The Unhoneymooners | Christina Lauren
60 posts | 49 read | 107 to read
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.

A classic rom com where two people who hate each other are forced to spend time together. In this case it‘s on a trip to Hawaii. The descriptions of the island and their adventures is half the fun. I love Ethan and Olive‘s snarky antagonistic relationship. Olive‘s strong supportive family is another highlight of the book. I loved that Olive stands up for herself and doesn‘t cave when she feels strongly about something. A perfect summer read!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fun #summerromance! I enjoyed every second of this. It‘s also the first physical book I‘ve read in years. I‘m a kindle and audiobook addict but I started feeling like my kids are associating my kindle with being on my phone or iPad and I need to set a better example. This was a great book to get back in the habit!

BooknerdsLife I have this on my TBR too. And it has such a pretty cover 😍😍 I would love to have a physical copy of this one too 🤗 2d

Honestly, I was really looking forward to this book (and I LOVE the cover), but it was a big bust for me. The relationships in this book didn‘t make sense to me. A relationship is nothing without trust and that‘s all I‘ve got to say about that.

The “Unhoneymooners” is a cute romcom - didn‘t blow my hair back, but it was a light, amusing “listen” while I puttered in the garden.

4/5

This is a super cute romance. It was a very timely read because I'm planning my wedding and Maui honeymoon right now. I'm definitely going to have nightmares about wedding food poisoning, but my buffet will not have seafood, so hopefully we're safe.

I got a little frustrated by how the sisters in the book treated each other, especially since they were described as being really close, but in the end everything works out. I really enjoyed it.

This is my May reads. 8 books.

I haven‘t read a single book this week for #BFC, and that includes finishing The Unhoneymooners I started Friday(?). I have been so busy with family enjoying the weather (both play and yard work). ☀️ On the plus side, I have been having fun and being active. My kids have school today so this is what I‘m doing until they get home. Then we have another busy week ahead of us. 😴 #BookFitnessChallenge

I brought The Unhoneymooners for the flight and finished it over the weekend. It was the perfect book to have brought: Light, fun and delightful. I loved it! Loved the Biltmore Estate too!

Whenever I am in the mood for a sexy, laugh out loud Rom Com I know which author I need to read. Christina Lauren and they didn't disappoint. Olive and Ethan can stand each other and their siblings are getting married. When all the wedding guest but them get food poisoning they are talked into going on the honeymoon. The more they get to know each other the more they realize that they don't really hate each other at all!

Two crazy kids agree to faux honeymoon together. Cuteness ensues, dreams of babies are conceived (not really but I object to the trope that all romance novels go to weddings. What is that??), brother‘s are determined to be scoundrels, jobs are found, jobs are lost, Hawaii is visited. What more could you want?

Oh and it‘s Christina Lauren. Brilliant writers! To the moon, Alice!

P.S. to the makers of Litsy, can we get a “love it” button! 🤓♥️

This was absolutely brilliant! I was dying over all the Minnesota references!!!!! This is the story of what happens when you meet a guy at the Minnesota State Fair, he judges you for enjoying cheese curds, your twin sister marries his brother, and then you get stuck on a very tight flight to Maui with the guy you've hated since the cheese curds because everyone at the wedding got sick from a seafood buffet.

Schnoebs @Birdsong28 I‘m using this for an author who uses a pseudonym for #52booksin52weeks I‘m pretty sure Christina Lauren counts 🤷‍♀️ 3w

I‘ve read and collected almost every Cristina Lauren book that has been published (there are a couple more on my e-reader) but I think I‘m done now. The sizzle of their Beautiful/Wild series has been replaced with much tamer young adult material, cute while you‘re reading it, but uneven in quality and pretty forgettable in the long run. Really wanted to love their latest but frankly, pretty mediocre as far as Romances go.

I struggled a little with this a little. The story started out slow for me and a lot of the time Olive annoyed me. It was clear that her strong dislike of Ethan (and his apparent reciprocation of the feeling) came from misunderstandings and lack of communication.

However, with the bright cover and enemies-to-lovers trope (one of my favorite), this is a good beach read that you can escape into for a little while.

I know better than to start a Christina Lauren book before bed. I never learn! Work will be rough today but I had been saving this ARC for a night when I needed a pick me up. When food poisoning strikes down everyone at Olive‘s sister‘s wedding she ends up on her honeymoon with the best man, Ethan, who is also her nemesis. I didn‘t love everything about this book but it was funny, filled with great banter, and just the escape that I needed.

My sister in law and I are tight, but we have completely opposite pop culture tastes. I like dark and tragic, she likes light and fluffy. I like characters from faraway times and places and cultures, she likes ones she can relate to. I like movies and tv, she likes podcasts and music. Contemporary romance novels are the only thing we agree on. We‘ve been swapping recipes as we both read Jasmine Guillory‘s foodcentric Books!
