Caroline Reynolds should have the life. She has the perfect job, a great boss, amazing friends, and an amazing new apartment that she shares with her cat Clyde. The only thing missing? Caroline’s O you know her big happy ending after her bow chika wow wow. Yeah after a one night stand with Cory Weinstein or as Caroline refers to him as “The machine-gun f@*ker” Caroline has lost her O for over 6 months. On Caroline’s first night in her apartment she thinks everything is perfect except she hears: “Oh, God.” Thump. “Oh, God.” Thump Thump. Caroline is right ticked with her sex crazed neighbor who brings not one but three girls to his home for interesting performances before leaving town for weeks on end. When finally it’s too much and Caroline can’t take the thumping anymore she goes to confront her noisy neighbor in her pink nightie. Now suddenly the two are meeting at every turn and while they didn’t hit it off right away…like at all they quickly realize the attraction between them, but will Simon’s amazing bed thumping powers be able to wake up Caroline’s O? I think so.
Hehe moments: Oh my goodness so I found this book on another blog and after reading their review I just had to get it. I read it in like one sitting and this book had me in giggling fits. I swear some of the scenes in this book are so freaking hilarious right from the beginning I just couldn’t not fall in love with Wallbanger. The characters are hilarious and just the many crazy circumstances that happen like water exploding from both the tub and kitchen while both characters are practically naked? Hilarious! Oh and the cat…*sigh* well I don’t want to spoil anything.
Holy Hotness: Simon whew he is one sexy man! I mean seriously he works out and likes to cook and is a great lover!! (Okay that totally sounded like I know from person experience.) Seriously though Simon is yummy:
“He had jet black hair that stood up straight likely from the Giggler’s hands buried in it as he plowed into hwe. His eyes were piercing blue, and cheekbones just as strong as the jaw. (…)I gazed down his long, lean bosy. He was tan, but not a premeditated tan-outdoorsy tan, weathered tan, manly tan. His chest rose and fell as he panted.”
Hello peeps yum yum yum right?
Awesomely relatable characters: While I didn’t think I would relate too much to any of the characters I did. Caroline was perfect with strengths weaknesses and crazy friends. She’s such a strong woman and never beats around the bush with what’s going on or how she’s feeling and I really related and enjoyed that.
Growing relationship: While many of the books I read are generally YA with insta-love and insta-attraction and yatta yatta yatta Wallbanger was definitely not like that. While the two characters were instantly attracted to one another they didn’t like each other and throughout the story they grow as friends and then as something more than friends…you know boyfriend and girlfriend who have great wallbanging sexy time. I definitely relate to that and I think from time to time it’s nice to have no insta-love or love that’s easy because in real life it’s not so yeah definitely liked that the author and the characters took the relationship slow.
All in all: LOVED IT! Honestly I couldn’t have read a better book. Definitely great humor, relatable characters, great writing and amazingly swoon worthy scenes that will leave readers fanning themselves because I know I was. I would definitely recommend Wallbanger to anyone looking for a relatable humorous love story. Wallbanger is definitely one of the best adult romance fiction books I have ever read and so you should definitely go read this.(less)

Holy freaking balls! Why why why!?!?! H.M. Ward is killing me with these endings and I just knew, KNEW something was wrong with the whole sexting thing. I mean seriously Avery’s life sucks major butt and not in the way some people like. I mean really her life is complete crap. Her parents are dead she meets a guy who is a complete whacko but perfect for her but not. Her gay best friends not really gay and then hires her, and now the sexting thing…I mean wow! First off I knew that Holly was going to be making Avery suffer because honestly I have never read an author who drags her characters through the dirt more with such a great story. I mean don’t get me wrong I love H.M. Ward and I think her ability to draw out the ending and suffering really makes her a one of a kind author. I honestly couldn’t love any of her books more. Anyway back on track so Avery gets called in one her day off work and BAM! She thinks the guy she’s hooking up with is supposed to be Sean but in the end it turns out it’s not! Poor thing and that ending ladies and gentleman is why The Arrangements #10 needs to come out like yesterday! The suspense is going to be too much and honestly will kill me. Oh and Sean gets jealous which believe you me is hot hot hot! I love how much Mel is in this book because honestly half the time she reminds me of myself. I still love Avery throughout this book and just all the characters as a whole because even the sinister ones it’s just yeah I totally hate you because the writing is so amazing and you love the main characters so much you don’t want them hurt. Avery reminds me of myself so so much if I was in that situation. All in all I freaking loved The Arrangements #1 and 2 and 3 and all the way to 9 and I know I will love this series until the end! To those of you who haven’t checked this series out yet…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Get on it! You haven’t lived until you’ve read able the sexy Ferro’s and just the amazing way Holly entangles her different series and different novels in with each other is just amazing and you haven’t read until you’ve read H.M. Wards writing!
Favorite Quote: “My name is Tiffany and I-“ Mel tilts her head to the side like she’s annoyed and doesn’t even look at the woman. “Listen, Stepford Psycho, we aren’t going to take and crap, or hard sales, or whatever you have planned up there in your little plastic head, so walk away and if we find something to but, I’ll snap my fingers and you will pounce over here like a good little b*tch because you work on commission.”

What Happens: Tate leaves for a year and comes back to find her tormentor and old best friend still has issues with her. After sinking to his level of bullying she decides to be honest with him about how much he’s hurt her and it changes everything. Now Jared isn’t the douche he used to be and all he wants is Tate and her love.
Tate: I liked Tate somewhat. Honestly she wasn’t the most appealing character due to her obsession with Jared and it was so horribly obvious it was aggravating. I mean no offense but if someone was so terrible to me I wouldn’t be swooning after him… at least I’d like to think so. Even so she was a strong character who stands up for what she believes in even when she’s wrong. A lot of the times she’s relatable and a good friend and daughter. All in all she was ok.
Jared: Jared is a sexy douche bag. Lol isn’t how a lot of us like them? (Hint hint Daemon Black). He’s a lot like that except he really is a bully and while his reasoning kind of sucked to me as to why he’s so mean I still liked him. He’s very possessive of Tate even when they’re not dating and while what he does to her a lot of the times is cruel he’s still great and sexy and completely book boyfriend material.
Drama Llama: Holy crap high school drama and angst are everywhere in this novel. I mean really. There’s the pretty shallow mean girl who pines after the main characters man (Jared) man whore even after he’s obviously with someone else. There are bad rumors and gossip and bullies (obviously it’s in the title). There’s sex and boyfriends and girlfriends breaking up and cheating and rebound guys. Guys liking girls and the girls not liking the guy back. I mean full of the drama llama.
My Overall View: The entire idea behind Bully was amazingly unique and totally amazing. I enjoyed the twist. Jared was completely sexy and passionate. I didn’t like Tate as much as Jared but I was happy how it ended. I think a lot of people would enjoy Bully for the sexy scenes and unique characters and story-line. Bring on the rest of the series!(less)
