Collin Harrison loves his life but his mother is driving him nuts by trying to set him up with every single woman she knows. But Collin is interested in someone else…his next door friend, Devin. Confused by his feelings for the man, Collin thinks that he will never get a chance to be with Devin but when Devin tells him he is interested in a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship, Collin jumps at the chance to be with Devin in and out of bed.

Jennifer Labelle writes a story of two friends who have feelings for one another in a way that leaves you breathless. With a few very wicked scenes that leave you fanning your face or jumping into the shower to cool down, to a friendship that the reader feels across the pages, Ms. Labelle delivers one sexy, wicked story that will surely get your lust revved up. The writing was tight, storyline flowed nicely and the characters were nicely well-defined. Sometimes in these short stories, the characters come across as flat and unappealing but not in FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. Ms. Labelle does a great job in creating two characters that jump off the pages and into the room with you.

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS is a short 22 page story so I don’t want to get into too much detail on the story so I don’t spoil it for those who may not have read it yet. If you are looking for an introduction into this author’s writing style, you can’t go wrong in checking this short and sexy read out. I know I am going to check out this author’s backlist of titles soon to see if there is something there to enjoy. FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS is a fun, sexy romp that will leave you panting as you try to cool off. I enjoyed the storyline and hope this author comes back to Collin and Devin in the future in a longer tale. I would love to know how these two made out and if Collin’s mother ever stopped her meddling matchmaking.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
