  • 5 stars for the excellent banter alone!

    Overall Rating: 5 stars for the excellent banter alone! I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who likes pretty much any type of romance. Do I recommend it?: ABSOLUTELY! Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy Writing: 5 stars, wonderfully written, no faults at all. The characters were rich and their growth during the arc of the story was beautiful. But the banter, people!, I usually don’t enjoy romantic comedies that much, but this had me literally LOL. Story/Plot: 4.5 stars, while the plot overall has been done before, this just felt fresh. Loved Christina Lauren’s take on it. Characters: 5 stars just for Olive alone. I loved her, her character development was perfect. Emotions: 5 stars, no silly drama, but my gosh, the FUN these 2 were together was magic. Flow/pacing: 5 stars, this book flowed perfectly, from the snark to the banter to the romance. Steam: 4 stars, while the romance was sweet and sexy at times, the love scenes were fade to black for the most part. The only reason I really noticed it was because I wasn’t expecting that from Christina Lauren. HEA: Yes Will I read this author again? : Most definitely. Christina Lauren are pretty much auto-buy authors for me.

  • The Unhoneymooners

    Oh my goodness! This one was so good I read it practically in one sitting and would have if life wouldn't have intruded (drat that job!) but I highly recommend picking this one up immediately! Olive is the unlucky twin (and always has considered herself to be so) and now she is standing up for her twin sister (the lucky twin) at her wedding. That is okay except the best man is her nemesis and the brother of the groom. Spending 24 hours with him is bad enough but when they are the only ones who are not struck with food poisoning at the reception and the honeymoon to Hawaii is up for grabs and the bride and groom insist they take advantage of it, all bets are off. How are they going to spend two weeks together? Easy, all they have to do is there there and sleep in the same room, that is until forces beyond their control in the form of Olives new boss and Ethan's former fiancee are at the same resort. Oh no! They are now forced to actually act like honeymooners! Cozy and loving and everything! This was smart, witty, FUN, sexy, and oh-so hilarious, I found myself giggling and the dogs looking at me with their heads tilted. Such perfect banter, the pages few by until I thought my kindle was going to combust. This is a standalone and would be a perfect beach read but would probably induce sunburn because you would not want to put it down. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

  • Let's go to Hawaii!

    I had fun with this romance! I have seen so many glowing reviews for books written by the writing duo of Christina Lauren over the past couple of years. I have really wanted to give their work a try but for one reason or another, this was actually the first time I actually fit one of their books into my reading schedule. I will be honest in that this was not earth-shattering in any way but I thought it was a fun enjoyable read. Romance with a bit of humor and great banter? Sign me up! This book did have a lot of great elements despite the fact that there really weren't any big surprises in the story. This wasn't the kind of book that had me laughing out loud but I found several sections of the book rather amusing. Olive and Ami are twins. The book opens on Ami's wedding day. Things go poorly at the wedding leaving everyone ill. Since the bride and groom can't go on the honeymoon, the Olive and Ethan, the groom's brother, go in their place. Oh yeah, Olive and Ethan don't exactly get along so it should prove to be an interesting trip. I liked Olive and Ethan and thought that they worked well together. I thought that they had some great chemistry and I enjoyed their banter. It was very eye-opening to learn a bit about their history as they dealt with some of the situations they encountered on their trip. I think that this story was really at its best when the focus was completely on Olive and Ethan without mixing in any of the complications they had to contend with. I thought that there were times where the story got a little unnecessarily complicated. I really would have loved to see these two at the resort without dealing with people from their lives popping up all of the time. I am also not completely sure that I wanted Olive to forgive Ethan at the end of the book. His mistake was a pretty big one and I am not sure that I would have been able to get over it if I were in her shoes. These are really minor things that didn't have a big impact on my enjoyment of the book. I would recommend this book to others. I found myself wanting to take a trip to Hawaii because of some of the descriptions in this story. I had a great time watching Olive and Ethan fall in love and can't wait to read more from this writing duo in the future! I received a digital review copy of this book from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books via NetGalley.

  • What a fun book!

    I always know I'm going to enjoy a light and funny read when I crack open a Christina Lauren book. Romcom is my favorite genre to read solely because it takes me away from the stress of real life. I've learned that this author can deliver every time. This is an enemies to lovers trope that took me by surprise with how they became enemies. I was baffled for the first half of the book by what truly caused Ethan to switch his emotions like he did. Once we learned the true reason, I wasn't expecting it. I liked the twist in the story even if it is a bit angsty, and I love when a typical trope can surprise me. Due to Ethan's snub of Olive, I had a slow burn love for his character. I loved Olive immediately but you also get to know her better as the story progresses. When they are forced together on their siblings honeymoon, you really get to see more depth to both of their characters. They were fun when they were full of enemy snark and they were adorable when they become an actual couple. They are flawed characters and I liked that about them. This also had some fun side characters. If you want something fun with a bit of angsty twist to the plot, I highly recommend The Unhoneymooners.

  • Hilarious and romantic

    I love Christina Lauren books. There’s something so whimsical and hilarious about them. The Unhoneymooners might be my favorite of theirs yet. The Unhoneymooners follows Olive, the unlucky twin, who after being miraculously spared from a massive bout of food-poisoning at her sister’s wedding, finds herself on her sister’s free honeymoon in Maui. There’s only one problem, she has to share the trip with her sworn enemy, Ethan, the best man. The stringent rules of the all-expenses paid honeymoon require Ethan and Olive to pretend to be married, or be forced to pay the full cost of the vacation. As Olive begins spending more time with Ethan, she realizes that he’s not actually that bad, if fact she discovers that she’s actually a big fan. Olive was such a great character. The book is told in first person from Olive’s perspective. She’s frustratingly believable, both funny and stubborn. I felt so incredibly bad for her at the beginning of the book, but as the story went on, her unlucky stride tended to come in spurts as opposed to the constant stream that seemed to be her life. Ethan annoyed me at the beginning, but I definitely warmed up to him the more Olive did. This book definitely has some swoon-worthy moments between the two of them. My favorite part of the book is Olive and Ami’s big, wonderful family that really looks out for one another. There’s a lot of ups and downs for both characters in the books and whenever anything goes wrong, the entire family shows up with food and love and support and it’s so sweet and comforting. I loved this story and I definitely recommend it to other romance lovers!
