Swipe right on My Favourite Half-Night Stand – a funny, fresh romp into the ups and downs of online dating that’s sure to make you laugh out loud.
Millie Morris has always been one of the guys. A professor at a respected university, she’s great at witty backchat but terrible at getting personal. Like her four best male friends, she’s perma-single. So when a routine university function turns into a black tie gala, they all make a pact to join an online dating service and find plus-ones. There’s just one hitch: after making the pact, Millie and one of their group, Reid Campbell, secretly spend the sexiest half-night of their lives together, before deciding the friendship is better off strictly platonic.
But online dating isn’t for the faint of heart. While the guys are inundated with dream dates, Millie’s profile attracts nothing but creeps. So she invents an alter ego in whose make-believe shoes she can be more vulnerable than she’s ever been in person. But when Reid and her alter ego hit it off, Millie finds herself struggling to resist temptation – both online and off. Soon, Millie will have to face her worst fear – intimacy – or risk losing her best friend for ever.

I have always wanted to read Christina Lauren’s books and I got hold of this book!
Millie Morris is someone who has guy friends than girls as friends. She hangs out with her fellow colleagues at UCSB–Reid, Ed, Chris and Alex and Millie has a crush on Reid. One night, Reid and Millie sort of have a night stand and since then Millie has feelings towards Reid. Then an important event is coming up and the friends are looking for dates and soon try out online dating.
This story is told from the perspectives of Millie and Reid, though Millie is the main character here. The story is quite funny and is quick to read, which is the good thing in the book. The characters, particularly Millie and Reid were likable and though I am not much of a romance fanatic, I truly enjoyed reading this book. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book! Worth five stars!
