Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

Book description from

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…


5 out of 5 stars

My review:

There were so many things I loved about this book.

  • I loved Caroline. She was funny, witty and insecure all at the same time, which made her hugely likable.
  • Simon was a great character. I am madly in love with him.
  • The Mimi/Ryan/Sophia/Neil subplot was well written and believable.
The way Caroline and Simon’s friendship developed was funny and believable. Their banter, especially at the beginning of their friendship, was hilarious.  To be honest, their banter throughout this entire book was hilarious, between all the characters.
This book is laugh out loud funny. I had tears in my eyes at so many parts. I loved this book and seriously hope there is a sequel.
Love, love, love and highly recommend.
