Wallbanger (Cocktail, #1) by Alice Clayton

Wallbanger (Cocktail, #1)

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-im...

    Text messages between The Book and Blacky :So, what do you think about me? Well you weren't short at all :D Well yeah I'm pretty long... and thick... Just about average I'd say Pfttt you are average missy! Didn't you like all the humor? Yeah it was good I guess, the scene with Dr. Ross was the best :D Ohhhh yes, makes me think of dirty things, that man. I wish I had my O back :( Yes, I wish it too! Your O brought more frustration to me than it d...

    What is with these 'OMG! Super-Hot! Fun!' books that become all the rage here on GR lately? And they are all the same.A Mary Sue heroine with a perfect job and perfect friends who looks perfect but for some reason is alone and sexually frustrated. And she's all kinds of batshit about her perceptions of men or sex or men AND sex. Thus, the heroine of what exactly? Then the hero. Well he's of course otherworldly gorgeous and fit, although he puts a...

    Reread. I was worried that this wouldn’t be as great as the first time I read it. I was wrong, thank god. It was so good. So fuckin’ good. There were numerous times I started to tear up because my emotions were going haywire. I’m just so in love with this book!——————————————Well, hello there, my new favourite. Come to mama!I judged this book by the title. And I feel like an absolute fool now, because fuck me, I l...

    “Kittens,lay back.You are about to get Wallbanged.” I was an addict craving her dose.I was lost in a dull world full of mundane stuff for so long I almost became a mundane myself.After a month of abstinence from reading and severe book deprivation,after long days and bookless nights,the time came to return where I belong.And I had to celebrate!I wanted something light.I wanted saucy and funny and Wallbanger promised to deliver them all.And o...

    Review posted at: Swept Away By Romance 3 1/2 to 4 starsThere's no doubt Wallbanger is a fun, delightful, moderately sexy, feel-good read that bordered on the ANNOYING. There were times I felt like wallbanging my head against the wall with the amount of unresolved sexual tension this poor couple was put through. Geez! This particular aspect of the story became so frustrating. I enjoyed getting to know the two main characters, Simon and Caroline....

    So disappointed! This book went from "O.M.G!" to a big fat "D.N.F." at 75% I really (and I mean REALLY!) enjoyed the opening of this book, and was looking forward to a great read. But in the end, I gave it too much of my time and finally just had to call it quits.Oh, it started off so funny and original. The 'Wallbanger' and 'Cock blocker' jokes were cute. Simon was such a mystery, and Caroline was a person I would love to hang with if she was a ...

    ETA: downgraded to 3 stars. September 20, 2015. "Hello O! Nice to see you again. With his lips he brought me one." 3.5 stars. I mean it. And I want half stars!Once upon a time there was a missing O. The pressure of an O long denied, waiting patiently—and sometimes impatiently—for her release. Lucky you, because you found The Wallbanger.Simon: How’s the pressure now?Caroline: Do you want me to hurt you? Shut it! *a look of dreamy bliss on h...

WALLBANGER by Alice Clayton is aptly named, because when I finished this book, I wanted to throw it at the wall, it was so bad.I wanted to read this book because I love romance novels and people were saying that it was th...

    Just what I needed!During a pretty mad point in my year end, Alice Clayton put the smile on my face I so needed. I loved Caroline, although she was a little crackers, but I've got to cut the girl some slack because if I'd have been lacking in the area in which she was oh so lacking, then I guess I would be a bit of a loose canon too. Enter Simon. The flirting, sexual tension and innuendos that were batting between these two almost me had me wishi...

    freaking hilarious and hot read!

    This book is effin' hilarious...... I was laughing non-stop for sure....And Harriet, my mate only made it double exciting When I picked up the first page, I was And we move, 50% dear me, By 85% I was equally frustrated with her, chasing her Big O, and Simon is ain't helping at all! Damn, UST is way too much! Finally, I was screaming with at happiness at 92% and in love! What I can say more, I really really had fun with Simon, Caroline, Clive (...

    I realize that I'm probably in the minority here but while I found the story funny at times, I just didn't find it fulfilling. Caroline has a very unique way of thinking and comes across bit quirky which I like :) I really respected how Simon approached the development of this new relationship which made him all the more likeable as he could have blown our expectations out of the planet with how entangled his web was. Caroline and Simon felt a pr...

