Jason Richards is a plain and safe kind of guy. He recently began working at a prestigious law firm and aspires to make partner. When the dud case he has dumped on him is settled, he receives a $4-million bonus. Jason shares the news about his good fortune with Steven Cox, the other black attorney at the firm. Steven casually introduces Jason to the eight-step Titan lifestyle, in which men abide by a code of conduct. Steven rationalizes that with his good looks and charm and Jason's money, they can become a powerful team and truly live the Titan lifestyle. Jason begins to fall for Carol, a woman from his past who is following Diva magazine's friends-to-lovers plan. Jason follows the instructions to lure Carole into a friendship with benefits while living the Titan lifestyle with Steven. Just when Jason gives up the lifestyle and Carole is convinced the plan is working, Jason's indiscretions are exposed. Their relationship is in turmoil, and only real friends will be able to weather the storm. An engrossing story. Lillian Lewis

Carole Brantford works at a non-profit agency. Her sole intent is to help others, but she just can't seem to help herself. In and out of relationships, she feels like she'll never find "the one." Finally, with advice from her good friend Marcia and the help of a magazine, she begins to realize that in love, there are no set "rules" and you have to play your cards to win, but with the right person.
These two never anticipated running into each other again; there are still scars from their college days. Carole hasn't gotten over what happened in their relationship and still holds a bitter grudge against Jason. Although they have a close, mutual friend in common, he just wants to stay out of her way. Will they ever put aside their difference to really come to know and understand what's important in life?
FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS was an easy, light-hearted read. From beginning to end, I found myself laughing and thinking about situations where I could recall reading a magazine and trying to follow the advice, realizing that it was very misguided. Lawrence Ross does an excellent job of showing how you can be easily influenced when you want to fit in, and the beauty of being exactly who you are. The book also highlights the dangers of putting your trust in people you don't know too fast and too soon. Definitely an eye-opener, the title of this book holds meaning to so much more.

After a messy breakout and long absence, Carole accidentally reconnects with former college boyfriend, Jason Richards. After putting past pains aside, she decides reluctantly to give Jason another chance. Ross details what happens when friends with benefits elevate to a committed relationship. When emotions interfere it is not always smooth sailing. Filled with hilarious, laugh out loud moments as well as beatdown, make you want to slap your mama antics, Ross delivers a page-turning experience. I would be remiss if I did not mention that these friends have active libidos and almost every other page it seems as though they are on the prowl for the next sexcapade. Some of the sex scenes are graphic and off the chain and might not be the faint of heart. Romance is out, lust is in and libidos are active-if you are looking for a few tips to spice up your sex life FWB might have a few to offer. A fast paced plot and raw, juicy sex scenes make this an enticing and steamy read.

Friends with Benefits starts off slow but quickly builds to a fast-paced, page-turning story that you will enjoy; however, I was a little disappointed with the ending but overall, the book is a great read. I give this book 4 stars. Reviewed by Shay C of PeoplewholoveGoodBooks
