the game plan

SYNOPSIS

Spend the next 40 years in prison or break her lease early? 

Normally she’d be able to say that this one was a no-brainer, but things have definitely changed since she was forced to move in across the hall from Danny Bradford. 

A lot of things…… 

She wanted to get through one day, just ONE day without Danny Bradford doing something to test the limits to her control, but with that damn smile of his and his habit of leaving her contemplating manslaughter, she didn’t see that happening anytime soon. 

He loved his family, but some days……. 

It was too much, but that was okay, because his small neighbor living across the hallway provided him with endless hours of entertainment. Not on purpose of course, but did it really matter as long she made him smile?

“A Bradford male might realize early on that he’d found the woman of his dreams, but until he was at the point that he was willing to risk a kidnapping charge, he wasn’t ready for marriage.”

Who doesn’t love The Bradford’s? R.L. Mathewson never fails to make me laugh and swoon in equal measure. Sure the formula is pretty much the same as the Neighbors from Hell series continues; but in amongst the dark and angsty reads these books always provide that comical, sweet and sexy relief which is a breath of fresh air.

“Oh my God!” she yelled. “What the hell is wrong with you?”

Well I can answer that; he’s a Bradford my dear hahahaha. This Author injects so much humour, writes such gorgeous leading men and sweet heroines. To be honest if you’ve read the previous books in this series you pretty much know what to expect and the food drama you’re in for. You’re also pretty sure to laugh and fall in love. I have to say though that I did have some issues with this one. There was quite a bit of repetitiveness of not only certain phrases and situations but also reasoning’s for Jodi’s behaviour. The first half rocked, then it took a bit of a turn which became a tad frustrating at times. However, overall I thoroughly enjoyed The Game Plan; it was just what I needed.

“…there are more constructive ways to deal with boredom than terrifying others for my own enjoyment.”

So, the Bradford’s are back and I can’t deny how excited I was by the fact that we got a lot of Trevor in this one. He’ll always be my fave followed closely by Jason. But…this story is about Danny, the seemingly quiet one of the bunch; the more serious Bradford.

Back in the day Danny was a perfect youngster until the day he messed up; a day that acted as a catalyst for emotional and physical pain consequently impacting his present day. He’s almost treated with kid gloves and subconsciously stays away from any kind of emotional relationships. Well, that was never going to last really as soon as picking on Tinkerbelle next door becomes the highlight of his day, other than the usual Bradford food addiction of course. I really fell for Danny; he was quite different to the previous Bradford’s. He had quite a sad story to tell and I loved this more emotional side of NFH. It was so bloody sad when it all came out and how the relationship between his Dad and him had suffered.

“You are the best part of my day, Tink. You make me feel whole and happy and when I’m not with you, I’m thinking about you.”

Now as for Jodi, well she had me in absolute stitches on the whole. I have to say her reaction to any type of medicine had me crying with laughter; those scenes totally floored me. She’s such a sweet and ‘quiet’ type of girl; a proper ‘girl next door’ (pun intended!) you just can’t help but root for and take her to your heart. She’s not had much excitement in her life or appreciated for the beautiful person she is. So it’s about bloody time someone showed her.

‘Because no one else had wanted her.’

Despite how much I really liked her character; my frustrations with this story was based round her. At times she was over written and quite repetitive. I would also have loved more situational experience with Jodi and Danny outside the flat/hotel bedroom. More catching up with the Bradford’s; having chaotic meals with them, bans and fights. Especially it would have been fun as they went to my favourite place in the world. Now that I would have liked more of!

So, despite my issues, it was like coming home……and overall I enjoyed it and I will keep reading and going back for more!
