THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews * Publishers Weekly * Library Journal Named a "Must-Read" by TODAY, Us Weekly, Bustle, BuzzFeed, Goodreads, Entertainment Weekly, Publishers Weekly, Southern Living, Book Riot, Woman's Day, The Toronto Star, and more! 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.… (lisätietoja)

A 3.5 I guess. I definitely don’t feel like rounding it up to a 4.

I’m always very excited to read a book by CLo and this was no different. I had already read a bunch of mixed reviews, but I knew to expect quite a bit of fun and I’m glad I did.

Olive is an interesting character. Bad luck seems to follow her always and her messy stories were too much fun. But she also has a happy go lucky vibe to her which I really enjoyed. Despite the antics of her various family members, she is super close to them, especially her twin Ami and I loved how they all really have each other’s backs regardless of the issue. I just had a slight problem with her feelings around her weight - she seems to try to be body positive sometimes, but is also very conscious of what Ethan thinks of her curves. While I don’t think it’s bad to want her love interest’s approval, I just didn’t like that she seems to lose all her negative feelings about her weight as soon as Ethan mentions he likes her body. Ethan comes across as grumpy initially, but I liked the way their friendship develops and their banter is really hilarious and so much entertaining to read. He’s also quite nerdy which endeared me to him a lot. But his blindness to his brother’s douchey attitude wasn’t a good look.

As I mentioned before, Christina Lauren are wonderful at writing banter and making the readers laugh and that’s still the case in this book. Even the situations that Olive and Ethan get themselves into are so convoluted, they were just downright silly but fun to read and I’m quite amused at the author duo for coming up with these ideas. The pacing is also very quick and easy to get through, that I almost raced through the book. The setting of Maui and the various activities make for a nice backdrop for the enemies to lovers and forced proximity tropes. However, I didn’t like the way the conflict happened. There are some very harsh words thrown at Olive, by both her sister and Ethan, and I hated that no one even wanted to understand her perspective. And I thought she was too forgiving while I would have liked some more groveling. It ends with a very cool epilogue though, so that makes up for some of the issues.

While I always seem to be nitpicky with this author duo’s books, I am happy that The Unhoneymooners ended up being more on the fun side. It has a wonderful couple, a beautiful love story and a huge dramatic family. If you like snarky banter in an exotic vacation setting, then this is a fun book to read. If you like books where silly antics ensue and there’s some family drama going on, then this one is perfect. Just trust me and pick this one up when you are in need of an entertaining romcom or a beach read. ( )

I read a romance novel. I don’t read romance novels. I used to think “Ew, is this a kissing book???” but not now. 2019 Chelsea has apparently evolved and now doesn’t mind “kissing books.” This one was wicked cute and involved all my favorite fanfic-worthy tropes: enemies to lovers, fake marriage, etc, etc. It was also well written and, while I don’t normally enjoy it, the first person present tense fit the story well. The author used it to perfectly create a sense of a story unfolding as you were reading rather than something that Olive was retelling after the fact. ( )

Super cute beach read that actually had me laughing out loud here and there! Definitely somewhat predictable but it was perfect to read on vacation! ( )

The number of times I choked on my food laughing while reading this book...Oh, how I wish there was a sixth star option.

What an adventure this was! Ethan and Olivia's characters were so carefully crafted, it was just so wonderful!

They went from hating each other and getting stuck in a honeymoon trip for two weeks, and then they got closer and closer, and before they knew it, they couldn't live without the other and Ethan was confessing his undying love after a small bump on the road.

It's rare a book makes me laugh out loud, and that's exactly what this one did, and for that alone The Unhoneymooners deserves a special place on my bookshelf. I will never forget this spectacular novel, and I will miss reading about Ethan and Olivia so, so very much!

Thank you, Christina Lauren, for sharing this wonderful work with us, and making me laugh for hours as I read through this humorous piece. ( )
