Rating : 4 Stars
Blurb : 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 : The book has been released now for a while so I guess there are definitely some people out there that are just in this second considering to read it while they check out the blurb. And yes – I can only recommend to do so.
Good Girl by Lauren Layne is a sweet romance, that is well written and well developed. It has totally likeable characters and is not too deep so it makes a wonderful summer read.
In fact – I would like to suggest the perfect setting as follows :
You wait for a hot day that promises a warm evening – and just when the sun is going deeper you sit outside with the view of something nice and green. If you have a swing maybe even on a porch ? USE it … take a glass of wine with you or if you don’t want alcohol … take an ice tea. Something to eat would also not be bad – don’t worry about calories – because Jenny is also learning that.
Jenny – by the way is the female lead in the book you are about to read. She is actually supposed to be happy – because she has it all – but is she really ? It is one of those evenings that when you breath in you can not find any difference in the temperature of the fresh air from the one you just breathed out.
The wine is good and I promise you you will get into this book. Did you bring a light with you outside ? If not – you should go back and get one you will need it – because you will not want to stop reading once you met Noah.
Gosh – Noah – our male lead he is so hot – really he will make some mistakes – I can guarantee you that – and he will have a lot to apologize for . In fact – he will do that constantly – almost that is – but who counts …when he is in the end just a really nice guy getting a wrong start at life in total and with Jenny in particular.
And while your sipping your 2nd or is it your 3rd glas – you will encounter more and more steam in this novel. You will not want to stop reading while the building relationship between those two really gets intense and believe me I would love to give some quotes here on this. Looking up you will notice that its complete dark now outside and you have still some chapters to go – thank god your eBook reader comes with light – right ? right !
Because you can not bring yourself to stop. The bottle is empty – The popcorn you got yourselfs at some point (Jenny will explain) is long gone but you can not bring yourself to stop reading because there is this big mistake about to happen.. So who cares if it is already 3 am you will continue to finish this book.
Then finally … the credits roll to this “movie” and you feel good – you are tired – still sitting outside and it is already getting brighter – the night will make place for the sun. Soon the birds are already starting with their good morning songs – yet you feel utterly satisfied.
I guess you wonder by now where I came up with that suggestion – well this is what happened to me last night … while I read this book
