Publisher's Summary

By day, Viv Franklin is a tough-as-nails software engineer who designs programs and loves hospital corners. By night, Vivian’s a secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping firefighter to sweep her off her feet. And she gets to wear the bodice - don’t forget the bodice.
When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they?
There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.
In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian. Also within this audiobook, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?

Wallbanger fans, skip this!!

This book is, perhaps, the biggest disappointment of the year. Wallbanger is one if my top 3 reads of all time. This book was boring, crude, had a super annoying, unlikeable heroine, and had no chemistry between the H & h. With one hour left in the book, Viv was still wanting the cowboy. This read more like Chick Lit. The romance was lacking tremendously. I didn't care what happened to them by the end. :-( The narrator was pretty good. She is too breathy, though.

Life is a Romance Novel?

This one was a choice made by my girl Sasha being as she's into the author. I'm okay with the redhead series in general and this; the cocktail series has some high points, this being 1 of them for the most part. My major issue with this piece of fiction was the whole "my life is a romance novel" crap that Viv talked for most of the book. There was also way too many detours into romance fiction cliches and breathless narration. The whole "I want a badboy" theme is one of the lamest ideas that ever entered a straight girl's mind. Too many of my girls have tried to effect that sort of transformation in some bad*** wannabe or loser; only to end up brokenhearted when; surprise, the dude doesn't change. As a female who does the bad girl thing I can tell you that I'm not changing. In the end of course the crazy lady gives up on it and ends up with the right guy, and they all live happily ever after.
