Blog Tour: Neighbors by Stylo Fantome



ONLY $0.99
**limited time only**


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?

Review by Lisa Kane

Katya Tocci is a baker who dreams of owning her own bakery. Her roommate Tori, opens up an online profile of her on a dating site, Eros. Of course she embellishes her hobbies (ok, she lies about them) and Katya gets more than her share of interest. But it's her neighbor Liam Edenhoff who is most interested. He wrote her off as a gorgeous girl but too vanilla for him. He owns a sex club and was sure Katya would have no interest in the kind of fun he likes to have. But obviously judging from her online profile, he was mistaken. 

Liam introduces himself, lets Katya know he would love to get to know her. When he brings up the dating site, Katya writes him off as a weirdo. But he manages to pique her interest and she finds herself agreeing to meet up with him to go to his club.  Once she's there, Katya wants to be the bad girl, she's tired of her tame life. Let's just say she gets what she came for with Liam. 

Me. Katya Tocci. I'm going into a real live sex club. Holy shit, that is so Bad. Ass. 

When she's at work, a hot guy comes in to order cupcakes. She recognized him as having been her older neighbor years ago. He doesn't seem to recognize her and comes across as a real douche. 

"Some guy from back home. It's not really a date, I don't think. He came into the bakery, and I thought he was just some asshole who didn't recognize me, but then snooty-pants-assistant-lady came back in, and she told me seven o'clock sharp, and-" she began to explain.

But later his assistant comes to the shop and tells her he wants to meet up with her. Wulfric Stone is an enigma.

He wants Katya but he thinks he is bad to the bone. But he still pursues her. So let's count-Katya went from an empty bed to now having two men. I think things moved too fast for me and things just got too complicated. 

There is a ton of sex in this book-lots of experimenting. Katya comes across like a yoyo to me-she likes Liam, she likes Wulfric, she wants to be friends with Liam, she wants to be lots of things to Wulfric.

And then of course the bottom drops out and we are left waiting for the next part. I liked the characters enough, but I had no real connection to them. I kept waiting for more-more layers, more depth but the insta love just didn't work for me. 

I will not let these boys ruin me.

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.
