Caroline is an up and coming interior designer. She’s single; not exactly what you’d call happily, but not exactly looking for love either. She, along with her cat Clive, has just moved into a new apartment in San Francisco that she is subletting from her boss, Jillian. The first night in her digs and Caroline makes the acquaintance of her next door neighbor, via the banging of the headboard on her wall, as well as the undeniable sounds of the throes of ecstasy…which happen to change each night. There’s the Russian, the giggler, and Purina, the one who meows…By the third night, she is finally fed up; she pounds on her neighbor’s door to put an end to it. The handsome man answers the door, wrapped only in a sheet, is visibly still aroused and amused by the irate woman in the pink nightie standing on his doorstep.
Simon is a professional photographer and travels around the world. When he is home, he has “arrangements” with three different women. He’s not your average womanizer, but he’s not exactly looking for a relationship, either. His job doesn’t afford him the time for the picket fence and attention that the traditional relationship requires. When “pink nightie girl” shows up on his doorstep complaining about the noise, he’s immediately interested in learning more about Caroline.
Neither Simon nor Caroline are looking for or expecting a relationship when circumstances keep throwing the two of them together. Caroline is afraid to pursue sex with anyone after her last relationship ended with her losing her “O” (yes, the BIG O) via a boyfriend who thought sex akin to jackhammering. Simon is afraid to have his heart broken, or to break Caroline’s heart. Ms. Clayton is a master of sexual tension and Simon and Caroline’s relationship is full of it! The rising heat between the two is palpable and when it finally explodes, the results are scorching.
Much like Ms. Clayton’s other works, namely the Redhead series, Wallbanger is hilarious. Not only does she have a knack for witty banter and dialog between characters, but the comedic use of Clive the cat is off the charts funny. Ms. Clayton has a way of taking the inane embarrassing things that happen to us in our own relationships and making them relatable and hilarious. Yes, Simon is hot, hung, and loaded, but he’s human, and suffers from the same issues at times as the rest of us. Wallbanger had me engrossed from page one, making it an easy five star read. I can’t wait for the next installment of the series, Rusty Nailed, which will be out in June!
And fortunately, Wallbanger isn't one of them.
I'll admit that I was skeptical when I found this while searching for a good romantic comedy to read and this one kept popping up on the lists. I never seem to like what everyone else thinks is amazing and the title? Come on. That's gotta be one of the cheesiest titles for a romance novel ever. No, really. It's pretty cheesy.
But I'm glad I went for it.
The good: the characters are wonderful- they're full characters with life in them and it didn't hurt that I actually liked them, really liked them, the male lead is hot and not like bedroom hot though I imagined him as good, but human hot, touchable hot, the real hot, not romance novel hot, there's a good plot, the writing is great- funny, witty and real, plenty of tension, no useless manufactured wrench thrown in to create conflict- oh there's conflict, but for once it didn't read like a plot device, you can actually cheer for this couple and I did! I couldn't wait for them to finally get together and while there's definitely the romance formula going on it didn't read like every other toolbar novel, not once did I think yeah this or that is coming, I genuinely got lost in the story and forgot about the procedure- this is huge when you read a lot of one genre. The ending was absolutely freakin wonderful. Honestly? For the last three pages alone everyone should read it. I could go on with the good. It's really that well done, but mostly it's just the kind of story that works for me. Funny, sexy, real and has a great ending.
The bad: There is only one thing that keeps me from giving this five stars (ok two things, but the second one actually wouldn't have stopped me from giving five stars, but worth noting if I'm going to leave a review) First off, it took was way too long to get to the payoff. It's a good and bad thing. The good is that the reason it took so long was because I wanted then together. The bad is that it took so long to actually get there that I was well and truly frustrated and thought about putting the story down. Don't get me wrong, the story while I waited was excellent, I just wish there was a better balance. The second thing is there are a couple editing issues. No big deal, but I seem to be reading a lot of novels with these easy editing issues lately and the more you see the more you notice. It doesn't take one bit from the story, but it is momentarily distracting.
In the end, all I can say is that this is a must read if you're looking for a good romantic comedy.
If you enjoy your love stories with a strongheaded beautiful heroine and a bad boy neighbor with a big heart and playful humour, you'll love this one.
It's a standalone, and I can't wait to read the next one.
