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.

FANTASTIC!!!

A well-written and perfectly narrated story. The story centers mainly around Olive and the relationship that develops between her and Ethan. As she gets to know Ethan she also gets to know herself separate from her relationships with others and the importance of truth and honesty, communication, false assumptions and when it's smart to risk forgiveness.

Love love love this book

They did it again! I love these authors! The book is light hearted, romantic, funny and and easy listen. I wish they had a male Narrator not just at the end bc his voice could have been less “valley girl” and hotter. But I loved this book couldn’t stop listening!

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!

Wowza!

Talk about about roller coaster ride through hell, heaven and then again hell! Olivia and Ethan took the honeymoon Intended for the respective siblings who were married, but got food poisoning and couldn't go on their honeymoon. The only problem was Olivia thought Ethan hated her and he thought she hated him. Once again Christina Lauren delivers a heart warming story filled with humor and romance! Loved 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.

Funny, Realistic, and Sweet

This was such a good story. I enjoyed the humor, as I always do with Ms. Lauren’s books. I loved that the story line was realistic and believable. The romance was a little messy and challenging, but not in such an over-the-top dramatic way that it felt manufactured. Coming from a large family myself, I found the interactions between Olive and her family members to be hilarious and familiar. I love how the characters were imperfect and recognized this in themselves, developing over time. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I will just say that the epilogue sealed the awesomeness for me. Imperfect perfection. I will likely re-listen to this one in the future.
