Brief synopsis: Quiet, timid Haley does not like confrontation and will go out of her way to avoid it. At just 24, she purchases her first home however the joy of home-owning is short-lived when Jason Bradford moves in next door – he’s rude, messy, loud but worst of all, good looking! When a disturbed bees nest forces then to take shelter in Haley’s house, an unexpected friendship soon begins to develop.
What I thought: This book is fantastic! It’s funny, very sexy and even a bit silly at times. It’s quite a short book so it makes for a nice easy read.
Haley and Jason are brilliant characters; great chemistry between them and such a good fit into one another’s lives. I really liked the two perceptions of Jason that are portrayed at the beginning of the story – how Haley saw his behaviour and then his version of what had happened.
I’m now really looking forward to reading Neighbor from Hell #2 – Perfection.
“‘B-but I’m offering you sex! Lots and lots of sex!’ Haley hissed urgently as they stepped into a lush foyer.
‘You would have had more luck offering me meatloaf, my little grasshopper,’ her informed her, catching her arm as she tried to make another escape.”
