If you’re a fan of unlikely beginnings, you’ll love Wallbanger by Alice Clayton. It’s a mix of both steamy and silly, filled with some seriously “wallbanging” moments. Follow Caroline as she navigates a new neighbor who can’t help but get loud—every. Single. Night.

From the Back Cover: “The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she’s gaining an—um—intimate knowledge of her new neighbor’s nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed “dating hiatus,” and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise.”
