Goodreads Summary:
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.



As a Lauren Layne fan, I've heard Walk of Shame is a great new addition to her romance collection of stories. The synopsis sounded promising and the cover looked cute so I was eager to get into the story. And it was definitely hella fun watching the story in Walk of Shame unfold.

Georgianna and Andrew had the best banter ever. I loved their "meetings" in the early hour of the day with him starting his day and her finishing her night. They're normally only a few minutes long but the quips exchanged never fail to convey the chemistry and tension brewing between the two. Her perfectly chirpy personality really contrasts with his stoic stoniness. The two have vastly different lifestyle and attitudes but that is maybe why they're a great fit. Opposites do attract ;)

While I loved the couple in Walk of Shame, I thought the story was extremely predictable. The main conflict was honestly so very meh. I saw it coming from the beginning. Not that I expected any explosive twists but I really wanted some more substance to it. Georgie has made it known throughout the story how much she's aware of her parents' disconnection. It's a little hard to get behind the idea she was blindsided by their divorce announcement. Add in the fact that her problem with Andrew was hastily resolved I couldn't help but be disappointed with this part of the storyline.

Lauren Layne seriously writes some of the hottest sexual tension-filled romance novels I've ever read. They're less drama and more fun than I can express which is why I'll definitely be reading any and all of her future books~
