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.
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
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.

AUTHOR: Alice Clayton
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Okay. I don't know if this is just me but this usually happens when I read funny books. They make me LOL so hard at the beginning that it gets tedious after awhile.
Then this book became as cheesy as what I expected towards the end. I enjoyed the storyline, thought it was really really silly. Reminded me NOT to ever move in one of San Francisco's apartments, because this book just ruined the city for me. Two financially able professionals living in apartments with walls so thin you can hear wallbanging from both sides.. Huh. Not for me.
But then.. there was Clive. Haven't I told you yet how much I adore Clive? I swear, he's a human pretending to be a cat! He's a good scene stealer btw!
Would have given this book lesser rating if not for the LOL moments I've had. Overall, I enjoyed the book but not enough to give it five stars.
