Wallbanger by Alice Clayton Review

 A bestselling hot, hilarious eBook by USA TODAY indie author Alice Clayton, the freshest voice to hit publishing in years. “An instant classic…highly recommended!” (New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst).

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:
3.5/5 Stars
Usually I do not read Comedy, but after hearing all the praise on this book I had to give it a try.
I thought it was entertaining and I caught myself smiling a few times. The storyline was unique and the characters were great. I loved Caroline's personality and let's be honest Wallbanger is a total heart throb.
The romance was built off of friendship, nothing was rushed, and I can appreciate that.
Simon changes throughout the book from a man whore to a compassionate, caring man. When him and Caroline finally got together I loved the book. Before that though... I was bored.
The cat was suppose to be a funny attribute, but he annoyed me. Maybe it's because I am not a cat person... I don't know.
 The behavior was bizarre and unbelievable.
I enjoyed the friendships, but wished Simon was with Caroline earlier because I truly enjoyed their story and felt like I didn't get enough.
