    About "R.L. Mathewson"

    1. R.L. Mathewson

      Hello, my name is R.L Mathewson Before I tried my hand at writing I was a receptionist, cafeteria worker at the college I attended, museum worker, bellhop, and about a dozen other different things that are pretty embarrassing so we re just going to skip over those things and pretend that they never happened DAt some point I got a little direction in my life and tried my hand at emergency medicine, since I am, or at least was, deathly afraid of needles I opted for the fun job in EMS, an EMT It was a fun job, a bit stressful, but I learned a great deal and had the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life I learned a great deal from my patients and have never forgotten the wisdom they imparted on me After a short stint as a Residential Home worker I decided to try the stay at home mom job and found out something very important.I can t just sit around with nothing to do while I try to be deathly silent so that I don t wake up one of my children and send them into a blood curdling screaming fit So, to fill the time I started to read again When I was in school I was a bookworm, but got away from it as I grew older I was drawn back into my love of reading by Julia Quinn s What Happens In London It was a wonderful, witty book and I fell instantly in love with romance novels.Some of the romance novels that I read were great and I couldn t get enough, I started to play with the idea of writing a book Several months later I finally gave in and tried For four months straight I worked day and night until finally I finished my first book Then of course I re read what I wrote, cringed and deleted the entire book and started over again I started working on other projects and soon had two finished books, Tall, Dark Lonely A Pyte Series Novel and A Humble Heart A Hollywood Heart s Novel It was a very exciting time except for one little problemI had absolutely no idea what to do with the books now that they were done So, of course I put the books aside and forgot about them for a little while I worked on other books Months later I decided that maybe I should do something with them I looked into getting published, admittedly not very hard since what I read about the publishing process wasn t exactly making me jump and down with excitement.After reading an article about self publishing I knew that was the way I wanted to go I like the freedom to write what I want, when I want and publish a story that I hope others will enjoy reading It gives me a great deal of freedom and allows me to retain full control over my work, which of course allows me to set the prices of my books and make them affordable for everyone Which of course is the reasoning behind the 0.99 price tag for my books.That s how I became a writer and why I self publish Well, that and I m pretty laid back and don t want to be hassled with contractual obligations That would just cut into my writing time, time with my kids, reading time and my hot cocoa addiction Yes, I am thoroughly addicted to hot cocoa and if you re interested in experiencing the perfect cup of cocoa you can find the recipe for my cocoa somewhere on my author blog.

    1. Sudden Response by R. L. Mathewson was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to read something funny, light, fluffy and something that made me feel all sweet and giddy.In Sudden Response, Mathewson tells the story of EMTs and best friends, Eric and Joe (aka - Josephine). The pair have known each other since the age of eight following an incident where Eric shoved worms down Joe's dress and she returned the favour by making him eat the worms. That was the beginning of their friendship. They've [...]


    2. I am so happy to have discovered this Author!I've only read three of her books so far, and I gotta tell ya, her humor is fantastic, and I can't get enough of her characters.Joe & Eric are wonderful characters. They've been best friends since they were 8 years old. They met the first day Joe started at her new school when Eric shoved worms down Joe's dress, and Joe then proceeded to make Eric eat thus previously mentioned wormsey then proceeded to beat the crap out of each other.Their relatio [...]


    3. 3.5 starsThirty year-old Eric Parish loves working as an EMT. And not just because it's the best job he's ever had, but because his EMT partner is also his best friend, Joe. They've known each other for twenty-two years, through all the high and lows and ups and downs of life. But when Joe gets hurt during a call-out Eric decides that keeping Joe safe is more important than keeping her close.This is a light, cute, fun read. Nothing deep or profound here. Author R.L. Mathewson has an easy writing [...]


    4. Another enjoyable RLM book. It was too cute that Eric and Joe (short for Josephine) who have been best friends since they were eight years old never realised that they actually were in love with each other all this while. They just assumed that the mutual cannot-live-without-you feelings were common between best friends. But I must admit that their 'friendship' did kinda creep me out a little. I would not have been very touchy feely, snuggled, cuddled or sat on my guy bestfriend's lap (the way t [...]


    5. This is my third book by the author and they just keep getting better and better. I really do love friends to lovers stories. There is such a rich history between Eric and Joe that you instantly feel the connection between them. I also loved learning of the history of how Eric & Joe became friends and how his family unofficially adopted her. This was another case of almost wishing they wouldn’t get together because I didn’t want to see their friendship messed up, but at the same time the [...]


