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.

Georgianna Watkins needs to be a real life friend of everyone is this world! I adore this character! Lauren Layne really hit this story out of the park. Walk of Shame is such a refreshing twist to a romance story! I was just in love instantly.

Georgianna Watkins is a socialite in New York City. She is just hilarious! I have to say that I am usually more of a fan of the male characters but Georgianna Watkins really is one of my all time favorites now. She is funny, sassy, friendly, fun and just down to Earth. You will route for her the entire time you are reading Walk of Shame.

Now don’t let me forget that heartthrob divorce attorney, Andrew Mulroney. Yum Yum Yum ladies! Smart, successful, and reserved- you know he needs a feisty lady in his life. If there was ever a couple, you cannot see together but want them to be- Georgie and Andrew are that couple. The banter between them is hysterical and completely what you would do with a crush. They are simply just hot with a capital H.

However, besides being funny to read, this story is romantic and swoon-worthy all at once. It was really such an enjoyable read that I would recommend it to anyone who was sick of the same old romantic novels where the girl needs to be rescued or a tragedy strikes for the characters to finally declare their love for one another. I mean really it needs to be in the purse of any woman I know. Walk of Shame is by far on my top lists for that beach vacation!

Lauren currently lives in Chicago with her husband and their spoiled Pomeranian.
