Daisy is a fun-loving college student at prestigious Columbia University, in New York City, who finds herself pregnant and alone. Pete is an exchange student from Italy with a chronic case of poverty. She needs a baby-daddy, he needs a place to live, so they decide to help each other out by engaging in the time-honored device used by people in need the world over: a marriage of convenience. She’s beautiful and smart, he’s a gorgeous and talented musician, surely they can live together as husband and wife for one academic year? In a one-bedroom on the Upper West Side? With her old-fashioned granny living on the first floor, Pete and Daisy move into a tiny, rooftop apartment, ready to be roommates, husband and wife in name only, for nine months. 
Real life has a way of getting in the way, though, of messing with the best laid plans...
A sweet, lighthearted quick read! I love how this book didn’t beat around the bushes and just went straight into the story.

Marguerite, also known as Daisy was a bit of a mess throughout the beginning. She was a party girl, which I guess you can’t really take out of your system with a snap of your fingers. She was a woman with good intentions but didn’t know where to start. I love how not only I witnessed the growth of her belly in this book, but also her own personal growth as a human. Having a baby is a big responsibility, so I’m happy that she was able to take the high road and be a better person. 

Meanwhile, Pietro, or Pete was such a charming character! For me, he was the highlight of the book. He was such a well-mannered, respectful man and all the while swoon-worthy! He was nothing but a good “husband” to Daisy. A+ for male characters like him!

Was the story anything original? Not really. But I highly enjoyed it. It was more of a character-driven book than a plot-driven one. The chapters were mostly repetitive and I didn’t really know what was up with ending chapters, almost every time, with them falling asleep together. But I liked it nonetheless. It was a cozy read perfect for an all day sit down with a book!
