Ten years ago, I married my brother’s best friend. I haven’t seen him since. Until now ...

Charlotte Spencer grew up on the blue-blooded Upper East Side of Manhattan but she never wanted the sit-still-look-pretty future her parents dictated for her. Enter Colin Walsh, her brother’s quiet, brooding best friend, and with him a chance to pursue her dreams. One courthouse wedding later, Charlotte’s inheritance is hers to start a business in San Francisco and Irish-born Colin has a Green Card.

Ten years later, they're happily married. On different coasts. With separate lives. In fact, she hasn't even seen Colin in a decade, and that's just fine by her.

But fate throws her a curveball when her husband calls her back to New York, and she realize the boy she's married is long gone. In his place is a shockingly appealing man ... who wants a divorce. The problem? The terms of their prenup arrangement state that before either can file for separation, they have to live under the same roof for three months.

Now, in order to get divorced, they have to pretend to be married. For real...
I adored Charlotte so freaking much! At the beginning, I wasn't sure I would like her, because she seemed superficial and is very materialistic. But she soon showed me just how wonderful she truly is. My heart kept breaking for her so much 😭 It's not always that a book has me feeling this much (Marriage for One and Breakdown), but I shouldn't have doubted Lauren Layne. I almost didn't pick it up. I'm glad my love LL pushed through!

The arrangement was working just fine for everyone until my brother thought it would be hilarious to force us to live under the same roof and prove it in order to get divorced. Until Colin decided he wanted a divorce.

The Prenup was filled with easy and light banter. I enjoyed a lot the interactions between Charlotte and Colin. She'd say anything and everything to get that man to at least smile. And Colin was almost always a vault. He'd barely say anything, much less of what he was feeling. It was interesting to see these two come to terms with the fact they were falling one another.

One thing I absolutely loved about this novel was the falling in love part. It wasn't force at all. It just came natural from spending time together. It felt genuine! I don't know if this is entirely a romance novel since the romance was barely there but it is still so very enjoyable!
