In this sequel to Wallbanger, the second book in the Cocktail series, fan favorites Caroline and Simon negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in San Francisco.
Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much travelling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?
USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy cocktail of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

I love Wallbanger much, MUCH ! The sequel...this one? For me , it was a tie! Both , REALLY funny.... really REALLY HOT ( like Simon-hot?! ) ... the writing.. really REALLY engaging and extremely entertaining!
I never got bored or strayed away ( not even once! ) while reading this book. In fact my eyes were glued...fixed.. cemented... unto Simon's uhmmm, hammer ( Hammer time , baby!! ) and tool belt?! ( with nothing but his tool belt!! ) Oh , don't forget his.... drill bit!! I bet you are sweating ( panting?! ) right now?! Hah! I can't blame you ladies... because Wallbanger was a sight to behold! ( and to-drool-for?! hee hee! )
" His face was sun-kissed from the days spent on the ocean, with the tiniest of freckles here and there. Fucking gorgeous man. And the best part? The way he looked at me. Like I was the prettiest girl in the room"
Sun-kissed. Tiniest freckles. Here and there?! Like , Simon's sexiest "here and there" parts?!! F@cking gorgeous man!!!!!
Arrghhh! Lucky. Lucky. Lucky Caroline !! Now that, Simon was already her boyfriend?! Yes. Boyfriend?! And she said it's HARD to be Simon's girl?! Hard. Simon... in one sentence? I can think of more.... "creative ways to say that! Hah! So, why is it hard again, Caroline?
"And shit. that was hard. Because it is incredibly difficult to get out of bed every morning when you have a rumpled Wallbanger holding on to your pajamas. Because , and I say this with pride, his favorite position remained whichever one I was in when he was inside me. "
Whichever. One. I. Was . In. When . He. Was . Inside . Me. <------ Pffft! Hard, huh?! Or....
And. take note , holding on pajamas is not the only thing Wallbanger is good at ! Think : Teeth and Panties in the same sentence. Ooooh.. now I can see you grinning! hah!
" ...when he bent over the back of the sofa inside my apartment and removed my panties. With his teeth.
With his mother-loving teeth! I can't even! "
" Romance novels, schmomamce novels , here's how Wallbanger does it. "
