Blurb from Goodreads

Pampered heiress Georgiana 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.

My Review

A Manhattan party princess meets a smart, stuffy lawyer.

On the surface Georgie is an incredibly spoiled and pampered socialite… but she’s misunderstood. As she is very much not the stereotypical shallow rich girl. She’s very caring, loyal, and an absolute hoot!

Andrew is the epitome of a cold and uptight male lead. He’s a jaded and cynical divorce lawyer… but underneath all that is a man filled with quiet emotion who’s afraid of revealing his true self.

When Georgie and Andrew meet they immediately hate each other….

But not really…

Because that much chemistry just doesn’t happen between people who are destined to be life long enemies!

So cue a whole lot of cheeky banter, breakfast doughnuts, protein smoothies, tight abs, and an unabashed love of the Disney film Enchanted.

But mostly, a seriously large amount of flirting!

Walk of Shame is the flawlessly quintessential romantic comedy. It’s got the correct blend of sass and humour. The story is light and joyous; it’s delightfully fluffy and oh so cosy. The plot is 100% predictable but wow is it very, very swoon worthy!

If enemies to lovers is your romantic trope of choice then look no further than this book when you’re in need of an easy breezy read!

Romantic-comedy perfection!

The following quote just made me giggle a whole lot!

I smile wider and push the box in Andrew’s direction. “Doughnut?”

His lip curls. In case you haven’t already gotten a read on this guy, he’s the type that sneers at doughnut.

He lifts a boring black travel mug. “Already have my breakfast.”

“Blended-up quinoa sprinkled with a few bits of spinach and pretension?” I ask.

“Whey powder protein shake.”

“Sounds immensely satisfying.”

He takes a sip of the nastiness and watches me with cold brown eyes. “The body is a temple, Georgiana.”
