Title: Friends with Benefits
Author: Laura Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My Rating: 4 out of 5
A high-flying investor
New Yorker Jake Harrington loves a lot of things about living in London: his lucrative hedge fund job, the way British women melt at the sound of an American accent, being thousands of miles away from the girl who betrayed him. And, oh yes, his just-sex arrangement with his gorgeous roommate, Jess.
His sexy British flatmate
Jess’s deal with Jake suits her fine. No commitments, no risk of being hurt again, just fun and friendship. And friends do each other favors, like agreeing to go on a trip to New York where Jake will have to face his past.
And a vacation that will change everything…
What friends shouldn’t do? Suddenly find themselves feeling something much more complicated than simple lust. When “no strings” is no longer enough, will Jake be willing to take the ultimate gamble?
My Review of Friends with Benefits
This is the third book from the Brits in Manhatten series, however, each of the books can be read as a standalone story. Friends with Benefits follows main characters and flat-mates, Jake and Jess. Best friends, flat-mates and also having a just sex arrangement – which suits them both just perfectly.
Both Jess and Jake have been hurt from past relationships, so the no commitment of the just sex arrangement suits them both. However, on a week away in the Hamptons, everything changes for them both. Could this be the start of an actual real relationship for Jake and Jess, or are they both just too consumed by the hurt from their past relationships to realise how happy they both could be together?
Friends with Benefits is such a fun read, with brilliantly written characters, packed full of fun, love, laughs, and emotions. A perfect read to cosy up with on a cold Autumn weekend.
