Book Review: The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

Author: Christina Lauren
Reading Level: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Released: May 14, 2019

Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé is something out of a romantic comedy (gag) and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests (double gag). Worst of all, she’s forcing Olive to spend the day with her sworn enemy, Ethan, who just happens to be the best man.

Olive braces herself to get through 24 hours of wedding hell before she can return to her comfortable, unlucky life. But when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning from eating bad shellfish, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. And now there’s an all-expenses-paid honeymoon in Hawaii up for grabs.

Putting their mutual hatred aside for the sake of a free vacation, Olive and Ethan head for paradise, determined to avoid each other at all costs. But when Olive runs into her future boss, the little white lie she tells him is suddenly at risk to become a whole lot bigger. She and Ethan now have to pretend to be loving newlyweds, and her luck seems worse than ever. But the weird thing is that she doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, she feels kind of... lucky.

One of my favorite duos has done it again for me.  The Unhoneymooners was such a great book!

The best thing I loved about this story is the character Olive.  I connected with her on a spiritual freaking level.  I love that she was written as a curvy girl with some major sass.  I freaking LOVE HER.  Our guy Ethan comes off as uptight and kind of annoying but not to fear, he definitely makes up for those  negative qualities. 

I love this unlikely pair together.  I love that it was a slow burn situation. I also love how funny this book is.  I have never read a Christina Lauren book that didn't make me laugh out loud several times while reading it.  I did feel the ending was a bit rushed but overall, really good.

I'm rating this book 4.5 stars because it was a really fun read and I was able to finish it in one day.  I recommend all of Christina Lauren's books!
