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.
Caroline Reynolds should have the life. She has the perfect job, a great boss, amazing friends, and an amazing new apartment that she shares with her cat Clyde. The only thing missing? Caroline’s O you know her big happy ending after her bow chika wow wow. Yeah after a one night stand with Cory Weinstein or as Caroline refers to him as “The machine-gun f@*ker” Caroline has lost her O for over 6 months. On Caroline’s first night in her apartment she thinks everything is perfect except she hears: “Oh, God.” Thump. “Oh, God.” Thump Thump. Caroline is right ticked with her sex crazed neighbor who brings not one but three girls to his home for interesting performances before leaving town for weeks on end. When finally it’s too much and Caroline can’t take the thumping anymore she goes to confront her noisy neighbor in her pink nightie. Now suddenly the two are meeting at every turn and while they didn’t hit it off right away…like at all they quickly realize the attraction between them, but will Simon’s amazing bed thumping powers be able to wake up Caroline’s O? I think so.
Oh my goodness so I found this book on another blog and after reading their review I just had to get it. I read it in like one sitting and this book had me in giggling fits. I swear some of the scenes in this book are so freaking hilarious right from the beginning I just couldn’t not fall in love with Wallbanger. The characters are hilarious and just the many crazy circumstances that happen like water exploding from both the tub and kitchen while both characters are practically naked? Hilarious! Oh and the cat…*sigh* well I don’t want to spoil anything.
Simon whew he is one sexy man! I mean seriously he works out and likes to cook and is a great lover!! (Okay that totally sounded like I know from person experience.) Seriously though Simon is yummy:
“He had jet black hair that stood up straight likely from the Giggler’s hands buried in it as he plowed into hwe. His eyes were piercing blue, and cheekbones just as strong as the jaw. (…)I gazed down his long, lean bosy. He was tan, but not a premeditated tan-outdoorsy tan, weathered tan, manly tan. His chest rose and fell as he panted.”
Hello peeps yum yum yum right?
Awesomely relatable characters:
While I didn’t think I would relate too much to any of the characters I did. Caroline was perfect with strengths weaknesses and crazy friends. She’s such a strong woman and never beats around the bush with what’s going on or how she’s feeling and I really related and enjoyed that.
While many of the books I read are generally YA with insta-love and insta-attraction and yatta yatta yatta Wallbanger was definitely not like that. While the two characters were instantly attracted to one another they didn’t like each other and throughout the story they grow as friends and then as something more than friends…you know boyfriend and girlfriend who have great wallbanging sexy time. I definitely relate to that and I think from time to time it’s nice to have no insta-love or love that’s easy because in real life it’s not so yeah definitely liked that the author and the characters took the relationship slow.
All in all:
LOVED IT! Honestly I couldn’t have read a better book. Definitely great humor, relatable characters, great writing and amazingly swoon worthy scenes that will leave readers fanning themselves because I know I was. I would definitely recommend Wallbanger to anyone looking for a relatable humorous love story. Wallbanger is definitely one of the best adult romance fiction books I have ever read and so you should definitely go read this.
