Book Length (Est.): 218 Pages
Sparks fly between a misunderstood New York socialite and a cynical divorce lawyer in this lively standalone rom-com from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Love Story.
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.

Georgie is known for staying out late and partying with her friends, but lately that lifestyle hasn’t had much appeal. What does hold her interest is the man who walks past the front desk every morning at exactly 5 AM. She loves to torment him because he’s the only person she knows who doesn’t seem to like her and it drives her crazy. She likes to be liked, even if it means stopping and picking up donuts every single morning.
“I hope the Wicked Witch’s flying monkeys carry you away and I never have to see you again.”
Andrew has his own reasons for sticking to his tight morning schedule, not that he’d admit to them. He’s a divorce attorney and because he sees the horrible side of marriage he isn’t the type to want to rush into a relationship, and the thought of marriage isn’t exactly on the his list of top things to do. He takes proper etiquette to an entirely new and annoying level.
“It would seem that my incentive to leave and my incentive to stay are one and the same.”
Walk of Shame is a hilariously sweet read. It takes two of the most unlikely people who seem to enjoy driving the each other crazy and puts them in a scenario that can only have one outcome. I mean how could you not fall for someone who would drop everything to take care of you?!?! Mix the sweet with their daily banter meant for nothing else but to win one over on the other and you have an entertaining book.
