+ book summary
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.
Noah pauses at the stop of the stairs. “What are you doing in there?” he snaps.
Let’s review: jerk.
“This is my room,” I say with a deliberately fake smile.
He nods in the opposite direction. “Master bedroom’s down this way.”
“I don’t want the master bedroom,” I say with what I think is admirable patience. “I want this one.”
“Does it matter?” I snap.
Dolly leaps down from the bed, poking her tiny head around the corner to see who I’m talking about before she begins yapping at him.
“Does it have a mute button?” he asks, glaring at Dolly.
I ignore him, stepping aside so he can maneuver my bags into the room. The room feels instantly smaller with him in it.
“Careful,” I say, my voice sugar-sweet as he drops my bags to the ground. “That’s Louis Vuitton.”
His dark brown eyes find mine. “No, it’s not.”
I lift my eyebrows in surprise. He’s right. It’s totally not Louis Vuitton. I don’t even know what brand it is—it’s just something I picked up at a generic luggage store—but I’m a little surprised the guy knows what Louis Vuitton is . . . or isn’t.
I give him a once-over, wondering if there’s more to the guy than muscles and a bad attitude.
