Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

15858248 “In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.”

The Good: In good Alice Clayton fashion, the book is hilarious. Her writing style is well defined and if you have read from Mrs. Clayton before, you won’t be disappointed. Her new heroine, Caroline Reynolds is a confident young professional with an equally confident and gracious neighbor, Mr. Wallbanger aka Simon Parker. Light romantic comedy with lots of cat interaction. Highly recommended to all cat lovers.

The Bad: While there was a lot of flirting and teasing, the real romance didn’t come until the last few chapters in the book. I would have loved to see more of it earlier on. There was really not defined conflict on the plot, which was a little bit disappointing.

The Ugly: I know this was supposed to be funny but having a cat that (almost) talks was a little over the top. I have had cats before so I do know that cats are really smart and they do have their own personalities but I thought Clive (the cat) was a little over done. Not a deal breaker but just had to mention it because I did roll my eyes while I was reading it. I was also turned off by the reference of O (you will find out- don’t want to spoil it for you) it was border line immature yet amusing.

All in all, I recommend this book to all romantic comedy lovers. Get your copy at Amazon or Barnes & Noble
