The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren @gallerybooks #review #fiction


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.


Ethan and Olive inherit a honeymoon. Ethan’s brother, Dane, and Olive’s sister, Ami, get married. And everyone at the wedding came down with food poisoning, except for Ethan and Olive. So, they end up going to Maui. Wonder how well this is going to work out? Ethan and Olive HATE each other!

Y’all! This read is absolutely adorable! I fell in love with all the characters, especially Ethan. Ethan and Olive have such a unique relationship. They start out despising each other. It is so bad…they won’t even speak. They can hardly stand to be in the same room together. Well, of course this leads to a relationship….I mean it is a romantic comedy. And a definite comedy it is! With all the family, quips and innuendos, I busted out laughing more than once! Plus this story does some strange twists and turns!

This would be a fantastic read to take on a trip. This story is completely engrossing and easy to get lost in. Don’t miss this!
