Worst Neighbor Ever by Rachel John

Blurb (as on Amazon)

Which one is the worst neighbor ever? It might be a toss-up.

Melissa… Connor Harwood is a snoop, a bad neighbor, and a tree and grass killer. Oh, and probably a criminal. I can’t forget that part. The fact that I find him to be the most handsome guy I’ve ever laid eyes on is completely irrelevant. I’ll just have to keep a close watch while also ignoring his very existence. I can do both, right?

Connor… Melissa Cooke is way more than I can handle right now and most likely stalker material. I have to remember that. I will not be taken in by the way she looks in her elephant-print pajama pants while holding her little excitable dog. I will not…go…over…there.

My Rating: 4.5/5

Melissa Cooke has just moved into a new house and hasn’t interacted much with the neighbors yet. But when her mother decides to make them all a part of Melissa’s surprise birthday bash, it doesn’t lead to pleasantries, especially between Melissa and her next-door neighbor, Connor Harwood. He’s handsome, he’s a dentist, and that’s where his good qualities end. The chemistry between them is palpable, despite him being all wrong, and her being engaged. Do they end up together, and if so, how?

What I liked about the book:

  • It was perfect for a fill-in between other books. I laughed out loud a lot and thought the character of Granny was fabulous. Connor and Melissa were pretty great characters too but Granny steals the show. This was a very enjoyable, quick read that ticked off all the pointers for a good rom-com for me.
  • I loved Melissa and Granny’s equation and adventures. These were the most fun to read. But they take on a whole new endearing meaning for readers later on in the book.
  • I liked how Melissa tries to get Connor into the good books of Granny and her best friends, to kind of get their blessing and approval. But later decides against it.
  • The banters between Melissa and Connor to outwit and ignore each other are my favorite, my top pick being the scene where Connor tries to put Melissa off by convincing her that he is a drug dealer.

What I did not like about the book:

  • What I did not like about the book almost also is one of the things I liked about it: the lack of steamy romantic scenes. Because, how is it a good romance without this?
