Review – Playing for Keeps (A Neighbor from Hell #1) by R.L. Mathewson

I absolutely loved this book!! Both of these characters are beyond great! ~ Guilty Pleasures

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 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 notice that she fits very nicely in his life. Now the only left is to convince her that this is anything but a game.


Playing For Keeps is one of those books that grabs hold of you at the beginning and doesn’t let go till you are finished! It has it all laughter, heat, and watery eyes. A truly wonderful introduction to a new to me author.

Haley is literally the world’s biggest pushover. Really she is just very shy, and lawd if you came from her family you would hide a bit too!! For five years her next door neighbor / co-worker has made her life a living hell, and kept her from selling her house to get away from him. But all that changes the day she has enough!! LOL .. She looks out the window to find him ripping up her precious tulips, and she goes on the warpath complete with the water hose as a weapon.

Jason is quite intrigued by his little shy neighbor, and the last thing he expected was to have her attack him over the flowers. He had a really good reason for ripping them up. They hid a hornet’s nest, which was beyond upset by their fight over the flowers. So they are forced to flee to her house to escape the mad demons. During their forced time together he starts to see that there is more to her than meets the eye, and decides to make her his Grasshopper (even though she refuses to call him her Master Miyagi.. hehehe). She intrigues him more then he wants to admit to himself.

I absolutely loved this book!! Both of these characters are beyond great! I love the way Haley blossoms through her friendship with Jason, and Jason is truly funny and loveable with an appetite for bake goods that rivals Santa. LOL!! This one will have you truly rolling in laughter. I can’t wait to read the rest of the Neighbor From Hell series! I hope y’all love this book as much as I did!! 🙂
