Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O.
Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and–was that a meow?–punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O.
Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick…
A wild romance full of innuendos, baked goods and a cat name Clive. It’s a hilarious, world-wind love story with that touch super sweet to boot. This books reminds me why I love contemporary romances, it just brings out the hilarious fun.
Caroline is doing pretty well, awesome job, new apartment, Kitchen Aid stand, only problem is her ‘O’ seems to taken vacation. To rub salt into the wound, her new neighbour Simon, seems to have a fantastic relationship with his O. To bring the fun, we have an awkward encounter that leads to more awkward encounters, a building of good friendship and world-wind romance.
Caroline and Simon have great chemistry. The two of them just crack me up, especially Simon. Why, you ask? Because he’s just as much of a weirdo as Caroline, despite the beginning making him sound very cool and suave (interesting, if even slightly odd heroes are always better and more swoon worthy than your typical perfect hero, I always think haha). Caroline and feisty and straight forward with a hilarious sense of self. The conversations and texts between them are always fun and flirty, filled with banters, sexual tension and just plain funny one-liners, (and a few cute heart-warming moments too).
Wallbanger is a playful, heart-warming, and fluffy read, great especially for when you want a hilarious pick-me-uper. This book had me giggling, snickering, awww-ing and crackling with laughter. It has all the makings of an awesome romantic comedy.
P.S. We can’t forget about Clive (the cat), who’s a hoot and half on his own. Don’t worry Clive, you’ll find your perfect lady.
