Review: Good Girl by Lauren Layne

Lauren Layne brings all the unpredictable heat of her USA Today bestseller Blurred Lines to an all-new cast of characters! Country music’s favorite good girl is hiding away from the world—only to find herself bunking with a guy who makes her want to be a little bad.

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.

Kristine's Thoughts:

Lauren Layne is an author that I love to read and rarely do I check out the synopsis. I know that I am going to enjoy the book regardless what the story is about. It took me a little longer to get to this book than it normally would but it didn't disappoint.

I've said it a million times but Lauren Layne writes with a humour and sarcasm that is so real and believable that it feels like it came out of my own mouth. I relate to it on so many levels and it makes her characters feel like they are coming off the page. Did I mention that they are all so likeable too?

Noah and Jenny were both keeping things from each other yet there was an undeniable love/hate relationship going on between them.  It certainly sounded like dozens of other romance books but Layne lends a chemistry that made it uniquely hers. From the quirky banter to the battle of the dogs (big dogs all the way!) I was glued to the pages and routing for them the whole time.

Good Girl was a quick and easy read that provided me a couple hours of pure entertainment.
