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.
3.5 - "It must be hard to be king." Stars.
I really enjoy Marissa Clarke’s writing style, and the first book in the Anderson Brothers series was one of my stand-out reads of 2014. Book two; Neighbors with Benefits gives us Michael Anderson’s story. Uptight, stuffy and as the CEO of the Anderson fa... ...more
Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise
So the second book in this series kept me laughing quite a few times. The author does know how to keep us entertained with her characters. Mia and Michael are so different in their every day life, but at the same time, they are both driven.

This was a lot of fun.
Michael and Mia couldn't be more different and I loved getting to be in their heads. Their banter and back and forth was tension filled and really kept the story moving. Usually, the push and pull can irritate me, but with everything wrapped up in an arrangement, it was fab... ...more
Loved this book! It was a super fun read with interesting characters that made the story come to life. Free spirited Mia was perfect for the always serious business minded Michael. She brought a side of him to life with her snarky banter and quick wit. Michael was good for her too! Building confi... ...more

I loved the first book in Marissa Clarke's Anderson Brothers series, Sleeping With the Boss, so to say I was excited to get my hands on Neighbors with Benefits is a wee bit of an understatement.
