Review From User :
never in my life have i read a book that had the same sense of humour as me - until now. this is honestly one of the funniest books i have ever read. i was giggling like a dweeb pretty much throughout the entire thing. gosh, its such a depressing thought to know i will never be as funny as olive and ethan.
the charming humour aside, this might be the best execution of the enemies-to-lovers trope since 'the hating game.' is everything in the story convenient sure. is it super emotionally compelling not really. but it absolutely nails the fact that relationships dont work unless you know your partner on a friendship level. and i love the natural connection that developed between olive and ethan.
my only complaint would be that the ending is a little rushed. there is a massive shift in story dynamic when olive and ethan return from their trip (almost feels like an entirely seperate story) and it just feels like it ends too soon. i think there are some things that could have been explored more and i honestly wouldnt have minded a longer book. oh well. still a fantastic story overall!
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 fiance 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).
Expand text… 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.
