REVIEW – NEIGHBORS (Twin Estates #1) by Stylo Fantome



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?

This story contains scenes of a graphic sexual nature, multiple uses of coarse language, and one scene of violent cake destruction. Reader discretion is advised.

Way better than just borrowing a cup of sugar from your sexy neighbor. If you’ve read a Stylo Fatôme book you know her stories are always sexy, mysterious and perhaps a little bit weird, which is why I’ll forever need her books in my life. This author always brings it up a notch, and Neighbors was one hell of an entertaining, crazy ride.


Katya Tocci lives a pretty boring life. Her focus for years has been on her career as a baker. She’s not a risk taker. She’s a good wholesome girl, who’s always doing the right thing. It’s been quite a while since her last relationship, so her best friend/roommate has convinced Katya to create an online dating profile in order to meet someone new. Her crazy roommate embellished Katya’s profile a bit, and soon she catches the interest of a sexy man who happens to be her neighbor.

Liam aka Eden lives in the building next to Katya’s, he’s noticed her before because she’s gorgeous but he never approached her due to her frumpy librarian look, thinking he’s too wild for her. But after reading her sexy profile he’s decided to invite her out to his club.

“Tacos. Noon. You’re a sexy beast.”

Katya is tired of people reading her so easily. She’s tired of the same old boring girl she’s become, so when her sexy neighbor Liam invites her to a sex club, against all of her instincts she decides to go. Katya is ready to discover new things and embrace her inner, dark desires and Liam is the perfect man to help her.


While Katya is on this journey of indulgence , Wulf, her childhood neighbor also makes a re-appearance in her life. She used to have a huge crush on him, and now years later, Wulf is looking better than ever.

Katya can’t believe her luck, a week ago her colorless life consisted of going from home to work, and now there’s two gorgeous, and successful men wanting to spend time with her, making her feel and do things, she never even knew existed. She’s walking a dangerous path that is exhilarating, but what happens when she reaches the end of the road? Will she lose herself between love and lust, and will she be able to recognize the difference between the two?

This story is so much more than a love triangle, so much more than a romantic story, just so much more than you’ll ever expect. Neighbors is a story as smooth and dangerous as a sword, as decadent and as rich as a vintage wine. Stylo Fatôme will tease your senses, and play with your emotions, leaving you dying, desperate for more.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4 STARS*****

You open my eyes and widen my boundaries. He makes me contract. My eyes only see him and he’s my only boundary. You’re both just so … different. Completely different, in what you do for me, and how you make me feel.”




Stylo Fantome has been on my radar for some time now. I kept seeing all these fabulous reviews for her books and my Bestie devours her books. When I saw the blurb forNEIGBORS, I figured now’s the time to try this author out. Well, one thing is for sure, Stylo can write some prettySCORCHING HOT sexy time scenes. There are a plethora of them within the pages of this book!! This is a love triangle but in all honesty, the people involved are single and no commitments have ever been made. The heroine makes both men aware that she is having relations with the two of them. So those who don’t like triangles can actually read this one.




Katya Tocci is a young woman who lives a very dull and ordinary existence. At the urging of her roommate, she joins an online dating site in order to spice things up a bit. Her profile catches the eye of her very gorgeous neighbor, Liam Edenhoff. Liam has seen Katya around but never approached her because she appeared to be virginal and dresses like a librarian. He’s completely surprised by her racy online profile and decides to pursue her. The two end up making plans to meet up at his sex club. Katya agrees to go only because she wants to prove to Liam that she is not the demure woman that he has made her out to be in his head, but Katya really is quite innocent and this is taking her way out of her comfort zone. Now here’s where my eyes were rolling!! They end up having sex in a booth, right out in the open for all the club goers to see. To top it all off, she even has anal sex for the first time in said booth!!!! I’m not sure that a woman who has never lived life on the wild side before would partake in such overtly sexual escapades!! I started to get mildly irritated with the number of times the heroine mentions having anal sex with Liam! It felt like not a day could go by where she wasn’t mentioning it or thinking of it.

The next day, Katya runs into an old crush from her past in the bakery that she works at. At first, it seems as if Wulfric Stone doesn’t even recognize her but he soon is ordering her to meet him later on for dinner. This man was the unattainable boy next door from Katya’s childhood. Wulf is several years older and never paid her any attention back in the day but he was definitely the star of all of her romantic fantasies. Wulf is still devastatingly handsome, an alpha male to the extreme, and never really shows Katya what’s going on inside his heart.




Katya carries on relationships with both men but it is obvious who holds her heart and whom she only sees as being a really good friend. I definitely was on Team Wulf!! Men who act like assholes usually do it for me in books!! As time goes on Katya feels that she can’t keep things going with two men. Her conscience is eating away at her.

I struggled for a while with this book because I didn’t like the Heroine so much. I kept thinking of her as a doormat. But once I got to the 72% mark, I was HOOKED!!!! The story gets very intense. I was laughing, then swooning, and by the end I was furious!!! I just need to know what happens next after one hell of a cliffhanger we are left with!!!!
