If you want a light, humorous, and don't forget a sweet and spicy read, well this is so what you want to read. So go for it. I did and am so glad I did. I was sucked in immediately and unable to put it down, finishing it in one day which is really hard for me to normally do. What interested me most about reading it was the fact that it's written by a man - and that always makes me curious. Luke Young can write romance well, I have to give him credit. Rob and Brian are college roommates seniors and best friends.

Rob's mom, Jillian is a smutty romance novelist and divorcee - but she's h 3. Rob's mom, Jillian is a smutty romance novelist and divorcee - but she's hot and young she got pregnant with Rob in high school. Brian who's an older student at the age of 26 is struggling in his relationship with his current girlfriend if you can call her that and needs a break from her. So he goes home with Rob on Spring Break. Staying at Rob's house while Rob is constantly out with his girlfriend, Laura - Brian spends a lot of time with Jillian.
Both huge fans of tennis and Jillian having a spectacular tennis court - they find themselves with a lot in common. They play tennis together and talk a lot and start a friendship - while there are other underlying feelings rising to the surface. There is an attraction that can't be denied. I thought that the age difference would bother me - but I ended up being okay with it. Their connection and attraction meant so much more than the fact they are 12 years apart in age. I loved these two together. The sexual tension between the two was palpable and had me holding my breath at times.
And Brian - what a sweetie. He cooks, he's athletic, he's sweet. One of my favorite parts of the book He leaned in close to her and put his hand on her neck. A shiver went through her body as he whispered, "If I don't get inside you soon, I'm going to die. I shall only mention one gripe. I didn't feel it added any value to the book to have anything extra about her, except when she was with Jillian. I didn't care, nor did I want to know more about her.
Twisted Choices (Friends With Benefits Book 2) (English Edition)
I felt like those extra scenes where just that - extra unnecessary scenes. I only wanted to read about Brian and Jillian and found myself skimming the Victoria parts of the book. I really wanted to shake Brian and tell him to wake up at many points in the story. Things worked out how I hoped and Brian was just adorable. This was a cute romance with some spice not overly done that I enjoyed and would recommend if you want a fun, quick read.

If I had paid a cent for this book, I would've been super pissed off and demanding a refund. This was by far one of the worst "romance" books I've ever read. And I am a voracious reader, so that's saying a lot. What should've come off as a fun, flighty, sexually charged book about middle-aged women falling for the taboo younger guy s , this book read like a manual on how desperate divorcees become lecherous, immoral and irresponsible si Thank the gods of the old and new that this book, was FREE!
The author objectified the male characters and devalued the female characters. I was holding out for one at least one character to have some moral compass and not be reduced to being solely driven by their sexual body parts, but to no avail.
I am a total advocate for the uninhibited, sexually liberated, independent and strong female protagonist who learns to rise from the ashes, turn lemons into kick ass lemonade, but there's a fine line with being liberated and flat out loose, the latter of which falls on these characters. This was a quick easy, sometime crude romance.
Written by a man that instantly intrigued me. Hence why I picked it up. It made me LOL at times..
Friends with Partial Benefits
It was OK View all 3 comments. Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews 3. Friends With Partial Benefits was hilarious, sweet, crazy, raunchy, frustrating, and sure a little unbelievable and not without some problems but what it boils down to is that it was a fun story and I did enjoy reading it. A young divorced romance writer finds herself attracted to the young man her son brings home from college for spring break. Is it a little taboo? Jillian and Brian are attracted to each other and even though a few of their actions skirt the line, for the sake of her son and his best friend, Rob, they decide to not act on their attraction…well at least not completely…well at least not right away.
Without going into a lot of detail, the time they spend together during Spring Break makes both of them realize how good they could be together if they were to act on their feelings.
That week offered up some wild and crazy times which had me laughing out loud frequently. The blurb of the book as well as the cover caught my eye when I was checking out the free reads on Amazon. I am so glad I got this one because it was so fun and reminded me a few times of my own college experiences and that of those around me at the time. The story has two settings between the university campus in Georgia where Brian, Rob and Natalie attend and the Miami home of Jillian. Jillian is a famous romance writer who finds herself divorced from her husband of many years because she caugh The blurb of the book as well as the cover caught my eye when I was checking out the free reads on Amazon.
Jillian is a famous romance writer who finds herself divorced from her husband of many years because she caught him cheating on her with a young thing in her own pool. She has made enough from her books that she can live in some luxury with good friends nearby. All is not golden for her in that she has lost her writing muse since the divorce and she's never had a meaningful relationship.
Brian, Jillian's son Rob's friend, is in his final year of university and he's not happy, but at least content to hope for something good to come along with a girl. Until he sees Natalie and her dexterous abilities to pose her body with one leg straight up and one straight down.
He begins fantasizing the possibilities instantly and takes up his courage to get a relationship up with her. Nat sends him mixed signals and tears the guy inside out so that Rob must do a rescue vacay for Brian to get it together and get over Natalie.
Rob brings Brian home to Miami and his mother Jillian determined that Brian will have a great time with the girls on the beach in Florida while Rob gets in some time with his girlfriend. All does not go according to plan, but Rob's mission is successful in ways he did not imagine. Jillian and Brian hit it off instantly over a shared love of John McEnroe and tennis.
The attraction is there, but both realize that there were some pretty huge barriers to exploring their desires- namely Rob. The story has another main character in Jillian's friend, Victoria who is a shocking little piece who has decided to live life to the fullest and has a sex drive that will make everyone envious.
Victoria's story weaves in and out of Jillian's but is also separate. I enjoyed the story and found myself laughing over lots of the goings-on, wowing over some of the steam and sorry for how things happen at other times.
I was so worried about who Brian would choose at one point and groaned because as the reader I saw where it was headed depending on choices made. There was a moment where I really wanted to bop Rob. He totally broke the unwritten code. I'll stay hush hush so I don't spoil it for others. As to pace, it moves along slowly, but surely without being boring. It ended abruptly just at an interesting moment so I am looking forward to book two. Frustrated by writers block, romance novelist Jillian Grayson was looking forward to spending some much needed down time with her son Rob while he is home on spring break from college.
Rob thought it would be a good idea to bring his best friend, Brian Nash, who is in desperate need of some space of his own from his baggage ridden girlfriend Natalie. Jillian and Brian share a love of tennis and soon learn they are also well matched competitors on the court as well. As they get to know each other Frustrated by writers block, romance novelist Jillian Grayson was looking forward to spending some much needed down time with her son Rob while he is home on spring break from college.
As they get to know each other better, an attraction develops between them that neither one could have ever imagined. Acknowledging that acting on their desire is going to complicate their lives even more, they put together guidelines that would keep them tied to specific sexual boundaries. As things heat up, it's going to take more than a few rules to make them stay in their separate rooms and keep their hands off of each other's bodies. Author Luke Young has written a story that focuses on common interests and chemistry more than an age difference and shreds the theory that every woman over thirty is a cougar and every college guy is only out for one thing.
The story is laugh out loud funny with characters like Jillian's best friend, sex obsessed Victoria and hopeless blind dates that are worthy of immediate abandonment. The sex is hot,intense and well written. This is the first book in the series and I recommend this highly and will be looking for more from this author. Jillian is an author of sexy books.
