From the Author
The Honeymoon Prize is a stand-alone story, one of four in a themed series called The Honeymoon novellas. I had so much fun writing about Addie and Nick and their honeymoon on Starfish Island. I love marriage of convenience stories and this one made for a honeymoon of inconvenience between two friends since kindergarten. I must admit, I was ready for a tropical vacation myself by the time I wrote THE END!

If you don’t mind reading about characters constantly lusting after each other and don’t mind characters with modern morals (e.g having sex before marriage), then you might enjoy this book as the author writes well, has likeable characters and her books are usually well edited.
Unfortunately this author is linked together with other authors who write cleaner, and in some cases Christian Inspirational fiction, which is how I bought this series by mistake. It also didn’t help that the other couple of books of hers that I had read were clean.
So while this book was not for me, I hope this review will assist other readers with determining if it is a book for them.
At 45% there were no sex scenes and I don't believe that there will be any in the rest of the book.
Nick Cahill doesn't believe that love and sex belong in the same thought, much less the same relationship. His parents' marriage was disaster and his own fiancee was a lying cheater. In fact, the only relationship he has ever been able to count on all of his life has been his friendship with Addie. So when his boss implies that he either needs a wife or a new job, Nick finds the perfect solution to both his and Addie's problems. A marriage based on friendship without sex. However, as they arrive on Starfish Island for their "prize" honeymoon, Nick and Addie both realize that keeping their marriage platonic is going to be a lot harder than they had originally thought.
This story tested my boiling point. Probably because Estate Law in and of itself boils my blood. Ms. McClone did a wonderful job creating one of the most heartbreaking, and all too real, situations faced by non-inheriting caretakers. My heart was ripped out for Addie, and I wanted to reach through the pages and slap her family.
Now to the warm and fuzzies. The scenery in this book was beautiful! The descriptions made me want to hop on the internet and book a vacation to Fiji, forgetting that I don't exactly have three grand to blow at the moment.
I loved how Nick and Addie interacted with each other. Once they remembered that they were still friends, their banter was fabulous. Even their interaction with the supporting characters was better when they remembered that they were friends. I loved Brad and Mama Lani most of all because they were true to their character stereotypes, but still made to be interesting.
Overall, this was a great quick read that will make you wish you had more books just like it.
I can't believe I read this whole book and never got an actual steamy scene. Like, I read for hundreds of pages about how they're both idiots who didn't know what love looks like and how they're also physically attracted to each other but they're JUST FRIENDS and they finally (finally) get together and the book ends with some random epilogue about Emily and Brad. Who Emily doesn't even end up with in her book. What a waste of potential.

The fake relationship thing has always been a favourite of mine, because it's predictable and safe - you know exactly what you're getting. However, the reasons behind this one were sketchy and unclear. I liked Addie's backstory, but Nick's was a bit unbelievable. I also felt that we could have had a little more of a lead-in rather than just go straight to being on Honeymoon - I felt like I had just sat down to watch a movie but it was half over.
The chemistry between the leads was good, but the premise behind the show was daft - it would have been the most boring show on earth going by the footage we were privy to. All of those Reality TV shows have "to-camera" pieces, and we didn't see any of that. What was the name of the show? The angle? What was the purpose - just two people on an island? No drama, no plot, no other contestants?
It was fine, it was sweet, and it wasn't explicit (should that be a concern), but it definitely could have been a lot better.
Shout-out to the line "Brides were his worst nightmare since Carrie" which I thought was a weird Stephen King reference until I remembered who Carrie was in this context, it really made me laugh.
The Honeymoon Prize (Ever After Series Book 1) by Melissa McClone is a sweet romance that is perfect for sitting down in a cozy chair to while away a couple of hours. I thought the story was elegantly told and the romance, as well as the location, was beautiful.
I really enjoyed this book, the characters were believable, and although the plot was somewhat predictable, it was still a very enjoyable read and one I like very much. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
This was a sweet, straightforward story, which gave me a few butterflies. Both characters are pretty solid, and we get some back story on their friendship, as well as see through their verbal banter that they have great chemistry.
It was a quick, fun read!
