Publisher's Summary

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...

    "Predictable"

    Very light. A good book to listen to when you have finished a more intense book. I kept listening waiting for the reveal that was obvious very early in the story. But narrator made a tremendous great job!

    "Funny Romance. Not what I expected."

    I don’t usually jump on books that are so hyped up as Wallbanger has been. I like to let them settle for a while before I give them a try. I kept seeing other bloggers say it was a must read. That it was funny. I was in the mood for a funny contemporary so I decided to listen to Wallbanger.

    I thought that Wallbanger was going to be a hard-core erotic romance but it’s not and I was glad it wasn’t. I loved that Caroline and Simon didn’t sleep together until about ¾ of the way into the book. They don’t have an instant-a-love which is really refreshing. Sure there’s an instant-a-lust but they don’t give into it. They become friends then lovers.

    Caroline and her group of friends reminded me of a younger Carrie Bradshaw and her gal pals from Sex and the City. They have dating wows that is just plain funny. They have each other’s backs and are quick to “bitch” each other out. They find themselves in a unique place where they are all single at the same time. But poor Caroline has taken herself off the market after losing her “O”. That’s right she’s missing her “O” as in orgasm. And how did she loose it? The last time she had sex was with a guy she calls the machine gun fucker. You know the kind that bang-bang bangs you. Which reminded me of the episode where Carrie (Sex and the City) has sex with the “jack rabbit”. LOL

    The way Caroline goes on and on about her missing “O” liked it’s a person and it’s her best friend was so funny. Yeah it sounds cheesy but it really worked the way Alice Clayton wrote it.

    So what’s the worst thing ever for a gal that’s lost her “O”? A neighbor that is hanging out “Os” to what seems like a different woman every night right next door. How does Caroline know what her neighbor is up to every night? The apartment walls are really thin. And that’s also how she knows her neighbor’s name is Simon without even meeting him.

    Apparently Simon is a god in bed because Caroline hears the women’s screams, giggles and meows. That’s right MEOWS.

    “Oh, God.”

    Unbelievable…

    I woke up faster this time, because I knew what I was hearing. I sat up in bed, glaring behind me. The bed was still pulled safely away from the wall, so I felt no movement, but there was sure as hell something moving over there.

    Then I heard… hissing?

    I looked down at Clive, whose tail was at full puff. He arched his back and paced back and forth at the foot of the bed.

    “Hey, mister. It’s cool. We just got a noisy neighbor, that’s all,” I soothed, stretching my hand out to him. That’s when I heard it.

    “Meow.”

    I cocked my head sideways, listening more intently. I studied Clive, who looked back as if to say, “T’weren’t me.”

    “Meow! Oh, God. Me-yow!”

    The girl next door was meowing. What in the world was my neighbor packing to make that happen?

    “Oooh yes, just like that, Simon….Mmmm…meow, meow, meow!”

    Clive is Caroline’s male cat and the meowing drives him nuts which just adds to the funniness of the situation.

    Heather Smith’s narration of Wallbanger adds to the craziness. She does a really good job with Caroline and her inner monologue. Like so many female narrators she wasn’t masculine enough with the guys but still did a good enough job with them. Her narration of “giggles” was really funny. And she did a great job with the few characters that had foreign accents. Smith is definitely suited for Clayton’s writing.

    Between Alice Clayton’s writing and Heather Smith’s performance you get a great romance with funny dialogue, engaging characters and one saucy kitty. I already have the next book; Rusty Nailed loaded on my phone to listen to. I can’t wait to see what Simon and Caroline are up to next.

    "Not funny at all"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Narrator was just fine. Story was not funny, very immature, the inner dialog was silly and really took away from the story.


    What was most disappointing about Alice Clayton’s story?

    Too long without anything really interesting happening. Making the missing "O" a person, creating characters for pseudo parts of her personality - such as Lower Caroline or LC, the spine, nerves, and head all meeting on the playground to fight it out - those sort of tidbits were just immature and irritating.


    What does Heather Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm not sure she added or took away anything to the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wallbanger?

    Remove all inner dialog pieces and edit out some of the "text message" exchanges that don't provide anything - like Ryan thinking about what to get in the convenient store, etc


    Any additional comments?

    I've never once written a negative review but serious this was one of the worst stories I've ever read/listened to. Truly a waste of 14 hrs!

    "OMG Simon can wallbang me any time he wants!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wallbanger to be better than the print version?

    I prefer reading, but this is a close second.


    What other book might you compare Wallbanger to and why?

    No comparison - it's in a league of its own.


    Have you listened to any of Heather Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No - but she did a great job.


    If you could rename Wallbanger, what would you call it?

    Clive: The Wonder Cat and the Adventures of His Human. Clive nearly steals the show...


    Any additional comments?

    This book has AMAZING banter, a super sexy manwhore and a smart, sophisticated, hilarious heroine - I cannot recommend it highly enough - it's one of my fav's!

    "Loved it!"

    Bam, bam, bam...from the start this audiobook was laugh out loud funny. I also liked that Simon and Caroline didn't fall into bed as soon as they recognized the attraction they felt for one another. It was fun to "watch' them move through the different stages of their relationship. The cat epilog was hilarious..

    "Is this really a book?More a boring soap opera!"
    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Boring,silly-plot not developed,characters infantile and flat.Waste of time and money.Not at all funny. Seriously disappointing.Not at all sexy.At best,certain girls who cannot experience an orgasm might identify with the main character. Don't buy this.Don't waste your time.
