Release Blast with Review: Walk of Shame (Love Unexpectedly #4) by Lauren Layne

Posted on
The City’s HOTTEST Cold War is here!
a Love Unexpectedly novel
Lauren Layne
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.

My Review

“I was wrong, I realize. First kisses aren’t always a disappointment. Sometimes they’re perfect right from the very start.”

“This man is raw and primal, his touch sure and possessive, as though every part of me is his and he’s always known.”

This book was such a fun, fun read. This book was everything that I wanted and needed in a Lauren Layne novel. From the witty and entertaining banter to the heartbreaking and romantic moments, this book had it all.

Walk of Shame is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Andrew and Georgie. They are the ultimate frienimies. Most days it seems these two can’t be around each other without engaging in intense verbal foreplay. To the outsider, it may seem like all they are doing is fighting. They are complete and 100% opposites. However the tension between the two of them is just explosive. They never stood a chance. Chemistry like the two of them share was meant to be explored. And the more the two of them fight it, the hotter they burn….

From the moment I picked up Walk of Shame I was hooked. I feel in love with Georgie’s smart mouth and personality instantly. While on the outside, she might seem like your average park avenue princess, there was so much more to her than what meets the eye. Beneath her happy exterior is a lonely woman who just wants to be loved and just wants to have the fairy tale ending in a world filled with frogs. And Andrew…He has burned by love in the past and maybe that’s why he is the hottest divorce attorney that NYC has ever seen. He knows what happens after you say I do and that has made him afraid to take the leap when it comes to love. But, when it comes to Georgie, all bets are off. She is unlike any woman that he has ever met. She is his total opposite in every possible way. She is ridiculous and challenges him every step of the way. And he just can’t get enough of her. He’s protective of her in a way he’s never been for a woman. He feels things that he doesn’t understand. He just has to be brave enough to take the leap.

I absolutely adored Georgie and Andrew together. Their banter was so entertaining. I loved seeing their characters develop and transition. They were the ultimate enemies to lovers. I loved seeing the two of them interact. It made it impossible for me to put this book down. I was left with no choice but to devour every second of their story.

Walk of Shame was a fantastic addition to the Love Unexpectedly Series. This book was just so much fun and a great book to spend the day getting lost in. The characters were a ton of fun and easy to connect with. Their story was not only entertaining, but was filled with just the right amount of romance, angst, drama and sexy good times. This story gave me so many feels and left me with the biggest smile on my face. I just loved it!! I definitely recommend checking this book out.
