Review: My Favorite Half-Night Stand is the third book I’ve read from Christina Lauren. If you don’t know about Christina Lauren, it’s actually two authors Christina and Lauren. Their newest contemporary romance novel follows Millie and her four single guy friends who make a pact to find dates online for an event that will contain a world-class speaker. Millie seems to have more success matching her single guy friends with dates, but doesn’t seem to have any success of her own. Well that is until she decides to make a fictional dating profile and matches up with someone she talks to everyday in real life. Overall, I was pretty disappointed in this book. I usually love Christina Lauren books, but this one just didn’t cut it. The main characters, Millie and Reid, are so unlikable. The authors say they are in their late 20s and early 30s, but they act so immature for their age. Even though there are alternative perspectives of each main character, I didn’t really see a huge distinction between the two. There are parts of the story that don’t flow as well. The ending was rushed and not well thought out. Not to spoil anything, but it seemed the authors were trying to wrap everything up on a nice bow of a pile of a mess. I would recommend skipping this book as Christina Lauren have other great contemporary romance novels to check out like Dating You Hating You and Josh and Hazel’s Guide To Not Dating.
