Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Amy, 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.

Another fantastic, funny, enemies to lovers rom com by the dynamic duo, authors Christina Lauren. I can always count on their creative collaborations to make me laugh out loud and The Unhoneymooners is no exception.
Olive and Ethan are great characters. The push/pull is terrific. The banter is witty, sarcastic and filled with innuendo. I love the premise of this story. It’s fresh and original. I liked that there was also some drama that involved Olivia and her sister. It added angst. But not too much.
Authors Christina Lauren had me laughing out loud, shaking my head and cringing in embarrassment for the characters at times. Great story about family, love and being your own person. Definitely recommend.
