Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

3 1/2 to 4 stars

There's no doubt Wallbanger is a fun, delightful, moderately sexy, feel-good read that bordered on the ANNOYING. There were times I felt like wallbanging my head against the wall with the amount of unresolved sexual tension this poor couple was put through. Geez! This particular aspect of the story became so frustrating.

I enjoyed getting to know the two main characters, Simon and Caroline. They were endearing, playful–maybe a little immature for their ages–but very likable characters. Their fun and witty banter and developing friendship was what I loved the most about this book.

I can't end this review without a SHOUT-OUT to Clive, the cat. Oh, boy, could that cat be in the wrong place at the wrong time! Understatement of the century! But, I loved his involvement in the story. At times I felt the cat actually eclipsed the two main leads. I love when an author has the ability to make an animal an intricate part of the plot.

Other than my previously mentioned annoyances, I had a blast reading this book. If you're looking for a simple, fun, and engaging afternoon read, you'll probably enjoy this one.
