Book Review The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

May 142019

The Unhoneymooners BLURB:

For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetime—maybe even love—in this romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling authors of Roomies.

Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion . . . she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas.

Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo.

Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is . . . Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be.

With Christina Lauren’s “uniquely hilarious and touching voice” (Entertainment Weekly), The Unhoneymooners is a romance for anyone who has ever felt unlucky in love.

The Unhoneymooners was that book I expected to read and enjoy the hell out of it!

Everything was hilarious and so fun to read! Olive was a match for Ethan, and their dialogue was the best I have every seen! Even in the beginning of the book, I laughed so hard at all their hilarious encounters and how they end up hating each other. Olive was a fun gal to get to know.

This will definitely be one of the books that goes to my Re-Reading shelf!

Olive’s twin sister is getting married with Dane, Ethan’s brother. I don’t want to spoil all the fun, but let’s say the universe throws Olive and Ethan together, in Maui, replacing the bride and groom, on their honeymoon.

How can two people who hate each other, bicker all the time spend 10 days together?

The name calling was the best part of this book for me. The chemistry between the two of them was such thrilling, that even when they were trying to annoy the hell out of each other, that glimpse of heath was felt.
Once in Maui, things go wrong, because Olive believes she has the worst of luck. Of course, she has to fake being married, and to encounter her new boss there. Plus, Ethan’s ex is also attending the same resort they are. Now, the unhoneymooners need to make them believe they are married so they don’t get to pay the whole trip.
