I received this book from Give Me Books PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

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.

I never thought Liam, my favorite naughty guy/sex club owner would fall so hard, but he did (without even realizing). Block Party is the third book in the ‘Twin Estate Series’ and tells the story of Liam and Ayumi, I just love this couple.

“You’re very popular, Mr. Edenhoff,” she said when he finally reached her side. “You’re the only lady who refuses to fall for my charm,” he replied, toasting her with his beer. “I think it’s what I like best about you. Or hate most. I can’t ever decide.

After Katya has chosen for Wulf in The Neighborhood, Liam is kind of licking his wounds. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t have women in his life to mess around with, but something seems to be missing. Ayumi, who works for Wulf, helps Liam with the accounting part of his business. She’s nothing like the girls Liam usually goes for, but one moment changes that. For some reason Liam and Ayumi just work, they both don’t want to admit it, but what they feel comes close to love.

“It was just the two of them, no one else mattered, and he didn’t feel like he needed to prove anything. For the first time ever, he felt good about what he was doing, what they were doing. Like it was just enough to be together.”

Block Party is already book 3 in the ‘Twin Estate Series’ (and luckily not the last!) and brings the reader back to the world of Wulf, Katya and Liam. Wulf and Katya are still very much in love, and Liam is dealing with the aftermath of the wild period he went through. Parts of the story are funny, other parts much more serious, I love this mix.

Liam, Liam, Liam… I want to hug you and I want to slap you… Well, slap the man you were, and hug the man you are becoming. I didn’t expect this confident, cocky guy to be insecure, but in a way he was, and I didn’t like that for him. Ayumi is a sweetheart, and the product of her upbringing. I felt so sorry for her, she’s so successful but she still thinks she doesn’t deserve something good. I love Liam and Ayumi as a couple, they belong together.

“I guess if you have to be my first,” she spoke carefully. “Then I’m glad I also get to be yours.” “And maybe, if we work really hard and I’m not too much of an idiot and you’re not too much of a nut case,” he started, and she slapped him in the arm. “We’ll get to be each others lasts.”
