'Stop what you are doing and go get Christina Lauren's My Favourite Half-Night Stand!' That's Normal

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.
