The Paradise Problem

A novel by

Christina Lauren, the instant New York Times bestselling and “reigning romance queens” (PopSugar), 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.

Praise for this book

"Another Christina Lauren book to absolutely inhale like a breath of the freshest, funniest air, this one had me laughing in delight even as I clutched my chest for all the emotion it made me feel. Splashy, summery, deliciously swoony--The Paradise Problem is the book I predict everyone will be reading this season." - Kate Clayborn

"THE PARADISE PROBLEM is Christina Lauren at their very best - which also happens to be very best of the romance genre! The steam sizzles, the setting dazzles, the humor sparkles, and the characters give us no choice but fall head over heels for them. Another masterpiece from the queens of romance!" - Ali Hazelwood

"Every time I read a new Christina Lauren book I swear it is my favorite - but I suppose that's what happens when each novel is even more delightful than the last. I loved THE PARADISE PROBLEM so much I found myself procrastinating just so I wouldn't reach the end." - Jodi Picoult

"If Succession was a rom-com: Fake dating, steamy romance, and a family you'll want to throw into the ocean, The Paradise Problem is sure to be a new fan favorite!" - Julie Soto
