Sooo…July didn’t just suck for me, right?

I read one book. Granted, it was a five star read. But still. Only one book.

I will be doing a full review of this book in a few days.

the unhoneymooners

the unhoneymoonersThe Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
on January 1st 1970
Goodreads
five-stars

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.

This book was exactly what I thought it was going to be and it was perfect. I will admit that I wanted just a little more in the steamy department, but it was a really good rom-com. If you are looking for a fun, light read during these bleak times, I highly recommend this one.
