Playing for Keeps | [R. L. Mathewson]

Playing for Keeps

Done with being the world's biggest pushover, Haley decides that things are going to change starting with the aggravating neighbor who has too much charm and not enough restraint. What she didn't expect was to be sucked into his world, but Haley has a game plan and she won't let herself forget just what the bad boy next door is capable of. The last thing Jason expected was for his little shy neighbor to go Rambo on him over some ruined flowers.

Audible Editor Reviews

R. L. Mathewson's ear for witty dialogue and tension-filled scenes is on full display in her audiobook Playing for Keeps. Haley, young and easily pushed over, has finally decided she's had enough and it's high time she takes charge of her life. When she spies her annoying neighbor ruining one of her flowerbeds, she finds her first opportunity to take charge. The only problem is, Jason, the troublesome neighbor, has a look and physique that could melt a popsicle in January. Performed by Eileen Stevens with a sultry energy, Playing for Keeps is a perfect for remedy for those cold, late nights.

Publisher's Summary

Done with being the world's biggest pushover, Haley decides that things are going to change starting with the aggravating neighbor who has too much charm and not enough restraint. What she didn't expect was to be sucked into his world, but Haley has a game plan and she won't let herself forget just what the bad boy next door is capable of.

The last thing Jason expected was for his little shy neighbor to go Rambo on him over some ruined flowers. After he decides to take her under his wing he can't help but that notice that she fits very nicely in his life. Now the only left is to convince her that this is anything but a game.

    "Be prepared to laugh out loud at this one!"
    Where does Playing for Keeps rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one ranks up on the top!


    What other book might you compare Playing for Keeps to and why?

    No comparison! It's been a long time since I have enjoyed a book like this one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Many scenes were my favorite. All the way through this book was my favorite scene.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, but, there were times when I got really worried they would break up for real. That would be bad. These two are made for each other.


    Any additional comments?

    Have to give the narrator a big thumbs up on this one. Great job.

    For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.

    "Oh Jason!"

    This is one of the best most funniest books I have ever read. Besides the 2nd and 3rd book in this series. If you ever need a book to put you in a good mood I highly recommend this series. It will have you laughing till you cry. The romance is awesome. Love scenes smoking hot. I will definitely be reading this series again and again!
    I love that the hero's name is Jason. I always have been a sucker for a guy name Jason lol.

    "Great series but poor audiobook"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have read everything by this author and she has never disappointed me! I would definitely recommend the ebook versions but the not the audiobook. I purchased all the audibooks available by this author, since I already had the kindle versions I received a discount for the audiobooks (I love listening to them while I am cleaning.) That being said, the editing of performance is so bad, there is a lot of skipping and repeating that is very distracting. This is a recurring problem in each of the audibooks by R.L. Mathewson. If you are able I would definitely recommend reading the books and skipping the audio!

    "Gave up halfway through"

    Storyline was too improbable (doormat girl transforms overnight into one of the guys, bad boy Jason into protective lover). If we are to excuse a bad story in the name of a good romance, it failed to work for me. The narration is good - its all that is.
