Review: Good Girl by Lauren Layne (Love, Unexpectedly #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for an honest review.

Good Girl is the second and latest novel in the Love, Unexpectedly contemporary romance series from bestselling author Lauren Layne. This book can be read independently from the first novel, Blurring Lines, since it is not connected to either that story or any of the characters. Book two is an enemies to lovers romance between a twenty-two-year-old country singer caught in a scandal she had nothing to do with and a twenty-seven-year-old reluctant to be the man he's expected to be. They push each other's buttons and get on each other's nerves; but they're also stirring feelings neither one's ready to embrace.

Jenny Dawson life in the limelight has its ups and downs, but that's what happens when your last album went double platinum. Unfortunately, she's being talked about, not for her music but for her being an alleged homewrecker. To get away from the paparazzi and invasive stares from people, she heads on down to Glory, Louisiana. What was supposed some time for peace and quiet is marred by one distraction named Noah Maxwell, the caretaker of the home she's staying at. He's grouchy and makes it clear he doesn't like her, but he's going to keep her secret safe...because Noah's got a secret of his own to keep.

Preston Wescott has gone missing and, aside from his two best friends knowing where he is, Noah Maxwell has no intention of coming into the open. Keeping his identity as Preston Noah Maxwell Wescott a secret from the temptress that is country singer Jenny Dawson is a must. He likes making her think he's nothing more than the hired help and a bad boy who could teach the good girl a thing or two between the sheets. But secrets have a way of coming out and when they do, their already complicated situation becomes precarious. Will they leave everything between them unsaid or find the courage to speak up?

This was a good follow-up to Blurring Lines and continues the theme of two people finding love when they least expect it and from the person they least expect it from. Jenny's the good girl and Noah's the bad boy, and together, there's a lot of push and pull and back and forth that makes for an entertaining read. Of course, underlying all the bickering is the sexual tension, which these two have in spades. Kudos to two dynamic duos--Finn Reed and Edward Vaughn, Noah's best friends, and Ranger the Labrador and Dolly the Pomeranian, Noah's and Jenny's dogs, respectively--who brought added life to Good Girl. 4.5 stars! ♥
