Friends Wanting Benefits by Luke Young is a well-written book. Mr. Young has given us a spicy but hilarious book that had me laughing out loud more than once while reading it. This is the story of Jillian and George, Victoria and Ethan and their developing friendship. There is plenty of drama, humor and sizzle as these two couples cruise together. The characters in this book are zany but lovable. I totally enjoyed reading Friends Wanting Benefits and look forward to reading more from Luke Young in the future. Friends Wanting Benefits is the prequel to the Friends With Benefits Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I was put off by the beginning of the story, which included mentions of farting and people using the bathroom. That's not what you want to think about when you're reading an erotic novel. But that's not the only cringe worthy part in the book, there are plenty more that I won't mention. I liked how the story focuses on the different love lives of the main couples. Jillian and George are an older couple, who've been married for 20 years and are suffering a drought in the bedroom. I felt bad for Jillian because she's a romance writer, who can't ignite the spark in her marriage even though she tries. As for her husband George, I couldn't feel any sympathy for him, especially after the massage scene. George talks about how Jillian doesn't pay any attention to him, yet he does the same thing to her and during their trip he's always leaving her to go to the casino. Unlike George and Jillian, Victoria and Ethan have an active love life. Victoria is a cougar and Ethan's her younger boyfriend, a majority of their scenes consist of them going at it in different places. I liked how Victoria and Jillian's friendship comes about, and I like how Victoria tries to help Jillian add some spice to her marriage, even though her advice backfires. There are moments where Victoria comes across as ditzy and immature, for instance in one scene where she and Jillian are facing trouble all Victoria can talk about is sex and how she has a jailhouse fantasy. The love scenes were great and the story was okay, but I felt like it could use some tweaking.
Just love how the friendship of the ladies started. Must read you will laugh your a$$ off
