Younger's best-selling 'Marriage Vacation' actually exists and you can buy it now.

Newsflash, 'Younger' fans: you don't have to imagine reading Pauline Turner Brooks' 'Marriage Vacation' because the book actually exists.

Oh yes. We got our hands on a copy, thanks to our friends at National Book Store and, naturally, we turned to the steamy, much-talked about page 58 first. (Mmm, #TeamCharles all the way.)

Over the course of five seasons, as it explores the world of publishing, the hit Darren Star show has come up with imaginary title after imaginary title and finally, here's one we can actually read.

'Marriage Vacation,' which, on the show, was written by the ex-wife (played by Jennifer Westfeldt) of Empirical Press CEO Charles Brooks (Peter Hermann), had a lot of tongues wagging, especially in the Empirical office. 'It's supposed to be fiction but really it's like a blow-by-blow account of their life, no holds barred,' said Kelsey Peters, the Millennial Print publisher played by Hilary Duff.

'There are so many salacious details in this book, it is gonna be huge,' said Diana Trout (Miriam Shor), Empirical's marketing head.

So huge that on the show, Reese Witherspoon picked the book for her book club-and she may even star in a film version.

'Marriage Vacation' is the story of how Kate Carmichael, an Upper East Side housewife who has a seemingly perfect life, leaves behind her husband Karl and their two daughters in search of her lost dreams.

The fictionalized account of a fictional marriage has crossed over into our reality and we love it.

And, don't worry, even if you're not a fan of the show, it can still be an enjoyable read. Liza Miller (Sutton Foster) said, 'It's basically Eat, Pray, Win My Husband Back.'

And yeah, we kinda want to watch Reese play Kate, too.
