Friends Without Benefits is another great story in the series and gives a better insight into not only Elizabeth but the other members of the knitting group, too. (Which has only made me more excited to read more about them in the future!)
The romance in this story is between Elizabeth and Nico, the first boy she slept with. It's a 'first love with a twist' story as Nico wasn't Elizabeth's first love though she was his. The progression of their relationship is interesting and the novel has a satisfying conclusion.
Another thing I really enjoyed about Friends Without Benefits was the two versions of chapter 22, giving the reader a chance to choose for themselves just how much detail they want in their love scenes. I've never seen it done before but really appreciated having the choice!
If I had to find fault with this book (and really, it's a minor thing), it would be the lack of Janie, the narrator from the first novel. Though I understand this is Elizabeth's story and therefore she takes centre stage, I felt it a little bit odd that Janie wasn't there to support Elizabeth through some of the difficulties she faced. In the first novel, Elizabeth was there for Janie throughout everything despite working incredibly long hours - in this one, Janie seems too distracted by Quinn (and who can really blame her! ;)) to be completely aware of what's going on with her best friend. It's just a little niggle and certainly not one that ruined my enjoyment of the book at all.
All in all, another brilliant story by Penny Reid. I'm very much ooking forward to the next one!
Elizabeth is a hardworking MD with no time for a proper relationship. She suffered a deep loss when she was 15 and has never really moved on.
Nico was her childhood nemesis, and best friend to her high school boyfriend. One night, when she was 16, she gave him her V-card and then left the US to live in Ireland for half her senior year, cutting off all communication with him. When she came home, he had dropped out of school, left town and disappeared off to NYC to make a name for himself. These days, he’s a top comedian, known as The Face, due to his gorgeous male model looks.
The first time they come face to face again is when he brings his niece to her hospital.
Old, confused feelings ignite within Elizabeth, which aren’t helped by Nico’s relentless pursuit of her, and she struggles to deal with her feelings and her issues. Is she willing to put herself out there and risk her heart, again?
Such a wonderful storytelling style, full of humour, loaded moments, and real chemistry. Love, love, love this author!
I love how we get to understand Elizabeth, why she is like she is. We get to see more of the woman we met in Neanderthal Seeks Human, see why she's like she is, what makes her think, why she treats men like she does. She's part of a group who meet once a week to knit, not quite the standard people you'd think would be in a knitting group, these are just the sort of people you want as friends, they'll back you up, help you get drunk, even bury the bodies, definitely cross the country with you to help you get your man.
We also meet Nico, , fall in love with him, his humour, his intelligence, his faults, his family. Oh boy I love his family!
Go read this book, but first go read Elizabeth and Quinn's books, Neanderthal Seeks Human and Neanderthal Marries Human. These books are stand alones (well except the Neanderthal Seeks Human and Marries Human they go together) but develop from each other (and anyway you should always read in order it's tidier) Better still there are more to read after this and even more on the way.
Penny writes well, the two versions of one chapter was a different way to approach sex scenes, I liked the idea though I read both. The Italian translations didn't link well to the text I found reading the book on my Kindle and having the translations page open on my phone stopped the frustration of flicking back and forth. Maybe an edit where the fotnotes pop up when clicked would help. This wasn't enough to lower my star rating though.
A fun engrossing read

I didn't think I could love another couple as much as I loved Janie and Quinn from the first two books. I was wrong. Penny continually surpasses my expectations with her writing. Read morePublished 2 months ago by KatyLW1
