BLOG TOUR: Rusty Nailed (Cocktail #2) – Alice Clayton + Review!

Released: June 24th, 2014

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?

USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy cocktail of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!
"But now, as I turned to look out over this quiet space, inside, full of nooks and crannies to nap and bathe and run and play, I realized that this was a great adventures as well."

Alice Clayton returns in Rusty Nailed with a hilarious novel starring our favorite duo – the smoking hot free-lance photographer, Simon "Wallbanger" Parker, and the fabulous, KitchenAid Mixer lover, Caroline Reynolds. Here, they face much more mature problems about commitment, relationships, friendships, and most importantly, the future. As the stakes are higher with their love for each other, they risk so much more to lose, but everything would be worth it in the end.

AAAAAH, HE'S BACK, LADIES!!! Goddamn, Lord knows I love how much I love my Wallbanger. Although I must admit it wasn't as funny as Wallbanger (because wow nothing can beat that, okay, like ever), but this sequel was just fantastic!

Simon is still same old, same old. But, of course, he matures significantly in this novel. We see as he faces his past once and for all and is getting ready to really build a life with Caroline. He becomes super sweet and even schmexier. Despite his maturity, he's still got his Wallbanger traits.

He bent over the back of the sofa inside my apartment and removed my panties. With his Teeth.
With his mother-loving teeth! I can’t even!
Romance novels, schmomance novels, here’s how Wallbanger does it.
Holy. Shit.

Yes, please, baby.

Anyway, while Simon's ready to settle down, Caroline's work is becoming more and more intense. Jillian's away on her undecided-end-date honeymoon, thus she is taking over for the meantime and that meant no more free-time, skipping lunches, and locking up the office everyday. With everything going on and Simon getting on her nerves (mainly because she panics in her head), Caroline becomes more worried with each day.

However, in spite of all their differences and conflicts, they're still the same couple we all know and love.

“Responsive, aren’t you?” he murmured, raising his head and wickedly licking his lips. I threaded my hands through his hair and not so gently pushed him back down.
“If you stop now I’ll kill you with this egg timer,” I managed.
Ah don't you feel the love in the air?

Novelist Alice Clayton makes her home in St. Louis where she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up after, and is trying desperately to get her long-time boyfriend to make her an honest woman–and please buy her a Bernese Mountain dog.
After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and educator, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career: author. Having never written anything longer than a grocery list, she soon found writing to be the creative outlet she’d been missing since walking away from the theater 10 years before.

She has a great time combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, and she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, the first two installments of The Redhead Series–The Unidentified Redhead and The Redhead Revealed. Her latest novel Wallbanger is a return to her trademark comedic erotica, or funny smut, that Alice has become known for.

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother’s Podcast (check them out on iTunes) and has recently partnered with actor Greg Grunberg, blogger Brittany Gibbons, and actress Keili Lefkovitz on a new travel show that will begin filming in January.

Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Marys, eight hours of sleep and a good pounding.
