Plot- 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.
SHIT THIS BOOK is downright so FUNNY . I mean the first few pages give a glimpse of how our lead MC has a downright unlucky life but moving fast forward when she meets the super cute yet very arrogant jerk , Ethan . The writers bring out the most loved trope in the reading history , Hate to Love trope. A humorous enemies-turn-lovers romance fills out the first half of The Unhoneymooners. It’s engaging, funny, and sexy. When I say “Funny”, I mean immensely and totally funny with the engrossing read. The Book does not only revolve around the romantic theme . But it has various other dynamics including Family , Relationships, life as a Adult in the world . I enjoyed reading Olive’s Perspective and I found her to be very quirky and cutesy . It was laugh out loud funny, it was romantic and swoon worthy, and I really shipped this enemies to lovers dynamic. I never wanted to leave Olive, Ethan, or Hawaii, and I think this is just going to be the ultimate beach read .
“The problem with lying about relationships is that humans are fickle, fickle creatures.”
And I truly believe the banter in this book is the best that these authors have ever crafted. It’s smart, witty, and truly hilarious. I also just loved Olive and Ethan as characters so much, and I easily shipped them together; maybe harder than any Christina Lauren characters. The setting was perfect, the plot was genius, and this was just an overall really easy book to escape into and love.
One of the funniest , light hearted read !!
