Title: The Unhoneymooners
Author: Christina Lauren
“It’s so exhausting pretending to hate you.”
After everyone in the wedding party gets plagued with food poisoning, the best man, Ethan, and the maid of honor are the only ones left to take advantage of an all-inclusive trip to Hawaii. Although they are sworn enemies, the two decide to put their differences aside and enjoy the free trip together. Their plans to avoid each other are soon ruined when Olive, the maid of honor, runs into her boss and lies that she is on her honeymoon. As Olive and Ethan pretend to be a loving couple, they soon learn that they may be more compatible than they once thought.
“It’s the strangest feeling to be proud simply because I’m taking care of me and mine. Is this what it’s like to grow up?”
I can’t get enough of this book. I have read it twice already and will probably soon read it for a third time. Christina Lauren knows how to write romantic comedy books. She has a way of making the characters relatable and creates playful moments that make you believe there is no one else in the world more suitable for them than each other. The Unhoneymooners is not a very spicy book, but it still has a lot of intense moments that will make your heart flutter.
“I get the bedroom and Netflix, and you wander the island to check on your hidden horcruxes.”
One of my favorite things about this book is how funny it is. On multiple occasions it had me busting out laughing. Olive’s sarcastic humor had me crying. I’ve included a few of my favorite quotes in this review, but there are so many others that you will have to read the book to see!
“I can appreciate my body in a bikini and still want to set fire to the patriarchy.”
My only complaint about this book is I wish it was longer. I think the ending could have been lengthened out a bit to give more of a conclusion, but overall it was still an amazing book!
