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, TheToronto 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.

Praise for The Unhoneymooners “What a joyful, warm, touching book! I laughed so hard I cried more than once, I felt the embrace of Olive’s huge, loving, complicated, hilarious family, and my heart soared at the ending. This is the book to read if you want to smile so hard your face hurts.” — Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal”Witty and downright hilarious, with just the right amount of heart, The Unhoneymooners is a perfect feel-good romantic comedy. Prepare to laugh and smile from cover to cover.” — Helen Hoang, author of The Bride Test”Heartfelt and funny, this enemies-to-lovers romance shows that the best things in life are all-inclusive and nontransferable as well as free.” ― Kirkus Reviews (starred review)“Lauren brilliantly wields familiar rom-com tropes—enemies to lovers, fake marriage, even height differences—to craft a delightful romance that will have readers hanging on every word.” ― Publishers Weekly (starred review)“Sassy and appealing, writing duo Lauren’s ( My Latest Half-Night Stand) latest endeavor is sure to please. A perfect read for beach or poolside, this is one hot summer story not to miss!” ― Library Journal (starred review)”Lauren’s (after Joshand Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating, 2018) latest is a sexy, hilarious rom-com that offers a look into the bonds of a large Mexican-American family and between twin sisters as well as at whether blood is thicker than water. Readers will laugh out loud… Perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Sally Thorne.” ― Booklist“Lighthearted, laugh-out-loud funny and all too accessible (as the many Torres aunts and cousins keep butting into Ami’s and Olive’s lives), The Unhoneymooners is delightful. Olive’s initial dislike of Ethan, tempered by her slow realization of his good qualities, makes for a charming and enjoyable romance.” ― Shelf AwarenessPraise for My Favorite Half-Night Stand “A funny, sexy page-turner that warns: Keep your friends close and their avatars closer.” ― Kirkus Reviews”This is a messy and sexy look at digital dating that feels fresh and exciting.” ― Publishers Weekly (starred review)”You can never go wrong with a Christina Lauren novel… Yet again, Christina Lauren offer up a delectable, moving take on modern dating with My Favorite Half-Night Stand, reminding us all that when it comes to intoxicating, sexy, playful romance that has its finger on the pulse of contemporary love this duo always swipes right.” ― Entertainment WeeklyPraise for Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating “With exuberant humor and unforgettable characters, this romantic comedy is a standout.” ― Kirkus Reviews (starred review)”In Lauren’s hilarious standalone… Lauren finds the perfect balance between charming moments and sultry episodes.” ― Publishers Weekly”Lauren (Love and Other Words, 2018) has penned a hilariously zany and heartfelt novel… the story is sure to please readers looking for a fun-filled novel to escape everyday life with.” ― Booklist”The story skips along…propelled by rom-com momentum and charm.” ― The New York Times Book ReviewPraise for Roomies “This book has everything that makes romance novels great: a heroine’s journey to self-discovery, a leading man worthy of a woman’s love, and plenty of misty tears and full-on belly laughs along the way. Another knockout by Lauren.” ― Kirkus Reviews”Lauren’s standalone brims with authentic characters and a captivating plot.” ― Publishers Weekly (starred review)“For decades, the tale of a marriage of convenience that becomes something more has inspired countless romances.

Look if you are a huge fan of these two authors like I’am than this book is probably going to be a unsatisfying 3 star read .If you don’t know Christina Lauren ‘s writing talent then you might like this read but I’ve read everything they have written and this read was as uninteresting and unimaginable as the title. The story was just juvenile, silly, so surface , no depth, more than half the supporting cast you will never really know and that includes Ethan the main character.I won’t be completely unappreciative because there were a few lines here and there that made me smile but the storyline was overly forgettable. The whole book premise was just dumb and unimaginative, and I didn’t even get a good read on the main character Ethan until the Epilogue, which was so unacceptable. Yes my review is a bit cheeky using “Un “in as many words as I can to match the title but at least I’m making a effort to be clever in my review , I would have appreciated so much if the authors would have tried to make this read a bit clever. So unoriginal, I felt like I’ve read this story so many times.Same overdone story just told with vomit scenes ,paintball scenes and the over use of the word diarrhea. I swear one of these ladies is really into playing paintball because it was a repeat of a overly descriptive paintball game scene that they wrote about a few books back , no more paintball scenes please I beg of you both.Ladies this book is not up to your unbelievable talent , it was unoriginal and you guys are better than this lame read, where was the witty banter , the sexual chemistry and heat and the emotional depth between the two main characters.???Unhappy fan here,underwhelmed read here , please try harder next time because this book was unacceptable for me coming from the duo who wrote so many wonderful well told stories back in the Beautiful Bastard series day .
