What the community says about Playing for Keeps (Neighbor from Hell)
- "Playing for Keeps, written by R.L. Mathewson is a romance novel about the love between Haley and Jason, two seemingly incompatible people. The book has received positive reviews, though some have complained that the story loses steam halfway through. Nonetheless, Playing for Keeps is a great read for those looking for contemporary romance novels."
- "I don't think there's anything hot or romantic about possessiveness. And I think this book is terrible and I can't imagine how there are so many people giving it great reviews. It's poorly written and the whole thing is like a book that's only good for making fun of."
- "This book is so worth the 99 cents on Amazon. It was so enjoyable that I found and could not put the book down. Haley was very likable and enjoyed book with a character who values sex but has high morals. Have to say their love scenes were pretty steamy. I was surprised that I would get so worked up over scenes that did not involve sex. Jason and his friends were adorable. I loved Jason's obsession with food, Haley's cooking reeled him in. I have now purchased more books by R.L. Mathewson and can not wait to start reading them. The only negative was the book was too short. Wanted more but the ending was good. I am glad it ended the way it did."
- "Girl meets boy, girl hates boy, girl secretly likes boy... stop me if you've read this one. I know I've read this one. This book was, for me, a basic example of a basic premise played absolutely straight with zero interesting twist or unexpected outcome whatsoever. so what was the point? I'd give this one a pass."
- "Playing for Keeps (Neighbor from Hell) is a great book about the traditional bad boy alpha male falls in love with the innocent little girl next door. I usually don't like this type of book, but I really kept the pages turning when my wife forced me to read this one. Highly recommended. "
- "A lot of reviews for this book seem to be very positive and well received. A variety of the reviews for this is very well interesting since you can guarantee that a lot of things can be brought out from just one novel and something is not repetitive. Playing for Keeps should be considered one of the best for it being playful and cleverly written as a story generally."
- "The book has a fairly standard love/hate type of story. It starts with two neighbors that don't get along, but gradually the man starts to realize how much he likes the girl. Even though I found the story to a typical story, it is well written and it certainly has moments of sexy action that will have you wanting more. I found that the story does grow on you as read along, if your a fan of this type of sexy reading material, I would recommend reading it. "

- "This book does not live up to the level that the others in the series have. With that said, its still a pretty good read. Especially for people who have read the other books in the series. The author created characters that were very likable. Even ones that might have been jerks, turn it around to become decent humans. "
- "The romance novel in question is about a pair of neighbors that get off on the wrong foot but then become romantically involved afterwards. The two leads develop a bit throughout the story in that they both become more like one another in a somewhat predictable way (the emotionally distant male lead opens up and the timid female lead becomes more confident), so the book is not anything groundbreaking, though it does have some moments of genuine humor. I suppose it would be a nice pick for those looking specifically for a book in which neighbors hook up, but otherwise, it is not incredibly different than the average romance novel."
- "Playing For Keeps is one of the most unbelievable books I have ever read, or attempted to read, at least. We are expected to accept the premise that the heroine is a timid, meek woman who never speaks up for herself. She has lived next door to a crude jerk of a neighbor, but has never said word one to him. Then one day she reacts to him destroying some of her flowers by turning a hose on him. They end up being friends, and then lovers, in a short time. The heroine is a virgin at age 29 or 30, and the scene in which their relationship is consummated is problematic at best. That's the point at which I could go no further. The hero is a boor, the heroin is a bore, and the book? Ugh. Awful."

- "Love and hate relationships are a common occurrence in everyday life, but it seems difficult to find literary works which highlight this, since it's not a romanticized notion. "Playing For Keeps" is a breath of fresh air, as is the whole "Neighbor From Hell" series, that caters to this forgotten niche. Overall, it's written very well and is compelling; I highly recommend it."
