Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

4 Stars

Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a Kitchen Aid mixer to die for, 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, she also has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Every 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. 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. Because with walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick. A delicious mix of silly and steamy, this is an irresistible tale of exasperation at first sight.


   My thoughts; This book was on my TBR before it ever released. When it finally came out it seemed like there was always something that kept me from reading. So, after my sister read it she would ask me regularly ... "Have you read it yet?" ... so finally while on blogger hiatus I decided to read it. We were in the process of moving and I would have to sneak it in when no one was looking but I fell in love. From the first OH GOD I was hooked. I love the humor with which this book was written.

   Being wildly attracted to your neighbor who coincidentally you have a deep seated anger toward really does make for a very fun storyline. Caroine and Simon and made for each other, they push each others button and get under one another's skin at every turn. But you just know that when it finally happens it will be AWESOME!

   The side characters, who are very much apart of the story are also hilariously fun. The camaraderie between  friends is great. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and light love story.
