Are you ready to meet the neighbors?


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?


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.

Where to begin.....
This book floored me. I was NOT in any way ready for the ending but I knew there had to be more to this story knowing this author the closer I got to the end.
I finished last night but in no way was in any shape to try to form coherent sentences let alone write this review!!
Neighbors is the story of a sweet, innocent girl who decides (with the help of her roommate) to expand her horizons. 
Setting up an online dating profile seems innocent enough, until her roommate Tori changes it up and she finds herself inundated with replies that are much filthier than what she expected. Glancing at her profile she sees why.

Lucky for her she doesn't really need to keep that profile up considering her neighbor Liam saw the profile and recognized her. He makes sure they run into each other and asks her out.
At first she's put off but agrees to go to The Garden, a sex club Liam owns.
Once there she really lets go!
Liam doesn't push but allows the wide eyed innocent to guide him.
The things she does with him would make a sober Katya blush but with a few shots she drops her inhibitions just enough to take a shot an see what she's been missing.

Her next day at work in walks her childhood crush.
This mad ignores her, seems to not recognize her and treats her like dirt on his shoe. Sending his assistant back with a card and a time she assumes it's a business meeting. 
She's wrong.

Two men.
One man wants her heart, the other her soul.
One wants to love her the other own her.
Katya is lost, she doesn't want to hurt anyone but sees the one person getting hurt the most to be herself.
She finally mans up an decides it's time to tell each man what she's feeling and that's when a bomb drops.
Full on nuke.
Lives destroyed kind of thing.

This book, I still cannot get over the way it went down. I love Stylo Fantome and knew there had to be a twist somewhere but I so never saw this coming. 
Neighbors is hot, dirty, sweet, sexy, dark, twisted and based on lies and secrets.
It's heat level is off the charts.
I was sucked in from the first chapter, the author wound me around her little finger and had me believing in happily ever after even if it wasn't the man I was rooting for.
Then she drop kicked me.
Tossed me on my ass and left me dazed and confused. 
What in the hell did I just read?
A book that had me anxiously turning pages, waiting for a resolution only to give me one that I never could have imagined in my wildest dreams.

5 stars

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.
