They stood out in my memory as being one of my favorite couples for their witty banter and humorous antics. Unfortunately, I think that I let too much time pass and the novelty has worn off.
Admittedly, I did skip ahead in this series. I never took the time to read the second, third or fourth books in the series, which were the spin-off stories of their frie It has been a long time since I read 'Wallbanger', but I was looking forward to seeing what the future held in store for Caroline and Simon.
I never took the time to read the second, third or fourth books in the series, which were the spin-off stories of their friends. That proved to be somewhat important to fully enjoy this book. I thought that I could just skip the friends' stories to get back to Simon and Caroline, I was wrong. Their friends and their relationships proved to me a significant part of this story. Despite feeling lost for the first quarter or so of the book - totally my fault - I did enjoy this book as a whole.
Once the focus shifted from the friends to Caroline and Simon, I found myself enjoying the tamer version of the couple that I remembered. The dynamics of their relationship were greatly changed, from adversarial to blissfully happy, but it was sweet.
All in all, it was a nice, sweet book. It had the feel of an extended epilogue for Simon, Caroline and their friends, providing closure and the HEAs that readers crave. There was nothing that ripped my heart out or made me feel intense emotions, but it was nice. Sometimes, you just need a nice, predictable read with a HEA. This book delivered on that account. View all 38 comments. I have truly LOVED the "Wallbanger" series and although this last book wraps up everything nicely for Simon, Caroline, their friends, and Clive, I am so very sad to have to say goodbye to these wonderful characters that will forever have a piece of my heart.
I can't count how many times I busted out laughing so hard my sides hurt and a couple of times I even shed a few tears. Caroline and Simon's closest friends are starting to settle down. Ryan and Mimi are getting married. Sophie and Neil are expecting their first child.
Viv and Clark have a son and another baby on the way. The two are starting to think of the future and what their next step should be.
I love how Alice Clayton can write about a subject that is out of every day life and make it so incredibly funny but meaningful as well. We all did or will go through this process where we witness our friends from our youths getting married and starting families and I tell you at times it's surreal. I could relate to Caroline so well in this book. Simon was as usual, incredibly sexy and just damn near perfect. I loved Caroline's strength and her ability to see what was truly important and I admired her in the end.
AND, thank you Ms Clayton for the honorable mentions of my other two favorite characters that you created in the "Redhead" series!! I got extremely giddy when references were made to Jack Hamilton and Grace Sheridan!!
It was like sticking a pretty bow on top of a beautifully wrapped present!! If you haven't read the Wallbanger series, I would be very shocked and also would highly recommend picking this one up! It's guaranteed to make you laugh out loud and delivers just the right amount of steam. View all 94 comments.
Apr 05, Christy rated it really liked it. It was sweet, sassy, sexy and funny just like the original! Not only is it a wonderful conclusion to Caroline and Simons story, but you lots from the other characters and whats going on in their lives as well!
Everyones lives seem to be moving forward. Some friends are getting married, some friends are having babies, but what is to come of Simon and Caroline? Neither one ever thought they would be the marrying type, the lets settle dow 4 stars! Neither one ever thought they would be the marrying type, the lets settle down and pop out some babies type, but things change.
People change. Will things for this couple change?
I love their back and forth banter and their humor. This novella was definitely a win for me. It reminded me of all the reasons I loved the first book so much. I always felt like Wallbanger ended a little too quickly with no real epilogue, so thank you Alice Clayton for giving us this treat!
View all 36 comments. Simon and Caroline will always be one of my favorite book couples!! The truth is I really missed them and I was so glad when I saw this book!! I loved the way Simon and Caroline's story ended! It was absolutely fantastic!! Just like the previous books in this series, this one is funny, sexy, sweet and so swoony!!!
Caroline and Simon continue their life with their friends. First we have Mimi's wedding and then Sophia's baby. With all this happening around them, Caroline starts to wonder if she wants to go in for the next level of her relationship with Simon.
This finally happens and Caroline and Simon get engaged. But when an unexpected accident happens.. Caroline will start to think what is really important for her.. I don't know where to start.. Mimi and Ryan, Sophia and Neil, I loved seeing them be happy all together!
Caroline with Simon are more in love than ever! Their relationship is of the charts!! I loved their playful, funny and sexy moments!!! I couldn't stop smiling and swooning all the time!!! And of course I can't forgot Clive and his girls: I am very sad that this series has finally come to an end. A fantastic series that everybody should read!!! If you are looking for something funny and sweet this is exactly what you need!!! Oct 01, Catarina rated it really liked it Shelves: And then begin the weeding preparations… that makes everyone especially the mothers go crazy and somewhere along the craziness they begin the loose perspective in what is really important.
This was a romantic, sexy and absolutely hilarious short story, just as Alice Clayton got us used to. An amazing end to this series! View all 8 comments. Jan 06, Wendy'sThoughts rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Alice Clayton Fans, Romance. I love Simon I mean I really love Simon But because I am a grown-up and understand I cannot have everything I want in life I was very pleased to know he was in good hands with the woman he fell for, Caroline.
Not only was she devoted to him and appreciated him for who he was In other words I could deal because I felt all was ok in their world. One of the other things I loved about Simon's new life was all the interaction of friends New relationships were formed Well, it has been a while and all of these couples have been growing People are having babies Caroline and Simon are there This book has it all There is banter, snark and out and out giggles There are set ups during weddings and birthing which ring true from real life Clayton has a way with pacing and giving you just enough of the sweet and balances out with the real.
Her characters have epiphanies I have read many "last books of series" This was just like Simon for me It also had Clive making sure everyone stayed on their A game He is the Man For more Reviews, Free E-books and Giveaways.

