Playing for Keeps: A Neighbor From Hell Novel by R.L. Mathewson

Playing For Keeps (A Neighbor From Hell Series)R.L. Mathewson is the master of writing hilarious conversations between characters. I don’t know how many times I laughed out loud throughout the whole book. All the characters are so vibrant and real, I could see myself hanging out with them on any given night. The storyline itself is filled with situations that anyone can imagine themselves going through. Who hasn’t been embarrassed by a friend or irritated with their family at one time or another?  There are some minor editing errors but nothing too bothersome and Mathewson’s conversations between characters are fast-paced as in real life, which makes for exciting yet slightly confusing dialogue at times.

While this is not the type of book I would normally pick up, I loved Mathewson’s  paranormal romance Tall, Dark, and Lonely so much I wanted to see if her other books would be as good. Playing for Keeps did not disappoint! I would highly suggest this book for anyone who likes a good book full of witty banter and believable fun characters. The romance is just sweet enough and the emotional struggles that come from falling for one’s best friend makes this book a keeper. I can’t wait to see what she does next with this series!


From R.L. Mathewson’s website:

Done with being the world's biggest pushover, Haley decides that things are going to change starting with the aggravating neighbor who has too much charm and not enough restraint. What she didn't expect was to be sucked into his world, but Haley has a game plan and she won't let herself forget just what the bad boy next door is capable of.

The last thing Jason expected was for his little shy neighbor to go Rambo on him over some ruined flowers. After he decides to take her under his wing he can't help but that notice that she fits very nicely in his life. Now the only left is to convince her that this is anything but a game.
