[Review] The Unhoneymooners – Christina Lauren

The Unhoneymooners – Christina Lauren

New Adult, Romance

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.


Who doesn’t love a good enemies-to-lovers with lots of humour? I laughed out loud so many times while reading this novel.

Another book that I was scared to pick up because of all the hype around, but oh I was not disappointed at all. This book is probably going to be one of my favourite summer read from now on. It was super funny, and I absolutely adored both Olive and Ethan. I wish we had more chapters from the POV of Ethan though.

The whole storyline was perfectly conducted, and the ending couldn’t haven’t been more perfect!

It was only my second book by Christina Lauren, and I can’t wait to read more of their work because they are truly amazing at storytelling.

I understand the hype around their books now, even though I completely missed the hype around “Love and Other Words” (review).

100% recommending this one if you’re looking a summer book.
