“…the book I am reading is Rusty Nailed and as well as being little romantic and a little sexy, it is also pretty darn hilarious.” ~ Under the Covers

Wallbanger and Pink Nightie Girl other wise know as Caroline and Simon are back and officially a proper grown up couple following the events of the first book in this series, Wallbanger. But that isn’t the end of the story, with crazy friends, a disappearing boss and a Wallbanger intent on nesting Caroline has plenty to keep her on her toes.

Picture this, relaxing in garden, sun shining down on me with an ice cold strawberry daiquiri in one hand, Sir Percy the Paperwhite in the other, perfect. Of course you need to ignore the weird snorty laughy noise that keep emerging, but I can’t help it, the book I am reading is Rusty Nailed and as well as being little romantic and a little sexy, it is also pretty darn hilarious.

Rusty Nailed is the second book in the Cocktail series by Alice Clayton and follows the same couple, Simon and Caroline, in Wallbanger, the first in the series we saw them get together and now in Rusty Nailed we see them testing their togetherness and merging their lives together. With funny, sexy and sweet results.

I can guarantee if you liked the first book you will like this one, they have the same kind of odd ball humour, which I enjoyed immensely and as it is a book about the same couple it was all very familiar. I think if I had just finished Wallbanger maybe I would have found this a little too familiar, but I hadn’t so it was comforting to slip back in with a couple I already know and love.

This was a great summer read, fantastic for lazing about and having fun with and I can’t wait to check out whatever Alice Clayton has to show us next.

About Alice Clayton

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 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...

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
