“I always look forward to the release of a new Neighbour from Hell book, by the end of the book I am inevitably both hungry, horny and grinning. Double Dare was no different” ~ Under the Covers

Darrin decided to marry Marybeth when he was 10 and she was 7, it is now over 15 years later and he is still working on it. He knows she loved him, how could she not? And he has never loved anyone but her, but Marybeth is hiding something, something that is stopping her from giving into him abundant charm and making an honest man out of him. Well, he won’t let her keep him as his dirty little secret anymore…

I always look forward to the release of a new Neighbour from Hell book, by the end of the book I am inevitably both hungry, horny and grinning. Double Dare was no different, I enjoyed reading about the antics of another crazy and crazy hot Bradford male. However, that was also the problem, Double Dare really was no different from any of the other books in the series. I still enjoyed reading it, but I could feel boredom encroaching the more I read as the jokes and general story arc has started to become all too familiar.

But, I still enjoyed Double Dare, it made me laugh and I can’t help but be charmed by all of the food obsessed Bradford men, both the ones from previous books, and, hopefully, the ones that still have a book to come. The romance between Marybeth and Darrin was fantastic, I loved how their friendship as well as their sexual chemistry shone through.

A great read if you are after something light and funny, I look forward to reading the next book in the series, especially after the little teaser letter Mathewson stuck at the end of the book!

About R.L. Mathewson

Before I tried my hand at writing I was a receptionist, cafeteria worker at the college I attended, museum worker, bellhop, and about a dozen other different things that are pretty embarrassing so we're just going to skip over those things and pretend that they never happened ;D

I can't just sit around with nothing to do while I try to be deathly silent so that I don't wake up one of my children and send them into a blood curdling screaming fit. So, to fill the time I started to read again. When I was in school I was a bookworm, but got away from it as I grew older. I was drawn back into my love of reading by Julia Quinn's What Happens In London. It was a wonderful, witty book and I fell instantly in love with romance novels.

Some of the romance novels that I read were great and I couldn't get enough, I started to play with the idea of writing a book. Several months later I finally gave in and tried. For four months straight I worked day and night until finally I finished my first book. Then of course I re-read what I wrote, cringed and deleted the entire book and started over again.

After reading an article about self-publishing I knew that was the way I wanted to go. I like the freedom to write what I want, when I want and publish a story that I hope others will enjoy reading. It gives me a great deal of freedom and allows me to retain full control over my work, which of course allows me to set the prices of my books and make them affordable for everyone 🙂 Which of course is the reasoning behind the $0.99 price tag for my books.

That's how I became a writer and why I self-publish. Well, that and I'm pretty laid back and don't want to be hassled with contractual obligations. That would just cut into my writing time, time with my kids, reading time and my hot cocoa addiction. Yes, I am thoroughly addicted to hot cocoa and if you're interested in experiencing the perfect cup of cocoa you can find the recipe for my cocoa somewhere on my author blog.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

Thanks for the review, I do love this series and was hoping this book was better than the previous release which was good but didn’t branch out much. I’ll still buy read and I’m sure laughs will be abundant.
