The Unhoneymooners

This book was a breath of fresh air. Hilariously funny, a little bit sad, and deliciously sexy, The Unhoneymooners, by Christina Lauren, kept me entertained from cover to cover. The pen name is actually a combination of the names of co-authors, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings. The two are writing partners, best friends, and internationally bestselling authors.

Olive’s twin sister, Ami, just got married. Everyone at the reception, including the bride and groom became violently ill by contaminated food. Everyone, that is, except Olive and the groom’s brother, Ethan.  Olive and Ethan tolerate each other.

Ami insists on Olive taking their non-refundable Maui honeymoon trip to Maui that she won in a sweepstakes. Meanwhile, the groom offers the trip to Ethan. The two decide they can both take the trip, and stay out of each other’s way. Things get interesting, however, when they have to pretend to be married and in love. Will they go from tolerating to enjoying each other, to love? Or will they remain The Unhoneymooners? Read this delightful book and find out.

    • lots of split infinitives;
    • coming vs. going;
    • misplacement of the word “only” within sentences;
    • missing commas.
