Rating: ★★★★★

Anyone ever just laugh so hard while reading a book, that the person next to you must ask, “are you okay?” That’s exactly what happened to me while reading The Unhoneymooners. This book had me completely laughing out loud throughout the entire book.

I connected with Olive so dang much, it’s not even funny. While I was reading, I kept saying to myself, “did they base this character off of me?” Yes, that is a lame attempt at a joke because Christina Lauren does not know me, anyway, I really enjoyed Olive and her witty personality. Ethan was just as witty, but I really connected with Olive.

The storyline was great, it had it all, comedy, love, and a little bit of drama to sprinkle in and give it that completeness. I enjoyed this book so much and was able to turn off my kindle when I was finished with a smile on my face, all because I was very satisfied.

5 Stars!

the unhoneymooners

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.
