This was such a fun book and I loved the way it was written. It incorporated text messages send from different characters in the book and gave you a hint as the story is told who was really writing a certain message. I throughly enjoyed all the characters in this book which included a group of friends, 5 guys and a girl who is Millie Morris. She an extremely smart woman who is a professor at UC Santa Barbara. She is funny, witty but also has had her ups and downs in life. When she begins a friendship with a group of guys that she works with she soon realizes that she has stronger feeling than a friendship for one of them and he may have feelings for her as well. Christina Lauren does it again and I was completely hooked from beginning to end with this book. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It’s my third favorite book was hers right after The Unhoneymooners and Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating.
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.
