Checkmate: A Neighbor from Hell Novel by R.L. Mathewson (@Rlmathewson)

Excerpt from Amazon:

There’s nothing worse than living next door to your childhood nemesis, except maybe being forced to share your dream project with him, being blackmailed into going along with something that was just wrong on so many levels, and having your hot cocoa stolen by the person that drove you to drink it in the first place.
As long as she has plenty of hot cocoa, a pair of pliers on hand and is able to resist Connor O’Neil’s bad boy charm then Rory James should be able to make it through this project with her sanity intact. If not…..
She’d probably face a few more nights in jail, have a few more restraining orders slapped against her and lose her heart to the man that ruined her life.

 Rory and Connor have been archenemies since preschool.  There is not a prank that they have not committed against the other.  They have been arrested, banned and joked all over town.  How sad is it that the two of them can’t be in the same restaurant at the same time?  When both of their construction companies are asked to take on a time-sensitive joint project, they know that the time has come to change their ways.


Connor thinks he is going to just head up the entire project and Rory can be at his beck and call.  He really doesn’t understand that Rory is the head of her own projects and not the “little woman” that Connor acts like she is.  It was good to see the playful side of these two characters and I loved the tie in to the Bradfords! 


Sometimes the person that we torment the most is the one we love the best.


I purchased this book for my own pleasure.
