Описание

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.



Contains mature themes.

    Jenny Dawson's life went from unknown to America's favorite over night, now she's living in Los Angeles and working on her third country album. The media likes drama though and when she's caught in a tabloid scandal with a pop star she's never met she needs an escape from the flashing lights. She flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to take a break and work on her album. She doesn't plan on the handsome caretaker, Noah Maxwell, or the feelings he brings out in her.
    Noah should really tell Jenny who he really is, but between their constant bickering and their steamy flirting he just can't find the right time to do it. Taking a break from his real life has been such a relief, but as he finds out just how complicated Jenny's life is he wants to be the one to un-complicate it. Together they could find the support to face their problems or they could let them tear them apart.

    Talk about an entertaining and enjoyable read; I felt like I was watching a cute rom-com movie instead of reading a book. Jenny Dawson was a great heroine in this novel, she didn't have any weird hold ups or assume the worst out of everyone, she was just a young woman who found fame and money, but wanted that comfort of a private life after her life was splashed on the tabloids. I really enjoyed reading from her perspective and thought her way of handling the media was excellent. Then there's Noah, caretaker with a secret, who was super swoon worthy and every bit the man Jenny deserved....if it weren't for the darn secret. I loved Noah, his perspective read exactly like a young man whose life conflicts with who he really sees himself as. He was totally a jerk, but knowing the reason why made me really feel for him. The secret he had really played out well in the book and it showed in his actions from page one, even when Jenny was completely in the dark. Finally there are two cute pups that bring the main characters together repeatedly, despite their constant bantering with one another. Lauren Layne did an excellent job of writing two main characters with some hangups that felt very authentic. I loved their bantering that was constantly funny, but definitely felt like foreplay with their chemistry.

    Good Girl was definitely a typical New Adult romance novel for me. Some of the character tropes read as very cliche and the interactions ranged from really great to really cheesy. I think the Hollywood aspect of Jenny was pretty excellent, but she felt really young even though she's an adult living on her own in another city and is famous. I really enjoy NA, but I will always complain when it doesn't feel like a unique story and that was the case with this one. While I enjoyed Good Girl, it wasn't a stand out for me.

    Good Girl is a different style of book from Lauren Layne, if you're a longtime fan be prepared for something a little different. I loved the new characters we were introduced to in Good Girl and I would love to see Noah's friends have books of their own in the future. If you're looking for a cute and funny romance, this is it for you!

    I can't be the only one who kept picturing Hannah Montana no matter what I did to picture someone else, right!?

    Would have given a higher rating if it was a clean romance, which it really could have been.

    As you well know, every good girl needs herself a bad boy. Or so that is what I have heard. I know for fact that every good girl needs time to herself and to get away from all the BS of life. And maybe a complicated man to add into the mix of complication coming her way.Good Girl was good read. I had a ball watching the sparring between Jenny and Noah. The sparks flying while the confronting each other was delicious to feast on. There were a few moments that I was feeling get on with it but as with each read. Things have to play out in there own time. Noah had some serious moments when I just did not like him at all. Jenny was more that her age when she gave as good as she got. She did not just shut down or cry woes is me.Not the best Lauren Layne, but a read that gets you involved even if you don't like the character(s) (Noah). **This ARC was provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

    I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.Jenny Dawson, an established (but only 22-year old) country music singer, has moved to Hollywood temporarily in order to boost her public profile. When a married celebrity claims to have had an affair with her (and other complete strangers join the bandwagon and make similar claims), she flees to rural Louisiana to escape the press attention. There she meets Noah Maxwell, aka Preston Walcott, the owner of the house she rents. Noah, offended by the disdain with which she treats him at their first meeting, pretends to be the caretaker, and leads her to believe that his better-dressed friend Vaughn is Preston.The story is written in alternating (Jenny/Noah) first person, present tense chapters. Jenny seems perfectly pleasant and normal in the opening chapter, but then undergoes some sort of personality change on meeting Noah and his friends and presents herself as a spoilt diva. Noah never really worked for me; he is supposed to have spent the last few years as a rich man, the owner of a successful company. I appreciate that he has chosen not to manage the company on a day to day basis, but does he not have to do any paperwork or attend any meetings at all? What exactly has he been doing with his time? At the end of the story, where he is concerned about getting customers for his woodworking business, what has he done with his immense wealth? Given it away?I disliked the first third of the story, where Jenny and Noah both behaved in bizarre and immature ways and used sex as a weapon. Noah behaved badly and got away with it and, despite the first person perspective, I struggled to work out what was going on in their minds. The middle was the best part for me (except for the constant references to their dogs, but then I am not a dog person), although I wondered how they managed to spend an entire night chatting without Noah revealing a single thing about his true self/life/past... Jenny reverted to her perfectly pleasant normal personality during the evening at the bar with Finn.I liked Finn and Vaughn and what little we saw of Amber more than I liked Jenny and Noah. Overall, I found the story a bit lacking in plot and the characters inconsistent and immature. It was a quick, relatively short read.

    A Contemporary romance novel featuring Jenny Lawson, a country singer who is escaping scandal in Los Angeles; and Noah/Preston, a heir to a fortune hiding out from his ex-fiancee. Jenny takes refuge at one of the properties that Noah has inherited. This is a "Beauty and the Beast" thing; but Noah is such a douchebag it was actually kind of sickening to see Jenny keep coming back for more. Lauren Layne is hit-and-miss with her material. This one is definitely a miss.
