Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 384 Pages
POV: Multiple First Person
With a world-famous speaker at their university, Millie Morris and her four woefully single male colleagues make a pact that they’ll all find dates.

But when she creates a fictional name for a new account, Millie finds herself vying for the online attention of a man she sees every day in the flesh.
*I received this book free from Gallery Books via NetGalley.*
Millie and her four single guy friends are kind of like a geek squad. Scientific minds, zero game. Which is why they decide they need dates for a special upcoming event and decide to try a dating app. Of course before everyone’s profiles go live Millie and Reid cross that invisible best friend line and have a night both will never forget making it a little difficult to go back to the way it was before. Although they both give it a try, they keep finding themselves unable to keep their hands (and bodies) to themselves.
“I really, really want sex tonight,” she admits. “Specifically, I’d like sex with you, but if you’re weirded out by this, then it’s cool if you leave and I dive into the drawer of sin in my bedroom.”
When Reid gets a match on the dating app who seems sweet and beautiful it drives Millie a little green with jealousy so when her second profile matches up with him she can’t help, but respond. Although her intentions are pure at the beginning she realizes that she likes being open with Reid like this. She can be herself without feeling likes she’s oversharing her emotions. Problem is she’s falling for him and he doesn’t even know it’s her, which leaves him confused because he wants them both.
Even best friends can’t always survive deceit, but add in a broken heart on top of it and nothing will ever be the same.
My Favorite Half-Night Stand is endearing with sprinkles of humor. I loved the comradery between the friends. They all had such unique personalities that their friendship actually held the book together. The were the glue while Millie and Reid figured out their stuff. Can’t beat a book with several wonderful characters!
