Playing for Keeps (A Neighbor from Hell, #1)

by R.L. Mathewson


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 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.


Review as on Goodreads by ♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ 
Well... after all the hype & I expected it to be really good, it was kind of disappointing. BUT for $0.99 it was worth the read.
I have read some intense books recently & this book didn't even come close. It was good, but for a contemporary romance it just came in a little short for me.
I think the plain covers make the book. If it had a cheesy cover, I think it would be rated differently. Maybe this was the wrong thing to read right after Kristen Ashley... I dunno.
The premis of 2 neighbors living next door to each other & working together was good. I haven't read one like that before. It ended sweet as well.
I have a serious problem with food boundries though too, so that might have been a factor. who knows. I really wanted to like it based on the reviews & recommendations, it just didn't work. sorry.

Sighhh, it happens quite often to me too and I feel quite guilty when my friend fervently recommends a book and I wasn't very impressed by it :/
