    It's crazy...less than a year ago, I had never heard of Christina Lauren or read any of their books. Last November I read Autoboyography and fell madly in love with it (see my review). Earlier this year I read Love and Other Words (see my review), just to see if my infatuation with them was a fluke. (Spoiler alert: it wasn't.)About two weeks ago I read their latest book, Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating (see my review), and had visions of pac...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Gallery Books in exchange for an honest review. “I wonder whether I’m single not because I haven’t met the right person yet, but because I’m not the right person yet.” Okay, at this point I know I sound like a broken record, but Christina Lauren is such a hit or miss author for me. And I honestly feel like their releases alternate between me loving and me feeling “meh” about. Sadly, My Favorite Ha...

    If you’re looking for a light, funny and engaging read, then look no further!This book reads like a favorite chick-flick. (I hope there’s a movie in the making!). I spent half my time envisioning every scene, trying to cast the characters! (Renee Zellweger, Amy Adams or Anna Kendrick?) Ha! Maybe I missed my calling and should have been a casting director!Who says friends of the opposite sex can’t stay “just friends?”So what happens if m...

    Have you ever stumbled upon an author who is so dependable that you can reach for their books when you're needing a certain "something" in your reading? Well, obviously Christina Lauren is a writing duo, but you get the drift... Recently, I'd hit a bit of a snag in my reading; they weren't bad books per se, but after giving a 3 star rating to 5 books in a row (plus one book I simply couldn't finish) I was beginning to worry that something was wro...

    Hilarious, short and sweet!I don’t know whatever I was thinking in taking so long to read a book by Christina Lauren. I will definitely be filling up my TBR with more books from this highly entertaining writing duo. I absolutely adored MY FAVORITE HALF-NIGHT STAND by CHRISTINA LAUREN and the snarky humour had me literally laughing-out-loud! Not too many romantic comedy books will actually bring out that type of reaction from me but this one def...

    5 perfect stars! Who knew I could love a romance novel this much! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ I’m not the typical romance reader, but I have to say, some of the trademarks of the genre are present in this book in spades and made for the most rewarding reading experience. Millie is a young professor at UC Santa Barbara, and her group of friends are all male professors. They have a wonderful social life together, but each is single and looking for a date...

    4 stars!! Christina Lauren are go to authors for me when I want to a fun and entertaining reading experience. They wrote my favorite book of the year (Josh & Hazel) so when this landed on my kindle, I jumped right in. Though this didn’t hit the same love buttons as J&H, I still really loved it and had loads of fun while reading! Millie Morris is a professor who is fascinated by female serial killers. She hasn’t been in a relationship in a wh...

    My favorite thing about this book is the quirky, witty, likable and intelligent characters!Millie Morris is just one of the guys. She is a UC Santa Barbra professor who hangs with her group of male professor friends: Reid (her best friend), Ed, Alex and Chris. She is funny, intelligent yet emotionally guarded and doesn't like to reveal too much about herself. When their university decides to host a black-tie event, the group of friends decide tha...

    *****4.5 STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}Postsex, I feel like a well-used glove, a warm blanket, a body pillow. Soft and warm and sated. But inside, somewhere deeper, I’m a knot of angst. I want Millie. I think I’m falling in love with her. And she just does not see me that way at all.I honestly can’t get enough of Christina Lauren’s writing. They are one of the greatest collaborative duos in the romance genre today. I fell i...

    BOOM!Christina Lauren did it again!!!I’ve read three books from this writing duo this year, and all three got a huge five stars from me! Christina Lauren has a way of creating the most wonderful and lovable characters that you just cannot get enough of... layer that with humor and exceptional dialogue/banter and then top it off with romance, and how can anyone resist?

When Millie creates a profile under a different name and and uses a mysterious photo, she gets matched with her best friend Reid.When Millie and Reid start communicating through the dating website they click immediately and have the best conversations but Reid has no idea he’s been chattin...

    E-ARC provided by Simon & Schuster for an honest review.Coming out of Josh & Hazel's Guide to Not Dating, one of my favorite books of the year, I was convinced Christina Lauren could do no wrong. So this book was a healthy slap in the face. I really, really, really was not a fan. In fact, I think it's the first Christina Lauren book I've encountered where I didn't like the main character, and I hoped she wouldn't end up together with the love int...

    I adore this author duo, love reading the stories they create flawlessly. So of course I couldn’t wait to read this new release by them. If you love best friends to lovers stories this is one you don’t want to miss. Reid and Millie have been friends for a few years, inseparable, the best of friends. So their group of friends decide with an upcoming campus gala, they all need to bring a plus 1 date. This is a stretch for most of the group, whe...

    If a book could just be refreshing for mind and soul, this would be it. My Favorite Half-Night Stand by writing duo Christina Lauren is funny, light-hearted, filled with loveable characters, and charming. Though I (unlike our protagonist Millie) am more of a girl’s girl than a tomboy, I ended up really embracing her ragtag group of guy friends by the end. And Millie herself I felt a bit of kindred spirit with! Add that to a truly fun love story...

    Millie Morris, a professor at UC Santa Barbara, has accepted her perma-single status and place as "one of the guys", but things get shaken up a bit when a drunken celebration ends in a "half-night stand" between herself and her colleague/best friend in the world, the handsome and charming Reid Campbell. Despite sharing a great night together, the two of them decide to stay friends, and even more, to create online dating profiles! When Millie can'...

    This is the first book I’ve read by the author duo of Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, whose pen name is Christina Lauren. They have fourteen New York Times bestselling novels, and I can see why. This is written in such an easy-breezy style, toss in a little bit of love story with a few twists, and a young woman whose heart has a hard time opening up to being vulnerable. When she was eleven Millie and her younger sister Elly were told by th...

    This was my first Christina Lauren book and these two authors made it straight to the top of my auto-read list. Everything and everyone in this story was lovable that the book felt almost a little too short which is by no means the authors' fault and only my love and enthusiasm for this wonderful friends-to-lovers novel.Millie loves her job and her small circle of four friends who consists only of the XY-chromosome variety and are all scientists....

    This was my first Christina Lauren book and it was definitely a witty, amusing page-turner.The story revolves around a circle of best friends with some major flirting going on between two of them and a question of whether honesty is the best policy.Millie Morris is the only female in the group that includes four platonic guys- Reid, Chris, Alex and Stephen. They are all looking for dates for a work event and come up with a group plan to sign ...

    One of the things that Christina Lauren excels at is writing characters that are utterly adorable, likable and so easy to connect with. I would have given anything to be part of this group of friends. They had so much fun playing boardgames, meeting for lunches, going out for a drink or celebrating intimate birthdays. Since they were such a tight knit group, they also decided to go online dating to get themselves a date for an upcoming event - w...

    I'm going to be honest here: My expectations of My Favorite Half-Night Stand were not super high going into the story. I hated Beautiful Bastard, a book that most readers love, and haven't read Christina Lauren since. And, to make matters worse, contemporary romances are my least favorite subclass of romance, and get my consistently lowest ratings. As a result, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed My Favorite Half-Night Stand .The book was funny, ...
