Publisher's Summary

Reunite with Simon and Caroline from the New York Times best-selling Wallbanger in this fun and flirty novella - and hear Simon’s voice for the first time! 

Simon and Caroline have it all. A gorgeous restored Victorian house in Sausalito, flourishing careers, an eternal spark for each other, and a cat with more attitude than is legal in the state of California. 

So what’s plaguing the couple of the century? They’ve got everything anyone could wish for, except...a family. 

After several close calls, Simon and Caroline are coming to terms with the idea that being parents might not be in the cards for them. They’ve been married several years, and they’re realizing it may just be the two of them, forever. Which is okay, right? 

Caroline’s career has taken an intriguing turn, Simon is working more than ever, they’re fresh from a trip across the pond to see their besties Jillian and Benjamin - things are falling into place, without a baby rattle. 

But just when you think your life is set, the universe gives you a...twist. 

Come back in for one more round with Simon and Caroline.

Too many f words

I didn’t get more than 20 minutes in and the f word had been said multiple times. Too bad, could have been a cute story.

5 'Wallbanger forever' stars!

If, like me, you are a mad fan of all things Wallbanger, then this is an absolute must-read for you! A novella which gives us the opportunity to catch up with one of my all-time fave couples, Simon and Caroline, who are living out their happy ever after, but who have one more challenge to face… building their family.

Simon and Caroline are still deeply in love and though they may be living the dream, this is the one part of their life that isn’t going to plan. But you can’t exactly plan this kind of thing, and they have no idea what they’re in for.

This book is equal parts funny and heart-achingly emotional, making me laugh out loud and then hitting me right in the feels. I adored being back with Simon and Caroline, seeing them so happy and so very much in love. Their relationship is the kind that people dream about, solid and committed, full of teasing, banter and jokes, and they are still as hot for each other as they were when they met. Watching them enter this next stage in their relationship is just amazing and I adored every moment of it.

"Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved a boy, and this boy gave her the world."

It’s the story I didn’t even know I wanted for Simon and Caroline, but let’s face it, I’ll read anything with these two in it. The rest of the Cocktail crew are all a part of the story, which was lots of fun, and we even get some Simon POV! And to top off it all off, there’s even an epilogue from Clive the cat. So. Much. Win!

The audiobook is fantastic, narrated by C.J. Bloom and Gregory Salinas. It's a really quick read, coming in at just under three hours, and I highly recommend listening to this one (ebook comes out in December 2020). I'm actually going to do another listen now, it's that good!

I loved everything about this novella – 5 stars!

One More Round

I just did a re-listen of Wallbanger last month I am so glad I did because wow did I ever love this novella!

I love how much these two love each other it is so clear to see. You can’t help but fall even more in love with these characters.

Caroline really got to my heart strings in this, you feel her pain, her panic and her joy.

Simon is so wonderful and again you feel all his emotion especially on that one chapter shudders it was intense.

Great narration 100% would recommend this series.

A Lively Epilogue to Wallbanger

Ive been waiting for a new book by Alice Clayton and to discover that she had written a short story to continue Caroline and Simon’s love story was pure joy. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and read Wallbanger and the sequels many times. But, One More Round, was the perfect ending to a story that created such endearing characters. As with Wallbanger and it’s sequels, this book was so well written. One More Round seamlessly continued Caroline and Simon’s love story with a, “and then this happened” so we have a great ending.

I loved the narration as well. C J Bloom and Gregory Salinas did a great job bringing Caroline and Simon to life. I will definitely look for other books narrated by either of them.

Love love love!!!

I saw this and checked the publish date and realized it was an Alice Clayton I hadn’t read so I automatically downloaded and started listening without even looking at the blurb. I almost squealed when I realized it was Simon and Caroline. It was awesome to revisit the Wallbanger world!

Offensive language!

The language used was horrible and totally unnecessary. The F word was used so often it was offensive. The story would have been greatly improved with out so many swear words. They are so not necessary in literature. Could have been a cute story without them. I will steer clear of all future novels.

Too much swearing

Good short story. Good narration. Funny banter. Imaginative similes. But way too much swearing for my liking. Didn’t add a thing to the story.

Maybe for younger people

Not for me. I would think this was a teenage novel if not for the language.

A Return Trip to Simon & Caroline's Life!

I am a massive fan of the Alice Clayton, Cocktail series, which, if you haven’t read it, is a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy series. This series brought me great reading joy several times, and I was happy to see this fun novella published, which is a revisit of Simon and Caroline’s life after the other books were finished. It was so wonderful to revisit them to see where they were in their lives. This time around, they are settled and trying to have a baby, and in typical Simon and Carolien fashion, they don’t do anything the normal way! As usual, I listened to this on audiobook with the wonderful CJ Bloom and Gregory Salinas. Thank you, Alice Clayton, for this update on one of my favorite romantic couples. I gave this five stars!
