She never expected Oz to be the greatest culmination of those dreams. But sometimes fate determines who you fall in love with. Who makes you lose control. Who owns your soul.
And then you realize it wasn’t fate at all…

Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements.

So happy that one of my last reads of the year ended up being a SIX-STAR read!!! I never expected to find this perfect of a story, never even hoped I would connect with it so profoundly and adore its characters so much, but this book ended up being one of the most beautiful, poignant stories I have ever read. The author writes with such emotional intelligence, with so much heart and wit, it is impossible not to fall in love with these characters to the point of willingly losing ourselves in their every interaction. The story remains emotionally driven beginning to end, with no great highs or lows, but rather a constant stream of heartening moments that warm our souls from the inside out.
Wow, I think every piece of clothing on my body caught fire more than once while reading this crazy wonderful book. A true gem in every possible way, this was an addictive, well-written, impassioned love story that I simply could not get enough of, making it one of my top reads of the year, and most decidedly, one of the best sports-themed romantic comedies I’ve ever read. And, oh Lordy, were the sex scenes ever delicious!
A poignant but very sexy tale of a woman finding the man of her dreams, only to realise he’d given his heart away a long time ago, never wishing to have it back—this is a story that was unexpected in its depth and intensity, perfectly sprinkled with just the right dose of humour and eroticism to counterbalance some of its more sober themes, and cover to cover, absolutely impossible to put down.
What starts out as an amusing case of will-they-won’t-they, bursting with sexual tension at every corner, quickly changes into a touching love story between two kindred spirits who have a lot more in common than they ever thought possible. I loved every moment and found myself devouring this book in a single sitting.
From the moment I finished this book, all I wanted to do was go back to the very first page and read it in its entirety once more. There was simply not a single aspect of this story that I did not love, these characters and their story capturing my heart over and over again, and making me only greedier for more. R.S. Grey is a master at crafting tales that speak to the heart, but with this story, she sang to mine, making it an absolute joy to read.
I didn’t tell anyone I was reading this book because I was fearful I’d jinx it. It was a new author to me, but from the moment I read the blurb, I was drawn to this story, lured by its very premise and the gut-wrenching emotional conflict that would inevitably ensue. Within the sticky walls of a love triangle, however, I soon discovered a most persuasive exploration of the very state of being in love, of its limitations and its endless possibilities, and of how adaptable the human heart can be. I was rapt from the first page, consumed by its every word, and I still cannot stop thinking about it.
Neighbors by Stylo Fantôme is one of my fave books of 2016, but it left us with a cliffhanger, a rather BIG one. I have been dying for the conclusion to this delicious story ever since, so you can guess how excited I am to share with you the cover of The Neighborhood, and a release date!
