Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton | 4 Star Book Review

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!

A great way to wrap up a well loved Wallbanger. Rusty Nailed wrapped Simon and Caroline's story up seamlessly in the tradition Clayton way. We [the readers] are able to learn about Simon's past, which he has been very secretive about, and get to be the fly on the wall as their relationship ebbs and flows with their demanding careers. 
Rusty Nailed is a bit lighter on the humor, still funny mind you, a lot lighter on the Clive, but still funny and a fantastic read. Clive still has a story line, but it is closer to the end. Don't worry, it is kinda epic how it all ends.
