About the Author

Luke Young is the author of Friends With Partial Benefits and the rest of the Friends With... Benefits Series and the novel Shrinkage.             

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/

Everyone gets caught up from time to time on those parts of our life we 'think' need improvement, this story is a great testimony to the fact that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and sometimes people get way too hung up on little things (Erm... no pun intended). It's an awesome look into a man's mind and somehow comforting to know they have just as many hang-ups as we women do. Nothing heavy or life-altering here just a devilishly fun read that will make you laugh out loud.

never heard of Luke Young, but he writes a pretty funny debut novel. Twistedly funny and entertaining. If you are male or have a penis or know someone who has a penis, you'll get a kick out of it. And at $5 you really can't complain about the price.

After numerous rants on the late night Postivac infomercials, and that Medicare will fund a fix for the broken male I just had to take a second look when I saw this book. I found it very humorous and entertaining. It brings a comic twist to the topic of male enhancement. Proves the old saying bigger is not always better!! :) Also a reminder that No, you might not want to know what is going on behind that closed door.

So an ugly, fat balding guy has a hot girlfriend and a small package. Girlfriend leaves him for that small problem, rather than his other faults. So he decides to add some pills to the other dubious supplements he's taking, which gives him a horse sized trouser snake, more hair and lots of muscles in the space of a week. This of course leads to multiple sexual encounters because all women instantly know and MUST sleep with the loser they used to ignore when they find out he's packing. Comedy follows.

After awhile, I just got bored. Yeah, it's a funny book, but there are only so many schlong jokes out there. If anyone made porn films with plot anymore, this would be a good script. So, I'm giving 2 stars to the script for a porno.

Men who like a good Judd Apatow movie like 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN and women who appreciated the racy humor in SEX AND THE CITY should enjoy this book. Don't let the super-raunchy prologue fool you, this book is crude, but super funny and has a little bit of heart.

I picked this one up as a freebie filler--faced with 3 highly anticipated books all getting published on one day I couldn't decide which to read, so I read this instead. It was a good choice.

The book is relatively short--3200 'kindle locations' worth of reading for the story, plus the intro to the author's next published book. The focus is on an average guy with somewhat less than average endowments and a series of life events that lets him live on the other side for awhile. The conflicts are mild, the spiciness is R-rated (mostly), and the humor is definitely present--more than one 'he did not just go there' moments! I think the only obvious joke missing was the 'it's not the size of the ship, but the motion of the ocean' one.

I do believe this is the author's first book...and it does show a tad, but thankfully he had the help of an editor and this makes the book a lot better than a lot of the other indie stuff out there. This was good enough I now have his next title on my 'to buy list' (I still have those other three books to read still...).

I do recommend downloading a sample, but I'm pretty sure the title, book description and cover do a great job of letting you know what you are getting into. I very much enjoyed this read!

Recommended!

If you're a fan of Christopher Moore, you'll like Luke Young, and seriously, that's just about the best compliment any writer could ever ask for :)
