Review: The Unhoneymooners




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.

Rating: 5-stars


The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren is one of the most hilarious and emotionally entertaining reads, I have read. I was hooked from the beginning. The motivations and emotions of the characters were clear. I wanted to learn as much as possible on the characters. The was a huge family theme. Olive Torres and her family were wonderful to follow. The sisters had a way of creating tensions, conflicts, and emotions. Both good and bad.

Olive Torres was was easy to love. She believed she was nothing but bad luck. But in this novel, her bad luck was just starting to fade and good luck was on the horizon. Until she finds out more on her brother-in-law. From there everything stable fell apart. It was up to fate, luck, and the hearts of Olive and Ethan to decide.

The final outcome was just as good as the rest of the book. I could not stop reading this story. Christina Lauren is the all time winner in the best contemporary romance genre. I have read many novels like hers but none of the were as good as hers. The writing had a way of pulling me into the characters lives and into the plot. The plot and internal narratives were amazing. I laughed, cried, and fell in love multiple times during this read. Overall, I highly recommended this hot, sexy tale to all.
