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.
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 summer time is my favorite time of year to read all the romance novels. So with all of the different people raving about this book, I knew I had to pick up The Unhoneymooners.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were funny and entertaining. I adored the hate to love trope, plus a little bit of fake dating thrown in there. I thought it was such a fun romance. It will full of the miscommunications and misunderstandings, which I usually don’t like, but in this case I did. I enjoyed it because they only hated one another because of these miscommunications and assumptions. Once they finally found themselves together and required to talk, they cleared some things up and realized they got along pretty well.
I’m going to keep this review short and sweet because that’s what this book was. It was sweet and realistic and I enjoyed it. It’s not my new favorite book in the world, but I had a fun time reading it.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
