The Unhoneymooners
The Unhoneymooners | Christina Lauren
For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetimemaybe even lovein 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 arent affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly theres 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 doesnt 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 Laurens uniquely hilarious and touching voice (Entertainment Weekly), The Unhoneymooners is a romance for anyone who has ever felt unlucky in love.

Olive and her attractive enemy, Ethan, go on her twin sister‘s honeymoon b/c the sister and the groom get sick. During the trip, they get rather close and realize their feelings for each other. Can they put the past behind them though?

I didn‘t really get the hype for this book. I liked the diversity in the characters, but not the characters themselves, especially Ethan. It had a happy ending, and I liked it, but not really how it got there.

This one has been picked for the #TrappedonanIsland more months than once, including this one, so I decided it was time to finally read it!! It's been on my shelf since it was gifted to me by @Chrissyreadit back in August 2020!!

This was a fun enemies-to-lovers/fake relationship read, although I did get a lot of secondhand stress when various lies were being enacted! I really loved the banter between these two characters, and felt like most of ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the “unlikely“ scenarios felt like they could have happened, if that makes sense. I felt like Olive was a little harsh at times, but that's also because we spend the entire book in her head, so there's that.

Overall, a fun and fluffy read!!

TheAromaofBooks I did get a little frustrated with Olive - she and Ethan have a big argument about Ethan's brother and she gets SO offended that Ethan sides with his brother and not her. I get that, I do, and I didn't expect her to cave in and pretend like nothing was wrong. However, when the truth is out and Ethan apologizes... I felt like that was the time Olive should have admitted to herself that she would have acted the same if he had said something about ⬇ 3w
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) about her sister, but instead she just completely blows him off. Part of a relationship is not just being able to admit you're wrong, but being able to show grace to your partner when they admit that they were wrong, and there are multiple situations where Olive obviously has a problem with holding onto a grudge. It was a bit part of her personality that really grated on my nerves. 3w

Trying to get back into the #WeeklyForecast groove!! The top pic is my current TBR, a mixture of challenge reads and random books from my list/shelves. I started the tagged last night. It's been a #TrappedonanIsland book multiple times, including this month, so I think it's time!! Salt & Sorrows and the Heyer are both #LMPBC reads ( @julieclair I forgot to tell you it arrived yesterday!!) and I am hoping to get to them this week. Save the Date ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) is a #Roll100 read. I'll be surprised if I get further than that across the windowsill because I'm also working through this entire stack on the bottom at a chapter(ish) a day for various buddy reads and personal challenges. Frankenstein is my #BookSpin for this month, the next four are all Litsy buddy reads, and the bottom book is Living With Pattern, my current nonfiction read. I loved this author's earlier book, Living With Color ⬇ 3w
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) I'm not resonating quite as much with Pattern, but that could be because I'm more into colors than textures 😂 But there is still a ton of useful and interesting information.

@Cinfhen are you still getting tagged in the #WeeklyForecast posts?? I'm out of the loop so it's okay if the answer is no 😆

The typical 'from hate at first meeting to loving you forever' trope. As much as I dislike cliche romance tropes, the book was decent enough to not 'DNF' it. A mix of a couple of relatable and a couple of absolute jackass characters. A quick casual yet enjoyable read.
3.5/5🌟

Finished my first #trappedonanisland book!

This was my first Christina Lauren book and I really enjoyed it. Having just been to Hawaii, there were a few things that stuck out to me. No way they weren‘t jet lagged going there and I don‘t think they ever put on sunscreen 🤣.

Other than that this book already made me miss Hawaii and I want to go back to Maui. I really liked Olive and Ethan and it really pisses me off when no one believes women.

Really enjoyed this one. A fun enemies to lovers story it kept me entertained during my flight ✈️ . Olivia and Ethan are forced to take a honeymoon trip to Maui even though they hate each other. Predictable in all the best ways 👍👍 . Had to include a photo of the puppy 🐶 I loved 🥰 petting in Calgary.

I picked up “The Unhoneymooners” with high expectations. The overview of the book seemed really interesting to me: Two people that hate each other get to spend ten days in Maui on someone else‘s honeymoon! When I finished reading this book though, I was pretty disappointed. I wasn't invested in the characters and the main points of conflict in the book didn‘t make much sense to me. I‘m sad I felt this way! I wanted to enjoy this book.

2.5/5

Funny, witty and easy predictable read. I enjoyed characters so much and I love how the author combines both fake marriage and enemies to lovers troupe. There's not a lot to say about this book except it's a really good read when you are craving a good romance, and just wanna curl up with a good story and plot. Would definitely recommend for a light read.

I liked this more than I expected I would. I don't tend to like stories where the couple starts out hating each other but it was easy to see early on that Ethan was merely hiding an attraction to Olive. And their sparring was more fun than harsh. I liked the characters, the story, the writing. Fun read. 🤓

I‘m ambivalent about this book. Everyone, including Olive‘s (the mc) love interest and her family, gaslighted her for her entire life. Every time she expressed an unhappy emotion, she was called “negative” & “grumpy”— no matter how justified her feelings were. I saw no chemistry, beyond the physical, between Olive & Ethan, but we‘re supposed to root for them. I can‘t do that. It was funny in a few places. Continued Iron Lake on my #audiowalk.
