The Prenup

The Prenup

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...

    I have been a fan of Lauren Layne's from the very first time I read one of her titles. I love the worlds she builds, the characters, the stories she tells, and the way she makes you care about each of the characters and feel like you know them. It's because of how completely she draws you in that I have read all of her titles. I've loved them all. But, there is something about this book and but there's just something about Charlotte and Colin.

    I have been a fan of Lauren Layne's from the very first time I read one of her titles. I love the worlds she builds, the characters, the stories she tells, and the way she makes you care about each of the characters and feel like you know them. It's because of how completely she draws you in that I have read all of her titles. I've loved them all. But, there is something about this book and but there's just something about Charlotte and Colin.

    What I can say, with certainty, is this is absolutely, 100% the best book she has ever written.

    If you haven't read anything by her, start here. If you have, you are in for such a treat...and, I can't lie, I am a little jealous of those reading this one for the first time...because this book is an example of storytelling perfection.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not saying I haven't loved all of her other books, I have. There is just something about this story. The way it weaves from one event to another without ever losing the central focus, the way it brings in secondary characters without losing sight of the central characters and telling their story. It all just works, and it works very well.

    I think it is, as it always is with Lauren Layne titles, the depth of the characters. These are real people. You feel their emotion. You cheer for them, and you want the best for them. You get mad at them when they mess up, you cringe for them when they make bad decisions. But, most of all, these are people and not characters in a story.

    Without giving too much away, this is the ultimate slow burn. The slowest. But, the tension, the want you feel between them as they get to know one another and slowly fall in love builds to what is possibly the hottest kiss in all of romance. Ever.

    Charlotte and Colin are married...for convenience. And, it's the ultimate marriage of convenience. But, while this is a familiar trope (he needs a Green Card and she needs a husband to get her inheritance) that is where any feeling that you may have read this before comes to a total stop. You haven't. It feels different, it feels more real and, as you have fallen in love with them, and been there for their journey as they fall in love with one another, your heart is fully along for the ride in a way that I will not be able to adequately describe.

    I can't say enough about how much I just loved this book. So, I think what I will close with is a recommendation that you read this title for yourself.

    I absolutely loved and recommend this title.

    Friends..... THIS WAS ADORABLE. 5/5, review to come.

    this was EVERYTHING.

    loved charlotte and colin's characters, both successful, hardworking and focused. the situation that they were in at the beginning was quite hilarious to be honest, him being super uptight and her being super eccentric. their chemistry was undeniable and their personalities were perfect for each other, it was inevitable.

    though i have to say i was not satisfied with the final chapters. i expected an incredible scene when they finally got together after all that happened yet i

    though i have to say i was not satisfied with the final chapters. i expected an incredible scene when they finally got together after all that happened yet i was unfulfilled even with the 4-5 supposed epilogues, but it does deserve a 4/5 rating (not focusing on the end) 😣

    and what I felt after finishing it, especially regarding the writing, the couple and the development of their love story. Again the relationship between Charlotte and Colin is extremely slow paced. Yes, their story together and everything happening between them is sugary sweet and I did enjoy that a lot! Still, I missed more of that sexual tension I know LL knows how to write, having some steamy scenes and seeing more of these two as an actual couple.

    Obviously, I still loved it because this is Lauren Layne we are talking about!

    is a sweet, slow paced love story of marriage of convenience in LL's style and if you are a fan of that, surely check this new release out!

    This is gonna be a very spoiler-y review

    At 21 Charlotte decides she no longer wants the life mapped out by her parents. Instead she marries her older brother’s nerdy best friend, Colin, to gain access to her trust fund and in turn Colin would gain a green card. No sooner has the ink dried on their marriage license does she jet off to San Francisco to start her own very much successful business.

