Review-Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

Book Blurb

The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she’s gaining an—um—intimate knowledge of her new neighbor’s nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed “dating hiatus,” and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly. . . .
In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight...

My Kobo had kept recommending Wallbanger, but I didn't like the idea of a guy who was banging a different woman every night.  To me that didn't sound very romantic.  Then a friend of mine insisted that I would love it so I took her advice and read it and I’m glad I did.
This book was so much fun!  It was sweet, charming, sexy, romantic and made me laugh out loud.  The book was not what I expected.  Simon was not an insensitive womanizer and Caroline wasn't a pathetic woman falling for a great set of abs. Okay, so Simon did have a great set of abs, but that’s not why she fell for him.
I really loved Caroline.  She was a smart, independent woman that was totally comfortable being on her own.  She adores Simon, but doesn't want to become part of his harem. 
Alice Clayton tells their story through Caroline’s odd sense of humor that keeps the reader laughing throughout the whole book.  The book also is rich with great secondary characters that have romances of their own which only serves to add to the fun.

I felt that the ending was too drawn out, but the book was still fabulous and I highly recommend it.
