Editorial 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.

Could have been a really good book but....

The sex scenes were a little much for me. Didn't enjoy that at all but the funny parts were definitely good.

Loved it

This book will make you laugh. The Bradfords are hilarious. The only thing I didn't like was there was glitches throughout the reading where it would skip words. But overall very good.

“Hey! I thought you said you were gay!”

This book blew me away! It was so much more than I was expecting (not sure why). I loved everything. It was sweet, funny, witty, sexy, loving, heartfelt, sad and every other emotion in between. It was one of those book I could not get enough of. Couldn't focus on anything else ... not housework, kids, work, breakfast, lunch or dinner. It was good for my soul

Sweet contemporary romance

Sweat story w believable characters who fall in love and have to figure out how to try to make it work. Not rocket science but good summer fare. Embarrassingly I finished in one day! 😳

Charming and great narrator.

The banter between Jason and "Grasshopper" is fun, impulsive yet intelligent. She is someone you root for, he is someone you can't help but root for, even when he is messing up. Some hot chemistry mixed in with the laughs and banter. Worth the credit.
