Friends With Partial Benefits 
 3 of 5 stars false 
Jillian Grayson is a disillusioned divorcĂ©e and best-selling romance novelist who can’t write a chapter without her hunky male heartthrob suffering ED, an STD, or even worse. Brian Nash is a tennis-obsessed, college senior who’s in love and the roommate and best friend of Jillian’s son, Rob. When Rob brings Brian home for spring break and he meets the surprisingly young and also tennis passionate Jillian, their shared interest quickly develops into an intense mutual attraction. After nearly giving in to their feelings, they hatch a plan, while under the influence (of something more than just the perfect Miami night), to be Friends With Partial Benefits complete with rules to define the boundaries. Will the lonely pair continue with this distinctive relationship, actually explore their desires or will they discover all of it is a really bad idea?
Filled with passion, longing, surprises and humor, the first book in Friends With… Series is hard to put down and will leave you laughing out loud and slightly sleep deprived.

Review

****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Jillian is a recent divorcee, she caught her husband cheating and has been having bad experiences with men ever since. Her son Rob comes home for spring break with his best friend Brian, Brian and Jillian are attracted to eachother but don't want to act on it because of Rob. I honestly can't tell if I loved this book or hated it, I gave it three stars because I am still undecided. The book was full of humor, I liked the interactions between Brian and Jillian. However, the sex scenes were bad, like really bad. They were somewhat crude and I found myself zoning out while reading them. The character Victoria was more of a distraction, I don't feel like she added anything to this particular story but rather the author was setting it up for her to have her own book. Parts of this book were really good and that's what kept me reading
