Blog Tour ARC Review: Neighbors by Stylo Fantome

Are you ready to meet the neighbors?

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?

I always love Stylo's work, so before I read the blurb I'm determine to read it. Well, well, well.... now I have to admit that maybe I really should read the blurb first. I like my kinky stuff, but I'm not one who enjoy sharing. Thank God there isn't an actual threesome scene. I'm okay with the occasional menage if it only took place at most ONCE in a book. More than that I can't deal.

Neighbors is about a Plain Jane's sexual discovery. The heroine in this case is suppose to be a girl who wore beige, although I'm not too sure is beige wearing is such a crime. Anyway, Katya is embracing sexuality and going all out to change her life. She want to be desirable, hot and practical transforming herself into a sex kitten.

Thrown in a Mr. Nice Guy and a Mr. Asshole, can this girl really handle them? Is plain unfair that she can hop between both of their beds. Can she be anymore greedy? Okay, there is no cheating here, if you are worry about it. All three of them know their deal and they are not exclusive. Yeah, sounds like a perfect plan. I'm sure you are there thinking 'As if'. I'm sure one of them is going to want more and then we can all exclaim 'I told you so!'. 

The plot is smooth and engaging, it get me going from beginning till the end. A little dose of mystery from Mr. Asshole. What's his deal? Honestly, I'm torn, I don't know whose ship should I board. I hate this kind of dilemma. I'm the kind of girl who needs to know who should I be rooting for. Is gonna be ugly when I got it wrong. Arg!!

Truthfully, I don't think I like Katya that much, due to reason aforementioned, which led to the rating above. If you have no problem with her situation, I'm sure it will be a blast read.

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.

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.