This couple started off Alice Clayton 's Cocktail series with the first installment: Wallbanger which remains my personal favorite of the series BTW , and they've proved in this novella that they still have amazing chemistry together.
Last Call was funny, sexy, and surprisingly emotional as a major event had me holding my breath in suspense. Overall, a very enjoyable revisit with memorable characters in an even more memorable series.
Check it out! My favorite quote: No one ever tells you to remember these moments. To try and replay and re-create the last time you see someone. Everything is going wonderfully for the Wallbanger and his Nightie Girl but it's hard not to get caught up in their friend's whirlwinds.
I do admit that I read the first book of this series just because I had heard it was a Twilight fan fiction. So, I was thrilled with AC's dedication to all things Edward!
Edward Cullen. It certainly doesn't make things better that it's only a novella. But hats off to AC for making it end so well We get updates on everyone and I do mean everyone! Couples getting married to couples not getting married That's right And even taking that next step That is, until Simon goes on a working trip to Vietnam.
But as always, things work out for the best I loved how everything came together for Simon and Caroline. And the ending? You want to tell me something? Funny story. View all 31 comments. As usual studly Clive cracks me up! Simon is up to his wallbanging ways as usual.
The book is Alice Clayton at her best.
Full of humor and hotness! It was a great end to a fantastic series. I really enjoyed all the books, but still my 1 favorite thing about this series is my sweet, sexy, loveable View all 15 comments. Sexy, romantic, funny - just adorable!! I will miss Simon so much!!! So sad that it's over now - but I can't wait what Alice will come up with next: Jun 27, Christine Alibutud marked it as to-read.
I'm such a sucker for a perfect happy ending and this one was simply darling Caroline and Simon have happily settled into their new home and everything is going well, until it seems like life around them is moving at a very fast pace. Their close friends are either getting married or having babies and Caroline starts to wonder if Simon and her are ready to head in that direction too. This very funny story is about being in love but sometimes getting too caught up with the little things in life and missing out on the big picture, the important things in life that sometimes we take for granted.
So ladies and gentleman Alice Clayton has done it again, delivering a super romantic story loaded with all her signature characters in a hilarious plot where even the pets are awesome. Great Little book no one should miss out View all 12 comments. I was so happy to know what Clive was up to.
The story was Hilarious, romantic and sweet. I only have one complaint. Alice xoxo prologue A starry night. A lady in white. A shoe full of fright. This is the beginning of the end of this love story.
Where girls are beautiful and boys are handsome and cats are rock stars. Where friendships endure and relationships mature. Skirts are flippy and emotions are trippy and everyone gets a happy ending.
Zoom in on happy couples. Zoom in on love everlasting. Zoom in on a chapel. This is the way the story ends. Not with a whimper, but with a bang. This is so bad. We have to fix this before—shit. But if you do ever vomit on a wedding gown, make sure the bride is the perfect mix of anal-retentive, hyper planner, and fairy-tale whimsical.
Mimi was a type A personality with a side of Disney. Custom made. One for the ceremony, one for the reception. So when one was defiled by semidigested corn flakes, and I mean defiled, she went into crisis-averting mode and immediately pronounced herself a genius for having the foresight to purchase two gowns. Reception gown became main event gown, and all was peaceful in the land of tulle and lace. Until we realized that there were also semidigested corn flakes splattered across her Jimmy Choo bridal shoes.
And maybe a flake or two inside as well. I held Mimi back, but barely. She was strong for only being ninety-eight pounds. I get a whiff of perfume—which smells lovely by the way, great choice—I throw up. Sophia made the most stunning pregnant woman ever created. We were all in agreement on this. Her skin glowed, her hair was luxurious, her eyes sparkled, and her tits were even more fantastic.
Or a garbage can. Or a potted plant. Or the gutter outside her apartment—I was present for that one. Left hand arranged over right, not an accident. She took every opportunity to show off her new engagement ring. As well she should; it was incredible. Rumor has it Neil needed a crane to lift it and get it on her finger. She had currently assumed this defensive position, complete with wide eyes and innocent expression, and blingy bling, as I wrestled with the bride, who was envisioning her carefully orchestrated wedding crashing down around her ears.
Which were flaming red; she was really steamed. Backup Choos? What the hell am I going to wear on my feet? Who was currently auditioning to play the part of Mary, before they got to the inn. Can we stop all the vomit talk? By the way?
I only wear a size seven. As I was mentally calculating how fast I could get to the closest high-end department store, there was a knock on the door. Had I forgotten to mention that? I just wanted to say. The girls are in here. Ryan chuckled on the other side of the door. I just, wanted to tell you that.
She turned back to us, her eyes bright. Because who the hell cares. And just like that, Sophia was back in the wedding party. Crisis averted, the wedding went off without a hitch. No more vomit, lots of laughter, and lots of tears. And one pair of perfectly pedicured feet dancing down the aisle toward the groom. The fact that she was barefoot? Her smile?
Evident from outer space. The ceremony was brief by Roman Catholic standards, and beautiful. And speaking of beautiful. I would never get tired of looking at Simon Parker in a tuxedo. Especially at the end of an aisle. Not going to lie, it gave me thoughts. Especially when during the ceremony he caught my eye more than once. Sometimes we simply grinned, enjoying the moment with our friends. Sometimes he looked thoughtful, as weddings tend to make everyone think about the future and the past.
In case that was in any way unclear. As the happy couple made their way down the aisle to applause and well-wishers, Neil followed with his very pregnant girlfriend, Sophia. Then Simon stepped down the few altar steps, slipped my hand into his arm, and walked me down the aisle as well.
Amply displayed. Mimi liked a low-cut dress on her ladies in waiting.
