Title: Block Party
Series: Twin Estates #3
Author: Stylo Fantôme
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 19, 2017


Things you need for a good Block Party:

1. Awesome food

2. Great Music

3. Fun games

4. A secret spot to hook up with your even-more-secret girlfriend.

Liam Edenhoff is a simple creature. He likes women, tacos, and sex. As long as he has those in his life, everything is good. He's finally realizing maybe he's just not cut out for relationships - surely there's got to be a woman out there who'd be okay with roof top margaritas, casual sex, and no attachments.

Enter a new neighbor - one who is allergic to commitment and prefers her sex casual but frequent. She's seen him at his worst and is still willing to play his games, on three conditions - discretion is a must, casual is key, and absolutely no drama. Sounds like the perfect arrangement. What could go wrong?

Famous last words when dealing with neighbors.

This story contains scenes of a graphic sexual nature, multiple uses of coarse language, and more tacos than is healthy or sane to read about. Reader discretion is advised.

This is the third installment in the Twin Estates series

This is my first book by Stylo Fantome, and I will definitely read others. her sense of humor and her take on the different situations the characters find themselves in was interesting. I liked the characters and the writing overall, and the plot moved smoothly and was paced evenly.

This is the 3rd book in the block party series and it is focused on Liam and Ayumi. Liam seems to be the less serious of the group of friends, the one who people don't really take seriously and the one who got his heartbroken in a previous book in the series. Ayumi is serious. She takes everything seriously and lives a life that is focused mainly on her work.

The relationship between them shouldn't work, they should be too different. But, what they quickly realize is that the other is not what they thought, and they are each very different than they seem on the outside.

While it is technically a standalone, I was left feeling that I had about 75% of the book. There are crossover characters, which is fine in a standalone, but there are also references to past events. Don't get me wrong, that is fine in a standalone book that is also part of a series...but the issue for me with this is the references to the past events were used in a few places to move this story forward. When the plot hinges on knowing the details of something that happened in another book, for me, it ceases to be a standalone title.

I did enjoy this, and I do recommend it; but more for people who have read the other books in the series.

Author Bio

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.
