The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she's gaining an 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...
**Disclaimer: This is an Adult story and should be read by mature audiences only. I’d say ages 17+**
This was an entertaining read. I enjoyed Caroline’s story about her moving into a new apartment (still without her “O”) and meeting the wallbanging manwhore who lived next door and made one woman literally purr as she climaxed. And, yes, I have a slight crush on Simon the Wallbanger. He just sounds so delicious. 😀
There were a few things that irked me with the book which made me knock it down a star. There was a time where Caroline and Simon finally get together and Caroline finally has her “O” back in session, they do it like 6 or 7 times in like a 15 hour time frame. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’d be able to go that many times. And at this part, I just felt like I was reading the same thing over and over, page after page. So, it actually kind of bored me at a point during the sex scenes here. The second thing that irked me was that the very last chapter was from the cat’s POV, and I just found that super weird!
All-in-all, though, I will definitely be continuing on in this series and reading more about Caroline and Simon’s adventures together! If you’re in the mood for some good ole romance fluff with humor in it, I’d give this one a try! It’s definitely entertaining, to say the least!
