All you need is love? For the residents of swanky Mayfair Estates, a pre-nup is just another item on the wedding to-do checklist--but three friends get more than they bargained for when they promise to love, cherish . . . and sign on the dotted line.

Ellie married her handsome, wealthy Prince Charming when she was young, naive, and willing to sign a one-sided pre-nup in the name of true love. But seven years and one toddler later, her happily-ever-after has come screeching to a halt. If she can't save her marriage, she's determined to save her divorce, and she's not about to let a lot of legalese stand in her way.

When Jen married Eric, he knew she wasn't head over heels. Still, he insisted that they were perfect together and even bankrolled her blossoming business. But when Jen's career finally takes off, she realizes that she may lose her husband. If Eric leaves, Jen will lose everything--including the marriage she values more than she thought.

Up-and-coming attorney Mara is sure her fiancé has forgiven her for a foolish one-night fling--until he adds a "cheating clause" to the pre-nup she had demanded. If he really trusts her, why the clause? And if she's really trustworthy, why is she objecting?

As romance collides with real life, three very different women turn to each other for moral support and insights about how to safeguard their most valuable assets: their hearts.

Three couples in different stages of their relationships are forced to reevaluate themselves and each other when the issue of prenuptial agreements come into play. Ellie, married to her husband Michael for several years, finds herself fighting for her life (and custody of her daughter) when a one sided prenup comes back into the picture. Jen and Eric are in a seemingly loveless marriage, better suited as friends than husband and wife. When Jen's business takes off, she worries that she will lose more than just the company she built. Newly engaged couple Mara and Josh are fighting past mistakes and are unsure if they can move forward as husband and wife.

Kendrick's book is funny, a fast read, and relatively memorable with twists and turns (some predictable, others not so much). The friendship between the three women seems real and genuine.
