GENRE: Romantic Comedy
BLURB: Just Friends With Benefits
When a friend urges Stephanie Cohen not to put all her eggs in one bastard, the advice falls on deaf ears. Stephanie’s college crush on Craig Hille has been awakened thirteen years later as if soaked in a can of Red Bull, and she is determined not to let the guy who got away once, get away twice.
Stephanie, a thirty-two-year-old paralegal from
, is a seventies and eighties
television trivia buff who can recite the starting lineup of the New York
Yankees and go beer for beer with the guys. And despite her failure to get
married and pro-create prior to entering her thirties, she has so far managed
to keep her overbearing mother from sticking her head in the oven. Just Friends
with Benefits is the humorous story of Stephanie’s pursuit of love, her
adventures in friendship, and her journey to discover what really matters. Washington,
”Maybe I was hoping to hear something a little bit more interesting.”
“Like what?” I mumbled, “Details about our hot sex last night?” before I could stop myself. It wasn’t an ideal way to open a dialogue about what was happening between us, but it was something.
“Found it,” Craig said before patting his GPS lovingly. “I don’t know what I’d do without this baby.”
I gazed at him in confusion until a look out the window confirmed we’d arrived at the train station. While Craig parked his car, I muttered, “That was quick.” He probably hadn’t heard what I said and now my opportunity to discuss “us” had disappeared in his rear view mirror and I had no idea when I’d have another chance. Maybe it was the universe urging me not to push. I stepped out of the passenger seat and followed Craig to the back of his car. While he opened the trunk to remove my bag, I watched a young couple exchange a tearful goodbye. Craig handed me my duffle bag. “Here you go. Are you okay waiting here by yourself?”
I glanced at my watch. My train wouldn’t arrive for another twelve minutes. We didn’t have tons of time, but it might be enough to discuss getting together again.
“I’d stay with you, but it’s going to get dark soon, and I have a long ride ahead of me.”
