REVIEW - Neighborhood Watch - Stylo Fantome

TITLE - Neighborhood Watch
AUTHOR - Stylo Fantôme


Rules to Join The Neighborhood Watch:

1. If you see something, say something

2. Report all illegal activities to the authorities

3. Do not associate with criminals

4. And certainly don't fall for them!

Tori Bellows is a really good friend. She's always there when a shoulder is needed to cry on, to give dating advice, or for a good ol' time. Now, though, Tori is the one who needs a shoulder to lean on when she's in a tough spot. But all of her friends are too busy with their own lives.

Enter the Twin Estates' resident bad boy, Landon Edenhoff. When he offers her an all expenses paid vacation, she's immediately suspicious - he's rarely nice and his intentions are never good. But she's ready for a change of scenery and knows she can give as good as she gets from Mr. Rude & Nasty himself.

After all, how bad could this neighbour really be?

Jennifer's Review:

What a rollercoaster ride! I have been following this series from the beginning so I was beyond excited for Neighborhood Watch. Especially since we finally get a book about Tori. I have been wanting her to get her own book from the very beginning. This book isnt like any other book I have read. This book is downright raunchy, but in the best possible way.

I really enjoyed the plot of this book. Tori and Landon really can’t stand each other, but they decide to take a spontaneous vacation together anyways. Would it be a disaster? I loved these characters together and I loved how the author wrote the plot. No punches were held in this story and I loved it!

Tori is one of my favorite characters in this book. I feel like she is me sometimes. She is always the rock for her friends, while also being the life of the party when she needs to be. She is quick to give a smile to anyone. I love that about her. I also love how fierce she is. While she is a gentle soul, she can also be scary when she needs to be. She is not afraid to stand up for herself. Then you have Landon. I won’t lie. For a good portion of this book, I was cringing at Landon. He sure made it hard to like him. With that being said, I feel this was a very revealing story for him. I love that he is more than we originally thought.

Holy heat. This book is one of the raunchiest that I have read in a long while, which is saying a lot if you have read the others in the series. I think what made this one so much more is the fact that Landon has a dangerous air to him. Also, they were some very adventurous people. I applaud them for this because I wish I could be more like them in that department.

I loved the writing style of this book. This book had a faster pace, but I felt the pace set the tone for the book. This was one wild and crazy book. I loved the characters and the surprising twists and turns. I loved how this book was funny, but also serious at times. I feel the author did an amazing job with this book.

Overall, I absolutely loved this book. This book tackled some very serious topics, but did it in a way that felt respectful. I was so happy to read from Tori’s point of view. This book cemented the fact that she is my favorite character in this series. My only complaint is I wish the epilogue gave us more.

Star Ratings:
Plot: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Heat: 5/5
Writing Style: 5/5
Overall: 5/5
