Wallbanger (The Cocktail Series Book 1) by Alice Clayton

From the Back Cover:

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:

This was a wonderful, lighthearted and humorous contemporary romance. The writing is witty, fun, and it's an easy, quick, "beach-type" read. If you're looking for something light or a quick romance, I highly suggest it. The story was predictable and the characters weren't particularly memorable, but it was the main character's internal dialogue (and quite frankly, her descriptions) that had me laughing on numerous occasions. I'll definitely be checking out more of Alice Clayton's works -- especially as a fun read to take on a cruise or trip.

My Rating:
