    5 HUGE STARSLOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK EVERYONE HAS TO READ ITThis book was brilliantPure goldI’m in love with Simon Completely utterly in loveMy cheeks ache from laughingMy heart is happyDid I mention I love this book? This book was pure decadent lighthearted un put downable FUN A well written perfect blend of all things happy romantic sweet funny hilarious really melty swoony witty steamy with just enough tender deeper moments to make my heart squeeze I fell in love with everything – the characters the writing the story and Clive The most awesome cat ever to grace the pages of a novelIt was just one winning line after another I swear to freaking God than half my book is highlighted No joke The banter The chemistry The flirting The texts melt The nooking The wooing this book is just loaded with win I read most of it with a big stupid grin plastered on my face and pretty much just alternated between squeeing squealing giggling snorting crying shaking and cackling with laughterWhat’s this book about though? Now usually I write my own descriptions but I love the official blurb too much so here it is 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 OAdding 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 OEnter 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 Simon “Wallbanger” Parker Cocky charming sexy as all hell confident and once we got to know him better sweep you off your feet swoony I adored him its that simple He has made me list of top book boyfriends ever I loved that his character had depth At first you kind of wondered if he was just a bit of a manwhore but I loved that there was a whole background to him And its hard not to love a man who is obsessed with baked goods “You want me to cut you a piece — okay or you could just do that” I frowned as he took a giant bite out of the end“Thif if mine righ?” he asked spraying crumbs“How do you function in normal society?” I asked shaking my head as he took another monster bite I loved Caroline too She was sweet yet feisty and refreshingly direct about everything Brain Heart Nerves Backbone and of course O were brilliant additions to the storyI loved how casually Simon and Caroline’s relationship developed They were seriously one of the sweetest couples ever but there was no falling into bed on first sight for them “Now you listen mister” I said trying for a adult tone “I’m not going to spend every night listening to you try to crash your girl’s head through my wall with the force of your dick alone No way buddy” They went from cockblockerwallbanger to truce status to friends to lovers The whole process just warmed my heart And throw in a healthy dollop of sexual tension and innuendos out the wazoo and you pretty much have a recipe for awesome “I like that we’re taking things slow You give good woo” I whispered I never once felt any urges to throttle a character or yell at them no eye rolling Nothing I was just one purely satisfied reader Oh and “Simon goes commando God bless America”Flaily Pink Nightie Girl and Mr Wallbanger Snorey Pants will always have a special place in my heart 3 Guys READ THIS BOOK CASTING see above and belowFor of my reviews visit Aestas Book BlogAnd come join the Aestas Book Blog Facebook Page
