The City's HOTTEST Cold War is here!
WALK OF SHAME
a Love Unexpectedly novel
Releasing April 18th, 2017
Sparks fly between a misunderstood New York socialite and a cynical divorce lawyer in this lively standalone rom-com from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Love Story.
Pampered heiress Georgianna Watkins has a party-girl image to maintain, but all the shopping and clubbing is starting to feel a little bit hollow—and a whole lot lonely. Though Georgie would never admit it, the highlights of her week are the mornings when she comes home at the same time as her uptight, workaholic neighbor is leaving to hit the gym and put in a long day at the office. Teasing him is the most fun Georgie’s had in years—and the fuel for all her naughtiest daydreams.
Celebrity divorce attorney Andrew Mulroney doesn’t have much time for women, especially spoiled tabloid princesses who spend more time on Page Six than at an actual job. Although Georgie’s drop-dead gorgeous, she’s also everything Andrew resents: the type of girl who inherited her penthouse instead of earning it. But after Andrew caps one of their predawn sparring sessions with a surprise kiss—a kiss that’s caught on camera—all of Manhattan is gossiping about whether they’re a real couple. And nobody’s more surprised than Andrew to find that the answer just might be yes.
Lauren Layne is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.
A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.
She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL's ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.
This is a great new story written by Lauren Layne. It is charming and sassy, has great chemistry between the main characters Georgianna Watkins & Andrew Mulroney while the settings in the book are written that they make you feel as if you are right there.
This story was full of passion, of chemistry, of humor, of witty banter—I loved Walk Of Shame!! I couldn’t stop reading once I started and was up until the wee hours of the morning because I had to re-read this fantastic story. Georgie is an heiress yet she isn’t the typical heiress that you would think of. She is a sweetheart and she is kind and smart. She gets a bum rap in the media which makes people think all kinds of bad things about her that aren’t true. She tries to get people to see that she isn’t a bad person and soon people start to see this EXCEPT the stick up his rear divorce attorney Andrew. He says mean things to her or he makes it a point to ignore her- there is no middle ground with him. Andrew is a super smart divorce attorney and grew up like one of those boy genius types. He is successful, rich in his own right yet something about Georgie rubs him the wrong way.
Their relationship starts off rocky but yet their witty banter is their saving grace and the chemistry between them is red hot. I also liked the secondary characters and just how there were some angst and some twists and turns in this RomCom story. It is really complex yet sweet with the layers you undercover as you read thru Georgie and Andrew’s love story. What a great ending for this couple and a beautiful story.
My rating: 4.7 stars ****
