Book: Wallbanger
Series: (Cocktail #1)
Author: Alice Clayton

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.

There is distinction (in my head at least) between chick-lit and contemporary romance. The first one is more light-hearted the second usually features some kind of issue the the MC works thought the book.
The only issue the heroin had here was her problem to, ahm, "finish" (sex-vise). So, no, i didn't like this particular chick-lit.

And its not that it was a bad book, it wasn't. Its definitely funny if noting else. It made me lough a few times, the boy was hot, the girl was so-so but manageable, there was chemistry, there was tension and some smexy scenes, but...
its not you book, its me!

If you like your chick-lit a little shallow and a lot sexy then this is the book for you.
Me? In future I'll keep my Chick-Lit in visual form only (aka watch movies with Katherine Heigl) and stick to contemporary romance when reading.


  1. This sounds a little too much 50 Shades of Grey for me!

  2. i haven't read 50 shades so i cant really tell, but i don't think is that bad. still i don't recommended it to a young adult reader, it was funny, but it was not worth the read!

  3. I had a lot of fun reading this. I love chick lits because they are a nice way to cool off. This one was really funny :D

  4. Haha. It's NOTHING like 50 Shades :)
