Review: My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren



Christina Lauren


By the New York Times bestselling author who “hilariously depicts modern dating” (Us Weekly), My Favorite Half-Night Stand is a laugh-out-loud romp through online dating and its many, many fails.

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.

Perfect for fans of Roxanne and She’s the Man, Christina Lauren’s latest romantic comedy is full of mistaken identities, hijinks, and a classic love story with a modern twist. Funny and fresh, you’ll want to swipe right on My Favorite Half-Night Stand.


MY FAVORITE HALF-NIGHT STAND is a fun book about 2 best friends secretly hooking.

Millie is a fan of female serial killers and she has 4 best friends that are guys. She adopted this guy group because she was originally dating a guy who was friends with these 4 guys. When they broke up the guy group kept Millie as part of the break-up collateral.

Reid is one of the 4 guys in the group. His connection with Millie has always felt a little more. More attraction, more interest, more tension, etc.

When these two start hooking up on the sly they do it so as not to ruin their friendship since this thing between them is just a casual thing.

An event comes up where they need a date and they decide they should try online dating. This is where stuff starts to go haywire. Millie decides to make a fake account and she matches with Reid….but she doesn’t tell him it’s her. That leads to a total hot mess of a situation.

MY FAVORITE HALF-NIGHT STAND is a standalone. A humorous tale of two friends discovering their perfect match is each other. From sneaking around to hook up TO being each other’s perfect match on the online dating site, even though one of them has made a fake account. As always, Christina Lauren delivers another FUN romance. Millie & Reid are great for giving readers a book full of fun antics.
