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 favorite author of all time Jennifer L. Armentrout wanted to read this book. And mostly all the books she recommends are pretty awesome. Plus this book was in the best books of 2012 list in Amazon. Amazon!!! So I was all yaay! awesome cover... So I hve to read it.
So I went to google and typed wallbanger, I however forgot the author and there were two wallbanger books. I naturally went to the first one and it was Sable something and Whoa!!! It, meaning the blurb, was scary, it totally Fifty Shades style and I was like Why on Earth would Jennifer recommend this. And then even the cover was different. So I just went to the second wallbanger book and I loved the blurb. God it was one amazing blurb and let me tell you every letter and punctuation mark is sooo true. Like dead on true!
The book starts off with a thump and a moan. Poor Carolyn was trying to sleep in her new apartment when her picture frames fall on her from on top of her bed. Yup, you guessed it right ;), it was her neighbours doing. Haha, now you wanna read the book don't you. And the thumping goes on for a few days, however the moaning does not, instead there are some rather... unusual... is so not the word, more like freaking hilarious noises. I love love loved the book. One day Carolyn totally fed up with her annoying neighbour, goes to confront him in the middle of him doing the big DEED and she is clad in a baby pink nightie that plays a big role in the book mind you, and starts banging on Simon's door and enter Simon with a sheet wrapped so low on his body with a .... ( I can't say it I get sqeamish) and instant attraction for Carolyn anyway. And let's just say that the walls are two way and so Simon can hear Carolyn's late night dreams *cough cough*
And then throw in Simon and Carolyn's friends and we get a hot- hot tub and and yummy baked goodness that combines to give us the best book ever. Carolyn's friends are pretty funny and I mean LOL funny. There is a visitor from the past and is truly annoying bu in the end someone shows the visitor who's boss. And the real fun begins, actually the real fun began way before.
I can't wait for all you to to meet the three women in Simon's harem as Carolyn puts it, they are truly giggle worthy ( for those of you who have read this book, you will totally know what that means ;) )
The ending was pretty cute and honestly it wasn't like most Adult books, there was no big fight and reunite at the end, there was a fight but that was half way through the book, I think. I really enjoyed the texts between Simon and Carolyn and it was so much fun, they were witty, cute, smexy and all around awesome.
P.S. I never thought kitchen sex would be hot :)
P.P.S. I hope you guys like this book because it is definitely going in my top 12 or whatever.
Rating- 5 stars
