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
