USA TODAY bestselling indie author Alice Clayton delights readers with the sexy, laugh-out-loud romance of Caroline and Simon in Wallbanger, the first book in the Cocktail series!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny & Cute Cute romantic comedy. Loved the cat. The texting sections were fun too. It did drag a little though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Summer Read I had been standing by the cash waiting to purchase my summer reading when this book caught my eye. Picked it up a few times then put it back. Catchy title see, but not my usual style. When it came time to ring my purchase through, I grabbed it and tossed it onto the pile on a whim. A decision I did not regret! By the end of chapter 2, I'd fallen in love with the characters and funny dialogue. So much so that by chapter 7, I set out to purchase the entire series. It was the perfect book(s) to bring on vacation. Best read I've picked up so far this season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hilarious, must read! I totally did not expect this book to be a great as it was. Simon and Carolyn are hilarious together, and lest we forget Clive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing an O, but nothing else. I loved this book. Loved, loved, loved. I really did not think this book would be as good as it was. This story, the relationship that develops, is so easy to relate to. The tingly, the goosebumps, the flutters. All of it. Include a missing O and a hot neighbor whose sex life is literally hitting you in the head, and I think you've got a winner. The banter between Simon/Caroline is so perfect. I laughed at almost every page. The four-way relationship between their friends really sets the whole development of Simon-Caroline's romance into play. It was sweet, it was innocent, it was naughty. I loved every minute of it. Clive really just topped the whole thing off for me. Honestly, I hope you buy this book. If the review isn't enough on it's own, the novel has been turned into a series. God bless America.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice start When I bought this book I had a few expectations...I loved the beginning, but the story left me hanging toward the middle through the end. I wished the fun side of the beginning would have lasted longer. I liked this book, but I can't say I enjoyed it as much as I thought I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wallbanger? More like page turner! What a great and easy read!! I couldn't put it down, I loved it. One of those books that you can read again and again and it'll be as good as the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Potential RomCom! I loved it. Read it quickly and more than once. Yes it had its predictable moments but it was an enjoyable read. I read it like a RomCom. Don't expect deep thoughts. It's a light read but I'd recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang Some Walls I was really surprised by this book, reading the description on the back I thought this would be your typical erotica romance and once the characters met they would have se every chapter. I am pleased to say that it wasn't like that at all, there was depth to the story and I loved the witty banter and humor between the characters and Clive the Cat was one o the best characters in the book. I overall thought the story was fun I thought it was funny how the characters met each other and enjoyed the progression with their relationship. My only complaint for this book is that I got annoyed with Caroline refrencing her O every few pages, that got annoying, it was like in Fifty Shades when Anna kept talking about her inner Goddess, it was funny for a bit but after a while I got annoyed. Overall this was great summer Romance read I would highly recommend it. :0)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simon says... I liked the middle of this story and the tension that the author built between Simon and Caroline was great. But, the beginning and the end had way too much "inner dialogue" in Caroline's mind. What started out as cute (her nicknames for people and body parts), ended up getting very tiresome and annoying. That said, I did enjoy Simon's character very much. I also enjoyed the witty rapport between Simon and Caroline. Finally, while the storyline followed the general formula of adult contemporary romance novels, there were a few nice twists. I was entertained, but only about three stars worth.

USA TODAY bestselling indie author Alice Clayton delights readers with the sexy, laugh-out-loud romance of Caroline and Simon in Wallbanger, the first book in the Cocktail series!

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.
