Book Review: Neighbors by Stylo Fantome

Neighbors (Twin Estates, #1)
Things a good neighbor can do for you:

1. Give you a cup of sugar

2. Let you borrow his lawnmower

3. Water your plants while you're on vacation

4. Make your eyes roll back in your head with his tongue

Katya Tocci has never paid much attention to who lives next door - her career always kept her too busy. She's a good girl, working her way to becoming the most sought after cake designer in all of San Francisco.

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?

What wait! Tell me that there's more to come. I'm hoping this book is not a stand alone but I'm not sure my heart can take another book.

Katya Tocci is a very respectable woman, she lives her life in the beiges. She follows societal rules until she meets Liam 'Eden' Edenhoff. He's her neighbor who recognized her from her dating profile she created and her roommate altered.  Liam brought out the uninhibited Katya, she became sexually liberated.

Katya has a new swing in her step after her night with Liam. Her sexual prowess must be off the charts because before she knows it she was being commanded on a date with Wulfric 'Wulf' Stone, her neighbor from the past. She had a teenage crush on Wulf, watching him from her bedroom window swimming laps.

Initially Katya finds herself drawn to both men. Liam is a good guy, he treats her well but she soon moves him into the friends zone. Wulf on the other hand is mostly a jerk. He actively pushes Katya away because of his own insecurities.

At one point Wulf crossed the line and I wasn't sure if he could be redeemed. Katya has a big heart and fights for him. I struggled with scene. What Wulf said was despicable but Katya was able to give him another chance. What Katya hadn't known was that Wulf and Liam have a secret, a secret so big that it will destroy them all. The story starts off with Katya's sexual awakening and ends off with the new Katya scaring the hell out of me. 3.5 Stars.
