I just finished book 4, Truce and couldn't wait to read Elizabeth and Robert's "Honeymoon from Hell". True to the title, it was something pretty much straight out of hell! Though it started out fun (even with those first 30 pages of copy-paste from Truce), soon it turned into something... something.......... I don't even have exact words for that "honeymoon". :o
Aww those two.
Remember folks, over-the-top is the keyword here. Once again, so over the top it wasn't even funny. I just felt bad. :( I adore Elizabeth and Robert but this was horrible! They just wanted to enjoy a week free of kids and all the other responsibilities.................. *sigh* All I can say is that marrying a Bradford doesn't seem appealing to me at this point. :/

PS: the author needs to appoint a better editor for her books. The repetition and very convoluted sentences are also killing the fun of reading. At least for me.
My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...
Sooo, Neighbor from Hell series by R.L. Mathewson used to be one of my favorite series. However, as the years passed, the books became rather difficult to get through, the main family The Bradford’s showcasing the same type of obnoxious males in each. I mean each one of them talked, acted and ate (yes ate, if you’ve read the series you know what I mean) the same way. After a while, honestly, it just got old.
I loved book 1, Playing for Keeps, to bits. It’s where we’re introduced to the male population of the Bradford clan and their legendary eating habits. Oh don’t worry, they have great metabolism so no matter how much they eat, they always keep fit. LOL It also may have something to do with their profession, as they’re construction workers by trade (or so I remember). Playing for Keeps featured Hailey and Jason and was just so adorable and funny that I couldn’t help myself sighing over it. Book 2, Perfection, features Jason’s cousin Trevor and Zoey. I wasn’t as sold in it because Trevor hit a few really sensitive nerve in me with his words and activities. I’d probably show him my middle finger and move on, but he did come around in time and saved the book for me. Zoey was great, though she was too caught up in Trevor’s goodlooks, even when he was being an a$$ of colossal proportions. Book 3, Checkmate, was the story of.................... *cricket* It’s been a while and I didn’t care for the main characters much so I largely have forgotten about this one. The last one I read was book 5, The Game Plan. It was SO BAD that I had an epiphany; that I need to stay away from this series. At least for a while because this book was wayyyy over the top, so ridiculous and repetitive that it wasn’t even funny. It was absolutely irritating, and when it wasn’t, it was boring me to sleep. Needless to say, I didn’t bother doing a review. I think it featured one of Jason’s cousins, again, another Bradford clone who offered me basically nothing.
