The Prenup by Lauren Layne

Publication Date: July 11, 2019
Publisher: Headline Eternal
Rating: ★★★★★

My name is Charlotte Spencer and, ten years ago, I married my brother’s best friend. I haven’t seen him since.

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, man-bun-sporting best friend, and with him a chance to escape.

He’s far from Charlotte’s dream guy as but they need each other for one thing: marriage. 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, Colin drops a bombshell: the terms of their prenup state that before either can file for divorce, they have to live under the same roof for three months.

Suddenly this match made in practicality is about to take on whole new meaning…

Review:

wow. wow. wow. wow wow wow.

I have not read a book that wasn’t an audiobook in a day in alonnnnnng time. This book deserves all of the love and awards. The Prenup is definitely, wholeheartedly, my favorite book of the year so far.

“Life is short. I just don’t really see the point in wasting any more time than necessary being angry or fearful.” 

To start, what even was this story?! Get married and not see each other for ten years? What!!! I think that’s why I enjoyed it so much is because it’s not a book I really read before. Plus, Lauren Layne wrote such a phenomenal book with the love, angst and detail. I could close my eyes and picture everything she wrote in my head.

Next, I feel like Lauren Layne could write anything on a piece of paper and I would cherish it forever. Her quotes spoke to me and I have never even been close to any situation that she wrote about in this book! When I tell you that this book was written phenomenally, take. my. word. for. it! 

Colin and Charlotte are my favorite characters that I have endured in a book in a very long time. I connected with them so well and hated everyone that gave them trouble. I actually sucked my teeth when there were things going on like I was the one being offended. The development throughout this entire book was fantastic with the characters.

I will recommend this book to anyone. I mean it. Take the time out, put your current book on hold, and read this one until it’s finished. You will thank me, I promise!
