Reviews Double Dare (Neighbor from Hell, #6)

  • Jennifer Kyle
    2.5 ~ 2.75 Stars "Do you love me enough to stop pushing me away?" This installment was the least funny of the series and got boring by the fifty percent and draggy by seventy-five percent and onward. The writing was choppy and/or like the author left out their relationship (show me some basis for their love anything) and gifted a book on one obstacle. The heroine even though I was supposed to be sympathetic to her (I personally had this condition...

    I cannot believe that I am rating one of the Neighbor from Hell books just 2 stars, but Double Dare was almost painful to read. I hated the constant bickering and the back-and-forth together/not together amount of page time this story was given. Really, this book is a hot mess and I'm happy to say I finished it, and somewhat surprised I was able to do so.

    The sixth book in the Neighbor from Hell series features Darrin Bradford and his best friend MaryBeth. They’ve been best friends since they were children and for some reason Mary Beth is struggling against becoming more than friends. As usual, romance happens. The usual Bradford humor : Silliness abounds in this installment, and there's no shortage of food humor and a strange competition between Mary Beth and Darren where they're constantly dar...

    ⭐⭐2 STARS⭐⭐I'm going to keep this short, I didn't really enjoy this one. I love the Neighbor From Hell series, however "Double Dare" and the previous book were not as satisfying and entertaining as the first 4 books in the series.I thought maybe my tastes has evolved and that could be explaining why I didn't like The Game Plan that much either... But see, I re-read "Playing for Keeps" which is book 1— not so long ago and LOVED it still....

    I am very unhappy right now..I have read all the NFH and loved all of them, the characters very wonderful and the stories captivating. This one though..not so much. I had serious problem with Marybeth, she was an inch from my TSTL-list and it was not an enjoyable experience reading about her stupid decisions and she just seemed self-centered and quite mean actually:S The book as a whole did not have the same flow as the previous ones, maybe the a...

    3 Disappointed Stars!I love this series!! This book I didn't love! I didn't like Marybeth!! I felt like this book was different from the others. Maybe it was just me. I don't know:( The ending was rushed! However...I loved the sneak peak of the next book! I can not wait for more!
  • L*Take Me To My HEA*
    It was just ok for me. But this was better than the last one.
  • Hollie
    I've really loved this series so far (with the exception of the cocoa obsessed heroine in checkmate) but something seemed to be missing here. I love a story of childhood best friends falling in love but this didn't even feel like that. there was no passion. sex yes, but I never felt a connection to either the hero or heroine. I'd say 75% of this book was dedicated to the heroine avoiding the hero. for over 6 years she held back with him rather th...

    It was really hard for me to rate this. What I really love most in the series is the humor in it. Banter of H/h, and of course the Bradford's food obsession. I don't know if it just me, but I didn't find it amusing the prank/dare that's been going on in the whole story. My issue also is the heroine. I don't like Marybeth's decisions either. I find it lacking in development of Darrin and Marybeth relationship. The friends with benefit set up was w...

    How I wanted to love this book. Hey even liking it would have been a step in the right direction. I couldn't finish the book. I refuse to torture myself by reading a book that I find disappointing. Darrin and Marybeth have known one another since they have been 7 which I loved then there is a scene when they were 10 and another one when they are 15. Fast forward to the present and well they are sort of in a relationship. More than friends with be...
  • Kim Bailey
    A little too over-the-top in practically every way ... but I still enjoyed all the crazy.Bradford men have this sneaky way of getting me to route for them. Darrin certainly fell into that category. He's sexy, charming, kind of hilarious & did I mention sexy? Hot damn. Marybeth, on the other hand ... I just wasn't a huge fan. Her angsty mellodrama was just too much for me. Overall, not a bad read, but not my favorite of the series either.
  • Shannon Gorilla McGee Winston
    He sighed heavily. "I can't let you treat me like a whore anymore," he announced with typical Bradford flourish, making her roll her eyes."Treat you like a whore? Really?" she asked drily with a sad shake of her head, because really, only a Bradford would turn himself into a martyr over sex.3.5 STARS FOR DOUBLE DARE. This is going to be part review and part commentary on the NFH series.Readers should probably know going in that events in Double D...
  • Cyndi
    Not my favorite in the series. A lot was recapping from the last book, just told from another perspective. Must have been a heck of a trip to Florida. Even Mickey couldn't save this trip. Also, how do these guys get anything done? They seem to spend all their time eating or fighting over food.
  • LBell
    Did I just read a R.L. Mathewson book???Let me just start off by adding that I have read The Game Plan. I really had high hopes for this book. I've been waiting on it for forever (or so it feels like.) And I was sorely disappointed. I read it in one afternoon, literally started at 4 o'clock, and finished it by 7.I almost feel like I'm missing half the story.The story starts out with the main characters being 7 years old and meeting for the first ...
  • Emily
    I feel horrible for rating this book so low. I love R.L. So much. But this book, just wasn't for me. It felt more like a novella than an actual book. It was so short and had an abrupt ending. The amount of sex was ridiculous, I skimmed them. It honestly became too much. It was so repetitive!! It was the same back and forth the entire time. Fight. Sex. Double Dare. Sex. Family time. Sex. Wash and repeat. Marybeth and Darrin start off being in a fr...

