It all started five years ago when Jason moved in and Haley saw him taking a pee on the oak tree in his front yard. Yep, rough and crude, and this behavior scared Haley off, and she avoided him whenever possible. Haley's soft, sweet, sexy and maybe a little nerdy in her glasses, and she's also in need of a backbone adjustment. That's where Jason comes in. One day Haley has had it with being timid and taking crap from most everyone in her life, and Jason just pushes the wrong button that day. This leads to Haley confronting Jason about his behavior, and the rest is history.
From that moment on, Jason's hooked and decides to be her protector. He likes her sweetness, her looks and smarts, and he sees in her a chance to help make her stronger and more likely to stand up for herself. It's really cute and funny how he calls her 'little grasshopper.' He thinks he's Mr. Miyagi, the sensei who will teach his protege the art of toughness. Jason didn't know it yet, but he'd met his match. He doesn't realize that, in protecting Haley from loser guys, he's also saving her to have all to himself.
Brash, protective and possessive, and for all his faults, Jason's charming in his own way, and funny as well. There's so much chemistry between Haley and Jason. I even had to laugh out loud a few times at them. It's one of those stories where you feel as if you spent time with two good friends who have the hots for each other but don't know it yet, and you can't wait to see it when it finally happens. A cute, fun, sexy read, just really a good time.

Jason and Haley are neighbors and are both teaching at the same private school, but they almost never speak to one another.
Jason is the neighbor from hell. He throws loud parties, his yard is a mess, and even at work he keeps "borrowing" stuff without asking her.
Haley is timid and shy, so she never confronts him, but when she catches him ruining her beloved flowerbed, she snaps. She gets into a physical fight with him, and they accidentally disturb a nest of bees. They escape to her home and end up being stuck there for a few hours, in which they get to know each other a little better. Haley discovers Jason is a lot of fun, and not as bad as she thought. Jason discovers his stunning neighbor is a great buddy, and decides to help her come out of her shell.
This books is one of the most entertaining books I read. Jason is charming and immature, but in an adorable way. Haley's transformation to an assertive woman who even picks up fights in a bar is a lot of fun. The book is funny, sexy and romantic.
It is also a huge pet peeve of mine when conflicts exist in books solely because the characters won't talk to each other. Seriously, the entire conflict could have been solved in a 5 minute conversation or if everyone was honest from the get go. All in all, the premise of the story was cute but the execution was lacking. This was not a winner for me.
