I thought that this book would be about two friends having a sexual relationship, but I did not expect to learn so much information from this book. I did not expect to read about violence and sex crimes in this book at all.

After the storm comes the calm. Likewise Friends with Benefits is one of the calm eye-openers of the trouble that the social structure of the human beings gets subjected to, owing to the various narrow minded social hierarchical discriminations that exist within the leaves and folds of a just and responsible up and doing civilization.
A must read for each and every youngster who wakes up in the morning, fulfills the expectations of his or her parents, strives to match to the ideals of his friends

Shahla Khan has done a beautiful job framing a spectacular plot while still being able to provide a serious message to each and every young man and woman out on the street trying to make a name for himself or herself. The plight of every teenager as a novice puppet in the hands of the social structure is put forth on the surface through this book.
Struggles in relationship, Quarrelsome trysts with family, Social Violence, etc. the book very carefully addresses each topic and finds out an amazing
