Christina Lauren, returns with a delicious new romance between the buttoned-up heir of a grocery chain and his free-spirited artist ex as they fake their relationship in order to receive a massive inheritance.

Anna Green thought she was marrying Liam “West” Weston for access to subsidized family housing while at UCLA. She also thought she’d signed divorce papers when the graduation caps were tossed, and they both went on their merry ways.

Three years later, Anna is a starving artist living paycheck to paycheck while West is a Stanford professor. He may be one of four heirs to the Weston Foods conglomerate, but he has little interest in working for the heartless corporation his family built from the ground up. He is interested, however, in his one-hundred-million-dollar inheritance. There’s just one catch.

Due to an antiquated clause in his grandfather’s will, Liam won’t see a penny until he’s been happily married for five years. Just when Liam thinks he’s in the home stretch, pressure mounts from his family to see this mysterious spouse, and he has no choice but to turn to the one person he’s afraid to introduce to his one-percenter parents—his unpolished, not-so-ex-wife.

But in the presence of his family, Liam’s fears quickly shift from whether the feisty, foul-mouthed, paint-splattered Anna can play the part to whether the toxic world of wealth will corrupt someone as pure of heart as his surprisingly grounded and loyal wife. Liam will have to ask himself if the price tag on his flimsy cover story is worth losing true love that sprouted from a lie.

Anna Green does not have an easy life, and everything is going wrong all at the same time. She got married for the cheap family housing while in college and after that was up, they parted ways amicably. After a few years passed she finds her husband, Liam Weston at her doorstep. He is the answer to all her problems and all she has to do is pretend they are happily married while attending his sister’s wedding with all his uber wealthy family present. They will be trapped on a private island with them for over a week, what could go wrong?

I am a big fan of Christina Lauren books, and they did an amazing job writing this one, I LOVED this book. The fake relationship trope got amped up a notch and I was there for every minute. Anna and Liam were loveable characters, and I could not wait to see their relationship unfold. His family is legit bonkers, the drama was like watching a reality tv show about rich people, color me entertained. If you are a fan of contemporary romance books with fake relationships, you need to read this book.
