Rusty Nailed: Cocktail, Book 2 | [Alice Clayton]

Rusty Nailed: Cocktail, Book 2

Playing house was never so much fun - or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running - especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to Wallbanger, fan favorites Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in Sausalito.

Playing house was never so much fun - or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running - especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing - but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA Today best-selling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

    "first walled now nailed?!?!?"

    I have to say, if being walled was good then getting nailed is even better!!! As with the first Clayton gave me a great balance of sexy hot, comical, and just enough drama to not roll my eyes. Whats even better is that once again Smith did a great job giving me a good distinction between character lines and narration.

    "How the narration makes all the difference!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Every once in awhile I'll read a book that's so enjoyable that I'll purchase the audiobook when it comes out for the additional experience. That was the case with Wallbanger, the first in this series. When Rusty Nailed came out I remembered being disappointed by the audio version of Wallbanger, but purchased the audio version of this automatically because of my overall enjoyment of the first book. Well...I should have gone back and listened to Wallbanger or listened to the sample of Rusty Nailed. Heather Smith's narration is so saccharin, overly animated and breathy that I couldn't get past chapter 4 before I went on Amazon and purchased the ebook version. While I couldn't stomach listening to another minute of Rusty Nailed, I enjoyed the ebook version almost as much as Wallbanger. Don't waste the credit, read the book!

    "IMHO"

    I really liked the first one. That's before they started to do the rabbit. That's what I call it when there is more sex than story. I can almost predict the next book, they are redoing a house. They will have sex in all the rooms. When they get to the last room of this old Victorian house, they will add on and start all over.
    Very disappointing.

    "Not Wallbanger :("

    I loved Wallbanger but this book was disappointing. Alice Clayton's humor was one of my favorite things about the first book in the series but Rusty Nailed fell short.

    "Review: Cocktail #2: Rusty Nailed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely - The story is awesome and funny and you cannot go wrong with an Alice Clayton book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book to me was lie a view behind the scenes. What happens AFTER the Happily Ever After... And it was still happy but definitely had some toward spiraling moments.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Clive's return with his own harem.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yeah - It's entertainment and the characters are like old friends. You wanna hear about them and catch up on their lives.

    "Blah.. couldn't finish"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really enjoyed listening to Wallbanger and was so excited to purchase this book. What a disappointment! The storyline, or lack of, was so boring I finally had to quit listening.


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

    Sure


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    frustration, boredom, disappointment and upset that I wasted a credit.

    I love to read. It's as simple as that. It stands to reason that I'd love to listen to books being read to me as well.

    "A fantastic sequel!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved seeing Caroline and Simon's story progress! And I loved that she doesn't change for him! Alice Clayton has an awesome writing style and her sense of humor is fantastic!


    What does Heather Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Heather Smith does such a fantastic job voicing all of the characters! She has a different - yet consistent - voice for each different person!

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Alice Clayton and/or Heather Smith?

    I love Alice Clayton and would read more from her, but this book was so dull! If you're going to write a sequel to something as funny and well-loved as Wallbanger, as least make it interesting. I was yawning the entire book!

    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.

    "Perfect follow up to Wallbanger"
    What made the experience of listening to Rusty Nailed the most enjoyable?

    To see the progression of Simone and Caroline's relationship. She didn't become someone different because she was in a relationship with Simon.


    What other book might you compare Rusty Nailed to and why?

    None


    Have you listened to any of Heather Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She did a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Clive!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to The Red Head series by Alice Clayton and now Wallbanger series. I am in love with this book. It's real, mature, funny, and honest. More than worth the credit.
