More About the Author

*Watch the short film based on the first novel in my Friends With Benefits series below*

Luke Young's uniquely funny and sexy Friends With Benefits series is what happens when you take a happily married guy who enjoys watching Judd Apatow comedies and force him to watch every episode of Sex and the City (at least that's the story he's going with!).

Luke is the author of the Amazon bestselling five-book Friends with Benefits series, along with the prequel, Friends Wanting Benefits and several stand alone comedies including, his personal favorite, a parody of Gone Girl.

You can find Luke at www.lukeyoungbooks.com or write to him directly at lukebyoung@gmail.com.

Young also writes "spicier" books under the pen name Ian Dalton. If you like your sexy comedy heavy on the sexy, be sure to check out Dalton's Victoria Wilde series. For more information on how Ian Dalton's Victoria Wilde series relates to the Friends With Benefits series please see the "Who Is Ian Dalton" area of his website. http://lukeyoungbooks.com/who-is-ian-dalton/

Enjoyed this book and fun reading.
Margaret E. Haar
This is not a typical romance - it is totally from a male point of view, which means physical sexual attraction is front and center of everything.
Always Cogitating
I loved the story line and all the main characters.

This book was a pleasant surprise from other books in this genre. It was sweet, as well as spicy, and so comical. I just loved it. The characters in this book took you for one wild ride. I don't think I will ever forget it.

This is mainly Jillian's story. She is a romance writer and recently divorced. She caught her husband cheating. Her experience with men since has been a bit of a disaster. Jillian's son Rob and his best friend Brian end up coming home from college on their spring break. Brian and Jillian end up spending some time together during that time. There is a mutual attraction, yet they don't want to act on it. They have so much in common and are a really great match. She is his best friends mother. He is her son's best friend. Not the ideal situation for a romance. Brian is hung up on Natalie someone he had started a relationship with at college. Getting to know Jillian has given him more of a perspective into what he really wants out of a relationship. You can say that Jillian has really introduced him to what could be. The funny thing is the age difference between them is the last thing they worry about. It's Rob Jillian's son, he is so clueless to what has transpired between them. Rob is too caught up in his relationship with his girlfriend Laura to notice.

Through the entire book I was so rooting for Brian and Jillian. They were so humorous whenever they were together. Everyone wants to be with someone that you can laugh and joke around with. This was what they were just themselves. So comfortable and carefree. I just adored them and just about everything in the book. It was so refreshing to read a book that was far from the angst ridden tear jerker books I have been reading as of late. This book will definitely lift you spirits.

Part humor, part romance, part erotica, and ALL enjoyable. I had a hard time putting this one down and enjoyed it from the first page to the last. The author skillfully makes even tennis which I care nothing about entirely fun to read about. The characters felt real and were easy to identify with. You will be mentally cheering on the main characters the whole time. While not in any way kid friendly it never goes so far as to feel like literary porn. Mostly focusing on the teasing and foreplay it was beyond hot. There is quite a bit of humor to be found here as well, though not as much as there was in "Shrinkage" which I also highly recommend. Luke Young has definitely earned his spot on my list of favorite authors.

I would just like to start this review out with a link to an article which gives a clear description of Romance vs Erotica vs Porn:
[...]

I do this because when I read a lot of the unfavorable reviews, the main re-occuring complaint is that it is "porn," with lots of gratuitous and graphic sex. This, however, is simply not true. It is so not true that it in fact makes me wonder if these reviewers even read the same book as me, because the book that I read did not even HAVE a sex scene in it until it hit the 76% done mark. And then it barely described it, instead making reference to it happening, how good it was, their emotional reactions etc, and then moving on to the next morning. There is no graphic description at all.
The story actually centers on the relationship and growing feelings of the two protagonists as opposed to graphic sex scenes, which "porn" writing does. Granted, this relationship starts with extreme physical attraction, lots of nudity, and loads of guilty temptation, but not a single sex act. At least not until there is a scene involving self-stimulation, but that again is not very graphic at all.
Another complaint I see in reviews is an obsession with Anal sex, while there is in fact not a single scene involving anal sex. It comes up in discussion with each of the female characters, but more in the "I do that" or "i have never wanted to do that," or "I haven't done that but I will let you do that" sort of way. There is one point where the author does report that a couple attempted to try it, but they weren't into it and then just moved on.
The one complaint/observation that I will grant is that a number of terms and phrases are overly used, i.e. "he marveled at her perfect ass" is mentioned in various forms it seems about a hundred times.

Allow me to start by saying that for me Luke Young is the male Janet Evanovich. His words flow so smoothly and constantly, while the chapters just fly by leaving you wanting more. Victoria, Brian and Jillian have the most awesome misadventures. I couldn't put the kindle down and read the entire series in 2 days. I can not wait for the new book to be written.

This is the beginning to a great series of books. You get pulled in and laugh at every turn of the pages, you are surprised at the twists and turns it takes. You will want to read every book just to see where he dares to go with it, and are no disappointed. Some of the funniest stuff you will ever read.

I happened across this series and it peeked my interest immediately. I was hooked. It was a sexy hot book to read and can't wait to get my hands on the rest. It's a series I can read again and again and share with my own friend with benefits.
