(arc) Review: Strange Neighbors by Ashlyn Chase (Loved it!)

Book Details:

Product ISBN: 9781402236617

Price: $6.99

Publication Date: June 2010
What I thought:
'Strange Neighbors' was totally fun, witty, and hot! I really enjoyed this one!
Ashlyn Chase created a cast of characters from every walk of "life" if you want to call it that LOL! It was a light hearted and fun paranormal romance that totally sucked me in and kept me wanting more. The main character, Merry, was great. I loved that she was a woman about my age, thrown into this freaky world, and managed to find love in strange places. (ha! get it? Strange places....yeah, I'm a dork!)
Anyway, I also liked the fact that since it was so light-hearted, the two main characters weren't getting it on every other page. Now don't get me wrong...I like it in some books! This one had just the right amount of romance and intimacy; the "getting it on scenes" (as I shall call them) that were in the book were surely hot!
I loved the storyline; I don't want to give to much away on it because it's a classic one with a paranormal twist. I thought the author did an excellent job with it!
To summarize my thoughts: this book was totally enjoyable. I liked the author's writing and hope to see her write more books based on these characters!
About The Book:
(from publisher's site)
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…
