About the book:
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.
Olive and Ethan, arch-nemesis, are thrown together when her sister and his brother come down with food poisoning and must forgo their paid honeymoon. So the trip doesn’t go to waste, Olive and Ethan take their places. Of course, the more time they spend together the more they realize their first impressions may have been wrong, and the sparks of hate between them switch to-like-to-passion and love. Loved the fun journey with all the banter and humor! Christina Lauren make me laugh! Fun/hilarious times: getting ready for Ami’s wedding (Spanx and hairspray!), Ethan and Olive changing in the bathroom, and the couple’s massage! Lol and yum!
Gotta say, I hated one male in this story with a passion! I was a little disappointed with Ethan’s denial about the situation. While I would’ve been happier with just a little bit more groveling, I was still ecstatic it all worked out. Loved Olive’s family; how they showed up circling the wagons when anyone was hurt or in need!
Enemies-to-lovers is one of my favorite troupes, even better when the couple is forced to spend time together! If you love a slow burn romance with fun banter, and emotional depth The Unhoneymooners will not disappoint!
