Friend (With Benefits) Zone (Review Post)

Published June 27, 2017 by bookbesties


I’m ridiculously attracted to my best friend.

Today is a bad day. The worst actually. After dealing with the constant manhandling that comes with being a cocktail waitress at a dive bar and surviving a date from hell, I see an eviction notice slapped on the door of my sketchy basement apartment. Great.

When my best friend Devon shows up at my door and uses his stubborn charm (emphasis on stubborn) to get me to move in with him, I give in. We’ve had about a million sleepovers since we met in the kindergarten Deaf program, but this time it’s different because I can’t stop thinking about his hard body covering mine, every single night.

I know Devon would do anything for me, but I’m afraid what I want to happen will ruin our friendship forever. And the more time we spend together in close quarters, the harder it’ll be to resist the spark of attraction I’ve always felt. But maybe it’s possible to have the best of both worlds: keep the one relationship I can’t live without and indulge in an attraction I can’t deny.

I guess the only thing we can do is try…

I was really excited for this book, I mean come on, how many H and h’s in a romance are both deaf? Originality on this was great and I couldn’t wait to dive in. However I kept thinking that I missed a vital part of the story. There were back dated snippets to tell of Jasmine and Devon’s friendship, but I didn’t really get the gravity of their friendship. I felt totally disconnected from both the characters in the story and for me, I couldn’t quite follow the story line. While I enjoyed the ‘breath of fresh air feel it’ gave me, it didn’t live up to what I had hope it would.
