Neighbors cover

Synopsis

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?

Grace Review

When you trust an author, you 1-click on a book without knowing anything about it.
And the reason you continue to do so, is because the story they deliver is worth it every time.
That sums up my feelings for this author and her writing.

Other than an aggressive Alpha, or two in this case, each book of hers has a completely unique theme.  What surprised me the most with this story was the heroine.

Katya is boring.
She wears beige.
She’s solely focused on her career, and doesn’t worry about her lack of dates.
She would never consider herself adventurous.  Particularly in bed.

However, one fake profile on a dating site, two suitors, and their preconceived notions about how far she’ll go, has Katya letting go for the first time.  It is H-O-T!!!

Buh-bye, old-Katya.  Can’t say I’ll miss you.  Thanks for the beige clothing.

This author wastes no time dialing up the heat in this one.  I clearly didn’t have my extra pair of panties ready at 10%.  Sweet baby Jesus!  But let me be clear, while there are a lot of steamy scenes in this book, this book actually has a plot too.  And it is good.

I’m not afraid of a good love triangle story.  It produces some great angst.  However, this book was unlike any other, in that, I actually liked the heroine.

She’s 100% honest with both men.
In addition, it doesn’t take long for it to become clear who she prefers.
Does she lead the other one on?
In my opinion, no.

“I like seeing you covered in me,” he whispered in my ear.  “Like a brand.  Showing who you belong to.”

So am I Team Liam or Team Wulf?  On paper, Liam is more my type, minus the whole sexed up occupation.  But for Katya, I was Team Wulf, even though he is a monster of a jackass most of the time.

Katya hadn’t needed to confess how she was feeling – it shined out of her.

There’s a huge twist in this one, and I pretty much saw it coming.  Yet, that didn’t make things hurt less.  Kick to the gut!  Ouchy!  What really surprised me was not how bad I felt for Katya.  That pain is obvious.  But I actually felt bad for all three of them.  They each broke in their own way and I’m not sure how they will pick up the pieces.

Yes, this ends in a cliffy.  However, the way it ends, made me want to pick up pom poms and cheer, “Go Katya!”  Oh and Stylo, “write faster!”  LOL

Another winner and a definite recommend!

Excerpt

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.

Finally.

About
SF

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.
