Overview

There’s nothing worse than living next door to your childhood nemesis, except maybe being forced to share your dream project with him, being blackmailed into going along with something that was just wrong on so many levels, and having your hot cocoa stolen by the person that drove you to drink it in the first place.
As long as she has plenty of hot cocoa, a pair of pliers on hand and is able to resist Connor O’Neil’s bad boy charm then Rory James should be able to make it through this project with her sanity intact. If not…..
She’d probably face a few more nights in jail, have a few more restraining orders slapped against her and lose her heart to the man that ruined her life.

Another book, another neighbor from hell, another hit! I love her writing style and this book is no exception. I love the characters and the way she makes you feel comfortable with them right away...I laughed out loud through most of this book and will no doubt read it again!

Loved it! Super sexy and funny just like the entire neighbor series! I love me some Bradford boys!

Out of the 3 NFH books, this was my least favorite only because it was too drawn out with over the top childish antics. Seriously, at least 1/3 of the narrative could have been eliminated and not affected the story! Loved the romance and human interest components regarding Andrew but couldn't wait to get to the end.

Great premise..but the fighting became annoying and I didn't care for characters. The story wasn't convincing as a love story, but rather a lusty one. There were some funny moments though and I enjoyed seeing Trevor and Jason again.

I've read all three books from this series and I have to say that this obe is my favorite. The characters are just more well developed and the story is entertaining and keeps your interest till the end. Also Connor has to be my favorite out of all leading men of this searies. He's just so sweet and romantic. Read it!

This is the third in the NFH series. This story started 20 years ago and brought you current with two childhood enemies. It's a funny story that chronicles their highly amusing antics as well as their struggle to fight their steamy chemistry. It's a good read? Can't wait for the next one!

Thought that this would be better based on the reviews. Just okay. Not well written. Enough with the hot chocolate and fighting.

Another Neighbor From Hell to fall in love with. Connor is definitely the sweetest and most romantic of the series. This was a great book only make better by the hilarious cameos of Jason and Trevor! I loved the fact that this time the girl was the Bradford instead of the guy.

My goodness! This is probably my favorite of the three. I actually teared up at the end (before the epilogue). I mean, I really enjoy reading about the Bradford's, but I liked that it was the female that was the funny one here. Rory was really cool and I'm glad she wasn't just some goofy girl that an amazingly attractive man fell for. There just seemed to be more of a story in this one.

If I read hot cocoa one more time I was going to lose it. Too repetitous.

I've read the preceding stories in this series, but this one wasn't as good as the others. Went in to too much unnecessary detail, so I found myself skipping pages because things were repeated numerous times. Not as good as the previous two in this series...just ok.

I absolutly love these books! R.L Mathewson is a wonderful writer. Her stories are always entertaining and I love the whole Bradford family. I will start one of her books and become glued to it. It has the perfect balance of love and laughter.

I've read all the NFH series and this one wasn't my favorite. There wasn't much of a connection between the characters and they fought way too much.

I read several books a week, but rarely do I feel strongly enough to review them. That's not case with these books. I really enjoy this author's writing. The characters start to feel real because you laugh with them, hurt with them, feel with them. Her use of humor is a breath of fresh air in this style of writing. I will say, though, that the author likes her themes. You see several ideas repeated through a number of her books. It doesn't detract from the story for me...but I did notice it. Overall, I highly recommend this book and her others. I check constantly to see if she has a new book out!

I have read all of the "Neighbors from Hell" series and they've all been great! However, I've to say, this is my favorite. I was laughing out loud so much, my stomach and cheeks were hurting! You love, rough patches and definitely humor. Keep them coming R.L. Mathewson!