    finished this audible during a 2.5 hour walk and loved it. Review will follow soon
  • Eclissi
    Oh no. Why 2015?Oh well. Willing to wait.
  • Chappy
    Darrin and Marybeth have been best friends since they were kids living next door to each other. She grew up with the Bradford clans (and works with them as well) so she's well versed in all their shenanigans. The whole double-dare concept got old pretty fast and felt a little immature to me.Marybeth's reason for keeping Darrin at arm's length was kind of lame. If she truly believed this, she should of just let him go.The story felt disjointed and...
  • Kate Hastings
    I just love these sexy as sin , hilariously delusional, alphatastic Bradford men & Darrin Bradford was no different.I love that we started their story right back when he & Marybeth first met - which had me laughing within the first page - and time jumped in milestone increments through their friendship to get us to present day. Not only was it entertaining, but it clearly set the foundation for who these two were, what their relationship was like...
  • Katie(babs)
    Very wacky and over the top actions and dialogue Mathewson fans will most likely enjoy, but very convoluted writing with scenes that seem to be thrown together and don't make any real sense. It feels like some scenes that needed to be here went missing. I had a hard time concentrating and understanding what was going on. The chemistry and connection between Darrin and Marybeth isn't really explained in an adequate way. Also the time line jumps ar...
  • Suzanne (Under the Covers Book blog)
    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 ...
  • Keri
    I hated how Marybeth basically jerked Darren around for 6 years. I get some of the issues she was going through, but honesty is always the best policy and letting Darren think one way for 6 years, but know what the truth was because you don't have the guts to say something...just left a bad taste in my mouth. It was a solid two for most of the book, but the ending bumped it up for me. I didn't understand the antipathy that Kenzie and Lucifer had ...
  • Jessica Florence
    This book was ok for me.You have to read The Game Plan before you read this one. I felt the jumping around soooo much was a little distracting. You would get like 6 paragraphs then it would switch to the other persons POV like days later sometimes... It was a little off. Um The hero and Heroine made me laugh of course. I liked seeing other characters from the other books. I will continue with the series but I think it's just hard to beat the firs...
  • Saly
    I hate giving this rating but I think I may be over this series, it is too over the top and for the love of GOD I can't take the double speak, why can't the characters just talk in a normal language people understand? I read this book after a long break from reading and couldn't follow what was happening half the time, characters seemed to stop mid-conversation and what not. It may work for you but to me it was too melodramatic.
  • Dina
    2 1/2 stars (rounded down to 2 stars, because I couldn't stand the way Marybeth kept playing with Darrin's heart)

    AHHHH-MAAAZZIIIIIING!!!!!OMG...R.L. MATHEWSON is moving up! She's making me cry more now!! I'm used to her making me laugh.. but to cry like this... Happy tears! Absolutely happy tears!!! I love that the story of this book is much deeper. I love that a sensitive topic could still find a bright side. I love how the characters handled themselves even though sometimes they were frustrating. I just... I love this book so much!!Read it!!! YOU WON'T RE...
