The last thing that he wanted was to fall in love with his brother’s best friend.
From New York Time’s bestselling author R.L. Mathewson comes the next installment in the disturbingly funny romantic comedy series, Neighbor from Hell.
It was time to move on.
Granted, Cayley would have preferred to wait until after Christmas, but with her best friend somehow managing to get her fired and evicted in the same day, she had no choice but to move into the apartment across from the man that really didn’t seem happy to see her.
That was fine.
More than fine because if she could handle her best friend making her life a living hell and an ex-fiancé that was determined to get her back, then she could handle the man that was willing to do whatever it took to let the past destroy them both.
He couldn’t believe this was happening again.
For years, Bryce had been going out of his way to avoid Cayley, hoping that she would finally move on, but now that she was back, he realized that he no longer had a choice.
He was going to have to break her heart.
At least that was the plan until the little brat turned the tables on him, making him wonder how much longer he was going to be able to lie to himself even as one thing became painfully clear…
This was going to be the worst Christmas ever.
The girl next door is going to prove him wrong!
Bryce keeps telling himself that the Bradford Curse is BS. He isn’t fated to fall crazy in love with his next door neighbor. His next door neighbor that he is sure has been stalking him or obsessed with him since she was a child. His younger brother, Sean’s best friend, Cayley. She is completely head over heels for him.
Or so he has been telling himself for years as he broodily glares at her. Watches out for her. And low key obsesses over her while telling himself and everyone else that she is his stalker.
He may be a bit self deluded.
But don’t worry, his self delusion helps lay the groundwork for some of the hilarity the NFH series is known for. Men with an insatiable appetite for food. Gorgeous. Confident. And with a tendency to push someone’s buttons. Be it their siblings, their wives, their fathers, their mothers, their bosses, their friends… the Bradfords and their cousins, the James, are very good at pushing buttons.
He bets his sister he has no interest in Cayley while his siblings know the truth is the exact opposite but he won’t admit it if they keep trying to push it on him and so he’s going to prove them wrong by spending a lot of time with her.
And Cayley has been bet by her best friend, Sean, Bryce’s younger brother, that she can’t do things alone. And yet while trying to prove she can do things alone, she finds herself falling for the man who has been glaring at her for years. The man who supposedly hates her. A man who may need someone to scale his walls and break them down.
I love this story. I love Cayley opening Bryce’s eyes and heart. I love the James family and their machinations. I love the ridiculousness of their squabbles and bets and competitiveness. And I so can’t wait to see what Sean and Jess are up to!!
This book made me laugh hysterically. Was spicy. Has lots of heart. And I absolutely adore the Bradfords and their bookiverse!!
I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
