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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Nobody does beach-ready romantic comedy like Christina Lauren, and this book is no exception. When Olive’s twin sister and her new husband get food poisoning from the seafood buffet at their wedding reception, Olive gets to go on the unlucky couple’s nonrefundable Hawaiian honeymoon in their stead. Unfortunately, so does Ethan, Olive’s longtime nemesis and brand-new brother-in-law. The catch? The pair have to maintain the fiction that they’re happy newlyweds. Theater actress Cynthia Farrell perfectly captures Olive and Ethan’s saucy one-liners and will-they-or-won’t-they banter. Her narration makes The Unhoneymooners a hilarious, effervescent listen about finding love in the unlikeliest places.

This is a lighthearted and funny book!
This book is a bit predictable but a funny story about changing circumstances. If you are looking for a lighthearted and fun book read this!
Knocked a star for the narrator
The book itself is cutesy - sweet and easy to root for the characters, while still feeling like somewhat relatable normal people.
However, some of the other reviews mentioned the narrators voice being distracting or hard to listen to, and I would agree. I felt like the voice was not a good match for the main male character, and she made him sound like a flat voiced frat dude. For all the other characters, the narrator was also rather flat. Not a huge deal, but does the book a bit of a disservice. I wish I had purchased the physical book instead of the audiobook version.
Absolutely loved this book! I laughed out loud numerous times and couldn’t wait to read another Christina Lauren book!
