REVIEW - Neighbors with Benefits (Anderson Brothers #2) by Marissa Clarke
Release Date: 30 June 2015
A satisfying category romance from Entangled’s new Lovestruck imprint…
Love thy sexy jerk of a neighbor…
CEO Michael Anderson might be something of a “control freak.” Still, he’s not quite sure why his therapist thinks dogsitting will fix anything—especially since he and the canine share a kind of mutual loathing. And to make matters worse, a house sitter moves in next door disrupting his peace—and his dates—with the worst possible music at the worst possible time... every time.
Free-spirited artist Mia Argaropolis has settled into the perfect gig—housesitting in NYC’s Upper West Side while working as an art therapist. Too bad she’s stuck living next door to a bossy control freak with a penchant for calling building security when she blasts music to drown out the noises coming through his bedroom wall.
Post-apocalyptic dinner rolls that nearly take her kitchen with them, a douchebag ex, and a Shih Tzu with the personality of Godzilla attack Mia in one day, and her unlikely neighbor comes to the rescue. Like it was her fault. And now, somehow, they find themselves engaged? Both agree, this neighborly feud just got taken to a whole new level.
My Review 3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing LLC, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
I liked this book. We have two very different people in Michael and Mia. Michael likes routine and things to be in their place, whilst Mia is flighty and spontaneous and a bit of a mess to be honest.
Mia really makes Michael look at his life and lighten up a bit, the kind of thing his therapist would want him to do, she even helps him with an unwanted at first animal he has to look after.
The two characters really connect well and the heat is turned all the way up. We get our usual angst and a few misunderstandings so that the path to true love is not all roses and not a straight line, however both characters grow and become better people because of each other and the people around them that care for them.
Would love at some point to read book three in the series.
