Playing for Keeps 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. (Summary by

My Thoughts:
The first book in the Neighbor from Hell series, I can't think of any complaints or anything that I wish was done differently. When I first started reading the book I thought Haley was going to be a push over for most of the book and we would have to wait to see her grow into that, but within the first chapter Haley goes from meek to in your face and doesn't even back down when in Jason's face.

Jason initially sees Haley as a project and a good friend. Even though it is obvious to his friends and to the reader, Jason doesn't even see the way he starts to develop deeper feelings for Haley until all of a sudden he can't get her off of his mind and the idea of another man touching her sends him into a jealous rage!

I never knew a character that ate so much or was so obsessed with food like Jason. I too am amazed that he manages to stay fit in the book, but that food obsession led to some of the most hilarious parts of the book.

I liked how this was not an instant connection kind of love, but one they had to work through and almost didn't get see happen. I was actually scared for a minute towards the end thinking that things would never work out!!!!

Great hilarious read that must be completed in one sitting or you will regret it! :)

Rating: 4.5 Stars!
