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 get 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 notice that she fits very nicely in his life. Now the only thing left is to convince her that this is anything but a game.

This read was just as funny and dramatic as it was sexy. It may have started out as neighbors from hell, but the insomnia was a totally cute turn. Being depended on each other in that way... I can relate, sort of, and I know it sounds totally ridiculous to some people, but I liked it. Plus, this was equally smut and plot, although it did come across some cliches.

Haley was awefully cute, although she also had bite. She could be a tease, she cooks, she likes football -- what more could the average American guy want? x) She was totally lovable because she wasn't at all superficial like the rest of her grown-up-with-the-spoon-in-their-mouths family, she was all like her hard-working grandma -- and that lady had all the wisdom and bite one could aquire in a single lifetime! I liked her tons, and I'm glad Haley had someone like this in her life growing up, who she could always count on.

Jason was, well, a stud. But the good kind. Family was important to him, he knew what he wanted and he didn't just take, but worked for it. And he has patience, lots of it. It took very long for him to snap, and when it happened, it was even overdue in my register. Sometimes, it's really important to know when to stop chasing, because dreams always coming true is just not a reality. However, hanging on to a shred of hope nonetheless isn't the wrong thing, either. Thus, I conclude, he made all the right calls and had the traits I personally love.