    6. I cannot finishah I know I am on page 143, but I just cannot do it!!!I don't care if Joe (girl) and Eric end up together; in fact I don’t care about them at all because I am bored stiff reading their every inner thought over, and over, and over, and over. Okay so you get the idea.This book didn't work for me at all, which is disappointing because the concept, friends to lovers, is one that usually a favorite of mine. IMO the story gets bogged down in the inane details. Sorry but I just don't c [...]


    7. This was another good book by this author and the best part it had a hero/heroine who knew each other very well and were best friends and there for each other whenever it counted and even EMT's. Yes, it took them a while for their friendship to turn into more but the feelings were always there but fear to change things stopped them. As always it has characters who are funny and not afraid to voice what they feel. The hero is over-protective and the heroine is not some weak lily who stands by it. [...]


    8. 3 maybe 3.5 starsI'm not sure what to say. It was funny, but I never laughed. It was adorable, but I didn't swoon. I liked the MCs, but they annoyed me with their push and pull. This best friends-lovers trope was a blend of Checkmate and Becoming A Vincent, but not nearly as good. Some unfinished sentences and a few grammar goofs. Sometimes repetitive. Some parts I really enjoyed; the H's protectiveness, their chemistry and their job. It was mentioned in passing about their other relationships, [...]


    9. It was a decent read. I haven't read a friends to lovers story in a while and this was a perfect read for me. A light, funny and sweet read; just the perfect combination if your head is messed up with too much angst and drama and you want a diversion.OVERALLI REALLY LIKED IT!


    10. I loved everything about this book. I know I say that about all of Mathewson's books but I REALLY LOVED this one. This author has very quickly become one of my favorites!!! It had me laughing from page one and I immediately fell in love with Eric and Joe as well as Nathan and Alice. (I hope Nathan gets his own book!!) The story was lovely, sweet, funny and "yummy". It's about two childhood friends who have done everything together, experienced milestones together and who love each other. The tra [...]


    11. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookHmm, what to write Let’s see. This book was ok but not very thought provoking for me. Sudden Response is the 1st book of EMS series by R. L. Mathewson. I’ve never read a medical romance before so I thought the EMS part of the book was quite interesting. I didn’t find the information boring; rather thought RLM knows her stuff while I read it. It could’ve been good since it had RLM’s humorous, sometimes sil [...]



    12. (July) 4.5* Things you are almost guaranteed to find in an R. L. Mathewson book:1. Some sort of cake or cupcake with peanut butter frosting (which I don’t know that I’ve ever seen - homemade or in a store/restaurant, so it always stands out to me).2. Someone buying/eating a coffee roll. Now, I have never heard of a coffee roll. I have no idea what a coffee roll is. I assumed it was literally a bread-type roll that for some reason you would eat w/your coffee (I had a 4th grade teacher who use [...]


    13. 3.5 sweet starsI absolutely adore a friends, turned lovers storyline - this one was no exception. The banter in this book is fabulous (like many of R.L. Mathewson's books) - it really brought these characters to life. And what a life - EMS work sounds truly crazy - you can tell with all the details that the author was once in this line of work - she definately depicted it with great passion for the job. There were some moments where the book started to drag a little. Some of that great detail st [...]




    14. I was completely disappointed. I never thought that book would be a DNF !By this author, I've read the Neighbor from hell series and I loved it so much, it was so terribly funny, that I jumped on her other books. So I bought the first installments of the "Hollywood hearts" and "Pyte/Sentinel" series but started with this one since it was a standalone so far.But I didn't like the characters. The H/H were righteous, they knew their job well, but none of the others did. They acted cold and uncaring [...]


    15. After reading a good four or five of R.L. Mathewson's books I've come to the conclusion that the only way I'd ever accept a marriage proposal would be if she scripted it. Once again another ridiculously cute book with brilliant humour that leaves a massive grin on my face.I think out of all her books 'Playing for Keeps' is still my favourite with this coming a close second.I did get frustrated at Joe and Eric while they were both reluctant to be with each other for pretty much the same reason an [...]


    16. Totally awesome book! Ok So I have no idea how it is I'm just now reading this when I have ABSOFREAKINLUTELY LOVED the other books R.L has written! I mean really, I already knew she was awesome! Now I have to find a better word to describe her! :) This book is hilarious! I seriously loved Eric and Joe! Their relationship was the bestest ever!! It did put me in the mind of Jason and the other Bradfords, which just made it even better cause they are all The Shit! For quite some time now I have bee [...]


