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.

"I really enjoyed this light, easy and witty book. I love the banters between them. I love her family, they're incredibly supportive (can't relate). My only problem is the main guy Ethan... he was so annoying at the ends But overall would recommend this to those who are starting out or in a reading slump."
"Super awesome story... from hate to love...from assumption to truth...if you are in a reading slump, this is a perfect book to help you with that...light, funny, enjoyable, page turner...simple a must to read 🙂...even better if you have a chance to get into audio, please do !!! Highly recommend !! 👍👍"
"This felt like a bunch of fanfic ideas compressed into one book, with some other stray ideas. It was enjoyable, of course, but I felt like the backbone of either the story or the plot was lacking in some form. <br/><br/>I liked the enemies to lovers aspect of it. I was able to suspect that one liked the other but I wasn’t sure, which is good. <br/><br/>The climax made sense. It built up well. <br/><br/>Seeing the final chapter in Ethan’s perspective was a bit jarring. It was a little much, but it worked out. <br/><br/>I feel like Lauren wrote a book about the other twin. She was only included enough to seem like a cameo. Her being able to pay for her entire wedding with coupons was so unbelievable though."
"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Cute, if not predictable and campy which is almost always a guarantee with a romcom. I enjoyed it nonetheless. I laughed out loud at the chapter with the paintball fight. Held my interest the entire time. Loved the relationship development between Ethan and Olive, not too fast and not too slow. "
