Editorial Reviews

Review

“We want to bask in this afterglow: giddy, blushing, and utterly in love with this book”. (Christina Lauren, NYT/USA Today & International Bestselling authors of The Beautiful Bastard Series, on RUSTY NAILED)

Wallbanger is an instant classic, with plenty of laugh out loud moments and riveting characters-highly recommended.” (NYT and USA Today best-selling author Jennifer Probst)

“Fun and frothy, with a bawdy undercurrent and a hero guaranteed to make your knees wobbly, WALLBANGER will keep you up all night. In a good way. Hilarious, romantic, and compulsively readable, WALLBANGER delivers the perfect blend of sex, romance, and baked goods.” (Ruthie Knox, best-selling author of About Last Night)

Caroline Reynolds. Finally a woman who knows her way around a man and a KitchenAid Mixer. She had us at zucchini bread! (Curvy Girl Guide on Wallbanger)

A funny, madcap, smexy romantic contemporary that had me reading straight through. Fast pacing and a smooth flowing storyline will keep you in stitches as Wallbanger and Nightie Girl begin the battle of the headboard. Filled with plenty of humor, sarcasm, engaging dialogue, and well developed characters-I didn’t stop laughing till the end. (Smexy Books on Wallbanger)

Screwdrivered introduces us to a whole new cast of characters. Yes, Vivian was introduced in Rusty Nailed, but it was a brief, minimal introduction. Screwdrivered takes that little taste and makes it a full blown buffet. Bad boys? Good guys? Mixed emotions? This story has it all.

Viv Franklin inherits an old house from an eccentric aunt she hasn’t see or heard from in years (and didn’t even know was dead). An impulsive move across the country puts Viv smack dab in the middle of one of the romance novels she secretly loves.

Viv was such a study in contrasts. She is a great mix with a hard, strong exterior and a soft, romantic heart. Having five older brothers, she is used to standing up for herself, wrestling for herself, and working hard for what she wants. She put aside her love of art to follow in the family tradition of working with computers, though she made her own mark by developing her own software rather than joining the family business like her brothers. I loved her independent nature, and her adventurous streak that allowed her to travel across the country on a whim, thus sparking the whole story.

(quote)Sometimes falling in love just means turning around and seeing what’s right in front of you.

When she arrives at Seaside House, once she is able to look past the piles of random clutter and junk her aunt had amassed, she is dumbstruck by the hulking cowboy who visits daily to tend to the horses and chickens.

Hank is all man, walks around the barn shirtless from the time he steps out of his truck to the time he finishes caring for the animals. It is especially humorous to watch the otherwise confident Viv become tongue-tied each time she is in close proximity to him.

Nicole turned the page with abated breath. Anticipation coursing through her veins and her heart racing with just the thought of what was to come. Would she choose the raunchy cowboy with glistening abs? Or will the debonair librarian come in and sweep her off her feet with intellectual foreplay? Wait, this isn't my romance novel. Sadly, I don’t have a cowboy or a hot librarian. That is all for Viv, or Vivian, as Clark likes to call her.

Screwdrivered is just the newest addition to the Cocktail series by the lovely Alice Clayton. In it we meet Viv Franklin (or again if you've read Rusty Nailed), a high school friend of our resident Wallbanger Simon. Viv is a spitfire with a not-so-secret romance novel fetish. Just when she is feeling the itch for a new adventure in her life, she suddenly learns that she has inherited a house and land across country from a very distant relative. I mean, come on, don’t we all wish this would happen?

After making the decision to pack up and head to Mendocino, California, things start to become her real life romance novel. Speaking of novels, some of the titles in this book are to die for! The Wolf of Lust Street? That is just genius! Even though Viv was all for the smut like some of us obviously are, she seemed a bit cynical at first. Once she learned that there was a cowboy in the equation for this new house, she had a one track mind and that track included her and Fabio on a bed of hay.

I loved how open Viv was. Even when she saw that the house wasn't exactly has she remembered; i.e basically a house that could be on an episodes of hoarders minus the cats, she went with it. What she didn't go with was Clark, the librarian. Oh, but he was delicious with his knowledge and tweed jackets. I loved the contrast between him and cowboy Hank.

I had really high hopes for this book and some things were good but there was a lot I didn't like. The premise was good - 1 star for that. I loved the setting - it was so descriptive I felt like I could smell the salt air so another star for that.
I really disliked Vivian! She came across as incredibly self-centered, superficial and dense. I kept thinking how ironic it was that a college graduate who had traveled the world was so dumb and uninformed. I think her stupidity came from her being so self-centered - she only had knowledge about the things she was interested in. Things like why someone would want to preserve an historic home and why you want to be kind to all animals were non-issues to her because she didn't feel they were important. I got incredibly tired of her pretty quickly!
I liked Clark in the beginning but after he continuously let Vivian "tease" him (actually make fun of him!) I got tired of him as well. He was pretty gutless - how was Vivian supposed to know he was interested in her, by osmosis??!
I'm surprised I finished this book at all - kudos to me!!! ; )

What a wonderful story. Loved, loved, LOVED this!

Screwdrivered was just so entertaining, flirtatious, and playful and had me laughing out loud. Viv is an amazing character. Strong, independent, and totally sassy. I wanted to be her friend and I instantly had a girl crush on this woman. Loved her. Her internal thoughts of romance, the stories she thought in her head, and how they intertwined into her real life were fantastic. I thought it was unique and engaging, it was so exciting to read.

And her leading man? The cowboy versus the librarian? I don't even know how to write this without spoiling it but I thought Viv's adventure was perfect. She was in the middle of a real life romance novel and didn't even realize it. I just wanted to shake Viv's shoulders and tell her to open her eyes and see the awesome guy that was right in front of her. Loved the bickering and bantering, and the simmering heat that was right below the surface. When she finally gets it, my heart burst and I was cheering for them. The leading man she picked was oh so perfect and sweet and I loved him so. They had such electric sexual tension throughout. The looks, the longing, the chemistry. All there. Aw yeah! This book just made me happy-happy-happy and I was smiling and laughing throughout.

There was just the best build to this story. I absorbed all the details, it was fast paced and highly entertaining. Very light on the drama but it didn't need it. I was just so caught up in everything and enjoyed it way too much. I could not put it down! I just loved watching it all unfold and I completely fell in love with Viv and her main man. And when they finally get together? Hot, steamy, and passionate! Aw yeah!
