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 are 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.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher, NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
As a long time fan of Christina Lauren writing duet, I was excited to get to this book. My thoughts on this book, after reading their other works? It was awesome! There were laughs through out and it was definitely page turning!
I loved Ethan and Olive’s characters. They really made the book pop. They were enemies, but, taking on a honeymoon just might be what they needed to get them on the same page. Watching the banter between them, seeing them interact on the “unhoneymoon” was fun and refreshing and had me falling in love with them! I found myself cheering for them to overcome their enemy status.
Christina Lauren has once again created a 4 star novel that will grip you from start to finish. Where you land? Well, you just don’t know until you grab this page turner for yourself! Get lost among a great group of characters and enjoy the ride. You won’t be sorry!
