Checkmate by R.L. Mathewson (A Neighbor from Hell #3)


Read: 11 January 2013 (originally November 2012)
Why: Loved A Neighbour From Hell #1 & #2

Rating: 5 stars

Brief synopsis: Rory and Connor have a strange relationship based on make each other’s life hell and have done since day care. When their building firms are forced to work together on a project, the two of them find they have to spend a lot more time together.

What I thought: This book has to be my favourite of the 3 books in the series so far. It’s just as silly and sexy as the others but I think it’s the history between the characters which makes this my favourite. I loved Rory, Connor (I’m so glad she changed it from Shia) and their little antics from the start. The author obviously has a great imagination (or a worrying past!).

RL Mathewson is currently taking some time out from writing but Neighbor From Hell #4 is on her to-do list. I’ll certainly be looking out for that one.

Favourite quote:
“Sure there were about a dozen other little girls he could have tormented with paint, paste and pushed down into the mud, but why bother when there was always little Rory James around? She was just asking for it with those two little pigtails, tomboy clothes and a little know-it-all attitude. As the school bully, it had been his job to make her life a living hell and he had taken his job quite seriously all those years ago. Hell, he still did.”