    Ten years later after very limited communication between the married pair, Charlotte receives an email from Colin. She flies back home and sees Colin for the first time in a decade and lo and behold gone is the bearded, man bun with the homeless vibe to be replaced by an eye candy. Colin reveals he wants a divorce; however, much to both their dismay Charlotte’s brother had put a stipulation on their prenup stating that both have to live together for 3 months prior to their divorce (Did I mention Colin is a lawyer, ouch). Charlotte uproots her life and moves into Colin’s apartment. The pair are practically strangers and they mix like oil and vinegar. Rahrah some up&coming closure on Charlotte’s end with her parents. Charlotte is on a mission to break through Colin emotionless robot self and get him to like her because

    Just when we think things are progressing between the two and Colin showing what may seem like interest DING DONGGGGGG RINGALING BISHES Colin’s fiancée (Rebecca) is at the door. YIKES! Could not have hosed out the non-existent, possibly budding chemistry between the two faster. There’s just so many things wrong here for me to even want to root for Colin&Charlotte. Honestly for a good half of the novel I thought Charlotte was kinda a mess but turns out Colin was the real fk up. If you are gonna wait for Colin to grow a pair, don’t hold your breath. It’s a pathetic enough excuse to tell someone you couldn’t find the right time to drop the I’m engaged bomb... maybe try it in the same sentence when you ask for a divorce. To add insult to injury he was still engaged to OW pretty much up till the last chapter of the book. BLEUGH

    Jumping to Charlotte real quick. I was iffy about her character with her “I’m not going to be the other woman/wrecking a relationship” proclamation cos for a moment I doubted her, given her actions and emotions. I mean there were the almost-moments (AND YA I KNOW IT TAKES 2 TO TANGO SO I’M COMING BACK FOR YOUR ASS COLIN) and times she would crave the reciprocation of feelings towards the end. And yeah yeah I get the whole the heart wants what it wants whatever but damn woman. On the other hand, Charlotte does redeem herself by the end unlike a certain asshat. She tries to be the bigger person around Rebecca and ultimately when it mattered most, she made the selfless decision and bowed out early because if you love someone you’d put wanting their happiness above your own. And props to the character development she had, I liked the last convo Charlotte had with her mother where she thought of how she would have responded as a younger-her compared to the matured-her. In a conversation where instead of listening to argue your point and getting your way, you actually took in what is said and considered the other person’s perspective and that maybe it held some truth. So ya, this book wasn’t a total flunk (because of Charlotte) but it still kinda was… LOL

    BECAUSE STUFF YOU COLIN AND THAT STICK UP YOUR ASS. Honestly, this guy was pretty much a brick wall with the smallest drop of personality. Fake marriage or not, I can’t be rooting for Charlotte&Colin when this bloody idiot is engaged to another (even if it was a result of an ultimatum- you make your bed etc). Maybe before you get yourself into a serious relationship get your marriage sorted out first. Wouldn’t that be the decent thing?? HMM??? I mean there was nothing stopping Colin from ending their marriage earlier and it didn’t even come up until Rebecca gave the engagement-ultimatum (spells like true romance). And maybe tell your current wife who you are trying to divorce about said fiancée so it doesn’t come outta left field and sets some boundaries between the two of you. It makes all the potential moments of Charlotte&Colin growing closer feel icky and gross. Like the times Colin’s stares lingered on Charlotte or when he admitted to temptation like Charlotte needing to stop wearing her silk PJs because

    Yeah fuck off. That isn’t romantic, that’s just disgusting. In no way, shape or form am I gonna read that line or something about a taken-guy being tempted as swoon-worthy or otherwise. That’s a clusterfuck.

    To top it off this guy did have feelings for his fiancée and then somewhere in between I’m to believe he also developed some for Charlotte too. WHAT THE FK EVER. Like honestly, can someone even explain to me for certain what it was that made him fall for Charlotte? Because it was done poorly in the book. To me, Colin would have probably married Rebecca given how late he ended it with her. Like what was the turning point for him to realise Charlotte was it. The “you don’t know what you have till it’s gone” cliche? Or? Because P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C either way. All in all, Colin was an indecisive, selfish dickhead.

    Neither of the two were celibate during the 10 year separation (yay charlotte)

    And there were no lines crossed by Charlotte&Colin, just toeing the line. No one gets cheated on is what I’m meant to say. WELP I MEAN BESIDES ME BEING CHEATED OUTTA MY TIME FOR THIS STUPID “ROMANCE" BOOK.

  • Alex ♈

    €100 he wasn't celibate. Is that cheating, or did they find a cool excuse?!

    Laughing without reading it, a comedy indeed! 🤣🤣🤣

  • Elizabeth

    Not into heroine as a backup and basically second best. If you dont like OW drama this is not the book for you.
