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.
Oooh, I think this is one of the best enemies to lovers story that I've ever read. Where the two previous books featured Bradfords and their insane obsession with food, this one featured a Bradford cousin and her insane obsession with getting one over on her mortal enemy, Connor.
These two hate one another...completely and totally. They've spent their lives making the other person's life pure hell. Throughout the story are little snippets of how/why Connor and Rory have gotten jailed, banned, and driven out of places was so funny. I can't imagine how long the author spent thinking up all those crazy scenarios. The book is worth reading for just the length and breadth of hearing about the antics between these two. This story takes the story of the little four year old boy pulling the cute girls pigtails to an extreme.
But they both work construction and in this book they are put to work together on the biggest project either one of them has ever had to work. It will make their careers, but they have to work together and cooperate to make it come together. Most of the town would bet on this being an impossible task. In fact, most of the town will not even let them attend events at the same time because of the destruction they leave in their wake when that happens. I loved the set-up.
And then the story began and I fell completely and totally in love with Connor. Because he is that sweet little four year old. He's always just liked Rory...a lot. He's also done all these incredible sweet things over the years to protect and shield Rory. He wants to take care of her. And Rory has never had that. She grew up in a family of five men...her four brothers and their father. They had NO IDEA what to do with her, so out of self-preservation, she became prickly and hard. Connor is the ONLY person ever in her life who sees her as a girl...and it drives her nuts.
I LOVED this book...so so much! It was just fabulous. So much emotion and the narrator once again NAILED the story and characters to perfection. I highly recommend it!
I love this series. As soon as I finished this one, I immediately got online and bought the next three. If they are near as good as the previous three, I'm going to get a lot of housework done this week (I listen to audiobooks while I do my household chores, so if I'm listening to a good one, I just keep working.)
This is the first Neighbor from Hell novel I've read, and I am officially a FAN! I LOVED Rory & Conner! They were sooo precious! I'm looking forward to reading more about the Bradfords! They sound really interesting!
So for the last 25 years, Conner and Rory have played pranks on each other, each one determined to get back at the other by embarassing one another or making their life miserable. Even though they were both obviously used to their game and willing participates, I still felt anxious about it. I just didn't want to see one of them lose or be broken. Still, their antics were pretty hilarious!
I LOVED seeing them get closer! First, Conner taking care of her when she got hurt, then the deal (that made me very nervous at first because I just couldn't understand how he thought that wouldn't hurt her), and then the courtship! I LOVED their relationship!!
OMG - the intimate scenes ... Wow! Very, very steamy! ... Just WOW!
Another thing that I LOVED about this book is seeing how they live their life - always fighting for themselves, getting banned from places, getting arrested and then needing bailed out - it was just soooo funny! Maybe this outlook is a bad influence on me...
Conner loves Rory!!
