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 neighbor really be?
This entire series definitely has its ups and down with every single book. The first one, Neighbors, obliterated me and made me eager to see what would be the outcome of Katya, Liam, and Wulfuric in The Neighborhood. Although I wasn’t too excited to read about Liam’s story, Block Party, I was on the same wavelength when it came to Landon’s story. As for someone who has to finish series and seek out everyone’s happy ever afters, reading this one was an absolute must. And boy what a treat it was, Landon and Tori’s story was absolutely not what I expected at all. By the end, it was pretty easy to name this book my favorite out of the series!
As you make your way through the series, you become acquainted with Tori and those long glances she gives Liam, she sees herself as someone who is simply just waiting in the shadows for that exact moment to get what she really wants. She’s the ultimate friend you’ll want to have, she’ll always be there for you. But when she feels like she fulfilled her role, everything goes away. As she watches her friends be happy with their ONE, she’s ready for hers. Planning on taking the bull by the horns, she finally takes charge, which went a direction she never thought would happen.
Landon. The twin of Liam. Ultimate bad boy, who just happens to be a doctor. The absolute definition of an a**hole, seriously, if you looked in the dictionary, his picture alone should be there. As much as these two hate each other, well Liam just hates everyone including himself, the attraction is there. And it’s off the charts. At this point, Tori feels like she hit rock bottom and Landon offers the perfect getaway from everything. A bit hesitant, she eventually accepts an all paid trip to somewhere warm and tropical. Little does she know, Landon has other things on his agenda including getting her in his bed, but nothing more.
Man, their love story was a complete rollercoaster, I could barely keep up with them. You couldn’t help but feel sorry for her in the beginning and as she can’t quite get what she wants. And that’s definitely the case towards the end of the book, poor Tori. She never knew what she was getting into when Landon barreled into her life. Landon’s life is just a hot mess, he sees himself as a dark person with no light left in him at all. But deep down there’s so much more to him and once you learn the real reasons why he is the way he is, you can’t help but have your heart break a little bit for him.
Tori is his light and I felt like pretty early on he knew that but refused to accept it because he was so undeserving. Yes, Landon is a complete bastard for the unimaginable things he put Tori in like I couldn’t believe he actually did that! By the time he realizes that, he also realizes how far down he has really gone. And that becomes a turning point for him, well for his life in general. Was there still hope for him to turn things around and prove that there is some good inside of him? Can he be enough for Tori despite all of his flaws?
Absolutely love this book and obviously my favorite of the series, Stylo, please don’t write anymore in this series, I just want it to end with Tori and Landon! Prepare yourself for this wild ride, it’ll keep you on the edge of your seat, and you’ll add another man that you should really hate, but can’t help it and just want to love him. Tori is Landon’s end game, it’s a sight to watch these two evolve. Landon showed Tori how strong of a person she really is, she can endure so much and her light still glows. Landon had so many things going against him, but Tori guided him to be the man she always knew he could be. I’ll be shipping them for life! This book has easily slipped its way into my #RSFaves.
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.
