Release Day Review! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren




The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Expected publication: May 14, 2019
Publisher: Gallery Books

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 fiancĂ© 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.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren was a fun and hilarious story that kept me entertained from beginning to end. The bantering between Olive and Ethan was something I couldn't get enough of. They were too funny and completely adorable. Their story completely swept me away from the real world, which is something I really needed. I haven't read anything by these authors before, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for more of their work. 

The ARC of The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren was kindly provided to me by the author through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.
