My Swoon for this week comes from:

Playing for Keeps
(Neighbor from Hell #1)
R.L. Mathewson  

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 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.

Second - The Swoon:

She cut his words off with a kiss, surprising the hell out of him. It was a quick gentle brush of her lips over his, but it knocked him on his ass. Haley dropped her head back on the pillow staring at him while she worried her bottom lip nervously.

Jason hovered over her, panting for breath that had nothing to do with laughter. That kiss... that innocent, sweet kiss hit him harder than every makeout session he'd ever had in his life.

I picked this one up for free on Amazon after reading some great reviews on Goodreads. 
Unfortunately, it didn't turn out to be the book for me.

My rating: 3 out of 5
