In this sequel to Wallbanger, fan favorites Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in Sausalito.

Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing—but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More like an epilogue On the positive side, I enjoy this author's witty dialogue and Simon/Caroline's relationship is peppy and fun. On the negative side, this book read more like an epilogue. Not much happened, and it seemed like kind of a gratuitous addition to the series. That said, I was entertained. I am still recommending this book/series, but I really preferred the Redhead series by this author as a far steamier, wittier and more entertaining trilogy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring The first book in the series was fairly entertaining. This one, however, was boring. Had to force myself to read it to the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent read! This was an excellent sequel to wallbanger! I absolutely love this series and can't wait for the next book to come out. Simon and Carolyn are such a fun couple and clive adds some flavor as well. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a light and funny read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright I found this book a quick easy read and it was enjoyable but it didnt really have a true story. There was no major event or plot and it just kind of goes through their lives. It goes nowhere and when it was over I was kind of shocked because I was still waiting for the story

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rusty Nailed Excellent, fun read! A big old 55!

Read from the Book

Rusty Nailed chapter one “Oh, God.” Thump “Oh, God.” Thump thump “Caroline, don’t say those things to me when I’m so far away.” Simon chuckled, his voice low. And still as thrilling as it ever was. “Silly Simon, I’m simply reacting to the banging on the other side of the wall.” “Who’s on the other side of the wall?” “The guy with the hammer. You should see it. It’s huge.” “I’m going to have to ask you not to talk about some other guy’s hammer.” “Then get home and wow me with yours.” I laughed, closing the door to my office to reduce the noise. It wouldn’t be my office much longer, though. I was moving up in the world—or at least down the hall. That was the cause of the banging: renovating my new space. Bigger office, corner office, thank you very much, right next to Jillian’s, my boss and owner of. Better view of the bay and almost twice the size of my old office, with a small anteroom for a possible future intern. I might one day have an intern. How was this my life? “I’ll be home tomorrow. Think you can keep your thoughts on my hammer until then?” he asked. I glanced at the calendar on my desk, Simon’s arrival home circled. “I’m gonna do my best, babe, but you should see how thick that tool belt is. No promises.” Simon groaned and I laughed harder. I loved torturing him across multiple time zones. “And don’t forget my present.” “Do I ever?” “No, you’re a thoughtful one, aren’t you?” “Don’t forget my present either,” he said, his voice going low again. “Pink nightie is read

From the Publisher

In this sequel to Wallbanger, fan favorites Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in Sausalito.

Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing—but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

Editorial Reviews

A funny, madcap, smexy romantic contemporary that had me reading straight through. Fast pacing and a smooth flowing storyline will keep you in stitches as Wallbanger and Nightie Girl begin the battle of the headboard. Filled with plenty of humor, sarcasm, engaging dialogue, and well developed characters-I didn’t stop laughing till the end.
