Melissa's Review:

Caroline Reynolds is an up and coming interior designer. Her boss subleased out her old apartment to Caroline so the beginning of the book is Caroline moving in and getting a feel of her new surroundings. Imagine her surprise when a noisy neighbor starts having a late night wallbanging extravaganza. After several nights of this Caroline is finally fed up and goes to confront the rude guy next door.

Enter Simon Parker, a sexy photographer that likes his harem of ladies and loud wallbanging sessions. The duo have a hate at first sight type of relationship. But when Caroline attends her boss's party and sees Simon, she's forced to play nice. Even more so when her two lady friends have the hots of Simon's two friends.

Since the gang sort of paired off, Simon and Caroline decide a truce is in order. The unlikely duo slowly becomes friends and without realizing you see less and less of Simon's harem. I wasn't sure if he could actually maintain his new lifestyle to say the least.

I figured this book would be nonstop boinking but decided to give it a try anyway since I saw several good reviews for it from blogger friends. I'm so glad I gave it a try! The characters were enjoyable and the author's writing style had little bits of hilarious tossed in that made me giggle while listening in my car. I enjoyed the narrator a lot and hope to have her as the narrator for the next book in the series. I suggest this book if you want a dash of humor in your romance.

  4. "Nonstop boinking..." And... I'm dead. Hahahaha! I don't usually read books like this one, but there have been a few similar series that I've really enjoyed. I just have to be in the right mood. It sounds like this really worked for you though! I'll have to keep it in mind for the next time I'm in the mood for this sort of read! Great review! :D

  7. With the title and the cover, it makes you think boink-fest. When I picked this book up, I thought to add it to my TBR pile, but I opened the book and skimmed the first couple pages... then went back and actually read them. Before I knew it I was on chapter four and completely sucked in. Have you tried Alice Clayton's Redhead series? I got it in audio and laughed so hard I had to pull my car over. If you liked this, you might like them. :)

  8. I read the original book a while back when it was fan-fiction. I think it was called Edward Wallbanger? I don't know. I didn't get a quarter of the way through it before I had to put it down. I didn't like the characters, the pacing, or the writing style. Maybe now that it's been polished by editors and publishers it's better? Did you ever read the original story? I'm wondering how they compare.
