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.

Meh

Really wish the narrator was a woman and a man instead of the guy sounding like a prepubescent teen. The story was meh, alright. Prefer her Beautiful Bastard series.

Good story, hard to listen to.

This is cute story. I enjoyed it. I wish it was a different narrator. Her male voice is awful and hearing her breath through her nose is tough to listen to. The “guy’s voice” is the voice women use when mocking men.

première expérience d'audiobook

J'ai adoré l'histoire mais j'ai eu de la difficulté à apprécier la lecture. il s'agissait de ma première expérience d'audiobok et je ne suis pas encore si j'aime. J'aurais voulu que les répliques d'Ethan soient lues par un homme plutôt que d'avoir la lectrice changer un peu sa voix. C'était peu convainquant ...

Cute

Enjoyable, easy listen. The narrators voice when she tries to do a male voice is a bit distracting but otherwise would recommend!

LOVED IT!

Such a cute story! It got a bit i cliché in the middle, but not for long. With a few twists in the plot and some witty lines, this story makes for a pleasant afternoon or beach read.

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!

The Unhoneymooners

I loved it, everything about this book I loved, I loved the characters the fact that they are twins. The brother, the family the lucky or unlucky storyline. I felt terrible for Olives sister but it was a great twist and it really got the story off on the right foot. Ethan stole the show for me he really is an awesome character, I was rooting for him right from the get-go. How it all plays out and the epilogue freaking fantastic, I really enjoyed this book can you tell? The narration was great I enjoyed it and since most of the book was narrated by Cynthia it was interesting I don’t believe I have listened to any of her books before but I will be looking for her from here on out. Also, Deacon’s performance was grand.

Predictable, AWFUL MALE READER

While this was mildly entertaining, it was insanely predictable. Story was half baked, fine, but not great. Cynthia Farrell did a great job of reading Olive’s part- she would get 5 stars, but the entire relationship between Olive and Ethan was ruined by Deacon Lee. Deacon would get zero stars for his narration. Deacon was slimy, short, and did not convey Ethan’s personality the way Cynthia did. The overall story idea was “cute” but that’s not enough for me to want to listen again.

Cute, but Tiresome...

This is an adult romance, but it’s written more through the eyes of teenagers. There’s a great deal of self-doubt, on-going negative comments and a general sense of immaturity. Cute, but predictably tiresome.

Fun but predictable

I was looking for an easy summer read and thought The Unhoneymooners would be perfect. Even though the story was predictable, overall I enjoyed it. The only issue I had was with the narrator. As soon as she did her voice for Ethan she lost me. It was so bro-ey (surfer frat boy?) sounding I was immediately put off by his character. Who talks like that?! I was distracted by the voice for the first half of the story and cringed every time she did his voice. I got used to it toward the end, but I felt I would have enjoyed the book more if I read it.

Not my favorite by this writing duo

Christina Lauren books are an automatic download for me, but I've found the last couple to be less than stellar, this one included. It wasn't bad, just not great. I didn't feel very invested in the characters and found the "hating" over one moment from years ago was overdone and went on far too long. Even when Ethan had proven to be a decent guy, the enemy role kept creeping in, which became annoying, rather than a build up with fun banter. When an entire story is built on simple misunderstandings, which seem easily resolved, it reaches a point of being tiresome. I didn't love the drama with the secondary characters - the siblings - which also seemed to be a stretch to add another layer to the story. Certainly provided some entertainment for a long commute, but not what I'd hoped for.

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.
