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, The Toronto 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.… (mais)

Fun rom-com, but the title part of the story was too fluffy compared to the more meaty beginning and end. ( )

Olive is serving as maid of honor for her twin sister, Ami's wedding. She must unhappily spend time with Ethan, the much hated brother of Ami's new husband, Dane. When everyone at the reception except for Ethan and Olive get food poisoning, they are the only two left to go on the nonrefundable honeymoon to Hawaii. The more time Olive and Ethan spend together, the more barriers break down between them, but what happens when they return home to the reality of a lie they told Olive's new employer and the possibility of Dane's infidelity?

Olive and Ethan are likable characters in this fun, fast-paced romance. The dialogue between them is snappy, snarky, and down right enjoyable to read. Depth is added to the story with the addition of some serious topics at different points in their relationship, which also makes this a much more believable story. The only sticking point I have is the lie that she tells her perspective boss at the beginning of the story, but otherwise this is an entertaining and amusing romance. ( )

Cute rom-com that was funny, especially the first half of the book. I loved the snarky comments between the two main characters Olive and Ethan. The subplot worked well too. I felt for both characters and kept wishing they would just talk about the stuff that was bothering them. A little bit of communication would have gone a long way. But then the story wouldn't have been as good.

Perfect beach read with great characters and a good plot. Enough happened that I stayed interested all the way to the end. ( )

A 3.5 I guess. I definitely don’t feel like rounding it up to a 4.

I’m always very excited to read a book by CLo and this was no different. I had already read a bunch of mixed reviews, but I knew to expect quite a bit of fun and I’m glad I did.

Olive is an interesting character. Bad luck seems to follow her always and her messy stories were too much fun. But she also has a happy go lucky vibe to her which I really enjoyed. Despite the antics of her various family members, she is super close to them, especially her twin Ami and I loved how they all really have each other’s backs regardless of the issue. I just had a slight problem with her feelings around her weight - she seems to try to be body positive sometimes, but is also very conscious of what Ethan thinks of her curves. While I don’t think it’s bad to want her love interest’s approval, I just didn’t like that she seems to lose all her negative feelings about her weight as soon as Ethan mentions he likes her body. Ethan comes across as grumpy initially, but I liked the way their friendship develops and their banter is really hilarious and so much entertaining to read. He’s also quite nerdy which endeared me to him a lot. But his blindness to his brother’s douchey attitude wasn’t a good look.

As I mentioned before, Christina Lauren are wonderful at writing banter and making the readers laugh and that’s still the case in this book. Even the situations that Olive and Ethan get themselves into are so convoluted, they were just downright silly but fun to read and I’m quite amused at the author duo for coming up with these ideas. The pacing is also very quick and easy to get through, that I almost raced through the book. The setting of Maui and the various activities make for a nice backdrop for the enemies to lovers and forced proximity tropes. However, I didn’t like the way the conflict happened. There are some very harsh words thrown at Olive, by both her sister and Ethan, and I hated that no one even wanted to understand her perspective. And I thought she was too forgiving while I would have liked some more groveling. It ends with a very cool epilogue though, so that makes up for some of the issues.

While I always seem to be nitpicky with this author duo’s books, I am happy that The Unhoneymooners ended up being more on the fun side. It has a wonderful couple, a beautiful love story and a huge dramatic family. If you like snarky banter in an exotic vacation setting, then this is a fun book to read. If you like books where silly antics ensue and there’s some family drama going on, then this one is perfect. Just trust me and pick this one up when you are in need of an entertaining romcom or a beach read. ( )

I read a romance novel. I don’t read romance novels. I used to think “Ew, is this a kissing book???” but not now. 2019 Chelsea has apparently evolved and now doesn’t mind “kissing books.” This one was wicked cute and involved all my favorite fanfic-worthy tropes: enemies to lovers, fake marriage, etc, etc. It was also well written and, while I don’t normally enjoy it, the first person present tense fit the story well. The author used it to perfectly create a sense of a story unfolding as you were reading rather than something that Olive was retelling after the fact. ( )

In the calm before the storm---in this case, the blessed quiet before the bridal suite is overrun by the wedding party---my twin sister stares critically down at a freshly painted shell-pink fingernail and says, "I bet you're relieved I'm not a bridezilla."
