About the Book



"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."--

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.



Review Quotes



Praise for Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating

"With exuberant humor and unforgettable characters, this romantic comedy is a standout."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Praise for My Favorite Half-Night Stand

"A funny, sexy page-turner that warns: Keep your friends close and their avatars closer."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for Roomies

"This book has everything that makes romance novels great: a heroine's journey to self-discovery, a leading man worthy of a woman's love, and plenty of misty tears and full-on belly laughs along the way. Another knockout by Lauren."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"For decades, the tale of a marriage of convenience that becomes something more has inspired countless romances. With Roomies, Christina Lauren put a fresh, modern spin on the trope with their completely un-put-down-able green card romp.... Lauren masters rom-com banter and plotting, while also reminding us that the best entries in the genre are all about recognizing our own value regardless of relationship status. One of our 10 best romances of 2017. A+."-- "Entertainment Weekly"

"Heartfelt and funny, this enemies-to-lovers romance shows that the best things in life are all-inclusive and nontransferable as well as free."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"In Lauren's hilarious standalone... Lauren finds the perfect balance between charming moments and sultry episodes."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Lauren (Love and Other Words, 2018) has penned a hilariously zany and heartfelt novel... the story is sure to please readers looking for a fun-filled novel to escape everyday life with."-- "Booklist"

"Lauren brilliantly wields familiar rom-com tropes--enemies to lovers, fake marriage, even height differences--to craft a delightful romance that will have readers hanging on every word."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"Lauren's (after Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating, 2018) latest is a sexy, hilarious rom-com that offers a look into the bonds of a large Mexican-American family and between twin sisters as well as at whether blood is thicker than water. Readers will laugh out loud... Perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Sally Thorne."-- "Booklist"

"Lauren's standalone brims with authentic characters and a captivating plot."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"Lighthearted, laugh-out-loud funny and all too accessible (as the many Torres aunts and cousins keep butting into Ami's and Olive's lives), The Unhoneymooners is delightful. Olive's initial dislike of Ethan, tempered by her slow realization of his good qualities, makes for a charming and enjoyable romance."-- "Shelf Awareness"

"Sassy and appealing, writing duo Lauren's ( My Latest Half-Night Stand) latest endeavor is sure to please. A perfect read for beach or poolside, this is one hot summer story not to miss!"-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

"The story skips along...propelled by rom-com momentum and charm." -- "The New York Times Book Review"

"This is a messy and sexy look at digital dating that feels fresh and exciting." -- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"You can never go wrong with a Christina Lauren novel... Yet again, Christina Lauren offer up a delectable, moving take on modern dating with My Favorite Half-Night Stand, reminding us all that when it comes to intoxicating, sexy, playful romance that has its finger on the pulse of contemporary love this duo always swipes right."

-- "Entertainment Weekly"

Praise for The Unhoneymooners

"What a joyful, warm, touching book! I laughed so hard I cried more than once, I felt the embrace of Olive's huge, loving, complicated, hilarious family, and my heart soared at the ending. This is the book to read if you want to smile so hard your face hurts." --Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal

"Witty and downright hilarious, with just the right amount of heart, The Unhoneymooners is a perfect feel-good romantic comedy. Prepare to laugh and smile from cover to cover."--Helen Hoang, author of The Bride Test

After reading every Colleen Hoover book I was searching for a new author and a friend suggested Christina Lauren. This was the first of theirs I’ve read and have to say I loved it. Read it in a few days and would def suggest it!

Oof, I don’t understand the hype for this book. I REALLY wanted to DNF about 2 or 3 chapters in, but I pushed through because I loved a different book by Lauren. Some of the storyline is so outrageous and unbelievable, it’s laughable. I found the main character, Olive, almost insufferable. I warmed up to Ethan at some point in the book, but the character development in the beginning was really lacking. Overall, I’d skip this book. I loved “Love & Other Words,” but this book is a gigantic miss.

I’m all in for easy romance reads but this book gave it all away. From the first chapter you can predict everything that happens 😞. Too boring - I couldn’t finish it .

I honestly didn’t think that I would like this book. After chapter 4 it became abundantly clear that I was wrong. It’s funny and charming and I’ll be on the lookout for more great books from this talented duo.

Literally could not put this book down after I started. It’s super witty and easy to follow plus it’s an enemies-to-lovers trope and who doesn’t love that??

Fast and easy read I read it in one day. I like it, after reading the Spanish love deception and love hypothesis and it ends with us this love story is nothing remotely beautiful as theirs lol sorry but it was good. At first I didn’t like the guy he did seem like a jerk but then it changed mid book and then in the end I hated him a lot but then you’ll find out why. It’s bittersweet.
