Title: My Favorite Half-Night Stand 
Author: Christina Lauren 
Pages: 384
Publishing: December 4th 2018 by Gallery Books


Millie Morris has always been one of the guys. A UC Santa Barbara professor, she’s a female-serial-killer expert who’s quick with a deflection joke and terrible at getting personal. And she, just like her four best guy friends and fellow professors, is perma-single.

So when a routine university function turns into a black tie gala, Mille and her circle make a pact that they’ll join an online dating service to find plus-ones for the event. There’s only one hitch: after making the pact, Millie and one of the guys, Reid Campbell, secretly spend the sexiest half-night of their lives together, but mutually decide the friendship would be better off strictly platonic.

But online dating isn’t for the faint of heart. While the guys are inundated with quality matches and potential dates, Millie’s first profile attempt garners nothing but dick pics and creepers. Enter “Catherine”—Millie’s fictional profile persona, in whose make-believe shoes she can be more vulnerable than she’s ever been in person. Soon “Catherine” and Reid strike up a digital pen-pal-ship...but Millie can’t resist temptation in real life, either. Soon, Millie will have to face her worst fear—intimacy—or risk losing her best friend, forever.


Ya'll... I keep thinking that one day I'm going to be totally let down by one of Christina Lauren's books, BUT TODAY WAS NOT THAT DAY! My Favorite Half-Night Stand was laugh out loud funny and had me turning pages late into the night. I absolutely loved the characters and felt like they were a mix between Friends and The Big Bang Theory. I looooooved his novel! 

From the very first page, I knew I was going to love Millie. What I didn't realize was how much I was going to love every single freaking character. They were all loveable and so entertaining. I enjoyed the chat convos between the group and I felt like that mixed media added a little extra something to the novel. This was hands down my favorite Christina Lauren novel and I would highly recommend it. Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 5/5
