Strange Neighbors Review

Author: Ashlyn Chase
Release Date: June 10, 2010
Publisher: Sourcebooks

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...

Merry is a very sheltered girl that has spent the time since her mother's death caring for her father and younger brother. Finally Merry has decided that it is time that she moves out of her father's house, and get a place of her own in Boston, where she works as a nurse. Merry finds a building that she loves, which also has very eccentric neighbors.

Jason Falco is a major league baseball player, that keeps every woman he knows at a distance. That is until he meets his new tenant Merry. Immediately he is attracted to Merry, but he can't use his fame to win her over...she doesn't know who the hell he is. Jason knows that he has to get to know Merry better... that he has to make her his... no matter what it takes.
Merry and Jason are soon dating and weird things are happening in their building. There is a ghost that lives in 3A, two psychics that live across the hall from 3A, a Werewolf that lives upstairs, a vampire in the basement and oh yeah Jason, Merry's new boyfriend is a shapeshifter. 

I am so glad that I stumbled upon Strange Neighbors. I was looking for something along the lines of what I normally read, but wanted something a little more out of the box than normal. I wouldn't recommend this book to someone that is under the age of 18... it does have some steamy sex scenes. I loved Strange Neighbors from the moment I began it, until the moment that I finished it. It is unpredictable, and never had a lack of something interesting going on, that kept me interested in the book. I felt that Strange Neighbors was very well written, and the characters developed well. Nothing about the book felt rushed, which I liked. I hate it when you are in the middle of something important then BAM there is the ending. Strange Neighbors progressed very well and ended just were it should have. And after reading this book... who wouldn't want a piece of Jason Falco! He is a sexy piece of meat! If you are looking for a paranormal romance that is going to keep you interested, and have no lack of steamy romance Strange Neighbors is for you. I know I will be looking out for the sequel which is due our Spring of 2011.