    Hilarious and sexy! One of my favourites.

    “Fucking Wallbanger,” I hissed, frozed on the spot.His grin slid off as well as he played place-the-face for a moment. “Fucking Pink Nightie Girl.” Story When I was a little younger, I sometimes had a crush on a boy I didn’t even know. Just handsome boys I saw and thought I really liked. When I thought about them I had all the stupid-teenage fantasies. In these fantasies everything was perfect - he was nice, funny, cooking was no proble...

    DNF at 70%.Warning: as the majority of the book is dealing with heroine's obsession with sex - or its absence to be exact - my review inevitably falls into R rating. So if you are under 18 stop reading right here, or your mom will make you stand in the corner and will not give you any sweets.Caroline Reynolds led an exciting life of a single woman rapidly approaching her middle age: she was working hard finding fulfillment in her work, often went...

    4 Simon Baker-The Mentalist, Flirty, Banter, Baked Goods Stars**** Spoiler FreeDear Ms. Clayton,I am writing to you as I know you have a close personal relationship with Simon, Caroline and their posse. I wanted to first congratulate you on excellent taste. You telling us about these people in the way that you did, just brightened up my day. It was such a change to see grown up, evolved professionals behave as friends, looking out for one anothe...
  • Shurrn
    Wallbanger is the literary equivalent of a long night giggling with your best friend over cocktails & pints of ice-cream… It just makes you feel good…Nights like that might not be life altering… but they'll stick with you all the same. A fond memory you can draw on when you're having a rough day. This book will affect you in a similar way. We all know the premise... Caroline moves into a new condo and is repeatedly woken up by her neighbor'...
  • Jilly
    I had a good time reading this with my friends at the abtastic ab-loving geishas, but I did find it a little juvenile and shallow. Funny - but juvenile and shallow.The best part of the book was Clive the Cat. Clyde falls in love with a girl who meows, attacks his owner's new boyfriend's head, and even flips off Caroline. "Shut it, Clive," I hissed. A paw came out through the crack and I swear he flipped me off... I can honestly say that this is t...

    And the Wallbanger book is born.The Abtastic Ab Loving GeishasAnd the date was set & the Wallbanger enthusiasts started reading.2-3 days after.F* no. This is not a 5 star read.Oh boy. *mouths* Someone's not happy.Ok. To explain. It started out good. Really good, actually.It was hilarious and the story held my interest....at first.Heck, who wouldn't be addicted to you when you can squeeze orgasm out of a woman's vagina like I do with my juicing or...

    I dunno. It was cute up until they went to Spain. After that, I just kind of lost interest......To be fair though, it was overall better than I was expecting.HOWEVER!I need to mention this because I'M FUCKING SICK OF EVERY MALE LEAD IN EROTICAS HAVING 200 PACK ABS!THIS GUY IS LITERALLY A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR A LIVING AND THERE IS ZERO MENTION OF HIM GOING TO THE GYM ON A REGULAR BASIS.

    Laugh-out-loud, snort-tea-through-your-nose, stupid-grin-on-your-face funny!I found that this took a little while to get going. At about the 25% mark, it was dragging and I was thinking to myself 'Ok, so? Come on, get to the point.' And then it did!And it was hilariously funny, brilliantly witty, yet adorably romantic and incredibly sexy! Yep, all of those things rolled into one book. Wrapped around each other but now clad in a pink nightie and ...
  • Rosalinda *KRASNORADA*
    3.5 stars Ok, let's keep this short and sweet...This book was OKAY but just okay, nothing exciting. I was expecting much more but well, I guess I am in a book funk at the moment.Simon and Caroline live in the same building. They meet each other because Simon is a Wall Banger. Yes, he f@cks different chicks every night and Caroline and her sweet and EVIL cat Clive can't sleep. So well, you're probably getting the picture... One night she knocks on...
  • Wendy Darling
    This should probably be a 2 star rating because it wasn't awful, but I really just didn't like it at all. The sex wasn't spectacular, and I didn't find this as funny or cute or hot as everyone else seems to. Oh, well.

    !!!Hump Alert!!!Simon was just *swoon* Hot, loving, hot, sexy, smoking hot, sweet, caring and totally adorable! Boy, did he BANG with wall out of wallbanging!
