I got introduced to Steph from my good friend Heather. (Thank You Heather!) She had told me about Steph and that she was going to be debuting her book last year & I instantly fell in love with her & the book!

So proud of Steph & her accomplishments with pursuing her dreams of writing novels. Her books have a great sense of humor & romance that make you fall in love with the characters.

Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn't beg for his attention.

He wanted her.

Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings.

She wanted him.

Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires.

Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them.

They want each other.
But love in the city is never quite that easy.

I totally fell in love with Carter Jennings the moment I read him in the 1st Chapter! And then I fell in love with Carter over and over and over again throughout the entire book!

8.......26..........200.............. <<<<<------- Once you read this it will make sense.

WOW! Loved loved loved this book!! Steph Nuss totally has a style of writing that while reading makes you feel like you are right there with her characters. I especially loved that this story was set in my hometown of NYC! I totally pictured every area of where Elly & Carter where in New York!

We start off with how Elly & Carter met in college. Carter is totally smitten with Elly & the two become best of friends right away! Their sexual tension they have in their inner monologues of what they are feeling but not saying to one another had me cracking up & sometimes yelling at them to just go ahead and make it happen!

You want to know what happens? You have to read to find out if it ever happens or not!

Steph Nuss introduces us to Elly & Carters friends who will make appearances into the other books in this series that will come out. They are hilarious bunch! Totally reminded me of FRIENDS, SEX & THE CITY & GOSSIP GIRL all rolled into one.

Fletcher: Damn! I want a Fletcher! He just is all sorts of scrumptious. I have my suspicions on what I want to happen with his character but I will patiently wait to see how Ms. Nuss plays it out. (Please let him be with......) I won't spoil it!

There are tons of movie and T.V. references in this book which make it fun to read. I totally had moments thinking and of course saying out loud "OMG yes like totally!" And the food references too had me LOL and realizing I ate a lot of the same stuff in college too! JUNK FOOD rules!

This book just totally had me. It reminded me of back in my college days, you meet so many interesting people, then there was always that one person that gets away from you and you get a second chance in the present to find them again.

Elly & Carter's story is just that. Second chances can happen when you least except it and you can have a chance to finally stop thinking "WHAT IF?" and just go for it! They do encounter some hard obstacles that test how much they are willing to fight for each other. It is never easy and Do they work it out? Again, you have to read this story to find out.

I highly recommend reading this book and making sure to follow everything STEPH NUSS!

I'm totally excited to read what happens next in this Series & get more adventures of all these wonderful characters Steph has created!

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.
