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?
First, I want to thank every single aspect in this whole world that enable Rusty Nailed to be written. From Alice Clayton (obviously), her parents, grandparents, relatives…okay, EVERYONE. Because I think I just found the love of my life.
Rusty Nailed is the infamous Wallbanger’s sequel, and I’m telling you, if Wallbanger is great, Rusty Nailed is AH-MAH-ZING!
First, let’s talk about this awesome, talented Alice Clayton, because holly molly! She can write like nobody business. Her writing can make you laugh your eyes off, while feeling all lovey dovey with all the steamy
totally not G-rated scenes. It’s witty and gleeful and just simply is a pack of wonderful funny things wrapped together. And I absolutely adore the texts from the characters to each other. Alice Clayton did an amazing job on making them enjoyable and crazingly awesome!
The characters are as awesome as ever! Simon and Caroline’s relationship is still progressing, as they move on to learn how to live as a couple, dealing with their new found love and the world that revolves around them. Their conversations and chemistry, as always, are priceless! And oh boy, the innuendos are straight out hilarious.
“Well, good goddamn, Dr. Phil, color me impressed,” I said, clinking my coffee cup next to his. “So what do we do next? Y’know, as people in a relationship after they’ve resolved a conflict?”
“Pretty sure a blow job should follow this,” he said seriously.
Seriously? This book is one of my favorite NA books. The plot is amazing! Simon and Caroline’s relationship is #goals, and Clive, ahh… Clive who has replaced my childhood cat crush Pete. He is the pure source of awesomeness. He just walked into the book like a boss and literally stole every single reader’s heart!
And as you know, I’m dedicating this week for Love Exclusive Week, so all posts will be love-relate in some way. Working my way to stuff y’all up with the lovey dovey stuff! 😉 ❤
