazing since the beginning, if you like the second we met, you're probably gonna love this one, Nix and Elle exceeded my expectations, I'm so happy about how everything turned out here.
Some of my favorite things about TSWM:
- I love female characters who aren't afraid to speak their minds, and that's basically Elle, so I was so excited when I met her, she's so fierce, passionate ...more
I was apprehensive going into this sequel because I'd heard mixed things from my friends - some loved it, some were disappointed - and I, unfortunately, related to the latter. Even if I wasn't the biggest fan of this book, I think this is Maya Hughes' strongest written release so far. I feel harsh giving it a low rating since I love this author, but I don't like enemies to lovers and I wasn't into any of the characters or couples. The Fulton U series is unique in the sense of its male c ...more
The Second We Met is one of my favorite types of romance—enemies-to-lovers! There’s nothing I adore more than two people with insanely hot chemistry, try and fight the feelings they have for each other through smart jabs and sexy tension.
I knew for a fact that Elle would be my spirit sister. Plus, her hair rocks! She’s immediately on edge otter meeting
Mr. Russo—and for good reason! Not only is he hot af but he’s also cocky and obviously thinks too highly of himself. Is their any reason why Ell ...more
This story literally captivated me from the very first page. I remember reading The Perfect First, the first book in this series, and I felt the same way. I was immediately drawn into the story. The author draws us in with humor and just the right amount of angst to really set the bar for the rest of the story.
Hughes knows how to write characters that have incredible chemist ...more
But right now I need to gush about Nix. He was the perfect new adult college sports hero. Even when he was being a cocky arsehole at the beginning I knew I was going to love him. And he ju ...more

i just hope this book does not suck, i have SOME expectations

Filled with heated animosity, stomach-aching humour and intense sexual tension, The Second We Met is sure to entice readers into this near-flawless college environment of strong knitted friendships and slow burn romances. Maya Hughes delivered an authentic narrative featuring characters contending pressures, following ambitions and overcoming insecurities as they fall in love and discover what they want in life.
He was all my mistakes wrapped up into one bright, shiny package.
Drowned in exhaustion and inundalife. ...more
I adored this neighbours to instant enemies to lovers story. Both Nix and Elle were good, layered characters and I liked that apart from romance, the focus was also on their individual arcs as well as their relationships outside of them as a couple.
It was obvious that the final conflict would somehow boil down to Elle's trust issues but I'm glad in the end, she realized how much her projecting her past relations ...more
