“Wallbanger is an instant classic, with plenty of laugh out loud moments and riveting characters-highly recommended.” -- NYT and USA Today best-selling author Jennifer Probst
“Fun and frothy, with a bawdy undercurrent and a hero guaranteed to make your knees wobbly, WALLBANGER will keep you up all night. In a good way. Hilarious, romantic, and compulsively readable, WALLBANGER delivers the perfect blend of sex, romance, and baked goods.” -- Ruthie Knox, best-selling author of About Last Night
Caroline Reynolds. Finally a woman who knows her way around a man and a KitchenAid Mixer. She had us at zucchini bread! -- Curvy Girl Guide on Wallbanger

Alice Clayton has a way with words, she knows how to put a smile on your face and make you laugh when you pick up one of her books. She has perfected this through each book in the cocktail series, each book just as funny as the last. It’s a perfect combination of romance, banter, romance, swoon worthy guys and laugh out loud moments. Mai Tai’d Up is a great addition to the series!
Chloe Patterson is a beauty queen who is about to marry a successful attorney. Sounds perfect right? Wrong, she can’t go through with it! She leaves town and goes to her father’s family property in Monterey where she can clear her head, she has been under too much pressure with the wedding and her overbearing mother. Being in Monterey by herself is something she has never had before, space and time on her own, most of all she now has options and a fresh start. She doesn’t want a man but when she does she want’s it all fireworks and knock your socks off kind love.
Chloe has a passion for working with an organisation for rescued dogs, after talking with her associate he suggests meeting with the town’s Veterinarian, Dr Campbell.
Lucas is sexy, charming, sweet, funny and loves to banter, he will have you swooning as soon as you meet him. Being the town vet unbeknownst to him he will be spending a lot more time with Chloe, not that he minds.
Chloe has an idea to start a rescue centre on her property, she has the room and with the go ahead she is finally happy to be doing something on her own, and not something that she has been told to do. With the rescue centre getting off the ground Lucas is volunteering his time to help. While she isn’t looking for love she has a thing for ginger head guys, they are her kryptonite…
Getting to know one another Chloe soon learns that Lucas was left at the alter, afraid she withholds what she did to her own fiance. There is undeniable chemistry between Chloe and Lucas, having both gotten out of a series relationship they are happy to remain friends rather than being each other’s rebound.
But you can only fight your attraction for so long. What happens when these two finally give in and Chloe’s secret is revealed?
We really enjoyed this book, both Chloe and Lucas are loveable characters, the banter and tiptoe romance that evolved was sweet. Alice Clayton will have you laughing out loud when you get to see a side of Chloe only Lucas can bring out.
Told from first person point of view (Chloe) MAI TAI’D UP focuses on runaway bride Chloe Patterson. Groomed by her mother from an early age to be the perfect wife and pageant queen, Chloe is tired of her mother’s rules. A few hours before her marriage to hot shot lawyer Charles Sappington, former beauty pageant winner Chloe has second, third and fourth thoughts about marrying a man she doesn’t love. Realizing there is no love match between her and her intended, Chloe takes off for father’s family farm in Monterey Bay, where she will begin work on a pit bull rescue clinic. Enter Dr. Lucas Campbell, the man with whom she would fall in love.
Lucas Campbell is heartbroken. Left at the altar by his own runaway bride, Lucas is having a difficult time accepting all that has happened. Meeting Chloe shows Lucas the possibility of a real happily ever after but Chloe has hidden the truth about her wedding fiasco.
The relationship between Chloe and Lucas is slow to build as our couple dance around one another for much of the storyline knowing that both could be rebounding from disastrous relationships. Lucas is preparing for a three month excursion to Belize, working with Veterinarians without Borders and Chloe is busy preparing her new pit bull rescue operation. There is plenty of sexual tension throughout the storyline but Chloe’s lie of omission has Lucas second guessing everything about their relationship.
The supporting characters are colorful and well developed including Chloe’s parents, and cameos by her cousin Clark and his fiancé Vivian-Clark and Vivian characters allow for cohesion and familiarity to the Wallbanger series. Chloe’s mother is a real piece work, living vicariously through her daughter’s pageant success. We are also introduced to Lucas’s parents as well as the office receptionist who is quite the matchmaker when she puts her mind to it. Both Chloe and Lucas’s exes make a couple of appearances throughout the story.
MAI TAI’D UP has moments of laughter, heartbreak, passion and drama. The building relationship between Chloe and Lucas is almost secondary to the pit bull rescue storyline and Chloe’s dysfunctional relationship with her mother. The sex scenes are limited ( and nearing the end of the story) as the bond between Chloe and Lucas continues to build-similar in context to a chic lit storyline. But unlike the original Wallbanger storyline, the humor and sexual energy is not as prevalent and missing some of its’ oomph ! The style of writing has changed with each series installment-not a bad thing, just different.
MAI TAI’D UP is a sweet, romantic and entertaining storyline with a happily ever after.
