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...

Haven't read the print version. The audio version however is awesome!
Caroline of course! She had the "bangin" nerve to face him and go for it!
Oh she is wonderful! Her presentation actually makes me want to listen to this book again!
Caroline, Her inner thoughts are so funny.
I recommend this book to everyone! Great story , Great performance and I am still laughing at some of the parts I can remember. Gonna listen to it again!
Loved the comedy in this book. I was seriously laughing out loud during my drives to and from work while listening to this book. There were a few gaps in the story for me, but they weren't so terrible that I couldn't over look them.
This book was totally worth the credit. :) I would LOVE to see more from this author.
Yes. This was like watching a great rom-com. Fun, forgettable, and very entertaining. I would listen again because the writing and the narration was simple fun! Nothing heavy here .
I love angst, and these characters had some very minor heart wrenching that I enjoyed.
I always love the protagonists best. I honestly didn't love her voice for Simon, but I still enjoyed the read.
I bought this audiobook because it was a bargain, and I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't read or listening to much in the "chic lit' category as a disclaimer! I felt like parts of the story were very contrived: especially Caroline's two best friends, who were caricatures at best and one dimensional buzzing gnats at worst. I thought some parts of the story were creative like the texting logs. I would recommend this to someone who enjoys a good, sexy romance.
Wallbanger was the best. I wish they really made men like him!
The narrator's performance was probably my favorite part of this audiobook. She didn't hold back! It all came together in the end in a frenzy of breathy, sexy moaning.
I could see this being a romantic comedy with a N17 rating.
I was looking for something light to listen to between some of my more serious, darker reads. This fit the bill perfectly! The narrator has a great voice and she really got into character! This book had many parts where I found myself laughing out loud. The build up to the "good part" seemed maybe slightly unrealistic, but I wasn't expecting it to be too real. After all, it wouldn't be a good summer escape if it was too realistic, right? The author's writing style was very creative and the first person narrative didn't annoy me as it sometimes does. Overall, for what it's meant to be- it's a lovely book! I will be looking for more from this author again in the future. Also, the narrator did a great job and I hope to listen to her again soon!
Romance Novel Lover
Funny romance ...Clive Clive Clive... The cat too funny. Writing was superb story line wonderful Great Story. So glad to use a credit for this one. Need more by this author
There was no real excitement in the book for me......I think the best part was at the cabin! It wasn't a bad book, just nothing really jumped out for me....nothing separated this book from the other "average" romance books that I have read out there.
I love a good book but thanks to dislexea i suck at reeding speling and ya. so bring on audio fiction!
I laughed all through thiss book it really took me by surprise deffentaly pick it up if u have a sence of humor!
First half was just laugh after laugh to listen to but the second half just slowed to a crawl,didn't finish it . Too bad the first half was so funny the time just flew bye. Was worth the credit and I can't say that about any other book I didn't finish.
Narrator- 5 stars
I enjoyed the story of Caroline and Simon. She is quirky and funny and he is sexy and flirtatious. The entire book is about attraction and preconceived ideas. It has funny parts but not very many steamy parts. It was written differently and I did enjoy it. It took me a bit to get into the story and some of the characters just did not seem developed enough. Overall I did like the story and it was a good listen. I just don't know if I would rate it really high. I liked it but I just did not love it. I read the book based on other reviews and I see their point but for me it was good not great. That seems like you should not read it but that is not what I am saying. I just think if you are looking for alpha males, complicated plots or steamy hot scenes this is not the book for you. It is more of light hearten easy listening romance.
