Another book read brought to you only because of a BookOutlet sale, an implausible romcom is something I only really enjoy on vacation when I check my brain by the pool and have not paid full price for. This one was ok but I just found it wholly unbelievable and felt like real life and fantasy wedged perilously close to one another in a way that made little sense to me.
Olive is a likable character but she is surrounded by lots of unlikable ones who treat her badly and yet she perceives them as being the successful and secure people in her life. She ends up on a holiday by committing fraud and taking her sister’s honeymoon with her new brother-in-law. The book purports to be an enemies to lovers but really I think Olive and Ethan were just two people who didn’t really know each other well.
I did like the banter and the setting of Maui was perfect for my vacation but I just didn’t root for them as a couple. I liked Olive and wanted her success and happiness but just felt like she would have been better off not getting involved with Ethan and his family. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Already missing the Hawaiian sunshine back here in cold Charlotte, what’s the weather been like where you are?
