Manhattan financial planner Melanie Banks likes being on top. She's addicted to the money, the power, and the success only hard work and long hours can bring. When she first meets and falls in love with pro football player Dan Swain, she admires his work ethic too. But then they get married and his career comes to a screeching halt, and suddenly she's the one bringing home the bacon - and falling out of love with him. In the years - years! - since he last held a job, he's become a paycheck-devouring, couch-sitting mooch, and he likes it that way. And Melanie decides it's time to lose the loser. Divorce, however, isn't all it's cracked up to be. For starters, Melanie's forced to share custody of Buster, the couple's adorable dog. And married or not, she still has to support the incomeless Dan in the princely style to which he's become so infuriatingly accustomed. Whether the overpaid lawyers term it "alimony" or "maintenance," the bad news is that she has to pay it - and keep paying it until death do them part. But there is one loophole. If she can dump her ex on some other unsuspecting female for ninety days and get him to violate their cohabitation clause, she's off the hook - forever.
