it was amazing
Read 3 times. Last read September 6, 2014 to September 7, 2014.

What can I say about this book (and its predecessor, Wallbanger) except that it’s fun, fun, fun. Alice Clayton has a quick wit and the book isn’t sprinkled with it, it’s saturated! Tons of banter, one-liners and silly nicknames. But the story isn’t one big joke; the characters are 3-D and their lives aren’t all rainbows and unicorns.

It’s *cough* pretty steamy, too.

Caroline is a career woman –a designer- who’s about to take a step up in her field. But her boyfriend, our wall banging friend, Simon, travels constantly. Like a lot of women, Caroline has to learn how to balance her busy life and maintain her relationships. At times, she must learn to compromise. At other times, she has to stick to her guns. When she’s true to herself, things tend to go well for her. I really like this character for making tough choices.
Simon is sexy as ever –a contributing factor being his sense of humour. When Caroline’s office is being renovated and the workmen are banging on the walls, Simon just has to ask if she still likes his hammer. He always makes her laugh, which is adorable.

One of the things I like best about this novel is the way everyday moments flesh out the story and make it feel real. Simon snores. He tends to sleep on top of a very squashed Caroline, who says he’s too hot (which pleases him no end). Clive the Cat constantly inserts himself between his owner and her boyfriend (which pleases Clive no end). Simon works on his relationship with Clive (Yeah, he has serious conversations with the cat, which pleases Caroline no end).

Be careful where you read this one, because you’re likely to laugh out loud.
