Just Friends With Benefits follows Stephanie as she deciphers mixed messages and crossed signals. What happens in the rare case when a missed opportunity re-presents itself? Should you leave well enough alone (and continue to wonder ‘what if’), or go for it (and risk changing history forever)? The story—much like any good relationship-- has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, and certainly does not leave you hanging.
It would be hard to find a girl who cannot relate to some part of her story. And that, ultimately, is what makes a great leading lady [lady= someone who loves her alcohol and baseball as much as she does her dresses and heels]. Even if you don’t have a ‘what if’ guy, a male best friend, or a supportive boss, you will still “get” Stephanie.
Stephanie is a great character, surrounded by great friends. Schorr created a cast of characters who could be plucked out of any of our lives. Again, what makes this story so relatable, is the honest and raw look at a group of friends, and all those personalities that contribute to the dynamics of the friendship—the guy who’s obnoxious but lovable, the girl who’s prissy but loyal, the inside jokes, the teasing, the pop culture references…they all combine to make this a spectacular book.
