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...

Now hold on because I'm going to gush a little here.... this was such a fun listen with lol hilarious bits (especially with the cat). It was also an entertaining and romantic listen that had that 'feel good factor' and, as the sexual chemistry kept building between H/H, it got even more so. It had a dreamy 6 pack handsome hero and a good supporting cast of characters that added another dynamic to the storyline as we hear what all the texts say as they fly between each of the six characters.
I hadn't heard of this author before but I will definitely be looking out for any of her future books.
Worth a credit? The hours of listening pleasure this brings you makes this a very credit-worthy listen - so, in my book, that's a YES.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Don't bother to read the reviews. Use your credit or just purchase it!!!!!!!!! I promise your gonna sit, drive your car, run, or whatever you do while you listen with a BIG smile on your face. This one is one I'd give 10 stars cause it's just that good.
Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
I read this book a while ago and loved it, so snapped it up when I saw it here and am SO pleased I did. Heather Smith is a brilliant narrator and brings the book to life in a way that had me snickering frequently, and hysterically laughing out loud at times. If listening to this on headphones, listen to it alone. Otherwise, people are going to start looking at you funny when you can't control your mirth. Worth a credit? Absolutely! I'd have happily given two credits for this gem.
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
I expected more given the reviews. It was an OK listen. While yes there were some very funny moments, most of the book was boring. I was tired of hearing about her lack of "O" yes we got it, we got the memo several times. We get it, you can't have an organism. By the end I didn't care about either character. The last hour was literally a headache of continuous oh my god, I'm so totally awesome, i'm having a trillion back-to-back orgasms.
The narrator did not add to this story.
No major reactions - I just didn't like it as much as others.
This is definitely one of the best books I have listened to lately. So funny but very sexy. The book starts off great and you just can't help but laugh at the situations Caroline hears through her walls. Then her conversations with her friends about what is happening is great. It is nice to hear a sexy book about two fairly normal people instead of two people who have such tragic pasts. This author reminds me a lot of Molly Harper. Tons of funny, laugh out loud parts but she is also good at creating sexual chemistry. The narrator was also very good. She won me over in the first couple scenes where Caroline hears her neighbors wall banging. Totally worth the credit!!! This is one book you will need to remember where you are when listening because you will find yourself laughing out loud on several occasions. My husband laughed at me several times while I was laughing.
Hilarious and a great story. This book had me laughing the whole time, i think everyone at the gym thought i was crazy but i just could not stop laughing. A must listen again!
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
This book was awesome! Hit all my right buttons!! Steamy, Sexy, Yummy, Romantic, Passionate!!! The narrator did a sublime job! You must buy this book!!
Say something about yourself!
I passed on this book several times. But the reviewers convinced me. I love a funny love story. This one started so good. Very funny, Great characters. The dialog was really good. I'm on the fence with the narrator. I think I maybe getting too picky. She has a great voice. I just can't figure out how she gets it so breathy..and extends the ending of words. It is annoying, but it was not a deal breaker. I didn't think I would eeeevvvvveeeerrrr finish this book it became completely different, the characters changed about a 180....and I couldn't enjoy the change. In my opinion this book could of been memorable.
Being a mom, career woman & student (again) I don't have time to read and miss it. Driving to/from work/school is now fun thanks to audible!
I liked the cat because of his personality. The story had a lot of potential but was a very frustrating listen due to the girl in the story always second guessing herself or being super annoying by over thinking EVERYTHING! Most issues could have been resolved if she'd just communicate! Ugh!
Otherwise it's a good listen when you don't want to make your brain think.
The cat. I found the neighbor's career quite interesting.
She's a bit too breathy. You end up concentrating on her breathing verses reading.
No not really. The story has a great potential if we'd remove the hours of second guessing and overthinking from the main female character. If she would just commuicate her thoughts I think it wouldve been a far more interesting and fun story!
Premise is good. Had potential.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This book has just the right mix of romance and humor. The writing is hilarious and the romance is a nice slow burn. I loved the build up between the two main characters. If you are a romance junkie like me then you will love this one. It's definitely swoon-worthy! I can't wait to read/listen to more books from this author. Just brilliant!
It's credit worthy and then some.....
"Don't waste a credit"
Could not wait to get to the end. Hope it would get better as it went along but it didn't .
