Review: Walk of Shame

Book Review: Walk of Shame, by Lauren Layne

✩✩


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.

Review: When I started reading Walk of Shame, for those first few pages, I didn't like it at all. I actually considered the possibility of quiting and moving on to another book. And then...the plot kind of grew on me and after a while I couldn't put it down. Which just shows that you should never give up on a book too soon. 

I still think the story is a bit unbalanced - it tries to present alternate points of view between Georgie and Andrew, but Georgie's are told in the first person and come up very frequently in the book, and Andrew's are told in the third person and only show here and there, added almost as an afterthought. Also, in my opinion, the end is a bit too much fairytale-ish.

Still, if you're looking for  funny, no-strings-attached, feel good romance, then Walk of Shame is just perfect and will account for a few well spent hours. 

 

Happy readings,
