The Game Plan by R.L. Mathewson

This series is like crack! Ok, so I’ve never done crack. Maybe Coca-Cola or chocolate would be a better addictive product to reference. This series is definitely addictive though, to the point where you crave it when you don’t have it. Hell, I remember being excited whenever I failed to sleep-in on the weekends, because it meant I could indulge in this particular addiction.

What’s it About?

Spend the next 40 years in prison or break her lease early? Normally she’d be able to say that this one was a no-brainer, but things have definitely changed since she was forced to move in across the hall from Danny Bradford. A lot of things… She wanted to get through one day, just ONE day without Danny Bradford doing something to test the limits to her control, but with that damn smile of his and his habit of leaving her contemplating manslaughter, she didn’t see that happening anytime soon. He loved his family, but some days… It was too much, but that was okay, because his small neighbor living across the hallway provided him with endless hours of entertainment. Not on purpose of course, but did it really matter as long she made him smile?

First Impressions

Just like any other Bradford, Danny has a strong appetite for two things: food and sex. This family’s propensity for food is so outrageous, yet unbelievably hilarious I can’t help but laugh out loud sometimes when I read it. In addition to a questionable food addiction, it seems the Bradford men also share a talent for fluency in dirty talk, and are quite adept at other sexual activities. They also have some interesting theories when it comes to love and marriage. For example, Bradford men simply don’t propose to the women they love. Oh no. You’re supposed to kidnap your intended bride. Although the men throughout these novels share some similar traits in regards to their inability to fill up on food, and their amazing sexual prowess, each book is different, and this novel in particular had some unique aspects.


An Added Hilarity

I always laughed at the Bradford food obsession and general shenanigans between neighbors in the previous novels, but The Game Plan offered another point of hilarity in Jodi’s unfortunate response to medication. This girl spent about 1/2 of the book high on meds with terrible reactions including becoming extra touchy feely, and the inability to keep her horny thoughts to herself. Or her clothes on for that matter. Jodi’s strange reactions to any kind of pain or allergy medication was pretty ridiculous, and quite unrealistic, but that didn’t stop me from giggling to myself. On second thought, this book probably should have been called The Game Plans (plural), as so many of Danny’s plans for seduction were ruined because of Jodi’s strange reactions to medication.

A Different Relationship

Although Danny and Jodi agreed to date a lot quicker than the couples in the previous novels, there is a much bigger and longer build-up to the point when they actually have sex. For some unexplicable reason, Danny and Jodi decide to take things slow, and don’t have sex until very late in the game. Now, this doesn’t mean the novel is dull in any way, shape, or form. Let’s just say they get extremely creative with some jelly donuts, showering in general, and there is a decent amount of rubbing involved.


The other books in this series also offered a glimpse of the other family members in the Bradford clan, but the family presence played a much bigger role in this one. The strained realtionship between Danny and his father is of particular importance to the plot, and everything comes to a head in a family vacation to Disneyworld. Not necessarily the happiest place on earth when the Bradfords are on the scene. It might be the sexiest place though when you think of the total number of abs these Bradford men have. Mmmm, nice.

Series: Neighbor From Hell series, book 5. This is one of my favorite romance series out there. They’re funny, and they’re HOT!

Should you read it? Uh, yeah! Technically, every book in this series is a stand-alone, but because you meet a large number of characters from the previous books on the family vacation to Florida, I would recommend you read them all in order.

Smut Level: Jelly donuts people. Jelly freakin’ donuts. Also, just look at the cover!
