This book was absolutely hilarious! As someone who also deems herself to have quite bad luck, I related a TON to this book as I read it and loved the face that I legitimately laughed out loud while reading.
This was a quick read for me. I read it in one sitting and it was one of those that just left me full of happy.
Olive and Ethan were a hoot. They were the enemies that you knew were going to be more as soon as you read their first interaction. There was that chemistry that dabbles the fine line between love and hate.
Throw in a big twist that you really don't see coming towards the last 30% and I was completely enthralled in this read.
Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Amy, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé 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). 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.
