Bookreview: The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

When you finish a book and just feel completely gutted that it's over... That is what a 5-star book is to me and I had just that with The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. This book is praised on social media, people call it thé beach read of 2019 and I couldn't agree more.
