Thump thump.
What the…
❝Oh, God, that’s so good!


First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above. Here are the rules:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Please comment below or tag me in the post, so I can check it out!

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton: Amazon

NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL & USA TODAY bestselling indie author Alice Clayton delights readers with the sexy, laugh-out-loud romance of Caroline and Simon in Wallbanger, the first book in the Cocktail series!

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. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly…

In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.


Wallbanger was hilarious! I did a buddy read with my real life bestie and we couldn’t stop talking to each other about this book, and to this day, we still discuss it! The text messages and inner monologues will have you rolling with laughter! And Simon!!!! SWOOON This book was fast-paced LOL goodness!

    Isn’t this fun? This was my first book from her as well. I think It might also have been my first, true romantic comedy!
