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 received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not too sure about this particular cover as it seems a bit fake especially the female side of the book. I do like the side of the man as it seems more relaxed.

When I first started this book I wasn't too sure I was going to like it as like the cover the main female protagonist seemed so fake and annoying but thankfully for this book there was more to her than she lets on to everyone. I loved that this book was full of humour as I was laughing throughout which is always good when a book can make me laugh as this one did. I loved the relationship between the two main characters throughout this book as it wasn't an instant love they actually seemed to dislike one another in the beginning but the more they saw one another the more the chemistry started to spark. They had a great banter between them as they were able to bounce of one another. In the end I loved this book so much I know that it's one of those books that I will read again and again.

Great characters but the took a few chapters to warm up to. Like I said earlier Georgie did come across fake and very shallow but once we got to know her better the more she seemed like such a sweetheart. Andrew was a good character but there was moments when he said things to Georgie that just wasn't nice but in the end I was able to forgive him this as he didn't mean it the way in which it comes across. There was some other great characters intertwined in the story that added more to the story.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book I just wish there was more as I just didn't want it to end.
