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.
3 of 5 stars to Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne
A cute princess-meets-grumpy-divorce-lawyer story reminiscent of Disney’s enchanted movie. In fact, you can notice that the models used in the cover art are actually look alikes of Amy Adams and Patrick Demsey.
Walk of Shame is definitely an enjoyable read with the hero and heroine’s constant bickering/flirting but lacks certain depth that would leave its viewers wanting for more. And it’s not a bad thing, as contemporaries are most commonly marketed for readers looking for light reading.
**cover art: 2/5 stars. Really, there’s no creativity at all.
