2nd review, not really happy with it. Clicked on something and lost it all and had to rewrite from memory. Wasn't going to write anything but wanted to share some of my thoughts.

So I did not heed the advice and started this at night and it was a very bad idea. The book is too funny to read when other's are sleeping. You could wake the dead with the very loud laughter this book elicits.

The protagonist Clive is smart, adorable and a badass protector of his people. He loves to have fun, but is also very responsible when it comes to his woman. No man messes with his woman and gets away unscathed. His isn't the one woman kind, but never forgets the one that's always been there. Clive loves to relax and watch over his neighborhood. No need for a guard dog with Clive around.

What? Clive isn't the protagonist? Then who the hell is? Read the book and please let me know. LOL

It was very refreshing being in Caroline's head. Caroline Reynolds is pass her low self-image days, she knows she hot (she's not vain) and can catch the eye of a guy without trying. She's witty, sassy, and as crass as a lady could be. She has a great life, career, and great friends. Caroline moves into her new apartment and had the unfortunate luck (not too sure about that) of having a very noisy neighbor. Her neighbor Simon partakes in nightly extra-curricular activities that keeps her awake but entertained at the same time. Caroline jokingly coins Simon as Wallbanger. Caroline has lost her O and Wallbanger's, very healthy sex life was interfering with her mission to get it back. Caroline and Simon meet and things got even more interesting, funny, and freaking hot.

Oh, Simon Parker, yummy. A lover not a fighter, cheesy, I know. Even with his many sexcapades, you can't help going crazy over Simon. He wasn't a jerk, or a 'manhore' by any means. He had his reasons for his flourishing sex life and he plays no games. He and Caroline had it out with a thin bedroom wall coming between their thick sexual tension when around each other. They had to come to an agreement on how to deal with their situation. It helped learning about Simon's past to understand how it shaped him into the person he is now.

Funny as hell, with a cast of shameless characters. Very steamy and good story. Loved the texting conversations, and the road trip internal monologue. Very, very funny. Still need to know who is the heroine or hero of the book if it's not Clive.

I really enjoyed reading this story. I will say don't judge a book its cover or title. Yes the title is a bit of the joke behind the story. Simon is ultimate bbf. He is funny, sexy, well traveled, and so much more. Carolyn is a great lead female character. She is charming, quick witted and a blast to learn more about. The sexual tension between these two can be felt throughout the story. Each page your turn you expect to find them in bed. However, this is not your typical 4 chapters in the couple is going at it. The author really develops the relationship and you are dying to see what happens next.

I really did love this story but was disappointed when I went to buy book 2 Rusted Nail to find out it 7.99 for the book. Yes I love a good romance and 9 times out 10 will be an entire series but to buy the next few books at the price just seems high for an ebook. ( )

3.75 stars but since there are no form of half stars I always round up. I loved how easy this book was to read. Fun and sassy, I loved the banter between the two characters. I also really loved that this wasn't a romance that had these two getting it on in every room from the very beginning. The story was allowed to develop, the characters were allowed to get to know one another. My only problems were how matchy matchy the other characters were, and that the end had no great last hurdle for the characters to overcome. I know what the "climax" of the book was supposed to be, but it did feel too easy. Still, I recommend this book. ( )

I was so engrossed in this book, that I have a burnt arm and legs to prove it. This was such a easy and enjoyable read. It was so addictive that I just had to keep reading it to find out what would happen next.
Nothing is amiss in the Wallbanger; it has it all. I was laughing, crying and feeling the emotions of Catherine and Simon. Nothing in life is easy, including love. But the journey along the way can be very interesting.
Wallbanger is light hearted fun and a must read. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"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."--Page 4 of cover.… (more)
