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) li...more

Pure gold!
I’m in love with Simon.
Completely, utterly in love.
My cheeks ache from laughing.
My heart is happy.
Did I mention I love this book?

This book was pure, decadent, lighthearted, un-put-downable, FUN!! A well-written, perfect blend of all things happy, romantic, sweet, funny (hilarious, really), melty, swoony, witty, steamy, with just enough tender, deeper moments to make my heart squeeze....more

3 1/2 to 4 stars

There's no doubt Wallbanger is a fun, delightful, moderately sexy, feel-good read that bordered on the ANNOYING. There were times I felt like wallbanging my head against the wall with the amount of unresolved sexual tension this poor couple was put through. Geez! This particular aspect of the story became so frustrating.

I enjoyed getting to know the two main characters, Simon and Caroline. They were endearing, playful–maybe a little immat...more

"Hello O! Nice to see you again. With his lips he brought me one."


3.5 stars. I mean it. And I want half stars!

Once upon a time there was a missing O. The pressure of an O long denied, waiting patiently—and sometimes impatiently—for her release. Lucky you, because you found The Wallbanger.

Simon: How’s the pressure now?
Caroline: Do you want me to hurt you? Shut it! *a look of dreamy bliss on her face*

This is the story of wallbanging photographer Simon and interior designer Caroline. Their apartments are across the hall from each other and the walls are very very thin....so you can hear everything that's going on in each other's apartments. Are you following me so far? Well, Simon doesn't do relationships, flowers, etc....and one night while BANGING(yes...more

freaking hilarious and hot read!
Litchick (is stuck in the 19th century)
Have you ever been in the honeymoon phase with someone? You know, that dreamy world where everything the other person does is magic and you can’t seem to get enough of each other?

Usually during this time you go AWOL from the rest of your lives for a few weeks and mash your squishy bits together 24/7.

At some point (usually when chafing forces you out of your hormone induced frenzy) you remember there are other people in your life and so you emerge from your lust-filled cocoon and introduce this...more

So disappointed! This book went from "O.M.G!" to a big fat "D.N.F." at 75%

I really (and I mean REALLY!) enjoyed the opening of this book, and was looking forward to a great read. But in the end, I gave it too much of my time and finally just had to call it quits.

Oh, it started off so funny and original. The 'Wallbanger' and 'Cock blocker' jokes were cute. Simon was such a mystery, and Caroline was a person I would love to hang with if she was a real person. Her conversations with her cat had me...more

Just what I needed!

During a pretty mad point in my year end, Alice Clayton put the smile on my face I so needed.
I loved Caroline, although she was a little crackers, but I've got to cut the girl some slack because if I'd have been lacking in the area in which she was oh so lacking, then I guess I would be a bit of a loose canon too.

Enter Simon. The flirting, sexual tension and innuendos that were batting between these two almost me had me wishing I could magic myself into the scene to rip thei...more

Ok, let's keep this short and sweet...

This book was OKAY but just okay, nothing exciting. I was expecting much more but well, I guess I am in a book funk at the moment.

Simon and Caroline live in the same building. They meet each other because Simon is a Wall Banger. Yes, he f@cks different chicks every night and Caroline and her sweet and EVIL cat Clive can't sleep. So well, you're probably getting the picture... One night she knocks on his door and TA CHAN they see each other and the...more

♥♥♥ Simon Wallbanger. The book started with a lot of "thump-thump-spank me-thum-thump-meow,meow-thump-thump-giggles" the spanking, the meowing, the giggles belong to three different "harems" and the thumping was all done by the Giant Bed of Sin.

Wallbanger is the literary equivalent of a long night giggling with your best friend over cocktails & pints of ice-cream… It just makes you feel good

Nights like that might not be life altering… but they'll stick with you all the same. A fond memory you can draw on when you're having a rough day. This book will affect you in a similar way.

We all know the premise...

Caroline, Independent, refreshing, lovely, sweet, pretty and hot! ;)
Liked her character, not the normal Bella types who whines, who's clingy, pissing off etc!

