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 honestly think so. The narrator has a wonderful way with the humor in the story. She managed to narrate her way through a variety of wall banging organisms in a way that made them funny and edgy but not uncomfortable. This was a very funny story but the narration was even better. The best I have heard in a while in fact. I hope they have Heather Smith do more of Alice Clayton's work! Keep the work coming her way she is truly gifted!
Mimi. Loud, tiny, and obsessively organized is one hell of a combination. :-) I also liked the cat Clive.
Probably the one where her friends stop by about when the wall banging starts up next door and they all sit back to listen. I was laughing so hard I almost choked.
It was very funny but I also had a few moments that brought on the angst. Not too much but enough that I knew the author had me by the tail and could make me feel what she wanted too. I laughed alot and actually cried once.
I got a bit frustrated with all of the talk of the "O". by the end I pretty much fast-forwarded through the love scenes because halfway through the good part she would start waxing poetic about her orgasm like it was a woman who was playing hard to get. I kind of wanted to slap the character at that point. There was enough to make up for it, but that particular plot line was overdone. If you can't come then get drunk enough and get a vibrator.... It doesn't merit that much drama.
I have to admit that the title of this book had me turned off in the beginning, but I was pleasantly surprised by this book, at times it had me laughing out loud in public.The narrator was great, and the story was interesting.
definitely top 10
She makes the best Caroline!
This is the funniest, most entertaining book! It is erotic and funny, which is more "real life' than a lot of romance novels!
This is a hilarious listen - very playful, spirited and blunt. If you're looking for a light listen, this is a good choice.
I am addicted to books, audible books, kindle and my 18 beautiful cats! And one dog and a husband too. Lol
Ok, so the title sorta gives away that its going to be about sex or construction, right? I was betting on sex. Yeah for me. The story is so funny, you laugh all through it. The characters are rich, creative, and fragile. The cat who pees on potential new comers is hilarious. Its a sweet love story, not a lot of sexual detail, just enough to feel the lllllllllllloooovvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeee. Its funny, heartwarming and a great read. You should get this one if you love funny romances.
I would definitely read another book by Alice Clayton. When I was reading the book I laughed out loud in so many parts. When I listened to the Audio I wasn't happy with Heather Smith's narration. I cringed a lot especially when the characters would be flirting. She totally ruined it for me. I think Heather needs to narrate for Disney, because for me she ruined it!!! Very disappointed!!!
I think a good Narrator for Wallbanger would be Elizabeth Louise, Jill Redfield, or Grace Grant.
OH YES!!!! This was a great story that made me laugh out loud I don't know HOW many times!!!! The story was great, the narration was great, and this is a DEFINITE listen again!!!
Every moment that Caroline's cat was around Simon had my sides hurting from laughter!
There is no other name! Wallbanger is the perfect title!!!
I'd rather listen than read!!!! This is my joy!!!
I wish it did not take so long to get to the main part of the story. It just took so long to develop the characters.
I like the quirkiness of the main character. I do however love the part where the author enabled the reader/listener to be privy to each character's thoughts at one point in the story. I love things like that as oppose to having only one character sharing his/her thoughts. I do like that once the pinnacle of the novel was reached there was some development of things that transpired after the match was made.
I loved her voice and her detail to giving each character his/her own personality
No, not enough of a story line for a movie or tv series
Love reading and listening to hot stories read by Sebastian York xx
Clearly funny and steamy right from the start...couldn't put it down. He is priceless and she is your typical girl next door. I really liked the story line was fun to listen to something more than rich man seduces working girl....this is NOT that at all . They both have super careers and share one thin wall and lots of sexy loud noise! Thumbs up!!!
Author of Passion Surrender, which was released in January 2015. I enjoy reading, writing, traveling and spending time with my family.
This is one of the most titillating reads I've read in quite a while. The chemistry between Caroline and Simon is electrifying to say the least. You won't be disappointed with this book
Heather Smith's narration is awesome. She puts so much emphasis into the read that you can't help but love this book.
A steamy romance sure to fog your windows!
