Hey there book friends!
Today, I'll be discussing Christina Lauren's latest novel: The Unhoneymooners.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in 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 and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests. 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, 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. But the weird thing is that she doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, she feels kind of... lucky.
Will there ever be a book by this duo I don't enjoy? The answer is PROBABLY NOT.
The Unhoneymooners was as wonderful as I expected it to be, and it just might be one of my favorite C.L novels (along with Josh & Hazel) of all time.
Christina Lauren's latest release follows the story of Olive Torres and Ethan Thomas, two sworn enemies who decide to go away together when their siblings' all-paid honeymoon is up for grabs. The pair can't stand each other but are forced to act like a couple when they run into Olive's boss and Ethan's former girlfriend. Soon, Olive and Ethan are doing everything they can to keep up the charade: scuba diving, boating, and lots of PDA...
The Unhoneymooners is the ideal summer read. It's comical, light-hearted, and effortlessly romantic. The writing is captivating & easy to follow and the characters are lovable & memorable. I, without a doubt, recommend this pick to all my fellow romance readers and anyone looking for the perfect summer read.
