Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, 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.(Goodreads)
A fun enemies to lovers book, with the typical Christina Lauren charm
I adore Christina Lauren’s books and this is no exception, in fact, this might be my favorite. This as an enemies to lovers rom-com so obviously I was going to like t a little bit, but it was even better than I expected!
Olive reminded me a lot of well me, the phrases she used and the Harry Potter references. I loved it all. Ethan was pretty darn near perfect. I swear he was the most mature and reasonable guy I’ve ever read about.
The story starts out as you might expect, but I have to say the ending was surprising in a good way. I really enjoyed this one and if you too have an enemies to lovers obsession, you will too
