MY FEEEELINGS: 🙂
THIS BOOK. *sigh* ok. I’m good now. This book was seriously sent from the gods of laughter, and they have a DARN GOOD sense of humor. Let’s just start by saying that if I wasn’t spending my time cheering on Simon+Caroline, I was laughing my ass off.
SERIOUSLY. I’m laughing right now just thinking about the book 🙂 If you’re a person who loves a good comedy, pick this book up right now because it is definitely one of the funniest, most hilarious books I have EVER read.
Ok, so let’s start off with the whole wallbanging. LOL. I fell in love with Caroline the first time she started getting annoyed. AND then, her nicknames for Simon’s gals, and the “O”. Omg. And then like that wasn’t enough, there was Purina and Clive(who is btw the best cat ever!)…the list goes on and on.
As for the characters, Caroline and Simon are seriously one of the BEST COUPLES EVAR. Throughout the book, I felt like they understood each other really well, even when they were friends, and their progress to more than cockblocker/wallbanger was really solid, believable, and amazing to witness. There was wasn’t a LOT of tension between them at any point, and I found that great because their movie nights and baking adventure made me straight-up happy ( I mean, yes they had their rough patch, but who doesn’t; (story without frustration=annoyingly sappy story 😉 ) OHH, and their nooking, wooing, wowing, *MELTING*. they were so cute.
He was wooing me. And I was letting him woo. I wanted the woo. I deserved the woo. I needed the wow that would surely follow the woo. But for now, the woo? It was whoa.
Caroline, in her own way was headstrong, knew what she wanted, and had a clear path, which was one of things I really liked about her. AND she was witty, again BEST TRAIT. The conversations between those two? HIL.AR.I.OUS. But their texts? Even better! 🙂 AND Simon? YES PLEASE. Oh gosh darn it. He was one hot boy and I was loving him every second of the book. And when I found out he was photographer *SWOON* HAHA. Yeah. He was just that good.
“Mmm, Caroline, what are you up to?” He smiled.
“I’m up to no good, that’s for sure. ”
“Come into my Tahoe, Simon,” I mumbled incoherently into his mouth.
“Caroline, come into your what? Oh, God.”
I think what I liked most about this book, though, was that it wasn’t overly sentimental, and there was a good balance between the drama and the humor. It was DAMN FUNNY, but it had enough emotional moments to make my heart soar and my stomach drop a little. Seriously, hands-down one of the BEST romances out there. Thank you Alice Clayton for giving me a laugh…for about 2 hours STRAIGHT 😀
a PERFECT 5 for 5 for Wallbanger!
