Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O.
Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and – was that a meow? – punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O.
Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick…

Have you ever accidentally (or not so accidentally) overheard strangers doing the deed? No wait, maybe I don’t want to hear the answer to that, haha.
Wallbanger is great characters all wrapped up in a funny, sweet, and sexy story. I could easily see myself hanging out with Caroline and her friends and having a great time. It’s a small detail but I love that she talks to her cat, Clive, as if he’s a person….because really, what pet owner doesn’t?! Clive ends up being a fun addition. Cover to cover this book is an entertaining read. Heck, even the summary alone makes me want to read it again.
My only gripe would be that the book felt long. Although I did like the ending it just seemed as though it wasn’t really needed and it could have ended at a different spot.
Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
