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.

Fairly standard rom-com type novel, where the conflict arises mainly from misunderstanding and miscommunication. It's fine, and entertaining enough, I read it all on one Sunday afternoon; but I'm definitely going to forget all about it in another 2 weeks.

This was a hilarious read, and I loved it even more that the characters lived in the Twin Cities and I could picture the places they mentioned in my mind. Made it tie in for me.

This was a hoot! I found a new favorite writing team along with believable, hilarious, and sweet contemporary romance. I loved the characters and the hate at first sight build up to head over heels falling in love. Witty dialogue and a good narrator made this super easy and fun to read, perfect to curl up with on a rainy day and imagine Hawaii.

Not my favorite Christian Lauren, but still fun. Made me yearn for a trip to Hawaii... maybe I was just too jealous of the characters to enjoy it.

Two sparring in-laws pose as a romantic couple to keep a honeymoon package.

Way too simplistic prose and the plot was not deep at all. Was not enjoyable and it is surprising that people enjoyed this book.

This is a light hearted little romance with some fun moments and the classic trope of enemies-to-lovers. I lost interest at the very end, but up until the 'epiologue' I was excited to read it.

If you are looking for a that will make you laugh and feel all the things then look no further! Because this is it!
Olive and Ami are identical twins. Olive is at one of the lowest points in her life, while Ami has just planned the wedding of her dreams all for free. Olive has always been a bit pessimistic and since that attitude attracts bad things she has to spend the wedding the grooms brother Ethan, who treats her terribly and she hates. But just when she thought she has it bad everyone at the wedding except her and Ethan get sick from the food. The plus side is they have the opportunity to take the honeymoon in Maui. The catch pretending it’s their honeymoon.
Of course shenanigans ensue and we end up with quite a love story!
