Publisher's Summary

For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetime - even love - in this witty and swoon-worthy romance from the New York Times best-selling duo who “hilariously depict modern dating” (Us Weekly) and authors of Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating and Roomies.

Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in...well, everything. Her identical twin sister, Amy, 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.

With Christina Lauren’s “uniquely hilarious and touching voice” (Entertainment Weekly), The Unhoneymooners is a fun and charming romance that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt unlucky in love.

Cute, fun story. PG-13 sex, like a rom-com movie.

I loved Cynthia Farrell, but I couldn't get into Deacon Lee. I like enemies-to-lovers stories, and I liked that this spent more time on the sexual tension and romance between the characters than the sex.

Cute, in a creepy way.

I am not a "romance" reader. I do have the Audible romance package. Weird, huh? I don't mind a good story with some romance thrown in. A book with a story that can hold it's own without trash talk and erotic sex to get it through. This book was just that. It was a great book! I laughed! A LOT!!
I highly recommend this book if you are in the mood for some humor, and a little fun chick-lit. The narrators were great too!

Cute, but Tiresome...

This is an adult romance, but it’s written more through the eyes of teenagers. There’s a great deal of self-doubt, on-going negative comments and a general sense of immaturity. Cute, but predictably tiresome.

Fun but predictable

I was looking for an easy summer read and thought The Unhoneymooners would be perfect. Even though the story was predictable, overall I enjoyed it. The only issue I had was with the narrator. As soon as she did her voice for Ethan she lost me. It was so bro-ey (surfer frat boy?) sounding I was immediately put off by his character. Who talks like that?! I was distracted by the voice for the first half of the story and cringed every time she did his voice. I got used to it toward the end, but I felt I would have enjoyed the book more if I read it.

Surprised at how bad this is....

Boring story and unlikable characters with zero chemistry. I"m really surprised Christian Lauren wrote this...The narration was also not great. I like my narrators to sound age appropriate but she sounded 50.

Not my favorite by this writing duo

Christina Lauren books are an automatic download for me, but I've found the last couple to be less than stellar, this one included. It wasn't bad, just not great. I didn't feel very invested in the characters and found the "hating" over one moment from years ago was overdone and went on far too long. Even when Ethan had proven to be a decent guy, the enemy role kept creeping in, which became annoying, rather than a build up with fun banter. When an entire story is built on simple misunderstandings, which seem easily resolved, it reaches a point of being tiresome. I didn't love the drama with the secondary characters - the siblings - which also seemed to be a stretch to add another layer to the story.
Certainly provided some entertainment for a long commute, but not what I'd hoped for.

Great book!

I loved this book. It’s laugh out loud funny and I will definitely listen to it again. The narrators did a great job with voice changes and inflections. I’ll look for another book by this author.
