USA TODAY bestselling indie author Alice Clayton delights readers with the sexy, laugh-out-loud romance of Caroline and Simon in Wallbanger, the first book in the Cocktail series!
The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she's gaining an??um??intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy's athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly...

Some of the most cringe-worthy writing I've read this year. . . and I read a book called "Boss in the Bedsheets" (seriously tho, BitB was really sweet and actually well-written). I only finished this book so I could add it to my Goodreads tally :/ ( )

The overall story was ok. The pacing and world building however was sub par. First the pacing, it was dreadfully slow and painfully laborious sifting through chapters upon chapters of the inner workings of sweet Caroline and the people around her. I appreciate the effort into developing Caroline throughout the story but she was so boring as a main character. Even the side characters were boring. Can we talk about her Asian friend, Mimi. Here is an excerpt from the book describing Mimi's physical appearance " Mimi was different. She was so tiny and cute...Because she was so small,she had a tendency to draw types that wanted to " protect" ( )

Wallbanger
2.5 Stars

Caroline Reynolds loves everything about her new apartment except her oversexed neighbor, Simon Parker, whose "wallbanging" keep her up at night. But when Caroline finally confronts Simon about his extracurricular activities, sparks fly and flames crackle. Can Caroline and Simon get over their animosity to explore the chemistry between them?

A great premise with many of my favorite tropes. Unfortunately, the execution is only so-so. The characters are very one dimensional, and the heroine in particular comes across as shallow and superficial. This is especially problematic as the narrative is in the first person from her POV.

The secondary cast comprised of Caroline and Simon's mutual friends are quite simply interchangeable, in fact, they themselves switch partners, so it is virtually impossible to remember who is with whom, when and where...

Simon and Caroline do have good chemistry, but by the time they get over themselves long enough to do something about it, I lost interest.

Overall, a disappointing read given the hype. This book started out as fan fiction and it definitely shows. ( )

Cute, fluffy fun but there were a number of things that could have been cut without detracting from the story, I think. The text messages, for one. For another, the car scene with the multiple POV's. The whole story is told in first person, but the car scene decided to get all up in everyone's head. It wasn't even that funny and was a pretty clunky ploy. And the final scene, jeebus christ, the cat? Really? Unfortunately, that bit annoyed me enough that what would have been a fairly solid three stars got dropped to two.

The premise of this book was promising. I went in expecting a light and funny piece of smutty fluff and to all intents and purposes the plot could have delivered. But the writing, oh the writing. So bad. I've read better fan fiction than this. Some of it was the poorly executed first person narrative, but mostly it was the exaggerated dialogue and the awkwardness of the whole thing. Not to mention the fact that all that happened in this book could have been written pretty well using only third of the page count. And to top it all off, it wasn't even hot. And let's face it, if a book that revolves around the theme of sex and orgasms isn't hot, then there isn't a whole lot left. ( )
