Playing For Keeps Review

Hey guys,
since Cassandra's going to be taking a bit of a break and reviewing mainly anime and manga, I am going to be a bit more present around here from now on, although I will be mainly reviewing books. :P I hope to have a new review up every weekend, and would love to hear what some of your favorite books are in the comments!
Without further ado, here is my review of R.L. Mathewson's first Neighbor from Hell novel 'Playing For Keeps." hope you enjoy!

I started reading Playing for Keeps because it was a free read for my kindle, and I was bored. Man, I am so glad I picked it out! 
   Firstly, the characters - like the storyline - are hilarious and authentic. Haley and Jason's character and romantic development throughout the story is perfectly executed, and really a joy to read. All the characters are relatable, and what is great about many of them is that they could be anyone. R.L. Mathewson makes you believe that it’s possible to meet your own perfect match, just so long as you give them a chance.
  Her writing style is also unique, hilariously funny and engrossing. The dialogue is witty, and Jason’s obsession with food is at once hilarious and troubling. As someone who enjoys food, I loved reading a book that incorporated such a simple and everyday need into the broader story, as a comedic tool and an expression of character.
  The build-up of sexual tension is also fantastic, as neither character wants to admit it exists. While this adds to the humour, it also gives another layer to the story, and really has you involved in the romance. By the midway point I can pretty much guarantee that you will be rooting for Haley and Jason to just stop pussyfooting around and get together already!
  If I were to sum this book up in a sentence, I’d say that it is the perfect blend of romance and humour. Even if funny isn't really your thing, or you’re not too keen on romance, I'd still recommend this books as it is truly fabulous.
 Altogether I’d give it about 4 ½ stars out of 5.

Blogging Hiatus

With Summer 2013 in full swing already thought this was a good time to dive myself into completely doing some anime watching and then maybe a few anime reviews including reviews on my latest manga reading. If interested check out, The Huge Anime Fan

Book reviewing and more specifically book blogging is something need a break from. Just not so passionate about it these days. Just want to enjoy anime and manga and discover new content. Jesse as you know blogs too, here, and she may or may not continue to blog but I leave that in her hands.

Until November 2013, then!

Reviews: Are not given either positively/negatively based on compensation. Reviews are entirely out of speculative opinion. Put out for readers to ultimately make their decision on a book, movie, and or product. They are honest reviews based on opinion. And ultimately I would never falsify information or exaggerate, given I do not see a benefit in doing so.

Affiliate: The blog is monetized through Amazon's Affiliate Associates Program, The Book Depository's Affiliate Program, YesStyle's Affiliate Program, GoHastings Affiliate Program, and a few other programs best seen through the blog's ads. Every little purchase you make, makes, a huge difference to me as a blogger. Buying through the blog's links gives me a small percentage of commissions. I try exceptionally hard to make the links/ads as unintrusive as possible when viewed on the blog. If they are intrusive, I, do so apologize but still hope you can enjoy the actual written reviews.
