Marybeth still couldn’t believe that she’d survived this long with a
friend like Darrin, but somehow she’d managed to beat the odds and not give in to temptation and smother him with a pillow while he slept.
Of course some days were more difficult than others…
For twenty years he’s been biding his time, waiting for the right moment to make his move and now that it was here…
He couldn’t seem to stop screwing up.
Every NFH novel is written so that it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book with the exception of this one. When I started writing Double Dare it wasn’t meant to coincide with The Game Plan, but it does. So, if you haven’t read The Game Plan, you may want to wait until after you do so that you can fully enjoy this book.
It comes as no surprise that I adored this book. I love the Neighbour From Hell series, and I want, no that's not right, I need, my own Bradford. Pretty please can I have one? Maybe there's a Noah or Jack Bradford out there waiting for me to move next door, so he can terrorise me. Sigh. A girl can dream, right?
I loved Darrin in this book. He was just the most awesome, sweetest guy I have ever met. I love him. He was just simply adorable. His unwavering love for Mary-Beth was just awe-inspiring and so incredibly sweet. One day I hope to have a best friend like Darrin. (However, saying that, Trevor will always be my favourite Bradford. Shh.. Don't tell him that though, it'll go to his head.)
I felt so incredibly sorry for Mary-Beth in this book. Going through what she must have, knowing that she couldn't have birth her own children was simply heartbreaking. The worst part - trying to give up her soulmate, her one true love, because he can't wait to start a family and have kids, and she can't have them. I almost cried, it was so sad. And when she thought she was being sneaky with her birth control injection, Darrin's reaction when he told her he knew was hilarious. Although he might have thought it was for one thing, i.e. protection, and didn't mind using condoms so that Mary-Beth didn't have to get so upset about the injection was incredibly sweet.
This book was an awesome, kickass book to add to the Neighbour From Hell Series. I seriously cannot wait to read more about the Bradford's.
