USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Lauren Layne brings all the unpredictable heat of 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.

Praise for Good Girl
“I couldn’t read this fast enough! Lauren Layne created witty and well-developed characters who pulled at my heartstrings and had me falling in love over and over again! I highly recommend Good Girl, one of my favorites of the year!”—USA Today bestselling author Brooke Cumberland
“Good Girl is a delicious bite of Southern seduction with chemistry that sizzles. It’s the perfect way to spend a summer night.”—Rebecca Yarros, author of the Flight & Glory series
“The writing was humorous, engaging, and occasionally steamy. I adored the character of Jenny.”—Books and Bindings
“I highly recommend this book. I’m legitimately bummed that I finished this book, because now it’s over, and I all I want is more Noah and Jenny.”—Obsessive Book Nerd (five stars)
“The writing is typical of Lauren Layne—amazing setting, fun secondary characters and brilliant banter!”—Rhea’s Neon Journal
“If I could only tell you one thing about this book, it would be that it will entertain you. You won’t be sitting there waiting to get to the good part, or waiting to get back to the good part, or wondering how many pages are left. If you’re not having a pre-pizza moment or an ‘Oh lawdy!’ moment, you’ll either be laughing or crying tears of gooey heartwarming happiness. Perhaps it will be a combination of all of above. Five out of five stars, y’all!”—Romance & Smut

A two star rating is generous
Finally done. Like pulling teeth. Gave two stars for the best friends. Loved Finn and Vaughn. Hilarious. Jenny had no self esteem. Noah/ Preston had childhood issues. How are they a couple. I felt nothing for these two. There was more passion between Dolly and Ranger. Such a boring couple. I actually skipped several chapters to finish. Thank goodness for comic relief Finn and Vaughn.
Ms Layne has done it again, made my heart sigh with her masterful character combination of Noah and Jenny. I have yet to come across another author who creates characters who are so dynamic, and life like with a depth only found outside of print.
Noah and Jenny's story not only contains the heartwarming moments, with the perfect mixture of humor and banter that I've come to expect from Ms Layne's characters, but there's the addition of the two of them being so different in their personalities, gruff and surly alpha vs America's sweetheart who sings like an angel, that the pair make for an engaging read that you just don't want to end. As far endings to the perfect romance go, I couldn't have asked for it to end any other way, it is pretty flawless.
This book was provided by Netgalley for my honest review.
Loved reading this funny, sweet, adorable romance, that also had some serious sizzling heat. I could not put this story down. Both characters are well developed and real and I loved the storyline. Written in dual POV that I enjoy.
Jenny Dawson is country music's favorite good girl. After her second album went platinum last year, she moved to LA for her career, away from her family and friends. After a serious of Tabloid scandals that make her out to be possibly pregnant as well as a home wrecker with a pop star she barely met, she decides to skip town and all the craziness and concentrate on her next album.
Noah Maxwell Preston Walcott Jr. has just broken up with his Fiancé, after finding out she has been cheating on him for the last year. Tired of always doing what he is suppose to and being someone that everybody else thinks he should be, he is looking for some time alone to figure what, he wants to do all by himself.
After receiving a email from Jenny Dawson country music star, requesting to rent some space in a run down mansion that he wasn't even aware that he owned, him and his friends quickly try to get it back into living conditions. But when Jenny shows up early in Glory Louisiana, and conveniently thinks that his friend is the owner, Noah lets her think that he is the caretaker. He has had enough of women thinking of him as a bank account.
But what starts off as some serious verbal arguing between them, becomes more like foreplay. And as the nights start to sizzle with some serious heat and sizzling chemistry, these two just might be what the other is looking for. But with secrets between them will they make it work? You will have to read to find out. Fantastic Ending! Loved this adorable, sweet romance.
