The English version of the manga is published by Kodansha Comics, and it revolves around the story of Yae, an ordinary girl working as a temp. Facing the sudden loss of her home and job, she finds herself at a crossroads at the age of 29. However, her childhood friend Takumi, a handsome and successful architect, appears just in time. He offers her free accommodation in his luxurious Tokyo skyscraper condo, but there’s a catch – Yae must pretend to be his wife.
