Perfection (A Neighbor From Hell)
Some of you are still waiting on my book “reveal” after I teased ya’all on Facebook over the weekend.
Maryse’s Book Blog: “4.5 stars of grrrrr, and non stop chuckles, and sighs, and more grrrrrrr, – witty, fun, silly, and still deep enough to feel emotional on a personal level. These people are real, to me. LOVED it, and I’m onto the next. Review to come shortly, and the details for those in the mood for light-hearted and yet still a somewhat deep read.:”
*WOOPS!!* My bad!! I took my time, didn’t I? That wasn’t very nice. Hehe. ‘Cause you see… I’ve been called away out of town again, so I’m gonna make this one short and sweet (until I can get to the actual review). So consider this my *squee* pre-review, and it so deserves two reviews!!
This one was a total “accidental find” (I just happened upon it) but when I read the premise and some of the reviews, I was reminded of when I found “Sweet Dreams” by Kristen Ashley and had that same *feeling*. And I think I was right!!
Amazingly entertaining, unputdownable, wholeheartedly satisfying read. I read it in one sitting and can’t wait to move onto book #1 in the series (yep! I did it again. By accident I started book #2 – this one – and when I realized it, I shrugged and said oh well, this one’s too good to stop now). And guess what?! I don’t think I ruined anything for book #1 (Playing For Keeps (A Neighbor From Hell Series). I am DYING to get to know Jason (who is the annoyingly hot hero in the first book, and also this guy’s cousin).
So this is the gist. “Normal” girl (Zoe) moves next door to extremely annoying (but hot) neighbor (Trevor). He’s easy to figure out. He’s obsessed with hot women, and food. I’d almost say food over women. Anyway… They become friends. Well. Sort of. You’ll see.
I LOVED this book!! Amazingly sweet, and of course, an infuriating hero. I adored Every. Single. Character. The whole bunch of ‘em. A big family feel, with hilarious family quirks, very realistic conversations, moments, and introspective thoughts. I believed these people were real, and I couldn’t stop laughing. But it’s not just funny. The romantic tension is off the charts, and there are some deep and very sad moments too. Just a perfectly well rounded book, and one I’d easily give 4.5 stars too.
When I get back to my own “normal” I’ll be reading #1 next.
