Title: Rusty Nailed
Author: Alice Clayton
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

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?

5 Stars… you bet your sweet bippy ;)

Can I just get something off my chest before I get into how utterly and completely fan-f*cking-tastic this book was? FINALLY we get the next Cocktail book!
Caroline, Sophia, Mimi, Jillian, Simon, Ryan, Benjamin, Neil and Clive are all back in Rusty Nailed. I adore these characters; they come alive and leap off the page, every single one of them. Wallbanger is one of my all time favorite gut busting reads, I laughed so hard I cried in parts and Rusty Nailed put me right back in my happy place, ring side for the hilarity that is The Alice Clayton Show. Alice Clayton writes humour unlike anyone else. Weaving humour, intelligence, and SEXY,  she has a truly unique writing style and the gang is together once again, Rusty Nailed is un-putdownable. I was spellbound. The cat who thinks he’s human (Clive), Caroline and her Kitchen Aid mixer, Sophia and Mimi with their hilarious shenanigans, and the poor men in their lives being drug along for the ride. Rusty Nailed provides The Great Escape, it’s like sinking into a fabulous claw foot tub for a divine bubble bath at the end of a hellish day, or eating warm fresh baked zucchini bread hot from the oven, it just makes you feel happy, and you’ll grin till you face hurts, laugh till your tummy aches, happy.

Alice Clayton is a novelist with an unholy love for her KitchenAid mixer. Making her home in St Louis, she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up afterwards, and is trying desperately to get her long time boyfriend to make her an honest woman. Hi sweetie!!

After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and national educator for a major cosmetics company, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career, writer. Combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, The Redhead Series.

Alice has penned three novels, The Unidentified Redhead,The Redhead Revealed, and coming soon in November 2012, Wallbanger. She thinks you should purchase them immediately. She’s not kidding, not even a little bit. Everyone needs some comedic erotica in their lives. She is hard at work on the third book in The Redhead Series, set to release in Spring of 2013, continuing the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace. 

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast, make sure you check them out at notyourmotherspodcast.com or over on iTunes. 3 women rushing towards their forties still acting like teenagers. A saucy little mix of sex, love, relationships, pop cultural, celebrity gossip and All Things Jake Ryan.

Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Mary’s, 8 hours of sleep, and a good pounding.

Finally Alice would also like all her readers and listeners to help her convince Mt. Alice that the only other thing that would make her truly happy is finally bringing home a Bernese Mountain Dog. She is totally serious. And done talking about herself in the third person…
