The Voyeur Next Door by Airicka Phoenix Book Review

It’s another day, and another book review welcomes us! This time around, thanks to the “read” list from Carol’s Goodreads I stumbled upon The Voyeur Next Door by Airicka Pheonix, and let’s just say that this is the very first book that is considered part erotic and part contemporary that actually made me laugh! Ali, the protagonist of this story is beyond funny. Her side kick protagonist, Gabriel is a dream boat! Gosh! The way he is described, it’s as if someone took pieces of Henry Cavill, Jai Courtney, and Ian Samerhalt into one…

sighs heavily

Fanmade character portraits of Gabriel and Ali
Overall, the story plot is absolutely wonderful. Mrs. Phoenix manages to captivate her reader with the whole story line of the two protagonists being neighbors without them knowing that they are in the current status, and making them intimate with each other. She also does this by providing the dark insights of Gabriel’s past and his BDSM past. Airicka also has a marvelous addition of Ali’s past and the ways that, unfortunately our society now today focuses on. The body figure of women, and also the sexist remarks made by many. She acknowledges this by giving Ali the job in a masculine environment. It’s indeed not a strong suggestion or a strong movement, but it at least is something… I wouldn’t go all out and say that I support Ali’s decision-making, but hey, everyone does their own thing, even if they are fictional characters right? 🙂


With fourteen long chapters, this book is a must read! Rated on Goodreads: FIVE STARS!
