In this sequel to Wallbanger, the second book in the Cocktail series, fan favorites Caroline and Simon negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in San Francisco.

Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much travelling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?

I loved this book!
We continue where we left off in Wallbanger (Book#1) with Simon and Caroline still going strong after their roller coaster of becoming a couple.
This story continues with their relationship going through more life turning events that make you wonder, is Caroline now the one who can't commit?  
Simon is now the one home all the time while Caroline is becoming the workaholic.  I liked how the roles reversed with these 2.  And of course we can't forget Clive (the kitty cat)!  He had me cracking up on how he totally knows how to control Simon & Caroline with what he wants :)
Tons of hot steamy scenes in this book as expected from Mrs. Clayton!  You will not be disappointed. I love the sexy talk between Simon & Caroline.  Simon knows how to make Caroline come out of her shell.

Kitchen counters are fun!

I now can't look at a tool belt on a guy the same way again & I love it! Simon is just one hot sexy man!  It's Hammer time!
I was laughing out loud and totally enjoyed reading about their friends Neil & Sophia.  Their interactions had me rolling & going OMG no way!  
This book did not disappoint & I am looking forward to the next book in this series!
Go get this book! 
Make sure to read WALLBANGER before you read this book otherwise you will be lost.
