Lauren Layne's new release "Good Girl"

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.

 My Review: 

Lauren Layne’s new release is a bit different than her previous releases. In her new novel Good Girl, Jenny Lawson is a good ol’ country girl thrown into the Hollywood spotlight when her latest album hit the airwaves. Along with the praise from her fans, she’s also getting some unwanted attention from the paparazzi. While trying to escape from a tabloid scandal, she heads back to a mansion in the middle of nowhere Louisiana that she visited as a teenager.

The owner of the mansion, Noah, is living a bit of a double life. Having grown up in a trailer park with his mother, his life changed when as a teenager, his absent father returns and raises him in luxury. He’s grumpy, just ended his engagement with a socialite, and doesn’t hold back on his foul mouth or opinions of others. When Jenny arrives she assumes his friend in the suit is Preston, and they all lead her to believe that Noah is the cranky property caretaker. As the two interact, their initial dislike turns to flirtation, and then attraction. 

"You're playing with fire, little girl" he says quietly. "I'm not one of your toys, and I'm not interested in what you're offering"
"I'm not offering anything," I retort, even though is words sting. "I like my men more...refined"
His grin calls my bluff. "You sure about that?"

Noah wants nothing to do with the wealthy lifestyle he’s been living, and Jenny can’t leave Hollywood. They have to decide what's more important...their lifestyle, or each other. 

Reading you know that secrets are going to come out, and you are left wondering how exactly they’ll handle it all. It’s not quite the same as the Stilleto books as the characters are NA, but it’s a good story nonetheless.
