This book was just ok. It ended nicely and had some memorable moments but the conflict sequence; her personal struggle; his confusion about what love is yada yada yada took too long.
Also the story telling is bland. They teach you in high school writing classes to paint a picture not just plainly state the situation. The writer missed that class.
I loved this series, specifically Wallbanger, Rusty Nailed and Last Call...when i read Wallbanger, I thought kind of silly, and yet laugh out loud funny - and ultimately sexy. The series is not gratuitous though the title suggests it - I have not read the other two, but these three books together, are amazing..an excellent trilogy. They may not be exciting for some, but they are funny, not absurdly so, I felt like we were taking some pages from the lives of true friends. No, no-one almost dies, no-evil plot is happening to take over one person with a sordid past, and yet you find yourself drawn in and flowing along the River that is the Simon and Caroline relationship. Both of them were living their lives until suddenly, the one they didn't "know" they were waiting for showed up. Simon and Caroline are a beautiful endearing couple. When someone says something wrong or gets moody, it doesn't mean the end of their relationship, they aren't divided by a misunderstanding for months - and when there is a misunderstanding they work it out. Read these three books of this series, in order and Listen to them, while I thought this narrator was a little old sounding for this character, i grew to like her and her enthusiasm and I loved Caroline and Simon, they were sweet, flawed, loyal and beautiful - and Clive (the cat) was just a bonus - a really enjoyable bonus and I love how Simon falls in love with him and assumes he is part of his family and talks to him. So glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews on Rusty Nailed saying it was boring. For me these characters and their stories were anything but..and there was no more sex in Rusty Nailed than any other book and less than many. I have listened to so many series and this one was light, refreshing tender humanity - don't miss these three books of this series...either in the reading or the listening. It kind of evolved into a really fine wine.
Yes. This was such a comical book. Whenever I need a good laugh this will be the book I go to.
She was fantastic. I can't imagine reading this book out loud and yet she did it so well.
Caroline and Simon
This was such a great listen. I've been wanting to read it for awhile but didn't have the time. I'm actually glad that I did the audio first.
I can't think of anyone that would enjoy this book
I'm not even sure what the genre would be
Narrator was ok
It was a very witty and funny story since the beginning.
The H/h had a though start but the bad temper both of them had morphed into something sweet and hot...
Loved this book. No big drama or heavy subjects, very light and easy to listen.
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
Alice Clayton yes, Heather Smith absolutely no, at least until she can breathe properly for a narrator.
They're all fun
Someone who can read and breathe properly
I wonder what qualifies people to narrate a book. Heather Smith needs a refresher course. I'm not trying to hate on her but as a proffessional narrator she's lacks a great deal.
This book is silly and extremely annoying. Such a shame because it started out pretty good. I have never left a negative comment before, but I felt it was only fair as this book was seriously painful to listen to.
