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.
Playing for Keeps is about a 29 year-old woman, Haley; who is trying to make it on her own instead of living on her families money. She put herself through school, has a respectful job as a school teacher and purchased her modest home all by herself. For the past five years, Haley lived next door to a neighbor from hell, Jason. Jason is everything you don't want in a neighbor. He is rude, disrespectful, party animal that has endless amounts of women and parties in his house. Plus he doesn't keep up with his home that is an eye sore. Poor Haley not only has to live next to him but also work with him since Jason is also a teacher at the same school.
After a big fight between the two neighbors a friendship develops, then of course a relationship follows. Jason is soon in his first "real" relationship. He is always doubting himself that he is good enough for Haley and everyone around them seem to agree but the two want nothing else then to be together. But with all their troubles can they survive their family, their history, their future?
REVIEW: This book is so worth the 99 cents on Amazon. What a pleasant surprised I found and could not put the book down. I thought Haley was adorable and enjoyed reading a book with a character who values sex and has high morals. With that said, their love scenes were pretty steamy. I didn't think I could get so worked up over scenes that did not involve sex. Jason and his friends were adorable. I loved Jason's obsessed with food, Haley's cooking captured his heart :)
I thought the author captured each moment perfectly and was very well written. I have already purchased other books by R.L. Mathewson and can not wait to start reading them.
The only negative thing was the book was too short. I am greedy, I wanted more but the ending was so perfect. I am glad it ended the way it did.
