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'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.
Folks who want a typical "Sex in the City" type book.
There wasn't a single plot twist I didn't see a mile away. And I listen to books while I'm doing household chores, so I am not paying much attention, most of the time.
I might be, depending on other's reviews and ratings.
I bought this book based on its high recommendation from other listeners but it wasn't really for me. There is a funny part at the end with the cat (who is the best character in the book) but other than that, I found it to be very drawn-out and a bit tortuous. The narrator was good enough for the material she had to work with but there really wasn't much plot at all. It's really just hours and hours of a couple finally getting together.
This is just a basic romance novel. There are no real sub-plots or fascinating secondary characters. It's just boy meeets girl and a whole lot of angst around why they couldn't possibly get together - for nearly 14 hours!
This wasn't an exhilarating, or even all that interesting, listen for me.
Dear god i thought this was never going to end *UGH* 13 Hours of utter rambling. Started off ok but should have finished in 5hrs not drawn out and filled with absolute crap to make the 13 hour mark! What a wasted purchase so disappointed.
The main character is shallow, materialistic... and mostly just an immature whiny kid.
The book plays into a lot of negative women stereotypes that I feel we could do without.
I realize I'm not the target demographic here... I kinda picked this one by mistake... but regardless I thought this one was extremely painful to get through. I kept wanting to reach through the pages and punch the characters in the face.
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!!
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.....
I must say, I purchased this because of the reviews. Many said it was funny and romantic. Indeed the reviews were correct about the hilarity of the book. I laughed my bottom off with this book. Her cat! Meow!!! Funny!!!!!! The inner monologues and the texting amongst the friends kept me laughing so hard. However, I was disappointed at the romance angle since these two were made for each other, but could not seem to get "it" going until late in the book. I was also ticked at the heroine's friends for spilling what was an obvious confidence to people they barely knew. I like my romances steamy and this was not even close to boiling. Heather Smith was a great narrator. However, I will think twice before purchasing by this author again. If I want hilarity over steam, then I would consider this writer.
I like to listen while I exercise, do housework, knit, etc., so I usually prefer a light read for an audiobook.
Colin Firth narration.
This book was terribly disappointing. Many reviewers claimed it was funny. It just made me groan it was so trite, so poorly written, and so not funny!
This book was a huge waste of money. Yes, you should judge a book by its cover. I should have been forewarned by the title that it would be bad, but let other reviewers' comments on its humor sway me. Bad writing is not funny.
yes & i have
yes she is brilliant
stranger banging on the wall
loved it........ funny
"My first Alice Clayton audio book and I loved it."
Yes, I have recommend this book to friend because it is a great book. I wanted to share it with friends because it made me laugh.
"Wonderful 😃wall anger !!"
From the music at the start and end to the exceptional performance quality and production this audio book was outstanding. Laugh a minute witty dialogue, snappy comebacks and loveable characters you'll lap up EVERY bite. Don't get me started on Clive, who is simply a star!! Can't wait for more top marks Alice 😘
"So not what I expected"
I had read a couple of reviews on this book and held off from reading it , how wrong were they I havent enjoed a book so much in ages the narrator is ace and becomes Caroline - the writer has made it so funny, poignant sensual and really interesting from start to finish really looking forward to the next book .
"Not Disappointed!! Narrator is Fabulous!"
I have wanted to read this for ages, but my tbr list is ridiculous, so Audible is helping me no end!!!
Listening to this was Amazing!! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and laughed at the narrator having to 'sound out' the sex noises coming from Simon's apartment. ;-)
Really refreshing book and the relationship between Caroline and Clive is something else also.... had me in fits. I am sure that he could have a book of his own! So imagine my delight when i got to the end, seriously, what he did to the 'Tall one' i had to skip back to make sure i was hearing correctly!
Loved the search for the missing O, and damn.... when she returns, she really dolls herself up in her finest and makes sure everyone is there to notice her entrance doesn't she ;-)
"You're going to want to hold on for this!"
Can't wait to get my hands on more from Alice..
"3-4 star book"
A fair bit of the dialogue was laugh out loud funny - a bit embarrassing when you are doing you shopping
I might but i found her style a bit too slow, I enjoyed it more when i listened to it at 1.5x speed.
no! it is far too long to listen in one go but i did listen to it over 2 days.
I found it quite easy to listen to and enjoy in a very superficial way, I did'nt especially bond with the characters but they were nice. There are no major crisis or overly emotional parts of the book (youll be in no danger of crying thats for sure) I did struggle to get through their trip to spain but then the story picks up again after that. the sex is not especially raunchy either and I quite like rude/sexy book. Overall I would describe this as a really good holiday book worthy of about 3.5 stars overall.
"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 .
