The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she’s gaining an 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…
In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight…
5 / 5 Stars
Oh my goodness. How to describe this delightful book? Hilarious is the first word that comes to mind. Sexy is the second. Add in a little bit of sweet and that basically sums up the entire book. It was perfect.
When independent Caroline moved into her new apartment, she never imagined she was going to be awoken in the middle of every night. Her new neighbor, Simon, has all sorts of extracurricular activities going on in the wee hours. Unluckily for Caroline, the walls are paper-thin. She’s stuck not only listening to Simon’s sexual escapades with different women, but feeling them when his bed slams against her wall. It’s driving her crazy! She just wants to sleep and ignore the fact that it’s been forever since she had a big “O” of her own.
When Caroline can’t stand it anymore, she confronts Simon. What starts out as a hatred between the two quickly turns into a friendship–a friendship with a ton of sexual sparks. As hard as they try to keep their relationship in the friend zone, they can’t deny their attraction to each other.
Wallbanger was filled with hilarious sexual innuendos, just as funny situations and cool characters. It made me laugh so many times. I would highly suggest it if you’re looking for a contemporary New Adult novel to make you laugh.
