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...

I love reading romance novels as the plot is so simple that you can stop and pick up at any time again. And most of them manage to conjure a "feel good" feeling while reading them.
However, "Wallbanger" was a total disappointment to me. It lacked any plot and had no timing at all. I also didn't like that type of narration at all: exaggerated and hysterical
I was happy when the book finally ended.
When I first started listening I thought another mistake...but I was wrong! I laughed out loud (I was listening at work so people were wondering). Very light and enjoyable listen.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
This was romantic, funny, and cute.
This is the first book I've given all 5's. It made me laugh, no crying, but laugh and swoon. What an adorable book. I didn't expect to enjoy it so much, but I loved it. Especially Clive.
I would never have thought that a book called, Wallbanger would crack me up so much. I guess that's what I get for judging a book by it's cover.This book is so funny, sexy, and cute. I loved it! I was laughing out loud from the beginning. I related to the girlfriends in the book and it cracked me up on how they all interacted with each other. I really loved Alice Clayton did an amazing job writing an awesome book. Read it!! You will love it!
I like the narrator, Heather Smith and thought she did a great job bringing the story to life.
its so not what I thought........! I would have read/ listen to it a long time ago!
simon/ wall banger
i dont know i just like to listen to books and her voice dont annoy me !
WALLBANGER lol ! good name!
dont let the the name stop you. I did and im so mad cause i could have read it so long ago its a good listen !
Tell us about yourself!
This is one of those books that will keep you laughing out loud! Going down the road, driving my car and pure cackeling!!! A riot read. Great story, keeps you going from beginning to end. The only reason, I gave the story a 4 instead of a 5 is at the end, it became the same ole' love story type book. With that said, it is a great read! It will make your funny bone twitch in constant mode!!! It is most definitely worth a credit. As a matter of fact, I listened to it through a friend of mine's account and still downloaded it, so I have it. It's kind of like a motivational funny movie. It can change your whole outlook on your day or multiple days if it takes you that long to listen to it.
High laugh factor!
Great voice and really interprets the humor in the book.
Wallbanger is the perfect title!!!
Well, if my friend is frumpy, maybe. Actually I don't think I have any "friends" this frumpy. I tried to think whether is was the narration or the content that was to blame for my dislike. I am convinced it is both. Although the main characters are supposed to be 26 and 28 yo (revealed well into the story) other characteristics make them sound older. The 26 yo Caroline dotes on her cat like an old spinster and even calls herself "mama" to the cat. She is into big band music. There are lists of items that sound hip or gourmet followed by a frumpy cliche "and so on". And each little quip (some so cliche and corny) is delivered as if it was the greatest thing (tada!) rather than with a dry wit. It represents too much droning on about shopping or food or repeating over and over sappy things the characters are thinking. Never does the author actually recognize that the character is supposed to be Jewish. Caroline uses a couple of yiddish expressions then at one point mentions some cliche about a "whore in church". I guess I find that unnecessary. But there was so much potential. The cover and premise (the naughty neighbor with paper thin walls)...I had to put it down (or permanently pause it) somewhere in the second half. I was compelled to try to give some fair balance in this review (since it has way too many stars) after listening to a couple of Kyra Davis books and the contrast in quality of content and narration was stark.
my next listen were 2 audio books by Kyra Davis.
Ughh, not been so goofy and sappy/forced?
With the droning on with stereotypical frumpy woman details in the second half...it would make a great box office flop.
I've gone by the star ratings on most of the 70 books I've listened to... and I only terminated this and one other book.
This book had everything. It was funny, romantic and it kept my attention all the way through. The characters were original and this book reminded me of nothing I have ever read or listened to before.
The best part of the story was the originality. Lately it seems like everyone is just writing a "50 Shades of Grey" wanna-be. But not this story. Original and funny!
I liked Heather Smith's performance because she made it easy to follow which character was speaking and the emotion in her voice just sucked me right in to the story.
When Simon came home early and surprised Caroline after the trip because he was worried about her.
I thought this was brilliant, I would recommend this to all my friends
Well the storyline was really good, I got so many giggles while listening that my family thought I was going a bit nuts.
The trip to Spain
