Alice Clayton - Wallbanger
Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O. Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and--was that a meow?--punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O. Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick... In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.

Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn't always the best idea. Especially when "Show her your penis" is the first "to-do" item...

Van, aki mindenáron megtenne valamit, és van, aki teljesen tehetetlen. Legtöbbjük boldog szeretne lenni. És mindannyiuknak megvan a saját meséje, még ha nem is mindig igaz teljesen, néha pedig csak úgy megtörténik az emberrel.

Alice Clayton - Faldöngető
Caroline Reynolds magáénak tudhat egy fantasztikus, új lakást San Franciscóban, egy irigylésre méltó háztartási robotgépet... O-t viszont nélkülözni kénytelen (és itt most nem Oprah-ról van szó, kedves olvasók). Tervezői karrierje felfelé ível, irodája a kikötőre néz, egy bombasztikus cukkini kenyér receptje is az övé... de O-nak se híre, se hamva. Ott van neki Clive (a világ legaranyosabb cicája), a jó barátok, egy hatalmas ágy, csak O nem. Azóta, hogy beköltözött új lakásába, az O nélküliség állapotát szexuálisan túlfűtött szomszédja tetőzi be, aki éjnek évadján olyan hangos faldöngetésben részesíti, amilyet még sosem hallott. Minden nyögés, náspángolás és... ez csak nem egy nyávogás volt? ...hangsúlyozza a tényt, hogy nem csupán nem hagyják aludni, de még mindig meg van fosztva..., igen, helyes a tipp: O-tól is. Majd belép a képbe Simon Parker (tényleg, Simon, kérlek, lépj be). Amikor a faldöngetés odáig fajul, hogy jóformán szó szerint kilöki a gazdáját az ágyból, Caroline, arcán kielégületlenséggel, rózsaszín bébidoll pizsamájában végre szemtől szembe kerül már sokszor hallott, de sosem látott szomszédjával. A késő éjjeli ütközet, nos, vegyes érzelmekkel zárul. Hmm! Ilyen vékonyka falak mellett, a feszültség bizony hatalmas… Incselkedés, gúnyos megjegyzések, forró fürdőben lubickoló cicalányok a gyönyörű San Franciscó-i ég alatt – és ráadásként a legszexisebb almás pite, amely valaha készült. Mindez ott rejtőzik ebben az érzéki, szellemes, romantikus mesében.
