BOOK 1 To be read first.
Having good neighbours is nice? but having one that loves you and takes care of you and makes every moment feel like it's catching on fire? well, that's just the best neighbour ever.
Finishing book one with the hotness the lies and deceit the way it finished to say I was eager for book 2 is an understatement.
This is one of those books were one minute you are cheering for one character and the next the other, a love triangle but two very different kind of loves.
Liam is a joker,he's funny,charming a friend and hot while Wulf is an Alpha male, serious stern and an intimidating kind of guy.
I was very much team Liam, he made me laugh out loud so many times so I suppose it depends on your taste, I love a guy who makes me laugh, he was my choice from the beginning, Katya had to follow her heart in the end and make her own choice too.
I loved the cat and mouse game and especially when the mouse turns on the predators.
Book 2 felt different there were very little hot moments and it was slow going with Katya's bitterness and hurt following on from what she discovered at the end of book 1,her feelings and indecision went on way to long, she made the guys work for forgiveness but I felt it dragged on. I suppose I was just to eager to see how it would all eventually play out and who would get the girl.
"I never stopped" he said
"stopped what? "
"looking at you like Christmas. Even when you thought you were angry. Even when you thought you hated me. Even when you were with him. You've always been a gift to me"
"Thankyou, Katya. For being the best present I ever got"
I prefer dual pov's normally, I like being in the heads of the characters and I feel more connected, this was told in third person.
What I love mainly about The Neighborhood is great characters, a brilliant balance of humor, hotness and seriosness, the interesting and addictive storyline and having finally reached the end of Katya's crazy road to finding love and had a snipett of whats to come with other characters I am so excited about the next book and would definitely jump straight into that too.

Things a bad neighbor can do to you:
1. Have loud parties late at night
2. Refuse to mow his lawn
3. Steal your newspapers
4. Rip your heart out and walk all over it
Katya Tocci is willing to admit that she may have bitten off more than she could chew.
Liam Edenhoff showed her a side of life she'd been missing out on - sex and friendship and tacos. But then he betrayed her.
Wulfric Stone taught her that big surprises can come from unexpected places - like from a surly, aggressive, withdrawn bastard. But then he broke her heart.
Now one of them wants forgiveness, and the other wants forever. And Katya? She just wants to forget.
Who knew neighbors could be so difficult?
This story contains scenes of a graphic sexual nature, multiple uses of coarse language, and quite possibly enough confusion to drive a normal person insane. Reader discretion is advised.
Here's a little bit to hold us over till the 17th

She groaned and knocked once on Liam's door, then burst through it. He was in the kitchen, mostly hidden behind his open fridge.
“We need to talk!” she snapped, letting the door slam shut behind her.
“Huh?” he called back, his voice muffled.
“I think we should have sex, right now,” she said, pacing back and forth by his couch. He finally stood upright, letting the fridge fall shut.
“I'm sorry … what?”
He sounded so caught off guard, his voice was even different. She glanced at him, noticing he was only wearing a towel wrapped around his waist, then she kept pacing.
“Sex. I know I said no sex, but what the hell, it's been a long time, and I'm really pissed off, and everything is fucked up anyway,” she growled, pounding her fist into her palm. There was a pause as she made her way to the front windows, then she heard footsteps behind her.
“You want to have sex with me, like right this minute,” he double checked. He still sounded strange, so she turned to face him. He was standing at the other end of the long couch, smiling back at her. Something seemed off, but she couldn't quite put her finger on it.
“What's up with you? Have you been drinking?” she checked. He shrugged.
“Maybe a little.”
“Jesus, Liam, it's ten in the morning.”
“Hey, it's six at night in London,” he countered, smiling big. “So about that sex. We gonna do this, or what? We should hurry, before my -”
Before he could finish, though, he was cut off by the sound of the front door opening.
There was a rustling sound as grocery bags were kicked through it.
“Sorry, I decided to stop down at the corner store. That dickbag is always short changing me, I had to fight to get my five bucks back.”
Liam was striding into the apartment, scooting bags with his feet, his arms full of more bags.
Katya's jaw dropped open and she stared at him for a second. Then stared at the Liam that was standing in front of her. Then back at the other Liam. Her brain short circuited.
“You're Landon,” she blurted out, pointing at the man in the towel. She couldn't stop staring. She knew she was being rude, but it was amazing. Two Liam's, standing in front of her.
Though the more she stared, the more she could see the differences. Landon was a different kind of tan – super dark, the mark of someone who'd spent a lot of time in the sun. He was also more weathered, making him look just a tad bit older. His hair was longer and liberally sun streaked, and was being held back by a head band, she noticed for the first time.
But other than that, they seemed to be carbon copies of each other. Same height, same eye color, same bone structure, same body – Katya was very familiar with Liam's naked torso, so it was kind of shocking to realize she was also intimately familiar with Landon's. She had to force her eyes to not dip down to his towel.
“I'm sorry, what's going on?” Liam scratched his head.
“I … I thought he was you,” Katya stammered. “I didn't know he was here.”
“Oh god,” Liam groaned. “What did you say to her, Landon?”
His brother shrugged.
“Probably the same stuff you would say if a gorgeous girl burst in on you and demanded to have sex. Katya, it was a pleasure. Hopefully next time we meet, I'll be wearing more clothing, or you'll be wearing less,” Landon said before nodding his head at her. Then he walked into the bathroom and shut the door behind him.
