Block Party Block Party by Stylo Fantome
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Such an outstanding series and one every romance reader should experience 💕💕💕

I’m so relieved that this isn’t the last book in this truly fascinating series. I have loved each and every book so far and Block Party was as much of a hit as its predecessors. As I’ve said before, many times, Stylo Fantome is an amazing writer. Her stories are captivating and the storylines flow effortlessly. The characters she creates are endearing and memorable.

Block Party picks up the story after Katya’s epic fall from grace (in my eyes) in The Neighborhood. Now with Wulf, Katya has left Liam at a loose end. Solely in charge of his sex club, he and his right-hand woman, Tori, are all he has in his life, apart from Brie, Wulf’s rather persistent sister and Liam’s biggest hookup mistake to date. With Brie not understanding the word no, Liam finds his life in turmoil, well apart from his business dealings but that is only thanks to Tori and Ayumi, Wulf’s assistant and Liam’s part-time accountant. Ayumi is all business and really does live up to her Ice Queen name. With little to no sense of humour, much to Liam’s chagrin, Ayumi is sexy but cold and aloof but, as they say, opposites do attract and when Ayumi ends up in Liam’s apartment having escorted a paralytic Tori there after a night out which also included Katya, Liam finds an altogether different side to Ayumi on his hands.

What Liam and Ayumi have is explosive but with Ayumi’s fears of rejection and lifetime belief that she’s not good enough for anyone or likely to ruin anything she comes close to having for herself, thanks to her mother’s cruel taunts, anything more that one night stand with this beautiful but closed off woman is practically impossible. That is until Wulf gives Ayumi a task which sees her needing to escape her day job for a short while before commencing it. With Liam about to set off on a road trip, Ayumi finds herself asking to tag along and that’s when we get to see the real Liam and Ayumi.

Both characters are enigmas in their own right but it’s only with time do Ayumi’s many layers reveal themselves as we get to find out why she has become so broken. As you would expect, any sort of a romance between Liam and Ayumi is going to be one step forward and two steps back and whilst their deliberate relationship was endearing it was also equally frustrating but with all great stories, you are teased with hope and the possibility of a HEA and eventually Liam starts to win the battle for Ayumi’s affections or does he?

As this story progresses, readers are also teased with a possible romantic development which nicely leads into the next story and the end of the book even treats, or taunts, you with an insight into the start of Tori and Landon’s story. I can't wait!

I simply can’t recommend this series enough, or any books by this author come to that. They all captivating and leave you wanting more. I always savour every word on every page - there’s no speed reading with these books, so sit back, get comfortable and enjoy the ride.
