The Friends With Benefits Series

Best friends Jillian Grayson and Victoria Wilde could not be more different. Victoria, a widow who has really gotten on with her life, is wild, carefree, and living life to the fullest while Jillian, a bestselling romance novelist, is straight-laced, proper, and reserved. That is until Jillian meets Brian Nash, the young, hunky best friend of her college-aged son…

Meanwhile, Victoria has set her sights on her first monogamous relationship in more than two years. An ambitious goal, to say the least. She is soon let down by her new man, who it seems cannot rise to the occasion quite as often as she’d hope; the disappointment and subsequent limitations on her sexual life send her into a mild depression and give her time to coach Jillian in just what one does with a younger man…

These two women provide the vantage point on the hilarious and steamy world of the Friends With Benefits series. Populated with strong, sexy women and fun-loving, real men, the books are at once playful and very sexy; light but large-hearted. If you love sexy contemporary romance with a healthy dose of fun, you’re certain to join the ever-growing ranks of Luke Young fans around the world.

Here are the 5 books in the series. The story-lines are definitely connected, but they can be read as stand-alone novels. There is also a prequel series and the first book, Friends Wanting Benefits, will be available on March 24th, 2014!

There is also a 40,000 word prequel, which Young wrote under his “spicier” pen name Ian Dalton.

      • Thanks for your comment. As I read it I came up with an idea for a scene. Thanks for the inspiration. It wasn’t whether or not they were going to have a baby, because that’s already been worked out. It has to do more with the, let’s call it the journey toward parenthood… 🙂
