Traveling Sisters Book Reviews

Traveling together through books. Join us on our adventures through the books we read

Happy Sunday!  It’s that time of the week where we sister up with Kim @ It’s All About The Thrill and Christina @ Recipe and A Read with another Sunday Sneak Peek into a highly anticipated upcoming group read and give a little sneak peek into our thoughts and just how excited we are to read this book.

Lately, I have been reading a few books that are not my normal and I have to say I am enjoying this stepping out of my normal.  This will be my first book by Christina Lauren.  I have seen some really great buzz for some of her previous titles and I jumped at the chance to get my hands on My Favorite Half-night Stand.  This one really is a leap into the unnormal for me.

After reading the first few pages I have to say I am intrigued and really looking forward to this Traveling Sister group read.

My Favorite Half-Night Stand by 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.
