Best Friends with Benefits
Most Likely To #1
By: Candy Sloane
Releasing March 14, 2016
Valerie Barkin and Alec Rogers survived bullies, awful parents, and seriously shitty social standing the only way best friends can—together. But with the unexpected sexual tension suddenly flaring between them, surviving their ten-year high school reunion might be a different story…
Val hasn’t changed. She still feels like the stringy-haired band geek the popular kids teased, but Alec has definitely changed. He’s now the front man for the Grammy-winning rock band Chronic Disharmony, with the sexual reputation to match. And he’s more than willing to help Val rock the reunion.
And then it happens—a drunken game of Seven Minutes in Heaven—and their fourteen-years-long foreplay comes crashing to the forefront…changing everything.
Seven minutes turns into a weekend of mind-blowing, no-strings-attached sex. But these best friends won't be able to leave their hearts out of it forever, not when the most meaningful benefit could change their relationship for good....

Reese's Review:I really wanted to like this book since I love Brazen’s books but Best Friends with Benefits was just not for me.
Valerie and Alec have been best friends almost their entire lives but they haven’t seen each other in ten years due to a misunderstanding and careers. Now it’s time for the two nerdy kids to attend their high school reunion and that’s when things get complicated. They find that after ten years they no longer feel like just friends, now they’re attracted to each other.
So I had some major issues with this story, I wasn’t buying Valerie’s and Alec’s friendship. They had very little inside jokes and they were just awkward around each other from page one. The characters weren’t very complex and very one-dimensional. There was next to no dialogue which is a big pet peeve of mine. It was all super repetitive and just nothing special.
