Rating: 5/5

“It's the strangest feeling to be proud simply because I'm taking care of me and mine. Is this what it's like to grow up?”

Olive feels like she's unlucky and her twin sister Ami is the luckiest.  Ami has a good job, the best finance named Dane, wins lots of contests including a honeymoon to Hawaii. When everyone at the wedding except Olive and Ethan, the best man, become gravely ill after some bad seafood that means a honeymoon to Hawaii is up for grabs.  Ethan and Olive, who are mortal enemies, decide to go on the trip poses as Dane and Ami.  What could possibly go wrong in this situation?

What's not to love about enemies to lovers and fake relationships.  I loved every single thing about this book. It made me laugh.  It made me cry.  Then it made me laugh some more.  Not only did I love watching the relationship between Ethan and Olive develop over time but I loved the personal growth that Olive had throughout the book too.  I was sad when this book was finished.  My only complaint is that I am made at myself for not reading it sooner.  It had been on my to-be-read for quite awhile. Dear Universe, please make this into a movie so I can laugh and cry at the box office.
