Now for this book. It seemed like the author just threw everything out the window in writing this one. Besides bringing the Bradford men back and making them annoying x 100. I absolutely hated Connor. There was no way I could like him after in a flashback he and his friends would spit in Rory's food and drink. I mean really? That is just plain disgusting. Even as an adult he hadn't grown up and still played cruel jokes on her. It made me feel like he never really loved her.
Rory. Hot cocoa. Could you beat a dead horse any more?? I swear every page had a mention of hot cocoa. It was just so annoying. It was like it was crack to her. Maybe the author thought it would be cute and quirky but it was just annoying.
I did skip through a lot of the book because I didn't like the flashback scenes. They were pretty ridiculous. Like most of the plot. The family being banned from restaurants, Rory and Connor being banned from being in the same building, how many times they ended up in jail, how Trevor and Jason ate all the food in Connor and Rory's house in just one night, the stupid part where Jason ate potpourri and was okay with it. I rolled my eyes so much in this book. I enjoyed Trevor and Jason in their own books but please stop bringing them back and making them 5x more annoying each time. There is only so much "bastard" and fiending for food I can handle. I found it weird the author went from the shy and nerdy girls in the first two books and then in this one Rory looks like a "Playboy model" who runs her own construction business and that guys just used her. That is a huge eye roll.
If you're considering reading the Neighbor from Hell series, I would say skip this one and stick with the first two. Those ones are really great. This one is great if you enjoy reading about hot cocoa every page.
Know the author has terrible guys in this series-A Neighbor from Hell-but, this one was just too much. I can't tell you how many times I threw up my hands in anger and frustration while trying to finish this book. Not sure how this author considers this a "romance."
The hero is an enormous ass!
The story begins with them as children and goes through the years. Now you know how in life if a boy likes a girl he may be mean to her in the beginning. Well he wasn’t just mean as they grew up he was down right cruel. I was seriously disgusted and angered by his antics. She got him back each time but he always started it and she just wanted to be left alone but he couldn’t stop himself and it was a daily crapfest. He wouldn’t leave her alone at all.
Then as adults he belittled her abilities and without getting into details his plan was to basically put her out of business.
The reason they fell in love started with blackmail and I think for her to have someone be nice to her was a reprieve. Just freaking annoying., because being kind to her years ago would have made a huge difference in their lives. I prefer to read stories in order but you can pass on this one.
I had a hard time concentrating and getting into the story. The whole picking up on the girl you like when you were a kid was cute. When you grew up that juvenile thing should faded away and be more a man and choose another way to express your feeling. I could reluctantly accept it until they reached highschool but after that it plain immature. He kept doing it even they grew up and had a job.
Another reason that I didn't enjoy this book is I personally hate a prank. It done nothing but miserable. Especially when a guy like a girl and choose that way to get her intention, I hated it. And In this book it was beyond what I could accept. The whole picking on each other made me prejudice against the book. I couldn't let the whole unreal thing slide like I let the Bradford's food obsession slide. I mostly skimmed toward the end.
I don't know if it was wrong that I was happy when Rory got injured because I knew that was when Conner was going to treat her better. Even then If I were Rory, I would loath him beyond repair. He ruined her life since she was a kid. So I couldn't enjoy this book and didn't connect to them as I did with characters from two previous books.
The author said so many restaurants in the town banned them to present at the same time, but the owner of Strawberry Manor decided to hire them to renovate the place together? How could he think they could work together when they even couldn't be able to present at a restaurant to eat, let alone working. And a guy who was supposed to be in love with her and wanted to marry her when he was 18 years old tried to steal her brothers to work with him by make them thought that he dated his sister? That would make her out of business. How could a person do that to someone they love? This whole book was just a mess.
Her father was angry for Rory to ran of and got married with out him sending her away. That was when he told her that he expected her to call him whenever she needed help. He knew about her accident from a mailman and now this marriage. Well, I'd like to say that if you want your children to call you when they need you, you need to act like you care. From what I read, he was a cold dad who didn't express his feeling enough for his daughter to know that he cared. I don't understand why her father didn't confront Corner and make him stop picking on Rory. Yes, Rory was a strong independent girl but that didn't mean her dad can sit back and let a guy make his daughter miserable. And her brothers as well. I can't see any reason why they didn't confront him either.
I'm so disappointed since I liked the two previous books so much. I've already bought the 4th book, but I'm going to wait for a while before I read it.
