The Anti-Honeymoon by Bethany Michaels


by Bethany Michaels
Publication Date: March 16, 2020
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Lovestruck, Contemporary, Romance, Romantic Comedy


No groom? No Problem.

When her fiancé tries to turn their wedding into a publicity stunt, Jenna ditches the nuptials—and the groom she shouldn’t have been with in the first place—and skips straight to the honeymoon. The getaway driver, her ex-fiancé’s former business partner, Zach, is the perfect guy to help reshape her romantic newlywed itinerary into an anti-couple, anti-romance, anti-honeymoon adventure for two.

They trade couples yoga for kickboxing lessons. Five-star dining on the beach for pizza and beer at a dive bar. Forget couples massage—Jenna’s getting that tattoo she’s always wanted, and dares Zach to get one, too. And those naughty boudoir pics she took in place of romantic sunset snaps? Those aren’t going in anyone’s wedding album. Not that Zach will forget them anytime soon.

As each item on Jenna’s anti-couples list is checked off, the anti-honeymoon with Zach feels more and more like the real thing, and she wishes the list was just a little bit longer…and even steamier.

I enjoyed The Anti-Honeymoon so much. This was my first book by Bethany Michaels, but the premise of the book sounded interesting so I gave it a try and I”m so glad I did.

Jenna is engaged to Elliot, why I have no idea since he has no redeeming qualities, and makes the impulsive decision to literally leave him at the altar. She’s looking to make an escape and with Zach, who she thinks is an Uber driver, gets out of there.  Zach ended up being a former business partner of Elliot and their friendship was on the rocks as well.

Zach is happy to help her get away safely, but once they’re at the resort, he doesn’t really want to leave, making them decide to spend Jenna’s honeymoon together, replacing all the couples’ activities with ones that are not, thus labeling it The Anti-Honeymoon.

The chemistry between Jenna and Zach is apparent from the beginning. I was rooting for them right away. Zach is a good guy and Jenna is in desperate need of one. The only thing I worried about is what would happen when their time together was over.

Can they maintain a relationship in the real world? Will their personal baggage get in the way and is Elliot really out of the picture? Find out when you read The Anti-Honeymoon. I give it 5 stars and highly recommend it. I would love a novella for these two just to see their lives together in the future.
