Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O.
Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and–was that a meow?–punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O.
Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick…
In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.
My thoughts after reading...
I was apprehensive about reading this at first because of its title... I may be a bit naive but I do know what Wallbanger means given the fact that I've been reading a whole bunch of adult contemporary books... 😉
I was expecting it to be erotica but to my surprise, it wasn't... They didn't even make love until the near end of the book... Simon is just so candid and dreamy. He compliments Caroline's personality. They really do make a cute couple... 😊
It was such a fun and nice read. It leaves the reader lighter but also wishing for an epilogue. Personally, I wanted to know if they really lasted and eventually got married...😊
It was funny and romantic...