Laugh-out-loud, snort-tea-through-your-nose, stupid-grin-on-your-face funny!

I found that this took a little while to get going. At about the 25% mark, it was dragging and I was thinking to myself 'Ok, so? Come on, get to the point.' And then it did!

And it was hilariously funny, brilliantly witty, yet adorably romantic and incredibly sexy! Yep, all of those things rolled into one book.

- A bit unbelievable
- Annoying cat, but also hilarious!!
- Really likeable, normal people...this was my favorite part.

While I enjoyed the story and got a few good chuckles out of it, once again I wasn't as enamored as everyone else seemed to be. I feel like the old grumpy Grandma sitting in her recliner hollering at everyone to quiet down. The story was fun and light with a nice sweet contemporary romance to read when yo...more
What is with these 'OMG! Super-Hot! Fun!' books that become all the rage here on GR lately? And they are all the same.

A Mary Sue heroine with a perfect job and perfect friends who looks perfect but for some reason is alone and sexually frustrated. And she's all kinds of batshit about her perceptions of men or sex or men AND sex. Thus, the heroine of what exactly?

Then the hero. Well he's of course otherworldly gorgeous and fit, although he puts absolutely no effort into becoming that way, and mo...more

Dear Ms. Clayton,

I am writing to you as I know you have a close personal relationship with Simon, Caroline and their posse. I wanted to first congratulate you on excellent taste. You telling us about these people in the way that you did, just brightened up my day. It was such a change to see grown up, evolved professionals behave as friends, looking out for one another and interacting in a respectful manner. That they weren’t per...more

The thing that made me bump this up to 3 stars was definitely the banter, it was super funny and sexy....
after thinking about it a bit.. i did bump it down after all. to much babbling and cliche. Actually other than the banter i didnt enjoy the book that much.

Honestly I ended up liking this more than I initially thought.

Opening line: ”Oh God.” Thump. “Oh God.” Thump, thump. What the….”Oh God, that’s so good!”

Wallbanger, Ha, I freakin loved this book. Just awesome. A great story (that made me laugh) an addictive romance (are they ever going to make it into bed?) and a very fresh voice in chick lit (reminding me of a updated and naughtier Jennifer Crusie)

I’ll admit this wasn’t as sexy as I was expecting. What I mean is that with a title like “Wallbanger” I was anticipating a story more on the erotic side. Not tha...more

Oh Alice, how I’ve missed your humor. I was so freaking excited to get this book as an ARC. Alice is one of those can’t miss authors and to have an opportunity to read this ahead of time…**happy dance**

This book started off in classic Alice style with lots and lots of humor. The sexual innuendoes and smart ass whit was back in full force. Even after the first chapter, she had me smirking and giggling like a school girl. I...more

Alice Clayton’s tale of Caroline Reynolds a.k.a. ‘Pink Nightie Girl’ and Simon Parker a.k.a. ‘Wallbanger’ is a fun read!

Caroline has two great girlfriends, an amazing job and has just settled into her new apartment with her cat, Clive. The only thing missing thanks to Corey Weinstein is her “O”.

Soon Caroline and Clive find that the occupant of the apartment that shares her bedroom wall has a very active sex life. Through her peep hole she notes a rotation of three wom...more
✽ Sharon is an emotional book junkie ✽
Wallbanger is about Caroline who has just moved into her new apartment only to be awaken in the middle of the night but some serious wall banging from her neighbor. After enduring this for several nights and losing sleep, she has finally had enough and confronts The Wallbanger.

This is a cute, funny, light read. There's not much drama, just a lot of flirting and one crazy but sweet cat. And even though it's about sex, there isn't really any steamy scenes till the end.

Caroline was really easy to...more

“Then I heard, for the love of all that’s holy, spanking. You can’t misinterpret the sound of a good spanking, and someone was receiving one next door.”

I remember seeing this book a while ago but I was just like nah I don’t want to read that. I already know what is probably going to happen. Boy was I wrong! I thought it was just going to be about a girl that falls in love with a guy who lives next door but she is like oh no I can’t, and cry in her room the whole...more
