Review: Playing for Keeps

Playing for Keeps
Playing for Keeps by R.L. Mathewson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Timid and shy, Hayley Blaine is not one to court confrontation, but when her gorgeous yet aggravating neighbor crosses one line too many, she finally puts her foot down. Jason Bradford is shocked when quiet and unassuming Hayley lashes out at him for trampling her flower beds. As Hayley and Jason slowly get past their animosity and begin a hesitant friendship, they must decide whether to risk everything and take the next step or lose the love of a lifetime.

A hilariously funny romance that had me laughing out loud on numerous occasions.

The first two/thirds of the book detailing Hayley and Jason’s enemies to friends to lovers relationship are wonderful. There is, however, a section towards the end in which both of them need a slap upside the head for their stubbornness. Thankfully their idiocy is short lived and the ending is very satisfying.

The secondary characters are somewhat clichéd, but suit the overall light and fluffy tone of the story.

All in all, a wonderful read with a sweet heroine and a sexy hero. I look forward to reading more from this author soon.
