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 ...

When an author tells you that they've put their heart into a book, rarely do I read it and actually feel the emotions. Lauren, you did an exquisite job coloring the plot with such great emotion and keeping me twisted into the plot until I could finish the book. Wow. Just wow.

Anytime a Lauren Layne book comes out I get so excited! From when I first discovered her, I have loved her writing style and devour her books so quickly. Of course I pre-ordered The Prenup as soon as it was available, but I hadn't had a chance to read until just now. LL has posted a bit about this book (mainly about people not really liking this book - because it doesn't have steam/sexy times) and I honestly wasn't sure what type of book it was going to be. Well, I should always have faith in her because I loved loved loved this book. I can not put into words how much I loved this book. This is a marriage of convenience/brothers sister trope, but it is done so refreshingly. Colin and Charlotte are ALREADY married (she needed an inheritance and he needed a green card so they got married super young), with a prenup intact that states they have to live together for 3 months before agreeing to a divorce. Problem is, they've been "married" for 10 years and only recently decided that they should finally be done with their farce of a marriage. I love when romances evolve because of close proximity and the angst/sexual tension between Colin and Charlotte drives this book! I could not stop reading (as is the case with most LL books) even when I had tears streaming down my face or I was laughing at something Charlotte said (I love her!! She is hilarious). It was so much fun watching their relationship grow. Colin's grumpiness and Charlotte's sunshine is the perfect combination. Now trust me, I love the steamier parts of romance books and I honestly believe that LL writes some of the better steamier scenes out there, but this book was still so so good even without them. Thank you LL for writing such a wonderful book, one that made me laugh and cry and that I couldn't get enough of. 5 fantastic stars from me.

I don't usually read many love stories but I found this book to be really good. I love the way the author talks through this novel. It's definitely a feel good story. I hope you take a chance on reading it.

I loved this story! Yes, it was a different storyline: marriage of convenience....with a modern twist. I loved how Colin and Charlotte initially married; but, I loved how they came back together. One of my GR friends and had said it reminded her of the movie The Proposal and it soooo did but on a grander more epic love story scale! I literally did not want to put it down....I blocked out an entire conversation my husband was having with me because I was so focused on the story. This is a book that will I plan to purchase the PB for to have on my shelf and hopefully (one day) have Ms. Layne sign. PS.....I so would have followed Colin to Dublin

Ten years ago Charlotte Spencer was desperate to escape her Upper East Side parents and their judgemental attitude so she agreed to marry her brother's nerdy friend Colin Walsh - she got access to her inheritance from her grandmother and he got a green card. Fast forward to the present day and Charlotte has built a highly successful business selling social media skills to large multi-nationals from her base in San Francisco and Colin is a successful lawyer -and he wants a divorce. However, when they read their prenup they discover that Charlotte's brother (who wrote it as a favour ten years ago) inserted a clause which states they have to live together for three months before they can get a divorce. This is the sort of zany comedy I love and which Lauren Layne can excel at, it reminds me of those old Doris Day films - all glamour and sass and gorgeous men. Of course Colin has an ulterior motive, of course when thrown together Charlotte and Colin are like chalk and cheese but there is a also a spark … This is a perfect easy-reading, cheer-you-up, read on the beach summer romance.
