Praise for The Unhoneymooners

This is the book to read if you want to smile so hard your face hurts." (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal )

“Lighthearted, laugh-out-loud funny and all too accessible (as the many Torres aunts and cousins keep butting into Ami's and Olive's lives), The Unhoneymooners is delightful. Olive's initial dislike of Ethan, tempered by her slow realization of his good qualities, makes for a charming and enjoyable romance.” (Shelf Awareness)

With that being said, this book was definitely a miss. I kept waiting for the humor and spark that’s so signature for their love stories and it never happened. The two main characters lacked backbones and even in the end, I’m not sure they really got them.
Readers Digest Version: 2 wimpy assistants (who work for an HGTV-like couple) accompany their bosses (who are married but hate each other) across the country on a book tour. They’re trying to keep it from the public that the stars are on the cusp of divorce. That’s it.
I also had a really hard time reading about their bosses go took up like 85% of the pages. They were straight up emotionally abusive. I’m assuming their situations were supposed to be funny, but they just left me uncomfortable and Disgusted.
Here’s to hoping their next book hits the mark! I believe in their talent. This one just wasn’t for me.
James is my kind of hero, with his hot-nerd thing, and his emotional maturity. I really melted over him when he's talking about designing a way for Carey to hold her pen easier.
Carey is all too relatable, her confidence squished down, thinking she's not enough on her own, even though she's what keeps almost everything moving along.
The structure of this novel, with James and Carey finding a kindred soul in each other and falling in love, while the trainwreck of Rusty and Mel's marriage goes up in flames around them is deftly done. The contrast was stark and made me root all the harder for James and Carey.
Rusty and Mel themselves were a brilliant idea. They're not really Carey's parents, but they're close to it, which allows the reader to see how toxic they are to Carey without the direct on the nose hit of them being her actual parents and the reader over-identifying with that. It was really nicely done.
I know a lot of reviewers here have complained about how Mel and Rusty overshone the main characters, but to me, every part of their relationship (and how it unraveled) is a reflection back on Carey and James. And Carey can't separate herself from them for most of the story, either.
The climax of the story is absolutely outstanding. I love how it was a microcosm of the entire thing.
This novel pulled me right through it, the UST between James and Carey crackled and erupted with the right heat level for the rest of the story.
This is a really well-done book that I am so happy to have read!

Christina Lauren have clearly found a formula for writing sweet and funny rom-coms and they’ve done it again with The Honey-Don’t List.
They’ve got the perfect mix of a lovable heroine; a sexy, nerdy leading man; and a heart warming storyline to make this a very enjoyable read.
Their standalones definitely lack some of the spark and magic that was definitely present in their Beautiful and Dirty Sexy Rowdy series, but nonetheless this is still a good read
I wouldn’t say the romance was a strong factor, I liked Carey and James but I just didn’t feel that build up and chemistry. Tbh I was more into seeing what nonsense Melly and Russ where going to do next as they were a dysfunctional mess and just a nightmare.
Of course Christina Lauren’s wiring is great, its in 2 points of view with also clippings from the media.
Overall I enjoyed the plot and I did get drawn in, I just didn’t find it strong on the romance side
I always enjoy Christina Lauren’s books - they are light, fun, satisfying and pure escapism! I loved Carey and James’ story...James is swoon-worthy! Looking forward to the next!
