The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

“Before I picked up The Unhoneymooners, I had read several more serious books, and I was looking for a change. The Unhoneymooners was just what I was looking for…a cute, fun, lively, romantic escape from everyday life. I loved the characters, their banter, the setting, and the predictability of the book. I could definitely see this being made into a very popular rom-com movie!” – Nancy, Adult & Teen Services