The Unhoneymooners by Christina LaurenCute. Appealing. Flirty. Sweet. Adorable. A lighthearted romance with all the feels. Their arguing makes this couple real. Ethan is lovable. The supportive extended family is like a hug.I love this author. Such a way with dialogue and encapsulating the story.Written in present tense. I hate present tense. It makes me feel as though I have to hop along the driveway with them. But moving on, it only distracted me a few times so I consider it superbly crafted that I was able to get lost in the movie rather than the sentence structure.Excerpt:“I don’t know how it happens, but one minute I’m struggling to swim faster and the next Ethan’s hand is around mine, helping me move toward a small cluster of gray-dotted o’ili. It’s so quiet down here; I’ve honestly never felt this sort of weightless, silent calm, and certainly never in his presence. Soon, Ethan and I are swimming completely in sync, our feet kicking lazily behind us. He points to things he sees; I do the same. There are no words, no verbal jabs. There is no desire to smack him or poke his eyes out—there is only the confusing truth that holding his hand down here isn’t just tolerable, it’s nice.”I received a copy of this from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.
Might have found it funny if I was a 12 year old adolescent. The humor was so juvenile I couldn’t even finish the book.
Okay. I LOVE CHRISTINA LAUREN BOOKS! While I love some of their books more than others, I consistently know I will get a creative romance read no matter what. This book didn’t remind me of any other book I’ve read, which is saying something since I’ve read hundreds of romance books.When it come to characters, an element I love is close families. Olive’s family may annoy her at times, but at the end of the day, they are the family that supports and loves each other. Something I appreciated about Olive, was that she is still growing. She’s hilarious, and I totally related to her. I always joke that I have the worst luck. Also, I have an affection for bad liars, it really makes for some great comedy! Ethan, Ethan, Ethan. I really wish I had gotten more from him, but I think that is mostly due to it all being in Olive’s perspective. He does give some amazing apologies, so that is a definite plus in the pros column.Plotwise, this is a damn rollercoaster, and I loved it! You’d think with so many things happening, it would be overwhelming, but the authors did a beautiful job of weaving all of the elements together. I was engrossed in this story and stayed up until 4am to finish it. Yeah, not smart, but it just couldn’t be avoided. I just needed to know what happened! So, I read this book in one sitting, and would definitely recommend it to my fellow romance readers!Special thank you to Gallery Books and NetGalley for the free eARC in exchange for an honest review!
If you’re looking for a book that reads like a bad Twilight fanfiction this is your book. The story was extremely predictable and the dialogue was flat and uninteresting. Not one character seemed like an actual fleshed out person and the main character as a bonus was infuriating and unlikable. Also the pacing was not good, things went too fast, then a third of the book is spent on a three day period, then we jump an entire week.I just tried to find something I like about this book and all I could come up with was the cover is fun.
It’s the first time that I read a Christina Lauren book and I was kind of disappointed.I do love the enemies to lovers stories, they make me laugh so much.Do not get me wrong the story is well written, however at some point gives me some feelings of “The Hating Game” and that pissed me off so much.This is the story of Olive and Ethan, whose goes on the honeymoon trip that their siblings suppose to take and due to a food poisoning at the wedding they could not go. So they go to Maui one of the islands in Hawaii. So since Olive is the twin sister of the bride she just took her identity and goes to the holidays.Well these are the things that I did not like from this story is that Olive is just Lucy from the Hating Game and Ethan is just Joshua.And why they are always perfect, he is a total nerd and perfect body as well her why she has to be perfect all the time?I wish I can find a romance book where the main characters are not body perfect. I know that there is something that attract people but really? She looks amazing all the time and he has the perfect abs etc.I know that this is controversial but I never met a nerd that actually is fit.Other thing that pissed me off if that THERE IS A SCENE THAT IS THE SAME AS THE HATING GAME, REALLY? You are in a beautiful island and you go to a paintball battle? De verdad?Summarizing is a easy read? It is. I had fun. I do love the latino family
I absolutely adored the Beautiful series. Everything for me was perfect. Strong characters, sexual tension and steamy sex scenes. In comparison, this was not my preference. Fun characters but not laugh out loud, tiny bits of tension that don’t lead to anything further and a complete lack of sex in the (couple of only!!) sex scenes. If you like your steaminess to be glossed over then this is the book for you. I liked the main characters but I didn’t love them. For me, I think Penny Reid gives better value for money. Sorry, not for me.
