REVIEW – WALK OF SHAME (Love Unexpectedly #4) by Lauren Layne


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 feel the breath knocked out of me, because there’s no more denying it, no more denying my heart. This is it for me. This is what I want, not just for as long as I can have it, but for always.

Now, this is the kind of story that I have come to expect from the talented Lauren Layne. It’s why I will always read anything she writes. I will never grow tired of reading her books! She has a knack for the enemies-to-lovers RomComs and WALK OF SHAME is going on my favorites list!

At first, I was a little worried because the Heroine seemed to be a shallow Manhattan socialite whose only purpose in life was to party every night with her friends till dawn and to make it to her weekly hair salon appointments. But as the story progresses, we get to peel back Georgie Watkins’ layers and she ends up being an endearing and whimsical character. The man that’s been occupying most of her thoughts lately is her gorgeous but utterly standoffish and cold neighbor, Andrew Mulroney. Andy is one of New York’s top divorce attorneys and he’s a no-nonsense kind of guy who lives a very structured life. These two meet up in their luxury apartment lobby every morning at around 5 am when Georgie is just making it home from her nights of partying and Andrew is on his way to the gym and then to the office. They share a bit of sarcastic banter each morning and you know from the start that there’s some serious chemistry building between them.

Georgie is affected by Andrew’s comments and perception of her. And Andrew can’t deny that Georgie’s vivacious personality is starting to be something he craves and can’t live without. Ultimately the two become romantically involved and the steam is incredible between them!! They may be total opposites but their differences seem to complement each other nicely. Andrew’s life seemed dull and monochromatic but now Georgie’s presence is breathing gorgeous technicolor into it. Neither Georgie nor Andrew have ever experienced real soul changing love before. Andrew has not been a believer in love being that his profession deals with the ending of it. Georgie may not have ever been in a serious relationship prior to Andrew but she’s always been a believer in ”fairy tales”and ”happily ever afters”.

Just when they are starting to realize what’s in their hearts, a devastating secret has the potential to put an end to what could be the greatest love Georgie and Andrew have ever encountered!
