In this sequel to Wallbanger, fan favorites Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in Sausalito.
Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on an extended 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. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!
Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing—but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

Ugh... What happened?!?
I was looking forward to this book for a while now, Wallbanger was Awesome! But this one really disappointed me... I didn't really enjoy it as much as I'd hoped. The storyline was kind of bland and there should have been more Clive and less Neil and Sophia... More relationship growth and less job stress. I am kind of disappointed, it's obvious there won't be another book and this is what we have.. BOO
I fell in love with the first book, "Wallbanger", expecting that the second book was going to be better. I found myself getting stressed and mad at Caroline for always being such a debbydowner. The book is not what I had expected it to be, but I guess it was ok...
I really enjoyed this book. After reading "Wallbanger," I couldn't get enough of Caroline and Simon's relationship. Then I heard Alice wrote "Rusty Nailed" I flipped out just what I needed. I recommend you read this amazing book, and I hope you love it as much as I did. If you liked "Wallbanger" then you will love "Rusty Nailed."
