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.

Booklist Review
Olive Torres' string of bad luck continues when she is laid off right before her twin sister Ami's wedding, where, also unluckily, she has to squeeze herself into an unflattering, cleavage-bearing, Skittle-green bridesmaid dress and stand up next to the groom's brother, Ethan, who is her archnemesis. Things get worse when the newlyweds get food poisoning, and instead of letting the Maui honeymoon go to waste, they insist that Olive and Ethan go instead. They just have to pretend to be married. 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 as Olive and Ethan have to keep up the ruse of being married, which is further complicated by running into Ethan's ex-girlfriend, Olive's new (as in the day they left for the honeymoon new) boss, and a couple's massage. Perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Sally Thorne.--Erin Holt Copyright 2019 Booklist
