Playing house was never so much fun - or so confusing. With her boss on an extended 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. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!
Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends' romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing - but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA Today best-selling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!
RUSTY NAILED is the second instalment in Alice Clayton’s contemporary adult Cocktail romance series that began with Wallbanger.
The story continue with the relationship between Caroline and Simon, but now they have to have work issues to deal with it, like Caroline’s expanding interior design position within her best friend’s firm and Simon’s busy life as a globetrotting photographer.
But also their friends make me laugh, now Mimi and Ryan are engaged but Neil and Sophia ending their relationship but they make the other jealous by bringing hotter, smarter dates and try to steal the show, that make me laugh!!!
The couple learns more about each other and their witty banter is funny and realistic. And of course we have a misunderstanding plus the lack of communication lead to a disaster.
I’m missing something in this story, I was expecting a little more, this second part is good but lack something maybe the sexual innuendos that we enjoy in Wallbanger, here is missing, so that was a bummer… but I recommend this audiobook, the narrator is good and often make me laugh.
Now we have wait to the third installment to the Cocktail series, Screwdrivered.
