“While this was cute at times, I found it boring. My favorite part of LAST CALL? Clive at the end.” ~ Under the Covers
I know I’ll probably get some fans thinking I’m completely deluded because everyone seems to love these two. But I think I can now say I’m officially over Alice Clayton. I’ve now read two series by her and both of them I started out loving. WALLBANGER and THE UNIDENTIFIED REDHEAD were great reads and favorites of mine. They were quirky and funny and just adorable. But then the jokes were repetitive, the characters weren’t growing and I started to lose interest. I didn’t enjoy RUSTY NAILED because I lost my interest in Simon and Caroline. Mainly because of Caroline. SCREWDRIVERED was much better in my opinion and I thought the series had a chance. Then MAI TAI’D UP was just ok. And this? Well, I thought it was unnecessary. If I didn’t have to read any more about Simon and Caroline ever again I would’ve been ok with that.
LAST CALL is full of the same jokes, which after four books I don’t find cute or funny anymore. And Caroline was her same old same old Caroline unless she’s shaken up a bit. I keep wondering what Simon finds so irresistible to make the effort. This is their journey to being Mr. and Mrs. Wallbanger. Of course there are some hurdles to overcome. And of course, I wanted to bang Caroline’s head against the wall a few times. Speaking of wallbanging? There’s more of that in this book, which was a nice surprise.
While this was cute at times, I found it boring. My favorite part of LAST CALL? Clive at the end.
