Title: Perfection
Series: Neighbor from Hell #2
Author: R.L. Mathewson

Zoe is used to taking care of herself and has long ago accepted that if anything bad was going to happen, it was going to happen to her. So when she loses her job over something most bosses would probably be happy with and her life starts going down hill from there she doesn't expect it to get any better. She certainly didn't expect any help from the loud jerk next door, but then again she has nothing to lose so puts her trust in him and hopes for the best. What she didn't expect was the once in a lifetime opportunity that he offers her through an arrangement where they both benefit and no one is supposed to get hurt, but she should have known better because her luck has never been that good.

Like most Bradfords, Trevor has a soft spot for food, but that's about all. He leads a pretty straightforward life and likes to keep things simple and that includes his relationships. He wants the perfect woman and knows exactly what she'll be like. So when he discovers much to his horror that he's thinking about his frumpy little neighbor he decides the best way to get his head straight is by working her out of his system. He'll keep her around, but only until he finds perfection.


Just as hilarious as the first book in the series. Lol. I was laughing so hard my three year old yelled at me for interrupting his cartoons. :-)

Zoe O'Shea ha never relied on anyone. Growing up in over a hundred different foster homes taught her the only person she can rely on is herself. She also learned that bad things always happen to her. This way of thinking is why when she loses her job for catching a mistake that would normally earn her a promotion but instead gets her fired, she doesn't expect anything good to happen. In fact, she fully expects to be living out of her car within the next month. This is distressing because she loves her apartment. It was the nicest place she ever lived and except for her landlord's jerk of a nephew who happens to be her neighbor, she believes herself lucky to have found such a great place. Her asshole neighbor, Trevor Bradford, is loud, inconsiderate, and downright rude, but she holds her tongue for fear of being evicted if she complains. What she doesn't realize is that Trevor is actually her landlord. Trevor, like most Bradfords, has a love affair with food. He also readily admits he is a jerk. He doesn't like complications, and strives to avoid them in every aspect of his life, even relationships. He has a list of features that he believes his perfect woman will have, and any other woman is basically just a means to an end. After insulting his frumpy little tenant, to assuage his guilt, he helps her get a job with his uncle's construction company, and hires her to run errands and clean and shop for him. He believes this is a perfect for everyone involved. He gets his annoying day to day needs met, and Zoe gets extra cash. Zoe has always noticed Trevor is one good looking man, but she knows he will never look at her as a woman because she is convinced she is fat. She vows to lose weight after overhearing some of the construction crew speaking badly about her. Trevor was just using Zoe's skills for his benefit, but after spending a bit of time with her, he quickly becomes aware that he is actually attracted to her sexually. He can't believe it and ignores it, but when he learns that Zoe has gone five long years without sex and is determined to find someone random, he comes up with a plan. He wants Zoe, she wants no strings sex, perfect solution is for them to use each other. He will work her out of his system and she will get safe sex where she remains safe, and then it'll be easy to scrape her off when he finds his perfection. Surprisingly, Zoe agrees. As their passion mounts and things become more hot instead of less, Trevor will realize that he has real feelings for the sweet, tough, slightly rounded Zoe. Zoe will struggle with her growing feelings for Trevor when she is convinced he can never want more with her and love her. When Zoe's wild diet puts her health at risk and a surprising medical condition is revealed, Trevor will have to work double time to convince Zoe that he truly loves her and needs her for the rest of his life.

This was so funny. Jason and Haley made their appearances, so it was perfect. Trevor was an ass. I almost didn't like him, but his Bradford charm got under my skin. Lol. Zoe was a strong heroine except for her body hangups. I'd even go so far as to say that she had a mild form of body dysmorphic disorder. I wished the author resolved that issue a little better because it is a serious problem, but it didn't take away from the story at all. I loved the banter and Zoe's inability to tell a lie. Can't wait for the next one! <3

Title: No Time for Goodbye
Author: Marion Myles
A psychic with a shady past. A detective with a missing sister. Together, sparks fly. 

Psychic Mia Reeves is still trying to let go of the past, but when a gruesome vision keep haunting her thoughts, she can't ignore the truth. But getting the sexy, smoldering detective to believe her story is going to be harder than she imagined. 

Detective Roman Mancini will do anything to find his younger sister. Ten years is a long time -- and he and his family want answers. When Mia arrives at the police station with his sister's bracelet, Roman's suspicions kick in. As doubtful as he is, the red-haired beauty piques his interest, while giving him another lead. After all, he's hell-bent on uncovering the truth. 

As Roman and Mia team up together, one thing is certain: their chemistry is undeniable. Putting their desire on hold may be more difficult than they expected. When Roman's biggest fears are finally realized, a new danger erupts. This enemy is one Mia never saw coming. Can the detective save the psychic before there's "no time for goodbye?" 

If you love gripping, face-paced romantic suspense, No Time for Goodbye is your perfect next read. 

No Time for Goodbye begins when Mia has a visions about a murder, and she ends up going to the police about it. The cops don't believe her, and think she may be a part of it, and when one of the cops is the victim's brother he will stop at nothing to find out what Mia is hiding. Some how these two get put together to try and solve this mystery, but feelings arise as they spend more time together, and it looks like the killer is warning Mia away. 

This book was really interesting. I liked the psychic aspect of it, and I really enjoyed the mystery as well. The problem I had was some of the "secrets" the heroine was hiding was a bit fristrating, and the way the hero acted about it was frustrating as well. Not only that I guess who the hero was right in the beginning part of the book, and o was right. So, that kind of made it not as good. But, the overall story was interesting to read, and I liked it.

Title: Murder Notes
Series: Lilah Love #1
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.

Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

Murder Notes begins with the heroine trying to solve a case. She's a FBI profiler, and now she has a case that is taking her across the country to her home town. She must do what she can to uncover the secrets that are surrounding her loved ones, and herself. 

This book started off a bit interesting, but also a little slow. There seems to be a lot of inner monologue that is overwhelming, and a bit confusing at times. I was hoping we would learn more during the story, but we really don't learn much of anything. Just more and more questions that aren't answered, and then a cliffhanger ending. So, overall this one just wasn't for me. I had issues connecting to the heroine, and just understanding the basis of the story.
