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!
FLIRTY AND DIRTY BOOK BLOG’S REIVEW OF RUSTY NAILED BY ALICE CLAYTON
Let me start with that this has been the funniest & sexiest book I have read this year. I enjoyed Wallbanger but this one blew me away. It was such an amazing love story told in such a fun way that had me laughing my ass off and crying the next with how sweet this story was. The friendship of this group is beyond filled with love and drama but i want more. I love this group of friends but lets not forget how this story started….Wallbanger and Nighty girl…..Oh how they come a long way and bless them for such an amazing journey. Simon is still the hottest guy on this planet and how he finally becomes comfortable in his own skin is so sweet to see happen. He goes from globe-trotting all over the world with his camera to wanting to just stay put and feeling out his life. And then we have our leading lady Caroline who is so brilliant with her sass and admitting what is really going on in her pretty little head. I love how this story just picked up where we left off but I have to say it was WAY better. The humor and the story was so well written and I just could not put the book down. I read it in one day. The tale of this couple is so romantic and sexy that we just hope that no drama can shake their world. I kept thinking something crappy was going to happen but you just read how two people just unfold a life that is filled with one leading the other to the unknown of what people think a relationship should be like.Clive ….really, how can a cat play such in important role in a book but he did and well-played Alice….This book was so amazing that I could read it again and again, just for the laughs alone.
BIG ASS 5 STARS – Davetta
Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton My rating: 4 of 5 stars I am so in love with Alice Clayton’s Cocktail series. Rusty Nailed was FABULOUS!!! I am praying that this isn’t the last we see of Caroline “Nightie Girl” Reynolds and Simon “Wallbanger” Parker. I am seriously crushing on both of these characters and am not even close to letting them go yet. Again, I couldn’t put this book down. Alice Clayton sucked me right back into Caroline and Simon’s story and had me in stitches. I nearly woke my husband trying to stifle my laughs. I swear anything to do with the girls and the Sophia and Neil storyline…BANG ON! The banter between the characters is genuine and had me feeling like I had reunited with old friends. Loved where the story went with these two loveable characters navigating this new phase of their lives. I fell in love with Simon a little more in Rusty Nailed, after learning about his past. And Clive, how could I forget Clive. I love this cool cat! This story wouldn’t have been the same without him and I am thrilled that Ms. Clayton gave us more… LOVED the harem! 😉 I have found a new go to author when I am looking for a hilarious, feel-good, sexy read…Alice Clayton. Life has enough ups and downs and it’s great to have found a light read full of story, humour and sexy hot goodness. Can’t wait to see what Alice Clayton has next for us. Nic
