5 Perfectly Ridiculous Stars!!
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 don’t like games, Georgiana.”
“Which is why you need to play them, Andy.”
He blinks. “It’s Andrew.”
“Hmm. How about Drew?”
“No.” The word is a growl. “Georgiana.”
He exhales. “I’m going to kill you.”
I can’t help the laugh. “See, I don’t think so.”
“Nope,” I say, sucking sugar off my thumb. “You don’t send flowers to someone you’re going to kill.”
Lauren Layne always does the perfect combinations of sophistication and down to earth with her female characters and I’m not quite sure how she manages it. At first you would think Georgie is just all flippant and doesn’t have a care in the world, and in some ways that part is true. However, she really does do a lot of good in the world besides just charity work. Her little acts of kindness every day set in motion I’m sure a giant ripple effect for the rest of the world. I love her open kindness to everyone around her, no matter how little time she has known them. Her loyalty to her friends is really a great trait that is shown in the very beginning and I loved it.
Andrew was a very tough nut that’s for sure, I feel he was a little bit emotionally stunted from his job and lack of normal school life. I really enjoyed the banter he had going on with Georgie through out the whole book and that he refused to call her by her nickname. I usually like reading the books where the girl is super awkward because I can relate to that better, however this one where the guy was unbelievably awkward so nice. I think most of was because he didn’t know how to handle Georgie she didn’t fit into his nice plotted out and color coded life style.
Lauren Layne has been and will probably always be an auto buy author for me. She just writes probably the best city/posh/rom-coms and I love them. So if you would love an enemy to lovers rom-com this book would be right up your alley.
’m living my dream life as a full-time romance author living in New York City.
I’m a writer, simple-living advocate, and wife to my high school sweetheart. I believe that life’s too short to live anything less than your own version of happily-ever-after.
