Funny. Heartwarming. Cute. Entertaining. Filled with family/friend drama and witty banter — what more does one want from a beach-y summer read? Not much, if you ask me. The Unhoneymooners hits the mark on everything I was looking for in terms of a fun summer read. Christina Lauren has done it again.

While Christina Lauren’s novels aren’t known to be thought-provoking or inherently original, as they all revolve around romance and drama, they’re always so entertaining! Not only that, but all of their characters feel unique from their other novels; there’s no recycling, if you know what I mean.

In terms of this novel, Olive was a wonderful main character. I was a little unnerving how similarly I process things mentally, as she does; perhaps I am a little wary of world and quick to be negative? That said, I don’t think her way of thinking is wrong, it’s just different. And while on the topic of Olive, I must mention Ethan, because it’s no secret that the novel revolves around their relationship — and let me tell you, it’s a great one. You can really feel the connection between the two. Ethan has to be my favorite male character Christina Lauren has written; he’s almost too perfect, which I guess he is, considering he isn’t real. Unfortunately. One can dream, though.

This isn't going to be a long review, because I feel as though much of the story can be spoiled if I start talking about instances that had me laughing or swooning, but I really think many of you will love this story. Especially if you're already a fan of Christina Lauren or contemporary romance, read this book!
