Schorr's story of Stephanie Cohen, a 30-something paralegal who hasn't had much luck in the long-term love department since breaking up with her college-boyfriend-turned-buddy, is a relatable one. If you've ever had a "what if" moment about the high school or college crush that never turned into something more than simply that, you'll enjoy the twist that 'Just Friends With Benefits' takes when Stephanie goes down that road to act upon the spark she always felt with Hille, her longtime crush who became part of her core group of close friends. You'll especially enjoy this story if you've ever had a crush or romance from the past intrude upon your present, roadblocking you from meeting or pursuing a relationship with a potential better match.

Stephanie is an endearing character whom Schorr brings to life through her clumsy tendencies, occasional self-doubt, and missteps in love that she has to work through in order to grow. Schorr also provides enough depth in the personality traits of Stephanie's close friends to make these characters come to life and fully engage the reader -- enough so to make you cringe at some of the ribbing Stephanie endures and has come to expect.

If you're looking for a fun weekend read, pick this book up!
