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.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!! What an amazing addition to the Love Unexpectedly Series. This was what a true HEA is all about 🙂
This is truly my favorite book of this series!!! I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book going into it, because it is an enemies to lovers story and I have found I have trouble reading those. But this book was just GREAT!!
Truthfully Georgie made this book for me. Yes I liked Andrew and his stiffshirtedness, but Georgie was an amazing heroine. She was fun, sassy, sharp witted and just overall fun to read. She is a girl who doesn’t have to work and can just enjoy the fun loving life she leads. I did like watching her grow as a character also as the story went on. She realized she wanted a little more out of her life, but her true goal was getting that Disney HEA. Now Andrew….he was a tough cookie to crack. He is a famous divorce attorney and overall a very intelligent man. His problem is he lead with his big brain and not his heart. He also grew immensely throughout the story. By the end he won over my heart. I loved the banter between Andrew and Georgie. Even though Andrew could get kind of cruel with his comments (in the beginning) Georgie never let that bring her down….it made her come back more fierce. I couldn’t have been happier with this couple!!
As always Lauren Layne still takes a place on my Favorite Author List. This book is the reason I keep coming back to her books.
Walk Of Shame is the fourth standalone novel in the Love Unexpectedly Series. Each book is a complete standalone and there are no interconnecting characters. So this is a series that can be read out of order. This story is told in Dual POV, but with a twist. Georgie’s POV was in the first person POV and Andrew’s was in the third person POV. I’m not exactly sure why she wrote it that way, but it didn’t diminish my enjoyment of the book at all. I loved that this story kind of reminded me of the Disney movie Enchanted!! I also like that she referenced that movie in this book. It made me want to watch the movie again.
I really liked that this book really focused on Andrew and Georgie and any other characters we met through the story were just there to support the main couple.
If you are a fan of the angsty Enemies to Lovers type story or are a fan of Lauren Layne’s books, you don’t want to miss this gem!!!
