Review of Wallbanger by Alice Clayton - 5 stars!

Happy Wednesday!

Time to a review of one of the funniest books I have read! When I purchased Wallbanger by Alice Clayton, I had no idea what a pleasurable trip that would be! Enjoy the review!

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…

In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.

My review:

It is definitely going to be one of my favorite books in 2013! I giggled and laughed and genuinely enjoyed the story which is well-written, funny and quite original contemporary romance. I loved everything about the book - the plot, the characters, the writing style!


Caroline is renting apartment from her employer and friend. Apartment is roomy, is situated in a perfect location. There is just one big problem Caroline has with it - her bedroom wall. Not the wall, but more specifically what is going on behind the other side of the wall. Every night Caroline is waken by hot sex and wallbanging on the other side. Her neighbour gets women meowing like cats, giggling like crazy or enjoying the spanking during the sex - and Caroline has to hear it. It makes it hard for Caroline because she does not get any sleep and because hot sex is not something she has experienced for a while.

One night she just gets enough and storms out of her apartment to tell the neighbour what she thinks about the wallbanging. She is frustrated, angry... just about the moment she finally meets her neighbour Simon, the man behind the wallbanging.

They have heated argument during the night and they say a whole lot of ugly things to each other. The situation get even more comic, when they meet on a party and find out, that they have a lot of friends in common. They agree for the truce, which is quite hard to keep. There is a visible attraction between them, but they decide to stay friends because Caroline wants a marriage, family and the whole nine extra miles and Simon does not want to be tied and he likes his freedom. But as known, things do not turn always out as intended and friendship has a tendency to grow into something else.

The dialogue was absolutely awesome! It was funny and quirky and made sure, that you got a whole lot of good and warm-hearted laughs!


The whole cast of characters was wonderful! Both main characters and the supportive ones created a one perfect ensemble. It was all very well balanced by the author.

I loved Caroline. She had such an enjoyable spark! She was lovable and easy to relate to. Simon was another huge favorite of mine. But what I loved mostly was the dynamics between them, the cat and mouse kind of play until their feelings grew stronger. There was a lot of funny banter going on between them and as mentioned earlier, the dialogue was brilliant!


Wallbanger by Alice Clayton was truly funny contemporary romance which I would highly recommend to anyone who loves a good romance and good laugh!

5 Flowers!
5 stars!

Happy reading!
