Ebook Review “Wallbanger (Cocktail Series),” Alice Clayton
In “Wallbanger,” we meet Caroline – poor Caroline, who has sadly lost her O. And how does one lose their O? Terrible sex, of course. Poor Caroline. Girl, I feel your pain.
Anyway, Caroline moves into a fabulous apartment owned by her boss. All is well until nightfall. You see, the neighbor next door has a rather interesting sex life. And has such <ahem> prowess that Caroline can hear his bed banging against the wall (knocking down a picture off the wall at one point) as he spends time with his ladies.
But one night, this becomes too much and Caroline stalks to his door to confront him. Except she’s wearing a pink nightie and when he opens the door he’s wearing a sheet that leaves little to the imagination.
Caroline and the Wallbanger (real name Simon) meet again at Caroline’s boss’ party….and not surprisingly, they have chemistry. But, due to Simon’s committed-ish relationship with three women (yes, three, but not in one sitting), Caroline decides that they should only be friends.
…But, Simon has some serious sex appeal (obviously, this is a romance novel after all) and as Caroline gets to know him, she discovers that he’s got a great taste in music, is funny, interesting, and can cook the best meatballs ever. (Side note: Men, cooking is sexy. Very sexy. Extremely sexy if the food is edible…and not mac & cheese.)
Can Caroline take the next step with him…and can Simon be the man to bring back her missing O?
So, first of all – this book is written in the first person. Ages ago, I refused to read any romance novel written in the first person. But I’m so glad I’ve since reversed my decision. “Wallbanger” is hilarious and fun – and filled with the witty hero/heroine banter that I love so much. Alice Clayton’s style in this novel (this is the first of hers that I’ve read) is light, easy, and so fast to read.
Five out of five stars for “Wallbanger.” :)
