The Synopsis for ‘Neighborhood’ :
Things a bad neighbor can do to you:
1. Have loud parties late at night
2. Refuse to mow his lawn
3. Steal your newspapers
4. Rip your heart out and walk all over it
Katya Tocci is willing to admit that she may have bitten off more than she could chew.
Liam Edenhoff showed her a side of life she’d been missing out on – sex and friendship and tacos. But then he betrayed her.
Wulfric Stone taught her that big surprises can come from unexpected places – like from a surly, aggressive, withdrawn bastard. But then he broke her heart.
Now one of them wants forgiveness, and the other wants forever. And Katya? She just wants to forget.
Who knew neighbors could be so difficult?
This story contains scenes of a graphic sexual nature, multiple uses of coarse language, and quite possibly enough confusion to drive a normal person insane. Reader discretion is advised.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘NEIGHBORHOOD’:
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novel of the Twin Estates Series.***
In the highly anticipated sequel novel “The Neighborhood” of the Twin Estates Series by Author Stylo Fantome, we’re thrust back into these character’s lives soon after the first novel’s story-line ended. The twisted lies and sexual betrayal that led to the mind-blowing cliffhanger of “Neighbors”(novel 1 of this Twin Estates Series) left us with the ultimate question: Is Katya done with Liam and Wulfric forever? This novel is written from the three main characters’ P.O.V.’s(Point of views): Katya Tocci, Liam Edenhoff, and Wulfric Stone.
Katya Tocci was left feeling hurt, used, and betrayed by two people she had grown intimately and emotionally close to. Knowing what she knows now, she channels her pain and anger, and sets off to bring to life a “New Katya.” This new her – is sexy, not afraid to make the rules this time, and plans to never let her self be toyed with again! Before long, Katya finds herself tangled in a web of games and confused emotions that only seem to leave her more unsure than ever before. Can Katya let go of Liam and Wulf or will she always be stuck between the two?
Liam Edenhoff feels horrible for everything that happened with Katya. He isn’t afraid to beg for her forgiveness and go back to her like a bad puppy with his tail between his legs. He’s made up his mind that he is good enough for her, while trying to figure out if that is what he truly wants. To make the situation a little more complicated, in walks his troubled and idolized twin brother, Landon. Can Liam really change his old habits for Katya or will he be the fun playboy that he’s always been?
Now that Wulfric Stone has had his time with Katya, he knows what he wants. He’s never been one to give up when something takes work. He has his own issues, like Liam and Katya have theirs, but his go back to so many secrets and problems that stem back to his childhood family life. Wulf will not give up his fight for Katya but when he sees Katya’s plan, he plays along while trying to be keeping some of the control in his own hands. While trying hard to win her back, he must face with his own family problems between his parents and siblings. Will Wulf be able to handle it all? Can he win Katya back once and for all or will she push him away for good?
The Neighborhood is gripping, enticing, and offers up a fantastic story-line. The main characters: Katya, Liam, and Wulf, all are well-written and are enjoyable in their own twisted and imperfect ways. The supporting characters like Katya’s roommate Tori, Wulf’s sisters Genevieve and Brighton, Liam’s twin Landon, and the other smaller-part characters keep this story interesting and full of dynamic and entertaining dialogue. This story seems to conclude, more or less, about what will happen between Katya, Liam, and Wulf. On that note, it does open up a whole new direction for this series to go. I highly recommend this novel and the Twin Estates Series because it is enthralling. Plus, you get a little teaser excerpt at the end of this novel for what’s to come in this series next! “Block Party” follows and we see that the drama and riveting story is just getting started for other characters in this series who have yet to find their HEA. This is definitely worth reading! Check it out! 🙂
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR RATING: ‘NEIGHBORHOOD’ 4 1/2 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined Katya, Wulfric, and Liam while reading ‘NEIGHBORHOOD’:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘NEIGHBORHOOD’★★★
Katya’s thoughts: How did we go from kissing and cookie dough, to yelling at each other in a garage? What is it about kissing me that makes men want to yell and use dessert as a weapon?
Katya’s thoughts in the heat of the moment: It had been so long. She hadn’t realized how much she missed touching him. Bad idea or not, she was beyond caring. Beyond rational thought, even. Definitely beyond stopping. Both their hands were between their bodies, pulling his belt apart, shoving his pants down.
Liam’s thoughts: Kissing her always felt good. But also to constantly remind her of who she was dealing with, what kind of man was standing in front of her. How good he was for her, and how much better he was than Wulfric goddamn Stone.
Wulfric and Katya: “I never stopped,” he said.
“Looking at you like you were Christmas. Even when you were angry. Even when you thought you hated me. Even when you were with him. You’ve always been a gift to me.”
“A gift,” she whispered, pressing her face to the side of his as she started crying again.
“Thank you, Katya. For being the best present I ever got.”
Katya and Wulfric: “You’ll always be my teenage dream, Wulf.”
“And don’t you forget it.”
“Never. Never, ever, never.”
“I guess it’s fair. You had to deal with an unrequited fantasy for years. Now it’s my turn.”
“Sometimes you are so beautiful, Wulf.”
“Take care of yourself. And if you ever need anything, anything at all, just call me.”
“But it was good, whatever it was.”
“It really was.”
“Katya Tocci – the best neighbor I ever had.”
“Wulfric Stone – the most interesting neighbor I ever had.”
Katya’s thoughts: Having a good neighbor is nice, but having one that loves you and takes care of you and makes every moment feel like it’s catching on fire? Well, that’s just the best neighbor ever…
