Review: Perfection by R.L. Mathewson

by R.L. Mathewson
#2 A Neighbor from Hell

WARNING! Do not read this in public areas...people think you are crazy when you laugh hysterically for seemingly no reason...assholes

This has got to be the best 72p I have EVER spent and has now sparked off a teeny tiny obsession with buying every book that R.L. Mathewson has ever published.

Zoe has had the worst day of her life. Ever. Attacked by the bosses wife, unfairly fired from her soul destroying job, her car window breaking and then the final straw her arrogant neighbour from hell stealing her pick-me-up pizza. She can't take any more. But the confrontation with her neighbour the handsome, arrogant food obsessed Trevor leads in to unexpected directions as they set up a little arrangement to benefit them both.

I bought this on impulse as I love plain Jane stories, I am ashamed to say I thought it would be a quick enjoyable but ultimately forgettable read, I was wrong, I LOVED this book. It was funny and sexy and it reminded me alot of Shelly Laurenston's style, it has the same foul mouthed, sarcastic humour THAT I LOVE! Trevor also reminded me alot of an SL hero (Briec!) he was adorably arrogant, completely self centered most the time but also hot as hell. Zoe was good as well, funny and I loved seeing her come out her shell, watching her wind up Trevor was hilarious.

The romance between them as well as being funny, was also sweet and steamy, they slowly went from fuck-buddies to being in a relationship without either of them really noticing! The other characters around them were also great, the whole Bradford Clan were completely food obsessed and a little insane and I can't wait to read more about them!

This was a great book, I loved every second of it am now off to Amazon to loot the rest of R.L Mathewson's books...!

I agree that the cover can be deceiving. There were a couple of series I would be interested in.
