Just Friends with Benefits
Published by: Henery Press
Release Date: February 14, 2017
When a friend urges Stephanie Cohen not to put all her eggs in one bastard, the advice falls on closed ears. As in one hand over each ear while saying la la la I can’t hear you.
You see, Stephanie’s college crush on Craig Hille has been awakened thirteen years later as if soaked in a can of Redbull, and she’s determined not to let the guy who got away once, get away again.
Sounds like a plan.
Even though it’s been more than a decade since Stephanie has been in the same room with Craig, she’s convinced their reunion, or rather union, is fated. Everyone else in their close-knit group of college friends is paired up except Stephanie and Craig.
Surely, it’s a sign, right?
But if actions speak louder than words, Craig’s mixed signals are screaming contradictions. Lucky for Stephanie, her loyal buddies provide plenty of welcome distractions.
Does Craig require a telescope to see that he and Stephanie are written in the stars or does Stephanie need to get her head out of the clouds to see what’s right in front of her?
This humorous story follows Stephanie’s pursuit of love, her adventures in friendship, and her journey to discover what really matters.Add on Goodreads
Just Friends With Benefits Gets 4.5 Stars From Chick Lit Plus!
“Just Friends with Benefits by Meredith Schorr is an extremely relatable story to all women. Stephanie is a great main character, a fun loving girl who works hard but enjoys a beer and baseball game, who is just trying to find that special someone to settle down with. I loved that I wasn’t quite sure what was up with Craig. I was confused by his behavior right along with Stephanie, and tried to figure him out along the way. My absolute favorite part of this book though had to be the group of friends. Made up of different characters, guys and girls, couples and singles with a variety of different jobs, they reminded me exactly of my friends. They were witty and loud and loving and they gave a perfect oomph to a romance story. I will definitely look forward to reading more from Meredith Schorr.”

“Just Friends With Benefits is a birdseye view into the life and times of the modern single girl. Stephanie is a character every girl can relate to as she navigates the rocky road to romance. Reading this book feels like a night out with your best girlfriend listening to her spill about her relationship. Author Meredith Schorr strikes just the right tone between hope and anxiety, desire and disappointment. I’m looking forward to reading more of Ms. Schorr’s work in the future.”

"Meredith Schorr’s debut novel Just Friends With Benefits was fantastic. Seriously, I loved it. Stephanie, the protagonist, is my exact age, so her feelings, her lingo, and even her flashbacks were more than relatable to me. Even more coincidental, she comments that Zooey Deschanel would play her in the movie of her life, an actress that I have been compared to (especially since cutting bangs a few months ago)…Wait, this book is not about me, but sometimes, while reading, it was hard to remember that."

“Meredith writes with wit, candor, humor and vulnerability that illuminates the struggles of dating and relationships. You can feel her pain. Anyone who is single or once was single can relate to this book!”

“Reading contemporary romance/chick-lit novel, Just Friends With Benefits is like peeking into 30-something Stephanie Cohen’s diary. We get to witness her love life and all the intimate details (read: mistakes) and she makes plenty of them! All the twists keep the reader wondering to the very end who’s “the one” and who’s just friends. Debut author Meredith Schorr is a natural storyteller, able to make you laugh and cry right along wtih her carefully drawn heroine. Like a good friend, I believed in Stephanie, and I loved Just Friends With Benefits.”
