Book Description

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Silly and same-y 7 Oct. 2013
By shelf
Format:Kindle Edition
Clearly I'm on my own here judging by the rave reviews but I don't see what the fuss is about - there is nothing special about this book, nothing that sets it apart from any other chick-lit book currently on the market. So where does the appeal lie? In the characters and their chemistry? Er, no. Not by a long shot. In the secondary characters, then? The heroine's friends are pointless and you've seen and read about them before on Sex and the City (which did it better) and any other chick-lit book out there. We see the heroine meeting up every other page with the gals for breakfast sessions where they indulge in men related chit-chat and the like. Contrived.

Ok, so maybe the selling point is the heroine herself? But no, because her career/work-like and boss are SO boring. She just came across as very unrelatable to me especially when the hero, an international photographer, invites her overseas and she says yes just like that.

Ok, I'll grant that this book has a few amusing moments but that wasn't enough to set this book apart, make it a great read.

The plot is wearying. I love chick-lits, I love romance. I know that predictable is the main ingredient but just so long as the writing is good and the main characters even better, I'm happy. But this was snooze-worthy and so unoriginal. The H and h are neighbours so we have many scenes with them having dinner together or running into one another as they come and go. The most contrived part of all, though, is when the heroine's friends and the hero's friends all go up to a holiday house where there's hot-tubbing and truth or dare and drinking. It was just way too cliched.

So the heroine is bland, maybe there's hope with the hero?

3.0 out of 5 stars Effort needed to finish it 13 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was won over by this book with the favourable feedback but sadly I am not team Wallbanger.

It started of ok with me intrigued to read where the story will go but when half way though the book the excitement just wears off it just becoming tiring and boring...... The flirting between the main leads just seemed to o on forever before they moved into 2nd gear. I did like the humour the book offered and they lively cat named Clive but after reading some amazing books this just did not compare plus the ending was dull as dish water.

I recommend : Gabriel's inferno, The MIghty Storm, Edge of never, The proposition, THis Man, Perfect Game, Almost, Unsticky and The Charade

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious - must read! 1 Oct. 2014
By Jo-Anne
Format:Kindle Edition
Caroline likes living in her new apartment in San Francisco. She is renting it from her great boss and good friend, Jillian. Caroline decides to take a break from dating and just focus on her interior designing career and her friendships with Sophia and Mimi.

She started to have second thoughts about how great her apartment was on her first night there when her next door neighbor's headboard is banging against her bedroom wall. She becomes exhausted when night after night she had to listen to her neighbor's wall banging and all the sounds the women are making - like spankings, meowing, screaming and giggling. She tells Sophia, Mimi, and Jillian about the adventures of her neighbor she calls Wallbanger that is the reason she can't sleep, and they think it's hilarious. Finally Caroline can't take it any more so she pounds on her neighbor's door to yell at him about his incessant wall banging. This was another funny scene because Caroline didn't remember she was in her sexy pink nightie when she ran next door to confront him. When he just winks at her she gets even more angry.

Once Caroline see's how sexy Simon is she can't get him out of her mind. She starts fantasizing about him, which makes her angry because she doesn't want to be added to what she thinks of as his harem of girls. Caroline and Simon's lives quickly become intersected as well as that of their close friends. In order to be able to work together they decide to call a truce and try to become friends.

I LOVED this book! It was hysterical! Caroline and Simon started off as enemies but liked each other once they got to know each other. I liked the way they began to flirt and tease even though Caroline fought it. She wanted to dislike Wallbanger but just couldn't.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was ok but lacked the steaminess I expected. 28 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first in Alice Clayton’s The Cocktail Series and it’s something that I’ve been looking forward to reading for quite a while. I started this as part of the #SexMeUpReadathon that the girls over at Gosling Girls Book Tours were running between the 21st and 25th of July.

The story is all about main character Caroline Reynolds. Caroline has just moved into her new apartment in San Francisco with her cat Clive. She’s got a great job, this brand new apartment, she’s not had successful sex for a while and what is NOT the perfect remedy? The sex god next door.

I was really looking forward to reading this hoping that I would like it and I can’t lie I was a teensy bit disappointed!

At first I liked Caroline’s character. She was funny and interesting and I liked the way that she engaged with you as a reader through the almost interactive narrative. I found some of her quirky thoughts and names for her “hoohah” funny and I thought that her character had a little extra pep, similar to the main character in a chick-lit novel.

The story was predictable insofar as the next door neighbour – so aptly nicknamed “Wallbanger” – was indeed a wallbanger. I thought that this was a fun introduction to the other main character in the story – Simon Parker. I enjoyed that they had a bit of a love/hate relationship going and when it turned out that it was a small world after all their relationship started to take on a new meaning. I liked the progression from friends to more although I expected it to be faster and with more chemistry than what I felt there was.

I read through the story quite quickly but felt more like I was just trying to finish it more than I was hooked. I think it was a more heavy mix of silliness than steaminess and that wasn’t what I was hoping for so it let the book down a bit for me. The writing was good throughout and the story had enough of a mix of predictability and the unknown to keep you interested.
