A lesson in respect and communication
You will definitely laugh and you will definitely cry and if you are not genuinely disgusted by his self absorbed behaviour and the low and scandalous way he disrespects her boundaries.. But before I give anything away, I really enjoyed this book. It is not the first NFH novel I read, having stated with Checkmate then came back to start from the beginning.
Mathewson created lovable and genuinely believable characters and situations and with just the right amount of humour added to this mix, it is a very enjoyable first in the series. I am looking forward to the next NFH novel.

I thought Playing for Keeps would be a fun read, but soon found the characters too immature to be engrossing. When 2 adults who teach high school can live next door and work in the same school & not be able to have 1 mature conversation about their differences in 5 years, I started to get bored. Then instantly they are best friends and sleeping together (without sex) and each is too insecure to believe he/she is lovable. Felt like a bad teen romance...

What a fun sexy contemporary romance!
This story was sweet, romantic, and fun! The characters were lovable & I enjoyed the playful interaction between them. The story line was simple, and although it wasn't action-packed, I did not want to put this book down. Jason Bradford loves women, just doesn't love them enough to start a relationship with him. After five years of getting the cold shoulder from his neighbor, he is delightfully surprised to find out she is a baseball fan, cooks sinfully delicious goodies, and a total blast to hang with. As a unique friendship develops, both Jason and Haley find themselves dating each other without actually dating one another, only time will tell if it will develop into something more. Jason and Haley are adorable, sweet and kept me laughing out loud throughout the entire book. Jason is absolutely delicious and his obsession for baked goods was freaken hilarious. Haley is your typical shy bookworm but she's got a lot of sass and fire underneath it all and it was really great to see her come out her own shell. The off the charts chemistry between these two was simply irresistible and steamy as hell. The characters are both wacky, and their behavior is off the charts unbelievable. This is a real feel good, pick me up type of book, that'll have you laughing in no time. Loved it!
