Olive Torres is and has always been notoriously unlucky. From getting stuck in a claw machine to getting fired from her job to being struck by lightning, it seems like something bad always manages to happen to her. So, it should come as no surprise when Olive is forced to go on her sister’s honeymoon with Ethan Thomas, her longtime archnemesis and sworn enemy, when a nasty bout of food poisoning takes out nearly everyone at the wedding. But posing as a married couple is a small price to pay for ten days of paradise in Hawaii, and all Olive and Ethan have to do is survive each other. What could possibly go wrong?

This book was so cute and heartwarming! It was engaging and entertaining, and the pace almost never lagged. There was an almost absurd amount of fluff (no complaints here!), and the banter was witty and sometimes downright hilarious. However, I felt that the book (and much of the reading community) oversold the enemies-to-lovers trope — the dynamic between Olive and Ethan was more reminiscent of an old married couple, and they were never true nemeses. In addition, I felt that the authors tried to pack in too many climactic moments during the second half of the book — and when everything is special, nothing is. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this book, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light, feel-good read.
