Wallbanger | [Alice Clayton]

Wallbanger

Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. 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.

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...

    "It was good.. and then"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was good time spent until I got to the party where the story line became unbelivable


    Would you be willing to try another book from Alice Clayton? Why or why not?

    Maybe.. not sure


    Any additional comments?

    The story plot started very believable and Caroline was a person who most of us could really relate to.

    Simon's story was also very believable and so was the other friends mentioned in the book.

    Considering that most of the book is about the love story between Caroline and Simon and so much tension was built to get to the point that these 2 get to finally be together, I had to stop reading the booking when they get to Spain

    Oh come on! You don’t build all that sexual tension with someone and then sleep nights together without having sex… and then when things get to heat up Simon get “some” and not Caroline and again sleeping together without “it”!

    I am sorry but this is just too unbelievable for me…. For someone who is without a “O” for so long, you would jump to the opportunity to try to get that “O” back

    Simon was…. very disappointing… first he can’t even get words out of his mouth most of the time and then he let her have her way and don’t reciprocate the pleasure. This is not an alfa male in my opinion and for someone who is a “Wallbanger” with some kinks acts to show off, he can’t show how much he desires Caroline?

    He already told her No when she tried to have some sex before and now that they are all alone in beautful Spain, he can't talk or show her that he is into her?
    It completely put me off the book.

    If the story would just “go with the flow” for the build up sexual tension I would continue listening to this book.

    Story
    "predictable - so predictable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Folks who want a typical "Sex in the City" type book.


    What was most disappointing about Alice Clayton’s story?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Smith’s performances?

    I might be, depending on other's reviews and ratings.


    What character would you cut from Wallbanger?

    Mimi

    Story
    "Not wild about this one"

    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.

    Story
    "zero plot line"

    Caroline, the main character, lives in San Francisco with "her girls," the three of them friends since their college days at Berkeley. At a housewarming party, they meet guys who went to Stanford. Imagine their surprise when they realize that Simon is the "wallbanger" who lives next door to Caroline, literally shaking the walls as he has raunchy sex with not one but three different women on successive nights. When she couldn't stand it anymore, she'd pounded on his door in the wee hours of the morning, telling him to quiet down... and he tells her that it's his right to do whatever he wants in the privacy of his house. He starts calling her "cockblocker" for interrupting his sex with woman number three. And, because he's a class act, he tells his two buddies all about the episode, referring to Caroline as "pink nightie girl."

    I am not looking for deep philosophy when shopping for escapist reading. But Berkeley, Stanford... and really? Caroline's fabulous career is to make things pretty. She admires her boss because she's soooooo beautiful, and her super successful boss spends time prying for the latest gossip about "wallbanger."

    Because, wouldn't you know, that Simon is a sweet guy.

    And knowing that he's banging the hell out of three other women is obviously no obstacle to obsessing about his body parts and screaming his name in her wet dreams, which he of course hears and smirks about.

    Doesn't this sound like an empowered, happily ever after scenario?

    The bar is set pretty low when the book is about giggling, twirling a strand of hair on your finger, looking down at your pretty bubble-gum pink toenail polish. Using slang that's outdated, and --ooo! texting!

    Seriously, high school romances have more substance than this. I figured by Chapter Seven something would develop in terms of a plot line, but the story is about prude with a cat lusting helplessly for a womanizer. A formulaic reform of the rake isn't enough dramatic tension to me interested. I wish I could get a refund the four hours I spent listening before giving up. Grade: F.

    Story
    "A few laughs, mostly just bad..."

    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.

    "Trite and Boring"

    I'm not sure where all these stellar reviews are coming from but I sure expected more from this book. The characters are really caricatures. Maybe the narration was part of the problem and made the first person story even more banal. So if you enjoy listening to a woman complain about her lack of orgasms for hours, well this is the book for you. I'm sorry I wasted my time on this.

    "I laughed, I cried, I swooned. Just brilliant!"

    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.....
