Perfection (Neighbor from Hell, #2)

Perfection by R.L. Mathewson

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

What I really don’t understand is why this series is called ‘Neighbour form Hell’, when clearly ‘Dudes with Inhuman Food Obsession’ (eating disorder, bottomless stomachs, etc) would be a much more appropriate title..

If the first book at least had a “fun fluff” section in the middle of its “ridiculous hang-ups” parts, this one is all only about the ridiculous hang-ups.
Also much more numerous boring monotonous reflection parts and abrupt time lapses.
Where the fist book was more about weirdness for comedy, here it feels more like an actual mental instability weirdness.
Overall, while the quality of the first book was nowhere near perfect, it actually went down a few levels in this one.

He: Self-centred, hardly ever governed by conscience, wants to marry a ‘perfect on paper’ woman, once he finds one to fit his criteria, believes himself above being attracted to women who don’t fit into that criteria, judgemental, forceful, unhealthily obsessed with food… Generally, an unapologetic asshole from all sides.

She: No self-esteem, eating disorder and body image issues that make her starve herself, unhealthy obsession with ‘cute’ things, tendency to be both blind and deaf to people around her.

Both have three wagons of relationship and sefl-image issues, and are permanent residents of the land of DeNial. They don’t know what they want and feel like ridiculous, pretty, empty-headed characters. As in, no evidence of using brain mass to think can be found.
And the more you think about actual content of this book the weirder it seems.
These characters don’t really read as actual human beings…

Honestly, I only finished this book because I was in this weird mood and wanted to reach a happy ending.
