Ryan takes care of his friend Trevor’s house while he’s out of town, meeting Trevor’s friends and settling into his life. Then Trevor comes home to find Ryan and their friend Ethan in his bed. Ryan only has to watch Trevor and Ethan together to know they’ve been more than friends for a while. But will the three of them be willing to explore the possibilities of being friends with benefits together?

Three studs, lots of sex, oh, and a little domination. Sound interesting? It should. Plus, it’s hot. What is it? With Benefits by Jenny Urban.

This story's writing is tight and doggoned hot. I felt like I was right there with Trevor, Ryan, and Ethan. It was interesting to see the power exchange between the three men. And talk about heat! I needed a cold shower and I was just reading the story. Imagine being part of the action! Holy cow! As hot as it was, I could also feel the emotions between the three of them. They might like to push the limits, but they still respected each other.

But as much as I liked it, there were more than a couple issues that kept cropping up. I realize this is a short story and I know that there are a lot of details that can’t be threaded in. Still, I wanted to know more about each man. There were a couple times when I has to go back and reread to figure out which man was doing what. I completely was caught up in their lovemaking and that was great, but I still wanted more from them. More details, more individuality. I did enjoy the tender moment involving Trevor. That gave me the sizzly warm fuzzies.

This short little story packs a heat filled punch. If you want a story that will crackle around the edges and warm a chilly March night, then this is the book for you.
