If you’re ever looking for something that is going to make you laugh, you never have to look farther than a Christina Lauren novel. This writing duo has mastered the art of rom-com in book form and My Favorite Half-Night Stand is one of their best. Millie Morris is a professor in California who loves her job, her friends, and her life, but she can’t shake the nagging thought that her love life isn’t exactly where she wants it to be. With that thought lodged in her brain, combined with a night of too much wine, she breaks the age-old rule of not blurring that line of friendship with her best friend, Reid. They both agree it’s never going to happen again but things start getting heated in more ways than one when their university’s annual benefit turns into a black-tie and date situation and Millie’s friends all decide they need dates to it. Real ones. Now Millie finds herself caught in a situation that is quickly flying out of control as a one-time-fling seems to be stuck on repeat, and she can’t decide what it is she should do, let alone what she really wants from Reid. This book is a perfect break from reality, and I think we’re all overdue for that break right now! You’ll laugh, cry, and feel your heart grow three times its size. The perfect book for a sunny afternoon hanging at the beach or swinging in your hammock.

— From Katie


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.
