Review - Wallbanger by Alice Clayton


Alice Clayton


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…


*4 Laugh Out Loud Stars*

“Fucking Wallbanger,” I hissed, frozed on the spot.
His grin slid off as well as he played place-the-face for a moment. “Fucking Pink Nightie Girl.”

Alice Clayton - Are you sure you are human?? I think you may be a comedian sent from another planet with the sole purpose of making us women double over with laughter!

Wallbanger is a ROMP of a read!! I listened to this on AudioBook every morning and evening on my journey to/from work...And the looks I got from fellow drivers when I was stopped at traffic light were odd to say the least! But I suppose when you are sitting at 7am, laughing so hard there are tears tripping down your face, it may seem strange!

This story is all about Caroline, Simon and Clive.

Caroline - A mid twenties Interior Designer with a passion for travelling

Simon - A Wallbanging, Man-Slut Photographer

Clive - A spoilt Pussy. No, stop the dirty thoughts right there readers - Clive is a spoilt CAT!

Clive is quite possibly my favourite ever character in a novel. No, seriously!!

Caroline moves into a new apartment in San Francisco, into a beautiful place with stunning views, a gorgeous kitchen and, unfortunately, a Wallbanging Next Door Neighbour. One that actually makes women go Crazy.

The girl next door was meowing. What in the world was my neighbor packing to make that happen?”
“Was I seriously awake at, let’s see, one
sixteen a.m. and attempting to discern the national origin of
the woman getting plowed next door?”

Simon is just, to quote a famous song - "Just a hunk-a-hunk-a-burnin-love"!!
He is sexy, funny, sweet, clever and - a great lay!

The first 35% of this book is quite possibly the funniest things I've ever listened to.

The middle (35-70%) is the "Serious with a side of comedy" part.

The last 30% was funny, by seemed a bit repetative. I think because I was listening to it, the repetition was worse. You can't skim when you are listening!

I absolutely loved the last chapter though, I mean - I was actually driving down the motorway doing a little sitting down jig! You'll get this when you read it!

Overall, I'd give this 4 stars and recommend it to people who are looking for a break from the heavy angst-filled NA novels that are flooding us right now.

Great job Alice!!

About the Author

Alice Clayton is a novelist with an unholy love for her KitchenAid mixer. Making her home in St Louis, she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up afterwards, and is trying desperately to get her long time boyfriend to make her an honest woman. Hi sweetie!!

After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and national educator for a major cosmetics company, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career, writer. Combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, The Redhead Series.

Alice has penned three novels, The Unidentified Redhead,The Redhead Revealed, and coming soon in November 2012, Wallbanger. She thinks you should purchase them immediately. She’s not kidding, not even a little bit. Everyone needs some comedic erotica in their lives. She is hard at work on the third book in The Redhead Series, set to release in Spring of 2013, continuing the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace.

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast, make sure you check them out at or over on iTunes. 3 women rushing towards their forties still acting like teenagers. A saucy little mix of sex, love, relationships, pop cultural, celebrity gossip and All Things Jake Ryan.

Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Mary’s, 8 hours of sleep, and a good pounding.

Finally Alice would also like all her readers and listeners to help her convince Mt. Alice that the only other thing that would make her truly happy is finally bringing home a Bernese Mountain Dog. She is totally serious. And done talking about herself in the third person…
