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.
Walk of Shame was the first Lauren Layne book that I have read and I was not disappointed! It was a great read that was just enough of a romantic/funny/sexy story that I had to go back and TBR all of Lauren’s other books! This book was a great story about two people from two totally different worlds annoying the hell out of each other. Until it becomes so much more.
Georgie is a socialite who spends all of her time working on charity events, going out with friends every night, brunching with the parents every weekend, hell, she’s one busy girl!! Most importantly, she always made sure to be in the lobby of her apartment building at 5:00 a.m. SHARP so she can annoy the very rigid lawyer, Andrew, who refers to her as ridiculous every time he speaks with her.
Andrew is the best divorce lawyer that money can buy. However, he is very set in his routine, hardly ever smiles or socializes and annoys Georgie just as much as she annoys him. Little does Georgie know that Andrew enjoys their little encounters just as much as she does.
This story had me from the first chapter! Honestly, I was sucked in when Andrew was described as the love child of Thor and Captain America! That’s a story I can get behind!! 😊
I absolutely love the banter between Georgie and Andrew. Even though Andrew is just so proper, he can really hold his own against Georgie’s quick wit and you can just feel the chemistry and wonder how they just don’t act on their attraction to each other!! It was nice to read a story that the main characters don’t jump each other’s bones within two chapters. I really enjoyed the game these two played, getting almost to the end before they finally give into their desires. AND IT IS AMAZING! Andrew is like Clark Kent…all business but when that suit comes off, HOT DAMN!!
Walk of Shame will be one of those books I go back to over and over because it is “perfectly ridiculous”!!
I give Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne 5 stars!