Genre: Romance, Humour, FictionRating: 🌺🌺🌺🌺/5Synopsis: Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, 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.🌕 This book achieved one thing; it made me want a holiday to Hawaii. The way the author was able to describe the resort made me wonder if she had this idea while there herself, or just lived vicariously through photos she saw on holiday websites and Pinterest.🌕 I love a yellow cover, and not just because it reminds me of summer. Yellow covers make me happy, they look great on my bookshelf and finger prints don’t show up on them. What’s not to love?🌕 I would have liked the narrative told from both Ethan & Olive’s perspectives respectively, especially since earlier on he was accused of fat shaming. I didn’t feel like the explanations given by Ethan really explained why Olive felt fatshamed, so he always stayed a little bit of a villain in my head.🌑 The ending was very predictable, but, I didn’t hate that. In fact, it gave me closure.🌜4* read. I can’t really fault the book, but, it isn’t quite 5*. I enjoyed it sure, but did it blow me away and leave me thinking about it hours later, no.
Having seen a lot of hype surrounding this book and as a massive Christina Lauren fan I was a little disappointed in this. I’m still scratching my head as to why I didn’t enjoy this more but I think a lot of it is because I feel the two leads didn’t have an awful lot of chemistry. I love enemies to lovers and this should have been right up my street but I couldn’t see the hidden attraction between them and it all felt rather forced and if I’m honest the whole book felt very flat. I think I also missed the dual POV which would have given us a clue into Ethan’s thoughts. Not the worst book ever by a long shot but for me not the hilarious, can’t put it down book I was hoping it would be.
Olive Torres thinks she has the worst luck of all. Her twin sister, Amy, on the other side, wins every contest she enters and has even won herself a free wedding and a honeymoon in Hawaii. Olive’s eternal nemesis Ethan Thomas is present there as the brother of the groom. When everyone but them catches a bad bug at the wedding reception, they venture out on a two-week all-inclusive holiday to Maui. With one catch – they have to pretend they’re newlyweds.I didn’t hate the book, it was actually quite enjoyable (and the audio was really good!). There were all the tropes that usually make a great romance novel – haters to lovers, forced proximity, fake relationship/marriage. But there was also another aspect which I wasn’t a fan of – the insight into Amy’s marriage and how much the last part of the book was focused on that. I would have probably enjoyed it more if it were just about Olive and Ethan’s relationship and how it developed on their pretend honeymoon and after. Obviously, there’s also the aspect of Olive losing her job because she lied to her boss, whom she met in the resort in Hawaii. I liked that she did not immediately get her job back when her boss showed up in the restaurant she worked at.And, in the end, I kind of didn’t want Olive and Ethan to get together. What really upset me was how he never believed her when she was concerned about his brother. In the end, Amy got divorced and exposed him, but Olive’s relationship with Ethan meant that constant proximity to the person who hurt them the most – I didn’t quite like that, but I guess the authors tried to explore the complexity of adultery in marriage and its effects on the people around them. Did it work? Not for me – what we got was a story of a cheater who got exposed. I also would have appreciated a heads up about this aspect of the plot – I assumed this would be very cheerful and breezy, but when Olive and Ethan got back, things got really heavy really fast, which was the reason I ended up giving the book a lower rating.Here are some other things I enjoyed: Olive and Amy’s support network and their family always being there for them; their friendship; the endless banter between Olive and Ethan, but also how their relationship progressed.More things I didn’t like: that we didn’t get parts told from Ethan’s POV (aside from epilogue). It would have been so much better to read his side of the story too and his thoughts on Olive, but in the book we were only privy to her thoughts and opinions. I’d prefer a dual POV story.
