The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Olive is unlucky in love. She has a twin for whom everything is always amazing and perfect. That is up until her wedding day. When the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, Olive and the best Man Ethan are the only ones spared.
Since the bride and groom can no longer go on the honeymoon, they offer it to Olive and Ethan so that the prepaid non-refundable trip doesn't go to waste. Despite hating each other, Olive and Ethan take them up on the offer and fly to Hawaii for a week in the sun while pretending to be honeymooners. Of course eventually sparks fly and lines blur.
What I loved about this particular rom-com was that it felt a little more grounded, despite the absurd premise. I also liked that the book didn't end with the honeymoon and them riding off into the sunset. We follow the couple through some bumps and bruises along the way after the fact as well.
While parts of the story were a little predictable, overall it was a genuinely adorable rom-com.
