I typically don't let minor errors in a book stop me from enjoying it. But for some reason, this one, to use the same kind of trite phrasings the people in this book were wont to say, 'had me at hello'. Caroline moves into a new apartment and the first few nights there wakes up because her next door neighbor is having massive amounts of sex; their beds share a very thin wall apparently. However, the next few days Caroline is living at her peephole so she can get a glimpse of her neighbor....across the hall. She tries to get a glimpse of him as he's saying goodnight to the women he's given gargantuan amounts of pleasure too. (B/c don't they all?) And throughout the book, she hears knocks on his door and sees people across the hall at his door (all women of course). I haven't lived in an apartment in a long time, but there is no way someone who lives across the hall from you is also going to share your bedroom wall.
As for the people in this book, the wit and fun the writer tries to have them exude is exhausting. And eyerolling. They love to party and go out and cook and go on vacation together and get drunk and tease and have sex...and then these uber cool people say things like "Now wait just a minute, buster!" Didn't that saying retire in the 70s? I don't know of any single, modern woman who'd say something like that, and unfortunately the book is riddled with sayings my mother or grandmother might have said.
And then of course, we can't leave out the O. A woman who talks about her orgasms in a single letter reference, and then we learn she also talks to her orgasms. Eventually she even sees her O as a red-haired lady in some deep pool trying to escape. I wanted to tell Caroline that the reason she probably isn't having an orgasm is because she's turned it into the most ridiculous thing ever. Go see a shrink or your Gyno or something. Just stop talking to your vagina for gods sake.
Simon is a lot better written, at least he acts like a guy-manwhore that he's supposed to be. At least he did for the first part of the book. I'm not really sure why he was interested in Caroline other than the obvious, not sure where the whole love thing came in, but that's probably because this book and I just didn't mesh.
Wish I could get my money back.
Oh the flirty banter in this book is AMAZE-BALLS! Okay, I realize that I've used an exclamation point at the end of nearly every sentence, but they are to show you how great the book is!!!
I wish I could think of something to criticize about this book, but I can't. If anything, I'd criticize that it took them way to long to finally have sex, but then once they did, we are rewarded with like three solid chapters of love making, so I have to take that criticism back, as the wait turns out to be worth it ;)
I think some would label this as a enemies-to-lovers story. And it does start out that way, but the character progression is so FLAWLESS, the 'enemy' part doesn't last too long. I hate it when the 'enemy' part is drawn out and dragged on through an entire book and not given up until the very end.
The topics Ms. Clayton dealt with in romantic relationships in this book were: first impressions/misconceptions, snap judgments, assumptions, not communicating, and accepting feelings verses denying them. And it all rolled out so flawlessly! I know, I used that word already, but that's what this book is! JUST READ IT. If you love romantic comedies, then you won't be disappointed!
Everyone should read this book. I don't say that very often even on five star books. But when a book makes me laugh out loud all the way through the book I just have to share and want everyone to enjoy it l
ike I have. Books that make me laugh or cry hit the bullseye.
Isn't that what makes reading a book all about; to escape from the realities in our own lives and slip into something delightful and different for just a while.?
I trudge through book after book just looking for a diamond. This is a definite diamond. Light hearted, funny and very well written.
Hats off to you Alice Clayton for superb workmanship on this book. Thanks for the laughs, romance, love and work you pulled together in one book! Thank you for not breaking this up into a series of books that one has to wait patiently for the next installment. I do like series too, however this book would have lost it's momentum had you done that.
I give no spoilers in my reviews SORRY folks. Just read and enjoy.
That said, Caroline and Simon were a hoot. She draws conclusions about him based on a very limited understanding of his actions (to be honest, I kinda did, too. I mean, the guys seems like a pretty big manwhore from the slice of his life we first glimpse. BUT...he surprised me.) and he sees her as his own personal, err, sexual shenanigan blocker. Which is true, is some regards.
You know how it is...a guy meets a girl he can't get out of his head and suddenly all the others in his harem aren't doing it for him anymore. In the same vein, Simon's vigorous late-night shenanigans give Caroline some VIVID material for her spank bank.
Simon surprised me, Caroline's situation was cringe-worthy (and by that I mean both her inability to complete and having to listen to her neighbor giving it to someone REPEATEDLY), and the story was fun. Here's to more wallbanging in the future!
