Review: Friends With Partial Benefits by Luke Young

Friends With Partial Benefits by Luke Young

Jillian Grayson is a disillusioned divorcĂ©e and best-selling romance novelist who can’t write a chapter without her hunky male heartthrob suffering ED, an STD, or even worse. Brian Nash is a tennis-obsessed, college senior who’s unlucky in love and the roommate and best friend of Jillian’s son, Rob. When Rob brings Brian home for spring break and he meets the surprisingly young and also tennis passionate Jillian, their shared interest quickly develops into an intense mutual attraction. After nearly giving in to their feelings, they hatch a plan, while under the influence (of something more than just the perfect Miami night), to be Friends With Partial Benefits complete with rules to define the boundaries. Will the lonely pair continue with this distinctive relationship, actually explore their desires or will they discover all of it is a really bad idea?

Filled with passion, longing, surprises and humor, the first book in Friends With… Series is hard to put down and will leave you laughing out loud and slightly sleep deprived.

My Thoughts:
This book is hilarious. I spent most of the book smiling or outright laughing. There are some very funny situations, including Jillian's dating experiences and trying not to get caught by Jillian's son (who is also Brian's best friend and roommate). I liked Jillian and Brian and was rooting for the couple despite the age difference and everything else they have going against them. I had to keep reading just to find out what could possibly happen next. Jillian's outrageous friend Victoria is particularly over-the-top. Not for the easily offended, but if the crude sex talk doesn't bother you this is a fun read. There is a more explicit version of this book, but this one was enough for me. I would like to continue the series to see what happens to these characters next.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!!
*Notes: Crude language, profanity, and drug use.
