Reviews of Clayton's Previous Books:
Wallbanger (#1) -- Kame
This is somewhere between a 3 1/2 and 4 for me...
Caroline and Simon have eased into a relationship, but where will their lives take them...
Normally when you read a sequel to a book with characters you love you come out loving them more - well that was not the case for me with this one. I do love Caroline and Simon but reading about their day to day life brought no closure for me, and it definitely did not bring me to love them more. If anything I sort of found the book boring and their friends annoying.
Did Caroline and Simon have some great banter - oh yes - they give great banter. Did I laugh out loud a few times - yes. What didn't happen was growth of the characters; when we left them in Wallbanger they both needed some emotional growth to move towards life as a couple and while they physically spent time together at the end of the book I did not feel they were at an emotional place that gave me the warm fuzzies that a HEA was possible. Simon showed me the greatest growth and revealed so much more of himself than he had in Wallbanger. Unfortunately this was a single POV book and it was Caroline's so I really missed Simon's POV.
I am on the fence if I will read the next book. I paid over my comfort zone for this book and wished I had found a way to loan it instead. The $7+ I spent was way too much for the story I read and the next in the series is priced similarly - I might not take the chance twice.
3 1/2 - 4 STARS!

Thanks for the review, Kame! :) Ouch! $7 for an ebook? Why do publishers/authors do that? *sigh* I'm sorry that hear this one did not live up to the expectations of the first book. Perhaps the next one will be better? And wait for it to go on sale?
Have you read Alice Clayton before? Also, what is the most you will pay for an ebook?
Until Next Time,
