5+ Star’s for Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger
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…
Ms. Caroline Reynolds can’t get over how disgusted she is with her new next door neighbor – and the harem of women he has parading in and out of his apartment. Three to be specific – the giggler- the meower (is that even a word? – Yes she meoooow’s like a cat) and the one who get’s spanked. But in all honesty, I think Caroline has more issues with her lack of meowing – and spanking – and screaming, than she ever had with her sex crazed neighbor Simon.
It seems that Caroline has misplaced her “O” – you’ll be on a a first name basis with O when you get into the story – Ms. Reynolds has failed to have an orgasm in months – whether alone or with a partner – her O has mysteriously disappeared and she’s desperate to find it again!
Wallbanger is hilarious – it was one of the first reads in a LONG time that REALLY made me laugh; especially all the pop culture references, including My So Called Life – and Caroline’s spank bank fantasy of Jordan Catalano and her – down in the boiler room making out when she should be in her geometry review. *Swooooon*
I HAD to throw it in there – if you grew up in the 90’s Jordan was absolutely part of your spank bank 😉
Clayton has a really easy way of writing – almost like your having a gossipy conversation with a friend – I was leery to read it, even though it got such good reviews on Goodreads and Amazon – it just seemed a little to fluffy for me – but I was wrong. It is a bit fluffy, but once you get past it you are generally interested in the characters and what’s going to happen – if anything between them. The innuendo – and flirting is a lot of fun – because as she explains, Simon gives good “woo.”
Both characters have strong personalities and awesome senses of humor – and they both balance and bounce off one another quite well.
Without divulging too much – check it out – you won’t be disappointed!
“He was wooing me. And I was letting him woo. I wanted the woo. I deserved the woo. I needed the wow that would surely follow the woo, but for now, the woo? It was whoa.”
“Get your ass over here right now, you motherfucking scary movie pusher”
“I’m done with easy.”
“You should print that on cards.”
“Print this—why do you still have clothes on?”
His smirk reappeared and he said, “Sweet dreams”.
He thumped the wall one more time, winked, and went inside.
Huh. Sweet dreams and thin walls. Sweet dreams and thin walls…
Mother of pearl. He´d heard me……”
“Wrapped around each other but now clad in a pink nightie and a pair of sweatpants. To be clear, I wore the pink nightie.”
“She was giggling. She was a dirty, dirty giggler.”
