Book Review: Strange Neighbors
Strange Neighbors (Strange Neighbors, book 1) by Ashlyn Chase.
He's looking for peace, quiet, and a little romance...
There's never a dull moment when hunky all-star pitcher and shapeshifter Jason Falco invests in an old Boston brownstone apartment building full of supernatural creatures. But when Merry MacKenzie moves into the ground floor apartment, the playboy pitcher decides he might just be done playing the field...
A girl just wants to have fun...
Sexy Jason seems like the perfect fling, but newly independent nurse Merry's not sure she's ready to trust him with her heart...especially when the tabloids start trumpeting his playboy lifestyle.
Then pandemonium breaks loose and Merry and Jason will never get it together without a little help from the vampire who lives in the basement and the werewolf from upstairs...
What happens when a bunch of hot paranormals end up living in the same apartment building? Loads of hilarity and lots, and lots of sex! Strange Neighbors is a fun romantic comedy with a few paranormal twists. Some of the characters seem a bit shallow, but not every paranormal can be a brooding philosopher. The humorous elements were a nice touch. The phone sex witches in apartment 3B had me laughing out loud. Everyone has to make a living, right? Strange Neighbors is a light, yet steamy, paranormal read perfect for taking to the beach or a lazy trip to the park.
I recommend Strange Neighbors to readers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and especially to fans of steamy romance with a touch of paranormal. Warning: explicit sex.
