Title: Friends With Benefits
Author: Hazel Kelly
Genres: NA, Romance, Contemporary
Publication Date: August 8, 2018
Carter’s been crazy about Nina since the first time he saw her emerald eyes, but his fratastic reputation landed him in the friend zone before he even had a chance to say, “How you doin’?”
So when Nina suggests they become friends with benefits, he can’t believe his luck.
After all, once he’s gotten in her pants, winning her heart should be easy… right?
When the author reached out and offered me to review her book, I read the synopsis and didn’t think too much about it and accepted it. So, a few weeks have passed and I have exactly no idea what this book is about but still, I have to read it since I already agreed to do it and review.
But when I read this story, it was nothing like I was imagining it to be. Sure, the book is about romance of two college people falling in love but it was much more than that. I really was not expecting so much sensual and steaminess that I got while reading it. It was to the point that I have to think to myself that do they do and think about anything else other than that?
Honestly, I have a limit for those scenes and I find that this book is just way too much for me that I even wished that I haven’t read it. But with that aside, there are so many stories in movies and books that have proven over and over again just how messy the idea of friends with benefits can be. Sure, Nina didn’t want attached feelings after all the messy past relationships that have one by one let her down but she just have to take her chances and you’ll never know, it might all just work out.
This story basically only revolves around them and their activity with one another. Nothing else, pretty much happens but it was just an okay read for me. Their banter and remark is pretty much one of the things that made me cave through this book. For now, I just need to chill with some laid back of a book instead of one that is so sexy and intense.
