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.


I don’t know what went wrong for me here, I liked this book, it was a good solid story with interesting characters that had more to them that met the eye. I really tried to love it more, but something was missing for me.

Georgie is a Manhattan socialite, she comes from money and other than the odd bit of charity work, she doesn’t do much else except party all night and lunch with her friends. She sounds really dull, but quite surprisingly she was very likeable and had a good sense of humour.

Andrew is one of New York’s best divorce attorney’s and he was as moody as they come, his encounters with Georgie when he was going out as she was coming in at 5 am, were funny and full of all that love/hate sexual tension I love.

There was lots of back and forth banter, and I did enjoy their gradual progression from enemies to lovers, it was really sweet, and pretty hot when push came to shove.

Overall, it was a likeable story, and would definitely recommend to LL fans and lovers of love/hate banter.
