Book Review - Good Girl by Lauren Layne

ABOUT THE BOOK



Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum, Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant bickering—and serious heat.

Noah really should tell Jenny that he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.

REVIEW

Lauren Layne is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.  This story is so much more complex than your typical romance, but is still a quick easy read.  Layne manages to create complex and likable characters and make them feel real and relatable while still not being perfect.  I loved getting to know Jenny and Noah and would recommend this book to anyone who loves a funny romantic comedy.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
