This is a review for an Adult Romance Novel, which mean’s there will be foul language, swoon-worthy guys, curly desirable woman and great detail scenery. You have been warned!
There aren’t many Romance novels that can’t honest hold my attention without the physical romance scene, until I read Modern Girl’s Guide to Friends with Benefits by Gina Drayer.
I gave this book a solid
This book not only held my attention throughout the more erotic scenes but also held my heart once the characters left the bedroom. I found the characters not only entertaining, yet also relatable. It’s extremely refreshing to read a novel about a thirty year old female protagonist whose living a life of male-free-independence, rather than the more common age differences between a strong male figure and a naïve fresh face female who needs Alph-male protection. I found that this novel held a great balances between the more complicated factor of male and female relationship, respecting once independence while also being romantically-respectfully-dominances, aka FWB.
The tone of the novel constantly changed during the rise and fall of the scenario outside of the bedroom. It not only help my attention but allowed me to feel the tension between characters. The overzealous fan taking liberties away from the fictional author in the novel. The tone was even more true to reality when politics, public image, along with the acceptable gender roles between men and women were thrown into the plot of the novel.
Beyond the tempo I love the fact that the characters are successful individuals, who are confident in what makes them happy, or kinky in some cases, but they also have their vulnerable. One scene that illustrated this factor while managing to steal my heart is Megan vs Spandex. Honestly what person doesn’t have body issues! But lover by didn’t see her as faulted, nor did he compare with a twenty-something or other women instead he did what any great man would do, he loved every inch of her body without hesitation, why banishing the death viper grip garment commonly known as spandex!
“Even a woman as spectacular as I am still needs a little help from time to time. If you haven’t noticed, I’m not exactly perfect.” She wasn’t anything like the false dentate and models he preferred. She sure hoped he like real and awkward because that’s about all she had to give . . .
“Meg, you’re beautiful.” Peter grabbed the garment . . . “And these things are fucking awful. Don’t ever wear them again.”
My favorite character in the novel is Peter, because Peter constantly makes mistakes. *sigh* I’m married, to a Peter, someone that can’t seem to get it prefect on the first attempt but tries his hardest on the second. I fell in love with fictional Peter the moment he became conflicted. Peter had the most character development and the most amazing character growth that I’ve ever seen in a male from a Romance Novel.
This novel is just an amazing read that I am going to recommend to my male/female friends. I’m excited to have had the opportunity give to me by Victory Editing, to read The Modern Girl’s Guide to Friends with Benefits by Gina Dryer, for an honest review. If you’re interested in reading this book, don’t worry the book was published on Jan 15th and available for eBooks.
