But even a good girl's gotta cut loose once in a while, right? So one fake dating profile later, and she's ready to tarnish her squeaky clean image. Little does she know, her fun time is closer to home than she ever imagined.
Throw in a neighbor who wants to corrupt her, and another who just wants to own her, and her entire world is flipped upside down.
Who knew neighbors could be so helpful?
Well, hello there, I wish I had neighbors like these!
(But then again by the end of this book I wasn't sure whether I would wants such neighbors*thinks hard*)
I've been a fan of Stylo Fantome ever since I read her Kane trilogy in two days and finished off the Mercenaries series too later.The woman is a genius.I don't know where she comes up with such twisted,realistic characters with amazing storylines, but I would read anything she writes.
So, it isn't a really big secret that I was waiting (im)patiently for Neighbors.The blurb doesn't really tell you much of the story, and trust me its best to go into this book that way and let it surprise you!
We have Katya Tocci our main character who is a typical good girl.Loving daughter, hardworking baker and loyal daughter.She has always been focussed on her career, mostly wears beige.Hell, her life itself is painted in shades of beige.When her best friend tweaks her dating profile, she suddenly catches the attention of the hottie who lives in the neighboring bulding.
Liam Edenhoff has seen Katya around before, but considering her to be the Sunday School teacher type, he doesn't make a move.But when he sees her daring profile online, he is shocked!Who knew his neighbor was into such things!Except she is not!(but could she be persuaded to be?)When he asks her out on a date to to the sex club which he owns, Katya's inner vixen comes out and she accepts.She is tired of her boring life and is ready for a change.And Liam is just the right guy for it.
Though, she is a little uncomfortable in the beginning, she slowly unwinds and ends up having one of the wildest and sexiest nights with Liam.But soon she runs into an old crush, a neighbor from back home-Wulfric Stone.He is the exact opposite of Liam.Cold, undeniably magnetic, typical alpha and hottie executive.What's a girl to do with such two different but completely sexy men vying for her attention?
"You fuck a random stranger one time, and suddenly you've got more men on your hands than you know what to do with."
I'm not going to give away any more of the story, but let me just say it was mindblowing!It had the same addictive feel that the Kane trilogy had with creatively crafted complex characters!
I loved the slow devlopment and changes in Katya's character.Both Liam and Wulf were equally amazing and irritating and I'm glad we got certain chapters from their POVs.It helped to get their opinions and thoughts a little.
Within some time itself I had an inkling about the twist that might come our way soon.And it did come-in the end!!Man, was I pissed!I was completely onboard with Katya's reaction.Go girl!I'm totally #TeamKatya.I'm not on TeamTacos or TeamWulfy for now.
I can't wait to get my hands on book 2!I need it now!!
Stylo Fantome, if you're reading this hurry and please give me the next book!I'm dying here!
It was no joke.
Liam had been waiting in the lobby for her at nine o'clock, sharp. Liam Edenhoff – “but everyone calls me Eden” – he'd introduced himself again to her before guiding her out to a taxi he'd had waiting.
She felt a little nauseous. She'd chugged down another half bottle of wine, and some crème de menthe, before heading downstairs to meet him. She'd almost talked herself out of going, but she'd made the mistake of telling her roommate Tori about the whole fiasco. Apparently, Katya owed it to women everywhere (and Tori in particular) to explore this opportunity to its fullest. She'd all but been shoved out the apartment, the door slammed and locked in her face.
“Nervous?” Liam Eden-whatever-his-name-was asked her as the cab slowed to a crawl.
“Nope,” Katya's voice sounded overly loud.
“Liar. Tonight is gonna be an interesting night, angel cake.”
“Stop calling me that.”
“What's your last name?”
“None of your business.”
“Okay then – when the gang bang starts, I'll tell them to call you Katya X.”
She couldn't stop the blush from happening that time. Liam burst out laughing, then soothed the sting by grabbing her hand.
Even when they got out of the cab, he didn't let go of her. Normally, she would've been uncomfortable with a stranger assuming such a familiarity with her, but this time, she was thankful for it. She held onto him tightly as they walked down a crowded street. Then they turned into an alley, and his gang bang joke didn't seem so funny. He led her to a plain door, above which a simple, small, neon sign spelled out “The Garden”. Outside were several small groups of people, chatting and smoking. Some of them called out greetings to him, all of them using his nickname, but a large and scary looking bouncer addressed him very properly.
“Hey, Mr. Edenhoff, wasn't expecting you in tonight. Any problems?”
“Nope, just bringing a friend to show her the place, let her see what I do for a living.”
All the blood was quickly rushing from Katya's limbs, pooling somewhere in her stomach. None of this was a joke. He really did own the place, that much was obvious.
As Liam led her through the door, though, Katya actually felt a surge of confidence. She was still nervous, still more than a little scared, but she was okay with it. Liam seemed like a nice guy, he wasn't going to take her into some dark room and insert foreign objects into her orifices. She could leave whenever she wanted to, whenever it got too uncomfortable. Everything was fine, and for once, she was doing something exciting. She'd een have something interesting to talk about at work the next day.
About the Author:
Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
