She’s the daughter of an Earl and expected to marry well, say and do the right things with a smile on her face when inside she’s dying for a chance to escape. Thanks to an inheritance her godmother left her years ago, her chance will come with her next birthday. Her hopes of escape abruptly end when Robert, her childhood nemesis that she hasn’t seen in over fourteen years, comes back into her life and does everything he can to drive her out of her mind even as he steals her heart.
He hated her.
At least, he tried to hate her, but it was so damn difficult to hate someone that he couldn’t live without. He tried to ignore her, tried to focus on anything but her, but nothing worked. Somehow she made her way into his heart and started to make him want things that he never though possible, made him smile and laugh even while she drove him out of his mind and started a legacy by turning him into…..
I was so excited that Mattewson was going a release another book of Neighbor From Hell. This series is so cute and funny that you will not stop laughing from page one. Its going back from the beginning on the Bradford. The book started off in the present with Jason, our hero from a previous installment, making a homemade necklace for his wife on their fifth anniversary per the tradition of Robert Bradford. Robert Bradford started the tradition when he marry his one and only love, Elizabeth. However, they dislike each other since childhood. Thrust under the same roof after a tragic occurrence Elizabeth and Robert's childhood battles resume. Both of them refuse to admit that they have feelings for each other, for doing so would be loosing the battle. I loved watching the back and forth pranks and banter between Elizabeth and Robert. The feelings that they try to hide from the other was truly endearing to read and I fell in love with them. Their feelings that started in the orangery are growing stronger and seem to be making Robert more and more possessive of Elizabeth. They had amazing chemistry and their love/hate relationship was the highlight of the book.
