“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.

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 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...

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I enjoyed the first enough to listen to The Redhead Series, which I LOVED. But I haven’t been back to this series yet. Just haven’t had the time. And I think, that this will slip the series a bit further down the list. Great review.

I enjoyed this novella, too bad you didn’t like as much as I did. I think Alice ended the series just in time with LAST CALL.

Thanks for your review, I was really hoping this series was going to go out on a high note.
