READ MY BOOK REVIEW
Hate Thy Neighbor by S.M. Soto is MUCH different than the other books I’ve read from her and I LOVED IT! The cover makes it feel like a light and airy read but honestly, it’s a deep book with well built characters and realistic emotions that come off to the reader as being truthful. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely FUNNY parts to this novel, but there are also serious pieces that make it a well-rounded and realistic read. Gosh, I loved it so much!
S.M. Soto has taken over my LIFE with her books. Each one that I read consumes me and that’s no different here. Roman Banks is the perfect hero; he’s a bit moody, but he’s such an amazing man! I fell for him almost instantly. Olivia is a sassy woman with big old lady balls, and I felt so connected to her that she could have been ME. The two have their own issues and when their issues almost CLASH it’s one hell of a ride! Readers are going to absolutely love this one!
If you’re in the mood for a romcom AND an emotionally realistic read, then look no further! Hate Thy Neighbor has it all and you won’t be able to help falling in love.
READ AN EXCERPT
I hear a soft pop behind me, and when I turn, I find Olivia sitting cross-legged on her couch, watching me closely, with a lollipop hanging out of her mouth. A smirk tips the corners of her lips.
“A girl can get used to this.”
“To what exactly?”
“A hot guy in the middle of her living room, putting back the pieces of her miserable life together.”
Closing the distance between us, I stare down at her fixated on the way the stick of the lollipop juts out between those pink bee-stung lips. Gripping the end that’s hanging out of her mouth, I tug, and she lets go with a pop that goes straight to my groin. Taking the lollipop, I put it into my mouth, and her mouth drops open, her eyes heating with desire.
“About that bed.”
She licks her lips, pushing to her feet. “Oh, that’s right. What was it you mentioned earlier? You’ve been waiting to fuck me there?”
Christ in heaven.
My cock goes from half-mast to hard as a fucking rock at her words.
That mouth will be the death of me.
Knowing the effect she’s having on me, Olivia smiles. It’s downright sexy and full of seduction. Tugging my hand in hers, she pulls me along after her, leading the way to her bedroom.
With slow, methodical movements, she strips her shirt off over her head, leaving her in a sports bra. I drop down onto my haunches beside her on the bed, resting my hands on her hips. I hear her sharp intake of breath, as I begin tugging her bottoms down her legs. She bares her center for me, and I groan when I get a closer look at her pussy. Back at the garage, everything was fast and hot, but here, I want to take my time with her.
“You stole my lollipop,” she whispers, tucking her bottom lip between her teeth, nibbling on it.
“I wanted to taste you.”
Her brows dip. “And you thought that was best done with a lollipop?” I hear the amusement in her voice. That’s what makes what I’m about to do next so damn perfect.
“I can show you much better than I can tell you, Sunshine.” Taking the lollipop, I drag the sticky ball of sugar down her stomach and pause just over her pubic bone. She gasps, and when I glance up at her, I see the knowing gleam in her eyes.
Taking the candy, I swirl it around her clit, enjoying the way she squirms on the bed. The way her hips ride off the sheets and she moans, begging for more. I apply more pressure, swirling through her folds, and then I pause at her entrance.
“You like that, Olivia?”
“Y-yes,” she pants.
As I slide the sucker inside her, she groans, drawing a deep chuckle from my chest. “I thought so.”
I fuck her slowly, sliding the lollipop in and out, watching the way her walls grip the candy, the way she glistens and drips. With one last stroke, I pull it out and slide the lollipop over my tongue, tasting her.
Her eyes slam shut, and she tosses her head back onto the sheets.