    17. I loved RL Mathewson's humor, witty banter between characters and sexy scenes, and this book is no exception!! Joe (Josephine) and Eric have been BFF's since they were 8. Now, at age 30, they work together as EMT's and are still BFF's. After a call gone bad, Eric starts to worry more about something happening to Joe on the job and tries to get her to find another occupation and their relationship starts to change. They have both been attracted to each other, but don't want to risk their friendsh [...]


    18. I feel like such a critique right now because this book on the whole wasn't actually bad it just didn't work for me. If I had read it a year ago I would have enjoyed it but right now all these little things nag at me. The gold digger jokes don't sit well with me. The fact that these 30 year olds aren't all that mature kind of bothers me. I cannot over look these tiny details any more and while this book was funny, I wasn't laughing. I spend a lot of the time cringing in embarrassment. One of my [...]


    19. 3.5 stars. A really nice feel-good friends to lovers story. No drama, no craziness. I hope she eventually writes a book for Nathan! I didn't like this one as much as the NFH series, but you can't go wrong with a R.L. Mathewson book!


    20. A fun, light hearted, quick read, with a fair few steamy scenes. This book was just what I needed at a time when I wanted a break from any books that were too heavy or intense. Would definitely recommend.


    21. Aaaahhhhh, I love friends-to-lovers stories, and I really loved this book!! It was funny and romantic, and has left me feeling all swoony and ridiculous with a stupid grin plastered across my face. Josephine (Joe) and Eric have been best friends since they were 8. They are completely in each other’s lives, and even work together as EMTs. Essentially soul mates, they have a fantastic relationship – they tease, they joke, they are affectionate and are 100% there for each other. And they are bo [...]


    22. "Because they weren't you, Joe. I didn't want them the way that I want you and I sure as hell didn't love them. I love you, Joe, and I want to be with you."I wanted a light, sweet, and fluffy read and that's exactly what I got with this! I completely adored R.L. Mathewson's Neighbor From Hell series, so I thought reading another funny book of hers would be a safe bet and I sure got what I came for. How can I not love a story about childhood best friends becoming lovers? Even though that story ha [...]


    23. Read more reviews on my blog | Like me on FacebookI have read previous books by R.L. Mathewson and really enjoyed it so decided to read the EMS Series to add to my list.Sudden Response is about Joe (Josephine) and her best friend Eric who have been best friends since childhood. Joe and Eric are paramedics and work for the same fire station. They do everything together and come in two. Whatever Joe does so does Eric. After an intense scene at a call the Eric and Joe were called to, Eric suddenly [...]


    24. 5 Awesome Stars This book had me laughing a lot. Eric loves Joe since they were 8 years old. That's incredibly cute but creepy at the same time lol. This book reminds me of Double Dare and that's why I love it so much :).“You know you're buying me a steak dinner, don't you?" Joe whispered against his lips.He couldn't help but chuckle against her lips. "I knew you were a little gold digger.”“That you'll marry me and make me whole, Joe," he said on a reverent whisper.”“Fine," he said, sm [...]


    25. Sudden response was flat out FUN !! Fantastic hunky males , lovable female lead ,both with sass & spunk that made me laugh . After reading generational sin ( a book that took me on a sexy ,scary emotional roller coaster ) I sooooo needed a fun , light hearted read & sudden response was exactly what I needed !! It had me laughing out load & joyously swooning . Even that mother had me giggling & wanting to slap her at times :) I love a book with a sense of humor & this book had [...]


    26. Absolutely loved this ! But then again I love all of Mathewson's books. Joe and Eric were love-able, hilarious and so darn cute ! I kept smiling and laughing thought the story. Best friends since like forever! Working as partners as EMT's. Their relationship is just something else. Times a changing. Can things for them Stay the same? Only one way to find out :) take a ride with Joe n Eric . R.L. Mathewson does not dissappoint :)


    27. This book just didn't dazzle me. It had a sweet romance however it was just missing that spark that makes it a great book. In her other books humor was a huge player and this book was lacking humor. I really wanted to love it however I just didn't sadly. I just expected more. I have read two other books from this author and loved them. This certainly won't be the last I read by Mathewson.
