Neighbors By Stylo Fantôme – ARC Book Review

Stylo Fantôme had me on the edge of my sit, waiting for this book to be released. Little did I know that I was simply being fooled with this story hahaha! Neighbors by Stylo Fantôme is out today, September 27th, so check it out if you are interested by the synopsis down below!


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’ve honestly been waiting for this copy for such a long time now, that I was screaming my lungs out when the book arrived in the mail. The cover and the synopsis makes you want to ravish this book entirely! But, when you start reading… Well, lets just say that’s a different story to tell…

The story begins with the third perspective point of view from Katya, the female protagonist of the story, and her about to be live dating profile, which her friend Tori started up for her. What Katya does not know is that her next “building” neighbor, Liam Edenhoff has been watching her around (in the non-so-creepy way) ever since she moved into her building. He thinks that she is an innocent ray of sunshine, a librarian or a school teacher because of the way she dresses. His approach towards Katya is just so blunt and candor, it actually made me laugh at how his ego is probably so high to think that Katya will say yes to his inquiry.

“I was going to invite you to my club…”

And then, there is the mystery…

“It’s not that kind of club…”

Well, HELLO THERE! Hahahaha!

His mindset intentions are completely different to what his “partner” has in his mind… At first, the story does not introduce Liam’s partner and what he does, and the mystery of what Liam does for a living is also present which is one of the major reasons why this story is so intriguing. It gets to a point where it’s pretty explanatory;

“Day one, Katya has made an in-the-moment decision to go out on a date with a random stranger and have sex with him in his sex club…

“Day two, Katya had gone on a kind-sorta-date with a ghost from her past…

“Day three, it all cam crashing down. Oh god, oh god, what had she done?!”

Honestly, I was uncertain at first because I am not one to read books where sharing is actually a turn-on, but I decided to give this story a try, and to be speaking fairly, I really liked the beginning. It got up to the point where we meet Wulf, the second male protagonist in the story, that my likes for the story began to diminish. His character is one that I truly, deeply, and most of all passionately dislike in every sense of the way. He actually makes me question whether there are actually really highly intelligent women in this world, but instantly become a dumb piece of meet being used for the ultimate and most cliché way possible; sex. This story basically portrays that, not only through Katya and Wulf, but also with Liam being added to the picture…

At the end of the day, I enjoyed having something to read and keep my head busy, but I certainly did not enjoy the story as much as I was hoping to…
