Everything about Christina Lauren’s The Unhoneymooners makes me happy.
The cover. Hubba hubba.
The premise. It’s a fake romance between two adversaries who just want to cash in on the honeymoon that their respective food-poisoned siblings—married to each other—can no longer go on.
The heroine. Defensive, funny, and passionate, who makes sometimes makes snap judgments but is working on it, dammit.
The hero. Stuffy, but only around her, who is not unreasonable but who does believe buffets are death wishes for everyone and that's just a fact.
Other things to mention: the humor, which is out of this world, and the fantastic way the authors have drawn the family dynamics here. It feels authentic with their fights and their squabbling and their digs at other’s expense, but it’s also lovely.
What a wonderful escape.
Q: Would you pretend to be someone else--like your twin sibling--to go on a free vacation? I think I would, but I would be terrified. *still a goody-goody.
