Welcome everyone to another big week on the Writer's Revolution. I am your host, the author of The Phoenix Blade, Andrew Hess. Today we'll be reviewing Friends with Full Benefits by Luke Young.
Plot: This is the continuation of Brian and Jillian's romantic saga. The story picks up right after Friends with Partial Benefits left off. Brian and Jillian have declared their love for each other and working out how to continue their relationship. They're biggest concern has become how to tell their families; including Jillian's son and Brian's best friend Rob.
Review: Friends with Full Benefits was definitely an interesting read. It picked up where the first book left off which was great. It gave us some of what we were missing before the first ending. I loved the first half of the book. It had great comedy; especially when Rob eventually finds out about Jillian and Brian.
It was evident from the beginning that the book would have a different twist added to it. Although I loved the progression of Victoria's character and the introduction to Jim (Brian's brother), I felt the story became too jumbled. The beginning focuses on Brian and Jillian's relationship and how they broke the news to his parents and her son, but quickly became too focused on Victoria and her struggle to battle her own emotions of love and sex. It was a great story all on its own, but found the sporadic individual chapters featuring Brian and Jillian or Rob going on a job interview was distracting and confusing to add in with the ongoing Jim and Victoria plot.
Despite the minor hiccups, I felt the general plot was developed well and the story gave the readers everything; comedy, drama, sex, and a nice twist ending.
