    Great characters. I want them for my friends

    Five educated people who are close friends. They work at the same university. Four great guys and one great girl. Just friends. Millie is just one of the guys. You know the kind who go out for coffee and play Monopoly with. There's a big party that they all have to go to and they need a date. Reid is a tenured professor in neuroscience and Millie teaches criminology. She loves serial killers. While playing Monopoly, Millie sees Reid as more than her best friend. One night they hook up, but promise that It won't change their friendship. Since all five are single, they decide to join a dating agency. Mollie creates a fake profile as well as one in her real name. Her alter ego gets matched with Reid. Will he be mad that Millie deceived him? Will they get a second chance for love? Really fun book. Loved all the guy friends. I want friends like that. I received this book from Net Galley and Gallery/Threshold Books for a honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Best friends to lovers!

    Millie Morris is an UC Santa Barbara professor, single and best friends with 4 other professors who all happen to be guys. They treat her like one of the guys too. When the gang realizes that they each have to have a date for a formal work event, they all decide to join a dating app. On the same night, Millie and her best friend, Reid Campbell, end up hooking up. Reid has always been drawn to Millie but she has a problem letting people in to her intimate thoughts and that really bothers Reid. After a spectacular night together, they decide to just stay friends because they don't want to lose their friendship. Millie sets up everyone's profiles on their accounts but didn't set up a real profile for herself. Millie ends up getting garbage replies back so she decides to set up a real, honest profile but with using her middle name. Imagine her surprise when she is matched up with Reid. These two set about having great conversations because Millie can hide behind her unknown account. Reid is enjoying conversing with "Cat" and another woman, Daisy, which makes Millie jealous. Even though these two agreed to keep their relationship platonic, they hook up again. As feelings deepen, Millie must decide if she can open up for real and give Reid what he really wants from her before he finds out that she really is Cat. Of course best laid plans don't always work out and it takes a huge leap of faith from both Millie and Reid before these two can get their happy ending. I just loved this story. Because of things from Millie's past she has a problem being open with people but Reid just wants to bring those walls down and love her. Millie just wants to be loved but is just afraid. This was a fun story, a little "You've Got Mail"ness to it. I loved the texts back and forth between everyone....it added a fun, quirkiness to the story. Overall, I highly recommend this story.

    Amusing, smart, and adorably romantic!

    My Favorite Half-Night Stand is an engaging, witty, friends-to-more romance that features the spunky, intelligent Millie whose finding it harder and harder to keep her attraction for her best friend a secret, and the charming and honest Reid who may finally realize everything he’s ever wanted or needed is standing right in front of him. The writing is whimsical and crisp and uses a delightful mix of text messages, group chats, snappy dialogue, and first-person narration from dual points of view. The characterization is spot on with an incredible cast of characters who are quirky, charismatic, and genuine. And the plot is an irresistible blend of shameless flirting, friendship, family, light drama, tricky situations, spirited shenanigans, awkward moments, steamy romance, and the hilarious ups and downs of online dating. I’ve always been a fan of Christina Lauren novels, and My Favorite Half-Night Stand has just become my new favourite. It’s outrageously funny, deliciously swoon-worthy and without a doubt one of the best rom-coms I’ve had the pleasure to read this year.

    So entertaining!

    What an entertaining group of friends! I loved the main couple but I loved the group of friends just as much. The fact that they all decided to join a dating app so that they would have a plus one for a work event was pretty comical. Sometimes I struggle with a friends to lovers story because you gotta get that transition just right to be believable. I admit, at first I thought things were just a little too easy, but the more we learn about Millie and Reid the more believable these two were. This is the third book I've read from this writing duo and after finishing this book, it made me think about why I've loved all three so much. I realize they have been like a sneak attack. They start out light, funny and very entertaining. Then as the story progresses, I start to see a subtle shift to a more serious side that just pulls me right in. It surprises me to get that serious look into these light and funny characters and I love when a book surprises me. This was a fun story and I can't wait to see what these authors bring next.

    Hilarious take on the online dating scene

    My Favorite Half-Night Stand, written by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, who is better known as Christina Lauren, is a friends to lovers romantic comedy that has a hilarious take on the online dating scene. This is the first book by this author that I have read, and I was unable to put it down…read it in a day and a half. Millie is a well-respected college professor, her field of study is female serial killers so she smart, right? Well, she may be book smart, but not so bright in her personal life. She experienced a major tragedy during her childhood which has resulted in her being emotionally stunted, not letting friends get to know the real Millie. Although Millie is flawed and did some unacceptable things I did like her, for me, it just made her character authentic. Her four best friends, all guys, Reid, Ed, Alex and Chris, are also professors at the same university. They are all cute somewhat geeky guys. I really love the relationship that they all share and felt that they all really care about one another. Reid and Millie share a special bond, best friends absolutely, and then there was that little misstep of that half night-stand. I definitely agree with Millie, Reid is both brilliant and beautiful. The group needs to find dates for at the university’s formal event, with no prospects they turn to an online dating site. That's when things get interesting. Profiles are written, with some get more attention than others and some getting unwanted attention, which had me cracking up. Millie and Reid get tangled up in the online dating scene which creates some fascinating complexities in their friendship. There is so much more I could write about that, but I wouldn't want to ruin the fun of the read. I loved the whole storyline of this book. These authors did a super job of inserting pop culture references throughout this well written well thought out book. Character development was expertly done, the characters growing and maturing throughout the book. Written from a dual point of view, which happens to be my favorite, the authors uniquely give the reader a glimpse of the innermost thoughts of these two very complex characters. In conclusion, My Favorite Half-Night Stand was a fun, sexy read with the perfect amount of angsts. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. ***I kindly received an ARC of this book by way of NetGalley/publisher/author. I was not contacted, asked or required to leave a review to read this book. I received no compensation, financial or otherwise. This review is my honest opinion .***
