Book Blurb

The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she's gaining an intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy's athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed dating hiatus, and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly...

In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight...
 
 
 

Review

The Big Bang— the reason I'm alive.

And apparently the reason why Caroline is awake for most nights in her new apartment. Her mysterious neighbor is driving something up the wall. This story literally starts off with a bang!

No words are proper enough for this review when I’m laughing my ass off.

Wallbanger pushed all the rights buttons. And oh my, did it push. This story was hilarious, sweet, oddly romantic, and even more bizarre in a good way.

The story is told in Caroline’s pov. To sum her up:


Who can blame her sexual frustration when her sexy neighbor aka “Wallbanger” is driving her crazy?

Which eventually leads to a lot of this:


There are also a lot of this:


Ahh please, my Simon, wherever you are, sail across the ocean and fetch me from a wretched life without your thoughtfulness, sense of humor, sensuality, and every other bit of you. (My, do I sound like a chore?)

Overall: I enjoyed the first half of the book more the second half when I started to lose interest. Nonetheless, it was a fun and heart-banging read and I like the fact that this story nicely explored Caroline’s sexuality and Simon’s friendship-turned-love with the leading lady.

Beware: you will squeal like crazy and be sexually frustrated while reading this book.
