Publisher's Summary

Jillian Grayson is a disillusioned divorcée and best-selling romance novelist who suddenly 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 Brian meets the surprisingly young and 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 discover all of it is a really bad idea?
NOTE: This book contains explicit language, sexual content, slightly inappropriate humor and is recommended for mature audiences who like that sorta thing. This book is also a less explicit version of Ian Dalton's novel Inappropriate Thoughts. For more information, please see Luke Young's Amazon author page.

Funny Unconventional Light Romance

What made the experience of listening to Friends with Partial Benefits the most enjoyable?

It was funny. Expect it to have some really awkward nude scenes that are going to have you blushing and giggling/ laughing like a crazy person. Well at least it did for me!
This story also covers a pretty wide range of, let's say, unconventional (some people may find tabooish) sexual situations and relationships. If you really aren't comfortable with sex scenes or well the above statement you may want to skip this one. It also containscontains recreational and accidental drug use/ misuse and porn.

Now that we got that out of the way, let's get into what made this slice-of-life story a good listen for me. I love how it approaches what could be rather touchy subjects, and makes them into a so-funny-I-think-I-peed-myself, light hearted, believable situation. The main one being the I fell for my best friends mother a much older woman (who happens to write erotica). Although that's not what it seems to be either. There are so many more "unconventional" topics thrown in here I can't even count them all. The absolutely goofy completely awkward situations are so out there it was entertaining to say the least. Yet somehowsomehow it stayed realistic, like you could actually see that happeninghappening to you (although it would probably be one of those memories you'd rather never see the light of day).

I will note I found the H way too wishy washy for me, but what can you do? He balances out in the second book.

At the end of the day I'd say this was well worth the listen and had a really great plot with more depth then I figured it would have. Definitely worth the buy at the fantastic whispersync price especially since the kindle book was free! My only complaint is that audible only has this one book and you are pretty much left hanging with loose ends. Not cool at all :/ But the second book is on kindle so I will go ahead and read it. Definitely worth it!


Which scene was your favorite?

I thought the work out room scene with the treadmill was hilarious.
