What the community says about Friends Without Benefits (Knitting in the City)
- ""Friends Without Benefits" was hard for me to get into. Nico bullied Elizabeth when they were younger, which caused understandable angst when the two reconnected as adults. Elizabeth's character is sort of understandable, but Nico's character frustrates me - from his career as a comedy show host, to pressing Elizabeth for forgiveness for what he used to do. When a woman pushes you away, take it as a hint! If you want to make up for what you used to do, respect the person you're trying to make up to! Sadly, I was unable to finish this novel."
- "I got this book as a gift, but the gifter (my son's dentist) didn't bother gifting me the FIRST book in the series! Thanks a lot, Dr. Foolamander.... regift much? I gave it a go anyway, but let's just say I was...a littttle bit lost. I had no idea who Elizabeth was, let alone "Nico Manganiello". Instead I just pretended they were my friends Margaret and Harry, and tried to read the book that way. But it still didn't make much sense. Either get the whole series or pass on this!""I am looking for something different to read and I like romance novels so I decided to search for one about friends with benefits. This book fits the bill topically and has a lot of good reviews. However, it is also the second book in a series, and as I haven't read the first, it's not something I could really get into directly. I might check it out, but will probably look for something that's not part of a series."
- "I thought this was a nice "popcorn" book-good writing without any real substance. I like the characters but Elizabeth was almost too sarcastic and bitter for me. I wanted to like and root for her but the way she is written makes it really hard to do so. I felt uncomfortable when reading this book because of the way the characters are so one dimensionally written. I didn't enjoy as much as I wanted to. "
- "The author, Penny Reid, has created a cute, fun novel with very well developed characters. It is a quickly paced romantic comedy that is easy to read and hard to put down. The leading male character, Nico, is a very strong personality and really gets under the skin of the female lead, Elizabeth Finney. "
- ""Friends Without Benefits" is the second book of the "Knitting in the City" series but don't worry, that doesn't require of you to read the first one to understand this. It safe to say that this second book is more of a standalone sequel and there is no need to know anything else before diving into it. "
